Finals week is coming down the pipeline for some of us burdened college students, and all the combined forces of heaven and Earth cannot stop this onslaught of dreary-eyed, sleep-deprived horror. So instead, dear fan, I make a present of this, a fine, fine video, made by one on the Internet who has much too much time on their hands, much unlike myself. It has gone viral and spread like lice in a large middle school, infecting the headlines of the majority of the anime blogs in this series of tubes. Shockingly, the video is terrifyingly SPOT-ON when it comes to these openings, as I’ve bloody-well yet to see an anime that HASN’T used at least one of these tropes in their opening sequence, and believe me when I say I know my anime openings!
So, loving fan, I bid you “sayonara” as I turn my back to the waking world and face the near-Lovecraftian depths that is studying for finals! Tune in next week for more Happy Fun Thursdays! Wish me luck!
Yours in deep lamentation,
Paolo Jasa, Doomed College Student.
P.S.: For the curious and the obsessive compulsive, here is a list of the anime that have been used in the video.
