Favorite Openings


3. Charlotte
(Bravely You)

Charlotte's opening does everything right, but nothing spectacular. The song itself is extremely pleasant, with a feeling distinctly reminiscent of the openings for other Key works. The visuals are also quite mesmerizing, with extremely interesting, whimsical, and almost "psychedelic" parts to them. The vocals are well done as well, with some notes almost "drawing" you into the melody like a vacuum - particularly toward the end.

2. School-Live!
(Friend Shitai)

An extremely catchy song. I can't go into too much detail as to why this opening is so high, but it's intimately connected to the show itself. I'd say that if you haven't seen the first episode yet, then I highly recommend it. Afterward, one might understand why it is placed here. I suppose you could compare it to "Connect" in terms of it's function as an opening.

1. Himouto! Umaru-chan
(Kakusinteki☆Metamaruphose!)

Surprisingly, I personally think this opening is pure genius. The song almost evokes the feeling of an "otaku march" for lack of a better term. This is reinforced by certain aspects of the music (such as the beat and the use of fifths near the beginning part), and also in the visuals (such as the posture of Umaru as she stands upon the show title). Now, I'm not very good at musical analysis (so correct me if i'm wrong), but the song itself also seems to adhere to rounded binary form. If not, then at the very least, it has a clear "contrasting middle" when it abruptly switches to the elegant style of a waltz to represent Umaru's public persona. It then returns back to end on the same "otaku march" it started on. This form itself serves as a symbol for Umaru's character. She wakes up in Otaku mode, goes to school in elegant mode, and returns home to Otaku moder. Her life is in rounded binary form, and the music matches that lifestyle as well. For these reasons, I honestly find this opening to be utterly brilliant.

Favorite Endings


3. Non Non Biyori
(Okaeri)

Another charming ending for this season. I quite like how they get the voice actresses to sing the ending. It really adds to the sentimental value for me personally.

2. Miss Monochrome the Animation 2
(Step by Step)

Originally, I didn't like this ending, but it has grown on me immensely over time. I really like the end of the song when she raises her arms in the air and utters the titular phrase.

1. School-Live! Episode 4
(We Took Each Other's Hand)

To be honest, I find the normal ending for School-Live to be somewhat forgettable, but the ending for episode 4 was absolutely amazing. Again, I can't go too much into why. I can only recommend people to watch it for themselves.
