My favourite anime openings ♥

Ever since I can remember, anime was a part of my life and it still is. As a little child, my uncle and my brother would watch them with me and we played the scenes. Back then in Germany, animes aired on many TV channels and all of them had a German dub. One of the things I always enjoyed were the openings. To this day, I believe you can tell if the anime is good by the opening. At least that's my experience. Today, I'd like to show you my 10 favourite openings. Actually, they aren't in a specific order or anything, I just really like them all.

The Vision of Escaflowne

The Vision of Escaflowne was one of my favourite animes when I was a child. The opening is awesome and the song fits perfectly to it. However the German version is so much better than the Japanese one! Still one of the best openings ever made.

Paradise Kiss

Tommy february6 was my favourite singer for a long time thanks to this opening. I still love it and the song represents the atmosphere of the anime perfectly. I think it was also the first Japanese song I knew by heart. I like to call the time I watched Paradise Kiss my "Poupée Girl" period because I was really interested in fashion and played ameba's Poupée Girl daily until they shut it down. I still miss it and next to LL!SIF, it was the best game I ever played. RIP. 

Ore no Imōto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai


Before Love Live came into my life, Oreimo was my favourite anime and ClariS was my favourite girl group. A few years ago, I had an accident and couldn't move for a few days and I watched both seasons non-stop. I guess Oreimo was my medicine because I forgot the pain while watching it. However, it's my second favourite anime.

Puella Magi Madoka Magica

It's ClariS. No further information is needed. But I wish the anime was more like the opening.

Love Live! School Idol Project

Everyone knew that Love Live won't be missed in this list, right? Everyone knows how deep my love for this anime is and even my friends who don't know anything about animes know that Nozomi is my waifu. I re-watched it many times and I never skip the opening. It's the CUTEST thing ever! Just look at all the precious girls, singing and dancing in frilly outfits. How could someone not love them? If you haven't watched the anime yet, go and do it, you won't regret it!

Kimi ni Todoke

If you like shoujo animes, then you will love Kimi ni Todoke. It's funny, cute, innocent and romantic. The perfect mixture. Even my brother, who doesn't like shoujo or girly things at all, loves it.
The opening is super cute and I think the song is very soothing. It makes you want to relax, drink a tea and watch the anime.

Ore Monogatari!! (My Love Story!!)

I started the anime because I thought it would be similar to Kimi ni Todoke. It's not but I was not disappointed. You can describe it like Kimi ni Toke: funny, cute, innocent and romantic - but it's completely different though. Still hoping for a second season!
The opening song reminds me of MAY'S and it's really according to me taste. It's just so funny when Takeo pulls a face, if you ask me.

Himouto! Umaru-chan

I talked with my family and we all agree that this opening is basically about me. Indoor Umaru is me. Ok.

Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne

As a child, Jeanne or Marron was my idol. In my view, Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne is still Arina Tanemura's best work. As most of the animes I watched as I child, I prefer the German version over the Japanese. It just sounds kinda false to me if it's not the German singer. He has this wonderful accent (or accentuation?) when he says some words, for example "geheimnisvoll". Does anyone of you know the cartoon Miraculous Ladybug? I watched a few episodes and the plot is very similar, I think.

Dragonball Z

Click here for the Opening

Aaaah, the feels. When I was little, Dragonball Z aired on RTL2 at 8.15 PM and you could find my brother and me in front of the TV, in our pyjamas, with brushed teeth, ready for bed just to be allowed to watch DBZ. It was our show. And Trunks was my first anime crush.
All the Dragonball openings were great but DBZ is my favourite. Just as in all my childhood animes, the German version wins the price.

There are also other openings I really like that didn't appear in the list. If you'd like to check out some more, then have fun with X/1999 (I don't even remember the plot but the opening is amazing!), Ranma 1/2, Digimon, Pokémon 1-8, Shin Chan and Super Sonico.

I hope you liked my favourite anime openings and I'd love to know about yours! Have a magical day.~
