After playing a wide range of iconic video game music during the opening ceremony, the Tokyo 2020 Olympics also played a bunch of iconic anime music, including the opening tracks of Demon Slayer, Attack on Titan, and more!

As compiled by SoraNews24, a selection of anime music was played during various events at the Tokyo Olympics. To start off, “Gurren no Yumiya,” the opening theme of Attack on Titan Season 1, was played during the archery competition. This was fitting as “Gurren no Yumiya translates into “Crimson Bow and Arrow” in English.

Next up, another anime opening was played during the archery event, this time it was LiSA’s “Gurenge” from Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba.

The anime tracks weren’t limited to the archery competition though. During the women’s basketball event, “Kimi ga Suki da to Sakebitai,” the opening of the iconic basketball anime Slam Dunk, was played.

At the men’s volleyball event, another anime opening was played. Can you guess which song played? Of course it’s “Hikari Are” from the volleyball anime, Haikyuu.

Aside from these tracks, there were also other songs from various anime that were played in other Olympic events. There were also songs from the likes of Zoids Chaotic Century, and even a song from Ghost in the Shell 2.
