The first of two PS2 Taiko anime-only compilations, and the last Taiko console game styled after the first arcade generation's graphical style. Waku Waku Anime Matsuri does what it says on the tin: it's jam-packed with nothing but anime songs (and one secret Namco Original).
Released just two months after Sandaime, this Taiko game doesn't have any of the console-exclusive modes from the first 3 Taiko console games. It's also one of the few titles of the series that doesn't feature a single Oni 10* difficulty song in its songlist.
