ANIME WEEK: Anime Songs for Any Occasion

It's ANIME WEEK here at Behold the Geek!, and today is the day we rock out to some anime soundtrack music!

They say the music we play is the soundtrack of our lives, and what better music to listen to than some cool songs from anime! Whatever you're feeling, whatever you're doing, there's always the perfect anime song to accompany it!

These are the anime songs you listen to when...

Waking up in the morning...

What better way to wake up to a kawaii morning than listening to some Ho-kago Tea Time? Cagayake! GIRLS' sugary sweet yet j-pop beat is ideal for when you need to get genki for your day.

Crushing on someone...

Feelin' melancholic over that special someone who has grabbed your heart with a rare intensity? Put this on play and watch the feels wash over you.

Confessing your love...

Even the lyrics goad you on to man up and tell that special someone you like them very, very, very, very much.

Arriving at your school/office...

Naruto Shippuden's first OP is a great entrance song. Walk into your office/classroom listening to this and watch sparks fly.

Writing reports, assignments, etc...

Courtesy of Death Note, Light Yagami's leitmotif for when doing something dastardly in the anime is an awesome accompaniment for when jotting down notes or minutes in a meeting. Just be careful to write normally.

Doing ANYTHING mundane (washing dishes, taking out the trash, etc...)...

Seriously. Guren no Yumiya is so damn catchy and glorious it makes anything you do while listening to it awesome by association. Play this while cutting potatoes or washing dishes and feel yourself doing it 10x faster and angrier.  Warning: DO NOT listen to this while driving or you'll find your foot involuntarily reaching for the gas pedal.


These are just some examples of everyday feelings and happenings made more awesome with anime music! So what other cool soundtracks from anime is good to listen to when the occasion calls for it? Leave us some suggestions via the comment box below!

Thanks to my friend Kat from for the help in choosing songs! And thank YOU for reading! Stay tuned for more ANIME WEEK awesomeness tomorrow!

  1. For starting the day I recommend Shouko Nakagawa's "Sorairo Days" from TTGL.

    When arriving at the office (starting from stepping off the elevator and walking along the corridors to your office space), try "Unicorn" from Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn, probably the best and most epic instrumental intro music for a mecha. You'll feel invincible if you walk into your office under this track.

    For driving fast at night, try Macross Frontier's "Iteza Gogo Kuji Don't Be Late" by Sheryl Nome (voiced by May'n)

    For couples walking hand in hand underneath an umbrella in the rain, definitely listen to "Secret Base ~Kimi ga Kureta Mono~ (10 Years After) by Zone (comprised of VA's Ai Kayano, Haruka Tomatsu and Saori Hayami)

    1. Welcome to the blog kuya UC! :D

      And yes, seconding Sorairo Days. I also have that on my playlist as I head to the office. :)

      And thank you for the other suggestions. I have not listened to anything Unicorn related, sadly, but knowing your tastes, I'm sure that is really the best instrumental ever!

      Also, nice one on the HHWWUAUITR (holding hands while walking under an umbrella in the rain) song! /thumbsup

  2. Low of Solipsism is perhaps one of the best anime background theme that I've heard and would listen to especially if I am writing stuff online. That feels is just...Awesome!

    On the other hand, I prefer listening to Jiyuu no Tsubasa, which is the 2nd opening theme of SnK since it's more consistent in its entirety as compared to Guren no Yumiya which somehow looses its rhythm after the first few minutes imo.

    Anyway, keep writing!
