Inspirational Anime Songs:


1. Soul Eater Music – Krieg by Iwasaki Taku

And this track from Soul Eater will do just that for you!

There’s something about this Code Geass song that’s inspirational, calming, and great to listen to. It will make you feel good inside, and that in itself is inspiring.

Give it a try 🙂

This main theme music from Magic Knight Rayearth is a powerful tune. With many different instruments are soothing to listen to.

At over 4 minutes long, this is the ideal instrumental to start off your day right. And get you inspired!


4. Doil no Kanashimi by Hikaru Nanase – Scrapped Princess

This instrumental is over 1 minute 43 seconds long. And it’s packed with such a great tune and instrumentals that are nice to listen to. And will make you feel inspired, inside and out.

Taken from the Anime show – Scrapped Princess.


5. Opening Theme Song (English) – Fruits Basket

YouTube video

This is my favourite opening song off the entire list. It’s one of the shortest, but the vocals are just beautiful and enjoyable to listen to.

And the lyrics are so inspirational that there’s no way your day won’t start off well after listening.


6. Misaki Junchou March – Maid Sama

YouTube video

This is a “feel good, happy” kind of song from Maid Sama. And with the high instrumentals, there’s no way you won’t feel good and even inspired listening to this.

It’s not the longest tune, but it’s fun and even fun songs can be inspiring.


7. Unmei To Koikokoro – Inuyasha

YouTube video

Besides the Fruits Basket song, this has to be one of my favourite of all time. The vocals are just amazing, and the pace of the instrumental is just right.

I get a lot of inspiration from this one, and I’m sure you will find some, too.


8. Opening Theme Song (English) – Sailor Moon

YouTube video

If you’re an Anime fan, you can see why this song would be here. It’s a classic, it’s fun to listen to, it’s memorable, and it’s catchy.

Inspiration is written all over this instrumental. This one shouldn’t be ignored.


9. BlumenKranz Soundtrack – Kill La Kill

YouTube video

This is a powerful track full of high energy and strong vocals.


10. What Time Does Love – Slayers Anime

YouTube video

What makes this song so inspirational? It’s the build-up.

The song progresses and changes at a pace I like.


11. Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni OST – Yasuragi

YouTube video

Seeing as Higurashi When They Cry is a horror anime series with dark tones and disturbed content, this is one of the songs that’s nice, pleasant, and surprisingly more inspiring.

This is the type of song to listen to while relaxing.


12. kokoro connect OST yokatta

YouTube video

As one person commented:

“I’m gonna play this everytime a problem with my friends get resolved”

This is that type of inspirational anime song.

It’s different to others and has a nice tune that progresses.


13. Kanon OST – 2 Steps Forward

YouTube video

Kanon is a slice of life anime from Kyoto Animation, much like Clannad in its designs and themes. But it does stand alone.

Despite being less popular than Clannad, the anime’s themes, it’s tunes, OSTs, songs, and wholesome vibes can’t be denied.

This is an OST that leads by example.


14. Clannad OST – Shining In The Sky

YouTube video

This is a beautiful song in the most literal way it could possibly be. The piano, the instruments, everything about it is in a class of its own.

It’s a Clannad favourite.

The comments alone on this video speak volumes and get pretty emotional.


15. Lycoris Recoil OST – Cheerful

YouTube video

This is one of those inspirational anime songs that are short, to the point, cheery, and happy.

It’s not too dramatic in any kind of way and will remind you of the good, fun moments in Lycoris Recoil’s anime series.


16. Fairy Tail 2014 OST – Erza Advent

YouTube video

As one fan commented:

“Seriously! I feel powerful listening to this. Just….. WOW!”

That’s the kind of track you can expect from Fairy Tail and from a character like ERZA, who is an inspiring anime character in her own right.


17. Bleadh OST – Stand Up Be Strong

YouTube video

Bleach fans know this tune well. You can’t watch all of Bleach and NOT know about this OST.

It’s a defining moment in the anime series and one that won’t be forgotten in Shounen history.

Stand up, be strong.


18. SAO OST – Find Your Sword In This Land

YouTube video

Sword Art Online since day one has had some of the best songs going. And this is one of their most inspirational anime songs to date.

With millions of views, it speaks for itself.

Hate the anime all you want, the song quality can’t be denied.


19. Full Metal Panic OST – Tatakau M9 (Remake)

YouTube video

This is a short soundtrack and one with a lot of energy from the FMP series. When Sousuke Sagara is in his M9 (arm slave mecha) this is the music that plays at a certain stage of the series.

It’s hype, energetic, and has some intensity mixed with inspirational vibes.


20. Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni OST – Setsunakute

YouTube video

This is another Higurashi soundtrack that’s a break away from the usual dark stuff.

It gives peace, calm, and something more pleasant and inspiring as an anime song.
