Really dude? Really? You're really saying that without irony?

i only watch anime subtitles so only know the Japanese ones. of the few English openings i know, it would have to be the first Pokemon theme. great stuff

direkiller:
3. Cyborg 009

(its from the DVD but it was used for the English version)

Off topic, you've just reminded me of the best anime ending ever. Ever.

On topic, Rock the Dragon was pretty darn good. Usually I prefer Japanese openings, both that was honestly pretty darn good. I kind of like the more cutesy "head-cha-la" more than the Westernization of Dragon Ball Z in general. Heck, I've never been a big Dragon Ball Z fan(nor shounen action anime in general). But the English soundtrack was pretty darn good, from the intro to Bruce Faulconers localization tracks. You could really tell that Westerners saw something hip and badass and somehow fresh out of Toriyama's old cartoon that even he didn't.

Also, the Xam'd intro technically counts.

Casual Shinji:
Samurai Pizza Cats, bitches!

The only anime show ever to be improved by dubs.

OH THE MEMORIES.

That was one of my first anime. I swear this exemplifies me learning at an early age what I loved and wanted out of life. Why did I ever abandon my childhood self?

Karutomaru:

Except Yu Yu Hakusho, One Piece, Bobobo, Naruto, and Hunter X Hunter, among others.

I'd argue against Bobobo being improved by the dub.....well I'd probably argue against all of them as I naturally tend to prefer subs but Bobobo in particular.

The humour of Bobobo is based around things that are seriously lost in translation, never to be found again, which results in it coming off as "stupid funny" rather than "funny funny". It'd be like if somebody took Gintama and gave it an English dub. It wouldn't be anywhere near as funny.

When this show was being aired I didn't even yet make the distinction whether or not it came from Japan. To me it was just a cartoon.

Technically speaking this was probably one the first animes I ever saw.

*sigh* I miss the days when anime was allowed to not be overly stylized.

:/ it saddens me that i've never watched that show while eating pizza

You thought Naruto was improved by dubs?

Yes. I do. And I can prove it. I know anything and everything there is to know about Viewtiful Joe to the point of being able to recite the scripts to episodes of the anime.

That's impressive.

On a topical note, I'm surprised you didn't add the OP to the anime on your list. There's some Japanese in it but the majority of the lyrics are in English.

I dunno man....he even said that One Piece and Naruto were improved by their english dubs. Surely such madness cannot go overlooked? Who knows what could come of it?

If you two don't actually know each other in real life, then I find this amusing and sorta sweet. If you do know each other, then it's mostly amusing.

But dude... I think I'd feel weird trying to be a bro. Crashing your bro fest.

We don't know each other IRL but hey, a bro's a bro :P

Just how sweet are we talking about? :D

Serial experiments lain:

I post this because I know that Tank! from cowboy bebop has already been done.

Karutomaru, I love your threads. "Discuss, but don't discuss things I don't like."

On topic: for sheer nostalgia value (NOSTALGIA IN A KARUTOMARU THREAD?! BURN IT WITH FIRE!!) and because Powerglove recently did and awesome power metal version with vocals by the singer of Sonata Arctica, the original Pokémon opening.

Sheer badassitude.

The fail is strong with this thread... although the Star Blazers, Hellsing, Cowboy B, Lain, Gits some others... try to uplift the thing...

let me add...

and

this

shit... why not this?

Enjoy!

When I looked at this thread i was intrigued to see that there was an anime called "Case Closed."But after watching that intro, I am severely disappointed.
Out of those intros though, I have to pick the Pokemon intro because the rest of them were kind of bad.

Hazy992:
Dragon Soul's too cheesy (it's slightly better in Japanese). Real men listen to Rock The Dragon

Also, why in the fuck did the captcha ask me what my education level was?

I see both of your openings and raise you this one.

Observation: Balls, someone did beat me to it. Ah well... there's always this. :D

SageRuffin:

Is that Shing02?
Also, I see your opening and raise you Beyblade.

Hazy992:
Is that Shing02?

Indeed it is. Saw him in concert once and got an autograph. Pretty awesome.

And, much like Yu-Gi-Oh!, I could never get into Beyblades. And that intro reminds me of The Offspring for some reason...

Tokoyopop American opening for Initial D

I think this song is able to capture the spirit of the Initial d. Who else agrees with me?

A Weakgeek:
An ENGLISH opening? Who the hell do you think I am?

THIS. COPIOUS AMOUNTS OF THIS.
