My top 10 favourite anime openings

by JayTaku

I love anime openings (I have no life), and I'm going to now make a list of my favourites and explain why I love them so much.

10. Durarara- Complication by ROOKiEZ is PUNK'D

I just absolutely adore this opening, in my opinion it is much better than the first opening. The character shots, while not creative, do show us what these characters are like, and of course Shizuo is there lifting heavy objects, as he usually does. Also this song is just incredibly catchy and I love it, but in my opinion this is my favourite song by ROOKiEZ is PUNK'D, and my favourite Durarara opening.

9. Kuroko No Basket- Other Self by GRANDRODEO

This is just one of those openings where it just gets you hyped every time, in my case anyway. And this opening just makes me want to play some basketball, which is good because I love basketball. My favourite shot has to be at the beginning when Kuroko is standing in front of the massive audience and he just stands there, until they all start to cheer and then he does as well.

8. Gintama- I Wanna Be by SPYAIR

A lot of people I know don't like this opening because they say that it doesn't fit with Gintama's "mood" or whatever you would call it. But in my opinion this opening achieves what I think it was trying to achieve, to get you emotional. This was Gintama's last opening before it ended, and it made me almost tear up the last time I heard it, and for that it is now one of my favourites. Damn I'm gonna miss Gintama.

7. Samurai Champloo- Battle Cry by Nujabes

God I love the vibe this opening gives off, the visuals are great, the song is great, and literally any of these shots could be your wallpaper. But the character shots are great, I love Mugen's a lot it shows off his personality and I love his pose. Overall this is one of the most unique anime openings on this list.

6. Fullmetal Alchemist- Rewrite by ASIAN KUNG-FU GENERATION

The animation and song is what makes this opening one of the best in my opinion. The storytelling isn't as good as other OPs, but the animation is so lively and it really just makes me want to watch the original FMA again, even though I prefer brotherhood.

5. Naruto- Kaze by Yamazaru

The best and most underrated Naruto opening in my opinion. I can't go into detail with the reason I love this opening, because I just love it, there is no reason. But who agrees that Might Guy is just awesome.

4. Gurren Lagann- Sorairo Days by Shoko Nakagawa

Back in the day this anime opening was my shit, and it still is my shit. This opening (like the show itself) is completely over the top and I love it. Also can we take a moment to respect how much of a great character Kamina is, but this stays as one of my favourites, and it is from my favourite anime too.

3. Bleach- Asterisk by ORANGE RANGE

This reminds me of a time when Bleach was good, before I ended it up dropping it. But seriously this opening is just great. The colours are so vibrant in some shots, and I love the camera movements. The credits aren't just bland either, this song also is just one that makes me sing along everytime.

2. Ao No Exorcist- CORE PRIDE by UVERworld

UVERworld is great and they are my favourite Japanese band, and this my favourite one out of all of their songs. All of Blue Exorcist's openings are great, but this one is just amazing

1. Gintama- Sakura Mitsutsuki by SPYAIR

This song, just take my advice and listen to it. Gintama probably has the best openings out of all of the shounen anime I have watched. SPYAIR really do make the best Gintama openings, and that's why two of them are on this list. This is one the more serious Gintama openings and I think the visuals are beautiful, I love the use of the blossoms of a transition, and I love the scene of Gintoki running with that beautiful chorus.
