If I could pick a top three, they'd run like this.

1) Shura No Toki - Age of Chaos: Mostly because of the great song that I became obsessed with and the energy of the OP.

2) K.O. Beast: I didn't even like the Anime all that much, but the OP song rocks and so does the hilarious montage.

3) Dragon Ball Z MOVIE OP: I used to love that series as a little kid, and still do now. So watching it, especially with the guitar instrumental OP that was used for the movies, almost brings a tear to my eyes :laugh:

First anime to show me what utter masterpieces they could be.

The opening to GGG is not an opening... it is a celebration!

And for the record, this is one of the all time greatest anime openings... to one of the absolute worse anime I've ever had the misfortune of sitting through.

I still haven't seen the Lodoss TV series yet, but the OAVs were amazing. Was it really that bad?

What pisses me off is when an anime has a great OP, then changes it every season. It's such a fucking marketing ploy! I liked it the way it was back in the day when shows would stick with one.

Not all anime do that as a marketing ploy though. Some do it for when the main setting, mood or addition of new characters/objects appear and/or change.

That's one of the reasons why they do it. But, yeah, mostly for profit but not always the case.

Very nice choice with 5D's Freedom OP.

I could never get into anything Yu-Gi-Oh! past GX cause 4-KIDS just killed that series with it's shitty dubbing. And finding nice quality subs for GX and 5D's is very time and EX HD consuming.

I started watching episodes of GX subbed on youtube, and once i started watching the sub, the dub was never quite the same.

But that's another topic for another thread.
