Openings. the visual jewels that prepare us for what's to come for different series. good or bad they give us a taste of what's to come so I thought i'd make a thread to see people's thoughts on them. what's their favorite or least favorite or just what they think about other people's opinions on openings.

To get this started i'll share my favorite anime opening and see what you guys think of it ;)

I was about to post Death Parade's opening, but then I clicked that link =P. That awesome op is literally the reason I started watching the anime.

Three I like off the top of my head:
WataMote op (the music itself is K, but I like how the lyrics and animation work in the context of the series)

Barakamon (it's just really nice):

Rurouni Kenshin, second opening: I mean, it might be partly because of nostalgia, but I love this opening (and the full version of the song is even better imo).

Don't forget to remove the "s" from https in the url if it's there.

At the moment? It would have to be the opening for the new Gundam series, which happens to be sung by the same people who did Log Horizon's OP as well...
