All and anything related to anime on iTunes and any anime-related songs(OP, ED, OST, etc)
Purpose of this thread is to inform and discuss anime series and anime-related song on iTunes

I have seen an increasing amount of anime-related songs on iTunes, though they're very hard to find especially if the genre is not j-pop, j-rock or anime

Here is a list of some of the songs from different anime series available on iTunes (atleast of all the ones that I have seen while searching for songs ):



Most songs cost $0.99 and some cost $1.29, I have yet to see a anime-related song sold for $0.69

If anyone stumbles upon any anime-related songs on iTunes, that is not already listed on this thread, may you please post the song(s) info in this format:

[Song Title] "by" [Artist] [Anime Series] [#] [Intro, Outro, or Insert] [Optional: Album Title] [Instrumental\English\etc version Available? if none leave blank]

Example : "PSI (Missing)" by Mami Kawada To aru Majutsu no Index 1st Intro PSI Missing-EP (Instrumental version is available)
*Color Coding not necessary but it is helpful

Note: I live in the US so most of the songs may or may not be available outside of the US, most likely most if not all are available in Japan; iTunes Store

I buy most of my anime on iTunes, actually 90% of the anime I get/buy comes from iTunes .

List of the anime(either complete series or partial) I bought on iTunes:


I would like to see more anime on iTunes; I have no problem with the english dub though I still prefer the option of japanese audio with english subtitles; only the anime that I have really gotten accustomed to hearing the english dub of are the ones that I tend to buy.

To starts things off:

What are your thoughts of anime on iTunes? Good, Bad, worth the money?

Do you prefer digital copy or physical copy(DVD, Blu-ray) of a anime series?

All of the anime series on iTunes have the english dub audio track only, most, if not all, are also uncensored, and some of them are available in HD(720p)

SD version cost $1.99
HD version cost $2.99 (includes SD version)

If iTunes started adding the japanese audio with english subtitles on every anime series that they have on their library would you buy them?

Note: I don't know if TV shows are available outside of the US; iTunes Store.

If iTunes started to make anime series available outside of the US would you buy them or would still go for the physical copy?

Just download them from Youtube or something, it's way cheaper.

I would like to take the legal option rather than download from youtube and that only goes for anime songs; that is if the song is available on iTunes, as for anime series, I never download entire series or specific episodes.

Whenever I find a song on iTunes that I already have on my PC, I go and delete the copy that I have and I buy the song on iTunes, but I would rather skip that process and just buy from iTunes. I don't mind the price being $0.99 or $1.29 for a song though I do prefer the song be priced at $0.99 over the $1.29

Well that's your choice, then. I still support some artists by buying their CDs and merchandise, but when it comes to individual songs I think it's just cheaper to DL them online.

Which country's database are these available through? If it's the U.S. side, then I have to say that they're starting to improve their selection, because I've had to go through the Japanese side for several songs, which can get expensive very quickly. Most songs on iTunes Japan cost 200 Yen and the 3000 Yen iTunes Japan cards (15 songs) cost about 55 U.S. Dollars when going through J-List , so I'm effectively spending $3.67 per song. Naturally, this makes availability on the U.S. side really nice.

Edit: Ah, I didn't notice that you "answered" my question until after I posted. My apologies.

That being said, I'll go back over my music later and try to add any songs that I've purchased to this list that aren't already on it, and I'll try to include a [Country ] listing so that people can see if these songs are available in iTunes U.S. or in iTunes Japan (or both).

Its the US database, I have listed some of the song titles available on the US Itunes Store as well as some OST Albums. I'll keep searching on iTunes for more anime-related songs though I haven't seen every anime so it is a bit hard to recognize if a song is in a anime series or not.

Mosf of the songs listed I have bought or are on my iTunes wishlist

I've come across alot of Hatsune Mike songs on iTunes lately, i bought a few , I couldn't find some of the songs from Project Diva(Game) though. The songs I've been looking for are "levan polka", " Miku Miku ni shite ageru" , and "Moon"

The songs I bought are:
Shooting Star Prologue (feat. Hatsune Miku)
Soar (feat. Hatsune Miku)
Cendrillon (feat. Hatsune Miku & KAITO)
World is Mine (feat. Hatsune Miku)

That's interesting I saw the Eden of the East Movie King of Eden for $10(HD) $7(SD) on iTunes. I haven't gotten around to watching the King of Eden though; I hope the price doesn't change, for Paradise Lost that is

there are quite a few Stereopony songs on the US itunes. i found them after watching the second season of Darker than Black and the intro for that season was by them but then i also realized that one of the bleach seasons intro is by stereopony as well. but anyway i bought all of their albums because i liked their sound and because it was actually them. for all of the other anime songs that i have searched for and bought i could only find covers for them and though some are ok they generally tend to be disappointing

I searched Tokyo Mew Mew on iTunes two songs came up, both titled "My Sweet Heart" by Tokyo Mew Mew, the song is from the Intro credits of anime Tokyo Mew Mew but the original artist is Rika Komatsu. So basically "My Sweet Heart" by Tokyo Mew Mew is not the original since the original was by Rika Komatsu which I can't find songs by her.

The album Anime Parade, Vol 2 and Best of Anime No.2, the albums that have "My Sweet Heart" by Tokyo Mew Mew, both do not have the original songs of any anime including Tokyo Mew Mew's Intro credit song

As for Buono!, its pretty hard to find some of the songs since the titles are in japanese but I was able to find them:
For anyone looking for the songs:

" こころのたまご (Kokoro no Tamago)" by Buono! Shugo Chara 1st Intro song Album: しゅごキャラ!ソング♪ベスト Price: $0.99

" みんなだいすき(Minna Daisuki)" by Buono! Shugo Chara 2nd Intro song Album: しゅごキャラ!ソング♪ベスト Price: $0.99

"ホントのじぶん(Honto no Jibun) " by Buono! Shugo Chara 1st Outro song Album: The Best Buono! Price: $0.99
^ also on the Album: Putti Best 8

" 恋愛♥ライダー(Renai ♥ Rider)" by Buono! Shugo Chara 2nd Outro song Album: The Best Buono! Price: $0.99

"Kiss Kiss Kiss" by Buono! Shugo Chara 3rd Outro song Album: The Best Buono! Price: $0.99

One song I could not find was "Gachinko de Ikou! (ガチンコでいこう!)" Shugo Chara 4th Outro Theme

I was able to find alot of the original songs but I have also came across some of the covers as well, the initial post has most of the anime-related songs I found on iTunes(US), some of them I bought some of them I came across while searching.
I came across the Intro song for Gundam 00 the song: "Namida No Mukou" on the Album A Hydrangea Blooms.
