The Top Ten

Death Note Death Note is a Japanese television drama series based on the manga series of the same name by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata. The show is centered around Light Yagami - a promising highschooler and aspiring detective with a strong sense of "justice".

My favorites were L and Mello's themes.

Cowboy Bebop Cowboy Bebop is a 1998 anime television series animated by Sunrise featuring a production team led by director Shinichirō Watanabe, screenwriter Keiko Nobumoto, character designer Toshihiro Kawamoto, mechanical designer Kimitoshi Yamane, and composer Yoko Kanno.

Each episode had a theme that was consistent with the genre of music attached to it and the music played during the episode was fantastic. Also this show has the best opening song ever.

This peaple's are crazy, Why Cowboy Bebop is not in top?!

This show has a kickass OST. My personal favorites are Flying Light, Heaven-Shaking Event, and Spin and Burst

I remember the entire soundtrack nearly perfectly

I love the soundtrack of Bleach! Its more like rock and then a few strange tunes and sounds but all make up a great combination. The music is just perfect for an anime as great as Bleach. It breaks me down to see Bleach so low on this list. My favorite soundtrack is from the first OST - Precipice of Defeat. And I use these OSTs and the ones from Death Note as my study music and it helps me alright. And about this item being so low on this list.. I just looked up a couple of objective lists and both had Bleach in its top 2 for the anime with the greatest soundtrack which means we need to get this to the top ten.

Definition of epic

Precipice of Defeat, Battle Ignition, Enemy Unseen, and Hollow Ichigo are awesome! - TheDarkOne_221b
