Most anime have really good opening and closing themes. What are your favorites?

My favorite openings include Cruel Angel Thesis(Evangelion), Kimi no Mamade(Comic Party), and Trust(Vandread).

My favorite closing themes include Heart of Word(Rurouni Kenshin), Katachi no Nai Machi Mezashite(Comic Party), and Himegoto(Vandread).

01-14-2002, 06:32 AM
<font color=2670A8 face=tahoma size=2>I like Cruel Angel Thesis', too. But that's it. I usually fast forward on the opening and the closing themes. xD

<B>Edit: Now that I think of it, sometimes the start theme in Fushigi Yuugi makes me feel like dancing. o_O. And the theme from Gasaraki's pretty good (Message 9, I think).

01-14-2002, 08:02 AM
Boa (Serial Experiment Lain) forgot the title ;_;
Cruel Angel Thesis (Evangelion) I luv that song xD

and that's it... I usually stop watching the anime before the ending begins... ^_^

01-14-2002, 08:23 AM
..I liked the opening to Record of Loddoss War...and Shadow Skill....I would love to have those two on either...vhs..or I would MANY others...

01-14-2002, 01:57 PM
Opening themes: Velvet Underworld (Weiss Kreuz) and Super Drive (Gravitation)

Closing themes: The GW USA ending theme.. I dunno if it has a name XD

Gah.. I dunno much else XD

01-14-2002, 10:21 PM

I just have to nominate Sobakasu, the first Rurouni Kenshin opening. When I first heard it I kind of jumped. And I cannot forget my teacher's face when he was forced to listen to it. Or how we sat on a bed and tried to understand all the lyrics... Fun! I tell you, fun!
And when my sister watched the first episode and heard the song "in that moment I really thought you had gone insane."

Oh yeah!

01-19-2002, 12:50 AM
Opening theme: Gravitation, evangelion, Sailor Moon(it's very cute)
ending theme: cowboy bebop ^_^

01-19-2002, 01:13 AM
Well, this is it:

opening:Gundam-W and Gundam-X also Evangelion(I like their cute voice.;)

Ending theme: Well probably, Rurouni Kenshin.

01-19-2002, 03:55 AM
I like the opening theme to Iria Zieram the animation the best from what I've seen

01-19-2002, 05:39 AM
well, for my favorite, i'd have to go with kenshin by default since i can't really think of any other one that i even remotely like.

and by the way, the original dragonball has by far the worst ending music, that song makes me want to go on a killing spree every time i hear it.

01-19-2002, 05:46 AM
My favorites would probably have to be:

Opening: Outlaw Star

Ending: Cowboy Bebop

01-22-2002, 07:55 PM
opefavourite opening would be Neon Genesis Evangelion's, for closing theme, i'd choose Flame of Recca's second one.... ;)

Shadow Star
05-24-2004, 11:52 PM
My favorite opening theme would have to be "Hemisphere" from RahXephon, and my favorite ending them would have to be "real Folk Blues" from Cowboy Bebop. I also like the opening theme to Witch Hunter Robin.

05-25-2004, 10:38 AM
Favorite opening:Freckles from Kenshin
Favorite closing:1/3 Purehearted Emotions from Kenshin

05-26-2004, 02:07 PM
Well, my current favourite would have to be the opening theme to Last Exile - Cloud Age Symphony, by Okino & Shuntaro. It's like a Japanese version of New Order, but with a very Celtic beginning. Awesome stuff.

Other anime opening and ending themes I also like are:


Sakura Saku - Megumi Hayashibara (Love Hina)
Kirari Takaramono - Kumuko (Love Hina Again)
My Heart, Your Heart - Goddess Family Club (Oh, My Goddess! OVA)
Over the Fantasy - Kana Ueda/Nobuo Uematsu (FF Unlimited)
Tank! - Seatbelts/Yoko Kanno (Cowboy Bebop)
Message #9 (Gasaraki - I can't remember the composer and/ or performer however...).


Over the Sky - Hitomi (Last Exile)
Be For You, Be For Me (Gothic Lolita Version) - Chinastu Itoh (Love Hina Again - episode 2)
Congratulations! - Goddess Family Club (Oh, My Goddess! OVA)
Try To Wish - Nittoku Inoue/Nobuo Uematsu (Ah! My Goddess the Movie)

Hmmm... I guess I like the opening from To Love Ru even if it weren't for its ecchiness :D. Guess creators had a nice and original idea. If it's not original you're welcome to correct me ofcourse.
For the closing theme, I liked the Sailor Moon R, the one with Otome no Policy in the background.

07-31-2009, 02:36 AM

'Yakusoku wa iranai' - Maaya Sakamoto from Escaflowne (gives me nostalgic goosebumps).
'Inner Universe' - Origa from Stand Alone Complex (is amazing).
I also really like the OP for 'Durarara!!' at the moment. By Theatre Brook, I think it's called Uragiri no Yuuyake.

As for ED themes, well, it has to be 'Mad Surfer' by Asai Kenichi from Bleach, even though the English lyrics are a bit mad and nonsensical. Still that song reeks of 60s cool! Oh, and I also loved Rewrite by Asian Kung-Fu Generation from Full Metal Alchemist.

Kozakura Simpkins
05-08-2010, 12:56 PM
Did I mention 'Shoujo S' by Scandal? From Bleach again. Esp. since the OP credits show Rukia, Rangiku-san and Orihime shaking their thang.

05-11-2010, 10:42 PM
I don't believe i actually have a favorite opening, but my favorite ending would have to be the second ending in Turn A Gundam called Moon. The presentation and the art behind it is so beautiful.

05-12-2010, 06:13 AM
I love The Real Folk Blues from Cowboy Bebop. I especially like it more once I finished the series, I felt like it meant more. And although it's not technically a favorite, anyone who say's that when Tank! is playing, and they aren't getting pumped up for the upcoming episode of Bebop is a liar!

Stray by Steve Conte (from Wolf's Rain) is also great for an intro piece. When I first heard him, I hated him. The more that I listened to his works, the more I liked him!

Yakusoku Wa Iranai from Vision of Escaflowne is another favorite intro number.

Edit: Although cheesy, I absolutely love "I'll Give You Romance" the English dub ending to the original Dragon Ball! I sing along every time!

06-13-2010, 01:27 AM
My favorite opening is Futatsu No Kodou To Akai Tsumi by ON/OFF from Vampire Knight, and my favorite ending is Strength by abingdon boys school from Soul Eater.
