February is known by some as the "Month of Anime" but the year 2017 marks the centennial anniversary of Japanese animation or so they say. Last weekend, there was a special programming aired on NHK highlighting the best 100 anime songs in history and, as they said, these are the best 100 anime songs in history, be it opening, closing, or insert, whatever maybe as long as they came from anime shows as seen on TV.

Amazingly, the Love Live franchise scored the most songs in the rankings than any other anime shows. From the now legendary μ's to the rising Aqours in Love Live Sunshine, whose first Love Live concert is happening this weekend, it's no wonder that it became one of the most successful anime franchises in history when it comes to anime songs.
