Fan Creates VALORANT Anime Opening Featuring All Agents and Unique Animations

A Reddit user present what VALORANTS the opening of the anime would look like the animation of various agents with their own cutscenes.

VALORANTS took inspiration from anime in the past with its skin line VALORANTS GO!, which took several Operators and turned them into a more animated style for their own weapon skins. There were even chibi gun buddies made of agents, furthering the inspiration from Japanese culture.

Now, Reddit user emikoyaki has taken that inspiration to another level by creating an anime opening featuring several of the agents. An anime opening is a sequence featuring scenes that will occur later in the series or featuring the characters it contains. They are usually accompanied by music, often with someone signing in Japanese. Both items were in the VALORANTS opening, with emikoyaki using a Japanese song as the characters’ backdrop.

The opening begins by briefly showing Jett, Reyna, and Sage in various locations, with Sage somewhere near Ascent judging by the background. The sequence then switches to an island with the VALORANTS logo, along with the words “The Animation” displayed below. Fans can then see Sova, Killjoy and Viper on more popular VALORANTS Maps. The remaining agents each have their own brief cutscene in the opening, showing them either in combat or in a friendlier light. After all the agents have been in the spotlight, the animation switches to a player wearing a Sentinels jersey before the final scene shows Jett biting his glove.

In addition to elements common to anime openings, the fan-made sequence also uses a characteristic art style in the animation. It goes well with the music and the mood, which makes some fans want an official VALORANTS animated.
