Dio busting into the credits was cool as hell but the Phantom Blood OP is still my favorite:

One of my favorites that has yet to be topped personally is the opening for the second season of space dandy, 'Viva Namida'. It was something I looked forward to hearing every saturday night but now that the show is over i still have it on a few of my playlists. Other than that though is Cowboy Bebop of course. Some more notable ones that i enjoyed were from Uchouten Kazoku, Magi (the very first one), and the first season of Free!

My top 3

1. Lucky Star op
2. Guilty Crown op 1
3. Rozen Maiden op 2

EDIT - I recommend watching the Rozen Miaden op 2 even if you think you wouldn't be interested. I personal think it's a great experience just in terms of the unique "feel" of it.

Now, how I came up with these is as follows - I scrounged my list of completed anime and looked for shows with openings that I remembered or that stood out to me. From those, I judged based on three criteria
1) Good music
2) Eye-catching visuals
3) Prepares the viewer for the show

The top three that I listed above are shows that I feel do a good job delivering in all of these areas. Lucky Star's op ekes out a slight victory over Guilty Crown even though I find them (roughly) equal in terms of how they fulfill these categories. The reason Lucky Star wins is because of its impact - including its stunning choreography, numerous parodies, and even real-life attempts to perform the dance.

For those curious, below is a list of all the openings that stood out to me when I went through my list, as well as brief statements on why I didn't pick them. I've essentially ranked them in order of how close they were to making it.
