top 10 anime openings
We have all skipped through the opening songs of our favorite anime occasionally. In fact, some never listen to the opening theme songs. However, even those with no patience to listen to the entire tune must admit that some of the animes have been defined by the kind of opening song the used. Here is a short list of the top ten anime songs that we at MTG Lion found noteworthy.
Hello, world! – Kekkai Sensen
The Kekkai Sensen show is quite weird. However, it is a good kind of weird. This world and even the plot does not make sense much of the time but the show creators understand this, and they manage to integrate the nonsensical feel and use it to increase the charm of the show. Surprisingly, the show turns out to be a lot of fun to watch. The opening of the show manages to represent all of that perfectly. The visuals combined with the upbeat and calming music and the vocals let you know not to expect the ordinary.
Resonance by T.M. Revolution in Soul Eater
The opening to Soul Eater on doubt gets you pumped for the events to take place in the series. However, it also ensures that it does not sound too serious. The use of the J-pop sound from T.M. Revolution’s Resonance is the perfect way to set the tone for this show about teenage grim reapers. It is a song that seems relatable to a group of teen girls that carry six-foot scythes and strange, unique bad boys but one to which you can pump iron.
Tank! by The Seatbelts in Cowboy Bebop
Tank! Is an iconic a song as you can get in the world of anime. From the unmistakable saxophone and unmistakable trumpet to the perfect blending of hard bob beat and jazz, this tune gets you in the mood to watch an old-fashioned cowboy adventure set in space.
A Cruel Angel’s Thesis by Yoko Takahashi in Neon Genesis Evangelion
The upbeat opening theme sound may not be enough to prepare you for the onslaught of confusion that is in the show. However, maybe the contrast of the song and the show is the best part about it. The song rolls on while you see flashes of the main characters and some random images. You are left to decipher on your own what it is all about.
Go!!! by FLOW in Naruto
The three exclamation marks are enough to tell you that this song means business. The song blends seamlessly into the open action and the lighthearted sequences. It manages to perfectly portray what Naruto is all about. The pace of this track helped to breathe fighting imagination into the minds of an entire generation of teens.
Colors by FLOW in Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion
This psychedelic and colorful song helps to put you under a spell from the beginning of the series. One of the reasons why this opening is so interesting is that you get to see Lelouch utilize his mind control power on the audience. This theme is undoubtedly one of the most inviting themes in the world of anime.
The World by Nightmare in Death Note
The opening of Death note can only be described as provoking, epic, and metaphorical. With this theme song alongside depictions of the main characters, this theme song has a way of forcing itself into your head. The theme song manages to set the perfect mood for a morally grey series.
Rock the Dragon by Shuki Levy & Kussa Mahehi in Dragon Ball Z
This opening theme song may have only a few words but it has plenty of action. There is no doubt that just thinking about it gets you humming to this epic anime opening. While the original Japanese opening was catchy too, this one is preferable because it has that nostalgic feel to it.
Guren no Yumiya by Linked Horizon in Attack on Titan
This opening will get you really pumped up with its progressive metal style and the dark themes. It makes you feel like you can crush giants and unleashes the inner beast in you. If you listen to this theme song often, it is easy to imagine yourself as one of the heroes in the series leaping form tall building to tall building.
Pokémon Theme by Jason Paige in Pokémon
This is one of the most memorable theme songs in all of anime due to its ability to bring viewers closer together. The song also acts as the social glue that helps you make new friends and keep the old ones. This song is still the most successful song by American Singer Jason Paige. The song was written and produced the John Loeffler.
What do you think of this list? Does it meet all the expectation you have had about the top opening in anime? We, no doubt, are aware that you may have a different opinion but this was the best that we could do.
