My Top Anime Openings [Updated]

I wrote a post called, My Top 10 Anime Openings back in August 2017. My music tastes have changed! I’ve also watched more anime since then. These aren’t in any particular order, except for Unravel at the top of the list.

1. TK from Ling Tosite Sigure – Unravel (Tokyo Ghoul) 

This is not only my favourite anime opening, but it’s also my favourite song of all time. I love everything about Unravel. I love the lyrics, TK’s unique voice, and the instrumental music. I also love the visuals of the Tokyo Ghoul opening.

Who is that inside of me?

Here in this broken-down, broken-down world, 

you laugh, without seeing a thing

I’m just so damaged, I hold my breath and freeze 

… 

In this twisted world, I’m gradually growing transparent and vanishing 

2. Ling Tosite Sigure – Abnormalize (Psychopass) 

I really love TK’s voice.

3. TK from Ling Tosite Sigure – katharsis (Tokyo Ghoul:re Season 2) 

4. MAN WITH A MISSION – My Hero (Inuyashiki)

Inuyashiki is one of my favourite anime.

5. Fear, and Loathing in Las Vegas – Let Me Hear (Parasyte) 

Anime openings are shortened versions of songs but the best part of Let Me Hear (1:45) is cut in the anime opening. =_= Here’s the music video.

6. Fear, and Loathing in Las Vegas – Chase the Light! (Kaiji Season 2)

If you like this song, you should listen to the full version.

7. BiSH – PAiNT it BLACK (Black Clover Opening 2) 

I didn’t discover the idol group through anime openings. I think they’re really cool. I recommend their song, GiANT KiLLERS.


Other anime openings:

  • Vickeblanka – Black Rover (Black Clover Opening 3)
  • Sumika – Fiction (Wotaku ni Koi wa Muzukashii)
  • Kana-Boom – Silhouette (Naruto Shippuden Opening 16)
  • amazarashi – Sora ni Utaeba (My Hero Academia Season 2 Opening 2)
  • Kenshi Yonezu – Peace Sign (My Hero Academia Opening 2)
  • Dean Fujioka – History Maker (Yuri!!! on Ice)
  • Nightmare – The World (Death Note)
  • The Oral Cigarettes – Kyouran Hey Kids! (Noragami Aragato)
  • Ritsuko Okazaki – For Fruits Basket (Fruits Basket)

I’ll also be posting My Top Anime Ending Songs list! A lot of people ask me about the music I listen to. I would say that I like songs if the singer has a really nice voice, if there are drums, or if it has a unique sound.

My Top 5 Spring 2018 Anime Opening Songs

The anime club at my university did a poll thing where members rate each opening song from this season’s anime. The goal was to compile a list of the best to worst opening songs. It inspired me to write this post! Hm, according to the statistics I liked some of the lower ranked songs more than average and liked some of the higher ranked songs less than average. Lol.

When I rated the songs, I only rated them based on the actual song. I didn’t take the opening visuals or anime into consideration.

5. Black Clover – Opening 3

I admit that I was one of the people who didn’t like Asta’s Japanese voice but I feel kind of bad about it now. I don’t think we should let one person’s voice affect our view of a show that a team of people worked hard on too much.

Anyways, I like the song’s chorus. It’s really catchy.

4. Grancrest Senki – Opening 2 (watch on YouTube)

I love the first 30 seconds the most! The singer’s voice is so nice.

3. Steins;Gate 0

The singer has a powerful voice!

2. Kakuriyo No Yadomeshi (watch on YouTube)

I love the background music because of the instrument choice. It’s a very addicting song.

1. Tokyo Ghoul:Re

It’s not as good as Unravel but nothing can beat Unravel for me. Unravel is my number one opening song of all time. I’ve always liked Tokyo Ghoul music so this was not surprising for me. I just like this type of music. I really like the singer’s voice.

What are your best (or worst) opening songs from this season’s anime?
