My Favorite Anime Ending Credits!

Happy Sunday and welcome to finally another blog post! These past couple of weeks have been crazy with my weird work schedule and then I also got sick… but now I feel so much better and ready to get back in the normal groove of things! And what better way to get back into it than do an anime blog post! A little while back I did “My Favorite Anime Openings” and today it is time to show you my favorite anime endings! You know that feeling when you just went through an intense episode and it ends and goes to the credit screen and just all the intensity disappears with the beautiful song and animation that goes with it. These are the anime endings that either gave me that feeling or I loved the song so much that I had to look up the whole song and listen to it on the regular… or even both! With these types of posts, I usually do a countdown but all of these anime ending credits deserve the number one spot so I couldn’t put them in a specific order. With that being said let’s get right into it!

Bleach Ending 2 “Thank You!” by Home Made Kazoku

The first ending is from Bleach. As you know, I used to really love Bleach and this was from one of my favorite seasons. Rukia is taken by the Soul Society and Ichigo and his friends are set off to rescue her. So in the ending credits I feel the song “Thank You!” fits perfectly because it is Rukia’s way of thanking Ichigo for coming to her rescue and being a true friend even though she has accepted her fate and punishment for her crimes. This brings me so many of the nostalgic feels when I hear this because it reminds me of my early anime days. I couldn’t find a video of the actual anime ending credits but here is the song so you can hear the song.

Hunter X Hunter Ending 5

This year I finally got around to watching Hunter X Hunter. If you read my blog post “Let’s Get Chatty// Good Endings and New Beginnings”, you heard some of my thoughts and feelings about the show, but this post isn’t talking about that. Before I got to season 5 I was happy with each of the seasons. The show had little to no filler episodes so each episode was jam packed with a lot of story and character build which I loved. So of course I was excited to get drawn into a new season. But after seeing the first couple of episodes I was drawn away from it because it took a turn on a more creepy level and I wasn’t really ok with one big ant eating humans. I was about to give up on the series all together. Luckily I was encouraged to watch more and I thought since I came this far, I shouldn’t give up on it now. I am so glad I continued to watch it because this season became one of my favorite seasons in the whole show. And to bring it all together there is a wonderful anime ending credits that bring all of the season together. And the song is great as well! I don’t know what it’s called because it is in a different language but I listened to the full version and it is wonderful.

Death Parade Ending “Last Theatre”

The anime that I am currently watching is Death Parade. I was honestly first drawn in because I fell in love with the anime opening credits but really wanted to know who these characters were and what they were up to. I also learned early on that this anime is very depressing (deals with lots of death) so I had to pump myself up to watch this anime. Now that I have started watching, yes it is very sad and very intense, but it is still so good! I’m over halfway through the anime and it’s starting to get into the real intense stuff. Anywho, I was delightedly surprised when the ending credits started to how much I loved it. The intensity in this song matches perfectly to the anime and the main ending animation really does fit the anime itself. Once again, I had to look up the full song because it is so beautiful. If you haven’t seen Death Parade and are wanting a very intense anime (it has already made me cry once) you should watch it, it is so good! I can’t wait to see how the ending is.. So please no spoilers! 🙂

Black Bullet Ending “Tokohana” by Nagi Yanagi

The last anime ending is from the anime Black Bullet. Right at the get go when the ending credits start, I get goosebumps and is immediately drawn into the song and animation. Black Bullet is one of my favorite newer animes and I wish it had a second season, because the ending of the series made me question so much. I loved the story and the character development throughout the series (even though I did question one character in the end…). I love how the credit scene is through the perspective of Enju and I feel that you get a sense of how she feels deep inside with all of her responsibilities and troubles she has to endure. I also have to give credit to the singer Nagi Yanagi, she has an incredible song and you can feel her soul through her lyrics. I love in songs how even though I don’t understand what they are saying because of a language barrier but I can tell what it is about or what the message they are getting through with how the singer performs it. You can feel the way she is feeling as a listener.

Conclusion

So that is all of them! I really do love each and every one of these anime endings. When I need a pick me up, I go to these songs to get me pumped to write or just to feel a little better. I hope you enjoyed this post and still are enjoying these anime posts, because I really love writing them! If you have any ideas for a blog post (anime or not) please let me know in the comments below, I am always up for ideas! I hope I am able to get back in the grove of getting posts out regularly now that I am feeling so much better, so I appreciate all the patience with me! I hope you guys all have a great Memorial weekend, and I will see you on Tuesday!

XOXO,

My Favorite Anime Openings!

Happy Tuesday/Wednesday and welcome to a better late than never blog post! –>new saying for late posts tehe :D. Ever since I did my anime tag a couple of weeks ago, I’ve been inspired to do more posts like that. Last week I let you know my Top 10 Anime Crushes, and this week we’re going to talk about my favorite anime openings!

Ah anime openings, the gateway to an anime. Have you ever had chills listening to an anime opening song? Have you ever watched a full anime and have never skipped through the anime opening sequence? Have you ever listened to an anime opening song and craved more so you look up the full version of a song? I am here today to share the anime openings that I have answered yes to these questions. Like or dislike the anime, let’s totally ok! But for now let’s put those feelings aside and just appreciate the wonderful mix of songs and anime opening sequences…so let’s get started!

Bleach OP1 “Asterisk” by Orange Range

Bleach has a lot of great openings, but the one that will always come to mind is the opening for the first season. Right when it starts I get all of the feels of when I first got into anime when I was younger. I love seeing all the characters as well as the wide range of colors used in each sequence.

Sailor Moon English Opening by Nicole and Brynne Price

Speaking of bringing all the feels back, in my “Anime Tag” Post, this was the answer to my favorite anime opening post question, so of course I had to mention it here. I remember looking forward to watching Sailor Moon when I was little and I was always the one to sing along to the song. Even now as an adult, if I even hear the words close to any of the lyrics I burst out in singing.

Sword Art Online “Crossing Field” by LiSA

This is one of the anime openings that I can’t skip through the anime opening, and that includes the second time I rewatched the anime. I love how in the sequence it shows the characters Kirito and Asuna as two separates but by the end they were brought together by the game.

High School of the Dead Theme Song by Kisida Kyodan and The Akebosi Rockets

There is so much I could say about this anime, but this post is just for the anime openings so that’s where I’ll try to keep it to. No matter how I feel about this anime, I love love love the opening. The beat is great and just keeps growing until you get major chills down your back during the chorus…literally every time I listen to it I get chills. This is one of the songs I listen to when I need to get a blog post out because the upbeat gets me pumped about writing.

Dragonaut the Resonance “Perfect Blue” by Jazzin’ Park

First of all, if you haven’t seen this anime you have to watch it so good! Second, this is the anime opening that I craved more and had to listen to the full version. I love how the sequence shows each character that if it’s your first time watching, you feel like you already know a little about them just by watching the opening. And that’s what anime openings are for, they are gateways to the anime, so it matches perfectly!

Attack on Titan “Guren no Yumiya” by Linked Horizon

So I know in my “Anime Tag” post I said that the “Sailor Moon Theme” is my favorite anime opening, and while yes it is number one in the feels, but if we are talking about the actual anime opening Attack on Titan would be number one. Like oh my gosh… usually I get chills during the chorus like during “High School of the Dead” but right on the get go I was getting chills and was on my feet for the whole opening. And it’s not just chills the first time type of anime opening. Like I’m that type of person that when I find a song I like (anime opening or not) I put it on repeat. With this anime I can listen to it multiple times and still get chills non stop. With this anime opening it is also hard to try to work on something like a blog post and not get distracted by watching the opening as well because there is so much awesomeness going on with the anime sequence as well. Especially the last couple of seconds… this makes me more and more excited for the next season!!!

And that was the last one! I hope you guys enjoyed this blog post! I’m still very inspired to do more post like these and if you have any ideas for my “Favorite Anime…” or “Top 10 Anime…” let me know! Also let me know what are your favorite anime openings as well! I’m always looking for new anime openings to enjoy, even if I haven’t seen or enjoy the anime!

Thank you again for spending time with me, and I will see you on Sunday!

XOXO,

Kat
