Derek Lieu has strung together a fantastic compilation video exposing the not-so-hidden truth about the unoriginality of anime series openings and how they’re virtually cut-and-pastes of one another. It’s been a subject of debate among the die-hard anime nerds and the haters, but we now have quintessential evidence revealing how every anime (or at least anime openings) are virtually similar.

The montage is a little over four minutes long and is made up of 93 different anime series that include popular series like Bleach, Dragon Ball Z, Fullmetal Alchemist, Sailor Moon, Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya and Cowboy Bepop, to the obscure series like Strawberry Panic, To Aru Majutsu no Index and H2O Footprints in the Sand.
