Winter 2016 Anime Awards – Openings & Endings

Following are embedded videos for five of my favorite lyrical picks for the Winter 2016 Anime Season. They aren’t in any particular order because I enjoy each of them for different reasons, and so it wouldn’t be fair to base rankings on credentials that favor certain ones.

Enjoy some アニソン after the jump!

Hello. I read animu and watch mangos. I love slice of life and emotional stuff. My favorite Pokemon move is Calm Mind but I'm not calm, mind you. I'm terrible with money and spend all of it on Yugioh cards and plastic waifus and my life is a mess, but actually yeah I do like spaghetti quite a bit.
