Music is very important in anime, be it the OP, the ED, or the insert song. Anime won’t really be complete without AniSongs, and a lot of them are performed by women. For this week’s Charapedia poll, they asked 10,000 fans which AniSongs have the best female vocals.
63.8% who voted are male, while 36.2% who voted are female. The poll featured 49 different AniSongs, all of which are sang by female artistes, however, only the Top 20 were revealed, and they are:
20 – Don’t Say “Lazy” (K-On!)
19 – Yukitoki ()My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU)
18 – Red Fraction (Black Lagoon)

While fan-favorite, Cruel Angel’s Thesis, has only made it to 13th place and not even getting to the Top 10, another timeless AniSong, Only My Railgun, managed to secure the top spot, and proving that fripSide’s beloved and action-packed OP song for A Certain Scientific Railgun is one of the greatest AniSongs ever.
While fripSide takes multiple OP songs in the Top 20, taking 1st and 16th just for the A Certain series, LiSA managed to get three entries into the Top 10, with the highest going to Rising Hope.
