Hmmm... Imma make a thread.

To preface, this is not about actual character theme songs. I know there are plenty out there, but this is a subjective thread; it's about what you think would make a good theme song for an anime character.

And on that note, what do you think? Is there a song you think fits a character to a T? Or maybe you could imagine that character singing the song themselves? Or maybe you just think the song would make a good AMV for them? Your reasoning can be anything, really. And hell, it doesn't even need to be a single character; if you want to do one for a pair of characters, or even a group, feel free.

For myself, I actually started thinking about this, like, a month ago, so I've come up with a few already. A good number of them made me chuckle, so I thought I'd share, as well as see what others come up with.

And without further ado, here are a couple of my ideas:

Tastuhiro Sato (Welcome to the NHK)
Theme Song: Who Can It Be Now? - Men At Work

"Is it the man come to take me away?"

Well if by "the man," you mean a rogue Jehovah's Witness dead set on 'fixing' you, then yes, yes it is.

Kaiki Deishu (Monogatari series)
Theme Song: The Pretender - Foo Fighters

"What if I say you're not like the others?
What if I say I'm not just another one
Of your plays?
You're the pretender!"

Pretty appropriate for a fake specialist. And I could totally see Aragari busting this out against him.

Betelgeuse Romanee-Conti (Re:Zero - Starting Life in Another World)
Theme Song: Invisible Touch - Genesis

"He seems to have an invisible touch, yeah
He takes control, and slowly tears you apart!"

I laughed at the Invisible Touch comparison XP

Mai Minakami‘s theme would just be whatever meme song has recently been trending at any given time and only JUST become out of date enough to cause anyone who hears it to groan in intense disappointment.

Well, good. That means I did my job.

Anyway, I'm going to post some more:

Yuno Gasai (Future Diary/Mirai Nikki. whichever you prefer)
Theme Song: Every Breath You Take - The Police

While this works for any stalker character, Yuno gets double points due to the nature of her Yukiteru Diary.

Sakamoto-kun (Haven't You Heard? I'm Sakamoto)
Theme Song: Flawless (Go To The City) - George Michael

You know, because he's "ABSOLUTELY FLAWLESS!"
