    [Anime/Music] Your favorite music in anime.

    I do not watch very much anime, but if I have learned one thing, it's that a lot of the time, it tends to have great music. I was hoping that I could hear some of your favorites that I've never heard before, and I'd like to share my favorite as well! It can be a theme song, or any song that plays during the show itself. It can have lyrics or it can be instrumental, it doesn't matter!

    This is personally my top favorite, hands down, and it also happens to be from my favorite anime (although I think the manga is much better)! I find it really haunting and beautiful, and it's one of the few songs that I like to listen to while falling asleep.

    Lilium from Elfen Lied.



    Os iusti meditabitur sapientiam,
    Et lingua eius loquetur indicium.
    Beatus vir qui suffert tentationem,
    Quoniqm cum probates fuerit accipient coronam vitae.
    Kyrie, ignis divine, eleison
    O quam sancta, quam serena,
    quam benigma, quam amoena
    O castitatis lilium



    The Mouth of Justice meditates wisdom
    And His language, the tongue is made clear.
    Bless man which suffers temptation.
    Since, he, with striving, will have received life’s crown.
    Oh Lord, Fire Divine, have mercy!
    Oh, How Holy! How Serene!
    How Kind! How Pleasant!
    Oh Pure Lily!
    My name is Cernunnos, I will love you like no other, I have died a thousand deaths, each time I died I thought of you.

    I don't watch much anime, but I've always been partial to the music immediately preceding Cell's obliteration at the hands of Gohan.

    Thanks everybody! Keep it coming. I'm assembling a playlist of all of the songs that I like. I wish that I had more to share myself, but my knowledge is so limited!

    Special thanks to Digglett for introducing me to Kaijura Yuki!

    I still love it after all these years, hell, I love pretty much all of the Cowboy Bebop music. A lot of other music I like has already been linked, so here are a few I like that I can find and I haven't seen linked yet.

    Ugh, Its hard not listing all the anime music i have on my iphone.

    Yoko Kanno is a goddess, seconding Cyberbird as well as:

    Also seconding everything from Yuki Kaijura, Ship of Fools alone made Tsubasa worth watching.

    And then Joe Hisaishi.

    ^ is going to play at my funeral, if people werent already crying - they will be after hearing this.

    And finally, no song since Ship of Fools has defined an anime for me as much as Next Chapter for FMA:B. This track is amazing.

    Kajiura Yuki is fantastic, she also did the music for all of Xenosaga and Kara no Kyoukai.

    Another of my favorites is Ootani Kou, who composed the music for Haibane Renmei, as well as Shadow of the Colossus.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BbOnvj9wZKc (OK, this one's from a video game, but it's a damn good OST)

    I also enjoy the Monogatari OSTs, so here's another good one from that.

    And some Spice and Wolf to end this post.
