Rules



Example Post

Entry 1:
Audio - x/10
Video - y/10

Entry 2:
Audio - z/10
Video - t/10

Entry 3:
Audio - a/10

Simply replace "Entry 1, 2, 3" with the titles of the anime you're judging and then input whatever numeric scores you feel like they deserve below instead of the symbols. Please make sure it is obvious who you are voting for.

Try to vote for the best opening/ending, not the best show.
Every round will run for roughly 72 hours-ish and new one gets posted every day.
If you notice any mistakes, please comment below. Some songs may be pitched/nightcored due copyright issues.

Seeds are shuffled.

Since some shows can have multiple openings/endings, we have decided to allow only the first one into the competition. It seems the best and the most fair solution. We want many different contestants rather than one show taking whole bracket.

Also, since there are many much more obscure shows included with the new tournament format, there is a chance that some themes might simply be impossible to find on the internet. If it turns out that we are unable to track down a copy of the entry for the purposes of the tournament then the contestant may have to be disqualified.

If you have questions, ask them below.

Fuck this OP and fuck this show cuz it went from being funny bad in episode 1 to insufferably bad in episode 2. Good candidate for worst OP of the season, worst OP of the year, and worst anime of the year.)

"Anti-elitists" are the true elitists of this community. They're the kind of people that remind me that the elitist stereotype they perpetuate basically doesn't exist, and those who use it to scapegoat embody practically every trait they put into the stereotype, as they sit in their ivory tower looking down at and attacking people they disagree with because they're being negative on a show they like, and their favorites list is comprised of at least one non-mainstream classic, all the while cowering at the idea of those people giving them a taste of their own medicine. Also, objectivity in art is relative, therefore arguable, not nonexistent.

(This is actually one of my favorite openings of the season. I'm not huge on the speaking part, but after reading the English translation of the lyrics it was really impactful to me personally. As for the visuals, I like the obscure feel and the fact it doesn't give away anything about the show and its content.)

i really like the 20s vibe of the song - it goes along really well with the animations. the visuals were pretty good tbh, especially the backgrounds.

I just like how it sounds, also the singer comes through really sharply, just all around lovely to listen to. The video goes beautifully with the song. All around biased af to this OP.

Arifureta Shokugyou de Sekai Saikyou | OP:
Audio - 8/10
Video - 7/10


The beginning of this OP is honestly fantastic and the latter half isn't all that bad either. First of all, the English isn't Engrish, the music itself feels powerful and the different instruments weave together really well so it never feel too rich or too thin. The beat drop coming later than what the buildup indicated felt a bit strange though, especially because when it dropped it was nowhere near impressive enough to warrant its delay. And while I like the first half better, props to the way the sax is being used in the latter half, much more effective than how they used the violin for the same thing in the first half.

The video is probably the biggest reason why I love the first half though. Dynamic, creative, super tight yet simple. Effective imagery to evoke the themes in the show and both halves match up well to the feel of the song.

Bem | OP:
Audio - 3/10
Video - 4/10


The song and the end of the video are hella mismatched. What's with putting such dynamic violence to a classy jazz song that never changed its tone throughout the song. Speaking of which, the only thing that makes the song sound interesting is the fact that it's jazz and the singer, but otherwise, I might as well be listening to rap. I like the fact that main trio are a bit shifty and then there's a cut to a better angle, pose and look for them. Rest of it is whatever though, as if the 3DCG at the beginning didn't start this off on the wrong foot as it has.

Whelp, went from comments to essays it did :P
