Guren no Yumiya is also known as The Crimson Bow and Arrow is the first opening of the phenomenal post-apocalyptic action anime Attack on Titan. It’s even considered by most anime fans in different forums and anime communities as one of the most epic anime music ever released.
It’s lyrics simply resonate the plot of Attack on Titan telling about the courageous armies fighting against the gigantic enemy of mankind, the Titans. It also has the vibes of narrating how humans will eventually reverse their current situation and eventually hunts the Titans down as their prey rather than being the foods of the insurmountable monsters that brought humanity on the brink of extinction.
The upbeat rhythm and astounding usage of heavy instruments are a major part of the song and can be observed in every stanza. It feels like listening to Guren no Yumiya makes you think that you’re fighting those Titans by yourselves or gives you the thought of doing something really epic.
And as a tribute to this epic anime song, here’s a compilation of some of the best covers of Guren no Yumiya from different anime singers on the internet.
