Top 10 Anime Opening Songs of the Spring 2023 Season

Here are our top 10 anime openings of the Spring Season in 2023.

10. “Never Say Never”

Name of AnimeEdens Zero 2nd Season
Name of Singer/BandTakanori Nishikawa
Number of ViewsTBA (Not Uploaded Officially)

“Never Say Never” falls into a mediocre anime opening category. The opening song of Season 1 of Edens Zero was a banger, the same couldn’t be replicated for Season 2. The opening follows mediocre videography, mostly just the new characters introduced in the sequel.

The vocals are always good because most Anisongs, or Japanese songs, generally have good and meaningful lyrics. But the videography takes it down to number 10 in the ranking of the best anime opening.

9. “Unmei Kyoudoutai”

Name of AnimeThe Cafe Terrace and Its Goddesses
Name of Singer/BandNeriame
Number of Views590,000+

“Unmei Kyoudoutai” was this season’s underdog opening song, primarily ignored by the audience because this anime series was Ecchi genre (not the most popular genre). The videography and vocals of this opening are done pretty well, and the opening is fun to watch.

The second part of the opening does feel slightly off in terms of videography, but this anime opening was one of the best of the Spring Season. On the other hand, the anime was just okay, with its primary focus on the Ecchi genre.
