What are some of your guys' favorite anime openings?

Here's one of mine from Fairy Tail, season 9:



<3 that piano.

I love many openings but there is one that deserves the first place.

As much as I dislike the show, I absolutely LOVE the openings for Mirai Nikki. They're great. Both of them. Then there are all of FMAB's openings. All excellent. Log Horizon has a good opening as well. One Piece's One Day and Fight Together are top tier ops. Bleach's Ranbu no Melody and Dtechnolife. Naruto's Sign, Diver and Lovers. Gintama's Donten, Shura and Sakura Mitsutsuki. And as mediocre the anime turned out to be, SnK's first OP was good too. Freezing's Color. Fate Zero's Oath Sign. Psycho Pass's Namae no nai Kaibutsu. Madoka Magica's magia.

All are my faves. :p some EDs mixed in there too, actually

The music Kalafina produces reminds me of ALI PROJECT, just to a lesser degree. Nonetheless, To The Beginning is my all-time favourite opening and watching Fate/Zero makes it all the more epic!

It's a really great OP and I like the editing was also greatly done! I also like the OP from Gintama "NANANANANANANANANANANANANANA".

I constantly go back and rewatch the fourth opening from Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood. Here is the full version of the song anyway.



Gurren Lagann and Code Geass have great openings as well.

I really like the opening for Cowboy Bebop. Music's very pleasing to the ears, and visuals are also pretty nice to look at; they're vibrant. Alongside that, another would be Mirai Nikki. d:

That is my favorite opening ever.

But tbh, there's a lot of good ones out there. I can't think of any atm tho.

Besides TTGL's which Judge Mandolore Shepard posted, i think my second favorite is Fairy Tail's 14 opening:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ejWTziE2YPA

I think FT has a lot of good ones. <3 I really liked this one too and I think this one gets the prize for weirdest. (spoilers if you haven't read/seen past the Phantom Lord arc)

Oh gosh, there are so many good ones. I'll just link one more ;; I liked the music for Hataraku Maou-sama's op.

I'd agree. FT had some great openings.


This OP is love at first sight, to be honest. I downloaded the song as soon as I could after watching this. So beautiful the vocals are. I'll edit this post with more. :D

Edit: This is the perfect OP to describe the series. The troll series lmao.



The one I heard most recently and have fallen in love with. Just amazing.



Now for something that is NOT Gintama haha.


I thought this was great as well!

Just came across this a while ago. Pretty nice. :)

Since I'm too lazy to pick out, I like all of the Naruto openings.

I liked all Pokemon openings in Japanese, but only to Battle Dimensions in English.

I love the Kuroko no Basket and Diamond no Ace openings.

That's all I can think of at the moment.

I love how Attack on Titan openings blend Japanese and German together.



I also like Puella Magi Madoka Magica's opening, just cos it's cute to me


Spoiler:
and if I'm allowed fan anime...

This one is very nostalgic, although I grew up with the dub, which is nowhere near as good as this...

There's so many openings that I like, but some of ones I like most are Date A Live's Date A Live, Sword Art Online's Crossing Field, Btooom's No Pain No Game, Mirai Nikki's Kuusou Mesorogiwi, Aoki Hagane no Arpeggio's Savior of Song, Mondaiji's Black+White, Kikou Shoujo wa Kizutsukanai's Anicca, Log Horizon's database and Soul Eater's Paper Moon.

I like pretty much any opening by LiSA, nano or Iori Nomizu. Also both of Linked Horizon's AOT openings, they're amazing

This is downright amazing. Orgasmic, in fact. Music, visuals. Just perfect. And I haven't even seen the anime yet.

Openings only? No one gives a ♥♥♥♥ about endings?

Here are some of my all-time favourites.

My childhood. Cos I can practically sing the whole song.


Inazuma Eleven has some of the best OPs in my all biased opinion.


Made me loved Galileo Galilei


Of course, as a Gintama fan... I had to.

Although I dropped Watamote almost right away haha the OP was pretty good. Also Anohana's OP will always be a favorite <3 The Gintama ones are sound pretty solid, I promise I will get to watching it eventually ;~;

Dw Seki we love endings! There's a thread here!

This one from an anime that just ended has grown on me :o The lyrics are kinda odd but w/e.


I also started watching Index and I realllyyy like its first opening:


edit: ok screw it while I like Index's first op better this one is also kinda catchy:

Any and all of the openings to the various series of Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei. They're all extremely catchy, sung by the cast of the show, and the accompanying animation is utterly messed-up to varying degrees:





I love the opening to Steins;Gate, too.

This. Watamote's opening's just fantastic. I love the lyrics, and the visuals too. I haven't watched it yet, either, but it's on my possibility list.

Kill la Kill's second opening's also amazing to me, sadly I can't post it...cursed youtube.



I love upbeat songs, and visuals with a lot of colour. TMOHS's second opening succeeds in that aspect to me. you could say with flying colours huehue
