Best Anime Music: Anime Opening Themes!

Best Anime Music: Anime Opening Themes!

Hey Legendary Looters, time to check out some more of my favourite music in Anime history this time it’s Iconic Japanese Themes!. These are all my opinion, but I am open to hearing new music that I may have missed.  The only rules I’m following is 1 franchise per list and no song from a previous list can be used. So in no particular order, here’s my list!.

Just as a reminder, this isn’t my top 5, its just 5 (mostly) random songs picked from my top 100 or so.

Air Gear – Chain

This is one of those anime I wish was longer, it would also make a great game. It most likely has a game that wasn’t released outside of Japan, but I try not to look things like that up because it hurts my soul. This opening theme really stuck with me after the anime finished, really encapsulated the series. I highly recommend checking it out if you haven’t seen it.

Outlaw Star – Through the Night

I loved this theme when I was a kid, still do. Outlaw Star was shown alongside Cowboy Bebop in England, so for this to stand out next to that, you know it has to be good. I might be a little biased on this one since it is such a memorable part of my childhood, but all opinion based lists are biased. The guitar solo is really cool, and it was probably one of the first japanese songs I learned to sing despite not knowing japanese at the time.

Deadman Wonderland – One Reason

This was a really cool anime with an interesting concept, I wish it had continued but it is what it is. I was going to have this in the Iconic English Themes list but it wasn’t one of the random ones I chose, so I intentionally put it on this list because it is awesome. I haven’t heard anything else this band has done but I think it might be worth looking into, they have a unique sort of feel to them.

One Outs – Bury

One Outs is a really cool anime that didn’t get as much attention as it deserved and I again recommend watching it if you haven’t. At a first glance it’s about baseball but it’s more about the gambles and startegies relating to the human mind, the baseball is just a medium to display that. I had this song on my main playlist for so long, they’re a cool band with another great song called Home that is worth listening to as well.

BECK: Mongolian Chop Squad – Hit in the USA

This is one of those anime I’ve never met anyone else who has seen it. It’s about becoming a musician, so unsuprisingly it has some really good music. It also has a relatively realistic depiction of what it is like trying to become well known if you have talent, except working toward the end they’re a lot luckier than most, but the last episodes are really engaging and for the last tiem this list, I recommend watching it if you haven’t.

I hope you liked my list! Next time we’ll be looking at Anime Ending Themes!
