While anime intros are designed for introducing the characters and the storyline to the viewers of the show, outros/ending songs are particularly designed to ease out the viewers by the end of each episode. Intros are made in such a way that they evoke feelings of excitement and anticipation about what will happen in that particular episode whereas, the outros serve a completely opposite purpose by presenting something that is a lot more subdued.
That’s probably the reason why these are forgotten too easily and compared to intros, no one hardly remembers those rhythms even in their blues. Also, the fact that they come after an entire episode, it is simply easier to skip them. But some anime endings are actually great and deserve to be seen. That’s is why we decided to make a list of the best anime ending songs that are worth listening and if you think you might have skipped them earlier, it’s time to for you to take a U-turn and check out these best anime ending theme songs listed below.
12. Cowboy Bebop (The Real Folk Blues)
In my previous articles on music in anime, I have mentioned quite a few times how Shinichiro Watanabe’s work is always inspired by Western music in one way or the other. ‘Cowboy Bebop‘ has quite a lot of influential Jazz tracks that are all mostly upbeat instrumentals. But this one right here is slightly different from all the others as it has some very powerful Japanese lyrics and flavor as well. The song has been performed by a band called ‘The Seatbelts’ and the man behind the vocals of this song is Mai Yamane. This ED has a slow pace that fits in perfectly with the light sentimental vibe of the anime. Every time I listen to this track, I can’t help but slowly drift into the good old “See You Space Cowboy” mood at the end of the anime.
11. Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure (Roundabout)
‘Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure’ is known to be one of the best long-running anime shows. Many of the background scores used in this anime have English language verses. After jumping through several eras and generations, the anime has managed to bring in a diverse set of tracks to back up its intense action sequences.
