Every anime fan has an opinion on what’s the best anime song of all time. So that kind of debate is endless.

If it was left up to me I’d vote for the Pokemon theme song. But instead of doing that, let’s base the most popular anime songs on which songs have the most views on YouTube.

That way is not debatable and more objectively accurate.


If you have more songs to add, leave your favorites in the comments.

Note: each anime song was found by searching “anime songs” on YouTube, with the “most viewed” filter.

I am pissed beyond comprehension due to the fact Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure – Giorno’s Theme is not here. A video of Giorno’s Theme has 113 million views


I wonder why there’s too many mixes when there are a lot of anime music that were far exceeded these number of views like silhouette of naruto shippu, gurenge of kny, inferno of fire force, crying for rain of domestic kanojo and so much more!


You might want to fact check a little bit harder next time on your article. For example, the No Game No Life OP has nearly 115 Million Views lol.
