I've noticed for over a while now that some songs in anime are sung by the voice actors portraying the characters themselves, most commonly being a song their character sings during an episode of the show. Every now and then though there's that one intro or outro that is done by one of the voice actors. So I was curious that if any of you had any favorite anime songs, whether they be intros, outros, or songs done in-show?

For me personally, it has to be(so far) the voice actor for Kirito from Sword Art Online singing about his deep, unending love for panties in the anime "The Comic Artist and his Assistants". Here's a link to the song:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vd4azpvTH7s

This was the only version I could find that didn't have the final episode attached to it, but still showed the voice actor/character singing it. Don't worry as the song is in no way a spoiler so if you haven't seen the show yet nothing will be ruined by watching/listening to it, hence why I didn't put a spoiler warning up. The first like 6 seconds are missing translated lyrics though, but someone posted the lyrics in a comment down below for those interested in those missing 5-7 seconds.

The two VAs for the MC in Locodol do the opening theme. http://youtu.be/IfOcBmPfDEs
Then all the VAs for the girl characters do the closing theme. http://youtu.be/fqEx-rfP9bc One nice thing about the end theme is as the girls are added to the show they modify the last graphic.

A recent favorite is "My Dear" sung by Takahiro Sakurai. It's the last ending of Polar Bear Cafe, and it fits with the show so much. Man, there needs to be another season of this. And it may or may not have to do with the fact that Takahiro Sakurai is also the voice of my husbando

The Kizuna version of Dear You sung by the Higurashi cast is the first one that pops into my head.

Shinsekai yori - Wareta Ringo by Risa Taneda. I just love it. Risa-san is the lead protagonist, Saki.

Were the songs sung in Angel Beats by the school band the actual voice actors for the characters or are my ears racist?

Mmm...probably F.D.D or By My Side, both by Kanako Itou. And then there's also Aoki Tsuki Michite by AKIRA which is something I could listen to over and over. Honestly, I love anime music so there are a lot of favourites...but these I listen to on repeat for months on end. Plus, they're really good songs. Not crap.

Everything LoveLive, I guess. And that song on the TV when Yabecchi visited the Marui household in Mitsudomoe.

For in-show songs, gotta go with Lumis Eterne. In fact, her singing convinced me to start learning Esperanto. It just goes to show how talented her voice actress is for being able to sing in a foreign language (and, although not perfect, she has almost no accent).

The "Chronicles of the Going Home Club" opening is also a personal favorite of mine - though many people didn't really like it. I just find it so catchy! You can really tell that the voices actresses are singing it because it doesn't sound so "overly" perfect. It's hard to explain what I mean, but I really like that realism. It's one of the reason why I like idol music even when the idols aren't always the absolute best singers in the whole world.
