WATCH: Every Anime Intro Ever IS EXACTLY THE SAME!

Shout out Matt Muir for this crack! The homogeneous nature of much anime has never been in question, but this video does a good job of illustrating the point (and making me wanna watch loads of anime). I'll let the guy who put it together explain:

No it's not every anime opening ever, it's just a title.

It's always amused me the repeated imagery that exist in anime opening credit sequences. This video doesn't cover them all, but it has a lot of the big ones. Interesting thing I learned, if a character is running it's overwhelmingly to the left of the screen.

I first started thinking about this years ago when I saw the X-Men intro that they made in Japan to replace the American one. The part that especially hit home was Wolverine, and Cyclops standing on some nondescript land mass.

For this I used only textless credits I found on Youtube (with the exception of Evangelion). So if your favorite anime isn't in here either there was no textless version, the clip quality was bad, or it had a pretty unique opening sequence.

Here's the complete list of what anime made it into this.
