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.

Amazing. That's all I have to say.

2No Rain No Rainbow (Naruto)

Very nice song... Love it!

It's a very good song

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!

I am overtaken by feelings

4Sign (Naruto)

Watch the anime and feel the pain

From an objective point of view, this song is just marvelous. It mixes tons of feelings at the same time. It should be upagraded.

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.

8Guren 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.

Very Addicting Song! Recommended

9Kagome's Theme

From Inuyasha, a particularly haunting melody.

One of my favourites melody's

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

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

10Glorious Sunshine (Shugo Chara)

This is a great song because it makes you happy and it has a nice tune and the singer nana mizuki has a great voice

It is really good and its lively

The Newcomers

?Teru No Uta (Tales from Earthsea)
?Toui Sora He (Yosuga No Sora)

This music brings me the entire peaceful landscape from the very anime of Yosuga no Sora, though the theme brought by the anime is quite, umm yeah u know.. but otherwise the music is wonderful.

The Contenders

11Eternal Snow (Full Moon O Sagashite)

So sad, yet wonderful

It was my first ever favorite song!

It just gives such nice feelings... I can't get tired of it!

I love it so much! The feels -3-

12Exorcist (Blue Exorcist)

The name of the song is so cool

Blue exorcist is just awesome!

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.

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

15Wind (Naruto)

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

16Zoetrope (Amnesia)

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

I love this song very much!

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

This is the best song I heard
