OP Up! Love is Love Edition

Jul 01 // Red Veron
[embed]34020:4880:0[/embed]"Kimi = Hana"Anime: Junjou RomanticaI know nothing about BL anime so I'll just comment on this opening. I like the song in this opening. Pretty minimal in the budget but you don't really need that much for an anime about pretty dudes holding hands and getting close.[embed]34020:4881:0[/embed]"Hanaji"Anime: Maria HolicA pretty crazy opening and it's from SHAFT, the studio that makes crazy looking stuff. Visually striking with all the colors blending in with the minimalist style that studio employs, along with using painting as a theme (like painting stuff, not art). A fun and weird one to watch.[embed]34020:4882:0[/embed]"LΦvest"Anime: Love Stage!!I must apologize that I am not familiar with BL and this show, so I will comment on the opening. I really like this opening; it's pretty, the character designs are great, and it shows off the show well. The show involves the main character, Isumi, who is a very androgynous guy who actually looks to cause some pants confusion, and Ryoma, a guy who fell for Izumi while Izumi was dressed up as  a girl ten years prior to them meeting again.[embed]34020:4883:0[/embed]"I've been waiting in that forest"Anime: Yuri Kuma ArashiA crazy show that a need to finish watching, this one is about a bears gaining intelligence equal to humans and rising up against humanity. Somewhere along the line, lesbian bears happen. It's a crazy premise but it is a visually beautiful show and is a never ending source of insanity.Did I not post your favorite opening from a boy's and/or girl's love anime?

Very creative ending and most of the art featured are made for the ending and not just lazily taken from the show.[embed]34003:4866:0[/embed]"In beyond dark"Anime: Gunparade MarchStarts out all solemn and sad but gradually changes to something better give you some hope in this rather dark show about humanity on the brink of extinction.[embed]34003:4867:0[/embed]"Faith"Anime: Silver Will ArgevollenThis ending has some of cool imagery of mecha on the battlefield blowing stuff up while not forgetting about the boots on the ground that keep the mission going on. Something we rarely seen in these shows about operations involving complex machinery are the people keeping things running. [embed]34003:4869:0[/embed]"Enter Enter MISSION"Anime: Girls Und PanzerDon't dismiss this one as just another 'moe' show or one about "cute girls doing cute things", this one is more about "cute girls doing cute things while awesome tank battles happen" kind of show. Conceived by an author who likes tanks more than cute girls, the cute girls in this show only serve as a medium to deliver cool tank stuff and tank battles. Try this show if you like tanks.[embed]34003:4868:0[/embed]"Laterality"Anime: Jormungand: Perfect OrderHer name is Coco and she is loco.

Week Ender - Foodie Edition

Jun 20 // Red Veron
[embed]33970:4833:0[/embed]"Become a smile"Anime: Gourmet Girl GraffitiBy far one of the best food oriented anime in recent years, this one combines food with the insanity and beautiful detail by anime studio SHAFT. Cute girls eating appetizing anime food never gets any better than this show and this ending is a great way to show those aspects of the show. Highly recommended if you like: SHAFT, food, and cute girls.[embed]33970:4834:0[/embed]"Sunday"Anime: Yakitate!! JapanA fun and educational ending with a live action cooking with making some delicious looking bread. I am starving as I write these little paragraphs.[embed]33970:4835:0[/embed]"Spice"Anime: Food WarsDesigned to whet your appetite for food and "other things", this is an upbeat ending with a catchy tune alongside colorful visuals.[embed]33970:4836:0[/embed]"Formula of Smiles"Anime: Ben-ToA more laid back and gentle ending to contrast the over-the-top action featured on the show.

Week Ender - Making Music Edition

Jun 13 // Red Veron
[embed]33944:4807:0[/embed]"Konna ni Chikaku de"Anime: Nodame CantabileA pretty great ending featuring a song by half-Korean/half-African American music artist Crystal Kay, whose pop RnB music gives you an enjoyable ending and something different for an anime featuring classical music.[embed]33944:4808:0[/embed]"NO, Thank You!"Anime: K-On!!The second ending to the one of the shows that popularized the "cute girls doing cute things" genre while delivering some great music on the side, the song featured in this ending has a more rock edge compared to the other songs in the show. Probably my favorite song from the show that isn't pop-centric.[embed]33944:4809:0[/embed]"Tutti!"Anime: Sound! EuphoniumKyoto Animation, the studio that animated this show, has begun the tradition of trying to make endings as a vehicle to popularize characters from their shows (as well as the voice actresses of those characters). This all started with K-On!! (featured above) and KyoAni seems to not be stopping anytime soon.[embed]33944:4810:0[/embed]"Don't say LAZY"Anime: K-On!!I take it back about the other K-On!! ending above, this song is also a favorite of mine.

Despite the grammatical errors, it's still pretty catchy and fun to sing.[embed]33936:4802:0[/embed]"Utauyo!! Miracle"Anime: K-On!My favorite opening from this show, it combines a frenetic pace with an equally energetic song while not forgetting to be cute. This opening also captures the feel of the spirit of high school girls with the silly things they do in the opening.[embed]33936:4803:0[/embed]"Allegro Cantabile"Anime: Nodame CantabileMy favorite opening out of this week's selection, this one is has it all: a lively and catchy song, attractive visuals all in a neat a simple opening.

Where did the high school part go? I want to see that one. Perhaps their saving that as a final series or movie.[embed]33905:4775:0[/embed]"Shining Sky"Anime: Vividred OperationNot exactly a magical girl show but still has the elements that define the genre with things such transformation sequences and otherworldly forces trying to take over the world. From the same minds as Strike Witches, this show provides a bounty of booty close ups as well as crotch close ups in lieu of the bare pantsu seen in Strike Witches.[embed]33905:4776:0[/embed]"Moonlight Densetsu"Anime: Sailor MoonThis is the first ending for the original adaptation of the Sailor Moon.

May 23 // Red Veron
[embed]33872:4752:0[/embed]"Sticking Places"Anime: Yu-Shibu:I Couldn't Become a Hero, So I Reluctantly Decided to Get a JobA fanservice-heavy show that had a nice premise that didn't get that developed in the first season (which is how these things based off light novels always turn out to be). The long titled show is a fun watch for those that like the fanservice and waifus that this show generously provides the viewer. More focused on a story it tries to tell rather than a workplace comedy that one might expect from the title.Lots of fanservice in that ending.[embed]33872:4753:0[/embed]"Oracion"Anime: No Game No LifeA fuzzy and warm-feeling inducing ending song that is a nice touch to the often exciting episodes of the show is a nice breather, except for that one scary one that got spooky.[embed]33872:4754:0[/embed]"Ringo Biyori~ The Wolf Whistling Song"Anime: Spice and WolfA pretty cheerful song that sounds like it was made by a bearded old man who happens to be music artist in the late 60's, this one is matched by the really amusing story book images that accompany it.[embed]33872:4755:0[/embed]"Watashi no Houseibako"Anime: Outbreak CompanyIn this quite cute ending, we get to see Petralka act all adorbs while wandering around by herself  oncastle grounds. We get to see more of this part of her in this ending since it's the 'dere' part of her Tsundere character where 'tsun' takes precedence.[embed]33872:4756:0[/embed]"Tsumabiku Hitori"Anime: The Devil is a Part-timerA laid-back ending with Chiho mostly just chillin' and being pretty, a great contrast to the lively and high-tempo opening song.So is there an ending you love that I missed?

I think basketball is a great sport that translates well to anime with all speed, technique, the direct one-on-one nature of the plays. I am really glad to see the sport see a resurgence in anime and manga, and I like how all the pretty boys in this one is attracting women to the sport.[embed]33817:4727:0[/embed]"Ah Yeah"Anime: Haikyuu!Great song with a more retrospective style with clips of stuff that happened in past episodes.

Minimal animation but does the job well.[embed]33817:4729:0[/embed]"Blaze Away"Anime: EyeShield 21Because a reader brought up this show in the OP Up!, I just had to include this one. I did watch this show waaaaay back in the day but dropped it when they were in Houston (which is where I lived) and got turned off at how they portrayed it as some Japanese suburb (dumb reason, right?).
