Top OP & ED of Winter 2014

With the winter season now over, it’s time to look back at the best Openings and Endings from the winter in my opinion. Lets hop too it then!

Honorable Mentions

Wizard Barristers OP “JUSTITIA” by Lia”

The show may not have been the best of the season but I did enjoy the opening. Does a good job showing off what the show was about.

Mikakunin de Shinkoukei ED “Tomadoi→Recipe by Mikakuning!”

Just a really fun song once you understand all the characters. Pretty funny at the same time.

Top Endings of Winter Season

#3 Witch Craft Works ED “”divine intervention” by fhána”

Have to say that this ending is what got me through some of the episodes of WCW.

#2 Mahou Sensou “Born to be” by nano

Ending to Mahou Sensou was it’s shining star for the series. Way better than the show and almost my favorite ending of the season.

#1 Noragami “Heart Realize” by Tia

Easily the best ending for me this season. Really brought out the emotions for myself. Noragami really out did itself this season in the quality of work it showed in the opening and ending.

Top Openings of Winter Season

#3 Space Dandy “Viva Namida” by Yasuyuki Okamura

Never know what your about to see in every episode of space dandy and the opener really got you pumped for whatever was coming. I don’t think I ever skipped the opening on a space dandy episode.

#2 Noragami “Goya no Machiawase” by Hello Sleepwalkers

At first I didn’t really care for the opening of Noragami, but it grew on me much like the show did.

#1 Nagi no Asukara OP2 “ebb and flow” by Ray

The second opening for Nagi no Asukara really caught the change in pace for the show right. Even the small changes in the opener over the course of the last 12 episodes was nice. My favorite for the season, looking forward to next season.

More Winter Impressions

Pupa

pupa1

Gore just for gore? This short was pushed back twice I think and its still this bad? Not even a story really, girl finds dog and dog turns her into a monster. Disappointed

First Impression: 3/10

Strange+

Think they were trying to do too much all at once in the short. Episode comes off too fast and the watchers just get lost in it all. Strange+ can still make a come back but it needs to slow down and introduce us to the cast more. 

First Impression: 4/10

Z/X Ignition

So I was thinking Z/X was based on the free to play card game in Japan and thought the anime would have been more like Yu-Gi-Oh or Cardfight. I couldn’t be more wrong, it makes me think of Digimon more so. Still a kids anime with some very bad lines, though the plots not bad. Still a drop for me, there’s a lot of good anime to watch this season and Z/X isn’t one that’s going to hold my interest.

First Impression: 5/10 Average

Hoozuki no Reitetsu

Hozuki1

Slice of Hell is what Hoozuki no Reitetsu is. Hoozuki works as a manager in Hell and this series is about those problems and Hoozuki’s hobbies. Show isn’t going to be for everyone, I’d say go watch the first episode to see if your going to be into it. I strangely enjoyed it so I’m down for more episodes of it.

First Impression 7/10

Mikakunin de Shinkoukei

Mikakunin1

Better than it looks, it helps a lot for the main to characters having level heads about the whole fiancee. Getting set up to a future wife/husband has to be a very experience that I for one know nothing about but I could understand Kobeni in how she be feeling during the first episode. The whole show feels very real at its core and I for one really like that for this show. I’ll stay around for at least some more episodes to see what happens.
