From beginning to end
Just post what you think are the best opening and endings of all the animes you have ever watched.
It doesn't have to be a personal favorite anime of yours, just one with a catchy song or great animation that you always enjoyed watching.
It's would also be nice if you could post the link for it on youtube so the rest of the forum can also enjoy them.
Best opening: Death Note - The World
From the music, to the animation, to the symbolism this has to be the best opening i have ever seen. Watched it every single time i saw an episode, and that's saying something.
Best ending: Code Geass - Waga Routashi Aku no Hana
Ok this favoritism of mine is probably influenced by the fact that i just finished the series and am currently inloved with it. May have to update this later when i'm not influenced by the geass but it's still on my top 5 not just because of the music but also because of the great art work that comes with it.
Best opening: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6YR4pehBKko&feature=fvst
I haven't seen Paradise Kiss, but the song grabbed my attention when I was playing StepMania. Awesome song, imo. :O
Best ending: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A1c0mNvmxgE
You can't deny TTGL, ever. This song is plain awesome. Period.
Best opening: Eden of the East: Falling down
The only opening that I not only watch every episode, but re-watch every episode. Plus it has Oasis. In anime. 'Nuff said.
Other strong contenders would be good ol' Tank, Hit in America (crappy audio but it's the only one I can find) or the Baccano! opening Guns & Roses, which has apparently disappeared from the face of YouTube :hmm: Then there's, of course, Lucky Star...
Yes, I'm aware that I'm posting too many alternatives.
As for best ending... Can't really decide, but Eden of the East comes pretty damn close there too.
Updating already since I remembered another awesome opener... This one's less flashy than my other favourites, but all the more thrilling. Simplicity wins.
I don't have any favorite openings in particular, (although "The World" is truly one of the best.) but my favorite ending is "Make it Home from Monster. It truly fits into the atmosphere, and the animation really suits the song.
For my favorite OP I gotta go with this.
Sengoku Basara is a show with so much energy and the OP is evident of that.
For my favorite ED I'm torn between two.
K-On! is full of great music. Don't Say "Lazy" makes that statement completely true. While not my favorite song from K-On! it still ties for my favorite ED.
As for the second one, well this song is so great that it should be a no-brainer that I included it.
TTGL is the greatest anime ever. It stands that it should have epic music to back it up. Love and peace, rock my song!
I actually have that on my mp3 :D

I love the Tsukihime OP, Sacred Moon
It's sets the mood just right for such a sad story and I love the little flash of Nanaya Shiki(or is Roa? either way, he really is an evil bastard).
Best ED I can think of atm would be the ED from Wolf's Rain.
Sakamoto Maaya - Gravity
Not really fussed about the animation, but Sakamoto Maaya has a lovely voice.
Haha so true

Got to agree. My favorite OP was Sakamoto-san's Yakusoku wa Iranai from Tenkuu no Escaflowne. Could just be nostalgia of my younger days, though.
