Well, here is part 2 of the list that is compiled of all of my favorite OPs. Note that OPs are only eligible if I watched the series. The OP awesome factor will be steadily going up as I move down the lines to my favorite OP (which in undeniably the best one ever). In case you haven’t seen the first post, here it is.
Quick Recap: 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
Let’s get the show rolling with what should be number
34. Ichigo 100% – Dream: Shine of Voice
This song is great, it’s got that sweet disco feel (kind of), not to mention strawberries. The ending of this series was good, but U was disappointing with the main characters choice of girl (which I had to read the end of the manga to figure out who it was).
33. Inuyasha OP1 – V6: Change the World
Why do I like this OP? Mainly the song: “I WANT TO CHAAANNGEE THE WORRLDD da da da-da da-da daaa da-da.” Yea…..my singing via text is great.
32. Devil May Cry – Rungran: D.V.C.
Whoops, I forgot about this one, so now I have to EDIT ALLL OF THE RANKINGS. GREAT. This OP rules that’s all.
31. Blood + OP3 – Uverworld: Colors of the Heart
Undeniably great animation coupled with an awesome song makes this OP a bangout. Especially the first part where she has the sword and all of her clothes is blowing. I love the sketchiness.
30. Elfen Lied – Kumiko Noma: Lilium
Certainly a unique OP. Opera music and awesome artwork makes this a great OP in my opinion. I mean, sure it’s number 31, but that’s out of hundreds of OPs don’t forget.
29. Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu – Himemiya Miran & Chocolate Rockers: Tomadoi Bitter Tune
The beginning of this OP had me right away. It had a great song and I liked the computer/photo-shop sort of style they used. The clicks of the mouse also match the beat which is great. It’s a great show also.
28. Bleach OP5 – Yui: Rolling Star
What can I say……Yui is great.
27. Gantz – Rip Slyme: Super Shooter
They could have EASILY made Gantz a continuous anime, like Bleach or something. They could have had some pretty sick filler arcs even. But they didn’t. Instead, they butchered the manga with a shitty ending to this series. Gantz Manga >>>>> Gantz Anime. Nevertheless, this OP was sick.
26. Neon Genesis Evangelion – Yoko Takahashi: Zankoku na Tenshi no Te-ze
This is like, one of the most famous OPs ever. It’s phenomenal. If I had any sense, I should be putting it up a lot higher. Too bad sense is something I rarely like to make. The song is what makes this a great OP.
25. K-ON! – Featured Seiyu: Cagayake! Girls
This song has been stuck in my head for the past week. It’s just great.
24. Bleach OP6 – Aqua Timez: Alones
I was obsessed with this OP when it came out. Then, I heard it again, and I realized that it still kicks ass. Bleach does it again.
That’s it for now. Two more entries to go in this list. The shit’s about to hit the fan.
