A reboot of the old thread

It's very simple, rate the song of the poster above on a scale of 1-10
ten being the best and one being the worst
.
Give a reason if you want, and finally a new song for the next poster to rate!


Some of the posts from the old thread have been copied over to have a beginning, the biggest difference since then is that you're not limited to OPs anymore, EDs & OSTs are also fair game!

10/10. A classic and personal favorite of mine. Especially can appreciate it these days for still having art that stands out (actual noses!) in an age where anime art tends to be homogenized. Also put it in more SRW games. Should've been in X because it was mainly set in an actual fantasy world AND had Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water for the Atlantis connection

I'd go with Genesis of Aquarion (or Macross) just to meme because they were written by the same person. Some other time, because I wanted to post this one whenever I was feeling up for it.

8/10-This looks so familiar for some strange reason and I can't put my finger on it. It may help it that it looks like some weird crossover between Evangelion and Digimon to me.

Now time for a very recent anime, one that I came out this past Saturday. Welcome to the weird way Bushiroad is now promoting their trading card game, with a magical girl series. Like seriously, even one of their weapons is a card binder. Meet a weird fusion of Cardcaptor Sakura and CardFight! Vanguard.

But damn, this opening has no right to be this good.

6/10-While I appreciate the (abelit odd) Sentai references, I could never get into this anime or its opening.

Now time for a late 90's classic......."PRESENT DAY. PRESENT TIME. AHAHAHAHAH."

Yeah, that's pretty much the approriate reaction. I had the same one even though I've been watching the anime for years.

8.5/10. Shrug visuals, but is a nice song.

You're only half-right. RahXephon has been compared to Eva, but it was in fact directly inspired by this classic 70s anime:

In fact in SRW MX, all three are in the same game.

6/10 - It's beautifully animated, but I feel like the song goes all over the place like it can't seem to settle on a specific tone or instrumentation. Plus the first 15 seconds are kinda grating to me.

6.5/10- While I like the the 80's/90's old school Sentai/Kamen Rider opening, something's off to me. Maybe it's just how frilly and bright (and weirdly very very mute despite the bright colors used) everything is to me, while I have not watched anything from PreCure so this can change once I watch a PreCure show like this but for now it's a meh.

God damn that is gorgeous. The colours are so pretty and the music sounds great. Only thing is that it seems to be weirdly allergic to showing the guy with his mouth closed and it's kinda distracting

Me when attempting to watch March comes in like a Lion for the 4th time, I just can't get myself to sit through ep 1.


Goya wa Machiawase used to be one of my favorites back when I watched Noragami for the first time (iirc 2016?).
Last time I made a top 100 songs list, it ended up in position #90, but I've gotta give it a 7.5/10 these days.

10/10- I have not watch Tower of God yet but I've listen to this so many times already cause it's such a good opening.

I don't know whether to upset or angry about this, especially since I've watch it twice and read the manga. AHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!

Posting the next Sangatsu no Lion opening cause I want to.

Unison Square Garden really has their own sound, you instantly know when you're listening to one of their songs. As always the visuals for Sangatsu no Lion are great. But I do think I prefer the other OPs of SnL

How's the manga vs the show? Maybe I'll try picking up the Manga first and watch the show after :unsure:

I watched this show just the other month, and fell totally in love with the OP, Naru by Luck Life.
(couldn't find a short version with good audio quality so have a full version instead)

I didn't like it much at first, but it really picked up in the second half, not bad.

I went to YouTube to get a song and one of the people I'm subscribed to happened to be playing an anime song live so this is the song I've picked.
It's a great catchy song, one of my favourites.

9/10 Unison Square Garden never disappoints, not to mention the visuals are so fun to watch. I believed I enjoyed BBB back when it first aired?

8.5/10. Catchy, but having watched the OP, I can't tell you what the anime is actually about.

That feel when the mods forcibly merge it all. Well, I'll use it as a chance to post something equal parts girly and hot-blooded, that I always wanted to anyway, now via the first thing that isn't an OP or ED. So it's good in that sense!:

(Recommend looking up the "Gunbuster Battle" scene itself too, not just to see it in actual use either)

Honestly, not that much different. The anime is probably the most close to the manga as possible, it even labels the chapters during the episodes used during it.

Well since we can post more than openings now.
