Your favorite anime opening

Unread postby SeruraRenge » May 28th, 2008, 3:02 am

Self-explanatory, really. What was your favorite opening in an anime. Could be for the song, the video, whatever made it your favorite. YT links to the opening help for those who haven't seen it.


Mine will always be this. Words cannot express the warm feeling this series gives to my dark, cruel, non-existent heart.



well, that and this

uhh, to those who posted before me, mind if you all place those embedded youtube players in spoiler tags? not because it's actually a spoiler but just to save space. It's really a pain to scroll down... Just if you want to though.

Opening themes? the ones liked the most were:
  • sola
  • Higurashi (both seasons)
  • RAVE (both seasons)
  • Utawarerumono

Although this doesn't count, Ever17's opening theme as well.

Some that quickly came to mind (though some were already mentioned):

    Tokyo Majin Gakuen Kenpuchou Tou
    Last Exile (tho ending rocks more)
    Overman King Gainer (when I first saw the intro I was like wtf, dancing mechas? :D it's great really)
    Higurashi (1st season)
    Sayanora Zetsubou Sensei (both seasons)
    F/SN (tho game intros pwn more)
    Ef - a Tale of Memories (game op pwns too)


Note to shelf: should take more note of good intros/outros, you tend to forget about them otherwise.

How many seasons are there?? I think there's only one season, but 2 openings. Yea, i agree... Rave's op are awesome !! Prefer the 1st one though... The 1st ending was also sweet, while the 2nd one need only 30 seconds to listen to before brought me to sleep.

oh, one season then. I automatically think that it's a new season whenever an opening / ending theme changes.

Disillusion (F/SN), both game and anime versions.

EDIT: Also, the Kyouran Kazoku Nikki OP, and all the Kyouran Kazoku Nikki ED's. 'Cause Kyouka is that cool. Well, and the other members of the cast are pretty cool, too.

THIS is the BESTEST of teh BEST introzs EVAR!! (of course I'm lying here, the intro is shit.... the music not so much)

Too bad for the anime, which is pretty nice.

I think mine would definitely be the song in the beginning.. It just makes me all alert at times and all excited.. Every anime has a trademark song and feel and that is what I like.. I definitely love Samurai X..
I love playing games on my computer

BERSERK

I dunno why, but this intro just stuck to me and, even though I watched the anime a long time ago, can't seem forget it. Catchy music and good animation and GREAT anime (I still think the manga is better, but the anime rocks too!).

For the full-length music, here is the link:

Obviously it's not animated with cool Berserk stuff, but it's the intro's music. It's so full of engrish and mangled words but.... I just don't know why I like it! :lol:
