Here we have a great examoke of someone who understands what it takes to put together great music. After reading the article I can continue to increase my opinion on the fact that understaning how to connect music with a theme of a show is very important. It helps engross the audience with emotion provoking tidbits throughout the series.

This was a great example of how the producers of the show helped keep the theme of the show with the music. They created a soundtrack that keeps the viewer engaged and connected with the show.

This is the main article that I found and it talks about the relationship between music in the show and our emotions. The article talks about how the show has deep meanings and how the story is sad and full of emotions. The main opening is upbeat and happy which can cause conflicting emotions becuase it preps you for excitement and happiness and once the show starts things go 180 degrees and turn you upside down. I believe that music should match the mood and story of the show so we as viewers can stay connected and have a much more full experience while watching.

This article shows us what kind of passion is put into creating the right kind of soundtrack to fit the series. The person putting it all together knows what the audience wants and what kind of music to put out that best matches the overall theme of each episode.

In this article the author shows how things can go two different ways when matching music to anime. On one hand you can get music that matches perfectly and helps to draw you into the storyline and on the other you can get music that seems to be just "ok" and lacks the passion and falls flat.
