Have you ever noticed that during an Opening and Ending of an Anime, the animation will usually follow the song in terms of rhythm, beat or music style?
Anyways, in this article, I’ll be commenting on the uniqueness and significance of Anime songs in my life.
Here are some of my all time favourite openings in terms of song and Anime. (Not in order)
My Pace Diaoh – Genshiken
World End – Code Geass R2
Virgin’s High – Sky Girls
Catch You Catch Me – CC Sakura
Bamboo Beat – Bamboo Blade
Eternal Blaze – Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha A’s
1000% Sparking (Version 4) – Negima! (I love Happy Material also)
Now, there are tons more openings and endings I love like Cruel Angel’s Thesis from Evangelion, Driver’s High from GTO, Motteke! Sera Fuku from Lucky Star, Bouken Desho Desho from TMOSH, Sekirei from Sekirei, the theme of Read or Die TV. But, instead of listing songs, it’s time to get to the main topic:
I’ve been wondering how are Anime openings created? I suppose the openings are animated after they have decided on the song, but it is amazing to see how much effort usually goes into creating an opening.
But whatever the case, do you enjoy Anime songs? I personally find Anime songs to be so much more meaningful and relaxing to listen to than your run of the mill average English song.
When ever I listen to a song, for instance, World End, I think about Code Geass. The association of the song to the Anime is undeniably strong.
Anime songs are important to me as they really help me to relax.
Even if I don’t understand the words, I find myself enjoying them to the fullest as well. Perhaps it is the magic of Anime… Who knows? And perhaps, this works the other way around as well. If you like an Anime, you’ll probably like the songs as well.
Strangely, I find myself drawn to the opening songs of Anime rather than the endings or insert songs. Though some ending songs are simply gorgeous: HARE HARE YUKAI ANYONE?
So, what do Anime songs mean to you and what are your favourites?
Now that the article is over, I really hope to update my blog more often. Now that my March common tests are around the corner, I should really be focusing more on my studies.
Yeah… As if that will happen… Anyways, more updates or articles soon to come. Strangely enough, I seem to be able to write better and have a more fluent train of thought when I’m typing in DC.com’s upload box. Will be porting some previously written issues over to my blog as I really feel that there are some issues that are worth discussing.
Oh, yeah. These are my latest reviews over the past few weeks: Do check them out if you haven’t done so yet! (!!!SHAMELESS PLUG ALERT!!!)
I also have been wondering if I should actually post the video reviews on my blog as I make them. I could use the blog as an avenue to give more information, closer details and behind the scenes stuff.
Will do a Fraulein VS. Figma post very soon.
