End of the year means lots of retrospective bullshit. I hope your body is ready.

EDs/OPs in alphabetical order. Mostly because I don’t want to deal with any bitching about ranks.

 

Best EDs

Samurai_Flamenco_ED-Alt

 

 

Gundam Build Fighters

ED

N/A because Japanese copyright holders and Youtube are lousy sacks of shit.

Song

N/A because Japanese copyright holders and Youtube are lousy sacks of shit.

Reason: I like that hand-reachy thing in the beginning.

 

Hajime no Ippo Rising

ED (Super LQ)

Song

Reason: Cuz it almost made me want to watch the show. Hey everyone who fucking bitched to no end about me not reviewing it, maybe you’d have had more success if you weren’t the only ones to bother with watching it. How’s it feel being old?

 

Kyoukai no Kanata

ED

Song

Reason: Pigeons are the best of all the great birds.

 

Miss Monochrome

ED (Not like this normally; image fucked up to avoid copyright controls)

Song

N/A. I dunno if there’s even a full version out yet.

Reason: Cuz it’s a show about some Vocaloid. How the fuck would it not have a good ED?

 

Non Non Biyori

ED

N/A because Japanese copyright holders and Youtube are lousy sacks of shit.

Song

Reason: I don’t have to explain myself to you.

 

Samurai Flamenco (ED Alt, episode 10)

ED

N/A. I guess nobody was cool enough to upload this shit to Youtube. And don’t fucking look at me; I don’t have the time to deal with that shit.

Song

N/A. See above.

Reason: Yeah, it was a shitty segue from the end of the episode, and yeah, it was a fucking lazy 10 frame-ED, but goddammit that song was sugoi.

 

Sekai de Ichiban Tsuyoku Naritai!

ED

Song

Reason: This is proof the show should have been about stupid idol bullshit instead of fucking wrestling. Come on Japan, did you really think I could get off to girls screaming in pain for 24 minutes? I can’t fucking last that long.

 

Unbreakable Machine-Doll

ED

Song

Reason: Hype hype hype.

 

 

 

Best OPs

Coppelion_OP

Spoiler:

Calyrica

Dark_Sage

kokujin-kun

 

Whether you agree or disagree doesn’t really matter cuz these lists are objective fact.

LOL Thanks man :D

2ColouredEyes says:

Sasami-san and Mondaiji-tachi not included.
The spirit of Christmas cannot forgive you for this.

2ColouredEyes says:

Oh, and Railgun S too >:(

Dark_Sage says:

Yeah, those were great Fall 2013 shows, weren’t they?

2ColouredEyes says:

Best EDs/OPs of Fall 2013
Fall 2013.
Great! I knew something was wrong when those are not included.

Calyrica says:

I’m the best OP?

Awww, thanks~ <3

All seriousness? Best OP/EDs for this season are:

Tokyo Ravens OP – X-Encounter
Freezing Vibration OP – Avenge World
Strike the Blood OP – Strike the Blood

This season's music felt kinda blah to me tbh.

Dark_Sage says:

I’m with you on Tokyo Ravens, but Freezing and Strike the Blood’s OPs sucked.

Vanth says:

Best OP – Kyousougiga, Log Horizon, YowaPeda, Galilei Donna, Kuroko’s Basketball 2, Kyokai no Kanata, Tokyo Ravens.

Best ED – Kyousougiga, Log Horizon, Kyoukai no Kanata, Galilei Donna.

Dark_Sage says:

The only OP I agree with you on is Tokyo Ravens. Do you get off on boredom or something?

Vanth says:

Did you even check Log Horizon’s OP? It’s better than everything you’ve suggested. DATABASE RULEZ.

Kamica says:

>Implying nobody watches Hajime no Ippo
>Season one of the anime is ranked #313 on popularity ranking (myanimelist)
>Manga is ranked #150 on popularity ranking (myanimelist)

Dark_Sage says:

Hajime no Ippo: Rising
Score: 8.621 (scored by 3195 users)
Popularity: #1628
Members: 10,590

The only people who watched it are 30-year-olds clinging to the past.

Kade says:

Im 17 and i watch it but I only started it a while ago I was only 4 when the first season started

Starra says:

Miss Monochrome isn’t a Vocaloid. She’s a character designed (I think) and voiced by Horie Yui.

Dark_Sage says:

Close enough.

Kurt says:

>no DATABASE
ur tastes suck ass D_S

Nyangoro says:

Below is the list of people who both watch Hajime no Ippo: Rising and have opinions worth listening to:

sortitus says:

Kyoukai no Kanata: good themes, good visuals, meh everything else
Samurai Flamenco: the first ED theme I’ve ever preordered
Machine Doll: not a fan of it in general, but the intro/extro (“hai!”) were entertaining enough for me to merely skip most of the ED

Maybe I need to watch Non Non Biyori since a friend keeps gushing about it, but all she seems capable of saying about it is “cute”.

デートTIME has had a few clean versions on YT, but they’ve all been taken down within a week or two. All I can find now is a bad E4 chop job and some sped up/slowed down full length versions.

I also rather enjoyed Log Horizon’s ED. I admit that half of my enjoyment came from laughing at Yun*chi’s hilarious pronunciation of “zutto”. The closest word to her very clear “zueta” is “tsumeta”, so it became known as the “I’m full!” song at my house. The other half is just the sugar injection after the snooze fest that nearly every episode of Log Horizon has turned out to be.

Dark_Sage says:

Non Non Biyori pretty much only has “cute” going for it. It’s not really my kind of show, but if you like slice-of-life, you’ll enjoy it.

SamFlam’s ED song wasn’t bad. The ED itself was just lazy as fuck, so I didn’t put it up here. Same thing goes for Log Horizon’s ED.

Humanity says:

I like the Yozakura Quartet OP…

Dark_Sage says:

I liked the second OP better. It felt like I was watching an entire episode itself.

Humanity says:

I think it was the OP from the Hoshi no Umi OVAs. Y’know, if you were curious about that.

Dark_Sage says:

I actually was. OVA fiesta time.

Nyangoro says:

You were watching three episodes, actually.

For that episode, they played the opening of the three-part OVA series along with a montage of clips from said series.

They did it because the arc that the OVA covers takes place in between those two arcs in the TV series.

Dark_Sage says:

Whoa, what? That was actually a thing that happened? Fuck yeah, 2013 is saved!

Nyangoro says:

It’s called Hoshi no Umi. I think Sekinin actually just released a BD batch within the past day or so.

AnimeNOW says:

all quartets lead to the?

Dark_Sage says:

YZQ is my second-favorite show of the season, but the OP didn’t do much for me. I’d probably be more favorable of it if it didn’t shit out halfway through with the tone shift (right around the hiroiatsumeta/old man council time).

I actually wish the entire thing was just Hime walking around the cardboard cutout town with people appearing over the buildings and doing shit.

Best Ending :D

BamBam says:

>Not liking Hajime No Ippo

Site dropped.

Dark_Sage says:

I ain’t 40. What did you expect?

BamBam says:

“I ain’t 40. What did you expect?”

Good taste?

Dark_Sage says:

The show looks more generic than Naruto filler.

No thanks; there are more promising shows to spend 100+ episodes on.

Kamica says:

The fights are portrayed with a sense of realism. Generic couldn’t be farther from the truth.

Dark_Sage sticks to the currently airing shows with little to no exception. Because of work and site stuff and all that. But should you ever have a sudden desire to visit the classics, Hajime no Ippo should rank among the top of your list.

Isthis/m/? says:

m8 you trolling me right now?

Also
>not liking Ippo’s opening
>not listing Kamen Rider Gaim’s opening as the best of the year

Do you even Japan you filthy casual?

asterisk says:

Best OP: Shinsekai Yori OP.

sortitus says:

As much as I agree with you, check the post title again.

asterisk says:

As much as I agree with you, Shinsekai Yori has no OP.

sortitus says:

Eh, I knew it was missing one of them, but I assumed I was remembering which one wrong and rolled with it.
