Top 10 Anime Openings

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

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Guilty Crown - My Dearest

Why do I not see a single Guilty Crown OST in the Top 10 list?

22 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.

23 Dragon Ball Z - Rock the Dragon

This song just gets you pumped up

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

love it

24 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

25 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

26 Steins;Gate - Opening 1

Best anime opening I think I've ever seen, and I've heard nearly all of the openings currently in the top 10

Come on man how is this 29th?!?! Hacking to the Gate is AT LEAST top10 for crying out loud!

It's a very fulfilling anime opening

Dude come on why is it 29?

27 Fate/Zero - To the Beginning

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."

28 Bleach - Asterisk

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

29 Bleach - Opening 13

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

Fast music and well video clip

30 Neon Genesis Evangelion - A Cruel Angel's Thesis
31 Elfen Lied - Lilium

It's really sad because it's from the music box in the anime.

This song has the feel to touch your heart! Best song ever

This song touched my heart. I loved this opening from the first episode

Best opening ever

32 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...

The best One Piece song, but definitely not the best anime opening. It does not deserve the top 20. As good as it is, there are much more better openings like 'Unravel', 'My Dearest', 'Guren no Yumiya', 'COLORS', 'Cruel Angel Thesis'Thesis', 'Again', 'Crossing Field', 'Jiyuu no Tsubasa' and so many more which is better than this. I think it shouldn't be higher.

33 Bleach - Opening 6
34 Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works - Brave Shine

Just an amazing song, suited the anime perfectly.

35 Neon Genesis Evangelion - Cruel Angel Thesis

What is this? Why is it at 7th? This should be the first one you nerds!

It seems like almost everyone has heard it before, but no one I know has ever recognized the anime. I just love this!

What!? Why is 17th!? If you haven't heard it, listen too it you will be addicted for days. The anime is good too. Just Shinji is a wimp. GET IN THE DAMN ROBOT SHINJI

Lmao why is this on place 16? This OP is a gem it should definitely be in the top 5

37 One Piece Opening 5 Kokoro No Chizu
38 Hello, World! - Blood Blockade Battlefront
39 Kaze No Stigma - Blast of the Wind
40 Attack on Titan - Opening 1

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

So awesome it's on the list twice - Absolite
