7. Mekakucity Actors opening

Mekakucity Actors opening


I don’t usually add new shows to my list, but Mekakucity Actors was a special exception. The show’s concept was bizarre–it was based on a cheesy tune sung by the famous virtual anime idol, Hatsune Miku. This opening turned the song into something completely different–a show about psychic teenagers who wear hoodies.

Sure, I’ve seen plenty of other cool shows with kids wearing hooded sweatshirts. However, the animation style had a colorful, abstract style of its own. The kids looked more like badass graffiti experts. The opening also showed off plenty of allusions to some of the darker scenes in the series. This was a daring, stylish sequence for a show based on a goofy song.
