Disco ain’t dead, it just moved to space.
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.
This is the story of one day upon which I was exposed to an ending song so catchy I was compelled to watch it for eight hours non-stop. This is the story of Soul’d Out and their japanese rap wizardry.
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.
Love can be a hard thing to come by. Hold it close, and it will never leave you.
The original television series adaptation of Hellsing may be hotly contested, but pretty much every-one agrees that it has a kick-ass opening
There could be no better way to lift the curtain on Eureka Seven than with a song as beautiful and freewheeling as the show itself.
I continue to believe that Heroman is one of the great underrated shows of recent years. In its own way, this fun ending theme shows why.
This week we’ve got an opening that’s truly FABUL…no, I can’t even bring myself to say it. It’s still pretty good though.
Let’s return to an old favourite shall we? While the most famous piece of music from Railgun remains its bombastic techno-pop opening, there’s something to be said for the quieter approach too.
How did such a bad show have such great music?
Come on. Come ON. You all know this one. Dance along.
How have we not done this already? Maybe we’ve just been avoiding obvious choices. And make no mistake, the FLCL ending song is one of the most obvious possible choices for a feature like this.
With a show as flamboyant and camp as Star Driver, you’d expect an opening of equally dazzling silliness, some sort of big, camp power ballad. Instead though, the show went in entirely opposite direction and is all the better for it.
I can’t believe it’s taken this long, but we’ve finally reached one of my favourite OPs of all time. The original Cardcaptor Sakura OP is an iconic classic, which is surprising consider that it’s, well, a very simple song.
We’re going back to another old favourite this week as Marlin has already looked at Azumanga Daioh‘s famously eccentric OP. Me, I’ve always tended to prefer the ending, the marvelously relaxing ‘Raspberry Heaven’ by Oranges and Lemons
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.
After a few months on hiatus, OP/ED Op-Eds is back to highlight the best opening and closing themes. This time, we’re going to look at the closing sequence to the 2009 mystery-thriller Eden of the East. An excellent show in its own right, Eden of the East had a great, modern urban sensibility to it, something that’s…
Pretty much all of us at the GLORIO crew agree that Attack on Titan’s spectacular OP is one of the best of the season. Or if not the best, it certainly made the greatest impression. And of course something so ridiculous would lead to parodies. So we decided to compile a list of our favorite…
Sorry folks, the rest of the GLORIO crew is still pretty busy these days so it’s up to me to bring you guys your weekly dosage of OP/ED Op-Eds: 90s Edition. This week’s feature is a bit of a borderline case, being a 1999-2000 show, but what the hell, I’m including it anyways. Prepare your…
