It's pretty damn obscure by this point, but I've always had a soft spot for the second Negima!? anime. Rather than throw on some subs and call it a day, the localization team went out of their way to dub the OPs and EDs. And what's more, they honestly don't sound half-bad.

There's plenty of highlights, but IMO the first ending takes the cake. It's really tranquil; makes me wish they did this more often. I wonder, is this what anime music sounds like to a Japanese ear?




Honorable mention goes to the third ED, wherein Laura Bailey proclaims her love for you in a duet with herself. <3

Edgy and grimdark but so skillful that I get totally pumped during it. Pretty much all the OPs for this show and its OVAs were great, but some of the endings were fairly weak.

Of course, I've always felt kind of a special attachment to Kurapika for the simple reason that my hair looks a lot like his (minus the anime stylishness) and this part of the anime was truly his place to shine.

You should really watch the show! It's very good, quite a feels trip when I first watched it a few years ago.

Who would've thought YouTube had such a sizable community for Russian anime fandubs? Most of 'em are really damn good, too.

Days like these, we could all use a little somethin' to calm our nerves. Fortunately, this song's always been there for me. c:

Never seen this anime, but I'll be damned. This OP is catchy as hell.



Edit: Aight... this is ED. But whatever! Haha

Trigun, anyone? The OP is honestly kinda crummy for such a good show, but the ending more than makes up for it. ^^

Edit: Jesus, just listening to it brought back a wave of nostalgia from when I used to sneak into my living room and quietly watch Adult Swim while my mom slept on the couch. Musta been, like, eight, nine years old? I'd pray she wouldn't wake up and yell at me to go to bed, and usually turned on Closed Captioning if she was having a particularly fitful sleep.

I'd like to say those were my halcyon years, but upon reflection I realize I was just too young to understand many of the problems that went on within my household. For all the extra responsibilities and experiences I've garnered through my time, I'm certainly much happier now than I would've been in childhood.

I really wanna re-watch this show now, just for old time's take. ;~;

I find this opening very good, but I think to like it a lot requires knowing the characters

Funny thing, I had watched many parody anime openings with this music, never knew it was from Evangelion, but now that I'm watching it I never skip it.

The legends were true. Should have watched it earlier.

It's an old anime, yet it's one of my favorite because the anime is an anime adaptation of Naoki Urasawa manga.
