Today in nostalgia: Early 2000s anime openings

March 5, 2013 at 10:27 pm (Nostalgia) (, , , )

The anime of the early 2000s came off the wave made by titles like Great Teacher Onizuka, Cowboy Bebop, and Weiss Kreuzz. On the other hand, this generation would lead on to things like Samurai Champloo, Code Geass, and Soul Eater.

For people like me, who were in high school at the time, anime was all about how no overwhelming world-destroying force couldn’t be defeated with a steadfast heart and a ragtag group of friends (except for things like Wolf’s Rain. Because sometimes, world’s just got to end).
