  1. Wow, you’re definitely a fan of Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei ^_^. I really like the nice and stylish animation for the OPs. ‘Lily Cure Go Go’ looks like a parody of Pretty Cure lols… I also found the Pani Poni Dash OP interesting because I’m a fan of vectors ^_^. We also share some favorites too like ‘Discotheque’ and ‘Forever we can make it!’ (though I don’t like the animes) as well as ‘Lonely in Gorgeous’. I love your list 🙂 I guess your a fan of mainstream J-pop.

  2. Thepoop,

    Yes, we have some favorite music in common 🙂 Indeed, Discotheque is a nice tune 🙂

    SZS has really great music! 🙂 I have not heard other tracks by THYME, but I enjoyed the OP 🙂 Yes, Bartender OP is good, but not many people might have heard it because the anime is not very well known.

    Yes, I am a big fan of SZS 😀 Yup, I think that was a parody to Pretty Cure. I liked both the music and art in Pani Poni Dash OP 🙂 haha I like those song, but watched only a couple of episodes of To Love Ru and Rosario to Vampire also 🙂 Mainstream J-pop? lol This list features only one type of music I like, but there are many others 😉

  3. Thanks for the link, but honestly, when I made that list I don’t know what I was thinking…
    Looking at yours, you really have a great collection of videos! Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei is the best! I love the art style and its retro like music for both its openings and endings.
    You have inspired me to refine my horrible list, which I’m going to start working on now!

  4. Thank you, Lostty 🙂 Yes, Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei art and music are excellent 🙂

    I am glad that I inspired you, but I don’t think your list is horrible – I enjoyed those openings 🙂
