Obviously, I haven’t listened to every OP and ED of 2020. If you have any recommendations, let me know!
My Favourite Openings
忘言歌 Song of Words Unsaid by 赵磊 Zhao Lei (Chuan Shu Zijiu Zhinan / The Scum Villain’s Self-Saving System)
This is a Chinese song. I’m a huge fan of the series (novel and donghua). I also really like the singer.
No Separation by Jeff Chang (Heaven Official’s Blessing)
This is the series I am currently obsessed with! It’s a Chinese series by the same creator of Scumbag System (above) and Mo Dao Zu Shi. I think this opening has the best art.
Chiisana Hibi by flumpool (Kakushigoto)
I am a huge fan of flumpool.
Great Pretender OP by Yutaka Yamada (Great Pretender)
I’ve blogged about one of my favourite composers, Yutaka Yamada. He also composed the music for Tokyo Ghoul, which speaks to how versatile his music is. Great Pretender is amazing anime.
Dying Wish by 畠中 祐 (Moriarty the Patriot)
This song grew on me. I didn’t have a strong opinion of it at first but now I love it. Moriarty the Patriot was an amazing anime.
My Favourite Endings
籠の中に鳥 Kago no Naka ni Tori by ユアネス yourness (Sing “Yesterday” for Me)
In a recent post, I shared that this is one of my favourite songs.
SLUMP by Stray Kids (Tower of God)
I prefer the Korean version, maybe because they are a Korean group. I think it’s great that the show used songs from a Kpop group. After all, it is an adaptation of a Korean webtoon.
Lost in Paradise feat. AKLO by ALI (Jujutsu Kaisen)
This song is amazing. It is catchy and chill. I really like the animation here too. I’m really enjoying Jujutsu Kaisen right now. It’s kind of like a mix of Demon Slayer and Parasyte.
Other Side by MIYAVI (ID:Invaded)
ID:Invaded was a good anime. The concept is similar to the game, AI: The Somnium Files.
Do you like any of these songs? What are your favourite openings and endings of 2020?
