The Top TenXW

1Sadness 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.

This truly the the best song I've ever heard

3Rain (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?

4Guren 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.

I love this song! This song gets stuck in my head for weeks straight, and than I listen to it again and again. The song gets you ready for the great anime series it is!

5Sign (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.

What a song. Spent my days in bed just feeling the power and emotion. Fantastic

8Tsuioku 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

9Kagome'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

Personally all of the Inuyasha songs are great!

11Exorcist (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

13Shi-Ki (Shiki)

Watched many series in my time and this had arguably the greatest opening I have ever seen

14Memoria (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.

15Wind (Naruto)

Most amazing song in history of anime

To be frank, be straightforward or to put it simply... it's beautiful, especially with reference to the anime ending.
