The second one. I didn't like the first one. It kept reminding me of that pretentious African chorus you hear in movies like Black Hawk Down.

Love both of them but "My Everlasting Guilty Crown" beats "My Dearest" hands down. My Dearest gives off quite a heroic feel while My Everlasting Guilty Crown's beat and rhythm gives you the feel of depression or hopelessness like how everything you do is useless but then there's a glimmer of hope which makes go back on track and kick some ass, exactly what happens with Shu. Loved the foreshadowing of spoilers in the OP2, didn't notice it until now. Damn. :D

Pretty much this.
If I don't like it, it isn't really music.

Looking back at the past episodes to listen to the first opening I realize a lot has changed and I definitely wasn't predicting that it would all turn out like this... The entire "atmosphere" of the show has really changed.

Saying that, I would have to go with the first OP, My Dearest BUT honestly the one song that I did rape the replay button on Foobar is Departures. I fell in love with that song instantly.

I personally prefer My Dearest.
And by that, I mean halyosy's version. Koeda's nasal is unbearable. Nobunaga's cover is nice as well, though she doesn't have enough power in her voice for the song.
Basically, Koeda shouldn't have sung My Dearest. But I don't see chelly fitting it, either. Hence, superior halyosy.

And although I much prefer chelly's voice over Koeda's, it doesn't seem like chelly's voice fits The Everlasting Guilty Crown that well, either. Particularly in the chorus. I like the build-up in the verses of the song, to be honest, but the chorus' melody falls flat for me.

Besides that, I think My Dearest has a more memorable melody than The Everlasting Guilty Crown, and better instrumentals as well.
God, there is an annoying click-y sound in the chorus of My Dearest though. I swear I'm not just hearing things.


edit:
Well, didn't really think about the actual animation of the OP.
All I care about is the ryo. /shrug.

You basically said what I was going to say. XD "The Everlasting Guilty Crown" is god-like to me, the composition, vocals, and the music just work together so perfectly.

In my opinion, "My Dearest" was also great but nowhere near as brilliant as the 2nd OP. The 1st verse was a bit too slow but the chorus made up for it. I just really disliked that after so much build-up, it just stopped. I'm so glad that it didn't make the abrupt stop in the full version, it makes the song much more enjoyable.

It's surprising to hear a guy's voice, but ironically I like the nasal. I dunno, it feels stronger. And there's always a bias for me to pick the original over alternatives.

I know that "My Dearest" is freakin' catchy, but I still prefer "My Everlasting Guilty Crown". It made me pick up my guitar and just jam with it!

And I'm personally biased for halyosy. /shot.
I've always disliked nasal. Koeda is really no exception. And I've become perfectly fine with listening to covers thanks to the Vocaloid fandom (getting me into utaites).

Jizzy as you would call yourself because youre a dick The most butthurt award goes to you And clearly you havent watched that many shows thats why you cant determine if a show is unique or not Or maybe you're just a child who likes common stuffs where hero saves the day and guys gets all the girls. Sad taste you have there kid you came up to me in the first place making you look more like a kid who got slapped without me even knowing it and start crying about it to me

Well after the full second OP came out, I can say the second is now slightly better (also because I listened too much of the first OP already).

God, Chelly's voice is beautiful.
