    If anyone knows anything about the other non-composer Toshio Masuda, it would be good to clarify in the wiki that there are two.

    The wiki and these pictures don't agree with each other. THIS is the Toshi Masuda the composer, who wrote music for Naruto, Mushishi, etc. NOT the Toshio Masuda you see in these pictures. :((((((

    Mushishi was the first anime which i saw till the very last second of it - because of its beautiful soundtrack. Rare and unique thing to me :) Love it. Does anybody know music like Mushishi OST?

    Toshiro Masuda is a japanese singer. their name is the same in kanji, but not romaji. so please don't merge these.

    Imo the only error they made is that the albums and most tracks that are counted on the other Masuda's page belong here. However, many people have their Naruto and other tracks artistlabeled as either 'Naruto' i.e. or Toshiro Masuda, when it should be Toshio Masuda. Toshio Masuda is the composer of the Naruto soundtrack, after all.
