1| Howl’s Moving Castle OST – by Joe Hisaishi

Howl’s moving castle was my first anime love and anime music love. Definitely my favorite anime OST  and one of my favorite animated movies. Basically, all Hayao Miyazaki animes are perfect and their soundtrack too… but this one has a special place in my heart. Both the anime and the music is so hopeful and positive.

I think we need a lot of these things in our lives.  Howl’s Moving Castle is one of the few anime shows that you find on most of the top anime lists, and for a good reason. Everything is perfect about this classic animated movie.

In case you love beautiful animated movies ( Who isn’t? Right?) then you may find something to fell in love on our best animated movies list.

2| Your Name OST – (Kataware Doki) by Radwimps

Your Name quickly became one of the anime icons and stole millions of hearts easily all over the world in just a couple of weeks. Not just the music but one of the most beautiful scenes I’ve seen in anime.

First, the manga and then the anime conquered the world. Its soundtrack is emotional and pleasing.

It serves a couple of peaceful and beautiful moments for sure. This beautiful and romantic anime quickly became everyone’s favorite and flew on top of many if not all top anime lists.

3| Naruto OST –  Sadness and Sorrow by Toshiro Masuda

Naruto’s Sadness and Sorrow is not just one of the best anime songs ever made but also one of the most beloved sad anime songs out there. Maybe it’s weird but this song doesn’t make me sad. It makes me melancholic, emotional.

Christmas is a perfect time to reflect on the past, remember and commit to doing better, to be better in the future. To ourselves and to others as well.

Naruto is a long time favorite in the anime lovers circles. It’s packed with action, adventure, and emotions no wonder how it’s still one of the best anime shows ever made.

4| Fullmetal Alchemist OST – Bratja by Beda & Ooshima Michiru

Fullmetal Alchemist is one of the best shows ever created and it also has one of the most amazing and popular anime openings as well. The characters, the storyline, its sense of humor, and the music fits perfectly to every moment. Even the highly emotional ones.

Doesn’t matter if you know the anime or not these songs will make you smile. But seriously, watch the show if you haven’t already. This anime is on our Best Anime Series List too!

Fullmetal Alchemist is definitely one of the top anime series ever that can make you drop everything and binge-watch the whole show in one sitting.

5| 5 Centimeters Per Second OST – Hontou no Oto by Kokia

Kokia is a real-life Japanese siren. She has many anime theme songs under her name and she’s definitely my favorite anime singer of all time. I love all of her songs.

Of course, she was chosen to do the music for 5 centimeters per second. This anime made millions cry but it also showed us what should real relationships be like.

This and any other Kokia song is a perfect choice for calm, peaceful nights. If you want to watch a good anime that’s able to break your heart then don’t look further.

6| Laputa Castle In The Sky OST – by Joe Hisaishi

Another perfect OST from Ghibli studio and the fantastic Joe Hisaishi. You probably have seen this anime on many Top Anime Lists and for a good reason. And its music is just as joyful and comforting as the anime itself.

Buy it on Amazon.

7| Death Parade OST – Moonlit Night by Hayashi Yuki

One of the most beautiful songs I’ve ever heard. Even its title is gorgeous. It’s a little melancholic but peaceful and also a romantic song.

It may make you a little sad if you’re in a bad mood but it can also make you find love again even if your heart was broken before.

8| Guilty Crown OST – Planetes by Egoist

Peaceful and comforting. It’s a charming, sad anime music treasure. The beautiful piano solo perfectly blends with the singers’ voices. Women will likely love this song and maybe even the more sensitive males of your family too.

Buy it on Amazon.

9| Lovely Complex OST – Risa by Hironosuke Satou

This song and the show as well is a little more upbeat and fun. The song is jazzy and joyful just like the character Risa. It’s about two weird kids a girl who is “too tall” and a boy who is “too short” and their awesome friendship.

The music perfectly reflects the mood of the show. It’s a perfect fit if you want to listen to something joyful & fun. 

Buy it on Amazon.

10| K-ON! OST – Girls in Wonderland by Shouko Ohmori

This one is a kick-ass rock&roll anime song. Just like the anime. IF you’re looking for something more rock feel-music you should check out K-On! because they know how to rock your world.

Its songs are upbeat, fun but they take the rock&roll part pretty seriously too. Their songs are perfect to blast out during the days when you want to hear some heart pounding sounds!
