The opening to Ah! My Goddess is the audiovisual equivalent to a marshmallow peep. It's sugary and domestic and doesn't overstay its welcome.



Don't let the scrolling cast of characters fool you. About 85% of them never appear in the OVA.

My real answers were going to be Azunmanga and Lain, but those have been posted already, so...

Will I get thrown in jail if I post the opening to Evangelion? Probably, right?

Guess that only leaves...



Okay, but actually though...

If anyone has any good Prog/Arena Rock OPs, I'd love to hear about them.

Ryousuke Takahashi shows generally have good OPs:

Oh My Goddess got hilarious somewhere in the late 90s when Fujisawa realized he could get away with whatever he wanted so long as he stuck full-page shots of smiling ladies somewhere in there. The chapter they spent talking about the British motorcycle industry lingers in memory

There was a lead I wrote once for a review I never finished about EX-Driver, explaining that the series is the equivalent of a lowrider magazine or Import Tuner or Easy Riders, except that instead of Impalas and Latina chicks/hopped up Civics and Asian chicks/Harleys and redneck chicks, it is a precisely calibrated mixture of both the cars and the women that Kosuke Fujishima prefers to jack it to.

Shivers every time. Maybe a couple of tears.


Other shivers; excellent composition/editing. so very tight.


It's a good song with some gratuitous violence for the first minute, but around the 1:00 mark where it goes into the bridge and you see all these hopeless and lost folks going on living their lives; it's too much, man.

"You wa Shock!" is one of the most iconic OPs from that time period for a reason

Lupin 3rd - A Woman Named Fujiko Mine (NSFW, bewbs)

Shin Mazinger Z OP 1

Everyone else named most of the really good ones.

Mac Frontier OP 2 - Lion is also fun.

Giant Robo's OP is notable for establishing the entire setting in two minutes of narration and striking visuals. It convincingly implies so much about the world outside of what you actually see in the events of the show—like the menace of these fully-realized robots sourced from ancient Yokoyama manga the average viewer will never have read (which never appear in the show proper). And the sheer bombast of the Warsaw Philharmonic backs up that this could very well be the end of the world.

Just a tiny PSA, guys: a page with 30 YouTube embedded objects is... not really friendly on a browser. If someone posts multiple ones at once, please don't quote all of them back

Yeah, the opening for Last Exile definitely scratches that Sega Wow / Overworks RPG (Sakura Wars / Skies of Arcadia / Valkyria Chronicles) itch I've got right now

might help if I linked it

I'm going to come away from this thread with a list of anime I need to watch.

I don't think that was the intention of the thread. Oh well!

You're both good people, but Ample is the most good.

(That being said, Tumbling Dice gets bonus points for bringing to mind the savage fucking beatdown that ends that fight.)
