Fall 2014 Top 5 Anime Opening Theme

Top 5 Anime Opening Complete

We are right in the middle of the Holiday season, but we still wanted to share with you what we found to be the very best opening themes of this Fall 2014 Anime Season even if the post came out later than usual this time. We went through every new opening theme of the many anime currently airing and selected the ones we believed to be the 5 best according to specific categories: the quality of their song selection, the quality of the art and animation, the timing/synchronization between audio and visual elements, and finally the elements of story-telling or originality in the opening.

Summer 2014 Top 5 Anime Opening Theme

0-gate top 5 OP

Another season, another Top 5! This season was rather particular… Unlike the usual, there was no easy-to-find No. 1 and instead we just had a lot of very good opening themes that all seemed about equal in terms of quality. This made it extremely difficult to create a Top 5; first, we had to find what 5 opening themes were actually better than the rest. Then, we had to figure out which of those equally good openings would be higher up on the list. It was a difficult process, but we managed to come up with something that hopefully showed an accurate representation of the quality of each of these opening sequences. Without further ado, here are the 5 best opening of the Summer 2014 Anime Season !

Spring 2014 Top 5 Anime Opening Themes

0-gate top 5 OP

We are more than halfway through the season, and it is definitely time for us to take a look at the Top 5 Opening Themes of this Spring 2014 Season. We had so many good and great openings this season that it turned out to be really difficult to fit only 5 and to decide which ones were the best opening. The competition was ferocious and do not take it personally if your favourite opening isn’t on there; just assume it was the next one on the list (it really wasn’t though – you have terrible taste).

Summer Anime 2013 Top 5 Opening Themes

We are more than halfway through the season, and it is more than time for us to take a look at the Top 5 Opening Theme of this Summer 2013 Season. It might be summer, the renowned season of bad shows, but we had some surprisingly good anime and opening themes this time so sit tight and enjoy the best this season had to offer.

Please note that all new opening themes were watched, but only one opening per show was selected if more than one appeared during the span of the season (usually the first one shown was selected).

Top 5 Anime Opening Winter 2013

We are reaching the middle of the Winter 2013 Season! It is time to look at all the best anime openings of the season and to compile them into this Top 5.

This season was a lot weaker than the last in terms of both anime quality and in the openings themselves. The competition was not nearly as intense as last season, and I dare say that the last few positions of our top 5 would not usually deserve a spot in a top 5; they just got lucky this season. After lowering our criteria, we still managed to complete the Winter 2013 Top 5 Anime Opening, and here it is.

Fall 2012 Anime Top 5 Opening Themes

The end of season is closing in, and we simply thought we’d entertain you a little bit with this Top 5, one which we (ZeroGhj and Myst) had to debate fiercely to decide the best OPs of the season. When a season with so many gorgeous openings pops up, it’s hard to choose…

When we reviewed the openings, we took into consideration the choice of song, the quality of the animation and how well they both worked with each other. Whether you agree or not is a matter of opinion, therefore feel free to discuss in the comments how you think the top 5 should go.
