My love for Anime songs goes side by side with my love for Animes. Sometimes, the songs are too good for a mediocre anime. Other times, its the opposite. I don’t want to call it rare, but yeah, there are few that both were amazing. Its really the worst if it’s the opposite. Why am I talking about this? Well, I wanted to share to you a list of songs that I discovered through watching animes then I became a huge fan of the artists. The list is not that long, so stick around and also check them out. They all deserve all the LOVE. <3 <3
- Change the world – V6
Well, this is the first in the list cuz this song was my entry to everything. The moment I heard this song playing on the TV, I was hypnotized by it. I didn’t even freakin’ understand a single word and yet I stood there, feeling the song. The way the boy idol group sang the song resonated with me. This became my foundation with my love with idols. Not only for the j-idols but also for the k-idols too.
2. RE:I AM – Aimer
I was marathoning the Gundam Unicorn Movies when out of nowhere I stumbled on this song. If I remember it correctly it was during the later half of the 6th movie when this song was played. I was literally blown away by the feels on the music, it added alot of emotion to the scenes. I even shed some tears, it was that moving. Since then, I became a fan of Aimer. I was really happy after I realized that she also did the ED for the 7th movie, StarRingChild, but it didn’t have the same effect on me compared to RE:I AM.
3. Thousand enemies – LiSA
Compared to other people, I wasn’t moved much with the opening or with Lia’s song (…I am sorry). Her songs are not my jam. But I was more moved with songs played in the band. Compared to the other entries on this list, I didn’t become a fan of the song immediately. It was around the time I listen to the complete Angel Beats OST when I discovered this song. LiSA’s vocals was really refreshing. It not really unique but there was something in her voice that keeps me on listening to her. Fast forward to now, I am now a huge fan of LiSA, and I always look forward to her anisong releases.
4. orange – 7!!
I think I’m not the only one who became a fan of 7!! after they released this song, orange. I mean, bruh, this song brings feels to a point you could cry a bucket of tears even just by listening to it. I especially love the acoustic version of this song cuz its much more raw.
5. Kimi no Nawa OST – Radwimps
This is not shocking bruh.
The whole OST is so amazing. At first I didn’t know that RADWIMPS were the one who did the OST for the movie, I think it was around the time when I bought the OST when I knew. Damn, they are so amazing. Since then, I couldn’t stop listen to their songs.
6. Sugar Song to Bitter Step – Unison Square Garden
One of my all time favorite anisongs of the recent years.
Usually, only the OP songs of the anime tend to get recognize but this song definitely changed the game. The OP of Kekkai Sensen was really good, but the ED, Sugar Song to Bitter Step, is so so good. After hearing this song, I immediately researched more about the band and listen to their songs. They are now one of my favorite bands in Japan.
7. only my railgun – fripSide
This anime is one of my all time favorites. One of the reasons why this became my favorite is the OST, specifically, the OP songs through out the series. The first OP left a big impression to me with its eargasms worthy music. Not only this song, but every anisong they released were eargasms worthy. Their music made me love the electric pop sound more.
8. Yasashisa no Riyuu – Choucho
This song is one of my most repeated songs on my music player. It always gives me good and positive vibes, which I usually need in my daily life. Through this song, I was able to discover Choucho and her amazing voice. Her voice is soothing in my ears. Every song she released is definitely an OK to me no matter what type of genre that song belongs to. Its all because of her voice. She’s amazing.
9. irony – ClariS
When I first heard this song, I immediately liked it. The voices of the artists and their harmony is quite unique at that time. Their voices were quite mature but at the same time, it was full of youthfulness. I didn’t know that the name of the artists was ClariS, I just thought it was another OP song that was sang by the Voice actresses of the anime. But I was so wrong.
I didn’t researched them immediately, it took me awhile before I checked them out. I think it was after I heard their voices a couple of times in OP’s and ED’s of different animes, when I decided to heavily researched about them and become a certified fan. Never regret it.
10. Kokoro no Tamago – Buono!
Ah, yes. This song. Of course.
Through this amazing song, I became a fan of Buono. This song is so catchy, especially the opening verse. That part got stuck on my mind for a long time. Another thing, Buono didn’t just do the infamous first OP of the series, but also some several amazing ED’s and OP’s through out the franchise. This song was my gateway to the world of Hello! Project. To a world until now I couldn’t escape from, and I’m very thankful for that. I am very thankful I discovered this anime. Even though the idol group is now gone, Kokoro no Tamago and Buono will always have a special place in my heart.
Uuuwwwaaaaaa…most of the songs above a god-tier amazing anisongs for me. I do hope you guys would check them out, especially the artists.
I also wanted to point out that making a top 10 list is hard. LOL. Maybe next time I might minimize the number, either 7 or 9…who knows.
Anyway, thats it for now!
Thanks for reading!!
