Top OP’s Ever – Part 1 of 3 (or 4)

Everyone has a list of OPs (or I made that up). This is MINE.

I used to ALWAYS skip the OPs to anime. Then I wised up and started watching them. If I don’t like an OP, then I’ll skip it of course, but if I like one, well obviously I’ll watch it. It’s because of OPs and EDs really that I cam to know Chatmonchy, greatest band ever.

So here are OP’s of all time (that I like anyway). I should point out that if I start an anime after I post this, and the OP is the best ever, it’s not going to make the list…no way in hell I’m editing every single number to plug it in somewhere.

I base them on the animation (lightly), the music (heavily), and how it fits the mold of the anime it opens (middle-ly). Here’s how the layout will go:

Song Rank. Anime Title – Band/Singer Name: Song Name

You got that? Not to hard to understand really. Anyway, I may write something about the song under the video (If I can find the video), I also may not. If I get any song names wrong or something, feel free to correct me and call me a huge idiot.

44. Fullmetal Alchemist OP 4 – Asian Kung Fu Generation: Rewrite

43. Chobits – Round Table ft. Nino: Let Me Be With You

People will look to me and ask, “Why do you like this song? Are you a woman?” and I will whisper…..”No.”

42. Trigun – Tsuneo Imahori: Kaze Wa Mirai ni Fuku

Awesome OP. Just awesome. Trigun ruled.

41. Bokusatsu Tenshido Dokuro-Chan – Saeko Chiba: Bokusatsu Tenshido Dokuro-Chan

This has got to be the funniest show/OP ever made. It was wayyyyy too short though (the anime not the OP). I wish it was longer. Even if you hate anime you would think this show was fucking hilarious (says me).

40. Kemeko Deluxe! – Featured Seiyu: Kemeko Deluxe? (not really sure on the name)

A lot of the lyrics make no sense, or have nothing to do with the actual anime: “Jesus Jesus Jesus kami-sama.” (kami-sama means God in case you aren’t aware). This is one of the reasons why it’s great. Also, the seiyu are singing, which I always like for some reason.

39. Negima!? – Featured Seiyu: 1000% SPARKLING!

Once again we have Shaft doing it’s thing as far as OPs are concerned. Cool animation does a good job here, along with the great song. The actual song varies episode to episode, as different seiyu sing parts each time. This is kind of like the OP for the original Mahou Sensei Negima, where different variations of the song were used throughout the show. I like.

38. xxxHOliC – Suga Shikao: 19sai

Compared to others already put up, nothing really stands out about this OP, but for some reason I like it a lot. So fuck you.

37. Kamisama Kazoku – Mai Mizuhashi: Brand New Morning

What can I say? The song is great. And the animation with the black silhouettes with the colored lips in the beginning is great. The beginning of this OP is what got it on the list though. I wish the quality of this video didn’t suck, but since my lazy ass didn’t upload shit, I can’t really complain.

Another note: I saw this OP and thought….”this show looks dumb.” I later watched the show, and loved it.

36. Naruto – GO!!!: Fighting Dreamers

I love the song even though Naruto is kinda gay. I mean I loved it at first…..but the fillers killed this series. Plus its fucking everywhere……enough. Great vid though.

35. Bleach – The Beat Crusaders:TONIGHT! TONIGHT! TONIGHT!

Let me first point out that the Beat Crusaders suck, but I love this OP. I like the animation, and I like the song (well, I like all the songs on this list, but you get the idea).

Well that ends the first of several posts, which I think will be around three, but now I might split it up into 4. Who knows?

…..God damn I hope I numbered everything correctly.

Asura Cryin’ 4 – Takatsuki or Misao???

Before I go into the fact that this series gets better every episode, and that this episode was awesome as well, I would like to shortly state that:

I can’t decide who I like better, Takatsuki or Misao. Takatsuki has different colored eyes, her seemingly split personality, and the fact that she can catch and melt bullets all equate to her ruling. That being said, Misao is an awesome cool ghost who has arguably the best lines in the show. Let’s look at the facts:

Nothing too weird here.

Their hands accidentally touch. In anime, this means something awkward is going to happen.

As the scene continues, Misao enters:

Guess who's in the pot?

Guess who's in the pot? I'll give you a hint.....MISAO.

GET IT? PUN.

GET IT? PUN.

At this point, it seems to be between Takatsuki’s moe (sort of) and Misao’s incredibly awesome sense of humor (puns are the best, the dumber the better). I give it up to Misao, because she rules.

Also, this scene was great:

Misao throws her fists RIGHT THROUGH HIS SKULL! But since she's a ghost they don't do anything. That's just a great scene.

As for this episode, it contained ample humor and awesomeness. Keep in mind that they are currently all in school, and all of these events are school oriented:

If I wanted to do a screen shot of all the moments that were awesome it would be easier to just post the episode.

Um, yea, this episode ruled.

The only bad thing I can say about this show is that the animation is not that great during one scene when they were talking about familiars. I mean, the eyes looked all weird and screwed up and their faces  poorly drawn. Maybe it’ the style, but I only noticed it this episode, at that one scene. Either way, the animation is usually great in my opinion.

RANDOM ASS SIDE NOTE: We (I) talked about PUNS this post. Here is a great joke I made up on the golf course once when it was incredibly hot out and I was delirious:

“What do you call a dinosaur with wings that can’t fly?”

Answer?

“A pterrible-dactlyl!”

I laughed really fuckin hard at that….I made up a bunch of other ones as did Mike “Oballer” O’Brien, whom I worked with, and also got fucked over by New Britain’s budget cuts. He refused to join my awesome loincloth gang because he’s not all man.

TOP TEN FORTY PLUS OPs later this evening. Bye.

Phantom 5 – Return of the Horny Lady

That’s right, the horny lady who likes to state the obvious, whom I talked about briefly in the other review I did is back with a vengeance. She appears to be determined to have Zwei as her little “pleasure toy” if you will. Just look at all of the hints she drops:

She lets Zwei know that she's not tied down by a man or a family.

She let's Zwei know that she's got some tits, and isn't afraid to use them.

She tries to loosen up Zwei's trouser snake with some alcoholic indugences.

She wants Zwei to "keep her company" which of course means zoom zoom in her boom boom.

Uh ohhhh! You're all alonneeee together!!

I would like to point out that after the last screenshot, sexy jazz music starts playing. So…do they get down and dirty and do the nasty? Nope. Looks like this whore is just a tease.

In other news, Zwei kills a women and child, which really grinds my gears (I think he’s going to lose it in the end because of this…that’s just a guess though). Too bad this show rules and assassins kick serious ass, so I can’t really be mad at something like that. I enjoy watching this show. I’m not going to say that it’s awesome and the best show ever, but I think it’s good. This episode was a lot more realistic than any of the others (ie, the assasination were actually stealthy and not a gunfight in front of a mall in broad daylight). That’s all for now, until I put up the first in a serious of three posts tonight at some point.
