Darkwing Duck was awesome.
I never really liked the openings of the Disney Afternoon shows. They were just a montage of shots from the first season. I like shows that have a unique clip or animation used just for the opening. Or at least a new set of clips each season.

Azumanga Daioh did use existing footage in their opening but they didn't just make a montage with it, they editted it around their opening graphics.

LUCKY~
lol, i actually had a dream where i did that... =3= dreamtheif....
anyways, besides that, i have a particular love of...
the second opening to death note. Neon, violent, sexy, i pretty much died of awesomeness the first time i saw it,
Elfen Lied's OP. Forget the name (Lithia...?sumthinglikethat) of the song, but the calm, brutal-ish imagery perfectly matches the series,
and despite a few others racking up plays on my ipod frequently, i cant help but love Ready Steady Go, from FMA.
owo anyone else agree?

Remember when American TV shows had actual theme songs?  And not just a 5 second mini-teaser type thing at the beginning? mehhh.

I love Gunslinger Girl's.... Delgados for the win.

It is the First OP from season one.  Of course you could just click the link and listen to find out.   ;D

Yeah, these two are probably my favorite two for driving along on long trips.  Get my blood pumping and my fingers tapping the steering wheel.

I'd thought I'd already replied to this thread, guess I didn't. Or was I erased???

Gantz, Cowboy Bebop, G.I.T.S. the Laughing Man series, Last Exile, Azumanga Daioh, Gad Guard, Vandread, Beck, Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, ...

I think only University of Maryland alumni would be fans of the original TMNT theme nowadays. Since a turtle is their mascot, and they play it every time the game stops in basketball at least. I have a story there.
Have Fun

I am especially fond of the first Death Note opening. I immediately loved the sound, and the animation is so symbolic. Now, when I listen to that song through earbuds, I turn the sound up(-ish) and pay attention to the bass, because for some reason, I always notice that.  ::)
I also love all the Kuroshitsuji openings, both songs, and every animation. I think they fit the mood of the anime. Is it sad that I can sing along with half of them as well?  ;)
The closing of Ouran is so inspirational too. The opening was nice, but the closing really spoke to me.  :D

For me, it'd have to be one of the three Slayers openings; it'd be hard to pick one out of the bunch.
