The karaoke business has taken a hit because of COVID, but there are still plenty of people partaking in the musical outlet. Daiichi Kosho, a Japanese electronic company, shared which anime songs in 2021 got the most attention on their DAM karaoke-on-demand service.

Only new anime are included on this list, as one of the prerequisites is that the anime involved had to have ended its air time during last year. Think what new anime songs you’d most want to sing, and take a look to see if they match up to anything on this list. And, no, LiSA and Demon Slayer did not take the number one spot!

10. “Koko de Iki o Shite” by eill — the ending theme of Tokyo Revengers
9. “Gotobun no Katachi” by Nakano-ke no Itsutsugo — the opening theme of The Quintessential Quintuplets Season 2
8. “Infinity” by Yuri — the ending theme of Sk8 the Infinity
7. “No. 1” by DISH// — the opening theme of My Hero Academia Season 5
6. “Mahi” by yama — the opening theme of 2.43 Seiin High School Boys Volleyball Team
5. “Yume o Kakeru!” by the cast (Azumi Waki, Marika Kouno, Machico, Ayaka Ohashi, Chisa Kimura, Hitomi Ueda, and Saori Onishi)— the opening theme of Uma Musume Pretty Derby Season 2
4. “Akeboshi” by LiSA — the opening theme of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Mugen Train Arc
3. “Yasashii Suisei” by YOASOBI — the ending theme of BEASTARS Season 2
2. “Cry Baby” by Official Hige Dandism — the opening theme of Tokyo Revengers

Which means we’re down to the winner. Drum roll, please . . .

The most used karaoke song in 2021 with a new anime song was “Kaibutsu” by YOASOBI, the opening theme of BEASTARS Season 2!

What do you think of this list? Do any of these songs make you want to sing? Or is there another opening or ending theme song from 2021 you think should have made the list?
