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.

I think this really suits Naruto's childhood. It breaks my heart, every time, to see Naruto all alone on the swing with the music playing and people scorning him as they walk past. If they scorn Naruto, they are no better. The music has the soft sounding to it with the ringing that makes it perfect for Naruto.

2 Ichiban No Takaramono (Angel Beats!)

A very sad, sweet, and soothing song. Explains a sad story throughout the song. The song makes me cry every time!

This song must be the number one

One of the best I ever heard. This song deserve to be in the Top Ten!

Guys! Just listen to the way she plays the piano!

3 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.

Guren No Yumiya suits amazing with the anime. It's very powerful and in my opinion one of the best anime theme songs ever. The beat, the lyrics... Everything about it is amazing!

4 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!

Considering the events that were taking place in the series at the time, I cannot think of a single song that would've fit the theme better than this one. It was calm, it was passionate, all around an amazing song.

5 Hinata's Theme

Just like my self

Nice

It was nice

6 Before My Body's Dry (Kill la Kill)

Don't lose your way, your mind, we must be as of one

7 Unravel (Tokyo Ghoul) Unravel (Tokyo Ghoul) Cover Art

This song always gives me chills. The vocals, the music, everything.

The voice, theme, lyrics, everything is so great that I just can't explain
This should surely be on the first place and what's more is that 'Again' Fullmetal Alchemist is as low as 50 where 'Rain'is on the 2nd place.
And it's not that I don't like 'Rain' but I just think that 'Again is much better the sweet, melodious voice of Yui with the awesome tuning, art make this song the best.
The other thing I want to say is that the article is for best songs not soundtrack that's why I disagree with 'Sadness and Sorrow' being on the first place because it's a sound track not song, the songs that I like the most in Naruto are Naruto Ending 1, 'Blue Bird', 'Sign' and 'Glow of Firefly'
Other songs that I felt should be there are Violet evergarden Ending and Opening, No game no life Opening, You lie in April Opening 1

This song doesn't need any explanation...it is so wonderful even at the times of great sorrow...it fills me with inspiration and enthusiasm

Was recommended by a friend to listen to it. First time didn't think much of it, but as I've listened to it it has become my No. 1 favorite song. Try it. If you don't like it, try it again.

8 Los! Los! Los! (Saga of Tanya the Evil) Los! Los! Los! (Saga of Tanya the Evil) Cover Art
9 Shi-Ki (Shiki)

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

10 Hero's Come Back (Naruto Shippuden)

Another epic theme song I could listen to again and again. It's catchy and it's a great song!

It's all about rap

A brilliant rap

The Contenders

11 Kimi No Shiranai Monogatari (Bakemonogatari) Kimi No Shiranai Monogatari (Bakemonogatari) Cover Art
12 Kagome's Theme Kagome's Theme Cover Art

From Inuyasha, a particularly haunting melody.

One of my favourites melody's

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

13 Bloody Stream (Jojo's Bizarre Adventure) Bloody Stream (Jojo's Bizarre Adventure) Cover Art
14 Yusuke Power Up (Yu Yu Hakusho)
15 Exorcist (Blue Exorcist)

The name of the song is so cool

Blue exorcist is just awesome!

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.

16 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

A very relaxing music which you will replay it again and again...

17 Reluctant Heroes (Attack On Titan)

Lee and lie dose a great cover of it. It's the slower piano version but still just as good. Great song

The best character song I have ever heard. If you have to listen to one song today make it this one

Emotional

18 Mousou Express (Monogatari Second Season)
19 Resonance (Soul Eater) Resonance (Soul Eater) Cover Art

This song suits its series quite well. What I love about this song is its catchy bead with a little darkness to it. But the icing on the cake is the fact that this song goes so well with the opening and the clips and effects are done so well that it just makes this song.

I haven't seen much of Soul Eater, but I HAD to download the song on iTunes! It really pumps me up!

It indeed does go well with the show, is extremely catchy, what can't you love?

This song goes great with the overall theme of the show. Also it's so catchy.

20 No Rain No Rainbow (Naruto)

Home made kazoku the best..

Very nice song... Love it!

It's the most beautiful song I've ever heard. I'm so glad that I was able to hear it.

It is really good for me and my friends with benefits from your mom

21 Dear You (Higurashi) Dear You (Higurashi) Cover Art
22 True Light (DN Angel)

The opening from DN Angel. This song is so beautiful! I love it *0*

Listen to the piano version. Its beautiful.

Vic did a great dub of this

23 Lost My Pieces - Toradora

So glad this is here. It needs to be higher though. Although it's short, it just rips your heart out so quickly.

Great music, my feeling always jumbled when I hear this.

This needs to be rated higher

Needs to be higher a lot higher

24 A Cruel Angel's Thesis (Neon Genesis Evangelion) A Cruel Angel's Thesis (Neon Genesis Evangelion) Cover Art
25 The Real Folk Blues - Cowboy Bebop The Real Folk Blues - Cowboy Bebop Cover Art
