I'm a sucker for slow/love/nostalgic songs, so it's EDs for me.

CUE BLAST FROM THE PAST

Aru Ga Mama by Anamu and Maki for Nabari no Ou is really good. The Fairy Tail endings are great too! Come to think of it, Fractale's ending is really good too. And so is Kuragehime's! Endings rock!

Opening - I mean it will be the majority and win, it's what gets you excited for the show. I wish back in the 90's instead of redoing and botching up an opening in English, American bands and musicians would have their music put it. The only ones I can think of is the Red Hot Chilli Peppers in Beck Live Action, and Mariah Carey in You're Under Arrest Live Action.

oh man comparing openings and endings are like comparing apples to oranges
They're too different to choose a favorite from sad
They both can be absolutely wonderful though

I prefer the EDs. They're usually sillier and more amusing things to watch. I'll watch the show for the flashy stuff. Though it really depends on the show.

Quote from SilverStorm
I skip the songs. So "none."

^ What he said. But since I have to vote and "don't watch anime" dosn't apply, I voted OP because I often actually dislike the ED (too peaceful music)

Endings for me. This extends to dramas, too.

No one is telling you to compare. The question asks which of the two you tend to like more.

No, you didn't. In fact, you said something rather silly.


Quote from MinM66
The pole makes no sense... "Which do you tend to like more" ... Uh whichever has the better song? .. really terrible poll -_- I look forward to these, and I am fully disappointed this time...

I think endings should be subtle and calm. Entry song makes a better impression though. It should be a powerful one. So i vote for Opening.

BTW some of my fav openings includes that of Cowboy Bebop, Trigun, Bento, Baccano!, Darker than black etc...

Both the opening and ending tend to be the weakest parts of an anime.

This is why I don't really watch anime anymore.

Most people don't watch the endings so I'd say that's the reason why OP is winning. But it depends. I guess the opening has to be more upbeat and catchy compared to the ending. I like most music so yeah....both can do well.

normally i skip both OP's and ED's since jpop isn't really my thing. occasionally i'll like a track or animation sequence here and there, though (op of cowboy bebop comes to mind...and that entire soundtrack)

my most favorite OP ever that i always watched and never ever skipped, though, was Eden of the East's.

I have a special place in my heart for both OP and ED songs and animations.I tend to watch the OP more, thougjh that isn't much of a basis for choosing one or the other; I loved all of the songs from the first FMA series for instance... though now that I think about it, I guess I like ED songs better... if only because of this. (ignoring the animation anyway.)... Or this... or this.

There are a lot of good ones, now I think about it.Though my favorite opening has to be this one. I'm probably biased, though, since this song is the reason I found JDA in the first place... plus, Black Jack.

I currently like tegami bachi's 2nd OP theme -
"Rabu Retaa no Kawari ni Kono Uta o. (Instead of a Love Letter, Take This Song.)"

for ED, I love sakamichi no Apollon's "Altair" and Hakuoki's "Akane Sora ni Negau"

my all time favorite though is "One more time, One more chance" from 5cm per second.
