Anime of 2012: OP/ED and Music (part 2)

Second part in this long list of anime OP and ED nominations!

Sankarea OP, ED
A nano.RIPE song for the OP, and a beautiful song from annabel for the ED? Great choice of songs! The animation and song in the ED is hauntingly good...

Fate/Zero season 2 OP/ED
The second season's OP and ED continues to be really good. Top quality songs paired with nice visuals, though the ED is nothing more than a slide show...

Lupin the Third: Mine Fujiko to Iu Onna OP
Not much of a song, but the music is beautiful, lyrics amazing, and animation just oozing with style!

Sakamichi no Apollon OP
I love the build up in this song. The singer is YUKI, formerly of JUDY AND MARY fame. You would probably know them from this song.

Tsuritama OP
Hey, its a weird dance with a catchy tune! That's probably what the kids like these days.

Hyouka OP1, OP2, ED2
If I didn't know better, I would have guessed KyoAni hired Shinkai Makoto to do their backgrounds because its really detailed and nice in both OP. The ED is just an excuse to see the cast in nice appropriate cosplay, but it also has a nice song sung by the seiyuus, Satou Satomi and Kayano Ai.

Jinrui wa Suita Shimashita OP
Weird and wonderful OP with a catchy tune.

Yuru Yuri season 2 OP
Please allow me to put this one guilty pleasure on the list. Love the cast of characters (and seiyuu), and hence the song.

Kono Naka ni Hitori, Imouto ga Iru OP
OK I lied. Another guilty pleasure, primarily because its a song by STYLIPS.

Sword Art Online OP
The song is Crossing Field by LiSA.

Part 3 can here found here.
