New Xam'd opening for TV broadcast – nearly but not quite as good

Remember Xam’d? It was hardly that long ago, it only ended it’s run about 2 months ago. Yet a poor second half to the season caused it to leave my mind rather quicker than it’s purely amazing first half deserved. Anywho, for the television broadcast of Xam’d, Bones decided to get Boom Boom Satelights to make a new opening (as if there was something wrong with Shut up and Explode). It’s not quite as good the original but it managed to sparked that love of Xam’d that I had all through the first half of the series.

Youtube commenters say it’s quite spoiler heavy, but spoiler comments are nearly always from people who’ve seen the anime and know what they are seeing. You could point to a bizzilon openings as spoilers but you would hardly know any better until you’ve actually seen the series.

    That is what the show should have been like.

    The animation on this one is way better but I loved the music on the original way more.

    The first OP is much better.

    Music-wise, I like this one better than the original. Visually, I like the first one better. But oh well.

    I do prefer the first opening but then again the first opening is my favorite opening of all time by an absolute mile. But it’s still pretty awesome

    Are they going to start selling Xam’d in the US anytime soon because from what I have seen from the opening from youtube this show looks pretty awesome.Anything Bones makes has my back 10 fold.

    Well, it was released on PS3 for download in America before it was available in Japan, so I’d say that lowers it’s chances. Or mabye the reverse because it was a huge success. No company have said they’re releasing it on DVD though.

    Not that I care. Bloody americans get all the anime…bar the japanese that is
