 Yes, She is a one of famous arranger and musician in Japan, known by music of anime films.   Also she composed many TV CM music and film music.
  She was born in Sendai city, Miyagi prefecture at 1964. Sendai city was seriously damaged by 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami. She composed songs for peoples who are living after disaster.
  I am not able to say anime songs are not in same category of classical music, but I believe it is one of culture of my country. Thanks for your interets. Smiley

Thanks for your answer Toby and the extra info from Atsushi.
As with many film music it is effectful music. If it belongs to 'Classical' music? Film music is always in a kind of grey area. It depends heavily on its composer, if we call it classical or light (popular) music.
