The Top Ten
My favorite anime and anime opening of all time. The plot centers around 7 masters and 7 servants respectively who have been summoned in order to win the war for the Holy Grail. This anime is extraordinarily dark. This anime is the predecessor to Fate/Stay night, Fate/Stay night unlimited blade works, and Fate/Stay night heaven's feel. This anime makes all of those sequels make it look like they were made for kids. The anime may take a bit of episodes to get interesting, but once it does it's worth the wait. The full anime is on Netflix, including Fate/Stay night Unlimited blade works. It may get confusing in which order to watch them, but I'll try to explain. It works like this. First is Fate/Zero. Then, there are three different routes on story. The fate,unlimited blade works, and heaven's feel route. Heaven's feel route is the darkest and best route of them all and it feels like a true sequel to this magnificent anime. For age recommendation I would say 14+. The show isn't particarily bad in violence, really. But, when there is a sadist who hunts down children in horrific ways, then yeah I wouldn't let children watch it. You are missing out if you haven't seen this. And this show is great in English dub, so watch it that way. And Brave Shine does not hold a candle to To The Beginning.
The second and third season was meh in storytelling, while the first season was the best. The English dub is epic. Story? Well...The story is about a pervert named Issei who wants to have sex with a girl in highschool. One day, a girl named Yuma finds him and tells him she wants to be his girlfriend. They have a great time together, until Yuma reveals to Issei that she is a fallen angel. She stabs Issei with a spear made of light half naked. Iseei dyes, but then is reborn into a devil into Rias Gremory's household. That's just the first episode, so I don't consider it a spoiler. The show has a surplus of nudity and sexual innuendos. While, you can watch the show without nudity censored, it's the innuendos that make this show not for children, that and the satanic plot. The openings are epic though, the first one and the third one stand out the most. But, I chose the third season opening becuase it's just better than the third. The opening is one of the best openings of all time. For age recommendation I would say 18+ definitely. If you like Harem Anime, this dream will become a dream come true.
Despite the awful Netflix remake, the show's popularity is still intact. This Anime is so popular, that if you haven't heard of the show you have literally been living under a rock. Death Note is one of the best Anime of all time like top 10 material. The opening is epic. It shows how Light sees the world. The plot follows highschool Ligh Yagami. Light is a genius who excels in grades and intellect. Light one day finds a notebook that has dropped from the sky, the Death Note. Light reads the instructions and walks home. As he walks home he sees a girl being harassed by some bikers. Light writes down their names in the notebook, and then the bikers are run over by a truck. Light sees that the Death Note is real and dangerous. Light develops a God Complex, as he murders criminals on the news worldwide. He meets Ryuk the demon like creature who dropped his ( Ryuk) notebook. He looks at the Death Note and sees the pages and pages of criminals who have died due to the Death Note. He laughs and tells Light the rules of the Death note. Light claims that he will become God. Ryuk trembles, which just shows how much of a monster Light has become. The next day, Light has assumed the persona of Kira, a news report airs which shows L. L reveals his name, and Light desperately tries to write his name in the Death Note. Light kills L. But then, a report on theTv shows up, revealing that the L on T.V. was a fake, and that now L is investigating in Kira. L becomes Light's best and worst enemy and his rival. The show is epic. For age recommendation I would say 14+. There isn't really much blood in the whole series, except for the opening. The show stays legendary until episode 25 or 26. After that, nothing becomes interesting anymore, even though the show is supposed to end on episode 37. When you watch it, you will know what I mean. Great show and a must watch. You can find the show in HD on Netflix.
What can I say about this anime. Beautiful, tragic, emotional. Elfen lied is a title that not everyone has seen, but the majority has. The opening is nothing I have ever seen before in Anime. The lyrics are in Latin, and the background resembles a famous painting. I will say something this show is rated as one of the top ten most gory Anime of all time, so if you can't watch gore in an anime you should go to the next title, but I would make an exception for this title. This has one of the best stories I have seen to date in any Anime. The plot follows a woman named Lucy who has just escaped from a test facility for Dyclonius, an Alien race with horns, in true gory fashion, Christ the episodes starts with the picture of a severed hand. She makes it out, but then her helmet is shot at and she falls down into the ocean. She wakes up the next day, a blank slate with no memories. Two kind people bring her into their household, Koda or Kouta and the cousin. The show has her personalities always changing from Lucy to Nyu. That's all I can say without spoiling anything. I don't want to brag or anything, but I watched Elfen Lied without crying, I must be a sociopath or something becuase everyone is supposed to cry when watching this, it's beautiful. Anyway, your opinions of Lucy will always be fluctuating. I know it did for me. I like Lucy, I hate Lucy, I like Lucy, I hate Lucy, I'm confused I don't know what reality is anymore and my life is a lie. The gore and Nudity make me recommend this for 18+ viewers. Honestly, for me I barely noticed the nudity with all the flying heads. The gore has people being split apart just standing there. This is a show that you must watch. And if you wonder how gory is it? If you know the infamous children murder scene over a dog, it came from here.
This Anime is an Anime that many people believe has no plot until until season 3, "Darkness", which I actually agree with most of it. This is a very inappropriate Anime even worse then Highschool dxd, yeah Highschool dxd an anime that says it pushes the boundary of nudity. The openings they are nothing to write home about, that is until the third season. One of the best openings I have ever heard. The anime is very wacky and sometimes funny. Darkness, the third season, introduced me to one of the best openings of all time. The Anime is worse way worse then the openings. I mean...the second season were all fill in episodes. The third season was great, and the fourth ok. The plot is about a young boy named Rito? Who one day decided to take a normal shower, he sticks out his hands and a naked Alien girl with human skin named Lala appeared in front of him. He grabbed her breasts. Apparently, this meant for Rito that he would become her fiancé. Lala is a very wacky person since she has no idea about technology on Earth. Lots of laughs. Anyway this show would be what I consider borderline po#$. Yeah, no joke. This show is wet the infamous ice cream scene came from where Rito stuffs it in momo's mouth (long story) and it drips on her clothes. Yeah definitely not for children. I would give this show a age recommendation of 18+.
EPIC, legendary, iconic are ways I use to describe this show and the anime. The plot is like this creepy and best yandere Yuno Gasgai has a crush on Yuki kun. Yukiteru has a flip phone in which he always writes down his daily events he does that day in his phone like a diary. He talks to a god sort of like creature known as? Who controls time. He makes a deal with Yukiteru and all the other diary owners that over a game of life and death between them he will choose his successor to rule over time and space. Yukiteru goes to school the next day and finds out that cute girl Yuno Gasgai has a crush on him and she has one of the 12 diaries the Yuki diary. The third is after them. Yuno ends up killing the third. And she continues her journey/murder spree with Yuki kun to kill all the other diary owners. I did not see the twist coming at all, like when I watched Another I was completely dumbfounded. This anime is too great to spoil and that's why you need to watch it yourself. Now it's time we talked about the opening. One of the best and most iconic openings, that did the same that Another did shows how each of the diary owners will die. It's ingenious. The fast paced lyrics and visuals make it all the more better. You might have heard of this anime since it is incredibly popular. You will hear lots of Yuki kun! Yuki! Yuki! Yuki! Yuki! Yeah it's insane, I'm still trying to escape from it. Anyway for age recommendation well this hard. There's a sex scene and there's nudity. So I'll say 18+++.
Another is a great anime and has a great opening. Another is about a boy named Sakakakibara who is transferring to a new school. Another shows how each character will die in very creative ways in the opening, Another is very dark, gory and bloody. I would recommend for ages 18+
I still haven't finished this anime as of writing this, so I can't give a great summary, but here goes. The opening is incredible and I would argue better then the anime itself. The plot is about a high school boy named Kojou Astasuki who is a legendary vampire named the fourth progenitor. He meets other vampires harassing a girl who is named Himeragi Yukina. The first episode really made me not want to watch the series, since she basically had her panties blow off like 10x through the episode. But I watched more and, I ended up liking it. Currently, I am on episode 11 I think. Anyway, she ends up becoming his stalker of sorts assigned to watch him by the lion organization. That's all I can say watch it! For age recommendation I would say 14+, but because I haven't finished it, I will say 18+.
What I like that trinity seven does differently than all the other harem T.V. shows, is that here the main character is a pervert who is so confident in himself and has balls, he isn't afraid to say whatever is on his opinion. Anyway the opening is epic, but not as epic as the other 8 on this list, just check it out for yourself. There is no nudity what so ever, but it likes to show clips of girls getting their clothes blown off so your choice there if you would show that to Children. The plot is great. The plot revolves a boy named Arata who has a cousin named Hijiri. He has feelings toward her. They go outside together until he sees a black sun. He catches on to the fake reality he is living in, and a girl comes to kill him, Lilith Asami. Lilith is just about to kill him, when Arata decides he wants to become a mage like her. He goes to the academy and finds out he is a demon lord candidate who is incredibly powerful, but hasn't realized his potential. In order to reach his peak strength, the pervert principle of the school assigns him to the trinity seven, a group made up of the most talented mages in the school, who all just happen to be all girls. In the top ten Harems of all time. For age recommendation there isn't really any nudity so I would recommend 14+
This show shares a lot in common with Highschool DxD, except think even more sexual innuendos. Here is how the plot goes: a highschool boy named Basara has a father. This father marries someone, who I think unfortunately dies. Basara ends up getting two step sisters, Mio and Maria. Basara tries to enjoy their presence. Then they end up revealing that they are devils and that they brainwashed his father to believe that situation. Basra's reveals he is part of a clan called the hero's and must kill them. He ends up not doing so. Maria the succubus forges a bond between him and Mio as master and servant. Wow this sounds almost exactly like Highschool dxd. Anyway I can't describe the opening, only that you should watch it. Anyway for Age recommendation I will say a confident 100% 18+.
There are just too many great Anime openings that it was hard for me to make this list. No game no life is a great Anime about a brother and sister who are obsessed with games of any kind that are transported into a game world where everything is won by games. The opening is EPIC I can't describe it. For age recommendation I would say 14+.
Highschool of the dead is another great Anime opening that deserves to be mentioned. The anime may be a bit lackluster at times, but the opening makes up for it. The great splash of colors and lyrics make it better. The plot is about a student (forgot the name) who loves Rei, his childhood friend. One day a zombie invasion surrounds the school and he, Rei and a few others are able to make it out. They fight against the world in this Anime. For age I would recommend 16+.
