Do you love anime? Do you love singing? Do you love to sing and rock out to your favorite anime songs? We do too! Whether it's the opening theme, the ending theme, or even an insert song, we couldn't help but sing and dance to our favorite anime tune!

There are so many Anisongs out there that it can sometimes be hard to find which songs to sing. So, here are our 10 recommended Anisongs that you can sing with your friends or during your own solo karaoke session!

1. A Cruel Angel's Thesis by Yoko Kano (Neon Genesis Evangelion OP)

A Cruel Angel's Thesis by Yoko Kano is one anisong that we recommend to everyone looking for any songs to sing.

A Cruel Angel's Thesis by Yoko Kano is the opening theme song to the popular anime series Evangelion. You may have watched the anime; if not, you may have at least heard of this song. A Cruel Angel's Thesis debuted in October 1996 and is among the most famous and well-known anisongs recognized within and outside Japan. This song may seem difficult to sing because of its fast tempo on its chorus, but don't let that fool you. The tempo of the music isn't too fast to sing, especially once you have the lyrics down. It's a must-have anisong to sing in any karaoke session.

Bonus: This song is very well known in Japan to even people who aren't anime fans, so if you have a karaoke session in Japan and have no idea what Japanese song to sing, try singing this song. It will surely impress your Japanese friends.

2. Moonlight Densetsu by Dali (Sailor Moon OP 1)

If you're looking for a more nostalgic anime, what about singing Moonlight Densetsu (Moonlight Legend) by Dali?

Moonlight Densetsu is the original opening theme song of the popular magical girl anime Sailor Moon. While the new openings of the Sailor Moon remake, Sailor Moon Crystal, were all great, nothing beats the original opening of Sailor Moon. Like Evangelion's opening theme, A Cruel Angel's Thesis, Moonlight Densetsu is also one of the most well-known opening songs in the anime music industry, both within and outside Japan. Thanks to Sailor Moon's popularity, many versions of this song are sung in different languages. So, even if you can't sing this song in Japanese, thanks to the melody being kept mostly the same in most of Moonlight Densetsu versions, you can still enjoy singing this song by singing the rendition of Moonlight Densetsu that you know.

3. Sugar Song to Bitter Step by Unison Square Garden (Blood Blockade Battlefront ED 1)

For a happy, party-style song you might want to sing for a karaoke party with friends, we recommend trying your hand at singing Sugar Song to Bitter Step by Unison Square Garden.

Sugar Song to Bitter Step, sung by Unison Square Garden, was the first ending theme song to an anime called Blood Blockade Battlefront. Sugar Song to Bitter Step is a catchy song you cannot help but get up and start dancing to. Having this song in your lists of anisongs to sing will surely lighten up any party. It might be a difficult song to sing due to how fast it is, but once you know the lyrics and get the hang of it, you'll impress those around you. So, why not give this song a try?

4. Mixed Nuts by Official HIGEDANdism (SPYxFAMILY OP 1)

If you want a more recent song, why not sing Mixed Nuts by Official HigeDandism?

Debuted just last year in April, Mixed Nuts was composed and sung by Official HigeDandism and is the first opening theme song of the popular anime SPYxFAMILY. It's an upbeat song with jazz-like music in the mix. This song will make you feel like you are living a double life as an undercover spy, which matches the SPYxFAMILY theme perfectly. The song is so catchy that you can't help but sing along. Although it may be difficult singing this song at its current pace without knowing the lyrics, once you do, you'll surely be the star of any karaoke session.

5. God Knows by Aya Hirano (The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya Insert Song)

Another song we recommend singing is God Knows sung by Aya Hirano, for more nostalgic anime songs.

God Knows by Aya Hirano is an insert song in a popular anime called The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. It was first shown in an episode where Haruhi and her friends formed a band to sing at their school's cultural festival. We recommend having this as one of the songs to sing in any karaoke session or party. It's a popular song to have in your list of anisongs to sing. The music isn't too fast or slow, so once you have the lyrics down, you can rock hard at any karaoke session.

6. Butter-Fly by Koji Wada (Digimon OP 1)

Another anisong that we recommend adding to your anisong lists is called Butter-Fly.

Butter-Fly is the very first opening song of Digimon Adventure and was sung by the late Koji Wada. This song is good to have in your singing arsenal not only because it's good but how easily it can be sung once you know the lyrics. This song is also well-known and can bring nostalgic feelings to those who are fans of Digimon, especially those who grew up watching Digimon Adventure. This song has many different versions since it's been used in most Digimon Adventure animated projects (except for the remake). They kept the music mostly the same, with only some slight changes depending on what versions you'll sing. So, you can sing either the original or the newer version, if you prefer.

7. Dearest by Ayumi Hamasaki (Inuyasha ED 3)

For a calmer and slower song, we recommend Dearest by Ayumi Hamasaki.
Dearest is the third ending of the anime Inuyasha, composed and sung by Ayumi Hamasaki. Unlike the other songs recommended before, Dearest is a bit slower and calmer to sing to. The song's slow melody allows people to follow the lyrics, making it an excellent song to practice your Japanese. It is a perfect song for people looking for something slow and easy to sing. It is also a good song choice to take a break from all the upbeat songs you may have sung.

8. Gurenge by LiSA (Demon Slayer: Kimetsu No Yaiba OP 1)

To continue the list of recent songs to sing for your karaoke session, try singing to Gurenge by LiSA.
Gurenge is the opening theme song to the popular anime series Kimetsu no Yaiba (Demon Slayer). Thanks to the popularity of Kimetsu no Yaiba, Gurenge is one of the songs that is also recognized both within and outside of Japan, making it a good song choice to sing at a karaoke party with friends. This song isn't too fast to sing, nor too slow; there is only one part in the music that can be difficult to sing due to the sudden fast tempo, so props to you if you can sing that part of the song.

9. Hero Too by KYOKA JIRO Starring Chrissy Costanza (My Hero Academia Insert Song)

Want more songs to sing that are even easier in karaoke? Do you want to sing an anime song but want to sing it in English? Then we recommend trying to sing Hero Too by KYOKA JIRO Starring Chrissy Costanza.

Singing this song will keep you rocking and make you feel like a hero. We recommend adding this song to your list of karaoke songs to sing.

10. Cha-La Head-Cha-La by Hironobu Kageyama (Dragon Ball Z OP 1)
