    I'm not just astonished that a song from D.N.A.^2 made the list, I'm also astonished that it's not "Blurry Eyes" from L'Arc En Ciel.

    I know EVANGELION's really only a year younger than the D.N.A.^2 TV anime but I didn't think D.N.A.^2 got anywhere near the level of mainstream awareness and nostalgia as EVA does in Japan. Or maybe it's just that the song "Single Bed" was popular independently of D.N.A.^2 and most Japanese karaoke crooners aren't even aware that that song was used in an anime from 1994.

    Fucking misleading. You're only citing from the "Anime/Games" section of the rankings, OF COURSE it's all anime songs. Most of those are not anywhere near the real overall top rankings.

    It`s not the first time, and is not going to be the last time, that an entry on this site is misleading as fuck... keep at it.

    18. only my railgun (To Aru Kagaku no Railgun)

    Proves the ranking is utterly wrong. It's strange for a song to be nº1 for over 6 years to suddenly fall that low.

    Not strange, only fanbois will keep alive while the normies move on.

    this cartoon is insanely popular in Japan. I remember that "let it go" played like crazy in every seven-eleven / family-mart in Tokyo :/
