Top 10 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 a soft sound to it with the ringing that makes it perfect for Naruto.

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.

2 Ichiban no Takaramono (Angel Beats!)

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

One of the best I ever heard. This song deserves to be in the top ten!

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

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 would 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 the anime amazingly. 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. It's awesome and really suits the series Fullmetal Alchemist very well. I bet the entire series could have been based around this particular song. The only issue I have is that 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.

I love this song! It actually kind of resonates with me... It suits almost everybody! And at times, it makes me cry! Really awesome!

5 Unravel (Tokyo Ghoul)

The voice, theme, lyrics, everything is so great that I just can't explain. This should surely be in first place, and what's more, is that 'Again' from Fullmetal Alchemist is as low as 50, where 'Rain' is in 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, combined with the awesome tuning and art, make this song the best.

The other thing I want to say is that the article is for best songs, not soundtracks. That's why I disagree with 'Sadness and Sorrow' being in first place because it's a soundtrack, not a 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, and Your Lie in April Opening 1.

6 Hinata's Theme (Naruto)
7 Before My Body's Dry (Kill la Kill)
8 Los! Los! Los! (Saga of Tanya the Evil)
9 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!

10 Shi-Ki (Shiki)

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

The Contenders
11 Kimi no Shiranai Monogatari (Bakemonogatari)
12 Kagome's Theme (Inuyasha)

Kagome's theme and Inuyasha's lullaby are my top favourites ever! Kikyo's theme is also peaceful but reminds me of 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 reflects the longing of Kagome for Inuyasha, who has been blatantly ignoring what she deeply feels inside. It's kind of like unrequited love.

From Inuyasha, a particularly haunting melody.

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

Very relaxing music which you will replay again and again...

I love this song... Bet you're going to play this all over again.

It has made me cry. Natsu, Erza, Lucy, and Gray's sad pasts, along with the wonderful meaning and melody, make it simply the greatest.

15 Exorcist (Blue Exorcist)

This anime had a lot of good music and songs and the anime was great too.

Blue Exorcist is just awesome!

Such good. Rin is overpowered. Kill La Kill's 'Before My Body Is Dry' should be here, though.

16 Yusuke Power Up (Yu Yu Hakusho)
17 Reluctant Heroes (Attack on Titan)

Lee and Lie do 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.

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 want to cry my heart out.

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

This is one of the best pieces of anime music I have seen.

21 Resonance (Soul Eater)

This song suits its series quite well. What I love about this song is its catchy beat 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's not to love?

22 A Cruel Angel's Thesis (Neon Genesis Evangelion)
23 True Light (DN Angel)

Listen to the piano version. It's beautiful.

24 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 feelings always jumble when I hear this.

25 The Real Folk Blues (Cowboy Bebop)

Perfect. Not sure how this isn't top ten.
