So no mention of the Angels of Death OP from the great Masaaki Endoh. Maybe it will get its due in a future podcast. Also the second ED of Gegege Kitaro is pretty good as well.

Attack on Titan Season 3 ED does have an epic feel from Linked Horizon but much more subdued. I still feel the new OP doesn't fit right.

I would like to think that Guess Who's Back is more of a reference to Koda Kumi not being around for a decade. I was amazed that she was back and with such a catchy song.

I really suggest to check out the Tiger Mask W ED from Shounan no Kaze. It really fits well with the show like how they fit the OP with Grand Blue.

I didn't realize Kavka ShiShido sang the We Rent Tsukumogami OP. When you guys mention Fairy Tail, I looked at the list of songs and liked the song she did for it but doesn't sound like her.

As for the ED for We Rent Tsukumogami, I was thinking that it was Mai Kuraki when I first listened to it. It's a shame that a good majority of her songs isn't legally available for Detective Conan but she still does them to this day. Her most recent one is similar to the ED but her range is rather wide which includes songs like the OP. I also want to mention that she holds the Guinness World Record for most theme songs for a single anime series with 19 (21 if you count the movies). You can also hear her in the upcoming Valkyria Chronicles IV.

I think the only long running anime that had great songs for every single one of their OPs and EDs is Bleach. I can go back and listen to every single one and each one was just so fun to listen to and each one had their own unique flavor from JPop, JRock, and even some metal. I became a long life fan of SCANDAL because of that show.

Other shows like Gintama has had a few flubs here and then and to this day I cannot forget that really stupid Naruto OP that had all the characters dancing in such a dumb way.

My favorite OP from this season is for sure Voracity by Myth & Roid. They have been on a decline for me for a while now, but this song is them back to their very best. Tom-H@ck proving once again that he's a great composer.

My favorite ED is Inyaka Impulse from Asobi Asobase. It is such a fantastic contrast to the OP for that show, and fits the nature of the show so well, and you know, I like metal.

The AoT OP is growing on me and I agree that it fits well with the current tone of this arc, its ED sounds more like a typical AoT OP which I thought was kind of funny. I dig Asobi Asobase's ED, its cool to know that the VA's have a hand in it. Banna Fish's OP reminds me of Red Jumpsuit Appartus and is probably my pick of the season.

I know this is SUPER late and all but one song you missed and one I don't blame you for, is the ED to High Score Girl. Houkago Destruction by Etsuko Yakushimaru. It's very cute and nostalgic for some reason.
