Mel’s Top 10 Insert Song

 

Hi Everyone!

I always liked insert song, like the background music it give a different vibe to a scene, making it more exciting or sad, it can also be a great introduction to a character or just be part of the story. Back in 2016, I published a post about my top 5 insert song heard in anime, now that I have watched a lot more series and heard many more song, I think it is time for me to give you a top 10 post.

 

10th Position

Title: Poeme of Truth
Series: Chain Chronicle: Light of Haecceitas
Composer: Masato Kouda

This track can be heard in the anime series Chain Chronicle: Light of Haecceitas (Winter 2017), it’s is performed by Musica voice actress, the song is sung as a spell to awaken a powerful dragon. It’s start slowly without instrumentation, then the piano join in. The track just sound magical.

9th Positon

Title: Melody of the Fight
Series: Chain Chronicle: Light of Haecceitias
Composer: Masato Kouda

This song can also be heard in Chain Chronicle: Light of Haecceitas and is also sung my Musica voice actress. This song is also used as a spell. It was sung to break the shield of Blackness surrounding the Black Land. It’s a powerful song that open with percussion followed by brass section. This is a typical fantasy fight song and work so well with the scene in which it play

8th Position

Title: Barricade
Series: Attack on Titan, Season 2
Composer: Hiroyuki Sawano

Coming from Attack on Titan OST, “Barricade” can be heard in the last episode of the second season. It’s the song that is playing when Eren can’t transform. The song is performed by Yush, Gemi and mpi

7th Position

Title: Pushing the Sky
Series: Cowboy Bebop Movie: Knocking on Heaven’s Door
Composer: Yoko Kanno

Coming from the Cowboy Bebop movie, the song played during Vincent and Spike fight toward the end of the movie is performed by The Seatsbelt with Mai Yamano vocals.

6th Position

Title: Reluctant Hero
Series: Attack on Titan
Composer: Hiroyuki Sawano

This one is coming from the first season of Attack on Titan and can be heard for the first time when Levi is introduced in the 3rd episode. Performed by mpi, the song might not be official Levi theme, but the lyric suit the characters, this is probably why the melody of the song was used as melody of Levi character song.

Reluctant Hero can also be heard in the second season, however it’s more acoustic.

Honorable Mention
“JJ Theme” and “Tale of a Sleeping Prince”, both song can be heard in Yuri on Ice and was used as skating program song.

5th Position

Title: Ancient Magus’ Bride Official Theme
Series: Ancient Magus Bride
Composer: Matsumoto Junichi

Also known other the name of “Iruna Etelero” or “Lindel’s song”, the track is sung by Lindel himself ( Lindel voice actor is Namikawa Daisuke, however the song is performed by Takenaka Daichi). This track has pretty much the same effect on me that “Poeme of Truth” is have a calming magical vibe coming from it.
I would really like to tell you in which language the song is, since it’s clearly not japanese, but I can’t tell you…. If one of you figure it out, let me know in the comment section below.

4th Position

Title: Anno Domini
Series: Ancient Magus’ Bride
Composer: Matsumoto Junichi

Performed by Hibiki Hojo, this song is played when Chise and Ruth make the familiar contract. I remember the first time I heard it when the series aired, I absolutely loved it.

3rd Position

Title: Wake up call
Series: Bungo Stray Dogs, Dead Apple
Composer: Iwasaki Taku

Entering the top 3 with one of the song that fit the most the scene in which is played. “Wake Up Call” performed by the Japanese rapper LotusJuice is played during the scene where Chuuya is fighting against one of the Antagonists of the movie. This was one of the most exciting sequences of the movie in my opinion, Chuuya using Corruption always look cool but it’s become 100× cooler with that song in the background.

2nd Position

Title: Requiem of Red
Series: K-project
Composer: KATSU

For a long time this song was at the number one spot, until I heard the current number one. “Requiem of Red” is played in the last episode of K-Project, it is performed by Anna (Yui Horie) and the Red clansmen. This track is talking about Mikoto and the bond he made with his clansmen. Mikoto’s death didn’t affect me right away with it happen, however soon as I heard the song I started tearing up.

1st Position

Title: Just Another Hero
Series: My Hero Academia
Composer: Hayashi Yuki

I love this song like it make me feel thing. Performed by Steven McNair, it play in the second season of My Hero Academia, when Endeavour is fighting a Nomu. While is is said as to be Endeavor theme song, it can really be all pro-hero and student theme song.

  1. Music is always something that can really bring a series to life. I think it’s a sometimes very underrated aspect of an anime. That said, I really liked the first song, it reminds me of one of my favorite songs that I have ever heard in anime. And that was Aimo from Macross Frontier. Here is a link to it: https://youtu.be/5FCHfwZMkmw 😊
    Wonderful post 😀
