Death Note OP2 (What's Up, People?) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MAyAaJo8MYw)

December 30th, 2010, 12:50 AM
The weirdest and most random opening theme I've seen is:

The Magical Shopping Arcade of [I'm not going to try and spell it, since it would be horribly wrong.]

December 30th, 2010, 6:25 AM
犬夜叉 My Will (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iiwda8vqMe4&feature=related) - Ending 1 only tho i dont like any of the others. omg0sh i just found it on youtube and im dancing away!!

Wings Don't Cry
December 31st, 2010, 1:44 AM
For openings it would be a tie between One Piece OP 5 , (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=03P7F0ikGd4) the Onegai Teacher Opening (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=78fyNAKyJh4) and the Sengoku Basara 2 Opening. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l1V3LpRKwuU)

For endings it's the last ending of Hayate no Gotoku Season 1 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6nLrvrIGaag).

Higurashi No Naka Koro Ni (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nRtsIJXrhqc)'s op was Pretty much a perfect opening, song and content ~ nipah.

Death Note (http://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=1024863696992)'s first opening was amazing.

Shinrei Tantei Yakumo (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=khYOvmzNI0k) has a cool one, love the song and the animation effects are good.

Clannad (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P-zhIImKP5k) and Clannad ~ The After Story (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=siT-U2lSolY) are both good, prefer the 2nd song but overall the original Clannad opening slightly more awesome. Both of these are really pretty songs. :)

Black Lagoon (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kbc8l01GpZg), Yu Gi-Oh! (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IYfbPc02KR0), Angel Beats! (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u0x4gLO1-mQ) and Highschool Of The Boobs Dead (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ydmmPjW0RQ) all deserve a mention.

As for endings I can only remember the epic that is Clannad's Dango Daikazoku (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x4k6HWcf6jM) and Bleach's first ending, Life Is A Boat (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oX2gYCTRMmo).

December 31st, 2010, 5:31 PM
Here's an obscure one. I've loved both the opening (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DSjFRn0YukI) and the ending (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=40w1AzQidzc&feature=related) of Antique Bakery. They're catchy and look quite unique. =3

And as for one most find overrated, the first Bleach opening (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y3-mTHG0SAU). I don't care that it has nothing to do with the show, it was catchy and looked artsy and great.

I actually like most of the Bleach openings and endings. I don't watch it anymore, but I like checking back regularly to see new openings and endings. XD

Beck~ (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cqlROvI6LmM) I guess it's really rather simple... but I love it.

Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OM8ODecbuhA). So crazy and perfect. (You really must watch this anime if you haven't already.)

Digimon Savers 2nd opening and Dinosaur King Pterosauria Legends

January 9th, 2011, 5:48 AM
FMA have really great Openings, so does the Clannad ones.

Angel Beats! (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VwI9Uz6UXgk), Air TV (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YDTSvPyOuKw), Kanon (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ntA6sb51Uzc&feature=related) and Shakugan no Shana (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eBvpBCgiZ7M&feature=related) have good openings too.

January 9th, 2011, 9:59 PM
My favorite anime openings are Shuffle (Yu-Gi-Oh!), Precious Time, Glory Days (Yu-Gi-Oh! GX) and DTecno-life (Bleach).

January 10th, 2011, 11:56 AM
The opening to Gundam Wing, not only for nostalgias sake but also for the theme song, has got to be my favorite. FLCLs is cool too but I <3 the Pillows.

Bleach OP 3: Ichirin no Hana
Bleach OP 13 (?): Ranpu no Melody
And Amatsuki's opening, which I don't know the name of.

January 12th, 2011, 12:40 PM
My favourite OP would be Murder Princess Hikari Sasuhou and Bleach Ranbu no Melody. ^^

January 15th, 2011, 6:38 PM
Arakawa Under the Bridge (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HvyYgg0nCc4)scores my vote for favorite OP and ED of recent memory. Actually, the OP and ED were probably the main reason I decided to watch the show in the first place.

January 16th, 2011, 1:11 AM
My favorite OP would have to be from Ghost Hound. My favorite ending would be Vampire Knight. Kanon<3.

January 20th, 2011, 9:54 AM
Bakemonogatari ED - Really, this ED was the one that attracted me to this anime. Smooth animation, SUPER NICE SONG.

Fairy Tail OP 6 - After the last opening, this is definitely one if the best FT opening.

Amagami SS OP 2 - I prefer this one over the first opening.

Dragon Crisis OP - I don't like the anime much but.. this opening is win! (The song not animation)

For now, that's the only OP/ED sequence I'm impressed with.

January 20th, 2011, 10:16 AM
I really liked the opening to Kare Kano in Spanish. I just think its kinda sweet (don't judge me)

oh, and BLEACH had some nice ones too.

February 2nd, 2011, 12:42 AM
The Opening for Tenchi Universe
Third Opening for One Piece with Vic Mignonga
THe Inuyasha Endings Every heart and the one with Sesshomaru walking.
All Naruto Openings after the First one are awesome.
And finally the FMA openings are good.

February 2nd, 2011, 11:57 PM
The English version of Negima!? with 1000%SPARKING. Sakasama no Chou from Hell Girl is brilliant, and the first Inuyasha ending, My Will, got me liking Japanese music. ^^

Recently though, I have discovered Slayers, and almost all of it's endings and openings are awesome. Just look up Get Along, Breeze and Give A Reason; they're some of my favourite songs now.

February 3rd, 2011, 9:20 AM
my favorite anime opening and ending would have to be the one for vampire knight. so amazing.

February 9th, 2011, 11:53 AM
Cowboy Bebop takes both.



The Real Folk Blues:


One of the best animu ever has the best Opening, Ending and OST ever made.

Space Cowboy approves of this post.

And in second place only to Cowboy Bebop is the opening to King of Bandits Jing.
The opening rift is just so darn catchy.

February 12th, 2011, 1:04 AM
I ADORE all of the Bleach openings except one or two. Most notably:
After Dark - ?
Ichirin no Hana - ?
D'technolife - UVERworld
Rolling Star - YUI
Alones - Aqua Timez

February 12th, 2011, 7:57 AM
Death Note 2nd Opening is worth being mentioned !
GTO 1st Opening !

February 26th, 2011, 9:46 AM
Favorite Opening: Bleach Opening 1 (Asterisk by Orange Range)

Favorite Ending: Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood Ending 2 (Let It Out by Miho Fukuhara)
^^ it's a beautiful song. I love the meaning behind it.

February 27th, 2011, 7:04 AM
I think the opening to Level E (which is currently airing) would have to be my favourite, I get serious Roy Lichtenstein/Pop art vibes from it.


I adore the Fractale titles as well, very trippy and accompanied by a beautiful song.


February 27th, 2011, 6:24 PM
I really like the openings of Cardcaptor Sakura, Yu-Gi-Oh, Sailor Moon S, Fairy Tail, Maid-Sama, Death Note, Bleach, Angel Beats, are some of my favourite openings.

February 27th, 2011, 8:43 PM
Far and away my favorite opening is the first opening for Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood. I love the mix of acoustic and electric that they use, and the chorus has an addictive hook.

March 1st, 2011, 5:20 PM
Naruto Shippuden Op 6 (Sign)
Bleach Op 13 ( Melody of the Wild Dance)
Kuroshitsuji 2 op (Shiver)
Naruto Shippuden op 8 (Diver)

Cruel Angel's Thesis from Eva (Hate the series, love the opening), Tank! from Cowboy Bebop, or Inner Universe from GiTS: SAC.

March 30th, 2011, 6:34 PM
I LOVE Honey & Clover's opening by YUKI. But, that's kind of a cult classic. :/ I love all of Honey & Clover's OST, too.

Everyone Esplode Noaw

April 10th, 2011, 3:58 PM
OP2 of Soul Eater- "PAPERMOON"

That song really spoke to my soul, and even though when I first heard it I didn't know what it was about... I still felt like I understood. Then when I looked up the lyrics, and read them in English, I was spot on. ^-^

I did enjoy Gosick's Opening a lot recently, the one ending that sticks out in my head a lot would be a more recent one Gintama Season 5 - Samurai Heart.

June 14th, 2011, 6:56 PM
Probably my most favourite opening from anime would have to be My Soul, Your Beats from Angel Beats! It's just one of those rare openings which you can't skip.
