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.
Come over to Fanservice FTW's Youtube Channel where I review Revoltech's Getter Robo Arc (Ah). Be in for a blast as a jaded mecha fanboy revels in this new figure.
Today Is A Beautiful Day. Granted, it's technically 1AM my time and I am tired like no other, but It Is A Good Day Nonetheless. Why??
Capcom Unity, Capcom's in-house social networking site, hosted a Mega Man birthday party and streamed it live to the internet, registering 80,000 unique visitors watching the stream by the end of the two-hour production. Keiji Inafune, creator of the Megaman franchise himself was present, as was Hitoshi Ariga, mangaka for the up coming Mega Man Megamix comic books -- which, confirmed as of tonight, will be published stateside by Capcom's main squeeze Udon Comics. There were plenty of other important Japanese people and I'm sure they had names but I was sharing a video stream with 79,999 of my closest friends...it was kind of choppy. I missed their names. My apologies.
So, what came out of this little event? What was the BIG UNREVEALED NEWS?!
