10 Rockin' Anime Theme Songs From Q3 2015

Ten Rockin' Anime Theme Songs From Summer 2015

Every season brings us a massive new amount of anime theme songs. Here are 10 of the best from Q3 2015.


Anime: The Heroic Legend of Arslan (Arslan Senki) Song: "One Light" Artist: Kalafina Why I Love It: The ethereal voices of these two three singers and their use of counter-melodies makes this into a powerful pop ballad.


Anime: Durarara!! Song: "Day You Laugh" Artist: Toshiyuki Tononaga Why I Love It: There are two things I really like about this Durarara opening. The first is the powerful, emotion-filled male vocals. The second is how every opening has clips of past episodes that are relevant to the episode you are watching -- something more than a little helpful when the number of main characters is now in the dozens.


Anime: Eagle Talon DO (Himitsukessha Taka no Tsume DO) Song: "WONDER ALONE" Artist: Glim Spanky Why I Love It: A decade here in Japan and I never knew there was such a thing as Japanese country music. I'm ok with this. (I'm also in love with the gravelly voice of the female singer.)


Anime: Fairy Tail Song: "NEVER-END TALE" Artist: Tatsuyuki Kobayashi and Konomi Suziki Why I Love It: I'm a sucker for pretty much any J-rock theme song that is a duet between male and female singers.


Anime: Gatchaman Crowds Song: "Insight" Artist: WHITE ASH Why I Love It: This is another strong J-rock track. But the coolest thing about this opening is the stop motion animation of the characters using life-size cardboard cut-outs in real world locations.


Anime: Gangsta. Song: "Renegade" Artist: STEREO DIVE FOUNDATION Why I Love It: One half J-rock with the male vocals, one part techno. What's not to like?


Anime: GATE Song: "GATE: Sore Wa Akatsuki No You Ni" Artist: Kishida Kyoudan & The Akeboshi Rockets Why I Love It: This song's got a good, steady build-up to a strong chorus. And the way the visuals flash between the fantasy world and our real one is a nice touch.


Anime: God Eater Song: "Feed A" Artist: OLDCODEX Why I Love It: Here's the funny thing about this. I don't particularly like the verses but the chorus is so good I sometimes set this one to repeat for hours.


Anime: Overlord Song: "L.L.L." Artist: MYTH & ROID Why I Love It: This one not only has beautiful art and a good melody but also is a song plainly displaying the inner (yandere) feelings of Albedo. So the song is character building as much as anything else.


Anime: Shimoneta Song: "Inner Urge" Artist: Sumire Uesaka Why I Love It: Not gonna lie, I don't particularly like this song (though I don't really hate it either). However, no anime ending song has ever taught me how to make a sex toy before -- not to mention doing so at Japan's most infamous pool. So for that alone, I figure it deserves to be on this list.

    Complete fail.

    Gangstas is just an all round ead anime. Shame its only here for 12 eps.

    Is it just me, or is that Revy from Black Lagoon as the title image from the Black Lagoon intro theme

    Prison School's 'Ai no Prison' deserves a listen too.
    Darn catchy, and sums up the silliness of the show quite well.
