2016 Best OP

Post by blaZofgold » Fri Dec 16, 2016 3:47 am

You've been voting all year long, and now it's time to decide which song deserves to be the best of 2016.

Please present your nomination in the following format:
Name of Song
Artist
Anime
For example,
blaZofgold wrote:database feat. TAKUMA (10 Feet)
MAN WITH A MISSION
Log Horizon
One vote per individual. Your nomination must be an OP that has played in 2016 (if an anime had a second cour in 2016, you cannot nominate the OP from the first cour). Your evaluation of an OP should include not only the song itself, but also the presentation and animation sequence alongside it. Your evaluation should preferably not be biased towards the rest of the show, although you may make the case that the rest of the show can "improve" or "contrast" the OP. You can use the rest of this thread as discussion of opinions, praise, criticisms, flame wars, etc.

The deadline for nominations will be Friday, December 23rd.

As usual, there are a lot of good OP this year.
For this year, majority of these come from the earlier half of the year.
And after much thinking and consideration: of animation sequence, of how meaningful the song is, etc etc etc
I've come to a choice between White Forces (fripSide, Schwarzesmarken OP) and Lay Your Hands on Me (Boom Boom Satellites, Kiznaiver OP)
Well, but since Lay Your Hands on Me is probably Boom Boom Satellites' last song:
Lay Your Hands on Me
Boom Boom Satellites
Kiznaiver OP
RIP Michiyuki Kawashima.
You did great, bro. Enjoy your break. :')
Giving his love for life, and died dreaming about her in the end. A real happy man, right? ~

So since even I forgot about the deadline (ha!) I'm going to extend the deadline to Sunday, December 25th (merry Christmas!)

This will also apply for the other contests so be sure to check those as well.

I'll go with this one, I like the animation, the song and imo it's does a good job with the hype and characters.

Utatane Sunshine
Unlimited Tone
Tanaka-kun wa Itsumo Kedarakute
SpoilerShow
It's rare that a slice of life OP actually gives us a sense of the world we're about to be plunged into. Yet Tanaka-kun's OP does it in such a nice, subtle way that you almost don't notice it. Check out how many shots are not of the characters themselves, but of their surroundings, their interactions. This show had an OP that advertised heavily an emphasis on character-to-character relationships, and it does it such an attractive way.

This was the first song that I've heard by UTW (Unlimited Tone Works), but their low-instrument harmony-focused singing has already won my heart over.

Look how swag they look. Seriously.
And by the time you're at the chorus, you can already feel the warm, bright sunshine in your ears.

The poll is posted! This one will last two weeks, so you have plenty of time! I suggest (if you don't do this already) to listen to all of the contestants before making your decision!
