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?

Week Ender - Military Edition

Jun 27 // Red Veron
[embed]34003:4865:0[/embed]"Never Dying Flower"Anime: Full Metal Panic!A nice ending featuring some photos of the cast strewn around a table until you realize that these are probably recon pics. 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. She is also an arms dealer.Is there an ending to a military-related anime that I didn't put on here? SHARE IT ON THE COMMENTS BELOW! I wanna know.

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.

[embed]33964:4823:0[/embed]"LIVE for LIFE ~Ookamitachi no Yoru~"Anime: Ben-ToAn over-the-top show about fighting over discounted supermarket boxed lunches sounds as good as it's ridiculous premise. Think of a battle anime but people are fighting over cheap dinner but with martial arts moves and other techniques.[embed]33964:4824:0[/embed]"Comet Cloud"Anime: Yakitate!! JapanAn anime about a boy out to make a national bread for Japan who also happens to have "solar hands", where he has hands warmer than that of a normal human's hands. A fun and educational show that happens to also be a competitive shounen action show but fighting is done through cooking.[embed]33964:4825:0[/embed]"Dramatic"Anime: Honey and CloverNot exactly a show about food but this opening features some appetizing food as well as it is fun to watch.[embed]33964:4826:0[/embed]"The Song of Hope"Anime: Food WarsThe latest of this season about cooking and competing in making food in a cutthroat cooking academy where the main character is a genius teen cook.
