Re: Favorite Themes of 2009

Ummm...that's a toughie, actually. I'll have to think about this...

It was just so contradicting to the feel of the show, plus it was awesome.


Ending theme wise? Those are definitely harder for me to recall, as I normally only watch one ending once for every four openings...if that makes sense.

Re: Favorite Themes of 2009

I dropped GA after I figured out it was a poor effort to try and match Hidamari Sketch, a far superior series. Not that GA was bad or anything, it was just trying way too hard.

Speaking of which,

Another great 2009 opening.




Hey, it aired in 2009, thus it's a 2009 opening.

I liked Eden of The East's opening theme myself. Loved the choice of music.

Except that it wasn't, right? To be fair, I thought the same thing at first, but there's two big differences, GA is actually about art, and it's much more frenetic and fast-paced than HidaSketch, really it's could be more aptly compared to Azumanga. I do like Hidamari better though, mostly x365, but not by a lot.

I was thing about throwing the x365 OP and ED too, but the main series was '08, so I decided not to.

EDIT: If we're counting Toradora, which I could buy,

Re: Favorite Themes of 2009

But GA was just so...it didn't introduce the characters right, and the only things art related it focused on was the actual utensils, materials and paint. No art styles were focused on, and it then decided it wanted to be a comedy, thus shoving what it had developed aside for some slapstick.

Yeah, that's why I thought it was trying too hard. I wouldn't compare it to Azu either, as everyone tries to for every SoL series. e.g. Pani Poni is more like Negima and Excel Saga, not Azumanga Daioh and Excel Saga.

I think PreParade is far superior to ToraDora's second opening, but I didn't count it, as the opening originally aired in 2008.

Sure, but it's not really a 2009 anime, so you let in the one you let in the other.

Also I don't want to talk about GA in this thread, if you'd start it's own thread I be happy to continue. If not though, I don't GA is "trying" to be anything, and should be watched for it's own sake.

I HIGHLY recommend this series! :spazz:

"Mizunokuchi Taiyou Zoku" by manzo

And I'm sure this one is obvious:

"Marukaite Chikyuu" by Daisuke Namikawa
