Anime of 2012: OP/ED and Music (part 3)

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

Kokoro Connect ED2
I like the ED for most of Kokoro Connect, but I think it's the second one that stuck with me the most. Always seems to connect nicely to the end of the episode.

Shinsekai Yori ED
Unfortunately I can't find the version of the ED from the later episodes which has actual animation instead of this (pretty much) static image.

Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun OP, ED
A nice happy song from Tomatsu Haruka. If this Sphere thing doesn't work out, I think she makes a good solo artist. The ED with its soft visuals and shoujo-ish song kind of reminds me of Honey, one of Cardcaptor Sakura's ED.

Chuunibyou Demo Koi ga Shitai Lite OP/ED / Main OP
Somehow, the 'Lite' series has more appropriate OP and ED. The OP hints at the more serious issues, while the ED is pure moe chuunibyou. The OP of the main series, however, has interesting (though seizure-inducing) visuals. Perhaps its meant to symbolize eye patch blocking one eye? And scenes with both sides symbolizing the real world on one side and Rikka's chuunibyou world on the other?

Onii-chan Dakedo Ai Sae Areba Kankeinai yo ne OP
OK, OK, hear me out! The catchy song is Self-Producer, by Chihara Minori.

Sukitte ii na yo OP
A really sweet yet sorrowful song.

Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo ED
It has nice sketchy visuals that plays well into the mid-season arc climax.

An OP by director Yamamoto Sayo and ED song written by ryo and sung by chelly (EGOIST). Pretty damn good.
