You all know that moment. When something dramatic starts happening, things start getting intense, and the OP starts to play. This is an anime technique that is used often and I absolutely love. Nothing like really pulling me into the moment than playing one of the most identifying songs of the anime!
I think these in general are all insert songs, but I specifically like them when its the OP that plays rather than just some random song!

Recently, Re: Zero did this really well in one scene. The OP never played at the beginning of the episode, and instead it played about 13:00 minutes in. Totally amazing! I felt SO involved in the show at that moment bc of the atmosphere.
