Opening of the Week: Believe in my Existence by JAM Project(Cardfight Vanguard OP 2)
I was reminded recently by a video about Card Game anime that Cardfight Vanguard has one of the best openings by JAM Project ever. Not only is the music in the opening awesome, but the visuals, as with any good opening, are great at conveying what that arc of the show is about. JAM Project is definitely one of the better Japanese band out their, and man do they not disappoint. For this week’s Opening of the Week: Believe in my Existence by JAM Project.
JAM Project is no stranger to making music for anime. In fact, the group was formed mostly for that purpose, with JAM standing for Japanese Animation Music. Since its inception in the early 2000’s, the group has done a lot of music for both Japanese anime and games. It has done two openings for Cardfight Vanguard, including its second season’s first opening.
Believe in my Existence is J-Rock going some of its hardest, with each of the groups five members contributing to the rocking atmosphere of the song. The visuals of the opening also help create a great feel as well.
In the beginning of the opening, it shows Aichi standing alone, looking confused and hoping someone will come help. The camera turns around to his backside to find Blaster Blade, his signature card, standing behind him, and Blaster Dark behind him. The scene serves to create the fear and confusion that Aichi feels after confronting Ren and realizing that he needs to improve.
Overall, one of my personal favorite openings.
