Running Playlist

In real life, I like to run. A lot of the music I run to is anime music (along with some heavy metal and classic/prog rock), so I thought it’d be fun to post my playlist here.

Feel free to shoot me a twitter message or an email if you have any suggestions! I look for songs that are a consistent 160-200bpm (though I get super picky outside of the 165-185bpm sweet spot) with lots of driving momentum and preferably some bombastic cheese.
