12 Days of Anime (2012) – Day 5 – Dancing Openings and Endings of 2012

nisemonogatari-opening-tsukihi-koyomi-dancing-platinum_disco-kimonoLet’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?
