Last updated on March 2nd, 2022 at 01:15 pm

Attack on Titan or Shingeki no Kyojin is undoubtedly one of the most appreciated anime out there. Not only its intense storyline, but its epic soundtracks are also highly rated and recognized. Keeping that in mind, we present to you the Best AOT Openings Ranked.  

 Hiroyuki Sawano, the composer of the franchise, makes sure that he delivers the finest OSTs in the anime industry. He takes inspiration from orchestral music and combines it with elements of rock, producing the epical atmosphere that we find in the anime.

The openings of the anime embody this grandiose theme as well and present some of the best songs in anime history. Here, each opening song tells a story that relates to either the character or the anime plot itself. 

Keeping the hype of the upcoming new season in mind, we have decided to rank the AOT openings from good to certified bangers.

Ranking these masterpieces is not only difficult but also unfair. But for our readers, we have decided to bear the burden of listing our picks for the Best AOT Openings Ranked. 

Best AOT Openings Ranked-

  • 6) Opening 4 “Red Swan”-

“Red Swan” might be the calmest and the most soothing opening of Attack on Titan. Performed by Yoshiki featuring Hyde, this opening of the third season takes us down memory lane, and we get glimpses of the cast in their childhood. 

In this opening, we see the main characters reminiscing about and looking back at their past selves. Moreover, we get to rewatch little Eren here, who was once full of life and devoid of the suffering he later faces. The music itself is very melancholic which compliments the tone of the music video beautifully. 

  • 5) Opening 5 “Shoukei to Shikabane no Michi”-

“Shoukei to Shikabane no Michi” of season 3 is almost a musical blend of all the openings of previous seasons of Attack on Titan. Revo of Linked Horizon sings this orchestra-heavy, action-packed song. 

The music video shows the exact things that are going to happen in this season in its entirety. It was not only full of spoilers but also foreshadowed a lot of important events that would occur in the later episodes.

The intensity of the song matches perfectly with the energy of the anime and, the gripping atmosphere of the video helps elevate fans’ excitement to new heights.

  • 4) Opening 2 “Jiyuu no Tsubasa”–

Linked Horizon comes forward with marching band vibes in this song. The German bits add to the national anthem feel, setting the mood of the song. 

The music video narrates the story of the second part of the first season of Attack on Titan in great detail. Here, we can see important parts of the anime and have an idea of where the story will go in the future. 

This can easily be considered one of the best AOT songs as it is still a favorite of many fans. The song successfully portrays the extreme journey of Eren as part of the Levi squad with its intensity. 

  •  3) Opening 1 “Guren no Yumiya”-

Certainly, one of the best songs ever created, Guren no Yumiya, has become a classic in the anime industry. Another hit by Linked Horizon, this song was an instant success when it was first introduced. 

This opening completely showcased the type of anime AOT is and will become later. The song itself starts with heavy beats and continues to grow intense. Fans absolutely love this song and we doubt anybody can fight the desire to yell out “jäger” while listening to it.

  • 2) Opening 3 “Shinzo wo Sasageyo”-

One of, if not the best AOT songs ever is “Shinzo wo Sasageyo”, again performed by none other than Revo from Linked Horizon. When it comes to making heroic songs, AOT never misses. 

The catchy chorus and steady build-up of this song are what make it so memorable. According to many fans, this song even makes them feel patriotic and willing to go to war alongside Eren. 

  • 1) Opening 6 “My War”-

Accepted by many as the best song of Attack on Titan, My War is one of the most peculiar songs ever made. When it first dropped, the reactions of the fans were mixed. 

Ardent fans of Linked Horizon refused to accept this as the official song of AOT. But, with a few more listens and after witnessing the progress of the story fans knew, this was the most suitable.

The song embodies chaos. The frantic quality of the music makes sense when we witness Eren’s character transformation in this season.

The success of this song rightfully made the band Shinsei Kamattechan, one of the most beloved in the anime community.
