For a long time I’ve believed, like a lot of people, that there is no better way to tell a story than through music or visual stimulation. If you’ve seen a Pixar short in the theaters you know exactly what I’m talking about. When you can tell a complete narrative or convey a wide range of emotions with a single word being uttered by a character you have, in my opinion, have reached cinematic/theatrical perfection. So, rather than list and talk about my picks for the 6 most hauntingly beautiful anime songs I’ve ever heard, I’m simply going to post videos and let you enjoy them yourselves.
Disclaimer: This will be a video heavy post so it might take a while to load. Enjoy!!!
#6 Mayuka’s Theme (Tenchi Muyo: Daughter of Darkness)
#5 Yasashii Yoake (.hack//SIGN)
#4 Melfina’s Song (Outlaw Star)
#3 The Ballad of Fallen Angels (Cowboy Bebop)
#2 Inner Universe (Ghost In The Shell: Stand Alone Complex)
#1 The Will (Samurai X (Rurouni Kenshin): Trust And Betrayal)
Small note: I heard this song a while back and couldn’t find it for years until a few months ago in History of Trunks Abridged by TeamFourStar. It drove me crazy!! xD
