OP/ED Op-Eds: The Best of Spring 2017

We’re somewhere vaguely halfway into the Spring season again, so here we are again to tell you which opening sequences and ending themes we didn’t skip after the first episode this time around! This time around, hamburgers, holiday pictures and HEAVY METAL.

OP/ED Op-Eds: The Best of Winter 2017

We’re past the halfway point of this season already, which means it’s once again time to pick our favourite anime song of the season. With JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure absent from the lineup for the first time in what seems to be forever, the path is clear for a larger variety of songs to be featured, most of which from shows probably no one’s even watching.

OP/ED Op-Eds: The Best of Fall 2016

With the season far from more than halfway over, it’s time to once again take a look (and listen) at our favourite songs from shows that have been airing for the past few months. The lineup of bloggers recommending their pick may have shrunk a bit, compared to the past couple of times we did this, but on the other hand, This will be the first OP/ED Op-Eds in ages that won’t ask you to listen to the same song twice. Hey, I guess this season was just that good? Not much of a consolation, but eh, we’ll take what we can get. Anyway, this time around, I namedrop a bunch of artists you should ask your dad about, Artemis gets another reason to fawn over Yuri!! on Ice and Jel is most likely on drugs. Again.

OP/ED Op-Eds: The Best of Summer 2016

With the season more than halfway over, it’s time to once again dig into our favorite songs from shows that have been airing for the past few months. Said lineup includes an anime by Yuzuru Tachikawa, the new prodigy of opening sequences, so expect the Mob Psycho 100 to show up a lot on this list. Otherwise, there are still cooking classes, fighting dreamers, and the smoldering depths of hell. Don’t bother counting to 99, and dive right in!

OP/ED Op-Eds: The Best of Spring 2016

With the season more than halfway over, it’s time to once again dig into our favorite songs from shows that have been airing for the past few months. While our Winter 2016 slate was impressively diverse, it seems the crew have pretty much converged on the best songs en masse this time round. Still, since it’s been a really good season for OPs and EDs that’s not exactly a problem.

OP/ED Op-Eds: The Best of Winter 2016

I saw snow when I looked out of my bedroom window this morning, so winter feels far from over. Nevertheless, we’re well past halfway into the Winter anime season, which means it’s time for us to select our favourite anime songs of the current season. Better check them out before they get thrown off YouTube, because with the a lack of a clear victor, this season’s lineup is a diverse haul of new talents and old friends ready to boost you all the way back to 2004. Or 1986. Or 1928. Seriously, are Asian Kung-Fu Generation still a thing?

OP/ED Op-Eds: The Best of Summer 2015

Bad news: Summer is over. Worse news: Summer season is not yet over. As you might have been able to tell from the dearth of content, the current anime load-out hasn’t really managed to swipe us off our feet. A more satisfactory review awaits you in a few weeks, but now that we’re halfway through the season already, the members of our merry crew have had more than enough time to pick their favourite anime song of the season. That is, if they even watched anything at all this season.

OP/ED Op-Eds: The Best of Spring 2015

‘Tis finally the season for annoying summer hits, so let’s all stay inside and reflect on the good old days before the calypso beats took over. Only it’s not the early 2000’s anymore and this is an anime blog, so the music isn’t going to be that much better. Especially since this season has been positively gasping for decent shows and decent songs to go with them, so don’t be surprised if you’re going to get a bit of déjà vu from this here feature. For what they’re worth, these are our favourite anime songs from the past season.

OP/ED Op-Eds: The Best of Fall 2014

We’re back a bit earlier this season with that feature where I can pretend to write for Pitchfork again, and in grand music industry tradition, we’ll start picking the best song of the season already when the season’s still going on, just to get it out of the way before the yearly wrap-up content.

OP/ED Op-Eds: The Best of Summer 2014

Summer is generally the least interesting period of the year in the world of music, yet I must say I was pleasantly surprised at the sheer amount of enjoyable anime songs this season. I suppose the guy running many a voice actress’s lackluster soprano through Protools deserves a break as well. In any case, it’s time to select the best of the best as the season comes to its end.

OP/ED Op-Eds: The Best of Spring 2014

It’s the end of yet another anime season, so amidst all the final impressions, we also try to choose our favourite anime theme songs of the season. This proved rather exceptionally hard this season, as not one, but two songs were picked by two different people. I had no idea we had such unanimous taste over here. Then again, maybe we just didn’t watch enough anime this season, and that should probably tell you something.

OP/ED Op-Eds: The Best of Winter 2014

It’s the end of yet another anime season, so amidst all the final impressions, we also try to choose our favourite anime theme songs of the season. As usual, we get a wide variety of crazy songs from a wide variety of crazy shows, but to my giant distress there’s an awfully scary amount of weird early noughties synth metal. Oh my.

OP/ED Op-Eds: The Best of Summer 2013

Well, the summer is over, but we have one last memory to share. We all love our endings here if you haven’t noticed, so here’s our thoughts on the best Opening or Ending of the season. Normal OP/Ed Op-Eds will return soon once we iron out the new schedule.
