Anime Music Treasures That Will Make Your Heart Pound Stronger
There are many anime music treasures. One of the best parts of a good anime series or movie is the soundtrack. So, I collected the some of the most beautiful anime songs I know and love. I think music is an amazing and entertaining way of getting to know another culture or certain parts of it. And learning more about the musicians who created the amazing sounds for the top anime shows out there is certainly one of the best ways to do so. In case you want to learn more and listen to some amazing Asian musicians then check out our post on that too.
I was always a big fan of not just the anime shows but also the anime music. They are always made by beloved musicians to make sure of the show’s ultimate success. These artists really know how to reach your soul. These are my favorite anime songs that became my favorites from the first time I heard them. These songs make me joyful, give me comfort, and make my heart pound faster and stronger when I hear them. I hope they will do the same for you!
Howl’s moving castle was my first anime love and anime music love. 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. And 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
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
Maybe it’s weird but this song doesn’t make me sad. It makes me melancholic, emotional. Brings back memories not necessarily bad ones but deeply 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. 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. I love all of her songs. And 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.
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. 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.
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.
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!
