So Long Sweet Summer: My Favorite Opening and Ending Songs from Summer Anime Season.

Happy Autumn Equinox my pandas!

We have made it to the first day of fall (if you live in the U.S.)! I know a lot of you live in other countries so your seasons are quite different, but today is the first official day of fall here in Oregon. Today has been the perfect day so far! It is cloudy, a bit cooler, but still dry. It has been sprinkling on and off, but no harsh rain as of late. I already had my first pumpkin pie breve of the season and I couldn’t be more content ❤ Shout out to Dutch Bros for the hook up!

With the seasons transitioning, both weather wise and anime wise, we are about to get some much needed change. If you missed my previous post about what anime I will be watching for fall season you can click here to check it out: https://kawaiipaperpandas.wordpress.com/2018/09/19/whats-coming-up-wednesday-its-time-to-fall-in-love-with-anime-all-over-again/. I think we have some relatively good choices coming up!

Speaking of good choices, we had some AWESOME opening and ending songs for summer season! I was quite pleased with the variety we received (although I don’t think anything can top Kiss of Death from Darling in the FranXX for me XD…that opening is such a bop).  Today I am here to bring you guys my favorite OP’s and ED’s from summer season! Let’s do this peeps.


1. Banana Fish’s Opening “found & lost” by Survive Said the Prophet

^Ugh…this song is just soooo effing good! Japanese rock is such a guilty pleasure for me.


2. Tsukumogami Kashimasu’s Opening “Get into My Heart” by MIYAVI · SHISHIDO KAVKA

^One show I put on hold for summer season but this opening song is too catchy to pass up!


3. Happy Sugar Life’s Opening “One Room Sugar Life” by Akari Nanawo

^The visuals, the color scheme, the music…this opening is PURE SWEET perfection.


4. Tenrou: Sirius the Jaeger’s Opening “Sirius” by Kishida Kyoudan & The Akeboshi Rockets

^This show was UNDOUBTEDLY my favorite show for summer season so it is no coincidence that I love the OP.


5. Angolmois: Genkou Kassenki’s Opening “Braver” by Straightener

^Another show I put on hold buuut I’ll take all the Japanese rock I can get.


6. Cells at Work’s Ending “CheerS” by ClariS

^This ending song has “feel good vibes” written all over it.


7. Angels of Death’s Ending “Pray” by Haruka Chisuga

^I love any song that has that slight haunting vibe to it.


8. Banana Fish’s Ending “Prayer X” by King Gnu

^I’m not crying, you’re crying.


9. How Not to Summon a Demon Lord’s Ending “Saiaku na hi demo Anata ga Suki” by Yuu Serizawa

^Another catchy bop my pandas.


10. Tenrou: Sirius the Jaeger’s Ending “Sajou no Hana” by Hoshie

^The best ED of the whole season. #changemymind

Island’s Opening song “Eien no Hitotsu”
Hanebado’s Opening song “Futari No Hane”

I’d like to take a cue from Porky the Pig and say, “That’s all folks!” That concludes my favorite opening and ending songs of summer anime season. What were your favorite OP’s and ED’s of the season? Did any of yours make my list? As always, I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments section below! Come on…you know you wanna leave me some wuvs 😉 My anime show wrap-up will be posted sometime next week so keep an eye out for that! I hope everyone has a great weekend. Muah! XOXO

  1. Fall started here today as well, and I could not be more happy! 😊 I love the fall and winter season😊 And yes, one of my favorites definitely made the cut and that’s the ending song from Angels of Death. While the series itself might still be kind of meh, I just really like that song! 😀

    1. There was a lot of great OP’s and ED’s this season. I also liked Boku no Hero Academia and Attack on Titans OP and ED but I felt like they were kinda mellow from previous seasons. I was quite surprised they weren’t as good. But I enjoyed them none the less!

      1. I agree with you on that. While I liked Attack on Titan’s songs, they just weren’s as powerful as the ones they had in the previous two seasons. We are getting up on the halfway point, so we will probably get some new songs again at that stage 😊
