Here is an unpopular opinion, I dislike 'gurenge', the opening for Kimetsu no Yaiba.Not gonna lie I understand how people think it is an objectively good song but it just simply doesn't click with me.

I find Boku no Hero Academia opening 2 to be generic as hell and quite bad, but I guess it's only me...

Even if you don't like the song, you have to admit that kenshi yonezu does some great songs.It's just that op2 of bnha isn't the best of his work.

I detest the first Guilty Crown OP. I don't like the singing, and the song os so badly mixed that it sounds super scratchy and unlistenable.

I loathe the Dororo OP especially because of the vocalist. Rarely have I heard a song so grating.

Most OPs people like because the song, even tho the visuals are bad, badly timed or are completly generic.

Some that come to mind are:

Fire Force OP 1 and 2 (badly timed)
Dr.Stone OP 1 and 2 (pretty generic, people starin in the fricking sky and do some walk)
Vinland saga OP 1 and 2 (shitty transitions)


Probably most OPs where people walk in the most generic and boring way possible.

There are countless more that i forgot since they succ but not on the same lvl as the ones i mentioned.

First AoT OP. I don't get the appeal, Red swan is much better.
“The sound of the Gion Shoja temple bells echoes the impermanence of all things;
The color of the sala flowers reveals the truth that to flourish is to fall.
The proud do not endure, like a passing dream on a night in spring;
The mighty fall at last, to be no more than dust before the wind.”

All openings with unintelligible Engrish. I love them and they make me laugh.

Everybody at the time was absolutely amazed with the Darling in the FranXX first opening (the second is a better edit of the first) and I just... ugh, that voice. It's not pleasing at all.

Also, the opening of Radiant. It's so damn noisy and obnoxious, holy shit.

I keep editing because I remember stuff that was in a lot of top anime op/ed lists these last couple years, and fucking Irozuku sekai no ashita kara's opening. It looks so beautiful and sophisticated and yet it sounds so unbelievably bland. I couldn't ask for a more accurate way to represent the show, so there's that at least.

Oh, and I don't know if Kemurikusa.'s op has any fans, because that shit is beyond awful.

I have a complicated love-hate relationship with the second op of Banana Fish, because it sounds and looks nice but the English parts, just why.

I ended up loving it quite a bit, but I can totally understand that. I just didn't like it at first and took a long while to grow on me. A lot of people disliked it at the beginning if I remember correctly.

I can't judge him or his songs, since that's the only song I've heard from him

Oh ok, but I recommend you check out his other songs they are pretty good. My favourite song from him is 'lemon'.

Oh god, Log Horizon's OP. I fucking loathe it. Might as well take a drill to my fucking eardrums, it'd be more pleasant than that shitty....whatever the fuck Man with a Mission does. It seems like the type of thing a 12 year old would've found really, super cool back in the timeframe when kids were still using Nokia phones.

That Limp Bizkit style Nu Metal, is the only way I can describe it. The most obnoxious variant of a genre I already despise, and that's probably the closest comparison I can draw to LH's OP. Iunno if MwaM actually counts as nu metal - probably not, actually - but that's the closest way of sounding that I can draw parallels to. And I fucking *hate* it. Like, vehemently.

@Missaliensan Holy shit, what went wrong in quoting me there?

And it actually wasn't the screaming that puts me off by itself, it's the combination of cheesy knock-off pussy metal and trying to hamfist rapping in there for some reason. This goes together like milk and water to me - or I'd say that, but really, milk and water are both good to drink on their own merits, so I'll just say anti-freeze and some sewage drainage. Like, fucking hell, give me a Fear and Loathing OP over MwaM. Fear and Loathing might also be ass, but at least it's just like drinking something that tastes like shit by itself, and not drinking some ungodly, unnecessary mixture that still tastes like shit.

It's like a group of Japanese furries decided to knock off Limp Bizkit a decade or so too late to be relevant with it and boom, you got Man with a Mission. And knocking off a terrible band in of itself should already be criminal, but then you end up subjecting innocent bystandards who just want to watch Log Horizon - like myself - to it, and it's just fucking dastardly.

Honestly I can relate, because I really dislike anime openings that involve any type of excessive screaming,and the type of music you are describing has a lot of that.By the way I was just having a really hard time editing the message on my phone,that made me really frustrated.Sorry for that inconvenience.

The 5th opening for BNHA "My Story". That was the first opening in years that I skipped. I can't stand it at all, it needed to go from the very first millisecond I heard it lol

I'm not really a fan of the Attack on Titan OP.

Also, "crossing field", the SAO I OP, is sorta meh to me.

Also, the Code Geass OP isn't as awesome as the Eureka Seven OP (same artist, same style of song, and even the same tonality).

Havent heard their log horizon op but Man on a Mission is clearly inspired by Rage Against the Machine. The rap parts in their Inuyashiki opening could have been parts of RatM's Wake Up. FWIW RatM >>>>>>>>>>>> limp bizkit

Nah, RatM's style is more distinct, with a strong, driving and dominant backsection with Morello's experimentation on guitar breaking away from the rhythm section and giving their sound a lot of flavor to it. De la Rocha can't rap and he sounds like he stopped at the point in puberty where your voice is scratchy and never got past that stage, but they have a very strongly distinct sound in all facets of their instruments section, not just the obvious one with Morello's guitar. I'm not much for RatM personally, but I know what their sound generally is and the most baseline structure by how they achieve as much. A drummer that makes wide use of his set, focused and driving non-linear baselines, independent and experimental guitar playing, and a shitty, obnoxious rapper as the frontman.

MwaM completely lacks any of that and goes for the basic overbearing guitar with a distortion effect tagged on, with simple, backseat basslines and loud drums. Mix in the vocals and boom, Limp Bizkit is an incredibly apt comparison. Far more than RatM.

All Full Metal Panic OP's - too mellow for the show imo
Brave Shine (Fate UBW) - I hear everyone loving this song. But the song itself isn't my cup of tea though. But the visuals in that OP are gorgeous though.
Any OP with screaming (eg Vinland Saga 1st OP, Parasyte OP) - I rather hear melodic sounds rather than people screaming through my headphones


Allow me to teach you something useful:
My Top 20 Japanese Cartoons
Many people say that anime is not a cartoon. But in the end, they're all nothing but drawings on paper.
Elitists when you say you like dubs, modern battle shonen, isekai, overrated waifus and overrated husbandos

Personally always found the second Death Note opening to not really fit and just not work for me.

Not just you, I've always thought it was pretty generic as well and kinda unmemorable. Not sure I'd say quite bad, but easily my least favorite MHA opening (until season 4, still forming an opinion, but suspect it won't be that high compared to the others)
You have shit taste, and then I have taste so shit it makes your taste look good

Yes they lack Tom Morello's eccentric guitar and the heavy basslines, but when I hear their songs their vocals seem much more reminiscent of RstM than Fred Durst. The similarity is uncanny here:
https://youtu.be/KguH2GtOwEw
I'm going off of two songs though so I might be wrong. Their tone also seems darker than anything limp bizkit put out coupled with the presence of kinetic bass drum sequences that give them a heavier style. I dunno. I've liked what I've heard from them while I can't stand limp bizkit. Ymmv of course.

Domestic na Kanojo OP is pretty awkward to listen to. The singer doesn't sing well and she's way too much overreacting behind her mic.

Yakusoku no Neverland

It was boring, pretentious, the scenes dragged on forever, the main kids acted like adults, it didn't expand on what the demons are and every plot twist was either predictable or bullshit.

I could make an entire list but I will just put the first things to come to my mind:

Vinland Saga (both): the first one have a very bad song and the second one tries to be action packed where the series barely have any real action (unless you consider A killing a bunch of extras action).

Unravel: I kinda like the song but the OP per se does not really have any striking features.

SNK 1: Honestly Guren no Yumiya have been so overused. And besides that, the full song is hot garbo.

Almost the entirety of Lisa´s songs because I don´t like her voice.

Tank: It is nice, but it feels kinda eerie because of the trumpets and how loud it gets towards the end.

Fire Force OP2: Edgiest shit I have heard in a long time with average visuals and the song is just... something else of bad.

Ehhh I dunno....maybe the Tokyo Ghoul OP? I hate that high-pitched singing.

"Openings you like but nobody knows they exist" is a more relevant topic for me lol

I do skip openings unless it's catchy or distinctive but if it's sung by Lisa, it's an instant skip for me. I can't stand her voice just like post above me mentioned. I have nothing against her personally but she makes the songs unbearable and her voice is just off putting. Wish she tried a different genre instead of repeating same shit over and over again.

I also skip Jrock nu metal type of openings as well and rock music in anime is way overused.

If I want to hear anime music or song I'd like it to be played with acoustic guitar. Like the first part of FMA opening. A bittersweet melancholic sound played with acoustic guitar.

Edit: Oh and hiphop rap style opening would be cool. E.g First Naruto Shippuden opening.

The opening to Samurai Champloo. It just felt so low energy, I guess, that it came off as a man talking over a light beat rather than an actual song. Visuals were fine but not good enough to make me enjoy watching the OP.

Unravel - TG

There is very little animation, it's mostly people walking, the effects are neat but nothing to lose sleep over, the singer sounds like his mom is sleeping next door so he needs to record it as quietly as possible.

Guren no Yamiya - AoT

It looks cool but not really like an OP but more of a sakuga scene. Doesn't have much focus on the character either.

Also the Bunny Girl Senpai op is annoying as hell.

yeah the bunny girl senpai opening is pretty annoying,with the repetition of ‘Kimi no sei’,over and over again.
