Anime fans are getting excited about each new 2021 Tokyo Olympic event but not for the reasons you think. Since the opening theme for ZOIDS was heard during the first day of competitions, users have been making it a game in trying to identify each of the anime themes being used at this year’s Olympic Games.

Tracks like Attack on Titan‘s “Guren no Yumiya” (Crimson Bow and Arrow) and Demon Slayer‘s “Gurenge” (Crimson Flower/Red Lotus) were used in the archery events, while the Slam Dunk and Haikyuu!! themes were aptly used for the women’s basketball and men’s volleyball matches, respectively. We will admit though, it was a bit weird hearing Ghost in the Shell 2‘s “Kugutsuuta ura mite chiru” for women’s Judo, even if it sort of made sense.
