Ten Catchy Anime Theme Songs From Summer 2016

Ten Catchy Anime Theme Songs from Winter 2016

As the summer 2016 season comes to a close, let's look at some of the best anime theme songs it had to offer.

Anime: Showa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu Song: "Usurashi Shinjuu" Artist: Megumi Hayashibara Why I Love It: This lounge singer-style jazz song is so unlike the vast majority of anime themes out there, I can't help but love it.

Anime: Haruchika — Haruta & Chika Song: "Niji wo Ametara" Artist: fhána Why I Love It: Upbeat songs with a mixture of male and female vocals are the best.

Anime: Dimension W Song: "Genesis" Artist: STEREO DRIVE FOUNDATION Why I Love It: When even the main character of the anime can't help but dance to this song, what chance do I have.

Anime: Fairy Tail (2014) Song: "Ashita wo Narase" Artist: Shishido Kavka Why I Love It: Hard rock guitars and women singing in perfect harmony. 'Nuff said.

Anime: Detective Conan Song: "Hane" Artist: Inaba Koshi Why I Love It: This song makes Detective Conan seem way more epic than the formulaic mystery it actually is.

Anime: Active Raid Song: "Golden Life" Artist: AKINO with bless4 Why I Love It: I've come to the realisation that I'm going to like every AKINO song I come across. Her belting soprano voice gets me every time.

Anime: Durarara!!x2 Ketsu Song: "Steppin' out" Artist: FLOW Why I Love It: Not only is the song great, but the opening introduces all the important characters by name as well. Then it gives you a brief recap mid-song that reminds you of important moments from previous episodes that are vital to what you're about to watch.

Anime: Erased Song: "Re:Re" Artist: ASIAN KUNG-FU GENERATION Why I Love It: The tone of the song manages to capture both the everyday life nature of the show as well as the looming threat lying just beneath the surface.

Anime: Bubuki Buranki Song: "ANGER/ANGER" Artist: MYTH & ROID Why I Love It: Good use of female vocals, a hard guitar and autotune.

Anime: Ajin Song: "HOW CLOSE YOU ARE" Artist: Miyano Mamoru Why I Love It: This is a rather laid-back ballad offset with images of Ajin dying hauntingly in a beautiful art style.


    My vote goes to Erased's opening. I don't think there was a single episode where I skipped it.

      I love how in Episode 11, Satoru is actually missing from the opening

    so what is the anime from the gif, and is it worth watching? (that's what brought me here)

      That looks like Dimension W. Not sure if it's worth it though, as I haven't gotten to see it yet. Still catching up on my anime back catalogue. lol

    Dimension w opening ...... I cringe its crap audibly
    Nothing like the opening for Gangster last season.
    But yeah my votes go to both the opening and closing of Erased
    Really liked the subtle changes to EP. 11 opening
