Time to cut even more time into my homework period. Apparently, time management doesn’t exist in my dictionary. Anyhow, I’ve being watching quite a few series this season (in fact, I’ve probably hit a personal record for the most amount of anime watched at a time), which inspired me to write this post. That, and the fact that I need something to meet my quota due in 4 days. It must be the spring fever or something, but those anime producers seriously came up with quite a few amazing OP this season. The following is my list of the best OP’s I’ve seen, in terms of initial impression left for me, and for the purpose of this post the title of each series is linked to the corresponding youtube video…if I don’t fail to link it correctly.
Yup, you heard me right. Disagree with me? Bite me. No, please don’t take that literally. I placed this in the 5th place because it simply didn’t have a whole lot of impression on me. Granted, the song is good and the animation is fluid, but that’s about it. Still, considering all the OP I’ve seen so far, 5th is pretty high on the chart.
This one was actually kind of hard for me, because I really liked the OP. However, after considering the remainder of the list, I thought that this is a fitting place. Gonzo did a great job on this series, and the OP is very nice. Gokudou band + great song = win. Although that’s not the only thing this series won lol.
Although I really don’t have a high opinion of the Nanoha series, I have to say this is one of the best OP I’ve ever seen…that I remember seeing lol. It’s catchy, the animation blended perfectly with the music, pretty gorgeous designs, and the tv version is so much better than the full version in my opinion. Definitely worth a look, even if you hate Nanoha completely.
Chiaki Ishikawa is an absolutely wonderful singer, and this song is really brought to light by her talent. The biggest impact is obviously the song itself, but the animation is also pretty fluid and shows certain possibilities that this show could bring. The two suspenses work together to form the 2nd place on my top list. Good stuff, a must hear.
Whew, we are finally here. I’m dying from all those images and hyper-linking. This is the last one, so if you could kindly cue some drum-roll inside your head, it’d be much appreciated. And the winner is…
1. Lucky ☆ Star
Duh. In my previous post (if it ever gets put on the main site *me stares at Darren*) as well as in the forums I stated how much I loved the OP. Saying that I’ve watched it 50 times now would be no exaggeration. Kinda got tired of it from watching it non-stop, but I still love it for what it is, which is the best OP since ever. This is one OP you cannot possibly miss out in your entire life, so watch it NOW if you havn’t already went blind from replaying it 50 times.
My god this has to be the most troublesome post on anything I’ve ever written. I’m dead tired now. Going to finish my homework now and rest in peace. Hopefully everything worked out fine so I won’t have to come back and fix it from heaven. Ugh, homework…
