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?
The series themselves might be terrible, but they've all been running long...
1st bleach op was my favourite for a long time, can't remember anything else tho.
Naruto op 1, Shippuden op 16 and all FLOW openings
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, I like every single opening except for one. Naruto comes in 2nd and OP last
Fuck OPs and fuck EDs.
Inserts are where it's at.
Bleach, by a long shot. Mostly because of Asterisk, Alones and Ranbu no Melody.
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.
Yes, but they usually run for quite a while. I think the 2nd lasted 70 or so episodes.
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.
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
Both Naruto and Bleach have had talented directors and animators contribute to the opening and ending sequences, but what about One Piece?
I kinda liked the 5th OP opening (Starts at 7:18):
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:
How did they even think of this? Like literally the most out of place song, but it is so fucking fun it mixes so well.
WE ARE FIGHTING DREAMERS
Shiro Sagisu is a fucking genius, that's how.
In terms of OPs for me.
Naruto easily. This is not up for debate
Early naruto > early bleach > one piece >>>> shippudden >>>>>> post aizen bleach
Who had the best theme song and why is it Ichigo?
Openings, not series quality. And even then, you'd be wrong.
Bleach > Naruto >> One Piece
I really wish this OP had spent less time with "here's all the important good guys" and played around with the Charlie's Angles stuff more
Post that bleach op.
You know the one.
just because it's the most tolerable of the 3 doesn't automatically render it good user
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.
I liked this one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TGc_imTX_qE
One Piece is garbage fuck off
Naruto is the objectively correct answer.
Naruto is the objectively wrong answer.
your taste is garbage
go back to your moeshitthread, pillow hugger
Yui Rolling Star
One piece easily has the worst soundtracks out of the 3.
One Piece is easily the worst out of the three
I got One Piece fairly easily honestly. Opening 14 is godlike.
Katekyo Hitman Reborn
Visuals: Bleach = Naruto > One Piece
Audio: Bleach > Naruto > One Piece
My favorite for each series (that I remember),
Naruto OP 5
Bleach OP 2
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.
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.
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.
Why is life like a boat?
I like AKG but that new OP is just trash.
I don't really care about the long, but the new OP looks great.
DOES did the op before kana-boons
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.
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
Naruto's first ED and second OP.
Akeboshi - Wind
Asian Kung-fu Generation - Haruka Kanata
I think it has some great BGMs, but the OPs/EDs aren't as memoriable.
The series themselves might be terrible
nope, One Piece is the best manga and you also know it deep inside my pillow hugger friend.
One Piece OP 5
Only Nardo OP/ED I liked was ED 8 only because it was pretty funny
bleach has all of the best OP's
Shippudden OP 16 should've been the last one.
Naruto, I guess.
GOAT (greatest of all time)
I REARIZE DA SCLEAMING PAIN
HEARING ROUND IN MAH BRAIN
BUT IM GOING STRAIGHT AHEAD WITH THIS SCAR
Not really, they have some good memorable tracks.
Toei One Piece needs to release their new OST for the post-timeskip arc:
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.
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.
Then there are ones like those that just hits the scene just right.
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.
it's a shame because it had one of the best visuals
Easily the best OP ending.
All this hate on One Piece OST, pleb taste detected.
One Piece has great atmospheric music.
That "I want to live" scene,
Going Merry viking funeral,
That special ED for Going Merry,
I mean, Naruto and Bleach have great OST's too but I feel like One Piece uses theirs better.
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.
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.
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.
Toei used to have any animation at all for One Piece
It still hurts.
YOU ARE MY FRIEND
Toei Phili sucks balls, they can't animated worth a damn.
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?
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.
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.
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.
Gintama > Bleach > Naruto > OP. Guyana has great ops.
Bleach > OP > Naruto
I don't just want a filler can't they just animate some cover story like "Miss Wednesday Barock works Meet" or Wapol idk
Toei One Piece needs to release their new OST for the post-timeskip arc
I never realized how fat Orihime is until now.
I don't remember, but I recall listening to the Asterisk or something from Bleach like 10 years ago.
All three series however are garbage
Hey user I think One-Piece is shit
Fuck off you must be a moefag
Hopefully you never breed so your degeneration doesn't get passed down you fucking autist.
I don't watch one piece but this was pretty rad
Haruka Kanata seals the deal for me.
Bleach usually does the most visually interesting OPs and EDs. Especially the blatantly IchiRuki pandering ones where the anime staff worked in a lot of SYMBOLISM. Those were always fun.
Reminder its the most popular manga in the country where the managas came from
This kills me a little inside.
Ranbu no Melody
Fucking this. Visually, musically, plot-wise.
The whole sequence of Gin's death is amazing.
