My Playlist of Japanese Songs + Anime

Share with your Friends!

In this article I want to present my list of favorite Japanese songs. Most are songs that probably passed in some anime or game. I want to talk about all the songs, artistic and share a full ranking that helps you find what to hear.

When it comes to songs I’m kind of different from most people, it’s usually instrumental touches, rhythms and soundtracks that catches my eye on a song and not the singer’s lyrics or voice. One of the main reasons for liking Japanese music so much, where they exaggerate in instrumentals different from repetitive everyday life.

Take any popular Brazilian or international music, you will always have the same instruments and same rhythms. Japanese songs are far from the traditional and use large mixes of rhythms and even classical music instruments.

My Playlist of Japanese Songs + anime

My favorite Japanese songs

I always find a song and listen to it about 1, 000 times until I get sick. There are songs I can’t get sick and are forever marked as the closures and openings of the 2011 Hunter x Hunter anime, all of which are epic, especially those of Yuzu.

HitoriGoto and Irony from Claris are also in my Playlist for a long time. Da Sayuri listened thousands of times Heikousen and Sore wa Chiisana Hikari no Youna. The closure of Shigatsu Wa Kimi in Use, Orange 7!! it’s another one who creeps.

The music I’ve been listening to most lately is Lisa’s Unlasting, closure of Sword Art Online Alicization 2. Previously I also listened enough Niji in Kanatani and also of the same anime.

2 other very popular songs I love and have always found among the most sung karaoke are Zankoku na Tenshi in evangelion teeze and Sekai wa koi ni ochiteiru from Ao Haru Ride.

In 2018 during my trip to Japan I met two songs I constantly listen to today. It is ai no katachi [アイノカタチ] by MISIA and also the traditional music of Okinawa Shima Uta [島唄] by the voice of Rimi Natsukawa.

Before these songs I love most of the SONGS and TRACKS OST composed by Hiroyuki Sawano, mainly those sung by Mika Kobayashi and Mizuki, mainly those of the animeal x.zero and the game Xenoblade X.

Goose House is another band i liked a lot, does several Covers and has perfect original songs like Oto no Naru Houe de Silver Spoon and Hikaru Nara from Shigatsu wa Kimi in The Use.

Japanese songs from my Playlist

Of course there are many other Japanese songs that are or have been in my playlist for some time and that marked me somehow. I’ll list below some songs that have been left out and i recommend listening strongly.

Remembering that they are not in order of favorites or anything, I just put the ones I found in the apps I use, or the ones that came in my head. There may be more songs I haven’t remembered T.T — Sad…
