After ranking which anime songs are best to listen to when you’re tired or depressed, Japanese media website ranks which anime songs have the best lyrics.

About 100 people shopping in Nihonbashi in Osaka were asked which anime songs were the best based on lyrics alone. Here are the results for their survey.

1 Guren no Yumiya

Capture11 500x316 DDNavi ranks the anime songs with the best lyrics
anime: Attack on Titan
by: Linked Horizon

There you have it, the rocking lyrics of Linked Horizon’s Gurren no Yamiya wins the top spot with the heavy metal opening of Watamote coming in on second place. Linked Horizon’s Gurren no Yumiya lyrics contains some German and talk of a hunter conquering his prey while Watamote talks about the frustrations of an unpopular teenager which would really hit home to a lot of people.

Respectively coming at 3rd and 4th are the opening songs for Haiyore! Nyaruko-san. Both songs have funky and lively tunes which go well with their lively lyrics.

Again, these results are based on the results conducted by the DDNavi website in Osaka. If they were to conduct a nationwide survey, the results may be different. Do you agree with the results?
