Yesterday, a moderator for the /r/music subreddit was hacked and the place was turned into an anime themed subreddit. Everyone went crazy and started sharing anime songs!
The mod was kind enough to let users have some fun after regaining control of their account, but the sub has been cleaned up (RIP Weeabo), partly because it was Discussion Friday. Reddit’s Music subreddit has 13,400,506 subscribers and drove some major traffic to the top voted songs.
Some Redditors discovered “the wealth of music that was found in anime” and want to set up monthly or weekly events to continue the anime music exploration journey. This is pretty crazy considering /r/music is largely people who have a very strict definition of “cool.”
Here are some of the songs that has got some Redditors falling in love.
