So, lurking the Internet I found the something that might interest some of you. Although the video compilation is 3 years old (from time of post) it still serves as a... foundation to what really goes on in the minds of animators.

Watch the video and see if you've ever noticed any of the "openings."





The spoiler contains all the animes used to make the video.

It's not surprising to see so many similarities between anime openings in my opinion. My interpretation of it is that they want to show they're capable of animating the basics before you get into anything deeper than that.

Although, sometimes this isn't the case. We always see off model moments regardless and everyone wants their opening to be shiny and attention grabbing, so why not stick with the classic set-ups?

The music was hilarious though.

Dramatic head turns are very important in anime openings. I also noticed ALOT of Strawberry Panic, now excuse me while i go watch a new yuri.

I noticed that almost every show has a moment where the main character looks dramatically into the wind

I once heard someone say one of the reasons they aren't fond of anime is because the openings contain spoilers and sadly with some anime I've see that to be true
I've found that with Fairy Tail for example I don't really like watching the openings before watching the story arc because it gives small details away like who fights who, which sure may not be the biggest deal but I don't like it
