Best Anime Songs

Recommended Posts

I'm starting just a "contest" for fun for the best anime song you've EVER heard. I'll check all of them out. Who knows, maybe I'll find some awesome new anime just by listening to them :)

My favorite anime song:

My Star (another mix) by Yumiko Kobayashi and Kaori Nazuka. (Character Song of Black Star and Tsubaki nakatsukasa form Soul Eater)

I personally love the first ending to Kuroshitsuji.

'I'm Alive' by BECCA

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YtW7-pOPxfk

 

It does happen to be in english, too. I just can't stop humming it!

 

Code Geass - O2 by Orange Range (love this song!!!!)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tNVVnGiT17w

 

I love that song too! I actually just finished R2 last night. I didn't know that was by Orange Range! I used to be into them back when I was a narutard (ahem, pardon me: "naruto fan") in middle school. I really liked the R2 openings better than the first season's openings.

I'm a really huge fan of the music from FLCL (not just the opening or credits, all the music seemed really powerful in the context of the show). It's probably my favorite anime soundtrack. Worth checking out, but there isn't really one song I can claim to be the best. Other than that, the music from the Nana anime was pretty good (I thought), but really really sad lol, so I don't listen to it very much. And like Motoko said, the opening from Ghost in the Shell: Rise, and also Inner Universe, are great tracks

Doesn't Last Dinosaur have another name as well.

 

I remember the sound track had like 3 names for each song.

The US CD only lists it as "LAST DINOSAUR" the JP CD release may be diffrent.

There were three actually, with the third being a compilation of the first two. I miss the Geneon OSTs.

Okay, I'll be serious this time.

 

Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni - Opening Theme

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rKV195eXg7I

 

One of the my favorite opening theme of any anime (the top favorite goes to the Lupin III and Cowboy Bebop OP themes) and the best of the series. This orchestra arrangement is also amazing.

 

Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni Kai - Flower of Hell

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IRe1tt2qUxI

Because you're not a flower from hell.

 

Higurashi no Naku Koro Rei - Super Scription of Data

I dunno why but this song reminds me a bit of Tekken II.

 

Cowboy Bebop - TANK!

THE best opening theme, no, the best anime song of all time.

 

Cowboy Bebop - The Real Folk Blues

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nftxDrStny8

Also greatest anime ending theme ever. Also, wonderful fan cover -

 

Cowboy Bebop - See You Space Cowboy

An arrangement of The Real Folk Blues. Truly beautiful.

 

Outlaw Star - Opening Theme

The opening theme song of the anime that inspired Cowboy Bebop. Cheesy 90s anime music FTW!

 

Outlaw Start - Hiru no Tsuki/Melfina's Lullaby

Man, every time I hear Hiru no Tsuki, my eyes just get tearful. Outlaw Star was like the first Toonami show I had seen so this song has a bit of an impact on me.

 

Street Fighter II Victory - Hadoken

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4j9-Bfm1Tvo

Never seen the anime but this song is pretty amazing. Never heard a theme for an attack before but hey, it is pretty emotional.

 

Elfen Lied - Lilium

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RaV6eDvgiG4

Quite possibly the saddest anime theme ever. One of the very few opening themes I can respect because it's not annoying J-Pop/rock crap.

 

- A piano/violin duet by two members of the Eminence Orchestra playing the above song.

 

Laputa: The Castle In The Sky - Carrying You

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fmQRIoeE35o&feature=related

Need to see this movie but anyway, beautiful song.

 

Inuyasha - Dearest (Orchestra)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PX5yM40etFQ

 

I hate Inuyasha but dammit it had some beautiful music man.
