So yeah, like, it's time to play the classic game where we list our five favourite opening songs from anime. No endings. Link to youtube if you want. PVs are cool.

Like so:

Maximum the Hormone - What's Up People? (Death note second OP)
Detroit Metal City - Satsugai (Detroit Metal City)
9mm Parabellum Bullet - Wanderland (RD Sennou Chousashitsu)
Nujabes feat. SHINGO2 - Battlecry (Samurai Champloo)
Dimitri in Paris - Neko Mimi Mode (Tsukuyomi ~ Moon Phase)

I know there are so many others with awesome ops (e.g. Sexy Commando, The Legend of Black Heaven, Beck, Initial D Fourth Stage) but yah... cats are cool.

Excuse any outbreaks of potential fanboyism...

EDIT: Jesus! Only 5?!??!?!


First up:

Lucky Star OP
I actually only ever watched Lucky Star because I saw this OP play at a Lan on a big screen.

Bakemonogatari 4th OP
Because HELLS YEA SENGOKU!

Chobits OP
I love this song, call me a f*g...I dont care.

Elfen Lied OP
If you watch this and any other word beside "awesome" doesn't form in your mind, then I hate you :lol:

Alright, I'll cut myself short here...else I'll be here for hours...but there is one to top them all.
While I didn't like the anime so much...the OP is just amazing...I give you...dun dun dunn:
Sky Girls OP! - Virgins High by Mell...it gets good about half way through


Runners up:

More Bakemonogatari
<-- 2nd OP sung by Katou Emiri (aka. Hiiragi Kagami)
<-- 3rd OP sung by Kanbaru's VA

GTO OP
:lol:

Dokuro Chan OP
Is mah ringtone

mmmm want to say K-ON op...but I'll be flamed for it...
But I LOVE me some Cayake Girls

The best anime opening in the history of forever (probably), has to be Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex - Inner Universe (Yoko Kanno with Origa on vocals).

Other awesome openings are:
Gundam 00 - Ash Like Snow (The Brilliant Green)
Blood+ - Aozora no Namida (Hitomi Takahashi)
Darker Than Black - Howling (Abingdon Boys School)
Witch Hunter Robin - Shell (Bana)

I'm not even going to bother listing, there's just too many. I love basically every OP i see doesn't matter what anime or music etc.

Most of favourites probably come from Bleach, FMA and Brotherhood, Initial D, All the Dragonball series. Busou Renkin had a pretty good OP too if I remember correctly.

You didn't state that, if anything the title of the thread implies you pick only 1. But it seems like most of us here are the same, WE CAN'T PICK THE BEST 5 :D
