Watched Lain for the first time a couple of weeks ago, the intro is absolutely beautiful. I never even once considered skipping the intro while watching the later episodes, which isn't the case with other TV shows I've watched.
Lyrically it doesn't really fit the show too well, but who cares?

>>55241897
Its good, but both are an Ideon ripoff, personally I like RahXephon more than NGE
>>
>>55241897

It is an Eva ripoff. But that doesn't matter. Unfortunately its characters are boring and its pacing is all over the place, and it kind of gradually disappears up its own asshole as it goes on. But it does have a very interesting aesthetic, and the early episodes are great.

I wouldn't recommend it, but you could do worse.

>>55241671
Bacano! is probably my favourite anime but when it comes to intros durarara!! is unparalleled imo.
https://youtu.be/0mMocpvUDmM
That's full episode 2 cuz I like how they edited in what happened in the previous ep in their intro and can't find that seperately.
>>
>>55241746
Damn, the brilliant outros of jojo made me forget how good the intros were aswell.
>>
>>55243353

The anime is only faithful to the source material for like 5 episodes. Those 5 episodes were shit. The rest was fucking great.
>>
>>55243500
hmm might have to pick it up again then, I didn't like the first ep after trying it because it's from the makers of trigun which was a great anime imo.
>>
Really, no one?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jF6k0eI0rSU
Only reason to watch the show, if you ask me.
>>
>>55243590

The first episode is nothing like most of the anime. Episodes 2-16 are entirely backstory, which is the best part of the whole thing. The anime also completely changed the ending into something magnificent, so there's that too.

The only problems are the first episode, and the stuff inbetween the backstory and the anime-original ending.

BoA is actually a pretty solid band in general. The Race of a Thousand Camels and Get There were both really good albums if you ask me. Sometimes the singer vocalizes in an odd way though and I can't always vibe with it.

As much as this animu was edgy, I cherish it
>>
>>55245619
Yeah Race of a Thousand Camels is definitely a solid album. a few duds but definitely a good album, I particularly liked Drinking and Rain.
>>
The best anime intro is hands-down, zero doubt, this. Anyone who tries to argue has shit taste and are in denial.

I liked the opening theme song to Mushishi, even thought it wasn't composed for the show. It's such a relaxing song for a relaxing show. It matched the mood of the show perfectly.
>>
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n86hgIXc1BM

Perfectly fits the show

Samurai Champloo is obviously amazing

This.

Also, another OP by the same musician, and also for an anime adaptation of a Naoki Urasawa manga:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D9CHV9GxDMQ
>>
>>55246541
Agreed, this is the best Monogatari opening.
>>
>>55243420
Still one of the best anime openings I've seen. Too bad the actual show didn't live up to it.
>>
>>55243420
this is so beautiful
>>
>>55243420
Fuck, I can't believe I forgot how good this song is. Too bad the opening is the best thing about the show.
>>
>>55246233
The opening song for S2 is equally as comfy https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1o84y-5-cO0
>>
>>55247375
I can't get past the ugly voice.
>>
>>55247375

I actually like the S2 opening more. Hell, I liked S2 more in general. Specifically S2P2.
>>
>>55247402
I still haven't gotten around to finding a source for the dubbed version of S2.

That's because it doesn't exist. It's stuck in licensing hell at the moment, as FUNimation did the original series almost a decade ago, but Aniplex have since bought the rights to it.

/a/non here.

Aside from OP, I can think of these openings:
>Eden of the East
>GitS: SAC (2>1)
>Sayounara Zetsubou Sensei (Bure>Rumba>Ringo)
>Baccano
>Noragami
>DRRRx2

Some people have posted Nozaki-kun, and while I love it, I don't think it's at the level as most other stuff.

Queen's Blade Rebellion OP and ED are great.

Also special mention to Koi Uta.
