Best Anime Songs

Songs used in or written for anime movies or TV productions.
The Top Ten
1 Sadness and Sorrow (Naruto)

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.

Naruto was the first anime that I ever watched and every time I experience a sad moment or just watch old episodes this song makes me cry! This is truly the most well written sad song EVER. Anyone who has seen the show would agree and I am thrilled it is number 1

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.

When I came to the list, I saw so many Naruto openings and Posts. Nonetheless, Naruto have some really good songs, both sad and epic. This song is one of the saddest songs I have heard. Although there are much more sadder and better song... Not that I'm complaining...

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!

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

Somehow, right now, that;s my most precious treasure.

This song is very touched, and beautiful lyrics.

3 Guren No Yumiya (Attack On Titan)

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!

Literally the most iconic anime opening in the history of anime openings. Maybe, just maybe, trumped by Cowboy Bebop, but then again, everything is trumped by Cowboy Bebop.

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.

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.

To be honest FMA:B has the best openings around hands down but this one really takes the cake. Not only is the song itself fantastic, but the visuals that go along with it are absolutely stunning. A great song for a great series!

I don't have words to explain how overwhelming this song is especially where trisha appears before edward... this song fits the anime perfectly... great work done... Sid! Arigatou

5 Hinata's Theme (Naruto)

Just like my self

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

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 is the only song among the all anime songs that I heard before watching the series, and I could already feel its incredible depth. TK's astounding voice and perfectly displayed emotions in the vocals, the heavy yet moving instrumentals make UNRAVEL a Prodigious song and easily one of the greatest songs ever..

How is this not in the top five? It's a song that can be used in pretty much any situation. For example, in season 1 episode 12, its used in a fight. in season 2 episode 12, its used for... TG fans will know already. But they are completely different. This is my favourite anime song and my second favourite song.

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 (Inuyasha)

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).

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

From Inuyasha, a particularly haunting melody.

13 Bloody Stream (Jojo's Bizarre Adventure) Bloody Stream (Jojo's Bizarre Adventure) Cover Art
14 Tsuioku Merry-Go-Round (Fairy Tail)

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

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...

Awesome way to end an awesome episode of an awesome show

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

15 Yusuke Power Up (Yu Yu Hakusho)
16 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.

Such good. Rin is OP. Kill La Kill beofre my body is dry should be here though

The name of the song is so cool

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

18 Mousou Express (Monogatari Second Season)
19 No Rain No Rainbow (Naruto)

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

Very nice song... Love it!

And its it's a good song

20 Dear You (Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni)

Brings sad yet peaceful memories of the anime and the soothing sound of the melody made me wana cry my heart out...

A sad and soothing song. The singer's voice is absolutely beautiful!

Perfect beat perfect voice cool everything else

From "When They Cry, " composer unknown.

21 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.

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.

Needs to be higher a lot higher

This needs to be rated 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)

Perfect. Not sure how this isn't top ten

Amazing. Nothing more to say.
