The setting: a remote village in Japan.

Blood-C isn’t one of the shows that I was most eagerly looking forward to this season. It does, however, have an interesting pedigree, so I have watched the first three episodes to see how it turned out. Short answer: I am intrigued, but still unsure where this one is going. As the title of this post suggests, this review was written after watching episodes 1 through 3.

Here it is! Part Four of the 2011 OP (opening credit) collection. This will be the final installment of this series (links to earlier parts: One, Two, Three). I’m going to include here what I can of the remaining OPs of the season. Sometimes it is not possible to include a show, because I can’t track down a copy on Youtube. I’ll finish by citing my favorite OPs of the season, but really, check them out for yourself, as your taste might be quite different.

The shows covered in this post are presented in alphabetical order (not personal preference!):

  1. Dantalian no Shoka
  2. IdolM@ster
  3. Itsuka Tenma no Kuro Usagi
  4. Manyuu Hiken-chou
  5. Nichijou (OP 2)
  6. Tiger & Bunny (OP 2)

Part Three of the 2011 OP (opening credit) collection is coming your way. For those who missed them, here are links to part 1 and part 2. This time we have more of a mix of genres, including some action shows as well as more RomComs (because anime is like that). Before we get to the music, I do want to point out that I depend on others to upload these to YouTube, so if the show hasn’t aired, or nobody has uploaded the OP, or if Viz Media blocks the OP, because they think they can squeeze a few extra pennies out of a show, I can’t provide the link here.

The shows covered in this post are presented in alphabetical order (not personal preference!):

  1. Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu 2
  2. Kamisama Dolls
  3. Mawaru Penguin Drum
  4. Nekogami Yaoyorozu
  5. No. 6
  6. R-15

I want to do something a little different this season, so I am going to try to collect many of the OP (Opening credit sequences) for shows airing this season. I won’t provide too much commentary just a few thoughts that come to mind. Anyways, this is an experiment, so listen to some music already! Since I am going to rely on youtube videos, these are partially dictated by the broadcast schedule, and then whether anyone has posted them for linking.

The shows covered in this post are presented in alphabetical order (not personal preference!):

  1. Blade
  2. Blood-C
  3. Hanasaku Iroha (OP 2)
  4. Ikoku Meiru no Croisée
