I find that when the cast sing the opening or ending song, the series is more enjoyable and I get more attached to the characters. But I've only came across a couple and I'm trying to find more.

Examples: Assassination Classroom OP 1, Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai ED 1

Offhand examples that haven't been listed:
Yuru Yuri (all seasons)
Hidamari Sketch
Hinako Note
Anne Happy
Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon (ED theme)
Gochuumon wa Usagi Desu Ka
A-Channel
Mikakunin de Shinkoukei
Gugure Kokkuri-San
Monster Musume
Tantei Opera Milky Holmes
Ga-Rei: Zero (VA did the OP theme)
Fairy Tail

Basically what the first half implies is you could throw a dart at a list slice of life series and chances are at least one of the theme songs will be sung by the characters.

Comic Girls was for whatever reason the first thing that came to mind. Blend S too. I think its most common for SoL and CGDCT shows to do this.

The ED of Sora yori mo Tooi Basho has the entire main cast singing it together. One of my favorite EDs ever. ^_^

Actually all the EDs have the cast singing. It's just a different girl for each iteration.

To add on to what others have already mentioned,

Blend S OP
Beatless (technically as one of the seiyuu's is part of the group that sings the 2nd OP)
Fuuka and Shinsekai Yori have 1 ep ED's sang by a character
Grand Blue ED
Umaru chan OP and ED
Our Love is Always 10 cm Apart ED
Sound! Euphorium ED
Beyond the Boundary OP
Lovers Suicide through Rakugo OP

but ye the series' with the best case of cast singing the OP/ED are Monogatari and Working (more so Working since it has the main females sing the OP and the main males sing the ED)
'On-Hold' is another way for a completionist to say 'Dropped'

Pretty common with series starring Nana Mizuki in a voice role, so stuff like the various Nanoha series, the various Symphogear series, Cross Ange, etc.

The iDOLM@STER naturally does too.

Depends

Meta and self-aware OP? Tesagure! Bukatsu-mono is so meta it isn't even 1:30 long.

More and more characters joining the singing? Etotama has a new character join the ED each episode starting with Nyaa-tan.

Interested in idols? Love Live! features a group of girls that become an idol group to save their school from closing.

Kitakubu has 4 (technically 5 if you count the last episode) different EDs sung by different characters of the show.

Despite the type of show One Room is, the full version songs sung by each character's VA are pretty good.

There are so many good shows out there that will match your criteria. Do some searching, look at some recommendations, and watch stuff that interests you.

Bruh it's like 3 minutes long each episode, and a lot of people are expecting it
to be "fleshed out" and with detailed characters, what the fuck?

Death, taxes, and hard regression to the mean.

I recall songs being sung by cast members in:

Bakemonogatari and the other ~monogatari series sequels
Cat Planet Cuties
K-On
Macross Series
The Melanchily of Haruhi Suzumiya
Red Garden
White Album

Also probably any other music anime or those with idols or music scenes.

Cat Planet Cuties


The OP for Cat Planet Cuties is by Sphere, a girl group all of whom are also anime voice actresses. All four have roles in that series, though I don't think any of them are main characters.

I wish there was more anime with non-diagetic musical numbers during the show proper, not just the OP/ED.

The episode with the ancient assisdroid has a musical number where the entire cast sings some "old song" about a lonely spaceman that was supposedly the theme song from some in-series anime.

i love the ending theme to Bunny Girl Senpai. it has which girl the arc is about singing it and then by the end of the series they are all singing it. on top of having the peggies do the OP, the music was one of the better parts of that show.

Well, it's rather conspicuously the characters singing it, so naturally, they had the characters' voice actors do the singing.

If you're talking about recognizing the voices, I suck at that so I can't say much on that point.

Yahari Ore no Seishun's gotta be my favorite.

The 2 main heroines sing the ending as a duo in both season 1 and 2. What's better is that they also have alternate versions where they sing solo.

nana's openings and endings were sung by anna tsuchiya and olivia lufkin though, who aren't the voice actors for nana & hachi. think OP here wanted animes where the voice actors sings the songs.
