xxxholic will always be my favorite. I have several other openings that I quite love, but being both my favorite anime, and just such a smooth song makes me enjoy it more than others.

I may post some of my other favorites here later.

There are so many epic openings. From the widely lauded Cowboy Bebop OP to Evangelion's OP, there are tons of spectacular ones. Some of my favorites are Mononoke, Elfen Lied, Samurai Champloo, Higashi no Eden, Maria Holic, Last Exile, Texhnolyze, and Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei(all openings)

My absolute all time favorite has to go to Paranoia Agent though.

Second place goes to Serial Experiments Lain:

I am going to have to say Hellsing is still one of my all-time favorite openings.

I totally agree with the Paranoia Agent and Xam'd openings. I think that opening alone kept me watching Xam'd, the anime didn't thrill me as much as it could have, but that opening was awesome.

Here's another of my favorites:

Ummm, are we talking about the music or the opening animation??? well wathever, if we're talknig about the music, I prefer fast paced music (makes my blood boil in ecstasy xD)

Mainly GRANRODEO with this: tRANCE

o.O The heck did I just watch. I... that... *breaks*


Though I suppose while we are at it, ending themes are good as well right? That last video(still don't know why all those characters I know are acting like that), made me think of this one:

^ Waaai I love Koihime chibis :o

And Carnival Phantasm is a spin off story, from the Gag manga TAKE-MOON, the series focuses on funny and absurd situations happening to the various characters of the TYPE-MOON franchises mostly from Fate/stay night and Tsukihime. Thay animated it for the 10th annyversary of TYPE-MOON :p

And...well...now endings huh?? then I shall choose this one now:

Basing only in randomness of the animation, not the music xD

Wow, the last thing I was expecting to see today was all of the Type-moon characters doing a dance together. Thank you.

You're welcome :o And yeah, I tried to dance like that, but it's been almost a month since I last exercised, and the dance hurted my torso xD

Changing topic...now an OP that charmed me because of the music: the OP is "Howling" from Abingdon Boys School of the anime Darker than Black
(and the only reason I explain it in detail, is because the video is a kick ass Fate AMV!!!) -SPOILER ALERT For anyone who haven't watched Fate/Stay Night or read the VN)

I say there's nothing wrong with Endings as opposed to openings, however some videos don't always have the endings, such as the american dubbed that is shown on TV. And as much as I hate dubs, some people really enjoy them, or have it as their only exposure to the media.

That said, here's my all time favorite ending theme:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RRBoDwYAz24
I just love this song. The childish voice, the random words that span the globe using elements of other languages, and the overall creepy yet calm feel to the song makes me enjoy it so.

This reminds me, I need to watch the new Aquarion anime soon.

I'm a little surprised nobody else has said Serial Experiments Lain considering the composition of this board. I've always considered that one of the prime loli anime. It turns me on more than any ecchi loli anime, at any rate.

I can't really decide on a single one :/
So I'll name my five favourites-.

1. Aria The Animation OP
Totally beautiful song, and probably one of my favourite songs ever.
ARIA The ANIMATION (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hOUbZ6Aqn0g)

2. Onegai Twins OP
Not really because of the opening itself, but because of the song. (I love it just way too much)
Onegai twins OP FULL - YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Mk6wZEre-A)
(Couldn't find a proper TV - Size one)

3. Serial Experiments Lain OP
The expressions Lain makes in the OP are incredibly awesome, and I just love that scene where the time stops, and she just puts her hands in her bag, and keeps going.
The music fits especially in there too at that part.
Serial Experiments Lain OP(HD) .mkv - YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t9CXmEUwvgM)

4. Mushishi OP
Just pure relaxing.
Mushishi OP (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AapZE-LHUdI)

5. Hayate no Gotoku first OP
That one is just totally nostalgic for me.
Hayate no Gotoku!Opening 1 - YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OA6XTJaemoE)
(Couldn't find TV - Size version again -__-)

For those who liked the Break Blade and Origin openings, they were both performed by KOKIA, who has done several other anime OPs (including Phantom: Requiem for the Phantom and Gunslinger Girl s2) and is generally a fantastic artist.

I had a good list of OPs and EDs, but there's a one-video limit. So probably the best OP I can think of:


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t6wKIKHSa_A

Honorable mentions: Tatta Hitotsu no Omoi (Gunslinger Girl S2 OP), Opening (Kara no Kyoukai movie 1), Magia (Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica ED), and Lacrimosa (Black Butler ED2).
