Best anime music ♪

My favourite and the most memorable openings, endings and background music in anime. I will name the artist, song and attempt to put a link to each song in the description. Please bear in mind that links may be dead (YouTube tends to delete a lot of the videos I use) and it would be very difficult to keep track of them all. Currently squishing dead links and trying to add to the list little by little. DISCLAIMER: all of my lists only contain entries from anime I’ve seen or am watching, usually I enter them when I’m finished with them for clarity.

OP - Aka no Kakera - Suzuki Yuki -Link

Great OP, mediocre anime.

3 91 Days

ED - Rain or Shine - ELISA - Link

The instruments used in this song and even ELISA's voice really fits the time period the anime is set in, it feels like the kind of song that might play in a speakeasy or classy bar or club in the '20s.

Also, the BGM is really well-done and perfectly fits the time period of the show. Enjoy!
