Hey guys! I just re-discovered one of my favorite anime from my childhood called Beyblade (remember!? that was so fun.) Anyways, I was searching through the OPs and I fell in love with one of the openings called "Off the Chain" and it made me think about my own preferences and what kind of music I love to see in anime. (Specifically the openings and endings)

If you are unfamiliar with the opening check it out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OdPoaVMDRk8

What do you love and what do you dislike?

For example, I love music in anime that seems very chill and almost out of the norm when it comes to general anime. Like that stuff in Samurai Champloo <3 LOVE IT. And the soundtrack for Soul Eater was great too.

Please share :3

The more bombastic and over the top the better. Whether it's an action series, slice of life, or softcore porn you gotta have a ridiculously over the top score at the start and end of every episode. If an anime's opening can't punch your balls off it's not trying hard enough!

GWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAR!

Anime openings that I love are always different. I feel like most animes just take a decent sounding song and say, "Eh, that works. Put an opening over it." Openings that try harder are my favorite.
Tenjou Tenge
Problem Children are Coming from Another World, aren't they?
K
Nyarko-san
Madoka Magica (most SHAFT openings, for that matter)
Haganai
Lucky Star (KyoAni always has good music)

My favorite endings? Same qualifications as above. Bonus points for evolving credits. Even if the budget is not as big for each ending, it tells me they put more focus on the music.
Shin Sekai Yori
Medaka Box season 1
Lucky Star
Inu x Boku SS

Samurai Champloo end theme is awesome. I just recently got the mp3 and I've been blasting it.

Upbeat ones.
Those slow-ish ones are boring. The kind that is most of Fairy Tail's endings.

no intro and no outro. They take up time and are annoying to skip. So fuck them, especially when they place it half way through (NARUTO!!)

This is my favorite ending music by FAR.

Always adds a sort of an emotional ending.

Fairy Tail - Glitter (Ending 11).

Something that veers from absolutely center-of-the-line standard J-pop.

Or really good licensing. I was a Delgados fan from way back, so the Gunslinger Girl intro was just GDLK.

NO MORE J-POP OP'S AND ENDINGS. I prefer it when an Op and END have meaning and actually look like work was put into them. Elfen lieds Op is a perfect example.

For me personally it really depends on the anime. For example if the show is basically an action/comedy then i would prefer rock or some kind of upbeat opening. On the other hand if it is depressing/sad i would go for a soft eerie opening.
