Second part of my favorite anime OPs countdown. From the Holy Grail to the town of Oyashiro-sama. To the Excalibur from the Rumba~ (this time it’s pic related.)
15: Fate/Stay Night – “disillusion”
And # 15 goes to Fate Stay Night. I thought that the executions of each scene in the OP is really well done. And the song was good too. From the vocals, as well as it brings you to the dark atmosphere already.
14: Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai – “Naraku no Hana”
The song was peaceful, serene and calm, but the lyrics are really awesome. Also, as the song goes by, it becomes more empowered. I picked this one over the first Higurashi OP because I think the chorus part was better IMO. And Rika is MOE (random).
13: Goku Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei OP3 – “Kuusou Rumba Rap
Haha! This one’s my favorite Rumba remix. Zetsubou Sensei OP as really crazy indeed, as expected by it’s randomness and SHAFT’s artistic attempts. So this gets a spot.
12: SOUL EATER – “RESONANCE”
Soul Eater was one of the anime series that I enjoyed watching because of it’s visual quality, all thanks to Bones, and the OP for it shows that. Really good animation and visual plus an energetic song. The song also fits the series very well.
11: Elfen Lied – “Lilium”
*gets thrown by bricks* Yeah I know. “Lilium is the best OP evarr!!! blahblahblah” and I put it on the #11th spot. The reason why it’s on there because the song’s not the type of music I would regularly listen on a regular basis or may sing along to. Admit it, we sometimes sing along with a certain OP, but with Elfen Lied, I don’t think it’s catchy at all. But REAL great points for the art, and the nudes.
