Now we’re down to the Top 10!!! This time from 10 to 6, we cover 2 scary and freaky anime OPs, a melancholic anime OP, a catchy mecha number, and everyone’s favorite shoujo anime OP. We are getting more closer to the top spot and I guarantee that the songs will get better and better!
10: LION – Macross Frontier 2nd OP
When it comes to current anime that is airing right now, “The Lion Song” stands out among the rest. No doubt this is my favorite of the year. The animation is shiny, flashy, busy, whatever you might say but it goes well with the upbeat and powerful song!. May’N and Nakajima Megumi did a great job!
9: PLATINUM – Cardcaptor Sakura 3rd OP
Maaya Sakamoto’s singing voice in this one is so cold and relaxing that it can heal you when you’re sick! It is so laid back that it’s perfect for a lullaby! I totally love the song and the video sequence is simple, which fits the song really well.
8: DREAM ISLAND OBSESSIONAL PARK – Paranoia Agent OP
Paranoia Agent’s opening sequence is really crazy and freaky which I really like! It never fails to give me ‘the chillz’ everytime I watch it. The laughing people will make you crazy especially when you only stare at their faces when watching it for like, 8-10 times repeatedly LOLZ. It suits the psychological theme of the show because it shows their insanity and they’ll make you… paranoid.
7: HIGURASHI NO NAKU KORO NI – Higurashi 1st OP
One of the best OP songs in terms of how it fits the show, and in terms of how it creeps the heck out of you by just listening to it. Eiko Shinamiya has a very beautiful voice which gives me goosebumps. If you had seen her PV for this one, she looks like Edea from FFVIII… Anyway back with Higurashi, the song makes you sink into the eerie atmosphere of the show and it rocks!
6: LAST REGRETS – Kanon 2006 OP
Like the musical piece entitled ‘Canon in D’, the OP song has similarities to it. Even if I repeat playing it over and over, it gets more beautiful. I find it weird since I always imagine snow and melancholy when listening to it. Last but not the least, the top-notch animation by Kyo-Ani makes it more effective! Kanon is definitely one of the FEW harem shows that I fell in love with.. Uguu~~~~
Time sure flies fast and it’s time to close this Live Countdown event by the next post! What do you think would be the Top 5? What about your favorite anime openings? Comment!!!
