The Gymnastics Samurai – A Surprise Seasonal Hit!

Unexpectedly Good

If you don’t know by now I watch pretty much every father-daughter anime on the market so color me surprised when I discovered The Gymnastics Samurai was one such show, but not only that, it was SO MUCH more. After checking this out on a whim for the Fall 2020 season, I knew I had to stick with this one and I’m very glad that I did. Continue reading “The Gymnastics Samurai – A Surprise Seasonal Hit!”

The list is in no particular order and the only rule is that the opening has to have come from a show I’ve seen. Other than that, no repeats for stuff I’ve reviewed outside of honorable mentions. Obviously this is just my personal taste, so if an OP you love isn’t on the list I probably didn’t see the show or just didn’t like the opening that much ¯\_(ツ)_/¯  Continue reading “Top 25 Anime Openings”
