“Touch Off” By UVERworld: The Promised Neverland"Touch Off" By UVERworld: The Promised Neverland

The Promised Neverland held a lot of promise in its first season. The story captivated audiences with its intriguing world and the dark mysteries surrounding it. However, the second season didn’t live up to the hype the first season had created around it.

The opening songs really added to the hype around the series. “Touch Off” by UVERworld is a bombastic and energizing song. With driving instruments and striking vocals it made watching the series an experience all on its own.

“X.U.” By Sawano Hiroyuki: Seraph Of The End"X.U." By Sawano Hiroyuki: Seraph Of The End

Seraph of the End is a jumbled mess of different tropes and genres all thrown together into one story. To some, this is a feature of the story. To others, it can be too confusing or even feel too bloated.

Where the series fails, the openers are there to pick up the slack. The first opener, in particular, “X.U.” by Sawano Hiroyuki, is particularly interesting for both its music and narrative significance. This piece is actually in conversation with the ending theme of the first season, “scaPEGoat”.

“Crossing Field” By Lisa: Sword Art Online"Crossing Field" By Lisa: Sword Art Online

Sword Art Online has been critically panned by every critic and audience member alike. It has been blamed for being the harbinger of the tidal wave of low-quality Isekai anime. Its reputation continues to worsen and become more infamous as the years go by.

Despite this, all the opening songs give the series a gravitas it might not otherwise have sustained. Sword Art Online boasts some of the best artists in the industry, such as LiSA with “Crossing Field” and “ADAMAS.” Despite the shortcomings of the story, the opening songs always hit perfectly.

“CORE PRIDE” By UVERworld: Blue Exorcist"CORE PRIDE" By UVERworld: Blue Exorcist

Blue Exorcist never hit the same heights as its predecessors. The first season took a dip in quality after the first half of the season once it stopped following the manga.

But Blue Exorcist has a fantastic lineup of opening songs. “CORE PRIDE” and “Itteki no Eikyou” by UVERworld are fast, upbeat pieces that really set the tone for the show.

“Unravel” By TK From Ling Tosite Sigure: Tokyo Ghoul"Unravel" By TK From Ling Tosite Sigure: Tokyo Ghoul

The Tokyo Ghoul anime was a case of a bad adaptation of a very good manga. It is mostly known now for its edgy tone, confused plot lines, and its very first opening song.

“Unravel” by TK from Ling Tosite Sigure was incredibly influential for the series and beyond. To this day, it is one of the most popular openings in anime history. It is so popular that it tends to overshadow the rest of the series.
