Top 10 Gintama Openings, Ranked

Gintama is known for captivating audiences with its blend of comedy, action, and drama.

The anime is popular for its unique characters, engaging plotlines, and, of course, its memorable opening songs.

10. "Tooi Nioi" by YO-KING

This opening song was used in the second season of Gintama.

What could be more nostalgic than going back to this gem?

The song's emotional lyrics about never forgetting the past and moving forward are recurring themes throughout the series.

9. "Donten" by DOES

Cloudy weather, all the Gintama characters looking solemn and staring into the sky – Donten’s formidable vocals scream epic.

The song's themes of fighting for what you believe in and never giving up perfectly reflect the series' messages of perseverance and determination.

8."Giniro no Sora" by redballoon

And the summer soundtrack of the year goes to…

Giniro no Sora was the opening theme for the third season of Gintama.

The song's themes of friendship, hope, and endurance wonderfully manifest the series' overarching message of finding strength in adversity.

7. "Wonderland" by FLiP

This opening song came during the sixth season of Gintama and we love it.

It’s got one of my favorite beat drops in anime and the transition where the trio jump into the sky is absolutely smooth.

6. "Pray" by Tommy Heavenly6

But could anything be more iconic than this opening song that kickstarted the first season of Gintama?

The song's upbeat tempo and catchy melody perfectly capture the spirit of Gintama, its humorous and quirky nature, especially its main character, Gintoki Sakata.

5. "Stairway Generation" by Base Ball Bear

My personal favorite and a ridiculously unforgettable song, Stairway Generation embodies everything that Gintama is.

This opening song was used in the fourth season of Gintama and is my personal favorite.

The song's beautiful melody manages to show how loveable each character is.

4. "Know Know Know" by DOES

This opening song was used in the seventh season of Gintama and is a standout among the series' many openings because of its four different versions.

The song's powerful vocals and guitar riffs perfectly capture the epic battles and dramatic moments in the Shogun Assassination arc, making it a fan favorite.

3. "DAYxDAY" by Blue Encount

This opening song comes in the eighth season of Gintama.

With a very infectious and catchy hook, DayxDay keeps up with the show's relentless comedy and gives a throw back to the early Gintama days.

2. "Tougenkyou Alien" by serial TV drama

Tougenkyou Alien scooters through the fifth season of Gintama and it’s the ultimate hype song!

Its energy is so high that the visuals could only keep up by showing the entire town population chasing the Yorozuya into a dead-end with missiles blasting behind them!

1. "Sakura Mitsutsuki" by SPYAIR

Nothing can take the place of Sakura Mitsutsuki. It's also the only song that drops its chorus twice.

The beat begins to mellow down a bit before suddenly slamming down again.

The theme of never giving up and always moving forward, doggedness and protecting what's close to you shines wonderfully in the choreography of the characters awaiting in moonlit sakura for the dawn to break again.
