Talking Chase's Great Anime Opening Expo 1

Okay, elsewhere, I have covered opening music, but this time a gogo, I think we (me and my new AnimeSuki pals) should cover the entire experience: visuals and music. URLs are embedded within each listing, so enjoy. ;D

---

Honorable Mention 1. Love Love?, 1st Opening, "Love" by Miyu Matsuki, Sanae Kobayashi, Sayaka Ohara, Mayumi Yoshida and Kiyomi Asai
  • Chase's Notes: "Firstly, I really-really don't like the opening to Cowboy Bebop, so it's not an oversight. Love Love? is a fun show, with a fun/perverse opening that makes me wince a little. But damn it, it's entertaining. Therefore, an honorable mention.

    If there's hair on her head -- then it's okay to shag her in the bed. :-X "
Honorable Mention 2. S-CRY-ed, 2nd Opening, "Reckless Fire" by Yasuaki Ide
  • Chase's Notes: "S-CRY-ed has one of my favorite bits of opening music. However, I really do dislike the show, and thusly, just a mention."

Chase's Individually Glorious 11 Anime Openings

11. Karin, 1st Opening, "scarlet" by BRACE;d
  • Chase's Notes: "I adore Karin, and love the music, but the somewhat goofy ending of the opening kills it for me (and yet, I know it's relevant to the show)."
10. Naruto, 2nd Opening, "Haruka Kanata" by Asian Kung-Fu Generation
  • Chase's Notes: "Another instance of where the song is better than the opening. At the ending everything comes together, but the beginning starts off very slow."
9. Naruto, 5th Opening, "Seishun Kyosokyoku" by Sambomaster
  • Chase's Notes: "The cinematography at the beginning gets a nod, as well as the syncing of music to action."
8. Hanbun no Tsuki ga Noboru Sora (Hantsuki), 1st Opening, "Aoi Koufuku" by nobuko
  • Chase's Notes: "Yes, I know: It's new series, but I love it, so shut your blowhole. Hantsuki gets a high placement just for the portion where the feathers are rising in the air."
7. Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, 1st Opening, "Inner Universe" by Origa
  • Chase's Notes: "Beautiful animation. They could have gone the route of many-an-anime, by having an opening with simple flashbacks or include basic animation, but instead they did the show justice by rendering such a gorgeous opening."
6. Ghost in the Shell: SAC 2nd GIG, 2nd Opening, "Rise" by Origa
  • Chase's Notes: "Think of my thoughts on the first opening, but to a much grander elaboration. For some reason, I adore the parts where Motoko is split into televisions and the very end when she turns her head. It is probably because it's dramatic, and I am drawn to drama. ^_^"
5. Naruto, 4th Opening, "GO!!!" by Flow
  • Chase's Notes: "A great ratio and synchronization of action and music. The latest Naruto opening has poor animation, but luckily, it's previous works were much better."
4. Fullmetal Alchemist, 2nd Opening, "Ready, Steady, GO!" by L'Arc~en~Ciel
  • Chase's Notes: "I've watched this opening so much that the song has become rather irritating. However, this opening is splendid, in all regards."
3. Paradise Kiss, 2nd Opening, "Lonely in Gorgeous" by Tommy
  • Chase's Notes: "Yes, a rather new (newly departed) series with a well-developed opening. Lonely in Gorgeous has a great flow to its sound that is almost hypnotic and compels one to watch through the opening."
2. Evangelion, 1st Opening, "Cruel Angel's Thesis" by Megumi Hayashibara
  • Chase's Notes: "This wasn't chosen solely due to my love of the series. The opening is dynamic with significant bits of text embedded within the art."
1. Fullmetal Alchemist, 4th Opening, "Rewrite" by Asian Kung-Fu Generation
  • Chase's Notes: "Featuring one of my favorite songs of recent memory, this FMA opening is just magnificent. From the direction in the beginning (and throughout), to the timing, and the score. It's just an extraordinary opening, and would do justice for any series."

"Lonely in Gorgeous" is the first and only OP of Paradise Kiss.
Same goes for "Rise" in GiTS: SAC 2nd GiG.

I will probably have an Ending Expo up within the week.

P.S.: YoshiZumi, "Real Folk Blues" will definitely be on the list.
