Top 100 Greatest Anime Endings Of All Time: #60 ~ #41

Top 100 Greatest Anime Endings Of All Time: #60 ~ #41

When we talk about anime endings, we’re talking about that 1 minute 30 seconds that closes off the awesomeness… or sometimes crappy-ness… of the episode that you just happened to watch. While you wait for the preview of the next episode, you delve yourself into the ending song and ending animation of the series that you love or hate. Much the same with anime openings, anime endings are just as important; the way that an anime ends each episode leaves a different impression on the anime until the next episode, whether that be good or bad.

But which anime endings are the best of the best?
Well, here is what the people of the online anime community has decided as being the Top 100 Greatest Anime Endings Of All Time! I did a similar Top 100 list with Anime Openings (check that out if you haven’t yet!) in which we received a ton of votes. This time, we have received a total of 2371 votes! That’s not as many as we received for The Top 100 Anime Openings List, but that is still a LOT of votes; enough to make a pretty accurate list.

So here, I present to you #60 to #41 in the Top 100 Greatest Anime Endings Of All Time!

“A slice-of-life anime that’s so ordinary that it’s awesome”

Yes, here is yet another slice-of-life anime for you to feast your eyes on. I have seen many people saying that they dislike slice-of-life anime’s due to its lack of “story”, which I can tell you right now is complete bullsh*t. Whether you like slice-of-life anime’s or not, there are a countless number of them being made and loved by many people. In fact, many famous and well-acclaimed anime’s such as Lucky Star and Nichijou are nothing but slice-of-life. But here is one that is just so ordinary that it is probably one of the cutest series you will watch.

The Top 100 Greatest Anime Openings Of All Time: #100 – #81

~ The Top 100 Greatest Anime Openings Of All Time: #100 – #81 ~

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.

Well… without further ado, let’s start presenting the Top 100 Greatest Anime Openings of All Time!
I have spit the list into a number of parts (to gain a little tension effect) so for this post, here is #100 to #81 in the Top 100 Greatest Anime Openings of All Time!

“A hilarious slice-of-life anime full of cute girls and girls-love action!”

Quite a girly looking picture, don’t you agree? Well, this is because this series that ‘m about to review (or introduce if you haven’t yet seen it) is in fact, a yuri based comedy/slice-of-life series. You may be wondering, “what is this Yuri you speak of?”. Well then, let’s get onto the synopsis of this hilarious series, then we will run down on the technical stuff. All you need to know for the moment is that this series is very funny and deserves the viewers attention.

Sankarea ~ Review

Sankarea ~ Review

“Zombies have never been cuter and more enjoyable to look after”

“Oh great… another zombie anime!” Yeah… well… shush. Actually, yes I may say that this is a zombie anime, but that s merely the outside cover of it. And you know what they say: never judge a (anime) by its cover!

Sankarea revolves around Chihiro Furuya; a high school kid with a strange fetish: zombie girls. He has loved watching zombie films since he was little and has always wanted a girlfriend who is a zombie. Following the death of his pet cat Babu, he attempts to revive him using a strange book that he found at the temple he live in. Working alone in an abandoned building one day, he meets Rea Sanka (pictured above), who has escaped from her house where she is constantly repressed by her overprotective father. She attempts to then commit suicide by drinking the “revival potion” that Chihiro has made, in the end failing to kill herself. Then one day, Chihiro witnesses Rea moping with his father at the top of a cliff; in a sudden turn of events, Rea falls to her death. But she is not dead, rather she comes back to life as zombie and it is Chihiro’s responsibility to look after her new “zombie girl”.

The anime can almost not be classified as a zombie series; rather, a romantic comedy involving a zombie heroine

Hearing that this series was another zombie series, I was turned onto it straight away (I’m a fan of zombie series for some reason), but I soon learnt that this series was quite different; almost not a zombie series as all. However, this was more or so a pleasant surprise as the series shifted into a ore romantic comedy series. The story is very unique compared to other romantic comedies as you don’t often see zombie in romantic comedies (if you know one other than Sankarea, comment below. I will be very interested if there is one), thus this series ranks highly on the originality scaling.

With the animated series spanning only 12 episodes (and 2 OVA’s to this current date), many fans speculate as to whether there is going to be a second season or whether we are left with an inconclusive ending. Many believe there will be a season two soon, but we can only sit and hope. Nevertheless, Studio Deen did a very good job on the overall execution of the series (in case you are wondering, Studio Deen has done such notable series as Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni, Seitokai No Ichizon and Hell Girl).

All in all, Sankarea is a very unique, interesting and feel good zombie anime that will make you wish you had a zombie girlfriend like this.


The Final Judgement:

Recommendation Level: 4/5 – Strongly Recommended

Final Score: 8/10
