Well, it’s that time of the week again, the time to enlighten you with my great knowledge in list form. And this week, we have a fun one. Sure, there’s plenty of anime shows that are hyped. In fact, a handful of them actually deserve that hype. For all the others, we have this list.
It pains me to see a good show be ruined by it’s fanbase. It just sucks when you watch a series after being told it’s amazing, and it ends up being sub-par. However, it’s important to note that just because a show is on here, it doesn’t mean it’s a bad show. In fact, I enjoyed most of the shows on this list at one point! Now, without further ado, on to the list!

Last week, I brought you my list of my top 5 favorite anime opening themes, you where very vocal in what you thought on them. In that same vein, this week I bring you my top 5 anime opening sequences. Now, this time, I’m sharing my criteria with all of you:
Does the opening match the series well?
Does the song match the opening, in timing as well as feel?
Is the opening cheesy? If so, is it necessarily cheesy, or is it just plain stupid?
Does the opening make sense? By which I mean, is it just some random amalgam of action shots or does it actually show the characters in their element?
Is it a dub opening?
So, with that in mind hit the jump to catch the top 5, and why they made the list.

As a new feature, each Wednesday or so for a while I’m going to start doing some Top 5 lists, starting with the top 5 anime opening themes.
Well over a thousand anime series have been released over the years, each one with a different theme song, and some with more than one over the years. However, most are mediocre at best, so I took it upon myself to compose a list of what I consider the best 5 anime opening themes of all time. This list was hard to do; I ended up having to cut a few songs I loved that just weren’t as good as some of the others, including The Cruel Angel’s Thesis, Cutey Honey, and a few others. So, without further ado, here’s my list of the top 5 anime opening themes.
In 5th place on my list is "Obsession" by See Saw, the theme to .hack//SIGN. Obsession just barely got on the list, with the Evangelion theme The Cruel Angel’s Thesis coming up 6th. The only reason Obsession inched out Cruel Angel’s Thesis is because Obsession truly matched the overall feel of .hack//SIGN. The overall feel of the song seemed to go well with the feel of the anime, which at times can feel pretty trippy, technological yet very human. Plus, I just think it sounds great.
