This is hard. They're all pretty good.

I also like them all, but Totori was the best all around imo.

Hmm well I like Rorona's because it was my first Atelier game and when I saw that intro I knew I had to try it. Totori's is great as well it's simple but the song really sets the mood for the game, I think. It's somber but has an uplifting melody near the end that makes it great. Meruru's is just loud, colorful, cheerful and totally awesome! I always listen to that loud as possible. I just love the explosiveness to it and it's a great send off to the Alrand series . This is the first time I saw Ayesha's opening and I have to say it was very different then what I was expecting but in a good way. The imagery is very nice and the song is very relaxed compared to most of this series. all Iris/Mana series openings make me feel like I'm about to watch some anime not complaining though


Yea this is really hard to decide but I'm going to go a little fan boy here and say Totori not because I just love that game a lot. While the animation is simple, I really think the song it sets the mood nicely to the overall game.

If we're going for music + visuals, Ayesha, no question. It's fantastically composed and gets you right in the mood for the somewhat trippy experience that is the game's world.

By pure music, though, I might actually have to say Iris 3. That one's almost disappointing because the game so did not live up to the bombing-ass opening song. Image

So far, I'll stay with Iris 1 for the music. For the visuals, I'm afraid I'll have to leave that decision for later on.

Tricky...the visuals for Ayesha are fantastic, but Totori wins my vote. The presentation, music and feel is just spot on for me! :)

After a moment of thinking I have admit that Ayesha is also my type. Music overweight.

All of them are great. But I would say probably, Iris 1, Mana Khemia 1, Totori, and Ayesha are the top 4 to me. Ayesha probably does the best combination of both visuals and sound, it sets the mood of the setting amazingly well. Totori also is great, the visual aspects for me I think are even better than Ayesha's, just that little bit at the end where it has just a shot of the atelier's sign swaying in the sunset under a gentle sea breeze, amazing.

Mana Khemia also has great music and it goes very well with the visuals, although maybe not as well as Totori or Ayesha.

Iris 1 has amazing music and it really gives you that sort of classic Gust music that you hear throughout the rest of the series, and in Ar Tonelico's hymnos. Also since it was my first Gust game, I still remember the first time I started up the game in my PS2, not really expecting anything special, then as soon as that music started, I was blown away, talk about a good first impression.

Tough choice, but I chose Atelier Rorona's. I love Rorona's OP not only because the protagonist is one of my favourite characters of all time but also because of the song and how it almost resembles a lullaby, especially noticeable in the full version. That's what made me instantly like it and the game in a whole.
