An anime opening or intros could either build or break a show’s momentum and viewer’s impressions. These songs and animation sequence could transport us into a trance moment within the anime itself where one could feel ambiguous excitement, epic emotional clashes, and overflowing ambiance of the anime’s plot. We all get transported into something surreal, an experience that we feel when we finally get caught by an enormous force, so addicting that you don’t have any option but to dive into the story.

Soul Land / Douluo Dalu Opening – The Land Of Warriors by Jam Hsiao
The Land of Warriors by Jam Hsiao is the catchy and epic opening theme of Soul Land (Douluo Dalu) and it has been used for the first 60 episodes of the anime. It’s just energetic and definitely gives justice to how epic the fight scenes of Soul Land is.
I’m Joybo Opening – Bu Xiang Bing by Er Hou Sheng
On a personal note, this song titled 不想病 – 贰后生 “Bu Xiang Bing (不想病)” by Er Hou Sheng is my favorite entry in this list. It’s one of the reason why I’m Joybo hold a very special place in my heart and why it is one of my personal favorite Chinese anime series of all time. The song is both catchy with heartbreaking lyrics that I think reverberates with I’m Joybo’s plot.
9 Songs of the Moving Heavens
The soundtrack for this is called 心之逆鳞 (Xīn Zhī Nì Lín). While it may not be your own cup of tea but it’s definitely mystical in any ways and just purely beyond beautiful, fascinating, and beautifully animated. The song is truly something that could’ve been made in heaven, isn’t it?
The Legend of Qin Opening
If there’s anything that could be more beautiful, mystical, poetic and magical than this song, I wonder what it would be? Moonlight by Anson Hu is The Legend of Qin (Qin’s Moon) in-house opening song for most of its seasons and the emotions behind it is just beyond what I could comprehend.
Lu’s Time Opening – Exceeding the Limits
This is one is just purely insane and lit. I had been pulled by this song in to watch the anime the very first time that I heard it on YouTube. It’s pretty catchy, strong, and energetic.
Soul Land Season 2 不抛弃,不 放弃 by Oner
Just when I thought that Jam Hsiao Land of Warriors (Soul Land 1st Opening Theme Song) is epic enough, I was totally blown by how catchy and mild this one is. Definitely loving the current opening theme song of Soul Land (Douluo Dalu) which had been used since the 60th episode until now.
Martial Universe Opening
We have Martial Universe here, and this anime is quite notorious for having some of the best soundtrack that I’ve ever heard from a Chinese anime series. Almost everything about Martial Universe and its music were just epic AF.
Psychic Princess Opening
Hilarious AF and quite revolutionary in its own, this addicting anime opening theme song is called “The Princess of the Spirit” and was performed by Lei Minmin Ci. This opening theme had been a huge craze among Chinese anime fans when Psychic Princess aired.
Grandmaster of Demonic Cultivation Opening
Here we have an enchanting Chinese song titled “醉梦前尘, Zui Meng Qian Chen” paired with beautifully animated drawings and scenery from 2018’s best Chinese anime – Mo Dao Zu Shi (The Grandmaster of Demonic Cultivation).
