Hey guys! Welcome to my top ten countdown for the entire year of 2015! Since it is the first full year of anime I have watched, it was only right to compile all of my favorites for the year into a collection of blogs!
This blog consists of my favorite endings out of all the anime I have watched this year. Keep in mind that these are all my opinion and the list does not include anime that I have not seen. Enjoy!
10 | Ace of the Diamond Second Season
Song: “KIMERO!!” by OxT
Thoughts: This song is really jumpy, which many may dislike, but I happen to enjoy. It is a little odd of a choice I admit, and I actually though it was an opening at one point (I don’t know why), but it just gets your blood pumping.
9 | Haikyuu!! Second Season
Song: “Climber” by Galileo Galilei
Season: Fall –
Thoughts: This is just a nice song, and I really like the vocals here. It fits the whole Haikyuu feel and goes well with the opening. This is one opening that a would listen to any day of the week. It has a bit of a homey feel to me, maybe from the slight softness in the vocals.
8 | Ace of the Diamond Second Season
Song: “BLOOM OF YOUTH” by Tom-H@ck featuring Masayoshi Oishi
Season: Spring –
Thoughts: A rather recent ending for the series, this is one that I really enjoy among the many Ace of the Diamond soundtracks. At first I found it a tad bit annoying, but after a while I was singling along. I actually quite like the other songs by this artist (they have done a number of songs for Ace of the Diamond).
7 | Seven Deadly Sins
Song: ““7 -seven-“ by FLOW x GRANRODEO
Season: Fall (2014 yikes) – Winter
Thoughts: I would fee bad if I put this up higher since it technically aired in fall of 2014, but this is one of my favorite endings so it must be on the list. This song is a ball of a fun and it easily could have been an opening for the series.
6 | Arslan Senki
Song: “Lapis Lazuli” by Eir Aoi
Season: Spring – Summer
Thoughts: Many may like the second ending better, but think this one captures the kingdom feel more. This song is kind of weird because at times it wanes in between super exciting and meh. In the end, this song picks up and pulls through.
5 | Gangsta.
Song: “Yoru no Kuni” by Annabel
Thoughts: Oh look a somewhat calming ending is here. Even though the song is by no means boring, it still has this kind of feel that warms you up a bit inside. Although it is no where as exciting as the opening, it’s still a very nice song to just listen to.
4 | Asterisk War
Song: “Waiting for the rain” by Maaya Sakamoto
Thoughts: This song is the pinnacle of calm for me. Yes, I wish the anime was ten times better, but this song makes up for it a bit. The best calming songs relax you without putting you to sleep, this is a good one. Even when the song picks up a bit, the song still retains the calm, romantic feel.
3 | Tokyo Ghouls root A
Song: “Kisetsu wa Tsugitsugi Shindeiku” by Amazarashi
Thoughts: I like the opening too, but not as much as the ending here. This song is somehow very calming, despite having a fairly upbeat tune. At the same time it is something that you can tap you foot to. I also have to add that the art changes for every ending, which is beautiful and lovely.
2 | Shimoneta
Song: “Inner Urge” by Sumire Uesaka
Thoughts: This might come as a surprise but I really love this ending! It is funky and weird, but strangely, very catchy. I catch myself humming this song quite often. Yes, it is quite a perverted song, but that certainly doesn’t detract from how badly it gets stuck in your head.
1 | Kekkai Sensen
Song: “Sugar Song to Bitter Step” by Unison Square Garden
Thoughts: You saw this coming from a mile away am I right? This is easily my favorite opening of all time. It is fun, jazzy, and makes you want to get up and dance. This is one of the only openings that I listened all the way through every time. It is a very nice and unique way to end the nice and unique episodes of this nice and unique series.
I hope you enjoyed reading my blog! Be sure to check out the final results (points all added up) to see how each anime did 🙂
