Music info magazine CD & DL Data ran a poll a bit back and have just released the results for what would be people’s fave anime songs. See the full list of results after the jump.

The information for the poll collected information from 6,956 people (3,819 men and 3,137 women respectively) in their teens all the way to their 30’s, with the big question of what was their favourite anime song.

Very often the top choices end up as top karaoke choices too, so don’t be too surprised at the outcomes.

But first, the top three:

Cruel Angel Thesis / Neon Genesis Evangelion

Evangelion’s Cruel Angel Thesis has been reigning supreme as the number one anime song for quite awhile now; and was recent re-released in a 10th anniversary edition CD jacket. The song’s strong vocals and progression have made it an ageless fan fave, often bringing with it memories of the anime.

Touch / Touch

Second place falls to Baseball sports anime Touch, which seems to invoke memories of youth from the survey participants. Some of which even having memories of the song being sung as a high school baseball cheer.

Moonlight Densetsu / Sailor Moon

Third place falls to Sailor Moon’s iconic Moonlight Densetsu, which is likely etched into the minds of anyone who has ever seen the anime at least once. For many it was likely one of the first animes they’ve watched too, if they’re over the age of 30.
