With the end of the year slowly approaching, I thought it would be appropriate to share some of my favorite OPs of 2013. My original list was quite long, so I decided to cut it down to my top ten.
To make things slightly more interesting, I’ve created a poll.
So sit back, relax, and enjoy ^^.
Yeah yeah, I know; I’m a Sakakibara Yui fanboy. However that’s not the ONLY reason I love this opening. The whole thing gives off a very alluring sense of mystery. I’m actually looping this one as I write out this blog post =D
Just a tad behind the OP for the original LxC, which funnily enough was sung by Sakakibara Yui. I love how they slip in some edge shots of HCGs.
The minor animations in this OP really appeal to me. If anyone has played this, please tell me if it was good or not.
Aedes and I reviewed this one recently. Seems like most people disagreed with our views though
I really enjoy how the lyrics appear in sync with the music. I’d really appreciate opinions on this song in particular because Aedes didn’t really like it. I believe he said that the singer sounds like a vocaloid or something.
I really like the starting of this opening in particular, where Azusa is featured. I can’t say that I fully agree with bringing in so many CGs from the last game into this OP, but the song is good.
Semi-nude shots of girls in magical girl outfits. Need I say more? Also the scene in the middle where they’re all transforming is just… =3
The effects in this one were excellent, but I suppose you lolicons out there had your focus somewhere else =p
Very little focus on the main heroines from the original game in this OP, which I suppose is appropriate given that they only have mini routes in this game. Also, call me old fashioned, but I love when OPs end with a kiss scene.
10) Green Green
The song and use of CGs for this one really captures the element of wacky comedy that I’m assuming the game is full of.
For those who watched all the above OPs, did you notice that quite a few of them had Cherry Blossum petals flying around?
Here’s the list of some of the OPs that didn’t quite make the cut. Unlike above, they are in no particular order.
- Lovesick Puppies -Bokura wa Koi suru Tame ni Umaretekita-
- Hyakka Ryouran Elixir
- Otome Riron to Sono Shuuhen -Ecole de Paris-
- Guardian☆Place ~Do S na Imouto to 3-nin no Yome~
- Grisaia no Rakuen
- Fureraba ~Friend to Lover~
- 3-nin Iru! ~Happy Wedding in Livingroom~
- Koi x Koi = Infinity ~Koisuru Otome ni Dekiru Koto~
- Girls Be Ambitious!
- Imouto no Okage de Motesugite Yabai.
Well I hope you enjoyed at least some of the songs I shared up there. Please feel free to share any OPs that you like, whether it be from eroge or anime, in the comments below.
