Have you ever gone on to watch an anime because you heard and liked its opening? Hearing Nichijou's OP was what convinced me to watch it, for example.
Aquarion and Log Horizon.
That's the reason I watch most of my anime's OP.
Arakawa Under the Bridge.
Horizon on the Middle of Nowhere
I was so fucking lost when i started that
I didn't fully comprehend what was going on until season 2.
Sure. OPs got me started on watching subbed anime.
This and Date a live. And they were both shit, sad.
Entertaining shit though
I'll give you that.
Sometimes I think I was watching Kill me Baby for the OP/ED.
I've watched far too many shit shows simply because I was drawn in by their OPs/EDs.
Maximum creepy piqued my interest
Kill Me Baby ED got me to watch the show. Pretty good, but the ED is still my favorite part.
How much disappointed by the real thing were you?
I started watching Mikakunin because I loved the OP/ED after seeing them posted in OP/ED threads. It's my favorite show this season too and I probably wouldn't have watched at all if I hadn't fallen in love with the OP right away. It's not even that it didn't look interesting, I just sort of missed it. I was already watching a lot this season and I thought I had Nisekoi and ImoCho for RomComs.
It was okay, I guess. I read the VN later, which was a lot better.
Quite a few times
>Shana 2nd season OP
>Sora no Woto OP
>Hell Girl ED
>BRS PV OVA was meh, TV was terribad
>Rozen Maiden OP
>Ga-Rei Zero OP very disappointing
They don't always meet my expectations, but it's usually a pretty good indicator.
Oh gosh. Sweet Drops is one of my favorite songs ever, not even just anime related. The piano arrangement is probably in my top 5 most beautiful songs. The anime was one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen too. I also enjoyed the manga, but if you want heartwarming the anime is hard to top.
Black Rock Shooter, obviously because of the song and the OP. It was better than I expected.
Also adding to this Kemono no Souja Erin
Its still on my backlog, but I added it because the OP.
Guilty Crown anyone?
I'll never have a beautifully illustrated daughteru
and you don't seem to understand
guilty as charged
The show is amazing, the ED aswell.
The OP was okay, but the part where she goes "Sometimes, we girls are strong, but sometimes we're weak" always pissed me off so fuckiong hard. Fuck feminists. That is the logic they go by. I know that the opening isn't focused on anything, so interpereting it like that is extreme of me, but I still am pissed off by it.
Jesus Christ, /v/.
I've been to /v/ like 3 times. I am just strongly allergic to opinions
I heard the Shakugan no Shana opening so I decided to watch it. Why is that show so boring?
Sadly second cour ruined everything, even the opening.
Yeah, I watched Dirty Pair based on the TV OP
Also Kill Me Baby based on the ED
The piano version has no lyrics to over-analyze.
Tell my that isn't fucking beautiful.
>Kill Me Baby based on the ED
That seems to be a popular one. Thrice already in this thread. That ED really is great, but I don't even think it's the music so much as the dance and all the things the dance got crossed into. My favorite is watching 3D people try to do it.
The actual anime itself was mediocre.
Everyone is someties strong and sometimes weak, I don't see a problem
Lucky Star's opening bassline made me watch it
No. I love Magical Knight Rayerth's opening. I have it in FLAC in a couple of versions. But I won't touch that lesboshit anime with a mile long stick.
I was disappointed.
Party v& pls go
>Magical Knight Rayerth
I should've posted a link, most summerfriends probably don't even know what I'm talking about. I keep forgetting I'm on neo/a/.
In relation to anime with foreign OPs I tried this because of the OP. I was disappointed of course.
Picked up bakemono because of this. Didn't even make it to this OP. Dropped it after Snail's bit. Easily the most boring show I've ever watched and I loved the first few episodes of Lucky Star.
What's it like being illiterate?
You went and did it.
Now the shaft defense force will come in to shit up the thread.
Because I think it's boring? What does that have to do with my supposed inability to read? Sorry I didn't like your favorite anime, anon.
not the OP
Nichijou, Nerima Daikon Brothers and Arakawa Under The Bridge
>Log Horizon diappointing
I don't like the OP at the much though.
Well I wanted to avoid jojo's because I didn't want to become one of those jojo's guys but then I saw this combo video
Marathoned the anime in 2 days.
Now I'm at part 4 of the manga.
Battle Programmer Shirase
>The full OP got taken down
I got into the monogatari series because of Renai Circulation
That's basically the best part of the movie.
Some chick did an English version of this on Youtube, and it was actually pretty good.
I ended up watching the show because of the insert song by lotus juice.
This was the video that I saw first.
Made me want to be the father my father wasn't.
Manga ending not so much
I love these openings. Sometimes I listened to it few times per episode.
Still 8 episodes left to watch.
That's all I remember watching because I liked opening.
I also picked up Nadesico because of the Gekiganger 3 song
Don't regret picking up either of those, even if Shirase was rather repetitive.
bure bure bure bure
Dude, the shaft defense force is on it's way. Everyone abandon thread.
Bakemono is boring. Renai Circulation and Hachikuji are the only good things about it.
This isn't the thread to show off how butthurt you are over things, nobody fucking cares. Post an OP or cry elsewhere.
>The shaft defense force is on the way!
>30 minutes later
>no shaft defense force
Worse than shaftfags.
I'm furthering discussion. I picked up bakemono because of Renai Circulation and I was disappointed. The only one butthurt here is you getting mad that I didn't love bakemono. I'm sorry that you prefer a circle-jerking hugbox where everyone just posts things and then posts some nice comments about those things, but this is /a/ and that's not what happens here. If you can't handle some dissenting opinions, you don't belong on the internet, let alone 4chan.
TL;DR you still didn't post an OP. Go whine in a different thread, kid.
Oh no, now my feelings are hurt!
You're a faggot.
I watched Princess Tutu thanks to this AMV. Is that bad?
They apparently are, since you keep replying in desperation and love Bakemonogatari (which I didn't even like to begin with) to the point of forcing a conversation about it since this post of yours >>102208091. Well aren't you a miserable kid, huh.
I get the hate over AMVs, but there are good ones too, so I don't think that's too bad if the AMV you watched was well done.
>arguing with someone on the Internet means your feelings are hurt
Jesus Christ, is this how delicate children are these days? Do you literally shit your pants every time someone raises their voice at you in real life?
>replying in desperation
Yeah, fuck me, I'm desperate to have some conversation on /a/ instead of just dumping links and fishing for up votes to stroke my frail ego.
Give up, you're just looking like an idiot now. You were told and you have nothing to hold on anymore, your attempts of comeback are just sad.
>you were told
I wasn't though. You're still just afraid of dissenting opinions. Good luck with that. Tell me some other anime you like so I can tell you what I don't like about them? Maybe this could be a good opportunity for you to grow as a person.
You keep replying, it's funny. Reply once again just to prove my point countlessly, if shitposting that hard makes you feel happy.
You just replied to me. Clearly this means your desperate. And a kid. And [insert names that will hurt your feelings here]. Now I win the Internet fight!
Heh. Say one bad thing about Shaft and a thread is instantly derailed. Every time. Great job I guess.
So you do enjoy self-humiliation when you clearly know you have nothing in favor to prove your "arguments"?
>Kemono no Souja Erin
feel guilty you and a small researched got me to another series.
>mfw the shaft hatebase is worse than the fanbase
This thread isn't about showing off how shitty your taste is (which if it was, you'd be a great example of cancer shitting the board), feel free to shitpost and humiliate yourself with the rest of the Kyoanus lickers here: >>102175431
Or you can post an OP you like without making yourself look like a complete asshole.
How am I humiliating myself? You have yet to do anything other than call me names. You haven't even bothered to try to discuss the redeeming qualities of bakemono. You just got mad when someone didn't like it and started calling them names from illiterate to kid. If anyone if humiliating themselves it's you because you're so afraid of dissent that you resort to name calling immediately instead of trying to have an actual discussion. You think that arguing with someone on the Internet means your feelings are hurt. You keep replying to me saying "I win. You lose" in different ways in continued attempts to make it seem like you've won some sort of debate. But there hasn't even been any debate. I just said I didn't like something and you called me names.
This isn't a thread about Kyoanus, its shitty shows or its animation. What's so fucking hard about this you still didn't understand?
Hah! Way to look even dumber. That anon was on your side, dipshit.
And if your reading comprehension can't get even worse, I'll quote myself from >>102210088
>(which I didn't even like to begin with)
Just to make you look like a retard mad over chinese cartoons again.
What the hell does KyoAni have to do with this? You're so riled up on the defensive now that you're attacking the wrong people and talking about things that no one even mentioned.
>I can't read threads, please rape my face
>And if your reading comprehension can't get even worse
What? Dude.... This is some of the most pathetic shit I've seen on 4chan all day and I was on /pol/ for a few hours.
>quote post that says "Shaft hatebase is bad"
>reply to it as if you were replying to the person hating on bakemono
>post k-on reaction image
>suddenly I'm a Kyoanus licker
So now I'm only allowed to use images from shows I like?
Sorry. I apparently hurt his feelings so badly by not saying something nice about Bakemonogatari that anon can't even read anymore. He thought you were me. He's just calling you names because that's the only way he knows how to deal with dissenting opinions.
I watched Attack on Titan's opening several times over. I think there was an anime behind some of the ops.
Why are you so upset, anon?
And just so you know, I'm not "the Shaft hatebase" at all. I just listed them in my top 3 favorite studios earlier today in another thread. I prefer older Shaft to newer Shaft, but that's mostly because I tend to think the modern Shaft backgrounds designed by failed architechture students are distracting.
I just didn't like Bakemonogatari. That's all. And I only mentioned that because someone posted Renai CIrculation and I said that's what got me to pick it up, but I that was disappointed. Then someone got knickered knackered that I posted a dissenting opinion in his hugbox and a few name calling posts later, here we are.
i only watched this anime for the ED
Worth it. Beautiful OP for a beautiful show. Became one of my favorites of all time.
Typical SHAFTfag being a dumb fuck.
If you can't even follow a simple sentence, how do you expect anyone to believe you find depth in the dialog and shows SHAFT produces? You don't, you just like to glorify pieces of shit to seem intelligent and that's called being pretentious, sir.
Because 4chan isn't more of a circle-jerking hugbox. It upsets me to no end. I'm literally crying because someone offered anything other than praise for something I posted on the internet. It's impaired my ability to read and now I'm probably going to think about killing myself because anon said some mean things about me.
Unless I've heard a lot of good things about the series, I don't really get into a show if I don't like the OP/ED.
What exactly is Yuuko expressing by her gesticulation in that gif?
God damn, man you're retarded. I don't like Bakemonogatari, if you don't like it either, why are you making this whole conversation about it?
I see, must be hard. Why don't you leave then? You're clearly devastated over people laughing at you on the internet.
>he thinks that's me
Heh. Bakemono is boring AND you're dumb.
and you don't seem to understand
No, but I have for seeing a character from a show. Happens all the time. The only reason I decided to watch K-on was because of mugi
Sarcasm. I really thought it was obvious. Maybe they really should come up with a sarcasm mark....
>Bakemono is boring
Yes, agreed, and? You don't like thing, and? Why do you enjoy acting retarded constantly?
>j-jokes on you guys, I was just pretending!
Go cry elsewhere, no need to lie now. Not even your "sarcasm" excuse can save you now, you really are angry.
I just said that so you'd know who I am. The person you quoted wasn't me. And the person you called a KyoAnus licker wasn't me either. I think that guy was on your side at first too, but then you were a total baka and he thinks you're stupid now too.
No really. I was making fun of the person who got mad that I had an opinion. "circle jerking hugbox?" Come on. Would anyone actually say that seriously? Do people actually say this about sites they visit as some sort of positive thing...? Please tell me they don't.
I watched Henneko after playing the thousand maps of its OP in osu.
>The person you quoted wasn't me
Yes, I know, and then the shitposting from you was supposed to die from that point. But no, you must keep forcing off-topic for the sake of more shitposting, it's so fun, right?
You're not convincing at all. Why do you keep crying, though? Is anime that much of an impact on you for you to get upset over it and then insult everyone on the internet?
i love this
Yes. Yes it is. It's the only thing I have left, anon. I'm going to go lick some Kyoto Anus now so I'll let you get back to your hug box. Bye bee!
I didn't really ask what you liked, but you sure are a self-centered crying baby. Maybe tumblr fits you better, not here.
This thread looks like two retards arguing but it's actually like 5
What is going on?
This is what happens when someone has an opinion next to someone who's afraid of dissent.
This is what happens when someone doesn't like thing and shows how mad they are for no reason and then refuse to post on-topic because they're brain damaged.
Actually this just always happens when someone says something bad about Shaft. For some reason they've got one of the dedicated defense forces on /a/.
I don't give a shit about shaft, you on the other hand...
I don't get it though. Like seriously, say some shit about KyoAni and nobody jumps to their defense and I know from that earlier thread that a vast majority of /a/ posters love KyoAni. What is it about Shaft that makes people want to defend them so hard?
Whoa. I'm not that guy. I'm just saying this always happens. Talk shit about Shaft, get hit by the Shaft defense force.
intros and outros are the worst shit about fucking animes. Theres no reason for them being 1+ minute long each.
I am proud of you my son
Would you rather have 8 minutes of ads like in America or 3 minutes of music?
Shaft hatebase is usually the side that brings up the topic in the first place though. They bring up how much they hate shaft in threads that have absolutely nothing to do with it, like this one.
But...there hasn't been any "Shaft Defense Force" activity in this thread. It is more like someone complained about Shaftfags who had not made their presence known, someone complained about that, and that lead to this whole idiotic mess of a discussion.
In Japan they have both.
That doesn't add up. There's definitely more comercials on American TV. You can see that just by looking at Space Dandy this season. Cartoon Network cuts out the ED and does a short OP to make room for more commercials but it fits in a half-hour block same as the Japanese version.
22 minute shows with interruptions for ads every 5 minutes
24 minute shows and most of the ads are inbetween shows and not obnoxiously interrupting the show in the middle
I watched Joshiraku based on the ED.
Same here. I learned a lot of neat cultural things from that show, but a lot of it went over my head to. I also wonder how much of the script was just re-written entirely.
Id rather have the ads. The best intro in a show that ive seen recently is breaking bad where it literally just says the title over what maybe 5-10 seconds max? Plus not like it matters since I torrent the fuck out of everything I watch, but for anime the intro and outro is always going to be there and its usually some jap bitch who cant sing so its like nails on the wall, log horizon being the worst offender since you can hear the outro playing right before the episode ends.
Back in 2004 I thought that OP was the shit, and so the anime must be good. I couldn't have been more wrong.
If you can't stand Japanese voices then why do you even bother watching subbed anime?
>Id rather have the ads.
I can't wait til we have radio stations that just play everyone's favorite jingles and tv stations dedicated to "the best" commercials. It's probably not far off now.
what got me to watch AoT was partially guren no yamia, also partly I was looking for any a anime to watch so that a friend and I would have something to talk about.
I picked up Mirai Nikki because I liked the OP, but eventually dropped it.
unofficial extended versions are the worst, make this stop
Vietnamese does really look like Irish sometimes.
