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?

My Top 10 Anime Openings

These are my 10 favourite anime opening songs. I’m not saying that these are “the” best anime songs of all time, but my current personal favourites.

10. Fruits Basket Opening – For Fruits Basket by Ritsuko Okazaki

Every time I listen to this song, I get really nostalgic because I watched Fruits Basket when I was in primary school. The anime is very colourful and sweet. The manga is more complete and “darker” in my opinion. I recommend you finish the manga if you haven’t already.

9. Sailor Moon Opening (1-4) – Moonlight Densetsu by DALI 

8. Attack on Titan Opening 1 – Guren no Yumiya by Linked Horizon

7. One Piece Opening 10 – We Are! by TVXQ

One Piece is my number one favourite anime. It is the best selling manga series in the world and currently has over 700 episodes. Although it is really long and still ongoing, I highly recommend this series for everyone. It’s great for people of all ages. I may be 20 years old, but I am just in love with this show. I learned a lot from One Piece, including the meaning of friendships. It helped me realize that I was in toxic friendships in the past and that things can always be better. The show made me feel every emotion possible, and it brought back my laughter.

6. One Piece Opening 3 – Hikare E by The Babystars

5. Durarara!! Opening 1 – Uragiri No Yuuyake by Theatre Brook

I love just about every opening and ending song in Durarara. I enjoyed the first season more than the second. I thought the second season introduced too many characters too quickly.

4. Naruto Shippuden Opening 3 – Blue Bird by Ikimono-gakari

Naruto and Naruto Shippuden have several opening songs I like. For Shippuden, I turned to the manga because I hated the filler episodes (except the one-episode funny ones). I can’t get into Boruto, the new series about Naruto’s kids, because I don’t like the art style. I also feel that a lot of characters are out of character.

3. Death Note Opening 1 – The World by Nightmare

Death Note is one of my favourite anime and I fell in love with it the instant I laid my eyes on the series. I was around eleven years old and I remember my classmates telling me that it was too scary. Lol. There’s a Netflix film adaptation of Death Note. While I won’t judge the film too much without watching it first, Death Note remains a popular series after all these years.

2. Naruto Shippuden Opening 16 – Silhouette by KANA-BOON

1. Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood Opening 1 – Again by Yui

If you only listen to one song in this post, it should be this one. Maybe.
