1. Piano UC No.3 (Composed by Hiroyuki Sawano, Gundam Unicorn)

Each OST of Gundam Unicorn has a piano track included, of which the piece in the 3rd OST is the most emotional of them all. For maximum tear-jerker effect, watch the original episode where it plays.

2. Yuku Kaze ni, Omoi Hasete (Produced by Elements Garden, Senki Zesshou Symphogear)

Not only does this anime have famous ani-song powerhouse Mizuki Nana contributing songs, it also has a good instrumental soundtrack! A very short sweet piece, but long enough for you to put down whatever you're doing and listen to what it has to offer.

3. Let the Stars Fall Down (Composed by Yuki Kajiura, fate/zero)

Now a change in tempo! We can't always be having emotional pieces, or we wouldn't be getting any work done :P One of the more popular animes airing its second season this summer, this soundtrack is not to be missed!

4. Sakura's Theme II (Produced by Takayuki Negishi, Cardcaptor Sakura)

Now who doesn't remember this theme song! (Do you hear her voice start playing in your head...!) It plays in almost every single episode of the series, since it plays whenever Sakura uses her magic to save the day!
