2channel's Top 20 Anime Songs

I wonder if you've seen this yet. They list their Top 20 by voting and by time period (Red - 1980s, Blue - 1990s, Green - 2000s).

How many do you know?

Turn A Gundam 2nd ending "Tsuki no Mayu"

One of my favorite songs ever.

Oh wow, seeing the Infinite Ryvius OP ranked so highly, is cool. One of my favorites

Number 1 for 90s was predictable, but I didnt see the #1 for 2000s coming at all heh.

Wow....like...do people not know what good music is?

Or do they only care about the anime? Because after watching that...like only 5 songs were good. The rest weren't as good....

It's probably the nostalgia. I mean...I find the Digimon OP to be average, but it brings back soooo many memories. I loved it when I heard it again.

Wow, that's quite an achievement...
...less than 5 good songs out of 60.

And I can't believe the Cowboy Bebop OP and the Higurashi OP weren't in there, that's seriously fucked up.

That was quite a trip down memory lane. I must be an old fart if I recall the heady days when episodes of Cowboy Bebop were being distributed on VHS fansubs, anime clubs gathered to binge watch Card Captor Sakura and Evangelion defined anime :P

I think it's likely that most of the voters of the poll are in their late 20s and prefer to watch Gundam or mecha.

But #1 for 2000s was a pleasant surprise!

Yeah... most songs are crap. I only liked about 11 songs. For some reason the Gundam ones being the best, regardless of age o_o. But seriously wtf @ the top 3 for 80's and 90's.

Reeeally not the greatest selection of songs. I can't believe "God Knows" was so low on that list, especially considering what beat it. I mean... wow. I'm glad to see "Tori no Uta" almost got first though.

Yeah... I'd say the majority of the voters had a mecha bias, and/or simply voted the OP/ED for their favorite anime without much regard to the song itself. There were a lot of songs that I expected to be on there, like the Cowboy Bebop OP. Much different tastes I guess. Still a dismal selection...

And this is the first time I've heard the Japanese Digimon OP. Catchy.

Considering my general expectations of 2ch-er's tastes, I don't think they've done too badly here. A few really good songs on this list, and quite a few nostalgia-sparkers. Recognized almost all of the 00s, a few of the 90s, but was completely lost with the 80s. Maison Ikkoku OP was one of the very few I recognized from there.

I'd forgotten how good music from RahXephon was. Didn't much like the anime, but there's no denying it had a killer soundtrack.

the higher than numbers go the worse the songs get on the whole. #3 gundam seed? thats just BS.

other than digimon, #2 spots were seemed very accurate.

but number 1 spot? the original gundam song? eh, fanboys.
next evangelion, well it should have been expected.
and lastly... Aquarion??? R U SHUR.


something TELLS me suiseiseki has been spamming fake votes again.

I agree. God knows at #20... the Live version of this song blows the recorded one away. Although there are some catchy songs from the past with all that trumpet blowing.... lmfao

And wow, as I'm watching this, there's a TON of gundam songs..!!

edit:

Ok well, I just finished the video, and I gotta say, the AIR OP definitely beats the shit out of the #1 song. I like NGE, but I'm just not a fan of their songs. There are indeed other songs that I would have liked to see in there, but I guess people have quite different tastes....

WTF@ #1 songs. o.O
Okay, so EVA and Gundam is understandable, considering EVA did make tsunami-class waves back when it was airing. Gundam is, well, Gundam. But Aquarion?
And the RM songs. I like RM, but I don't think the OP songs are that good. If I was to vote a song for RM, I'd cast it to RMT ED, Hikari no Rasenritsu. =.=
At least the Nanoha faction have enough ears to know that Innocent Starter is better than Eternal Blaze.

At least Tori no Uta almost clinched top spot. And Give a Reason up there makes me yay~

If you have an hour to spare, they have Top 200 in here. You'd probably find this ranking a bit less WTF. Yes, Higurashi is in there along with (I didn't count) at least 30 mecha songs. It totally explains why I got so sick of mecha I avoid them like the plague.

Top 200-100: http://www.nicovideo.jp/video/player/sm352330
Top 100 - 1: http://www.nicovideo.jp/video/player/sm342212

But yes, I'm quite surprised at how current anime fared.

Oh My God I know all these 80's and 90's songs and frequently listen to them (Even moreso recentely which is kind of freaky, but then I remember my clairvoyancy and thought channeling ability). I can help a hell of a lot with these by the way (All of these are personal opinion by the way and the parts about my respect for Japanese music are strictly from my point of view only):

1980's:
Spoiler:



1990's:
Spoiler:

2000's:

Spoiler:


So my taste is surprisingly similar to 2channels up until the 21st century where its hit or miss. I've got to wonder what the hell they are thinking though with the awful song in spot #1 for the 2000s. Despite this they are far more in sync with me than out of it and I've gained a little bit of respect for 2channel that I wouldn't normally have. I just have to still question there tastes for the 21st century is all. The only songs I really liked on the 2000 list where Over!, Innocent Starter, The Rozen Maiden one's and the Rahxephon ones.

As for peoples dislike of the ones that aren't Kyoto Animation ones or aren't from 2000, Come On People, the 80's and 90's are entirely different eras altogether. Don't blame the era if you don't like the song. Learn a bit about the 80's and 90's, then maybe learn the names of the songs and then come back and describe exactly what is wrong with them. I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess that the 5 "good" (as if there is some universal qualifier for good beyond ones opinion) songs people keep mentioning are God Knows, Hare Hare Yukai, Tori No Uta, Shooting Star and Innocent Starter, which I think are alright songs.

Either way I'm anticipitating a fair bit of whining regarding the Haruhi songs low placing and the fact that the Air theme didn't place in #1 for 2000's and the Haruhi songs in the #2 and #3 slots (Pro KyoAni Bias in a bit of the commentary maybe?). Fair enough as those songs are popular with a lot of people, but what do people have to say about the 80's and 90's rankings. What do they think could have been done better, because people mostly seem upset by the fact that those decades are dominated by Mecha anime songs (I detect an Anti-Mecha Bias almost, getting upset because one thinks Mecha songs can't be liked a fair number of people. The bias thing can work both ways after all). I'm not saying anybody should do a detailed opinion piece like I have, but does nobody care to chime in on exactly why they felt there were only 5-10 good songs (maybe name them) on the list or on what should have been there (from your favourites). It sure beats just beating on 2channel's list (I still can't believe I'm siding with 2channel) without any apparent justification or opinion to back it up. Nobody's going to shoot anybody down for stating why they didn't like the list (It's bound to happen that people will have different tastes).

Also since I'm a masochist I'm going to come back and do a piece on all 200 of the Top 200 songs tomorrow if I can.
Top 100-1
Spoiler:


So that's that. If anyone want's to do a spot on the 200-101 songs, be my guest. Overall the screwiest parts come in the ending where there are songs that I feel don't even belong on the chart at all. Specifically that Sousei No Aquarion song. It's tricky to order these things around, but I'd definetely have Tori No Uta and Butterfly in the 200-101 parts and if necessary the #05 one as well. The Gundam Seed One and the Sousei No Aquarion one however shouldn't even be listed. Personally out of the Top 10 the only one I think that is deserving of the Top Slot is Platinum from CCS (Even the Rahxephon one doesn't beat it, maybe if it were Hemisphere they could duel, but with Tune The Rainbow it's Platinum. No Contest). I wouldn't dispute it as again these things are tricky and I have like almost 20 songs I could easily put in to my #01 slot at any given time depending on my current mood.

This man is passionate about his anime music. And Now, To Bed.

To the previous poser: impressive listing of the songs there.

As for #15 from the 1980s, it's the last OP to Maison Ikkoku, one of my favorite series from the era.
