Favorite opening animation
I really didn’t think I’d have much to say on this one… and I don’t.
After rewatching all the openings to make sure there really is more than one I’m going to go with OP2.
I really like those snap shots of the characters at the very beginning, it goes along very well with the music. There’s a decent amount of Hisoka. The random scenes are cutesy and amusing. E see some phantom troupe which is always fun and the only scenes that distinguish OP2 from OP3 are some fantastically animated actions scenes. In the 3 they are replaced by much more static shots of the phantom troupe members which are just not as fun to watch.
Is it a great op, naw, not really. It’s fun though, I let it play a lot.
Second place goes to OP5 which opened everyone’s favorite chimera ant arc (and for good reason). A pretty good op also, I enjoyed those background pop art animations in the first half, but it is sadly lacking in Hisokas and the animation is just not as enjoyable.
See told you I didn’t have much to say about this. Here enjoy all 6 openings and tell me which YOU like best!
In all seriousness I just did an impromptu karaoke party to those intros. Try it, i’ll make your day better.
Suggested drink: Intro to Aperol
- Every time the lyrics are in English – have a drink
- Every time the animation changes – have a drink
- Every time Hisoka shows up – raise your glass
- Every time Gon and Killua are together – have a drink of water
- Every time Ging shows up – take a swig
- Every time you start singing along – applaud yourself

Because HXH makes me feel like such a hipster since I watched the original series and read the manga back in the mid-00s, I’ll say my favorite opening theme would be Taiyou Wa Yoru Mo Kagayaku which is the 2nd opening from the original series.
I got on the bandwagon late so I saw the original after the remake.
Gotcha. It’s good you saw both though. I’ve met people that didn’t even know that the current anime was a remake. Back then, people would always say “What’s Hunter X Hunter?” To me when I would tell them about it because this was before the original was licensed. Now, all of a sudden, so many people know it. Don’t feel bad about getting on the bandwagon late though.
I think following your drinking challenge for this one would prove to be rather taxing!
The OPs weren’t bad, but they weren’t amazing, either. Hm…I guess I liked the third one the most because the creepy old guy smiled when the lyrics had “You Can Smile!”
Small things like that are nice.
Oh wait – you guys haven’t been doing the drinking games with alcohol have you? Oh no…That’s just crazy…
It’s the only way to play.
