Glad that Bleach, Cowboy Bebop and D. Grayman made the list. I wouldn't call the Attack on Titan opening good, but it is very catchy. Plus the series is amazingly done, can't wait for season 2, so no doubt the opening was going to make it to the top 10.

Samurai Champloo
Tokyo Ghoul
Black Lagoon
Gundam IBO

and let's not forgot the coolest of all...

So.....NGNL season 2, when?

Looking forward to clockwork planet OP.

Well, a movie is coming. animenewsnetwork.com/news/2016-07-17/no-game-no-life-fantasy-light-novels-get-anime-film/.104415

Providing that does well, I think second season could come after that.


No Game No Life in the first season was a poor adaptation and finish was invented. Now they will adapt the novel 6 in a movie omitting novels 4 and 5.

I'm surprised that Gurren Lagann's opening "Sorairo Day's" isn't on the list because as far as Anime openings go it's one of the coolest. Cool

I actually have never seen some of those. But I can say that Rewrite beats every other OP of FMA in my opinion. The lyrics do match the situation of the story arc, the visuals are cool and the song is great.

I'm surprised that Oath Sign didn't made it, that was an awesome OP.

Also, I don't get it, why in these polls we never see Cruel Angel Thesis? I mean, it's probably one if not the most well known OP out there, and it's kinda cool too. Robots, cryptic flashing images and cool song do make for a great opening.

Coolest OPs? There are many, but off the top of my head Xam'd's OP "Shut Up and Explode" by Boom Boom Satellites was pretty cool.

Also, The Big O.

Wait FMA Brotherhood's OP1 "Again" didn't make the list but Golden Time the weakest song in the series did. SMH

Hmmm. I like No Game's opening a lot, but I don't know if I'd ever put it in my top ten. Abnormalize is good but I think "Out of Control" has more interesting visuals. I expected Tank, the Noragami and the Titan opening to be here. The Tokyo Raven's op is a pleasant surprise though. Show may be underrated but the sequence has some sharp direction. Other than that, never heard the others.


Personally I'd put Aquarion Evols first opening and Eden of the East's as my top choices.

No matter what, Re-sublimity and Guren no Yumiya will always be my two top favorite OP songs of all time!

Interesting that Noragami was the only one to get two songs in the top 10. I can't disagree since I find myself listening to both on a frequent basis.

So long earth, we're off to outer space.
Where there is better taste in OPs.

Agreed. Glad to see both Noragami's OPs here, because I absolutely loved its OPs, as well as the series. S2's OP was better imo.

To hopefully express myself better: The article claims to list the top 10 results, but lists 11. As of now (this post, not the one I'm quoting), the apparent error remains.
