Anime opening video appreciation 5 - How about the rewatchables?

Anime that excel above the rest are placed into the category called "rewatchables". The requirements for entering this group are -

1) You can (or, even better, you want to) watch it again from start to end. (Rewatching only certain parts does not count.)
2) You are able to recommend it to other people who don't watch Anime.

Anime opening video appreciation 4 - Negative examples Part 1: Down the retro back alley of sh*t!

Yes, thanks to certain few opening videos, I have long decided to create this post. Well I have talked about Hidan no Aria already, but that wasn't the only horrible-to-hell-and-back video I have watched.

And yes, there will be a part 2. But since I was looking at the retro stuff, I might as well bring up the horrible ones that I came across along the way, so all of these will form "part 1".

That moment when you realize Bose doesn't do cables

So, in terms of BS-ness, Bose < Monster < the rest of the audio industry?

Anime opening video appreciation 3 - Down the retro lane!

Let's look at something different for a change of pace. Let's look at stuff from when TV was still 4:3, plus some 16:9 content from during the 4:3-to-16:9 transition period. Includes lots of stuff from before BitTorrent became prevalent, or probably even before torrents were invented.

Also includes some newer stuff that somehow ended up here and I'm just going to cover them anyway to make my life easier.

I can tell you... you better appreciate me going through these old-age stuff... and I'm not being tsundere. Some of those stuff are painful to watch by today's standards. Believe me when I say Anime has improved a lot over the years (and is till improving), so stop getting stuck in the past.

On the other hand, there are some old Anime (opening videos) that are still watchable by today's standards, and the good ones have this feel that is just not being reproduced today. In fact, many videos are good enough that I remembered why I used to enjoy watching opening videos. While technology has improved over the years, you cannot use that to replace art.

Because there are some videos that are way better than others, some that are still decent now, and some that are good for their time, I'm going to talk about the first two groups separately and leave out the third, because with about 150 videos to go through this time the list can get quite long if I include everything that I find are entertaining.
