The Top 100 Greatest Anime Openings Of All Time: The Runner-ups

~ The Top 100 Greatest Anime Openings Of All Time: The Runner-ups ~

Anime openings… it’s only a short minute and a half long, but it gives us just that little glimpse of the big picture. The stories, the characters and the overall feel of the anime series can be presented so well (and entertainingly) in a minute and a half. Us anime watchers love those anime openings; whether it’s listening to the song, watching the animation sequence, or in most cases: both! Some anime openings are better than others in more than many ways… but which are the best of the best?

Well, here it is! The Top 100 Greatest Anime Openings Of All Time as chosen by you! The anime lovers, fans and fanatics of the online wonderland!
I’ve been collecting votes for about 2 months, and the feedback was extraordinary.
In a little under 2 months, we managed to collect a whopping 3473 VOTES!
That’s truly amazing! And I thank each and every one of you that voted! Thanks to you guys, I managed to create a list that truly separated the good openings from the epic openings.
Although I had absolutely no part in this list, it seems that my anime-music sense was spot on with the rest of the community; most of my favourite’s obtaining a spot in the top 100.

But there were hundreds of great OP’s that we all know and love that happened to miss out on the Top 100 by that much! So, I thought it would be right to list the OP’s that runner-uped on The Top 100 list, just because we can!
So here it is, #101 – #200 in a full list view! Try and see if you’re favourite OP was close to making the Top 100!

So close…!

Binbougami Ga! ~ Review

Binbougami Ga! ~ Review

“A hilarious tale that shows us the difference between real happiness and what you think is happiness”

This is another one of those anime series that looked good since it’s pictures and information were first released onto the Internet, and when I started watching the first episode, I knew straight away that this was a good choice.

Binbougami Ga! revolves around a schoolgirl called Ichiko Sakura (pictured above left) who lives in a very lucky environment; she is smart, cute and rich. Then one day, a strange girl with a bandage on her arm comes to Ichiko; her name is Momiji and she is a binbougami, or “the God of misfortune”. She tells Sakura that she has an extraordinary amount of Fortune energy that she has unconsciously been sucking up from other people, making her lucky and everybody else around her unfortunate. Momiji plans to steal some of this Fortune energy and share it with other people in order to rebalance the world. However, Ichiko is not planning to make Momiji’s job so easy.

The series is most notable for its use of parody on other manga; a perfect example is in this scene, the artwork being a clear reference to the series “Fist of The North Star”

Like the image above, the series uses many references and parodies many different anime series; some of which are very obvious, while some are very discrete. Thus, this series is perfect for those that get many of these references, and it will definitely make the series a hell of a lot more funnier than it already is. The most notable voice actor/actress in this series has got to be Kana Hanazawa who plays the role of Ichiko (most notable characters include Mato from Black★Rock Shooter, Mikan from To LOVE-ru and Kanade from Angel Beats!) who does an excellent job along with the other voice actors to create one hell of a funny show.

Binbougami Ga! is a hilarious show that contains many serious scenes and also teaches us the importance of what we perceive as happiness. However, this show will never cease to make you laugh as you progress in through the story. Like I said before, the more anime that you have seen prior to this series, the funnier the jokes and this entire series gets.


The Final Judgement:

Recommendation Level: 4/5 – Strongly Recommended

Final Score: 7.5/10
