I'm just gonna combine the 2 Starry Heavens into 1 vote since they're basically the same song. I will link both though.

Typically, I enjoy the anime themes (like Vesperia's Ring a Bell... in English), but I'm gonna go with instrumental for this game.
I thought it matched the intro better, and I loved how epic it made the game feel.

English GC intro is way, way better. Not even a contest.

I don't think nostalgia is the right word here, but rather the English Gamecube version is what I am USED to.
The Japanese version just, in my mind, doesn't fit the visuals, because it is a different type of song than what I saw a billion times playing the gamecube version.
Might be different if I saw the Japanese version first, but that isn't how it went down, and so the English version is what seems 'right' to me.

Starry Heavens is the only one of the three songs I actually like, so there's no real loser coming from me, but have to hand it to the international instrumental.

For me its kinda the reverse, I saw the english version a few times when I was a kid, but I've seen Starry Heaven far, far more, so the english OP feels.... off.

but overall, from Chronicles, Three-Legged Race is my favorite.

I'm going to break the tide of the comments here and say that I enjoy the Japanese Opening a lot more, and that beat for beat the visuals matched the song more than the instrumental.
But it was horrible. For everyone. And that includes you.

I miss my instrumental version. It just fit the opening so much better in my opinion.
