2015 Anime – Top 12 ED Themes

Might as well jump straight into the ending themes, while I have the free time. 😀 Finding decent versions of each song on Youtube was harder this time around, so apologies in advance for any permanent ear damage the links may cause~

UtaPri is yet another music-themed series that failed to make my lists this time. :o

UtaPri is yet another music-themed series that failed to make my lists this time. 😮

12: Owari no Seraph (scaPEGoat” by SawanoHiroyuki[nZk]:Yosh)

[Vivid] Owari no Seraph - 03 [D33DBDED].mkv_snapshot_22.33_[2015.12.11_22.44.09]

Can’t win them all. 😛 I strongly prefer the full version of this song.

 

11: Rolling Girls (“Tsuki no Bakugekiki” by THE ROLLING GIRLS)

[Cthune] Rolling Girls - 06 [720p H264 AAC][A2A90CE4].mkv_snapshot_23.50_[2015.12.11_22.45.53]

Rolling Girls also makes both lists! Just a warning, the only version of the ED I could find on Youtube was from the final episode, so may contain spoilers if you haven’t watched it.

 

10: Charlotte (“Rakuen made” by Yusa Nishimori (Maaya Uchida))

[GJM-Mezashite] Charlotte - 04 [18243BEA].mkv_snapshot_23.01_[2015.12.11_22.47.23]

Not the series’ main ending theme, but while I did also like Tada Aoi’s “Yake Ochinai Tsubasa”, I find myself listening to Rakuen made far more often.

 

9: Shokugeki no Souma (“Sacchan no Sexy Curry” by Seiko Oomori)

[FFF] Shokugeki no Souma - 22 [3FB13C91].mkv_snapshot_23.08_[2015.12.11_22.49.16]

This one’s just hilariously good fun… unless you’re Sacchan. 😮

 

8: Lupin III (2015) (“Chanto Iwanakya Aisanai” by Sayuri Ishikawa)

[italianons] Lupin III (2015) 05 (TS 720p Hi10P) [9C6BFEE2].mkv_snapshot_22.11_[2015.12.11_22.50.20]

To make up for forgetting to include the Italian OP in yesterday’s post… okay, that’s a lie. This song’s actually good!

 

7: Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works S2 (“ring your bell” by Kalafina)

[Commie] Fate⁄stay Night Unlimited Blade Works S2 - 04 [0DE70367].mkv_snapshot_22.15_[2015.12.11_22.51.13]

Obligatory Kalafina~ And an honourable mention to Arslan Senki’s “One Light”, which didn’t quite make the cut.

 

6: Kekkai Sensen (“Sugar Song to Bitter Step” by Unison Square Garden)

[Vivid] Kekkai Sensen - 06 [2547DC74].mkv_snapshot_23.39_[2015.12.11_22.53.17]

While still on the subject of songs that didn’t make it, leaving out Bump of Chicken’s “Hello, world!” from the OP list was a hard decision. The ending theme easily deserves a place, though!

 

5: Ansatsu Kyoushitsu (“Hello, shooting-star” by moumoon)

[FFF] Assassination Classroom - 12 [3B3EFAE2].mkv_snapshot_22.42_[2015.12.11_22.54.41]

A really relaxing song, and I like how all the little drawings on the blackboard come together to form one big Koro-sensei head in the end. 🙂

 

4: Rokka no Yuusha (“Secret Sky” by MICHI)

[HorribleSubs] Rokka no Yuusha - 03 [720p].mkv_snapshot_22.58_[2015.12.11_22.57.12]

Another series that changed it’s ED themes every few episodes, but Secret Sky is my favourite by a long shot.

 

3: Subete ga F ni Naru (“Nana Hitsuji” by Scenarioart)

[DameDesuYo] Subete ga F ni Naru - 02 (1280x720 10bit AAC) [8FE548F0].mkv_snapshot_21.57_[2015.12.11_22.58.26]

Subete ga F ni Naru’s ending theme also places higher than it’s opening, and narrowly misses out on being my favourite ED of the Autumn season to:

 

2: Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans (“Orphans no Namida” by MISIA)

[HorribleSubs] Mobile Suit Gundam - Iron-Blooded Orphans - 07 [720p].mkv_snapshot_24.05_[2015.12.11_23.00.03]

This could be a James Bond theme song… but that’d be a waste, since I don’t really watch Bond movies.

 

1: Ranpo Kitan: Game of Laplace (“Mikazuki” by Sayuri)

[Flax] Ranpo Kitan - Game of Laplace - 01 (720p) [245802DC].mkv_snapshot_21.55_[2015.12.11_23.03.07]

And finally, keeping up the tradition of bad anime series often having some of the best music! About the only reason I kept Ranpo Kitan on. That and the cross-dressing.

That’s all for anime themes this year, now let’s see if I can get Week 10’s rankings up tomorrow, and make it three posts in three days! 😀

  1. “Ring your bell” is more Kalafina magic, so fitting for Fate anything. That ending for Food Wars cracked me up the first time I saw it! I also enjoyed the first, “Spice.”

    • The first Shokugeki ending theme was fun, I liked the cute animation sequence that went with it… no competition between the two themes if I could only pick one to include though, which is what I did in the end to spread the love a bit. 😛

    Darnit, so true! I also really loved the Ranpo Kitan ED but disliked the anime itself. Kekkai Sensen though – that was probably my favourite anime of 2015, and had a fabulous OP and ED both. Great soundtrack overall, now that I think about it.

    • I’m a terrible one for picking up and keeping on a series just because I like the music, regardless of how bad everything else might be, 😛

      Kekkai Sensen had the potential to be my favourite anime of 2015, but the wait for the final episode killed my enthusiasm a bit, and I struggled to remember a lot of what was going on. It should still feature in my Top 12 anime of 2015 list (yet to be finalized) though, and the music was sensational.

      • Artemis says:

        Yeah, that huge delay with the final episode for Kekkai Sensen was a real blow to the series. Still, when it came it wasn’t bad, and I’d rather wait for something decent than have instant gratification but get something below par.
