What are some great anime romance shows

Music Anime - Complete list of the best

A genre widely used in Japan is music, whether with bands or classical instruments. If we think about it, we wrote this article with a full list of the best music anime of all time. Additionally, we will leave a full list of these animes for those who want to explore the genre 100%. We will also record the famous idol anime.

In order not to be chaotic, we will leave it separated into categories of bands, instruments (classical music) and idols. We will not leave any order or ranking, we believe that each music anime mentioned in this list has its merits, the other anime will be in a final list. If an anime is missing from the list or you want to comment on it, use the comments section at the bottom of the article.

Some anime songs only focus on music while others have a deeper story and leave music as a background. We are going to leave a number of • (1-3) that represent how much music there is in the anime.

Anime or classical music instruments

Shigatsu wa Kimi in use - This is hands down one of the best and saddest music anime ever. A heavy drama with piano and violin. Art, designer, soundtrack, story, characters, and direction are all worth a masterpiece.

Like any anime, it has its flaws, but it is a mandatory anime for those who like the genre. He tells the story of a boy with the trauma of playing the piano because of his mother until he finds a violinist to help him overcome it. MANDATORY! •••

Nodame Cantabile - Another very good anime with a lot of comedy and drama with classical music. This was one of the anime that breathed life into the genre. It tells the story of a mad pianist who likes to play freely without being dependent on rules and scores, and a perfectionist musician who only knows how to obey rules. The anime has multiple seasons and even drama. SUPER RECOMMEND! •••

Sakamichi no Apollon - An anime that deals with the jazz genre and is often ignored. It tells the story of a classical pianist named Kaoru who is introduced to the world of jazz music by an offender named Sentarou. The anime shows the bonds between friendship and music.VERY GOOD! •••

Piano with Mori - A film with a piano in the forest. I'm not sure how to describe this story, but I recommend it!

Hibike! Euphonium - A fresh and light anime with a different proposal that mixes songs, moe and instruments that we didn't expect in an anime. The anime has a good backstory full of mystery and drama. We put him in the instruments category, but they're a school club band. RECOMMENDED! •• ••.

Other classical music animes:

  • Kono Oto Tomare!
  • Detective Conan - Movie 12;
  • Piano;
  • Haruchika;
  • Princess tutu;
  • La Corda D'Oro;

Music anime with bands

k-on - One of the most famous and well-known anime of the genre. It tells the story of an entertainment club with five adorable, cute and talented girls. The anime is light, fun and very popular. SUPER RECOMMEND! •• ••.

Nana - An anime that focuses on drama and adult people. It tells the story of 2 girls named Nana who share an apartment. One is a punk rocker, the other is a dreamer looking for romance. The anime has a great soundtrack and captures viewers with a deep story. MANDATORY! • •

Beck - It tells the story of a band of the same name with 5 young musicians who have to deal with growing fame and daily struggles. The anime songs are made by the voice actors themselves, which takes you on a journey of wild rock. SUPER RECOMMEND! •• ••.

Detroit Metal City - This funny anime follows the story of a shy boy who has always dreamed of being a pop idol but to pay the bills he joins a death metal band. SUPER RECOMMEND! •• ••.

White Album 2 - Although they were written 2, they are different stories. It shows the story of a singer, pianist and an indecisive boy, a very difficult drama with a surprising ending. Anime seems to focus on music at first, but the romance of the story goes much further. MANDATORY! • (1 is cool too ...)

So Ra No Wo To - Tells the story of Kanata who joins the military just to play the horn. The anime shows the motivation and inspiration in the music, in addition to the army's hard training. VERY GOOD! •• ••.

Music anime with idols and singers

The iDOLM @ STER - The second most famous idol anime with the story of 13 girls striving! The anime shows a story of friendship and struggle! VERY GOOD! •• ••.

Full moon where sagashite - It may look more like an anime Moe with a Sailor Moon face, but it's a dark theme that is different from the traditional Shoujo anime. The main character is diagnosed with throat cancer and her singing career seems impossible, but she doesn't want to give up. PERFECT! ••
