    A few of my faves, mostly based on animation or animation/song combo:

    Samurai Champloo OP
    Elfen Lied OP
    1st Darker Than Black OP
    Hellsing OP
    All Death Note OP/ED
    Devil May Cry had a pretty sweet OP too, even if the show wasn't that great
    oh and of course the Haruhi ED just for the dance

    Naruto 3rd OP

    i know people hate that song but it's fucking epic. The animation also fucking rocks. :o I love that slash that Sakura does at around 50 seconds, and I love the Sandaime + little kid at the monument scene. So many different feelings and emotions when two people from vastly different generations come together to share in their pain. And I love the pan of the Hokage mountains and you see the Sannin looking up at them. It makes Konoha feel larger than life, and I like how the younger generation is respecting the history and people before them. Then it goes to an adult Jiraiya and he himself has become one of the greatest ninjas of all time.

    ok that was pretty gay but this thread made me watch it again so I felt like writing about it :o

    I thought Elfen Lied's ending didn't really fit the show, it always kinda bugged me. :dunno: It's like, you just got done witnessing a puppy murder and a grisly massacre of children and gratuitous nudity, then it kicks in with some generic Jpop song that's called "Are you gonna be my girl" :ugh2: Should've been another sweet song in latin or something.

    Bleach's 2nd OP was pretty sweet, even though they showed a bunch of scenes that never happened for god knows what reason.

    I still gotta check out Eureka 7 and Serial Experiments Lain

    OP and ED from Mobile Suit Gundam.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oab0sP-v0D4

    Burn
    Burn
    Burn Gundam!
    You! Run!
    You're still burning will rage
    If the fighting spirit is in your nature
    The powerful enemy
    Attacks, attacks, attacks
    The rage of justice
    Meets the Gundam

    Stand up
    Stand up
    Stand up Gundam!
    You! Shout!
    You're still sinking into despair
    If you're certainly sad
    Dispell the fear
    Go on, go on, go on
    The swirling tide of blood
    Fire up Gundam

    Revive
    Revive
    Revive Gundam!
    You! Catch!
    If your love still trembles
    In your heart and nature
    That yearns for peace
    Fly, fly, fly
    Towards the Miky Way
    Fly Gundam!
    Mobile Suit Gundam! Gundam!
    Mobile Suit Gundam! Gundam!
    Mobile Suit [2] Gundam! Gundam!

    I thought Seto no Hanyome's ED was hilarious.

    Both GITS: SAC openings were sick.
