My favorite anime openings

In this article, I am going to share my favorite anime openings of all time. Of course, with time there are epic openings that can replace or enter my top 10 as was the case with the opening of Darling in the Franxx and Steins; Gate Zero, that I've been listening to almost every day. In this article, I will keep the old ones from my list.

I hope you will also share your list of favorite opening in the comments of this article. Let's start! I'll leave the list soon (over 10) and the videos below the list if you want to watch. I don't like bullshit…

Departure - Hunter x Hunter

Some get sick of listening to the same opening song in 148 episodes, but I really liked it and I thought it perfectly matches the transitions of the anime. The opening Departure is sung by Masatoshi Ono who was born in 1967 and known as the vocalist of the band Galneryus. Same band that sings the second ending of the anime which is also epic.

Sekai wa koi ni ochiteiru - Ao Haru Ride

I don't know why I liked this song to the point that I chose the name of Suki Desu's website, and that expression appears only once in the song, but in a penetrating way. It's a very popular song in Japan and karaoke, and was created by CHiCO with HoneyWorks.


Rain SID - Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood | Period | Again

Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood is one of the most epic anime of all time. People prefer the first openings like Again and Period which are also very good, but my favorite is probably the least popular, the last opening called Rain sung by SID.


Zankoku na Tenshi no Teeze - Evangelion

Most already know this song, it is one of the most popular in Japan, basically it is the most sung song in karaoke and one of the most popular of all time sung by Yoko Takahashi. I didn't even want to watch the anime and I know practically all the music word for word.

Hikaru Nara – Shigatsu wa kimi no uso

Goose House is one of my favorite Japanese bands, mainly because of this opening and closing of the anime Gin no Saji oto no naru hou e. This band is famous for making covers on YouTube, the way they sing in sync is very good and gives the music a more natural air:


Uchuu Kyoudai - OP 1 and OP 8

The anime Uchuu Kyoudai is one of my favorites and I really like the first opening (Feel so Moon) and especially the eighth: BB by THE Yatou


Friendship - Sukitte Ii na Yo

The first time I heard this song, I had a slight impression of having heard it somewhere else. and this same song actually appears in the anime Love Hina which is very old. It was difficult to find this song on YouTube, probably the copyrights are weighing a lot. This song is sung by Okazaki Ritsuko and the two versions are a little bit different.


Irony - Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai

One of my favorite anime has one of my favorite songs sung by the band Claris who also sings the opening of Ero Manga Sensei. The best thing about this opening is that each episode of the anime had different transitions, a different opening for each episode. I will leave 2 versions of the song, the original and one that I also think is really cool.


Try Again - Detective Conan

Mai Kuraki is famous for singing several songs from the famous anime detective conan. My favorite is Try Again opening number 35. I also really like the koi ni koishite closure.


My Dearest - Guilty Crown

I don't have much to describe about this opening, just listen to Koeda's masterpiece, Supercell.
