Popular Japanese Music Variety Show List Down The Top 20 Anime Songs Loved By Foreigners

Seriously. Who made this list and why??!


Quiz! Doremifadon, a popular music variety show in Japan that aired on May 6, 2024, dropped a list that claims that the following is a list of the top 20 anime songs that are loved by the majority of fans overseas.

Although the list consists of some classical favorites, there are also some which are clearly mentioned due to recency-bias. And the fact that the list consists of songs from the 80s indicate that voters had ALL anime songs in mind and not just the recent ones. Take a look!

  1. Dragon Ball Z: CHA LA HEAD CHA LA
  2. Naruto Shippuden: Blue Bird
  3. One Piece: We Are
  4. Neon Genesis Evangelion: Cruel Angel’s Thesis
  5. Attack on Titan: Feuerroter Pfeil und Bogen
  6. Slam Dunk: Sekai ga Owaru Made wa…
  7. Your Name: Zen Zen Zense
  8. Slam Dunk: Kimi ga Suki da Sakebitai
  9. Digimon Adventure: Butter-Fly
  10. Demon Slayer (Kimetsu no Yaiba): Gurenge
  11. Oshi no Ko: Idol
  12. Haikyull: Fly High!!
  13. Saint Seiya: Pegasus Fantasy
  14. Mashle: Bling-Bang-Bang-Born
  15. Cowboy Bebop: Tank!
  16. Yu Yu Hakusho: Smile Bomb
  17. Chainsaw Man: KICK BACK
  18. One Piece Film Red: New Genesis
  19. Sailor Moon: Moonlight Densetsu
  20. Jujutsu Kaisen: Ao No Sumika

Personally, I don’t know how Blue Bird from Naruto is considered more iconic than Silhouette. Even Feuerroter Pfeil und Bogen from Attack on Titan is not as recognizable than Sasagayo. I mean, C’mon!

And I can think of 100 other songs that are better or more recognizable than Chainsaw Man’s KICK BACK.

Seriously. Who made this list and why??!
