Eroge Anime OP Legends

tomoko_hoshina_mizugi_aqua_blue.jpg

A video compilation of many memorable OPs from anime that were originally derived from eroge.

Many favorites such as To Heart, Nanoha, and Key series make an appearance, spanning over a decade’s worth of eroge anime.

Remember, you can turn off comments by hitting the cute chick in the bottom right…


There are a few too many titles to list, but if you are truly dying to find out a show’s name feel free to ask below in the comments and I’m sure I or someone else will be glad to help.

Regarding Nanoha’s presence here, even several Japanese commentators on Nico seem to be unaware that the Nanoha series is actually a spin-off of the Triangle Heart eroge and OVA series started around 2000, meaning Nanoha actually has eroge roots and so qualifies.

Also, I was surprised to see that Popotan is nearly 6 years old by now – it seems like it came out just yesterday…

    Recognized quite a few.

    But, would someone be kind enough to undertake the tedious task of making a complete list?

    Not the obvious ones and the ones with English names but everything else.

    Clannad was not an eroge per se, as it had no ero scenes, unlike Kanon or Air. Tomoyo After did have some ero-scenes, though.

    No one would've blinked at Clannad being included since "eroge" frequently just means any sort of visual novel, but the creator seemed to use a tighter definition.

    In Nanoha's defense, they should have posted KOTOKO's Trust You're Truth~明日を守る約束~ because that was the OP for Triangle Heart the anime (OVA). It's only Nanoha's _character_ that was based on eroge, not the anime.

    Though innocent starter is definitely a better choice.

    Nevermind, figured it out. It even says it, dammit.

    All of the opening songs here sound like they were sung by women on several gallons of helium, except for Demonbane's OP, which sounds like it was sung by a man on several gallons of BADASS.

    I wonder if the quality of the opening song positively correlates with the quality of the anime...?

    They have separated comment "channels" though, a comment made with a Spanish account will (by default) only be seen by other Spanish accounts.
    You can still switch to the Japanese site and comment there, but at least this shows that the management IS concerned about such things...
