I think it is more a question of composer than anything else. I don't deny, however, that a very popular theme will have elements borrowed fprm it. But a couple of ED themes with the Seiyus singing the closing.

Welp, now I can't listen to Basket Case ever again.

As for the topic itself, it's to be expected that many openings are of the same genre since studios would pick what's popular and safe; music that's familiar to their fans.

That might be why, no matter what one would think about the show itself, Jojo ED songs are always praised.

Because really, who could ever hate Roundabout?

Is there any merit to this? Or am I just going crazy.... >_>


I don't believe so.

If you listen very closely, they all have different styles, even if the music is not to your liking. Looking for which composer is working on the anime soundtrack can help you detect the difference in sound.

Also, if you have spent many years studying and playing music like I have, then you'll know the differences, lol.

In some cases it is actually true. Musical groups can switch from series and use the exact same musical themes, such as the case with the group that did some music for the Fate series and Aldnoah.Zero. As far as sounding similar with copycat notes, it isn't all that bad. I have noticed recurring notes for shows like Shomin sample with new shows like Sansha Sanyou and Anne Happy.

Some do sound similar because, as someone already mentioned, they use VAs as groups or a certain VA solo.

Otherwise...well...it depends on the show. They don't all sound alike.

I don't think there is any commonality or sound the same to anime music. There are some serious big names in the industry. Maybe some genre's sound the same, the more generic shows...

Kiznaiver and Boom Boom Satellites? They are a group that goes back a VERY long time. The instant that first OP started, I knew who they were. Only that group can sound like that. Then you get into musical superstars like Kalafina with Aldnoah Zero and Madoka Magicka? Aldnoah was a musical masterpiece for battle scenes and everything.

Shall I dare say Attack on Titan?

Rewatching the 1st season of The Asterisk War I was reminded how great the ED was.
