TOP Anime OP ED Countdown #20

Shingeki no Kyojin OP 1
(Attack of Titan)

“Guren no Yumiya (紅蓮の弓矢)” by Linked Horizon

used as OP for episode 1 – 13.

Do I really need to explain this opening?

The music itself is not necessarily well-sung, but definitely to convey a sense of grandeur, a sentiment that is much needed for this anime. Compared to the rest of the anime, pictures in OP uses a darker hue, and the animation uses the flashing technique (briefly show one scene and then change it with a flash).

The overall effect … very well-done.

  1. Yeah, I agree that this song really gives off a grand, ‘charge into battle’ kind of feel. I tried listening to some of the band’s other music, but away from the animation of SnK it just didn’t do it for me. I saw they’ve done music for games too (seems appropriate).
