Top 10 Anime Openings

This is a top 10 list of all the anime-openings out there

The Top Ten

1 Attack on Titan - Guren no Yumiya

One of the (Relatively) new classics. A show responsible for bringing in so many new anime fans and the opening was one that I listened to again and again. Even knew how the whole song went despite not knowing a single word of japanese and (at the time) knowing only a little german.

Attack on Titan is my favorite anime series and this opening is the best of the series

It is the best anime opening of all the time

Probably the most epic anime op ever

2 Tokyo Ghoul - Unravel

This is honestly the best anime song ever! I have no idea what it is doing here at the eighth number. The only Japanese song I bothered to memorize. A-Z! When I do my homework, I ALWAYS listen to this song. And when did I get to know this song? 6 months ago. The obsession is still here. Why vote to blue bird while you can vote for such a bliss!

This is the best anime opening I ever heard and I am in love with it

#1 best opening of our time

Such a good op

3 Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood - Again

Just one of the best.

I don't even watch the show but I love it!

Insanely good opening thanks to the amazing singer and the e-guitar.


4 Death Note - Sekai Wo

It is so catchy and interesting that it completely hooked me when I heard it the first time

This was my first anime when I came to an age of sense, 9...

The best ever.


5 Code Geass - Colors

Simply the best

All hail Lelouche!

Top 1

Best op

6 Sword Art Online Sword Art Online is a series of Japanese light novels written by Reki Kawahara and illustrated by abec. In 2012, it received an anime adaptation produced by A-1 Pictures and the SAO Project, and is directed by Tomohiko Ito . The first season is divided into two arcs known as "Aincrad" and "Fairy Dance". more.

I HATE the anime itself, but the OP is actually really good

There are MANY reasons this anime is the best, starting with the epic theme song.

Crossing fields is da best

For such a bland series this is a really good OP

7 Neon Genesis Evangelion - A Cruel Angel's Thesis

I have only watched like 8 episodes of this show and the I dropped it but I have to say the op is an all-time classic

Timeless classic, this is way more than an anime opening.

The best op ever


8 Angel Beats! - My Soul, Your Beats!

Knocking on Heaven's Door

A great song to listen to. A nice melody and awesome voice!

Best opening. By far.

My Soul, your beats in my opinion sets a good tone for the series. It can show Angel's loneliness but also the connectedness of many characters.

9 Future Diary - Fantasy Mythology

Never seen the anime, but the op is great!

Just the best ever. So catchy. Can't get it out of my head!

This opening is always stuck in my head and I have no problem with it. This is probably my favourite anime opening (along with soul eaters first opening). It's just so bad arse and gets you so pumped for the show. I think the singers did an amazing job and I love how they incorporated two different languages into it. All round it's just an awesome opening that I listen to repetitively all the time.

Helped me find my love for Yui Itsuki and Yousei Teikoku. 10/10

10 Cowboy Bebop - Tank!

I heard this opening way before watching the anime just loved it and the animation for this opening is amazing

My fathr actually doesn't really enjoys anime but he liked this one

A work of art

Amazing bebop

The Newcomers

? Fate/Stay Night - Op 2 Brave Shine
? Get Over - Hikaru No Go

Hikaru No Go's first theme. Really gets you pumped for Go - UnderratedEpisodeAdvocate

The Contenders

11 Ao No Exorcist - In My World

I like this theme song but why is "Core Pride" not on this list. Opening 1 is way better.

Okay I love the anime and all the openings but many people don't realize that its half yukios perspective and half Rin's listen to an English cover and you'll realize


the best

12 Fullmetal Alchemist - Opening 4

Amazing animation, decent song.

I've not even listened to this but FMAB's ops are the best.


It's rewrite because if it was opening 4 from brotherhood it would say it like its says for again

13 Soul Eater - Paper Moon

Soul Eater's second best opening.

Best opening and why is this song on list twice?

Wayyy better than resonance

I'm one of the few people I know who prefer this opening over Resonance. I just can't get enough of the catchy melody that does an excellent job setting up the later episodes of one of my favorite anime of all time.

14 Haruka Kanata - Naruto Opening 2

Very nostalgic.

This is what got me into j-rock


This was the first Japanese song I ever heard

15 Soul Eater - Resonance

I memorized the lyrics to this and sing it around my family to annoy them - GenericUser

Incredibly catchy, one of the few anime openings I never skip.

You know a theme song for an anime is good when you spend half your time figuring out how to sing it and pronounce the words correctly. - PokeFallsMagica

One of the best anime openings

16 Deadman Wonderland - One Reason

This theme song is so creepy

Toto be looking fine - Kuro

The opening is hella good and it goes well with the anime aesthetic, but the anime is absolute garbage as it is lazy work and incomplete from the full story. The manga is my favourite of all time and is definitely worth a read, I loved every aspect of it. The manga has true potential and you should check it out. I promise it's not disappointing!

This anime opening is amazing as hell

17 Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood - Opening 2

I love this a lot and even sing this absent-mindlessly in class.

Another FMA opening that's just very good.

This was the op for me. I enjoyed it more than the other ones. All the openings are masterpieces but for me, I like this one because it fitted all the key parts of the show that it had. Whilst all the openings were focused on one sort of idea, in a sense, one sort of emotion, Hologram personally ticked all the boxes.

I like all the openings but this one is my favourite - Gamer4life

18 Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni - Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni

This anime has a disturbing theme song

This opening manages to be ominous, creepy, beautiful and somewhat fast-paced all at the same time. I get chills whenever I watch this opening, even 5 years after having watched it. The feelings I had when I watched this series return and I immediately want to re-watch it. I have no idea why it's not higher on the list. This is the best anime opening I have ever watched.

At first, I liked the 2nd one better, But now, I like this one better. But I still like the Kai Opening - MLPFan

Great opening!

19 Puella Magi Madoka Magica - Connect

Just perfect

OOF. The good old days before episode three.

Okay. So when I first watched this opening I was like "that is the sweetest thing I've ever heard," so of course I had to download it and still listen to it all the time. Then of course I followed the pattern of every Mahouka fan (I watched episode 3 and was like well crap. That opening is trickery. ) still one of my favorite anime openings to this day.

I love this song! I even memorized the first few lines in Japanese. My friend showed me the lyrics for this song in English, and it turns out this song really does fit the mood of the show. - Absolite

20 Gurren Lagann - Sorairo Days

How is this below A Cruel Angel's Thesis. Honestly, I think Gurren Lagann had a better opening than Evangelion (not saying the song is bad, but I just prefer Sorairo Days better).

Awesome.Just awesome

A song that gets you super pumped for the awesome that is Gurren Lagann

21 Bleach - Opening 13

RIP Gin Ichimaru he only pretended to be Aizen's right hand man just so he can kill him - Periachi

I'm listening to it right now. It always reminds me of Gin :'( - Tuana123

For me as well always reminds me of Ichimaru Gin

Just listen to it, and you'll understand. - Pyrrhism

22 Hikaru Nara - Your Lie April Op1

Why isn't this the first I love this! 11

Its one of my favorite anime openings of all time

This is an amazing song should be number 1

Should be on number 1

23 Dragon Ball Z - Rock the Dragon

The anime opening I ever heard
actually the first I heard when I came to know the difference between anime and cartoon

Dragon! Dragon! Rock the Dragon! Dragon Ball Z! - SunGoku

This song just gets you pumped up

Amazing Song, One of the best. - Gohan your boy

24 Black Lagoon - Red Fraction

So fitting to the show it represents

The lyrics are simply mesmerizing. Every time I hear them my breath gets taken away. So much depth in a mere minute and a half. This should be #1


25 Boku No Hero Academia Opening 1 The Day

It really good

So beautiful

too good

liked it

26 Sword Art Online - Crossing Field

I love SAO its really cool. But then (SPOILERS WARNING! ) Asuna joined another guild ;-;

27 Guilty Crown - My Dearest

Literally I have only seen the first episode, I should probably finish watching this series cause' it has such a banger op.

Lost my ears because of this

Meh show great song

Imagine this song is 26 and fire force is higher then this amazing

28 JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Op 2 - Bloody Stream

Not only the opening but best jojo

What why jojo on 31


Why so low, this and fighting gold are like god level openings

29 Naruto - Aoi no Sora

This opening still excites me even after so many years

Blue bird is my top 5 but the only choice that has Naruto op

My farorite song

This song should be on top of list

30 Kill la Kill Op 2 - Ambiguous

Honestly, just give this song a listen, you'll see it's clearly the best, now please do us all a favor and listen to this song.

31 Steins;Gate - Opening 1

"But for you, even thousand of beating hearts were like a simple and predictable experiment" For some reason, this sentence from the op stuck wit me

The first op I was able to learn... Just amazing!

Pretty good opening for a really good anime show

It really makes you think...

32 Yu-Gi-Oh! - English Opening

One of my childhood anime opening

33 Attack on Titan - Jiyuu no Tsubasa

To good to be true

The best anime opening ever! Jiyuu no tsubasa has a great lyrics, too. That's why I love so much this song!

31? Really? Really... Merge those two digits together and BOOM. Number 4 for titan's sake (31, my dog).

The best and most epic opening ever! I always got chewed at the part:"Welding the blades of Gloria, we've made for victory..."

After hearing the full song of Jiyuu no Tsubasa, I just want to jump off the window with 3DMG and go slice some titans, or just look at sky and wish I can go to their world. This song is also meaning "Wings of Freedom".

34 One Piece - We Are (English version)

Very good opening

One of the all time greatest. Fun, iconic and full of action. Has a right that will always stick with you and brings a sence of adventure and nostalgia. All one piece songs are Golden.

35 Bleach - Asterisk

First Japanese song I completely worked out a dance routine to, absolutely awesome

Epic "Miageta yosora no hoshitachi no hikari" has to be the catchiest line I've ever heard!

36 Air TV - Tori no Uta

The only reason Tori no Uta is this low is because many people don't know about the anime. It at least deserves to be in the top 10, everything in the opening goes hand in hand, plus Lia's angelic voice!

Surprised to find this opening so low. it at least deserves to be in top 5

This opening is beautiful! Why isn't it top 10!? - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

37 Parasyte - Opening


I can't believe there aren't any votes here! "Let me hear" makes up by far the best opening song in anime

Let me hear Is amazing really not even top 20

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas for the win!

38 11eyes - Arrival of Tears

Now this is what I'm talking about when I say awesome. This is my kind of music. Whether it's fast, slow or whether it's sang by a male or female, I always love metal music. This is one of those anime songs that despite it being in Japanese, I can't resist singing along to it. The guitar sequences in it are the best I've heard in anime opening songs. The animation in this opening really complements the show too. - MottScurry

Best Japanese symphonic metal anime song ever! - MLPFan

Better than the actual show unfortunately


39 Naruto Shippuden - Diver


27 is too low for this. Its greatest op from naruto ever

What why is this so low?

Why is this so low it's my favourite by far

40 Fate/Zero - To the Beginning

Just a fan boy I guess

Truly captures the dark and tragic tone of the 2nd and final season of Fate/Zero. Even the name of it; To the Beginning. Shows how Kiritsugu's roots are explored. How he has to think back to the beginning in order to make his biggest decision. Can also be viewed as how this series is coming to a close, and the beginning to the sequel/main series, Fate/Stay Night, is coming.

"For the sake of creating a world where no one cries, I scream out a prayer that doesn't reach anywhere and disappears..."

"If I choose you, and if we can search for a happiness just for the two of us, It doesn't matter if freezing flames burn my body, I am near a smile."

41 Naruto - Go!!!


The visuals match the music perfectly - UnderratedEpisodeAdvocate

42 Attack on Titan - Opening 1

Adrenaline incomming

It's like a drug to me

This opening gets me so pumped, it's so epic. I always get chills at the part where they all jump into the air at the same time

This also really shows the desperate struggle to survive and fight the titans

43 Noragami Aragoto - Kyouran Hey Kids

I watched Noragami just for the opening

Lol just because the anime isn't as popular

I am obsessed with this anime and song, so :)


Better than most openings above this. - Smash64

44 Sign - Naruto Shippuden

Sad but the best op in my opinion

This is my favourite anime opening of all time

Gut wrenching... I really really wanted to vote for both Sign and Sekai wo. But, I suppose Sign is better by just the slimmest of margins. But it is heart-breaking to not vote for sekai wo :'(

I love this song. I can play it on repeat and never get sick of it.

45 Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works - Brave Shine

Should be in top 10 in my opinion, perhaps not many has heard of it yet. Or itjust sounds basic to some, however its tone really sets the premise of fate stay unlimited budget.

Hands down, best opening in all of anime, in my opinion of course. Thank you, Unlimited Budget Works for introducing me to Aimer the Great, truly my favorite singer in the world.

the best

This should be top one

46 One Piece - Opening 14 (Fight Together)

WHATS WRONG WITH PEOPLE! It's one of the greatest theme songs ever. it has fabulous rhythm and music and singing. Shows tragedy, flashback, fun and hope. It shows the hope of the protagonist and moving forward. It encompasses the pain and fun memories and growth that he has gone through to move forward. It is so meaningful to the series beyond how amazing just the music itself sounds. Yet it's so low on the list because stupid fan girls hype junk like SAO because they like the show even though others songs are better, and Attack on Titan (while great) is on here Twice! People look and learn the song title before brainlessly adding it a second or third time like a moron.

There are approximately 1,013,913 words in the English language but I could never string any of them together to explain how much I love this song

When I first saw this opening I cried... I still do... It's very rare for me to cry at all... So far this anime has made me cry more then 5 times...

A perfect opening theme that perfectly concludes the first half of the series.

47 One Piece Opening 20 Hope!

Great visuals and the opening is catchy, also this arc is great too.

i love it!

Honestly this op is just so low because the people who voted otherwise have never heard this opening. I have listend to a lot of openings and still think this is at least top 10 worthy on any non emo list. The only way to hate this song is by not liking anything that will give you hope.

Best One Piece opening to be honest - smill

48 Soul Eater - Opening 1

Haha it's on the list twice

49 Fate Zero - Oath Sign (Opening 1)

I love the openings, and I also love LiSA, the creator of the song

I really love the contemporary medieval feel of the song! Not to mention you could feel the emotions of the singer LiSA as she sings throughout the whole song as well! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

50 Hello, World! - Blood Blockade Battlefront

Its amazing also season 2 op is cool ( FAKE TOWN, BABY )

Actually pretty good,though I want to know why people don't like this op though
