What's a really good opening.

Really good: Nice art or nice music or leaves hints of the plot without spoiling anything OR all 3.

An opening that I find extremely good is Evangelion's, it's super catchy, and has a bunch of subtle hints.
The art isn't really good but the way it all fits together and works with the music is amazing.

I really love Elfen Lied's OP. Slow dramatic singing with ominous latin lyrics, gorgeous art inspired by Klimt. Brings a tear to your eye without you knowing exactly why. It's a thing of beauty.

It shows all the characters, the song is catchy as hell, it portrays the spirit of the anime which is a comedy anime.

Portrayal of all the main characters
Fun Op for fun show

You made a thread about OPs then decide to let your preconceived notion of them bias your opinion. I don't care what you think of EL, the OP is good. Your taste is shit.
>>
>>100640133
I listened to the OP and didn't like it. Feel free to voice your opinion on the stuff others post.
Did no one ever teach you that people might have different views from you? Did I call your opinion shit? No I said I didn't like it. Please take this immature attitude somewhere else.

I was in an Opening thread last week and it was fun. I felt like starting it up. Shouldn't have done it while Europe's asleep. US apparently is just full of susceptible babies.

One of the best OPs ever.

I'm also a sucker for whenever there is animation of the MC walking to the beat. When Space Dandy did it in their OP, I was just as pleased.

Pretty much the only ones I can agree with.

Welcome to The NHK has a pretty captivating OP, but since that's mentioned often, why not look into this OP instead. I think the SZS ops really did a good job fitting each shift in tone the series decided to pursue.

I hated Mirai Nikki (sorry Yuno lovers, it wasn't my thing) but I think the OP was standout.

Whoever composed the sequence with the doll's arms bleeding gets a gold star for edgy.
