Favorite/Best VN openings

Recommended Posts

Haven't seen this topic around, the opening movie of a VN usually hypes me up for it. So what's either your favorite opening or the one you think is the best. My favorite is the opening of Dengeki Stryker and the one i think is the best is Kamidori's one, great music and awesome visuals in that one.

Rewrite OP is great for sure and I agree for Grisaia too.

btw I really like Mahoyo opening, quite different from the classic opening with a lot of sprites presenting the cast on a voiced japanese ost.

However it's the only visual novel I've seen with such a style for the opening, so apart from that,

Shikkoku No Sharnoth :

Umineko No Naku Koro Ni:

Ef - A Fairy Tale Of The Two :

And Muv-Luv Alternative obviously :

I forgot about Ef's opening... I love it. I honestly preferred traditional Muv-Luvs opening because it was the first and last piece of music you hear leaving an impression.

Umineko has around 5 openings I think, and every one of them have a surreal atmosphere just like the game, so I like them.

 

However, (maybe since this was my second VN without gameplay, the first being Ever17) this is my favorite:

Also, it is possible that I got used to it after going through it 30+ times... but I really like it for some reason.

 

 

Edit: S;G has a great opening too. My favorite BGM in an opening video though, is this:

I need a top 5 for this. Interestingly enough, a lot of my favorites are for untranslated games (some of which I've played, some I haven't).

 

1. Rakuen no Tobira (euphoria)

 

 

2. Fractale (Dark Blue)

 

 

3. Distorted Pain (Gore screaming Show)

 

 

4. Little Busters! (Little Busters!)

 

 

5. Aka no Sora (Oni Uta)

 

 

There are more, but these were the first to come to mind. Darker/more serious games almost always have the best openings, imo. (Key stuff is an exception to that rule though; I could have filled a whole list with their stuff)

I've never actually seen one.

I always skip them due to their spoiler-ish nature.

Ah that's true, I've never really thought about that before, but openings do have a lot of semi spoilers in them.

Tawn is more or less correct.  The more serious the story, the more likely the opening is going to be good.  Moege tend to have openings that are carbon copies of other moege openings...

I forgot how sexy Mahoyo's opening music was for that sequence. The entire game is pretty much like that by the way, although there's text during the rest of the game. 

 

Soukoku also has an amazing opening, although I never really got in to the game.

I only judge OP's by the song quality/style; it's great if the video part matches well, but I think of that more as a nice side-effect.

 

Anyway:

 

 

I liked the Flyable Heart op song, too, but I assume you've already heard it.
