The Top Ten

1 Sadness and Sorrow

This is one of the most touching songs I've ever heard. I could literally take a bath using all the tears I've shed after watching Naruto, and all of that came from listening to this song when paired with a death scene.

It suits Itachi Uchiha the best. He made his life a crime a shadow in order to protect the village and the brother he loved.

Every time I listen to it, I cry. It's just such a simple piece of music yet creates a very complex feeling. Absolutely amazing and I've been listening to it for years now and still feel the emotion from this music. Never going to get old.

Every time I listen to this song, it reminds me of all the sufferings that Naruto and others faced.. yet they never gave up.. when the flute is played, I see Naruto standing on the hokages' face with a sad face, like he's recalling all the pain he had faced, but he refused to give up..

3 Rain (Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood)

I love this song is awesome and it really does suit the series fullmetal alchemist very well. I best the entire series could have been based around this particular song. Now then the only issue I have is this song needs to be higher.

Performed by SID, an awesome song by an awesome band, the song is full of emotions & perfectly, sweetly suites the storyline

I love this song! It actually kind of gets along with me... It suits almost everybody! And at times it makes me cry! Really awesome!

This is the best theme song EVER! But, then why is it third?

4 Guren No Yumiya (Attack On Titan)

This song is so powerful. Very well lyrics. Love it so much!

Easily one of the best theme songs ever. The lyrics describe the show's theme perfectly, and the constantly changing beat leaves you wishing it will never end. There are few openings that can top this.

Most epic theme song ever! I could listen to it over and over again and not get bored. Attack on Titan is not my favorite anime show, but I do think it has the best opening theme song.

This is one of those songs that make you want to jump out of your window and jump from building to building. It suits the anime incredibly well and is very iconic.

5 Sign (Naruto) Sign (Naruto)

Watch the anime and feel the pain

Sign is such a catchy and good song (maybe besides the English part 'cause it makes no sense)

Its feels like its totally nostalgic, with reference to the opening scene, especially the part with Sasuke.

I love this song because it's so good and I what to dance to it

8 Tsuioku Merry-Go-Round (Fairy Tail)

It has made me cry, natsu, erza, lucy and gray's sad pasts, and the wonderful meaning and melody, simply the greatest

I love this song... Bet, you're going to play this all over again.

Yeah... I simply adore this theme song... I even know what it means in English... - FennikenFan9

Awesome way to end an awesome episode of an awesome show

This song touched my heart it was so moving I love this song

9 Kagome's Theme Kagome's Theme

From Inuyasha, a particularly haunting melody.

It kinda reflects the longing of Kagome for Inuyasha who was been blatantly ignoring what she deeply feels inside. Kinda like unrequited love.

I love it so very solemn... Like you're in a very peaceful place... Getting out in darkness

Kagome's theme and Inyusha's lullaby are my top favourites ever...! Kikyo's theme is also peaceful but reminds the tragedy of her life and Kagome's theme reflects the girlish joy of Kagome, every time she goes back to the feudal era to meet Inuyasha (and friends).

12 Exorcist (Blue Exorcist)

Just a warning to those who want to search "Exorcist" on YouTube. DO NOT click the one with the ghost face.

This anime had a lot of good musics and songs and the anime was great too.

The songs are called... Episode 1-14=Core pride... Episode 15-25=In my world! Which Core Pride is the best:3

Ren is so cute

15 We Are! (One Piece)

It saddens me on how this is so far down on this list.

The show is beast it's a legend this song is so fun and tells what you will see in this episode

How can this be so low, it's one of the most inspirational songs I've heard

One of the best song ever. It reminds me of my childhood

16 Memoria (Fate/Zero)

One of the best anime endings I have ever heard. Eir Aoi's voice is so beautiful and made me watch every single bit of it. It's hard to believe that I rarely find this song on anime ending lists. It accompanies the anime (which is a masterpiece) and the scenes of the past lives of the heroic spirits beautifully.

This song is very good. Any song from Fate/Zero is beautiful

17 Zoetrope (Amnesia)

This is a very good song. And it needs to be higher.

It is one of the best anime song I ever heard.

One of my favorite Anime OP song. And not only that, the OP sequence was beautiful. Not to forget the PV; it was colorful and unique. I love Zoetrope! ^^
