If you’re an avid anime fan, then we’re pretty sure that you’ve got a few favorite songs or tracks from your favorite titles. One of the best elements that makes an anime series a sure fire hit, is it’s music. We find ourselves singing the theme songs to our favorite titles in Japanese more often than people might think, and if you’re a hardcore anime fan, then you know the Japanese lyrics to your favorite titles by heart. Since the 2000’s anime has been spreading like wildfire, and it’s music has touched the hearts of any and everyone who is a fan (old school and new school). On behalf of us here at D&A Anime Blog, here’s our Top 5 most popular anime openings!
Number 5 – Again (Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood)
We all loved the original FMA series as well as its opening title song, but Brotherhood took everything that was awesome about the original (while making it true to the manga), and made it epic! There will never be an anime convention where you won’t see an Edward or Alphonse Elric cosplay, and not start singing this song in your head.
Number 4 – History Maker (Yuri!!! on Ice)
This year’s hit series has made the sport of ice skating into quite a beautiful art form – not that it already isn’t by any standards. If you love the series then you also love the opening title, in fact if you were to head to youtube right now, there’s now doubt that you’ll find a playlist somewhere filled with videos of fans singing this song.
Number 3 – The Hero!! (One Punch Man)
Max as Saitama? Yasss, queen! The most powerful anime superhero deserves an epic title song as an anime opening, right? Well consider that job, done!
Number 2 – Resonance (Soul Eater)
Whenever T.M. Revolution comes into town, this is the most requested song out of all of his tracks. Why, because it’s used for an awesome anime title! (At least to us it is, and to many of you guys too.) You know an anime opening title song is popular when there are (approximately) hundreds of videos filled with remixes, fan versions, and acoustic guitar edits.
And Number 1 – Rock the Dragon (Dragon Ball Z)
You already know what this is! This is the most epic title song that has ever been produced in the history of anime openings! If you’re an old school fan, then you already know. If you’re new to the game, then you’re in for a treat! It’s only fitting that one of the most popular pioneering anime titles has the most nostalgic song that has ever been created.
So that wraps up our Top 5 for tonight. We’re pretty sure that there are some more anime opening songs that you guys go head over heels for (Ouran anyone?), so never stop listening and loving your favorite tunes from your favorite shows! 🙂
