What’s the overall message of anime openings?

Credit to linked pixiv user

I love anime openings. When I was new to the fandom I used to collect video files of all the anime openings I liked (this was before YouTube) and would often spend a couple of hours at a time just watching one after the other.

Since a list of my anime video library isn’t too long for a post, and since a lot of my DVDs have a story behind them, I felt like giving them some attention…

Making a list of favorite anime openings

I’ve made a lot of anime favorites lists over the years, but I was recently reminded that I have yet to make a list of favorite openings, a list that many bloggers have already done. Although there’s a reason for why I’ve been avoiding such a list, I finally managed to come up with a top 10…

Another look at the trend of frequently changing anime OPs and EDs

Earlier this year, I wrote a post about how many recent anime series have had openings and/or endings that change frequently in song, animation, or both, sometimes as often as every single episode. Though it’s happened in a few cases for older anime, it seems like the trend has really taken off this year…

The common structure of anime songs

In a previous post, I discussed the common themes of anime songs and how the majority of them, regardless of genre, have many similarities in their lyrics. In this follow-up post, I’ll be discussing the commonality of anime songs when it comes to their actual structure…

I’ve come across more goodies for the Haruhi movie, which probably won’t get a DVD release until fall at the earliest. Among other things, the long awaited camera rip for the movie is now available…

Is frequently changing anime OPs and EDs a new trend?

I’ve noticed that, for a handful of recent anime, a trend has been going on in which the openings and/or the endings are changed more frequently than usual. I’m curious if this is just a coincidence or if it’s pointing to something more…
