This topic is locked from further discussion.

I know I'm a bit of a pushover when it comes to anime,but this time I would like to know the OP and ED,it's quite obvious to why every anime can be decent if they start it up with some and end with it

my best choice for OP could either go with

Lilium(Elfen Lied) [please be advised,that there's enough unintended graphics in it,be careful with this link]

or

Yuki -DRAMATIC(Honey and Clover)

or even this

for the ED ,I would like this as a part of my past anime experience

what's yours?

*UPDATE*

due to the massive amount of space used by these videos,there may be a chance that this thread will be a 56k(no slow Internet allowed)

Favorite Opening:

Favorite ending:

I also really like the opening to Fruits Basket:

The first ending to Case Closed was cool too.

#11 Edited by Smashbrossive50 (2861 posts) -

one more ED,but I have a problem everytime I find it,these "Spanish otakus" tried way too hard to put them all in the search results,so I refrain from providing it

the ED I'm talking about was K-ON! - Don't Say Lazy

Favorite Opening : "Hemisphere" - RahXephon

Favorite Ending: "Starless Night"- Nana

@Makhaidos: I feel Attack on Titan would've been way better if it was seinen. Something like Vagabond or Berserk. But since it's for kids/teenagers, the author toned it down and used shitty archetypal characters.

It's definitely not on the maturity level of Berserk, but I hardly think it's for kids. I never saw a little girl get digested in Pokemon.

im really fond of good anime. i dont think i could call myself a fan im afraid. not when set against the tremendous, monstrous, devastating obsession of those that do go by, fan, seem to suffer.

i do know enough to be able to say that no one will ever to be able to involve themselves in a conversation such as this with out an extreme bias. |// i also know that you are all tragically wrong because these are better than all before or to come.

i suppose, taking hypothetical bareness into account, this could be considered nsfw. maybe: tsuki no ie //|

Last Exile, Rahxephon, Welcome to the NHK, Death Note, D.Grayman, Monster all had great OP and ED theme songs.

For favorite OP, I'm honestly torn between Shingeki no Kyojin and Robotech.

It may be an American anime, but it's got a great intro and its probably the main thing that even got me into the genre in the first place.

As for ED, I'd probably have to go with Shingeki no Kyojin's second ending theme.

Yeah I just meant maybe like 12 or even 11 year olds. It just annoys me when something could've been great and it's toned down just so that they can reach a wider audience.

i realize that neither of these count for the topic, but because i can almost wedge them as relevant, ill always relish the opportunity to share them. caution, different warning this time, before clicking over. it has been said that in each separate case the following has changed lives. proceed at your own peril.

12 or 11 year olds watching Attack on Titan? No.

Maybe 17 or 16 at the lowest, but 12 or 11 is waaaay too low.

The show has a lot of gore, people being ripped apart, and just overall graphic so I don't see how kids that young would be the target audience. Just because they wanted to reach a wider audience doesn't make it bad either. In fact it helps the show because now they have a huge fanbase and probably more money to use.

I don't see any issue with letting a 12 year old watch it. The manga is serialized in a shounen magazine in which a large portion of their audience is children.

And no, Attack on Titan would've been better as a seinen manga. I mean imagine if something like Ichi the Killer was in a shounen magazine. It wouldn't even be the same thing. I read a bit of attack on titan and it seems pretty obvious to me that the author had to tone down what he was originally going for.

My favorite anime opening is currently Attack on Titan/Shingeki no Kyojin's "Guren no Yumiya" (the first opening).

As for an ending... IDK. I guess the ending I like the most that I can remember now is the Dangan Ronpa anime's ending, which I think is called Zetsubousei: Hero Chiryouyaku or something like that.

#32 Posted by Kats_RK (2079 posts) -

Best opening ever.

that indonesian cyborg kurochan is rather remarkable. it would be a feast of a spectacle if someone auditioning for unitedstatesian or uk idol / xfactor showed their prowess by performing that marvel.

your embed above reminds me. it would be a grave injustice to continue without the mention of cowboy beebop | flcl
