Top OP Themes Of Winter 2011-12

Jan 16, 2012 @ 12:18 CDT


For sake of rhythmic indulgence with ease, the opening sequence of every series airing this season of winter 2011-2012 has been ranked according to its excellence – a feat sure to be controversial, yet justified.

Of course everyone will have their own personal judgement, and there likely exists a group who each views one of these OP themes below as the best – thus there’s not much point in argument or discussion over the subject, however it can be said that some OPs are definitely more well done than others, and it certainly does not take anything special to see this when watching the OP of say, Symphogear, and comparing to that of the lowly ranked Moretsu Pirates OP.

Whilst personal taste cannot be a fair metric of consideration, technique and execution however can.

Symphogear’s OP radiates with energy – whilst the mix of guitar amongst techno beats serves to entrance at least until the vocals, once the vocals begin, there’s simply no escape. The music fires up with energy and turns into an adrenaline rush as the title screen comes up. In an OP, it’s crucial the visuals correspond with the sound in some manner – and in the case of Symphogear’s magnificent OP, all the flashing waves of laser-like lights which act beautifully to attract our attention resonate as if on the same frequency as the song playing.

This is an action consistently seen from start to finish – as soon as one hits the play button on the OP, one will notice the equalizer pattern bars which come up in sync with the guitar and each showcase a different face to be found within the series. As for another nice effect, the slide-out of the sub-title is nothing less than gorgeous – each word expands whilst a slur of green rushes forward from behind the series emblem.
