Anime Opening/Ending Themes


Had a friendly discussion last night about our favorite anime theme music, figured I’d share some of my favorites. J-Pop in general and anime theme music in particular have a kind of energy that you just don’t get from Western music. I think that generally I tend to favor those that openings for series that I had a chance to watch on TV (instead of via streaming/online channels), since back in those days I had to sit through the openings! (So most of these are rather old!)

Kimi Ga Suki da to Sakebitai from Slam Dunk by Baad:

Hohoemi no Bakudan from Yu Yu Hakusho by Matsuko Mawatari:

1/3 no Junjou na Kanjou from Rurouni Kenshin by Siam Shade:

(RK in particular had a lot of tracks I liked, but let’s limit it to one per series)

Chala Head Chala from Dragonball Z by Hironobu Kageyama:

We Are! from One Piece by Hiroshi Kitadani:

That’s all for now! Here’s a spotify playlist if you’re into that sort of thing.
