Top 5 Iconic Anime Songs Are More Famous Than Its Anime



Iconic Anime Songs  : These songs have gotten so popular that they’ve attracted their own legion of followers, many of whom have no idea where they came from.

1. Renai Circulation‘ Became The Internet’s Unofficial Theme Song

While Bakemonogatari is still praised in the anime community like a cult film, its fourth opening song, “Renai Circulation,” performed by Kana Hanazawa, transcended the anime and was immortalised online with the remix “Everybody’s Circulation” by TMABird.

“Everybody’s Circulation” is a fan edit that spliced various popular meme songs to the catchy opening song’s beat, including Smash Mouth’s “All Star” and Psy’s “Gangnam Style.

” Many people still consider “Everybody’s Circulation” to be the anime community’s anthem years after its YouTube premiere (and multiple copyright takedowns).

2. The Only Pokémon Song People Remember Is The Theme

Pokémon has approximately 1,200 episodes to date. Despite the fact that there are multiple opening and ending songs, the classic “Pokémon Theme,” or “Gotta Catch ‘Em All!” is the only one that fans tend to remember and appreciate.

Jason Paige’s song was written expressly for the anime’s English-language dub, and it’s since become a franchise staple.

The “Pokémon Theme” is more known than the anime’s first season, because to the original 150 Pokémon and certain notable scenes.

The song has subsequently come to represent the entire brand among English-speaking fans, and whenever a major Pokémon game or anime is released, it receives a surge in views and hits.

“A Cruel Angel’s Thesis” has been covered and altered more than anything else from the anime, whether it was done as a parody or as a genuine tribute.

Because to its enduring online presence, even anime beginners who have yet to view anything from Evangelion are already familiar with its introduction.

4. Haruhi Suzumiya’s Popularity Outlasted ‘God Knows

Haruhi singing “God Knows…” (sung by Haruhi’s voice actress, Aya Hirano) in the Cultural Festival is one of the most beloved moments from The Melancholy Of Haruhi Suzumiya.

Even after the anime’s demise, ENOZ’s performance left such an impression that “God Knows…” remained one of the most popular anime songs ever.

Regardless of what has been stated about Haruhi’s failed second season, her impact on anime is undeniable, as evidenced by the unwavering adoration for “God Knows…”

Nanako Kogure even sang a cover of the song in Remake Our Life!, much to the delight and nostalgia of anime fans all around the world.

5. Anime’s Emo Phase Was Resurrected With ‘Unravel’

Because of how closely it matched the emo trend of the 2000s, Tokyo Ghoul has become somewhat of a joke among anime aficionados.

“unravel” is also known as the “oshiete meme” or, more recently, “Donny’s Theme,” which was inspired by iFunny user Donny’s overly theatrical reaction to being catfished.
