What's an anime without a catchy intro?! Let's take a minute to think about the intros to shows in America compared to the intros for anime. I think there's no comparison to be made. Hands-down, anime intros are much, much better! They're extremely upbeat, they have very memorable songs and they really pump you up for the show you're about to watch!
If an anime doesn't have a great intro song, you know that something is up. I can't trust an anime that doesn't kick things off with a great song. Some of those intros might wow me right off the bat, and others might grow on me as time continues, but I can't think of a single anime intro I've come across that I absolutely hated.
It might sound silly, but those anime intros mean a lot to to the success of an anime. That catchy tune sticks in the minds of fans, and it keeps the series fresh. I know I can't be the only one that gets a rush of excitement when I hear the intro song for an anime I'm currently watching. It puts a smile on my face and makes me really appreciate what I'm watching!
Just how important do you think anime intros are? I definitely believe them to be an absolutely necessary staple when it comes to the anime experience. It's a bit of pride that the creators get to show in their series, with a bit more time and money put into really selling the quality of the show.
