As I did last year, here is the list of what I thought the top 10 anime EDs of 2009 were. Enjoy!
10. “Kimi ni, Mune Kyun” by Yu Kobayashi, Asami Sanada and Marina Inoue – Maria Holic ED
This was kind an odd ED, though it probably fit the series in that regard. It kind of grew on me, though, after a while.
9. “Hajimari no Asa ni Hikari Are” by midori – Shangri-la ED
I’m kind of surprised this landed as low as it did. I guess it says something about the quality of the EDs this past year.
8. “Transparent” by KOKIA – Phantom: Requiem for the Phantom ED2
Like KOKIA’s OP for the same series, this one is somewhat eerie, and as a result, fits the series well
7. “Zetsubou Restaurant” by Zetsubou Shoujotachi – Zan Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei ED1
This is kind of a funny ED. I’ve never seen any of these series, though it kinda almost makes me want to
6. “Link” by angela – Asura Cryin’ ED1
Another good song by angela. Many of the songs for this show were good, and this was the best one, but the only one to make the lists.
5. “Koi no Uta” by Haruka Tomatsu – Shinkyoku Soukai Polyphonica Crimson S ED
This is kind of a nice, soft but feel-good-like song, with interesting animation to add to it.
4. “BACCHIKOI!!!” by DEV PARADE – Naurto Shippuden ED8
Yes, I even check out OPs and EDs for shows like Naruto when doing this list. For once, they had one which was not only good enough to make a list, but high on the list. This ED is just hilarious to me, even though I’ve never watched the show.
3. “Blue sky, True sky” by Aira Yuhki – Tears to Tiara ED1
This was a tough choice for the #3 spot, but I think this song was, overall, a bit better quality.
2. “Don’t say ”lazy”” by Yoko Hikasa with Aki Toyosaki, Satomi Satou and Minako Kotobuki – K-ON ED
This song was a pretty easy choice for #2. The show might not have been that great, but it did have some good music.
1. “Hikari to Yami to Toki no Hate” by Ceui – Sora wo Miageru Shoujo no Hitomi ni Utsuru Sekai ED
I melt whenever I hear this. This was a no-brainer as #1 on my list.
