Death Note Anime Opening & Ending Theme Songs With Lyrics

Death Note Original Soundtrack
Death Note Original Soundtrack

I would not be joking if I said that Death Note was one of the best animes I have ever seen. In fact, it's one of my favorite animes of all time. It's not like your typical anime with robots or swordfighting or totally clueless boys/girls. I would even say that Death Note is an anime for intellectuals and those looking for mental stimulation, not just fighting or eye candy (although Light Yagami, the main character, is eye candy on his own... hehe...).

The opening and ending themes and animation sequences of Death Note are also quite good. I have to warn you though that the ones by Maximum the Hormone are a bit "loud" if you know what I mean. Personally, I like "The World" and "Alumina" by Nightmare. Listen for yourself and let me know what you think. :)

Death Note Opening Theme 1

"The World" by Nightmare

Hirogaru yami no naka Kawashiatta Kakumei no chigiri
Dare ni mo jamasaseru wake ni wa ikanai kara

Kajitsu ga tsugeta mirai
Yume, risou ni kaeru

Dare mo ga nozonda “owari” o…

Hirogaru yami no naka Kawashiatta Kakumei no chigiri
Dare ni mo jamasaseru wake ni wa ikanai
Itsuka boku ga misete ageru Hikarikagayaku sekai o

Death Note Ending Theme 1

"Alumina" by Nightmare

Dare ni mo mirenai yume o mite
Iranai mono wa subete suteta
Yuzurenai omoi Kono mune ni yadoshite

Mada riaru idearu no hazama ni ite
Gisei no kase ni ashi o torarete mo
Afureru shoudou osaekireba
Tsuyoku motomeru kokoro ga aru kara

“Itsuwari” “Osore” “Kyoshoku” “Urei”
Samazama na negateibu ni
Torawareru hodo yowaku wa nai
Kodoku mo shiranu trickster

Death Note Ending Theme 2

"Zetsubō Billy" by Maximum the Hormone

Towa ni utsu kono ichi peeji
Hakanai senpou sono me ni
Aigan sezumo hou ni aku tsunagou rou he

Nooto ni moudoku bannou ni osore idaku
Oouso no mousou ni yodare ga taema naku
Sabaki hanzai toukatsu to hozaku
Dare ga dakaisaku nado wakaru?

Menzai no waarudo
Seisai no waado

Eru netsu masani "desu paireetsu"
Aganau houritsu geemu

Zetsubou za birii Iza rinri
Saa tomerarenai eraser rain
Zetsubou za birii Iza rinri
Saa tomerarenai eraser rain
Tomerarenai eraser rain
