Hello my pandas and welcome to the last Top Ten Tuesday post of 2019! That’s right. Today is New Year’s Eve and tomorrow will not only be a new year but a new decade! Crazy to think we have made it to the year 2020. I remember when everyone was getting ready for the year 2000 and how everyone was freaking out about the end of the internet XD
Ah…time flies when you are a paranoid conspiracy theorist.
Our final Top Ten Tuesday will be my favorite opening and ending songs from autumn anime season. Surprisingly enough I liked very few opening and ending songs this watch season. I guess I felt like a lot of the OP’s and ED’s were just okay. There are a few shows that had killer OP’s and ED’s but I definitely enjoyed summer season’s a lot more. But with that being said we are gonna end 2019 on a positive note! We have to bring good energy into the new year. Let’s enjoy the opening and ending songs I did like one last time! As Mario would say, “HERE WE GOOOO!”
1. Opening Song “Survive of Vision” from Blade of the Immortal
^My favorite opening song from this season and the most UNDERRATED show. Everyone seriously needs to watch this anime. If you do decide to watch it then fair warning…it has very very mature content that may not be suitable topics for some.
2. Opening Song “Wild Side” from Beastars
^How the hell could you not love a stop motion opening?! This shit is incredible. Also…Beastars is so freaking good. So glad it was already approved for a second season!
3. Opening Song “Dark Crow” from Vinland Saga (Second Half)
^Yes…this opening isn’t as good as “Mukanjyo” by Survive Said the Prophet but I love it none the less! Plus I also may be bias when it comes to anything done by Man with a Mission 😛
4. Opening Song “Stay With Me” from Granblue Fantasy Season 2
^This opening song is so fun and catchy! Really enjoyed it from the very beginning.
5. Opening Song “Motor City” from No Guns Life
^Motor City has that fresh and snazzy vibe to it. It reminds me of all the jazzy openings like Cop Craft and BEM from earlier this year.
6. Ending Song “Drown” from Vinland Saga (Second Half)
^As Alexie, Bodell, and I would say…this song is a banger.
7. Ending Song “Unlasting” from SAO: War of Underworld
^Lisa is on a roll this year! Glad to see her shining so brightly. She deserves it with her voice sounding like a literal angel.
8. Ending Song “Koaki no Uta” from My Hero Academia Season 4
^Probably one of my favorite ending songs in the My Hero Academia franchise. Plus we get to see cute little Eri-chan! :3
9. Ending Song “Hyakuoku Kounen” from Kabukicho Sherlock
^After watching episode 11 of Kabukicho Sherlock this ending song makes so much sense. God damn…episode 11’s ending was dark as fuck and this song made it that much more haunting.
10. Ending Song “Regeneration” from The Seven Deadly Sins Season 3
^While everyone is harping on the animation of season 3 of The Seven Deadly Sins can we at least appreciate this seasons opening and ending songs? Regeneration is such a freakin bop! I love this ED!
I was going to put honorable mentions like I usually do but I didn’t have enough ED songs that I liked to round out the list so I am skipping them this time around. That is going to do it for me and for the blog in 2019! Thank you to everyone who has supported us through out the year. We hope you continue your patronage to the panda gang in 2020! I am sending out good vibes into the universe that the KPP team grows and flourishes even more in the new year.
