I probably have about 50 favorite openings but I guess I'll go with:

- The Perfect Insider op/ Psycho Pass op 2 (can't choose between them, and they both have very peculiar visual styles)
- Mushishi's openings (they're not anything flashy but they're perfect in their own way)
- Durarara!! op 2
- Little Busters op 1
- Space Brothers op 7

(Whispers: Gintama op 13)

My soul, your beats (Angel Beats)
Oratorio The World God Only Knows
Hakuyoku no Seiyaku (Sekirei season 2)
Kūsō Mythology (Mirai Nikki)
This Game (No Game No Life)

Odd assortment, in no particular order. Also really has no bearing on whether I even liked the anime themselves all that much. Really quite ambivalent about No Game No Life, but god damn it has a good OP.

Also while I was making this list it was refreshing to revisit some old OP's I've liked a lot in the past. Sekirei in particular I had forgotten how much I enjoy both its OP's, but season 2 especially is pretty awesome.

Yuri!! on Ice I don't even like the song that much, but it's a perfect opening. I love the changes as the series progresses.


I also feel this way. Not sure it belongs on my top 5, but it is remarkable for being a song that I don't like at all on its own, but that worked so well with the animation and the feel of the show, that I liked watching it, and listening to it, every week when I watched the show (often I skip through OPs)


Paranoia Agent Gorgeous and creepy


It's been so long since I watched that that I forgot about it. But now that mention it, I recall it clearly and remember how entrancing it was, and how even though I binge-watched the show I watched the opening and was thoroughly fascinated by it.

Tank from Cowboy Bebop is probably the best OP ever. Besides that I always liked:

Barakamon
Kids on the Slope
Attack on Titan OP1
One Piece OP 10 (We Are)
Space Brothers OP1 (I love to Feel so Moon)

A few years ago I would watch My Neighbor Totoro with my daughter about once a week. That theme song got stuck in my head. I still hum it when I'm doing menial tasks like washing dishes or doing laundry.

Am I the only one that doesn't like Tank? Idk I guess it's just not my style of music.

I didn't like it when I was younger. It'd remind me of the Pink Panther theme and I'd just scoff at it. I like it now, but I'm also into jazz now, so it could just be taste in music.

I can't narrow it down to 5, so here's a few.

"Tank" - Cowboy Bebop
"Hacking to the Gate" - Steins;Gate
"Rise" - Ghost in the Shell SAC Second Gig
"Driver's High" - Great Teacher Onizuka (opening 1)
"Puzzle" - Welcome to the NHK
"Karma" - Phantom Requiem for the Phantom
"The Hero" - One Punch Man (I really tried not to include this, but it perfectly encapsulates everything that show is)
"Kogarashi Sentiment" - Monogatari Series: Second Season (The fourth opening with the Senjougahara X Kaiki duet)

Which opening, the Kalafina first opening song, or the Hiroyuki Sawano song &Z by SawanoHiroyuki[nZk]:mizuki? And which ending song? Just curious because I like the songs from that anime.

Good list. And awesome honorable mention. That song gets stuck in my head every time I hear it, and half of the time I see it mentioned.

Hmmm, going to have to work on my list for this.

With no particular order:

*Soul Eater- Resonance

*Ouran High School- Kiss Kiss Fall in Love (you didn't read that. It just started playing, complete with roses)

*Gintama- Tougenkyou Alien (if anyone one ever wanted to know what that show is like just show them the version where our heroes manage to fuck up their own opening)

*Anything with Gintama and DOES (Gintama has some damn good OPs and EDs)

*Battle Cry-Samurai Champloo
