The Top 7 Cutest Anime Songs
Anime theme songs can make or break your show. The opening theme has to be catchy and upbeat while the ending is usually more mellow. Kimetsu no Yaiba’s (Demon Slayer), Attack On Titan, and Neon Genesis Evangelion are perfect examples of great opening and closing theme songs, but there are many out there to rival them.
One of the best ways to make your anime show a hit is to create a catchy, uptempo, cute song that will stay in the memory of fans long after the show has ended. So we put together a list of the seven cutest anime songs that will get you up and dancing along with your favorite shows.

School Rumble: Scramble
Performed by Horie Yui and UNSCANDAL, this anime opening song makes the top of the list of kawaii anime music for being both catchy and chaotic at the same time. The high-pitched tones of Yui and the jazzy vibes of UNSCANDAL will make anyone get out of their seat and start dancing.

Contrasting the strange and sometimes melancholy adventures of the show, the ending song always brings fans back to the good vibes we loved in the first place.

Ouran HighSchool Host Club: Cherry Blossom Kiss
With a name like Cherry Blossom Kiss, you know the song is going to be cute! Serving as the opening theme song of one of the best shoujo anime, Ouran High School Host Club, it is sung by Japanese pop star Chieko Kawabe. This opening song fits the tone of this anime which follows Haruhi Fujioka’s life as she works in her high school’s host club to pay off a debt.
Will the main characters kiss or fall in love? We don’t really know but the song keeps us on the edge of our seats every time. Despite being over 15 years old, this song is still a favorite among anime fans.
Bakemonogatari: Renai Circulation
You wouldn’t guess that a story about vampires would have such a cute opening song, but Renai Circulation makes the list as one of the cutest anime songs out there. From a series of light novels, high school boy Koyomi Aragi is bitten by a vampire which leads to circumstances unfolding that leave audiences laughing and crying.
Sung by Kana Hanazawa, her high-pitched voice and the catchy beat has turned this song into a total earworm for anime fans. Search hard enough and you’ll even find TikToks or other videos of people dancing to this bop. Why don’t you give it a try?
Chobits: Let Me Be with You
Another oldie but goodie, Let Me Be with You was sung by AmaLee and is the epitome of cute Japanese Euro beats. Hideki Motsuwa dreams of having a persocom (an android computer) and a girlfriend, and accidentally finds both when he meets the mysterious Chi. While Hideki tries to teach her about human life, he struggles with holding back his feelings for her.
The song perfectly captures the cute and often frustrating feelings of wanting to be with someone that might not be socially accepted. The popularity of the show and song even inspired a cute dance to go along with it. So start practicing and get ready to dance along to the beat.

Kaichou wa Maid-Sama: My Secret
It’s not surprising that one of the cutest anime couples would also have one of the cutest anime songs. Sung by Saya Mizuno, the opening theme is featured in the anime from beginning to end. Appropriately named My Secret, the song pairs well with Misaki Ayuzawa’s attempt at keeping her double life a secret from her friends.
Unfortunately, Takumi, her classmate and love interest, discovers her secret, but instead of holding it against her, he helps Misaki keep up appearances. The upbeat song sounds as colorful as the show, and while there’s not a dance to accompany the lyrics, you’ll likely want to buy a maid outfit to dance in anyway.

Cardcaptor Sakura: Catch You Catch Me!
A CLAMP classic and fan favorite, Cardcaptor Sakura follows the story of Sakura as she uses her new magical powers to battle the legendary Clow Reed enemies. Sung by GUMI, Catch You Catch Me is the opening song of the first season and is a favorite among longtime anime fans.
Despite being over 20 years old, fans can still appreciate the upbeat vocals of GUMI as she was able to capture this popular show’s cute aesthetics and romantic relationships. It might be time to open YouTube and relive the nostalgia of this classic show!
Anime songs are probably one of the best aspects of watching an anime show. While the plot will keep you hooked during its run time, the songs will keep the show alive in your heart for years to come. And the cutest anime songs are always able to withstand the test of time.
