Worst Anime Opening Songs of All Time

This is a list of all the bad anime opening songs. Put one you hate. Format is as follows: song - anime.

The Top Ten

1 Sirius - Kill la Kill

Ambiguous IS better. - 906389

Not a bad song by Eir Aoi, but she could have done better. I prefer Ambiguous over Sirius actually. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

2 Crossing Field - Sword Art Online

First, that abysmal Most Disappointing Anime of All Time list, and now I'm stuck with Worst Anime Opening Songs of All Time. Crossing Field is one of my favorite Sword Art Online opening songs of all time, and is one of my favorite LiSA songs along with Rising Hope and Oath Sign! How dare you put this on the list! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

I understand you are quite disappointed, but I do admit that it is rather rude to yell at someones opinion... This is an opinionated site and people need to take peoples beliefs into consideration before they post a hate comment... - Flowersocks2137

*cough* LiSa *cough* - SelfDestruct

3 Munou - Tokyo Ghoul Root A

Tokyo Ghoul Root A had a good storyline, a good animation, and a good plot and yet the opening is awful. I wonder whether the opening matches the anime itself. After listening to the song for the first time, I skip it because of its awfulness

4 Ambiguous - Kill la Kill

I actually like this song. GARNiDELiA does a good job with this song. It's slightly better than Sirius. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

5 Liar Mask - Akame ga Kill

Not bad, but I wouldn't really call it a favorite for me. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Actually, I kind of agree with this item. I preferred Skyreach over Liar Mask. No wonder Toonami used a random OST for the second intro opening theme song for Akame ga Kill! But it isn't that bad. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

I actually kinda liked Skyreach. But this one was bad. - SelfDestruct

It’s fantastic

6 Kyouran Hey Kids!! - Noragami Aragoto

hell no.

7 Ignite - Sword Art Online II

Decent but I prefer Courage over Ignite - Hoxton

Oh hell no! Not another one of my favorite anime opening theme songs on here! Eir Aoi is one of the best J-Pop singers out there and this being on the list disappoints me! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

8 Pirate Rap - One Piece

Oh my God, why isn't this number one? No joke, this is the worst theme song I've ever heard in anything. Go look it up right now. Stop whatever you're doing and actually listen to it. - RoseRedFlower

4Kids absolutely butchered this anime. Good job to Funimation for making a great dub.


I hate what 4kids did to one piece but I never heard the opening itself

I only know this song as the opening to none piece...

9 Seishun wa Hanabi no You ni - Attack on Titan Junior High

Not that bad, but Guren no Yumiya was better. But the whole list is complete garbage! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

10 Strike Back - Fairy Tail

I prefer Snow Fairy over Strike Back. It's still a good song though, just not one of my favorites. - Pegasister12

The Contenders

11 The Rock City Boy - Fairy Tail

This should be higher! It didn't fit the Fairy Tail theme at all. Not to mention it just shouts a bunch of random stupid words that don't make any sense

Boo worst Fairy Tail theme ever!

Cringeworthy and doesn't fit fairy Tail at ALL

12 Let Me Hear - Parasyte
13 The Everlasting Guilty Crown - Guilty Crown

You know, even though I've heard so much about how crap Guilty Crown is, the soundtrack was pretty awesome! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

14 Gera Gera Po - Yo Kai Watch
15 History Maker - Yuri on Ice
16 What's Up People - Death Note

The first death note opening " the world" by nightmare is one of the best anime openings of all time. So why would you replace it with this god awful song. If it ain't broke don't fix it.

17 Tell Me Why - Berserk

Doesn't fit the tone or pace of the show what so ever...A


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

Sigh... yet another good song is on this list. I love the first opening Ideal White by Mashiro Ayano, and it's one of my favorite anime openings of all time, but when I heard the second opening Brave Shine by Aimer, that instantly became another one of my favorite anime openings of all time. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

19 Hunter x Hunter 2011 Opening 1

There are different versions of this intro throughout the entire anime, but the only differences are the lyrics. And this song is just so bad. Departure (the name of this opening song) is definitely one of the worst anime outros I ever heard (I made the original list before I heard of this intro song). - SelfDestruct

So... Childish. Nothing like the show.

20 Wings of Words - Mobile Suit Gundam Seed Destiny

Thank the Burning Gundam that this opening wasn't in the HD Remaster version... - PerfectImpulseX
