Top 10 Anime Openings of the 1980s

Nothing quite says fluff piece like the tried and true "Top 10" list. The "Top 10" list combines the pointless regurgitation of common knowledge with a ranking system. This helps to not only extol the author's perceived intellect, but to attempt to create a small sense of controversy to promote talk of the publisher of the aforementioned list. That said, I have compiled a list of what I view to be the best anime OPs to grace the 80s.

The first few titles that will be covered are the bastards among this list. Yes, these first few contenders are the honorable mentions, though the term is not used in the strictest sense. These titles all would have easily made the list, had it not been for one small problem: none of these are actually openings. These all take the form of insert songs or ending themes, and were thus ineligible (under my arbitrary stipulation) for the coveted and few ranked positions.


Evangelion 3.0 Q You Can (not) Redo Preview

Alright guys, it is that time again as another Evangelion movie has arrived. We are given a six-minute treat with beautiful animation. The video below does contain spoilers about certain plot points that are unique to the movies. At least to me, it felt Gunbusterish. Not that it is a bad thing for Eva to adopt a Gunbuster feel, but it is definitely there. I am looking forward to this movie.

Reports also show that the film's first day shattered all previous viewing records. Now, enjoy your preview.
