Some posters misread the topic title. It says "worst", so you couldn't possibly say Death Note, Mirai Nikki, Another, Gantz, and so on.



Yeah it says worst but don't expect anyone to go beyond their personal opinion of what they don't like and hate. But it weren't for the overuse of superlatives on mal nobody would have anything to say.

Plus it's always funny seeing people blatantly hate on all the OPs of [INSERT RANDOM MAINSTREAM] show. You mean to tell me that Jmusic artists that make great music suddenly turn to suck w/e one of their songs gets used for a popular anime? Right...

I never really liked the opening for Code Geass. Naruto Shippuden opening six was the only one I enjoyed so far. Never cared for the Slayers themes either.

It's not because the anime is mainstream no, it's because the openings suck, let's take Naruto for example (I think that's what you meant), personally I don't hate Naruto, I like where the anime is going actually, and I remember watching a couple of good openings, but the other 17+- openings were way too bad. Have you tried taking a look at some of them?

Note that I commenting about the people who said "ALL" openings for any mainstream anime as being the worst openings ever. That doesn't mean mainstream anime are incapable of having a bad OP but it is highly dubious that ALL of their OPs would be the worst OPs found in anime and it becomes even more questionable considering the level of talent mainstream shows use for their OPs.

God bless superlatives. Without superlatives we would actually have to describe what makes an OP bad or the worst ever beyond personal likes and dislikes.

Well 'MOST' is not 'ALL'. I didn't take 'ALL' literally, nor do I think they meant it that literally, or they did mean 'ALL' since the 'worst' is not necessary the same for all people. Going back to the Naruto (Shippuden this time) example, for me it had 1 good opening and 10 bad ones, but there's also a 'possibility' that someone didn't like that 1 opening and the other ones (since they're bad). So saying blatantly that people say something blatantly is .. well blatant.

Don't get me wrong I understood what you meant and I hate people going wild over a show just because it's mainstream, but making wild assumptions is something I don't like either, especially when there's a possibility that these assumptions are wrong.

I'm sorry what? When someone says "All of Naruto Shippuuden's OPs." then instead of taking what they said literally you go an infer something more moderate so that it appeases you? I'm and fine with not taking some phrases and slang literally but when it comes down to something as simply as the word "all" then I am going to take it to mean what it means, all.

I've already said that I am not claiming that any series is incapable of producing bad OPs. My comment was pointing out the audacity of trying to claim ALL of a series' OPs are bad. Of course you're trying to change the subject by interpreting "all" to mean "most".

Don't get me wrong I understood what you meant and I hate people going wild over a show just because it's mainstream, but making wild assumptions is something I don't like either, especially when there's a possibility that these assumptions are wrong.

If you understand then why are you debating with me about whether or not a single OP is bad. My statement was a simply "lol@all anything being the worst" and you're trying to invalidate it by saying some of those alls are really bad.

That's some painful memories you brought back there. I'm surprised. You didn't put up a K-ON op with the lyrics though. The lyrics are a bit of a dealbreaker.

The Another opening was a weird experience. Its transition from great to insufferable, to nice, to dull and so many feelings in the emotional answer spectrum is probably unequalled in anime form. Not a good opening overall, indeed.

I disagree strongly about Bokusatsu tenshi Dokuro-chan. That show simply couldn't have had another opening. It needed that mad, strident and hysterical intro more than anything else. I also like the second opening to Death note, more than the first, but guess that is reduced to the music tastes.

Can't find a proper answer to this thread. Most of the anime openings that aren't great or at least good tend to be just forgettable and I can't remember them as I finish the series.

Nah, don't worry. What deadleeserious posted reminded me of Pururin. And actually, I just recently read a review for that series, and remembered two things: 1) I already knew about it 2) pipirupipipiru. Didn't meant to imply either of those is bad. I already cast my vote, and so far nothing dethrones it for me.

See, the real reason I didn't actually look for the opening with subs, was because I couldn't bear to hear the song over and over while I searched for the video.

Anyways, I come with another batch of openings from hell.

@Anime_Name: what I meant that he might have meant what he/she said, since I know how bad Naruto Shippuden's openings are. Anyway this is going nowhere, never-mind, my bad for starting it.

They're common, you can just search anime opening cross overs and/or MAD crossovers and you'll find tons of them.



Anyways, every single Fairy Tail opening for me. Why? Because each opening spoils the next entire arc before it even finishes/airs.

Since we are posting dub openings...



I can't decide which one is worse between that "Cardcaptors" OP and the "Mew Mew Power" OP I heard for the first time today from the post on here, as far as terrible mahou shoujo dub OPs go.

Gotta say, you're pulling at straws here on that one. Those openings aren't anything to make a fuss about, but they aren't terrible either. I think you need more bad anime to watch.

I'm really surprised by this. I always remembered Eureka Seven having great openings, and after watching the video my feelings are still the same. Great openings IMO, but I guess different strokes for different folks.

Also Ghost Hunt is pretty boring, there isn't even any nice pictures to look at.

The opening to Genji Monogatari sennenki (starts at 0:14). The show is an adaptation of this classic Japanese epic, and this standard J-pop schlock just doesn't fit in at all with the tone of the series.

PrincessxPrincess OP. I know it's old Anime, but it's just....really pointless and boring. I didn't even bother to watch it the first time.
Also the Ghost Hunt one. Great music, but it's pretty dang boring that i didn't even feel like watching it just for the music.

Ro-Kyu-Bu!'s was pretty dang terrible as well.
