Striking The Right Note: Witch Hunter Robin

There’s a reason this 2002 series has such staying power. Not only does the animation have a look and feel to it that keeps it from becoming easily dated, but the story itself is simply amazing. Best of all, the music is incredible.

The opening sequence, which invokes a music video sensation, is set to “Shell”, by supergroup Bana, giving it a much stronger feel than I think any other choice of music would have accomplished. Not just that, but the visuals create a stunning short story all their own, urging you join the series and find out what the larger story has to say.

The real accomplishment of the opening sequence, however, is that it creates an entire world in under two minutes. Which is a real feat, if you ask me. That world it creates is one that begs you to lose yourself in it, as well, making this a perfect opening for a story that has some series meat to chew on.

In the event you’ve never seen Witch Hunter Robin, you’ll want to after you see this.
