This subreddit is for lovers of Japanese music and any music from anime.
Feel free to post openings, endings, vocal covers, instrumental covers, band covers, OST music, character songs, AMVs (with anime music). It can be an extremely popular song or a hidden gem in an anime. Whatever it is, we'd love to hear it!
If you are requesting suggestions for songs because you don't know where to start, you should post in the sticky thread. Self posts are for discussions and song identification.
Songs of the Week (November 10 - November 17)
Tank - Cowboy Bebop - Yoko Kanno and the Seatbelts If you're here, you probably know this song. An extremely catchy jazz song, Tank single-handedly revolutionized anime music in Japan and remains in everyone's music players for not only the catchiness, but also the nostalgia. Bang.
Fallen - Psycho Pass 2 - EGOIST. EGOIST returns after a year hiatus, performing another hypefilled, electricizing song perfect for the dark setting of Psycho Pass.
My Soul, Your Beats - Angel Beats - LIA. A new classic in anime music, it's extremely difficult to find an anime watcher who doesn't get chills with this song. The consistent use of piano, a steady bass drum, and the importance of the song to Angel Beats makes it difficult not to experience frisson.
