Senna has been used countless times to add huge dramatic effect, usually for a sudden strike or the arrival of a powerful figure. It works. Every time.
Speaking of theme songs, "Ichirin no Hana", debuting with a broadcast special consisting of 2 awesome episodes, also falls squarely here.
Number One "TONIGHT, TONIGHT, TONIGHT", the opening of the Bount arc, was also pretty badass.
Can anyone say ?
Breakthrough Even The 5th Opening song, "Rolling star".
"After Dark" by ASIAN KUNG-FU GENERATION was Bleach's 7th Opening. Also "Velonica" by Aqua Timez for Opening 9.
The BGMs Attack on the Beat and Back to the Wall add a healthy dose of epic to any fight.
"D-tecnoLife" was an excellent introduction to the second season.
"* ~Asterisk~" by ORANGE RANGE. The OP for the first season of the show. Also, "Houkiboshi" by Younha, the third ED.
"* ~Asterisk~" went to top of the charts the second it was released in 2005, and stayed there for 22 weeks. Now if that doesn't say something about how awesome that song is, nothing will.
"Hitohira no Hanabira" ranks among the greatest anime EDs of all time.
The 10th opening theme, "Shoujo S".
What can you see in their eyes from the third movie is pretty awesome too.
This song is a sort of Canon Immigrant. Treachery was both used in the second movie OST and as a Theme Music Power-Up for Nnoitra's One-Winged Angel. It catches the attention for being an example of Surprisingly Good Ominous English Chanting.
Shinji's Theme, Can't Back Down.
Power to Strive, which plays when Grimmjow finally releases Pantera, is just awesome.
B13a, which plays in the one-sided battle scene between Hisagi and Fraccion Findor in Episode 219, and features in Ichigo and Aizen's final battle.
This track sounds great (one from 0:05 to 1:18), yet it's not on any of the OSTs.
The fifth ED song, YUI's "LIFE". I CAN CHANGE MY LIFE~
Domino Del Chad and Quincy's Craft. The latter is pretty nerdy, but still qualifies since it's Ishida's fight song.
The 13th OP, Ranbu no Melody by SID.
Irish Dance, Ukitake and Shunsui's theme when they use Shikai in Fade to Black.
Then we have one of the very first OSTs, Soundscape to Ardor. There is no way you cannot be reminded of a very heartwarming event.
Escalon. Just... Escalon... Is it possible to watch this and not be reminded of Shinji's fight with Grimmjow?
Kubo chooses theme songs for most of the important characters.
Ichigo - News From the Front by Bad Religion, Chad - No Song Unheard by The Hellacopters, Isshin - Don't Drag Me Down by Social Distortion, Ulquiorra - Moonshield by In Flames, Grimmjow - Step Inside by A Bombs, and Kyoraku - Por Una Cabeza by Carlos Gardel to name a few.
The first ending theme, "Life is Like a Boat". It's just beautifully sad-sounding, but ultimately still hopeful.
A04a from the 3rd movie.
On the Precipice of Defeat.
Here's a good one: Stand Up Be Strong from the third movie, both Part I and II.
Its most iconic use so far is Ichigo unveiling the Final Getsuga Tenshou in his fight against Aizen.
From Porno Graffitti, we get the ending theme for the Bleach: Fade to Black movie, Koyoi, Tsuki ga Miezu Tomo.
Number One (Instrumental Version).
The ending theme for "Memories of Nobody", Sen no Yoru wo Koete, is really very beautiful and a definite Award Bait Song.
Number One, with more cowbell.
Never Meant To Belong is extremely heartwrenching in a beautiful way. It has just enough of a hopeful feel to not feel cheesy, while the well-orchestrated instruments make this one a winner.
From the Bount arc, we have Torn Apart.
The whole FREAKING soundtrack of the fourth movie "Hell Verse". Shiro Sagisu has seriously managed to top MANY songs from the other Bleach OSTs in sheer awesomeness. Most of the songs contain Ominous English Chanting of epic proportions. After listening some might accuse him of recycling some old songs from earlier Bleach seasons, but it's like the old songs took MANY levels in pure epicness.
Recently, there's been a limited edition of the 4th movie, complete with extra tracks... and here's some of them:
"Nothing Can Be Explained".
The 14th opening, "BLUE", is just awesome.
And here's the 15th opening, HARUKAZE by SCANDAL.
Between Ichirin no Hana, ALONES, Velonica, and chAnge, all the best Bleach openings are in multiples of three.
"Storm Center" makes any fight scene about ten times better.
'Get Smart' is incredibly catchy.
Clavar la Espada. Catchy with a Spanish theme, what more could you ask for?
The epic Pleasure of Combat also qualifies.
La Distancia Para Un Duelo.
The 15th Ending, Orange.
Emergence of the haunted.
Endings 10, 13, and 27 Sakura Biyori, Tane wo Maku Hibi, and Aoi Tori are simply gorgeous.
Ending 25 Last Moment and Ending 28 Haruka Kanata are just straight up Bad Ass.
Aqua Timez closes out the series with the epic 30th Ending, MASK.
