I will say, Attack On Titan absolutely smash theme tunes

they're decent, but they don't stand up to anime theme tunes from the 90s in comparison - this is the one thing recent series needs to improve, there hasn't been a real catchy theme tune since Slayers NEXT or maybe Neon Genesis Evangelion, the music composers of the anime industry need to up their game if they want to be remembered 15/20 years down the line D:



i'm not sure if i've posted this one but it's also one of my favourites c:

Ah, the thing with the 90's is that they had a very dance background that gave them that incredible "Eurovision cheese" feel to them!

A lot of my favourite music from anime these days doesn't actually come from the themes but the music in the actual episodes.

ah i know what you mean, like the Slayers NEXT theme is my absolute favourite but when i listen to it i do get a cheesy vibe from it - i appreciate that however, you can tell that the producers have taken their job seriously in producing a theme tune that sticks in your head as people are still enjoying it 20+ years after it was released, but you're right about music that's in the actual episodes, Gravitation (for example) has a playlist that is really quite enjoyable even if it only appears in maybe 2 or 3 episodes :3 i'm quite passionate about 90s anime, hence my rambling response so my apologies for making you read this much!

Ah, ramble as much as you need to!

My favourite is still "Fairy Tail main theme", purely because of how Yasuharu Takanashi has managed to implement it so effortlessly in so many different ways to suit the theme of an episode, or part of an episode. If you have never cried whilst watching this show, partly for the music, you have no heart  😅

But yeah, Yasuharu Takanashi did most of the in episode music for Fairy Tail and most of it is spectacular. Would put it up there with my all time OST's.

The Main Theme


Then they slow it down and completely change it, usually when nothing is going right and they're on the verge of defeat. Cue inspirational monologue about love and friendship that brings tears to the eyes.


And to top it off, they made it sadder

I find myself doing that too when I know how the words sound anyway, or I watch the opening or ending enough times to commit it to memory. Other times I just try and don't get the sound right but keep doing it anyway. lol When you get into the spirit of the song you can't help it, and nothin's wrong with that. :D
