An awesome source of entertainment that's basically Japanese cartoons often inspired by manga, or Japanese comic-like novels. AND THEY KICKED ASS! :D
Seriously, half my life is just watching anime, and I almost love every one I see. And this list is celebrating THE 100TH ANNIVERSARY OF.....
Uh, canned bread? :P I don't know, I just wanted to make this list.
The rules are obvious. Only entries from anime I've seen, they have to be from anime, and they have to be FREAKING AWESOME SAUCE! ^__^ (That didn't even make sense.....)
So kick out the popcorn, soda, get comfortable, and enjoy! This is my Top 10 Anime Openings/Theme Songs!
#10. Soul Eater Season 1-Resonance.
Starting off this list is an awesome anime by the name of Soul Eater. And honestly, who DOESN'T KNOW THIS ANIME!?
I know it, my friends know it, my relatives know it, THAT ROCK OVER THERE KNOWS IT.
And as much as I hate to say it, (Sorry ShadowACS.) I loved this anime! It was funny, had good characters, and the theme song blew me away like it was a Poltergust 3,000!
The visuals are probably this songs best part. It's very impressive and the animation is top-notch! Also, the song itself is very epic and hard NOT to get stuck in your head. And combined with the pretty good lyrics, that's more than enough for this song to make it on the list.
Downside? Well, to be honest, I can't even think of any! This song is a perfect example of doing nothing wrong, at the same time not being, no offense guys, not the catchiest song I've heard.
But still, with it's impressive visuals, epic beat, and great lyrics, (Get ready to hear that a LOT.) Resonance makes #10 on this list.
#9. Chobits-Let Me Be With You.
Alright, I don't like being obvious with my choices, but DAMN if you don't find this song catchy, consider yourself not a human. And really, that's this songs strongest point, the song itself.
The animation's pretty good during the song, the lyrics are alright, but the song? Well, let's just say it's SO CATCHY! Seriously, THIS SONG WILL NEVER LEAVE YOUR HEAD!
And I'm the psychopath who thought the Sergeant Frog wasn't that catchy! o-O
I remember the anime itself being pretty funny, and is overall worth your time! But still, this is an anime OPENING list, not an anime review, so I won't go into much depth to the show here.
But in conclusion, the song's good. Like really good! Like, really really good! Like like, really REEEEAALLLLYYYY GOOD! ^_______^
I have got to get a life, :P Who knows, maybe they're on sale today! ;D
#8. Lucky Star-Motteke! Sailor Fuku!
Give my regards to Broadway. Yes, I liked this song. And you can't blame me either, because similar to Chobits, IT'S CATCHY AS HELL. But why this is better than Chobits, I have no idea at all.
Because that's what all professional Top 10 makers say! :D
Seriously though, it's not even AS catchy as Chobits, but I like this song way more. For one, the animation's a lot better than the Chobits opening, and I remember dancing to this song SO MUCH when I was around 12 years old.
Enough said. I liked a Lolita anime's opening. Let's move on before people laugh at me through a megaphone.
#7. Kirby-Right Back At Ya!
ALRIGHT I KNOW, THIS WASN'T EXACTLY AN ANIME, but it still counts as one! So be quiet meanie! :(
Anyways, this song is pretty self-explanatory. The animation is AWESOME, the song is catchy as hell, and although the lyrics aren't the BEST, it still gets on here just from pure nostalgia.
I remember watching this show EVERY SINGLE DAY as a kid, and I loved everything about it. The jokes were funny, the action was freaking GOD-TIER, and the animation was lively and spot-on!
Plus, here's another song that WILL NOT LEAVE YOUR HEAD! Because once it gets inside, it spreads like a parasite. And then, it becomes all that you can say! I remember a moment at school going like this-
My Teacher: "What's 6 times 47..... Jared! :D"
Me: KIRBY KIRBY KIRBY THAT'S A NAME YOU SHOULD KNOW! KIRBY KIRBY KIRBY HE'S THE STAR OF THE SHOW! HE'S MORE THAN YOU THINK, HE'S GOT MAXIMUM PINK! KIRBY KIRBY KIRBY'S THE ONE! ^___^
My Teacher: o-O
Yeah, that wasn't the BEST day of my life..... Let's just say whipping hurts just as much as you see in those old-days movies.
In conclusion, the Kirby opening is awesome. It had awesome animation, pretty decent lyrics, and an REALLY good climax. (That sounded wrong....)
Next entry, please.
Fanpop: No way! *Slaps Jared*
Me: OW! :(
Fanpop: TOTALBADASSTOTALBADASS! ^_____^
Me: *Burns Fanpop To A Crisp*
#6. Black Butler-Monochrome No Kiss.
Don't make fun of me just because the song has the word kiss in it. X____X
ANYWAYS...... I really liked this opening! Long story short, the animation was, as always on a list like this, REALLY good, the song was catchy, and the beginning of this song was EPIC.
I remember the anime being one of the best I'd ever seen, I'll be it dark, but still pretty funny at times! And Sebastian's catchphrase was always hilarious. ^___^
"I'm merely one hell of a butler."
Also, you just have to love how this anime is pretty dark, but still has good comedy and entertainment. I mean, it could just be with me, but I SWEAR majority of dark anime are BORING. They end up focusing WAY too hard on story and end up as bland.
In conclusion, this opening is very Avant-Garde! A bit spooky, but that's what makes it cool! It's nice to listen to, has great animation to support it, and is a very good example of what to do CORRECTLY in an anime theme song/opening.
Next entry. :)
I'm sorry, that's just a thing me and a friend of mine used to do on here. XD
#5. Ouran High School Host Club-Sakura Kiss.
TOO MANY OPENINGS WITH THE WORD KISS EW IT'S GROSS X_____X
R.I.P. Jared Nathaniel Potts. He died from an awesome song with the word kiss in it..... What the hell?
Anyways..... Sakura Kiss is a very unique one on this list. And not because the song really does anything new, but because it does everything so well!
The song's VERY catchy, has AMAZING animation, and is overall a very pleasant song to listen to!
I remember the anime being one of THE FUNNIEST DAMN ANIME EVER SPAWNED and I loved it! The anime had great memorable characters, a silly yet cool setup, and this SWEET opening to go with it.
And that's why it's on this list. :)
That and the, say it with me OHHC fans......
#4. Pokemon-The Johto Journeys.
THIS SONG WILL INVADE YOUR BRAIN AND TAKE OVER YOUR LIFE, IT'S THAT CATCHY.
Yeah, as you can tell, any song catchier than Chobits has got to be one HELL of a song.
It also has to be so irritatingly catchy you'd rather cream yourself with an electric toaster than get this song stuck in your head, and that's what this song is, catchy as hell.
Gee sound familiar? Yeah, I judge openings a lot on how much you want to listen to it.
Kind of. :P
Anyways, the song is just about being the very best and blah blah blah, (Blah!) and blah.
But it's JUST SO DAMN CATCHY! (I swear if somebody doesn't make a new word for catchy...)
With that awesome opening, cool lyrics, and Legendary beat, this makes #4 on this list. :)
(The reason I like this one more than the original is because it's catchier. I'm not even kidding. :P)
#3 Sailor Moon-Moonlight Densetsu.
DON'T SLAUGHTER ME PLEASE.
Yeah, as much as this anime sucked, (I AM SO DEAD.) I have to admit, the theme song was really cool! Seriously, it had little to no problems, and sounded amazing!
The animation was really good, (Are you dead yet from hearing that?) The song sounded amazing, and overall, it's a great song.
I also always found it hilarious how it sounds like little kids are singing this song. In fact, for all I know, little kids DID sing this song.
The opening had everything an anime fan would orgasm over, and even more that threw me off-guard when I criticized this anime first time watching it.
Seriously though, the show wasn't that good, at least in my eyes. Although I do remember Sailor Jupiter and Sailor Mars being REALLY hot, and the show was sort of silly, but in all honesty, I've seen a lot better.
The fan girls are going to stampede me for this. o-O
UH, THE OPENING WAS COOL, IT HAD AWESUM, AND WAS COOL, THE END. PLEZ DON'T KILL ME. :(
#2. Steins;Gate-Hacking To The Gate.
Alright, 3 things.
1. I didn't make an error there, the anime is actually called Steins;Gate, with a semicolon in the middle.
2. Yes, this ISN'T number one.
3. THIS OPENING KICKS ASS!
Seriously, this is one of the best anime openings I've ever seen in my life! It sounds *Insert compliments you've totally never heard before on this list* and was REALLY impressive!
I could honestly listen to this song 500 times and it would STILL sound just as awesome as t did the first time.
Not even joking, if you want to learn how to make a near PERFECT anime opening, look no further.
The animation during the song was incredible, the lyrics are amazing, and the song IS SO DAMN CATCHY that once you hear it for the first time, you'll NEVER want to listen to anything else.
Anyways, time for number 1! ^___^
Fanpop: But what about the recap, or the honorable mentions Jared?
Me: "....AND THAT was the day I hit Fanpop with a ski pole. The end. :D"
#1. Variable Geo Neo-We Survive.
HOLY S**T!! THIS IS AWESOME! ^_____^
Yes, here it is. The very REASON I made this list, this song.
Besides, what the heck do you THINK I'm listening to Einstein? Man, these Top 10 makers really need to get a life...
Anyways, this is as great as openings can get, at least in my opinion. It has NO FLAWS, and sounds absolutely extravagant! The beat's catchy as hell, not to mention epic, the lyrics are great, and it's my favorite anime opening ever. :)
SADLY though, the anime itself sucked hard. Turns out it was a s**tty hentai with a plot so aggravatingly terrible you'd rather watch an episode of Bonkers in double the speed!
And the saddest thing? THIS ANIME HAD SO MUCH DAMN POTENTIAL! The opening was SO F**KING AWESOME, and it throws crap in our face expecting us to like it!
In fact, I honestly think that all the money went into the opening, and when the show started, they were so bankrupt it's no wonder the show was worse than an old episode of The Simpsons.
The show wasn't funny, had a TERRIBLY confusing plot, and was unreasonably CRUEL!
Still though, it was all worth it JUST for the opening.
In conclusion, there's nothing at all that's new I can say about anime openings and lord knows I've used the word awesome in this article OVER 9,000 times so.... Yeah.
That's where I'm ending this article, on a giant middle finger.
Hope you enjoyed, and leave a comment below if you want on your favorite anime openings! ^___^
