Which is your favourite anime theme tune?
Posted 1/5/15
Just curious to find out what everyone's favourite OP song is. Recently. I decided to try and work out my favourite. I liked the theme for both A Certain Scientific Railgun, and Black Bullet. I thought that both of these just sounded rather gritty and memorible. However, when i suddenly remembered Black Paper Moon, i had my favourite there and then.

If we're talking about just the song itself... then Tokyo Ghoul's "Unravel" is a recent favorite of mine along with BTOOOM's "No Pain No Game" and Arpeggio's "Saviour of Song" c'mon Nano is awesome. Old favorites would be GITS: SAC's "Rise"

buuut... I've always refused to judge anime OPs by just music alone... I mean the animators made an effort to make an OP animation so I'm gonna consider it along with how well it goes with the song!

With that in mind the OPs that I can think of right now that's just so good IMO would be:

Record of Lodoss War: Chronicles of the Heroic Knight - Kiseki no Umi is a good song that gives this OP an epic feel (whoa finally a video of this OP with better resolution hooray to new uploads)
Druaga no Tou: Sword of Uruk - Questions? is a fun song accompanied by a fun OP perfect combination! tip: Druaga no Tou is a fantasy anime so this OP is just pure fun and unrelated
Jojo's Bizarre Adventure - again JoJo ~Sono Chi no Sadame~ is just a perfect fit for the OP JOOOOOOOOOOOOOOJO!
Kannagi - catchy song with well animated "idol themed" OP... tip: Kannagi is not an idol anime
Monogatari retro OP - first off the song was intentionally subpar but it's there to give a complete retro karaoke feel complete with retro visuals(and retro subs but that is the subber's work lol)

I would have linked Tokyo Ghoul and some other more series OP too but YT likes to take them down =/

Would definitely have to be Broken Blade's opening. So beautiful!

Just songs, and not the mix of the song and animation, right?
I have a good set of OPs I love, so I don't really have a number 1 favorite I guess.
Tho, first one I considered my favorite a couple years ago, and still love:
ClariS - Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake Ga Nai - Irony

And one I'm currently extremely hooked on:
Waka, Fūri, Sunao (from STAR☆ANIS) - Aikatsu - Diamond Happy
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ndUr_tCHYy0
My favorite type of music also depends highly on my mood, so there's that too tho.

it's a pretty tough choice to pick just 1 anime OP that one likes above all others, but.. there are ones that just click sometimes. I think for me it's the first OP for Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood: Again by Yui

Ao no Exorcist ending song. I think it's the second season ending?

Darker Than Black fighting scenes are so bad ass with this song:

Some more OPs that I remembered:

Last Exile - Cloud Age Symphony gives this OP a good epic steam punk adventure feel
ef: A Tale of Memories english version - one of the most unique OPs IMO and Euphoric Field fits this really well
ef: A Tale of Memories final japanese version - pretty much the same as the english version... this is the final version that comes in the last episode with changed scenes(just need to pay attention to see the difference)

I think Inuyasha and Nana had some of the best OP and ED in the anime world

I personally love Arpeggio of Blue Steel's opening theme and ending theme.

Opening theme: http://youtu.be/D2uqpqrYmMY nano ft. MY FIRST STORY - Savior of Song

Ending theme: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nrwoPgYNoUY Trident - ブルー・フィールド

Can't find a full version of the ending track but it's about 3mins 55 secs long.
