Last time, I posted the list of the BEST Anime Openings that I love. Now I will count down the BEST (lol, in my opinion only ^_^ no flame wars please!) ANIME ENDING THEMES that I love!!! There would be only fifteen songs because I only find a few ED themes that I like ^_^. Like the rules of last time, there would only be ONE song per anime series and anime shown from the 1980’s below were totally out of my list. So here it goes!!!
15: REASON – Gundam SEED Destiny 1st ED
Nami Tamaki is one of my fave J-Pop singers. Her song for Gundam SEED Destiny fits the dramatic side of Gundam very well and it had always been stuck on my head (and my iPod) since.
14: MOON IN THE WATER – Beck Mongolian Chop Squad insert song and 2nd ED
BECK is one of the FEW animes that I found the dub version isn’t that bad. The song ‘Moon In The Water’ (or ‘Full Moon Sways’ to some is a great ballad in Engrish. The ending video accompanied it with relaxing views of nature, and the moon.
13: TAISHOU.A – Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai ED
The calmness of the song is very deceiving to what the singer is implying. I love the breezy feel the song has and the ED video has some symbolisms in it to take notice of.
12: DANGO DAIKAZOKU – Clannad ED
LOL, you are not expecting this one right? The reason why I put this song up here is because of the dangos!!! besides from the top-notch animation from Kyo-Ani, the song is perfect for a lullaby and the ED itself carries another thing that Clannad would be remembered of: Dangos.
11: NINGYO HIME – Chobits 2nd ED
The melancholic tune and lyrics of this song is very haunting and I love it to bits. This ED was first shown on the ‘more serious and dark’ side of Chobits and it gave me ‘the chillz’ the first time I saw it. Clamp did a great job on picking this song for the series.
Watch out for the next part which would be shown later!!!
