Mizuki-san didn't do a very good job.. ( ; _ ; )

Then again, there are four entries in the top spots. Nice!!!

Very disappointing, but then again this is anime music. Not much to expect.

Man, it's sooo tough to pick. I'm not sure if I like the FMA OP/ED listed as much as I wanted to. I probably only like the Refrain of Yui's "Again".

Hooray for gundam 00. It has nice music definately. Especially "prototype".

OP ftw!

Dec 18, 2009 4:59 PM by Chronowarp

The Album CD list all has good things :D

K-ON! truly had the best sound (Inb4 rage) so it being the best seller pleases me.

"Kimi no Shiranai Monogatari" deserves to be top spot. Best anime theme song all year, iimho. Hooray for "again" by YUI on 3rd spot! All others are irrelevant.

And here I thought that the Gunin Saga ED single Saga ~ This is my Road by Kanon deserved the top spot

More One Piece is better than the rest stuff, glad to see anything beat K-On though

Yay for Summer Rain! One of the few good songs of the list.

agreed, it makes sense though since Kobukuro are huge in Japan. I actually thought they would be higher since I remember following the Oricon charts at the time at the single 'Niji' which Summer Rain is of was up there for ages, not to mention their other single and album too :)

Damn K-on though, hate those songs.

What happened to Eden of the East?

Dec 18, 2009 1:05 PM by CreamyVelvet

I like K-ON!, so, y'know.

But yeah, Kimi no Shiranai Monogatari is frickin' beautiful and should be higher.

btw where the hell is Eden of the East opening o_O

damn japanesse dont like Oasis ? :(

I would rather see the ED, futuristic imagination, by school food punishment. THAT was the best anime song of the year. But the OP was good, too.

Happy to see Bakemonogatari and FMA: B OP there, though. Sadly, almost all of the K-ON! songs are up on the list. They were good, but extremely overrated.

Some mentionable singles (that sadly couldn't make it to the list) are imo:
Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood ED2 Single: LET IT OUT - Miho Fukuhara
The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya (2009) OP Single: Super Driver - Aya Hirano
CANAAN OP Singe: mind as Judgment - Faylan
Phantom ~Requiem for the Phantom~ OP1 Single: KARMA - KOKIA
Spice and Wolf II OP Single: Mitsu no Yoake - Akino Arai
And of course: Eden of the East Movie 1: The King of Eden OP Single: light prayer - school food punishment, but it wasn't long since it was released, so it couldn't possibly have a chance to get to the list.

No Maria†Holic OP or ED singles... I'm not amused.
