Week Ender - Universal Century Edition

Sep 19 // Red Veron
[embed]34282:5061:0[/embed] "Winners Forever" Anime: Gundam Victory Continuing with the 90's J-rock of its time, this ending song is quite good and catchy.   [embed]34282:5062:0[/embed] "Believe in the Starry Sky" Anime: Zeta Gundam The Gundam series loves using current pop music for its soundtrack and the song confirms that this one is very much form the 80's.   [embed]34282:5063:0[/embed] "10 Years After" Anime: Mobile Suit Gundam 8th MS Team A fun ending that stays true to the real "boots on the ground" angle of the show. The song compliments the ending well being about looking to the future with someone after everything currently going through the present.   .[embed]34282:5064:0[/embed] "Forever Amuro" Anime: Mobile Suit Gundam A pretty emotional ending while pretty solemn, it's captures the show's theme about being "real robot" show and leaning more on realism than fantasy like other robot shows of the time.   Is there an ending from the Universal Century that you like that isn't on here? SHARE IN THE COMMENTS BELOW! I wanna see!

[embed]34276:5052:0[/embed] "Stand up to the Victory" Anime: Victory Gundam A really good song that reflects the time it was made in the early 90's with the very J-Rock song of its era. Nicely animated opening as well.   [embed]34276:5053:0[/embed] "Shine in the storm" Anime: Mobile Suit Gundam: The 08th MS Team A different take on the series, focusing on the boots on the ground, this entry takes a good look at the war from the perspective of a military unit of the Earth Federation. Adds more 'real' to the 'Real Robot' genre that Gundam started.   [embed]34276:5054:0[/embed] "It's not Anime" Anime: Mobile Suit Gundam ZZ I have not seen much of this entry but I remember it fondly because of the song in the opening with the lyric saying that this "is not Anime".   [embed]34276:5055:0[/embed] "Fly! Gundam" Anime: Mobile Suit Gundam The opening of what started it all, this one has a very 70's song. Though it may look similar to all the other robot anime shows of that era, Gundam differentiated itself by not having super powered weapons that bordered the fantasy and that the robots themselves only felt like tools used as weapons along with the realities of war.   Is there a Universal Century opening that I didn't include here that you love? SHOW ME IN THE COMMENTS! I would love to see it!

Week Ender - Cyberpunk Edition

Sep 12 // Red Veron
[embed]34264:5043:0[/embed] "Distant Scream" Anime: Serial Experiments Lain A show that has complex themes about humanity and technology sure has a nice and chill ending. Not quite light, but it offers a bit of a nice breather after each episode. It also implies a lot of things but I don't want to spoil anything. Also, there is this totally creepy french-made website about this show out there that totally freaks me out with its weirdness.   [embed]34264:5045:0[/embed] "In Time" Anime: A.D. Police This ending features a very 90's J-Rock song that goes pretty great the sexy (yet tasteful) women in sleepwear. No surprising that this show has some fanservice being a prequel spinoff to the very fanservice-y Bubblegum Crisis series. I could totally listen to this ending's song for ages being that it gives me all the warm fuzzies from being a 90's J-rock song.   [embed]34264:5046:0[/embed] "All Alone With You" Anime: PSYCHO-PASS A pretty nice ending, offering simple visuals with a nice (literally visual) twist. Great song by EGOIST to accompany the focus on Akane, the main character. Good balance with the light and dark in this ending for the show.   [embed]34264:5047:0[/embed] "Lithium Flower" Anime: Ghost in the Shell: STAND ALONE COMPLEX I am rather fond of this ending, I was exposed to it constantly on Adult Swim when I was getting back into anime around 10 years ago. A great song to contrast the opening electronic song in Russian. That static stills in the ending also offer a bit of a bit of a different glimpse into the show's characters in other settings.     Is there an ending from a cyberpunk anime that I didn't include here?

Quite terrifying.     [embed]34253:5038:0[/embed] "Y'know" Anime: Bubblegum Crisis 2040  A remake of a classic from the late 80's this one was one of the first to explore the robots gone rogue.     [embed]34253:5039:0[/embed] "Rise" Anime: Ghost in the Shell: S.A.C. 2nd GIG I love this opening.

Week Ender - Big Sword Edition

Sep 05 // Red Veron
[embed]33794:4704:0[/embed] "Mask" By Aqua TimezAnime: BLEACH  This show has plenty of swords of all sizes, and it just so happens that the main characters has a big one as well. Pretty unique looking weapon that looks like an gigantic kitchen knife without the handle. [embed]34242:5032:0[/embed] "Waiting so Long"Anime: Berserk  A weird but pretty rad song that has its charm with the engrish singing and lyrics. It's got that 90's grunge rock going on that suits the dark mood of the show.   [embed]34242:5031:0[/embed] "Fukai Mori"Anime: Inuyasha  I never really got to watch much of this show but I do remember the big sword of the main character. I am also fond of this song because I always caught it at the end of Adult Swim and it sounded really good.   [embed]34242:5030:0[/embed] "Ruined Land"Anime: God Eater This season's newest show based on a game that has been long overdue for an anime adaptation for a long time now has some huge swords. These swords aren't just swords but are also big guns that also turn into large monster mouths that take a bite out of the enemy.   Did I miss any anime that features big swords?

[embed]34230:5025:0[/embed] "FEED A"Anime: God Eater TV I am really happy that an anime adaptation of this game finally hit airwaves. The game has been out forever and I always loved the visual style and the designs of the game. While this opening isn't as stylish as the video game openings, this one is still catchy. I don't know, it might grow on me. I'm just super excited that I'll be able to see cosplay from this show now. [embed]34230:5026:0[/embed] "BLUE BLAZE"Anime: BlazBlue Alter Memory I love the visual style of the games this anime is based on and the characters are just really good. Well, the main character of the show has a big sword as a weapon and is voiced by Tomokazu Sugita, who is my favorite voice actor. But yeah, those are the only two reasons I put this on here. [embed]34230:5027:0[/embed] "Black Rock Shooter"Anime: Black Rock Shooter TV An anime based on a popular fan art based on a vocaloid computer program mascot that is featured on a song based on the aforementioned fan art that is used as the song in the opening. Did you understand that sentence? Yeah, it's confusing but all you need to know is that the character has a big sword gun and a long katana. [embed]34230:5028:0[/embed] "TELL ME WHY"Anime: BerserkOf course a selection of anime about characters with huge swords is not complete without Berserk. Just go read the manga.

[embed]34207:5006:0[/embed]   "Gun's & Roses"Anime: Baccano! I haven't seen much of this show but this show links it up with Durarara!, another work by the same author Ryogo Narita. Set in the 1930s New York, this one features some characters in the mafia with some fantasy elements thrown in for a different twist. Totally diggin' that jazz song in the opening, totally matches the show.   [embed]34207:5007:0[/embed] "Magenta Another Sky"Anime: La Storia Della Arcana Famiglia Cool character designs, love the suits and that rockin' song to get pumped up to. Based on an otome game, I didn't really watch beyond the first episode but like the visuals of the show a lot.   [embed]34207:5008:0[/embed] "Romantic Summer"Anime: My Bride is a Mermaid An over the top comedy about a teen boy who has to marry a teen mermaid girl just so he won't be killed for knowing the existence of mermaids. Did I also mention that the teen mermaid girl's family happens to be an underwater Yakuza family? Crazy setting for a crazy show and the opening shows the craziness of this ridiculous romantic comedy.   [embed]34207:5005:0[/embed] "Renegade"Anime: Gangsta.This show just premiered this season and I haven't gotten around to see it but that opening is one super stylish one. Using minimal black in white with one color is a favorite visual style of mine. I might have stayed away from this one thinking it might be a reverse harem type of show like Arcana Familigia above but seeing this opening has changed my mind and I will check it out.   Did I not post about your favorite mobster-related anime opening?

[embed]34182:4993:0[/embed] "Heavenly Blue"Anime: Aldnoah.Zero I love the grand epic feeling that Kalafina brings to anime openings, they've had their songs featured on previous works by Urobuchi prior to this anime and they are a great match. I work out to this song because it really gets you pumped up for action, which you probably wouldn't expect something from a group like Kalafina.   [embed]34182:4994:0[/embed] "Karma"Anime: Phantom: Requiem for the PhantomAnother show on my anime backlog or 'Pile of Shame', this one got added to my ever growing list after I found out that Urobuchi had something to do with it. I am not really into super-serious anime but have enjoyed some of Urobuchi's works so I'll be watching this one soon.   [embed]34182:4995:0[/embed] "To the beginning"Anime: Fate ZeroAnother one I need to get to watching. Performed again by Kalafina, this one still brings in that grand epic feeling that washes over you unlike no other. Having Kalafina do the opening just bumped this up on my watch list. [embed]34182:4996:0[/embed] "Enigmatic Feeling"Anime: PSYCHO-PASS 2Pretty cool opening but nothing can really top the opening song "Abnormalize" from the first season even though this one is from the same artist, but it isn't just the same. Though the stylish as hell visuals in this opening makes up for it.Did I forget your favorite anime written by Urobuchi? Don't kill me out of nowhere!

I finally looked up the synopsis and found out it's set in the 90's so I'm definitely checking it out soon. I totally dig this song.   [embed]34158:4984:0[/embed] "Strike My Soul"Anime: Strike The BloodI often refer to the studio behind this anime as "poor man's SHAFT" (but in the best way possible) and this ending shows that well. It's simple and still has creative ways to give it some visual flair even with minimal animation.   [embed]34158:4985:0[/embed] "Shine"Anime: Hellsing  This song is so 90's. I love it. Pretty great to unwind to after an intense episode.   [embed]34158:4986:0[/embed] "scaPEGoat"Anime: Seraph of the End: Vampire Reign  Cool rockin' song that starts out slow and builds up suits the post-apocalyptic along with characters doing cool poses in the rubble. What dumb song title.   [embed]34158:4987:0[/embed] "Still Doll"Anime: Vampire Knight I kinda liked the manga but never really liked the low budget anime adaptation.

[embed]34148:4974:0[/embed] "X.U."Anime: Seraph of the End Let's start off with one of the newest shows about the vampires and post-post apocalypse setting. A standard shounen action show with an interesting setting, this one is set after a virus kills all humans over the age of 12 and vampires have taken all the young survivors as a source of food. As these young survivors get older, many of them organize to fight back against vampires using forbidden magic. Oh and adopted brothers find themselves on opposing sides for drama reasons.   [embed]34148:4975:0[/embed] "SPIRAL"Anime: Blood-CA favorite opening of mine from a show that didn't turn out so well, this opening and its song was the best part of the show since it showed off the good stuff. We get to see the heroine Saya, show off her gentle side to contrast her bloody red monster slayer side in this opening. Couple that with the awesome song, we get a song that gets your blood pumping for some bloody action that is plentiful in this show.   [embed]34148:4976:0[/embed] "Strike the Blood"Anime: Strike the Blood   A guilty pleasure of mine, this show is a supernatural action show with light harem comedy. Also them lolis. There's some elements that I like about these supernatural action shows, organizations using magic in modern day settings along with modern technology. This show has a lot of what I like.   [embed]34148:4977:0[/embed] "Logos Naki World"Anime: Hellsing   Here's one from the early 2000's US anime boom that a lot of older anime fans remember and love. This opening has that late 90's/early 2000's serious anime opening feel with the almost minimal music video feel to it. That song is pretty great too. I totally need to rewatch this one and the new adaptation.   So what's your favorite anime that features vampires?
