It has always been my impression, that listening to the right music can vastly increase a reading experience.
The very best books for me are those I can totally lose myself in. Where their world becomes real when I read them. I can get into this state of mind much more easily when listening to music at the same time.
It usually takes a while for me to find the "right" music for a book, but when I do, I will, from that moment on, always think of the story whenever I hear the music.
Here is a list of music I think fits very well to particular manga stories:
|Manga Title||Manga Artist||Music Artist||Music Title|
|Appleseed||Masamune Shirow||Ryuichi Sakamoto||The Last Emperor|
|Battle Angel Alita (Gunnm)||Yukito Kishiro||Metallica||S&M|
|Dragon Ball||Akira Toriyama||Chris de Burgh||Crusader|
|Magic Knight Rayearth||Clamp||The Cranberries||Bury The Hatchet|
|Nausicaä of the Valley of Wind||Hayao Miyazaki||10 000 Maniacs||Blind Man's Zoo|
|Outlanders||Johji Manabe||Tracy Chapman||Crossroads|
|3x3 Eyes||Yuzo Takada||Soundtrack||3x3 Eyes|
|Video Girl Ai||Masakazu Katsura||Mietta||Volano Le Pagine|
|Wish||Clamp||The Cranberries||To The Faithful Departed|
