Anime Openings

14 JAN

First blog post for the win!

Okay, so I have decided to talk about some of my favorite anime openings. I think that every fan looks at the opening as a way to see how the rest of anime is going to be and that's my mind-set as well. A crappy opening=okay anime. My logic is great right? Some of my favorite openings have got to be the one from (click on the names, I put linksin the names just for you XD) Jyu-Oh-Sei, the first Code Geass opening (I'm listening to it as I type!), pretty much every One Piece opening, Loveless opening, and the Nabari no Ou opening. Granted, these are only a few but the rest I'll talk about later. I love the Jyu-Oh-Sei opening because of how it has that type of rap/r'n'b feel to it and I've never herd that before in a Japanese song before. If you've seen the Code Geass opening, then it's pretty self-expxlanatory why I like it right? Well in case you don't, the whole song is just amazing. The beat, lyrics, band--just everything. The One Piece openings that I specifically love are the 6th, 8th, 9th, 12th, and the 5th. As for Loveless, this was my first yaoi opening and I remember first hearing the opening and thinking 'Oh my god, this is the best thing in the universe!! *mindless jabber*' The art in the opening was really interesting to me as well; the transitions between each scene were awesome. Last but not least in the slightless, Nabari no Ou. I just finished watching this series and each time I hear the opening, it makes me want to start dancing like a mad person which is bad considering I like to listen to it on my bus home from school. Dancing on the bus is not such a good idea *sweatdrop*. I do havemany more favorite openings but I'll stick to those five ones right now! Maybe I'll make another list later....*ponders* Well, that's all I have to say for now concerning my beloved japanese music so...

Ja ne!

EDIT: I found this hilarious video on youtube called 'Every Anime Opening Ever Made' and it has pretty much all of the anime opening stereotypes with the typical up-beat techno-y song! Here it is!

I agree, the one on Jyu oh Sei is completely epic. I downloaded it, I listen to it before I go to sleep....It just has a aura of epicness to it. I also loved the ending theme to the series (well, the start of the song, the middle was ok, and the end once again epic). I has this sort of finality and expectancy in it, like: "this is only the beginning"

Ah, sweet love....

I'm not sure how much I agree with the other openings, they seemed nice, but not the best, though I suppose that that's just a difference in opinion. That, And I procrastinate against One Piece. That show has ruined lives, Ive seen it with my own two eyes *shiver*

I like the Black cat opening because of how epic it starts, the Vampire knight openings because they are so dark and mysteriously cool

I also adore the first Naruto ending, and the first Naruto Shippuuden Opening

I actually think my favorite opening song is Jyu Oh Sei, though. Pure Wonderment...
