    These anime openings are more like memes now, but what animes do you think have the best openings? What is the name of the actual song? By whom (You really don't need to know this)?

    I like both of Noragami's openings personally.

    Absolutely amazing. I get so many goosebumps each time, and I just feel so emotionally affected (in a good way) by it. It's so good and catchy. ;v;

    Sakura Wars TV Opening. Basically another version of their traditional Geki! Teikokukagekidan.

    Really upbeat and cheerful! And the effects in the opening are outstanding for its time. ;v;

            That's a good one ^

            I also like this one:

            This anime has a lot of great songs in it.

            I'm more of an ending theme lass, but my favorite intro is defintely Kumiko Noma's spiritual rendition of Lilium from Elfen Lied. I might get in trouble if I post it due to censorship these days, but the sensual, glamorous art is what makes it epic. The soprano, the Klimt references, the lyrics everything about it is profound.

                  Honestly, I do not have a favorite. However, I like Sono Chi no Sadame, One Punch, etc.

                  Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Blade Works' 2nd seasons's second opening was really good and is probably my favourite.

                  Actually I wanna give a mention to Kenichi: Strongest Disciple's second opening:



                  It's really awesome, and really fits for this anime. <33 I think it's another favourite along with Sakura Wars in terms of openings. ^^

                    Definitely a tie between Clannad Afterstory Opening and the original Clannad opening.
                    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=klUfRsd20gE

                    or

                    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7-LNGXNGdT4

                    mainly bc clannad was the first anime i ever finished. made me sob like a psyduckin baby. also the soundtrack for the anime in general is just, amazing. <3

                    edit: i couldn't get the youtube code to work.. if a mod or someone can edit to post to get it to work i would appreciate that, thank you!!

                        Attack on Titan's themes are pretty good. I also love Deadman Wonderland's main theme.
