8 Best Anime Piano Songs That You Should Know Update 04/2024

Anime songs are unquestionably as well-known as the shows they accompany, thanks to the songs’ passionate and catchy character. Even though I’ve only seen a few anime shows, I’m a big fan of anime music since the lyrics and music are always very profound.

They sound so good on the piano that some anime songs are more popular than the originals themselves. Like me, you’ll enjoy this selection of Anime piano tunes if you enjoy listening to them.

I’ve put together a list of 8 of the best anime songs that sound great when played on the piano, as well as some that were written specifically for the instrument. If you’d want to learn how to play these songs on the piano, you can find both the sheet music and instructional videos online.

If you’re interested in learning any of these songs, I’ve included both beginner- and intermediate-level options.

1. Lilium-Elfen Lied

For the anime series Elfen Lied, the opening theme was a heartfelt rendition of this song. Despite the fact that Lilium has grown more popular as a song than the series, it’s still as magical as the anime itself!

Even if you’re a beginner, you should attempt playing this on piano because the piano version is lovely and soothing.

Arrangements in the form of sheet music

2. Unravel-Tokyo Ghoul

Tokyo Ghoul’s Unravel soundtrack is iconic, and this piano cover is YouTube’s most-watched anime piano cover. In other words, this piano cover is now a classic.

For most of us, this piano version is beyond our abilities… If you’d rather to play Unravel, which is equally as lovely, you can use this simple sheet music.

3. Kataware Doki-Your Name (Kimi no Na wa)

To depict the narrative of two high school students from two separate towns, Your Name is a romantic fantasy film. My favorite part about playing this song is the romantic atmosphere it has like in the movie.

To hone your chord-playing skills, this is a great anime piano music. As a result of its laid-back tone and lack of difficult sections, it is simple to pick up and play.

I love playing the piano and singing along to all of the songs from this anime movie. If you’ve enjoyed this one, you should definitely check out the whole soundtrack album.

The movie’s piano songbook can be found here:

4. Sadness and Sorrow-Naruto

Music composed by Sadness and Sorrow can be heard on Naruto, one of the most well-known anime series of all time. Quite sad and dramatic, this song captures Naruto’s sense of isolation.

Sadness and Sorrow is an easy tune for beginners to perform because of its mellow speed.

Sheet music that isn’t difficult to read

5. You Can Become a Hero!-Boku no Hero Academia

I love this song because it’s full of optimism and ambition like the series, and it sounds fantastic on the piano!

This is yet another simple tune that even a complete beginner may pick up.

6. Again-Your Lie in April

It is a sorrowful anime about a kid prodigy who loses all his passion for music until he meets a violinist girl, Your Lie In April. Listening to the soundtrack is a great way to get a sense of the emotional intensity of the story.

7. Fairy Tail Main Theme

There is a lot of dynamism and positivity in this music from the anime series Fairy Tail. Aside from that, it’s a lot of fun to see the dynamic shifts.

8. This Game-No Life No Game

A lot of fun to listen to and play, this is the album’s opening track. The original song begins with a calm piano melody before transitioning into a rock tune halfway through. I can’t wait to hear more of great music in Season 2!
