Let’s face it, if there were a hierarchy of anime openings and endings, then the fanservice dancing ones would be on top. They’re like the royalty of anime OPs and EDs, not only in terms of quality and fondness but also in how unforgettable or distinctive they are. Remember that dance in Haruhi? Or the Lucky Star opening? Or my personal favorite, the seconding ending to xxxHOLiC? As soon as you infuse some dancing into an opening or ending, they improve or, at the very least, become more memorable. This year, we witnessed the origination of several new dancing openings and endings, with each showing its influence by being some of the most cherished and celebrated sequences of the year. And for this day, I want to honor these select few openings and endings for being some of the best in 2012.
There are a lot of passionate voices out there blogging about anime. Yup… there are a lot. What I find the most alluring about these blogs is finding out what shows these people enjoy and which ones they dislike. People will come to various conclusions about the shows they watch based on whatever process they use to evaluate the show. Of course, there are the popular anime, which everyone seems to favor, and the shitty anime, which no one bothered to watch. Then there’s the raging mass of shows caught between these two sides. These are the shows I find the most interesting because the spectrum of opinions ranges from extreme to extreme. The sheer diversity of these thoughts is what I truly like to read. However, there are so many different types of shows from comedy to sci-fi to action to adventure to ecchi to horror to slice-of-life to whatever. How is it possible to evaluate the wide range of shows?
