Best opening theme/video
« on: November 03, 2009, 01:58:16 pm »
A lot of series have really epic opening themes and videos. I want to know what you all think are some of the best ones.

2 of my current favorites, are actually very similar opening themes.

DragonBall Z
Batman Beyond

What are some of your favorites?

well, it is an anime forum for cosplayers, so most of them are going to post anime instead of old school cartoons. As for me, I did post a few, tho not many, cartoon openings, Gargoyles and one other.

well, when I say anime, I mean Japanese animation. When I say cartoons, it means western animation, that's how it's usually depicted. But ya, Lupin was pretty cool... Another few ones are:

I really love the opening theme for Burst Angel. Loosey by The Stripes.

Resonance from Soul Eater, anything from When They cry, and The Italian Yugioh GX opening are amazing as well.

I'd post links but I'm in class right now.

OMG YESYESYES.
That theme was so very sexy.

I'd also like to second Cowboy Bebop, Don't know how I forgot it.

I'd like to mention Neon Genesis Evangelion because their theme actually had lyrics that had to do with the show. Something that is kind of rare for anime as far as I can tell.

I can't believe I forgot ghost and the shell as well as cowboy bebop! That shiz is the mad notes!

I also should suggest The opening/closing to Samurai Champloo. Well really the whole soundtrack for that series is kicking.

YES, that, along with Captain Planet are addicting (goes off to listen to the captain planet theme song)... But how about Transformers, that is one of the greatest theme songs of all time.

My friends call me captain planet at school because I constantly sing the theme song and quote the show. Along with also constantly complaining about people not recycling. XD
Man old school stuff is the best. Oh wait! I love tons of cartoon openings from the 90's! Like Ed, Edd, and Eddy, Danny Phantom, Fairly Odd parents, Rocket Power, Rosco's modern life and so on.

let's see, in my group of friends, we all took a role, I was earth because I was considered the black guy of the group for some reason, my friend Jared was fire, my friend Brandon was water, my large fat friend Kyle was wind, and my psychotic friend Caleb was given heart, and just out of no where, one us would yell our element and everyone else would then yell there's, and then my friend who we nicknamed planet would say captain planets biggest line...

A few more of my favs

Gintama Opening 1


woot, it's good to find other people who like Gintama, now if only it got more recognition, but if it did, than that would mean that my cosplay is no longer rare to find, more people would be cosplaying as Gintoki.

Than you need to cosplay as one of them next year, so that way we can get more Gintama cosplayers and possibly have a special get together, because I already have Gintoki finished, and even tho I cosplayed as him last year, I will cosplay as him for at least one day.

another good opening (am in animated movie mode right now is:

Prince of Egypt

I'll see, I only got 1 cosplay confirmed so far and was possibly gonna look into doing a Pokemon Gijinka aswell. (though I doubt that will be too time consuming.)

Darkwing Duck was awesome.
I never really liked the openings of the Disney Afternoon shows. They were just a montage of shots from the first season. I like shows that have a unique clip or animation used just for the opening. Or at least a new set of clips each season.

Azumanga Daioh did use existing footage in their opening but they didn't just make a montage with it, they editted it around their opening graphics.

LUCKY~
lol, i actually had a dream where i did that... =3= dreamtheif....
anyways, besides that, i have a particular love of...
the second opening to death note. Neon, violent, sexy, i pretty much died of awesomeness the first time i saw it,
Elfen Lied's OP. Forget the name (Lithia...?sumthinglikethat) of the song, but the calm, brutal-ish imagery perfectly matches the series,
and despite a few others racking up plays on my ipod frequently, i cant help but love Ready Steady Go, from FMA.
owo anyone else agree?

Remember when American TV shows had actual theme songs?  And not just a 5 second mini-teaser type thing at the beginning? mehhh.

It is the First OP from season one.  Of course you could just click the link and listen to find out.   ;D

Yeah, these two are probably my favorite two for driving along on long trips.  Get my blood pumping and my fingers tapping the steering wheel.

I'd thought I'd already replied to this thread, guess I didn't. Or was I erased???

Gantz, Cowboy Bebop, G.I.T.S. the Laughing Man series, Last Exile, Azumanga Daioh, Gad Guard, Vandread, Beck, Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, ...

I think only University of Maryland alumni would be fans of the original TMNT theme nowadays. Since a turtle is their mascot, and they play it every time the game stops in basketball at least. I have a story there.
Have Fun

I am especially fond of the first Death Note opening. I immediately loved the sound, and the animation is so symbolic. Now, when I listen to that song through earbuds, I turn the sound up(-ish) and pay attention to the bass, because for some reason, I always notice that.  ::)
I also love all the Kuroshitsuji openings, both songs, and every animation. I think they fit the mood of the anime. Is it sad that I can sing along with half of them as well?  ;)
The closing of Ouran is so inspirational too. The opening was nice, but the closing really spoke to me.  :D

For me, it'd have to be one of the three Slayers openings; it'd be hard to pick one out of the bunch.
