Ending themes normally don't get the love they deserve, so this a list that consists of a variety of genres, from jazz to rap, but each of them has this strong melodic effect that will surely make you either sing, dance or, at the very least, headbanging you at the rhythm of the song.

Ordered from the most recent to oldest with links included.

If the word "banger" would be a song, THIS would be the song! This anime truly has one of the most beautiful and astonishing visuals ever seen in the medium, but also has a nice lo-fi soundtrack and great themes within. Proof of this is this Ending; it is so good that I've been engage by it and repeat it over and over. This banger doesn't have the right to be this good.

Fun fact: the manga was named after this song.

This ending is great, from the simpleness of characters drawn in strokes to the fantastic choreography that they throw at an endless swag. But, of course, that is just the cherry on top, since that banger of a song is the complete dessert, and what a dessert huh.

Always, but always give me rap-jazz, always.

Has it ever happened to you that you love something so much that, when it comes to explaining it, you just can't find a way to do it? That you can't find the words? Well, that's what happens to me with this ending, but I'll try.

I'm not an expert in music or anything, I don't want to sound pretentious, but from those first notes on the keyboard I feel trapped by a melody like no other. Things get better, when the singer Riko Azuna starts singing in a quite catchy rap rhythm I can't help but keep listening. At a certain point it has a strange feeling of nostalgia and the visuals go along quite well, they give me a sense of sadness and loneliness. In conclusion, this song is something beautiful.

Putting foreshadows that even the manga didn't have aside, I can say that I really love this ending. First, because of the creepy visuals that has an art style that kind of reminds me of renaissance art, showing us more of the mythology and history of Snk trough an awe yet intriguing animation. Also, of course, the song; singing in English with an ambiguous pronunciation so we can't fully understand, it adds to the formula!

Awesome.

C'mon! C'mon you know this one!

Meme or not, the song by progressive band Yes is simply majestic. And the way each episode ended in a cliffhanger while at the same time the acoustic intro begins is incredible, such a wise choose of an Ending song.

It's a bit hard to describe this Ending and do it justice, so I'll just say that I love it with all my heart. Nujabes instrumental part, MINMI singing at the same time we see trough Fuu's childhood... Incredible.

The feeling of ambiguity and uncertainty during the series carries over to this beautiful piece of music, along with a single image of the nameless monster provides a fantastic vibe.

The Pillows have that indie rock feeling that can bring this coming of age to its full potential. Also, classic Gainax combining real-life footage with the animation.

This feels depressive, in every way possible. The Opening is very good, but I think this fits more with the tone that is Berserk.

There has been tons of covers of this song, made in 1954, three of them very popular. One of those happens to be the ending for this legendary series, which sadly, due to license problems, it couldn't be in the Netflix broadcast. Still, you can always play it on YT.

This version in particular retains the jazz rhythm of the original, but with a more slowed paced to bring more sadness at the mix.
