For any list of anime singers should include Megumi Hayashibara (Slayer's Lina Inverse, Rei Ayanami ETC.) as one of the best, and she has performed quite a few of the opening and closing songs to anime shows.

Another favorite is Junko Iwao (key the metal idol, Perfect Blue) another very good singer that has several albums out (most are not anime related music but still quite good).

I don't know if she did any other tracks for other shows... but I would cast a vote for Fumiko Orikasa... granted I've only heard one of her tracks and it was the ED for Tsukihime.... but whatever....... it was great!

Btw.. does anyone know if she was the voice of Pacifica Casull on Scrapped Princess? cuz... the name sounds familiar...... thanks!

Yes she did. Orikasa Fumiko (or by otaku nickname: Oririn and/or Fumifumi) is a very talented seiyuu, known by Japanese otakus as "the seiyuu with multi-talented voices."

Besides played the role of Ciel in "Shingetsutan Tsukihime," she is also famous for:

Pacifica Casull - "Scrapped Princess"
Shiina Hikaru - "Figure 17"
Chise - "Saishuuheiki Kanojo (saikano)"
Fuyutsuki Azusa - "GTO"
Sherry - "Kiniro no Gashbell"
Hikari - "Haibane Renmei"
Fujisawa Yayoi - "Uchuu no Stellvia"
Celes Victoria - "Hellsing"
Meia Gisborne - "Vandread"
Kikuhara Misuzu - "Stratos 4"
Fujiwara Chiyoko - "Millennium Actress"
Komatsu Chiaki - "Nie_7"

and numerous others....

I can't believe nobody has said it already, but Reba West may be the all time greatest anime singer with her stunning rendition of Lynn Minmei's song "My Time to be a Star" in the english version of Robotech.

Stage lights flashing,
The feeling's smashing.
My heart and soul belong to you.
And I'm here now, singing.
All bells are ringing.
My dream has finally come true.

Stage fright, go away,
This is my big day.
This is my time to be a star!
And the thrill that I feel
Is really unreal.
I can't believe I've come this far!
This is my time to be a star!

Cool

Thanks for the info!
I never knew who sung the Doraemon song but now I know
It has such a deep impact on me from young.

But nowadays still Maaya Sakamoto because she always does Yoko Kanno's works. And Yoko Kanno rocks.

Who is the singer who did ningyohime for Chobits?

By "legendary," I mean the two people that I have mentioned were singing anime/tokusatsu OP songs from the late 1960s to today.
Just to mention a few of Horie Mitsuko and Mizuki Ichiro's profiles (at least that I know from the top of my head) are:

Horie Mitsuko http://www.micchi.net/
A. Won the "National Children's Singing Contest Show" in 1961 (I take it something comparable in the US would be "American Idol")
B. Debuted in 1969 by singing the OP to the anime "Kurenai Sanshiro"
C. Some of her OP anime/tokusatsu songs works include:
"Hakushon Daimaoh," "Mahou no Makochan," "Suki! Suki! Majosensei," "Sazae-san," "Susume~ Go-ranger!" "Magne Robo Gakin," "Candy Candy," "Chodenji Machine Voltes V" "Hananoko RunRun," "Dr. Slump Arare-chan," "Doraemon," and more....totaling over 900 OP songs for anime, tokusatsu, movies, and special programs.
D. Known in Japan as the "godmother of shoujo anime songs."
E. Her most recent work is a collaboration project with the Angel Troupe, doing a special OP in the "mahou shoujo episode" in "Galaxy Angel 3rd Season."

Mizuki Ichiro http://www.mizuki-spirits.com/index.htm
A. Debuted in 1968 from Nippon Columbia Records as a children's song skit (something like your "Sesame Street")
B. Some of his OP anime/tokusatsu song works include:
"Mazinger Z," "Great Mazinger," "Choudenji Robo Combattler V," "Babel 2sei," "Captain Harlock," "Kamen Rider/Masked Rider," "Lupin 3rd," etc. totaling over 1000 songs in his career, and counting
C. The only person in Japanese musical history to be awarded the prestigious annual Columbia Music Golden Disk Award for 10 times
D. Made music legend in 1999 on a special 24-hour TV show in which he sang all of his 1000+ OP anime/tokusatsu songs in 24 hours. Which also happened to receive one of the highest viewer ratings in Japanese TV history.
E. Known in Japan as the "godfather of shounen anime songs."
F. His most recent work is creating a band called JAM Project along with Matsumoto Rika, Kageyama Hironobu, Endo Masaaki, and Sakamoto Eizou (whom all are great anime singers as well) and doing the OP theme to "Soultaker"

In the realms of how prolific, how long they have been in the anime industry, and how they have made an impact to the anime/tokusatsu music industry, these two singers are indeed, legendary.

The singers that you have asked me about, and the other singers that are listed on this thread are all indeed very great singers. But in a sense, their career as an anime singer would not exist without the groundwork laid upon by Horie Mitsuko and Mizuki Ichiro. All anime singers in Japan pay dear respects to these two.

To anime (and perhaps even non-anime) singers, these two ARE gods. And to anime otakus in Japan, these two are what we have known to grow up with - in almost every anime that we have seen as a child (and even children today watch current children's anime show with these two still singing the OP songs to, as well!).

An analogous comparison would be comparing, oh...let's say.... "Britney Spears" to "Diana Ross." or "Blink 182" to "Deep Purple." (bad pun, I understand. I don't know too many English singers....)

So, I stand firm on my selection of anime singers: Horie Mitsuko and Mizuki Ichiro hands down.

XD !!
here's a list of kick ass game/anime artists that I think deserve some recognition:
Kotoko
佐藤裕美 (Tomo)
下川みくに Mikuni Shimokawa
堀江由衣 Horie Yui <--

for doujin .. I'm rarely listen to them ...
but Apple Project and especially SOUND HORIZON !! are some of the best~ mew
http://sound-horizon.net/

there are many other artist that does great work in this field, some does more, some does less ... I'm sure all the fans apprieciate their effort reguardless their talent ^_^ since it's the heart that matters, right? ^_-

PS: 桃井はるこ Momoi .... should be shot .. XD!! (am I the only one here cant stand her voice? lol) nearly everyone I know like her, good cosplay, but incredibly annoying voice (and I acually love songs like Princess Bride)..... LOL IMHO she's evil, she's a witch !!!! Yui >>> Momoi
