Top 10 Anime OpeningsThis is a top 10 list of all the anime-openings out there
Ofc the Legendary + most memed anime opening. Has to be there on top. As much as I like AOT's openings, as a musician, I'd chose this over Guren No Yumia. Also, where is Shinzou wo Sasageyo?
Unravel is probably one of the most widely covered openings on YouTube! Every fan of Tokyo Ghoul appreciates Unravel because the words reflect the emotions of the anime perfectly. The fans couldn't stand the second season's opening simply because it didn't live up to the name of Unravel. It deserves to be number one. If Tokyo Ghoul isn't the best anime, the opening sure is the best opening at least. Listen to the words, hear the transitions and notice all of the hidden meanings within; it is a perfect representation of the struggles being the main protagonist!
I've watched over 50 animes and adding a few movies here and there but have never come across a song either opening or ending or OST that even comes close to the feel that Unravel has provided. 100% deserves the top spot.
Ah, Unravel. Just listened to it again a while ago. This song, it always gives me the chills whenever I listen to it. I listen to it everyday but I'm still not getting tired of it. Both the original and the acoustic one. And whenever I watch the anime (which I do, like, numerous times), I never skip the opening. because bruh, is so deym beautiful. It speaks to me. Lol. But if you've read the eng trans, you'll understand the meaning of the song and how it relates to the main protagonist of the anime. That's all. Kudos to the singer!
This is the best anime opening theme song ever! I can't believe it's not number one :( I can't even begin to describe how awesome it is. Not to mention, the song artist made absolutely awesome lyrics! I actually know all the lyrics by heart, and on the last day of school, sang it with my Anime Club as karaoke. The German or Swedish or whatever language at the beggining is awesome as well! It adds uniqueness to the song. I'm pretty sure it's the only anime theme song out there like that. Everything I hear it, I feel like singing my heart out and dancing! It gives me shivers. Not to mention, the video for it is awesome to (by that, I mean the video for it in the anime) and I love that one part where it shows some pictures from the Manga. There are also all the people slaying titans to the beat and flying around on the 3 Dimensional Maneuvering Gear. Just by listening to it, you can hear that the anime you're about to watch is going to be full of action, drama, cool characters and ...more
I can't believe that this isn't number 1! This is the best anime opening of all time topping Attack On Titan's other theme Flügel der Freiheit by a landslide. It has a catchy tune and once I listen to it, I can't get it out of my head for days. The lyrics are great in both English, Japanese and of course German. My favourite opening from my favourite anime. I'd love to be in this show, so if anybody creates a teleporter anytime soon, please give me a call. The songs English name Crimson Bow and Arrow just suits the tempo so well, and it's a song that I recommend to, well anybody.
"We pierce scarlet holes into the twilight with our crimson bow and arrow"... Whilst we see Eren facing off against the Colossal Titan... Epic as hell, gotta be on of the best quotes I have seen, except its not a quote, its just a line in an opening... An epic one liner like that, and it doesn't even qualify as a quote... Show is the most epic thing I have ever seen, and the opening is without a doubt truly marvellous.
Unravel should stay in 2. As amazing as that song is. Attack on titan has the best opening of all time!. Just this roller coaster of a song that doesn’t let your mind relax and when your done It’s like you came back from an intense trip somewhere
Being compared the sao opening crossing field actually hurts me but Again is a masterpiece of an op that should be number one but number three is still ok. Though it deserves Number one heres why The music is amazing by Yui and the animation is very nice as well even the way the characters interact in it like Ed Alphonse and Winry makes it a quality op
Every anime opening in this series is great. That saying, I think it's important to have a strong first theme song, to get the viewer hooked. Again does just that, hooking us into the plot, and making us want to discover more about FMAB. The beat, the tune, and the images come together to make a theme song that you will never want to skip.
Oh come on people! Both FMAs are some of the best animes ever. Both have the best openings ever, and this one is THE best one EVER! Or you're gonna say Unravel is better then Again (Unravel is good for sure, but the best? )? Same for Guren no Yumiya, which I'm surprised to not be on top of Unravel cause is so much more epic.
Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood has clearly the best anime openings. Every time I was exited seeing the next episode, I was also exited to watch the intro. The best of all is again. It's just so beautiful and I loved it since that moment I first had heard it.
Amazing song I have listening to it over 1000 times and easily thrashed my self over it 200+ times. Recommended if you are horney, let me know if you want to meet up and finger each other with this song playing.
This anime is the father of all anime. Just as it’s opening stands as greatest ever. It’s what every single anime soul heard of. Whole anime world in one song.
IT is just perfect, and the lyrics are amazing. I love it and wish it was my theme to wake up. the 2nd one is better for the show, but this theme is better over all
Much better than the second opening. Also the symbolism at the end (Light standing like Christ) is amazing
Evangelion has kept a special place in my heart ever since I heard this opening for the first time. This is most definitely Top 3.
Neon Genesis holds a special place in my heart Love this animes op so much.
This song also has to be a classic for long time anime lovers.
Gives goosebumps all the time, affects the emotions deeply, and is much better than the "Attack on Titan" and "Fullmetal Alchemist" themes. Definite Top 3 material.
The fact that this is so low is proof of how many people need to see Evangelion, I can count with my hand the number of songs that compare to A Cruel Angel's Thesis.
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.
I don't know why, but the first time I heard this song, it just stuck to my brain, and it's been there ever since...
Pretty much my favourite opening of all time. Transcribe it into piano and it is awesome.
My first anime, my favourite anime. Taught me how to appreciate life. Highly recommend
I love absolutely everything about this opening! The rhythmic tune is so catchy, it's well animated, and the vocals are so nice c: this opening deserves to be in the top five!
AMAZING! flow have previously sung openings for Naruto and many other anime to great success. Colours for Code Geass is probably the best in their repertoire and the best of the whole show. It is a must have for otakus
The when I saw this at the start of the second episode, I was like, "Lelouch is using his mind control powers on me! "
This opening alone made me interested in Code Geass. This should at least be in the Top 3.
I didn't even watch the anime when I first heard this. My sister told me she wanted me to hear it and I have to say, I was really impressed! I don't think I've ever heard a better opening (except maybe Sword Art Online) because it sets you up EXACTLY for what you are about to see- something dark that gets you pumped up. I have stopped watching this anime before because the first few episodes before Death the Kid (squeal) comes to the school are a bit boring to me, however I decided to continue it because something with this good of a theme song can't be all that bad.
This opening is a weird case because I really DO NOT like Soul Eater. The writing is awkward and forced and almost every character is just flat-out annoying or stupid, with the exception of Dr. Stein and maybe a couple others. The one thing they did right, however, was done so greatly that there are just no words other than "epic" to describe it. Whenever you mix tubular bells with electric guitars, you get some of the most epic sounding hard rock ever.
this song is one of those songs that you can't get out of your head because it's so catchy. seriously, I even memorized the lyrics (and I'm not someone who enjoys memorizing song lyrics most of the time)
Both this and Black Paper Moon are amazing openings. Resonance lasted for half the series, then Black Paper Moon came. Since I am commenting on Resonance, lemme just say something. This opening reminded me of a Halloween thing (Lol). I really, really loved it's rhythm.
Whatever your opinion is on the anime, you can't deny that this opening is GOOD. Its visuals are completely creepy and messed up but that and its catchiness it what makes it so good.
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.
I hate this site because it gets flooded by so called "anime fans" who have only watched naruto, bleach, aot (not saying aot is bad it's a bae) or DBZ and think they are the best things ever, I think fantasy mythology is the best, but higurashi is very close, also just look at the list for best anime of all time it's flooded by mainstream kiddies >:( but besides that rant I love the opening for Mirai Nikki, it is SUGOII!
This song literally gets stuck in my head 24/7 even though I don't know the words. I listen to it everyday because I'm so obsessed and I even had to get my friend to downlaod it for me to listen to at home without using youtube
Anyone who makes a list of the best anime opening themes and doe snot include this song in the top 10 does not rightly deserve to call themselves anime fans.
"Tank! " Does everything a good opening theme should do, hook the viewer in with it's visuals, strike their curiosity of what the show's narrative is and give them a theme song to get stuck in their head.
Cowboy Bebop does all this in strides. There's a reason it's widely regarded as one of the greatest anime ever created and a theme song like this is just the cherry on top of this masterpiece of a sundae.
I really like Cowboy Bebops music no matter if its for a cool chase or for a sweet moment in the show
This song just makes you wan to get up and move I really like that Cowboy bebops music can just put you in any type of mood.
This is the best one of all openings...This jazz bass thing did it for me and it did for all anime fans now and then...This deserves the top! How come Tokyo ghoul is on the top?
Considering this came out in 1997, Cowboy Bebop created a benchmark for all other shows, who now bow to this immortal classic. Nothing else compares.
It's called period and it's by chemistry. All of the fmab songs are great. But this one is the best. Seriously go check it out. It's better than again.
It's rewrite because if it was opening 4 from brotherhood it would say it like its says for again
I would say fullmetal alchemist brotherhood opening 1 and 4 is equal both really good
Is this rewrite or period? They're both cool but still. Specify, please.
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.
One of the best songs ever! I really like the dark desperate sound of it. Just fantastic!
I love the electric guitar in this song easily my favourite anime opening
This is also a good song... I keep this one on my playlist... Really catchy..
Amazing Song, One of the best. - Gohan your boy
This song just gets you pumped up
Shaggy ball z
Am I the only one who likes Hologram more than opening 1 'Again', I mean the first one is brilliant, well actually all five openings are masterpieces but no 2 just seem pure badass too me the song just fills you with energy and has got quite compelling fight scenes like:- Bradly vs ling and gang, Ed vs Scar, Mutsang vs Lust. Combining both making it one hell of an immaculate piece of awesomeness.
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 love this a lot and even sing this absent-mindlessly in class.
I like all the openings but this one is my favourite
Come on man how is this 29th?!?! Hacking to the Gate is AT LEAST top10 for crying out loud!
Hacking to the gate is the best opening ever, along with fatima and amadeus.
Anyone who doesn't think this is the best anime opening has obviously never seen SteinsGate
Pretty good opening for a really good anime show
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
By far my favorite op, didn't even like the anime but still got creeped because of this op
This anime has a disturbing theme song
RIP Gin Ichimaru he only pretended to be Aizen's right hand man just so he can kill him
I'm listening to it right now. It always reminds me of Gin :'(
Perfect opening which is summing up whole story.
For me as well always reminds me of Ichimaru Gin
My favorite opening of the first series. It's just so catchy and epic.
This was the first Japanese song I ever heard
This is what got me into j-rock
Hype Hype Hype!
This anime has possibly the best OP I’ve ever heard. The vocals and music are really amazing, and the lyrics are so meaningful (if you’ve seen the whole season then you know what I mean). Honestly, Madoka Magica’s soundtrack is just great in general. Would definitely recomment this series, it’s not just any generic magical girl anime!
I love this series for so many reasons, but the top two have to be the intense, thought provoking plot and, of course, the music. For such a dark series, the music is utterly sweet and beautiful. The opening initially sounds like your standard, girly mahjo sohjo opening, but once the show reveals its true nature, it becomes more sad and urgent feeling. The coolest thing about connect,though, is how it basically., subtly, spoils the plot. Once you find out about Madoka and Homoura's mysterious connection ( ( pun intended! ) especially after episode 11) it makes sense; it is the friends promise to each other. This series has the met epic music of any magical girl series.
The opening is seems to look like that of a typical magical girl anime. But after episode 3, it seems like a lie. But it actually isn't when you watch episode 10 and beyond that. It's a very meaningful and emotional opening.
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.
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).
A song that gets you super pumped for the awesome that is Gurren Lagann
Amazing song matched with the mesmerizing Visuals
The very definition of Epicness!
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
This song is so catchy and easy to just listen to on repeat. Personally I think the first OP fits the show better, but this one is still good.
Noragami - Hello Sleepwalkers
This anime plus the opening were so amazing why is it not on the list I don't understand it was amazing.
I like this theme song but why is "Core Pride" not on this list. Opening 1 is way better.
The mystical riveting melodies make way for an epic rock tune
One of my childhood anime opening
My childhood says yes
So fitting to the show it represents
"THEY MAKE ME VIOLATE THEM NO MATTER WHO THEY ARE" ~ Black Lagoon, 2k15
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
I really like this intro, this intro and intro 14 fight together are my favorite one piece openings by far they are amazing. This intro I really like how it is because it goes along with a story and all the words in there kind of sum up everything that Luffy is trying to tell Sanji it's very good.
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.
Because I loved the song and also the lyrics and images made it so emotional.
I always feel nostalgic while listening. Best op of one piece with op 13
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
The opening is really cool but the anime is a complete waste of time.
Best opening of all time. Epic.
