7.5/10. Good song, but the animation is pretty eh? Just a girl talking twice and a couple scrolling shots.
Tad late due to Isais taking out my WiFi and then the forums being down when it got back on. But the the girl "talking" is actually singing the ending theme itself not talking through it.

But moving on..... 6.5/10 for the opening, I would've rated it higher but the singer's voice was a bit too high pitch for me, can't blame her cause it's her voice but I still like the song. Otherwise the opening is cute and funny.

Well time for one of my favorite OST songs from Re:Creators.

Composed by Hiroyuki Sawano, vocalist unknown to me.

8/10. The drums and buildup were intensely good and the vocals were very well-reverberated it brought the whole song to a new level. Nice!

The opening of Fate/Stay Night Season 2 by Aimer

8/10-Like it a lot more than I thought I would, though I do really like Aimer so that might factor into it. Never really watch anything of Fates, probably should get into at some point.

8/10 Not a fan of the song, but the visuals are great and I love this show! (But seriously, BD release when?!)

Melancholy. Given it's an ED and the image, makes me think whatever it is had a BAD END. At first, at least until the second movement where it got super orchestrated, making me think BITTERSWEET END. 9/10

Time for a nostalgic classic most of us should be familiar with!

4/10 for me. I hate GameFreak's over reliance on this track and I think the digital mix or whatever they used for this doesn't make it better for me in any way. Honestly now it just sounds like a Mario Kart track song not a Pokémon song.

4/10 Ehhh...The instrumentation is fine, but the singer sounds like he's phoning it in.

It's nice, but the music doesn't really seem to fit with the tone of the visuals for a decent chunk

Another absolute classic that I only just watched recently, actually

8/10-While my feeling on the series has been mix, this still a bop.

Now, one of my personal favorite anime series and soundtracks.

I usually don't enjoy this kind of music, but this one wasn't bad. The instrumentals were really nice.


Curious what people have to say about this one lol.

Bass riff at the start is so smooth.~

7/10. That's a nice bass-line as you said and it's a decent foot tapper but otherwise somewhat on the generic and unmemorable side for me.

As for my entry, here's a blast from the past. :)


One of very few anime OPs to lack any kind of vocals. :unsure:

6.5/10-Not really my cup of tea. I never heard of Gungrave though it sounds familiar, the beat is nice I'll give that.

Now one of my favorite ending songs for an anime film.

That's definitely the mellowest thing I've heard from Mafumafu. I prefer his hyper singing but that's some very nice piano playing. 7/10

Here's something really oldschool:

^ 9/10. You definitely can't go wrong with some awesome strings and there's something very timeless about that style of singing.


Since we're on the topic of old-school. Here's the first ever Isekai anime. 38 years later and that theme still slaps. :)

8/10-I never actually heard of this anime, but damn I love me some old school anime openings. Especially since they also sound like the old school Super Sentai openings I like as well.

Now time for a personal favorite of mine that I just rewatched. This is the full opening as an AMV since all the other videos of the OP were either cropped or the video portion was sped up.

I wish this show had a season 2 so bad.

8/10. Sounds really happy and upbeat and I like those kind of OPs.

Today (April 3), it's 5 years ago that Kōji Wada passed away (January 29, 1974 – April 3, 2016), so in honor of this legend:

(Side note: the English openings definitely have childhood nostalgia attached to them for me, but tbh it's a damn crime that the English dub didn't keep the Japanese opening themes, even if just instrumental)

10\10 Classic, nothing else to say. I still get goosebumps from hearing this as a little kid (well, my local version anyway, which is partially based on the Japanese one). Too bad Digimon Adventure:'s opening doesn't come even close to this one.

Another anime which marked my childhood.

8/10-So this is where this song was from. I watch a fan animation long ago which turns out was this opening made into a Pokémon Adventures one, I watch it as a kid and never knew where it was from and now I do.

New anime opening as of last Friday.

Yes, the studio who did do Rising of the Shield Hero is doing a card game anime.
