Not sure if anyone here listens to the characters songs. But, if you do, what do you enjoy listening to?
Kuranosuke Shiraishi's Go on, Tsuioku, Ashiato - All good tunes & vocals. Translated lyrics are acceptable.
Keigo Atobe's Will, Existence - Will is beautiful
Kunimitsu Tezuka's White Message (With Love Version) - Just beautiful
Kazuya Tokugawa's Survival Destiny - Same reason as Shiraishi
I'll add more when I listen to more.

I forgot to say Welcome to you back then. So, I'm gonna say it now. Welcome to MH.
Now on the topic:
I haven't really heard many character songs. But I like:
Yukimura's character song Shinjitsu, Shiraishi's Tsuoiku & Nio's bluest sky.
Well I haven't really heard a lot of character songs tbh, I just know that Michiru Fukishi's songs are good enough to make him a kinda popular character in Japan (and that's a lot, considering he appears in like 10 panels and 2 anime chapters, lol)
I do find the anime music really enjoyable though, as I stated in another comment, these are my fav:
And I know that almost everyone hates the NPoT intro (I did too) but now when I go back to watch the NPoT anime, that song has a ¨PoT is back, isn't that awesome? ¨ feeling, dunno how to explain it, lol.
NPoT OP: "Mirai no Bokura e" is an awesome song. The artist has fairly talented vocals too. He sings Pop/Ballad/Opera. He sings a lot better than all the ones in Hollywood.
@ Philia: Thanks for the welcome. I, too like Shinjitsu. I listen to it from time to time but not as often. Bluest Sky is okay. Yuki Masuda does have good vocals though.
I've uploaded quite a few characters songs on my youtube account. Perhaps you can check it out :P
Here's the link: http://www.youtube.com/channel/UC9CM...acDmQTg/videos All the songs I've uploaded are songs I liked at some stage.

I like 12345 Ready Go and Dear Prince (with context), both of which Hardy listed already. Also agreeing with him on the NPoT opening, kinda warmed up to it over time. If we're talking about openings from the original anime, I'd have to go with Dream Believer though.
As for character songs, Yanagi's Master Plan and Sanada's No Surrender come to mind, although I haven't listened to all that many.
My favourite opening theme is Fly High :P
Guess I'm one of the few who has listened to many character songs/albums
My favorite opening themes are Fly High & Across my Line.

Maybe we should make a poll about everyone's favourite OP, including OVAs and NPoT. I wonder what the winner would be.
Another good song: Trick, Fake, Or Truth (Original Karaoke) by Yanagi Renji and Nio Masaharu. Good tune.

Added a poll with all the opening themes I found on the wiki.
So if I've missed any, blame Airgrimes.
Tough time choosing between Mirai no Bokura e and Fly High. But former wins.

Additional good character song: I Like Bored Days - Shiraishi Kuranosuke
I like the soundtrack in the OVA when Inui and Kaidoh starts to make a comeback against Kirihara and Yanagi, and also the bit where Echizen gets a flashback before he enters Tenimuhou...but I've yet to find those tracks yet :/
The one where Ryoma gets a flashback of all his past opponents before TnK? -Unreleased my friend.
There are like 20+ Unreleased OST's I've noticed in the PoT series.
Across My Line & Brand New Heaven are my favourite openings.
Mirai no Bokura E is also pretty nice.
But Across My Line probably takes it for me.
I was listening to this cover again and remembered we had a music thread, so there you go.
Also, what's the best Party Time (OVA ED) version in your opinion (we didn't talk about this yet, did we)?
Well, I never really listened to PoT songs apart from openings and endings. (my favourite opening is Dream Believer btw)
The only character song I listened to a long time ago is that veeeery old one :
@Kaoz : the cover you posted is really nice.
I've been hooked in Survival Destiny lately!! I really like character songs in general, I just feel better listening to songs with more context.
I don't mind Irie's song either.
Lately I'm enjoying Marui songs like this one
Gotta add https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aGPmlnq1sjs to the opening list too!
