Looking for anime piano songs to play?

With their emotional and catchy nature, it’s no doubt that Anime songs are as famous as Anime series. Though I have only watched a few anime series so far, I listen to a lot of anime music because I love how their lyrics and music are so meaningful and impressive.

Some anime songs sound so good on the piano that their piano covers and arrangements are more famous than the originals. If you love listening to Anime songs on the piano like me, I think you’ll love this list!

I’ve compiled 13 best anime songs that sound amazing on the piano along with the ones that are originally written for the piano. You will find their sheet music and tutorial videos if you’d like to play them on the piano as well!

There are both easy and advanced songs, so I hope you’ll find something that fits your level if you want to learn them.

Lilium-Elfen Lied

This tender song was the opening theme for the anime series Elfen Lied. The song is as magical as the series, and it seems that that Lilium has become even more famous as a song than the series over the years!

The piano version is wonderful and soft as well, and it’s an easy song to play, so I recommend that you give it a try if you are a beginner.

Unravel is a legendary anime soundtrack from Tokyo Ghoul, and this piano cover is the most viewed anime piano cover on Youtube. So, it’s safe to say that this piano cover has become another legend!

I know this piano version is impossible to play for most of us… However, you can check out this easy sheet music if you want to play Unravel, which sounds beautiful as well!

Kataware Doki-Your Name (Kimi no Na wa)

Your Name is a romantic fantasy movie that tells the story of a high school boy and a girl from different towns. Just like the movie, the song has a romantic feeling to it, which I really enjoy playing.

This is an excellent anime piano song to practice your chord-playing skills. It has a calm nature and doesn’t have any challenging parts, which makes it easy to learn.

All of the songs from this anime movie are actually fantastic and I enjoy playing all of them on the piano. I highly recommend checking out the full soundtrack album if you’ve enjoyed this one. 

Check out the piano songbook of the movie:

Sadness and Sorrow-Naruto

Sadness and Sorrow is the soundtrack of Naruto, which is one of the most famous anime series. It’s quite emotional and sorrowful, and this song represents Naruto’s loneliness.

Sadness and Sorrow is a quite calm song and should be played at a slow tempo, which makes it easy for beginners to learn.

This famous soundtrack of the anime series Fairy Tail is quite energetic and uplifting. It’s also quite repetitive and the dynamic changes are amazing.

A heavenly beautiful and touching soundtrack from Parasyte OP, which sounds really sweet on the piano.
