If you have the hobby of watching anime, chances are you have more than just a few anime openings spicing up your music playlists. Maybe even a full soundtrack album! I have a few that I have and listen on repeat but these, in particular, are perfect for those of us who need something soft and relaxing.
What makes anime openings special is that whenever we listen to them, we get transported to a moment in the anime itself. We get to feel and experience the fictional world that we love again through its beats and melodies. These songs can invoke our feelings of love, adventure, passion, grief, and hope. These songs play with all our emotions and we love them for it!
So here’s a list of the best anime openings that I’ve had the pleasure of listening to.
Best Anime Openings
Angel Beats! OST | “Ichiban No Takaramono” | by kakuta
Of course, Angel Beats is first on this list. It’s gorgeous and the soundtrack is even better!
Tasogare Otome x Amnesia OST | “Requiem” | by Nao Hiiragi
Kotonoha no Niwa OST | “Rain” | by Motohiro Hata
5 Centimeters Per Second ED | “One more time, One more chance” | by Masayoshi Yamazaki
Fate/Stay Night ED1 | “Anata ga Ita Mori” | by Jyukai
Black Blood Brothers ED – “Shinkirou” by LOVEHOLIC
Romeo x Juliet OP | “Inori ~You Raise Me Up~” | by Lena Park
If you haven’t watched the Romeo and Juliet anime, I HIGHLY recommend it. It has a twist on it, similar to Snow White with the Red Hair, and is one of my favorites!
Zoku Natsume Yuujinchou ED | “Aishiteru” | by Kourin
Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo OST | “Kawara nai Mono” | by Oku Hanako
Dareka no Manazashi ED | “Sore de Ii yo” | by Kazusa
