What are some of your favourite anime openings?

A good opening can set the mood for the episode/arc your about to watch.

Musically, visually or both. What are some anime openings you just can't skip?
I can't bring myself to skip the openings of most Tales games (Tales has a rep of being the 'anime RPG') but if we're talking about actual anime...

I haven't watched a whole lot of anime, but each one I've watched has had a really good opening to it, especially the music. Some are really catchy, even if I have no idea what's being sung in the JPN language openings.

UBW honestly has some of the best animation I've seen. So good.

watched this as a kid but it's still really memorable for me

And Spirit mentioned it, but Steins;Gate's opening is really good as well.

I'm not really that big on the openings, and also i don't watch super-much anime. However, the original opening for Pokémon is iconic to me and I can't not love it. Also original Yu Gi Oh series is pretty nice! IT'S TIME TO D-D-D-D-D-D-D-D-D-D-DUEL!

I love the opening theme for Erased!

I also agree with others who said Steins;Gate and Sailor Moon.

Is This a Zombie? is pretty great as well.
