The series themselves might be terrible, but they've all been running long enough to get loads of OPs and EDs. But which has the best ones?

1st bleach op was my favourite for a long time, can't remember anything else tho.

Ryder Peterson

Naruto op 1, Shippuden op 16 and all FLOW openings

Brandon Phillips

Overall balance between all OP, ED and visuals: Naruto > One Piece > Bleach

Individually each has at least two memorable OP and ED but the rest is forgettable garbage with boring visuals that gets old after a while.

Bleach, by a long shot. Mostly because of Asterisk, Alones and Ranbu no Melody.

Jason Harris

I've never watched the OP anime.

Does it actually have different openings? I've always thought it just had a single opening like Dragon Ball did with head cha la.

Jose Carter
Jose Carter

Yes, but they usually run for quite a while. I think the 2nd lasted 70 or so episodes.

Ayden Robinson
Ayden Robinson

Bleach's 2nd OP D-tecnoLife was rad as hell if not corny. The 3rd OP Ichirin no Hana was okay, but the Huge Hollow Mix version is practically fucking Speedcore. It's absurd.

Adam Jackson
Adam Jackson

I only ever saw like one or two Naruto OPs during the short time I followed the show, but I swear to God if the final fight (whenever they finally finish with all this fucking filler) doesn't bring back the Naruto Main Theme I will cut someone

Brody Lee

Both Naruto and Bleach have had talented directors and animators contribute to the opening and ending sequences, but what about One Piece?

Mason Collins
Mason Collins

I kinda liked the 5th OP opening (Starts at 7:18):

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5GUPtoiFm5A&feature=youtu.be&t=7m18s

Right at the turning point where one piece goes fully batshit with its powers and shenanigans, and the Water 7 / Enies lobby arcs showing that the crew have a shot against the marines / world gov.

I was also kinda sad that this one never made it into English:

Brandon Evans

I think the OPs of One Piece are just the least ambitious, mostly serving as "here's what's happening this season" and using the art that Oda does for the covers.

Doesn't mean they're terrible.

Naruto OP 5

Jose Perez

Usually prefer Bleach ones because it's the one I watched the most, I tended to read the manga for the other so wasn't exposed as much to their OPs

Some Naruto stuff by FLOW was always great, can't recall much else.

Angel Cooper
Angel Cooper

The only memorable ones from Naruto are the FLOW openings and that finale-tier OP sung by Kana-Boon. Too bad they replaced it with generic J-rock. OP 18 was great too, but aniplex hates good things so they changed it into generic J-rock again. I like AKG but that new OP is just trash.

For Bleach and OP, I only liked their first one.

Juan Garcia
Juan Garcia

I like AKG but that new OP is just trash.
I know the feeling, I love DOES but that song they did for Boruto the movie or was it The Last? is trash.

Jacob Gray

Yes that one, it just felt generic and soul less compared to their usual fare, none of which is masterpiece level but at least gets me way more fired up.

Julian Martinez
Julian Martinez

I liked the One Piece openings when they were still under 2 minutes long. Obviously the art quality has gone downhill in later OP episodes and that spills over a bit into the openings, but the newer ones just drag on.
Also the older openings sounded less generic IMO. I hate fucking moody/angsty jrock

Not really, they have some good memorable tracks.

Toei One Piece needs to release their new OST for the post-timeskip arc:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YAJsqK0MF4M

I'd say barring the Arrancar arc, Bleach has the worst soundtrack.

Naruto Shippudden's soundtrack is pretty good, the original OST for the first anime was meh.

Jackson Baker
Jackson Baker

Really? I fucking love One Piece's soundtrcks. Naruto's started to annoy me after a while and only some of Bleach stuck out to me. Stuff like Overtaken, Luffy's Fierce Attack, Hangeki no Noroshi, The Very Very Very Strongest and even the new ones like Caesar's theme or the Dressrosa ones are good.

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=yJwc_SKNi9Q
Then there are ones like those that just hits the scene just right.

William Adams

I agree with you on Bleach but early Naruto....meh. Heavily overrated. The only saving grace of the first few arcs in Naruto was Rock Lee and Orochimaru. The rest was pretty damn boring.

I mean, Naruto and Bleach have great OST's too but I feel like One Piece uses theirs better.

Noah Gutierrez

Top tier taste and I don't even like that arc. I wish they went back to doing ED. Toei is fucking shit, they use to have a decent budget and animation for One Piece.

Isaac Mitchell
Isaac Mitchell

I really don't get it. The soundtrack and VAs are literally the only thing the anime gets right consistently. The Dressrosa soundtrcka, FI osts, PH osts have all been fantastic. It's suffering to wait 3 years for an actual release though.

Then there are the movie ones, which are some of the most amazing ones.

Jonathan Young
Jonathan Young

Yep, I can't wait for GOLD. The movies are almost consistently great/good. I really wish Toei would put more effort in the t.v. anime. Toei Phili sucks balls, they can't animated worth a damn. Hell, Precure has better animation than One Piece and that's also by Toei.

Kayden Evans

Toei used to have any animation at all for One Piece

They're only one of the many teams in the rotation though, it's not like the rest of the show looks good. Also, don't they mostly do inbetweens?

Camden Wilson
Camden Wilson

They can't go to filler cause "muh ratings" and they can't pace for shit cause they're too near the manga. I honestly wish Oda would take like a 6 month break or something. It'd give him a chance to take it slow and draw at a nice pave and give Toei an excuse to fucking stop and kill themselves.

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=9vHT86U5rLY

Liam Fisher
Liam Fisher

One Piece is one of the few anime where I would rather take a decent 15-20 episode filler over the pacing we have been getting for the past 3 years. It's gotten ridiculous. If they are willing to make another G8 type of filler I'd be completely fine with that.

Then again I don't expect anything from Toei, they are fine butchering the fuck out of the adaptation as long as the ratings are good.

Lucas Wright
Lucas Wright

That's the other problem. The ratings are good. The poor nips are so used to the nostalgia and love for the manga that they don't realise that there is literal shit being projected into their eyes. And Oda is just a happy camper. He's happy as long as he can hear voices. What a poor soul. He deserves better.
