So many great anime openings. Don't have the time right now to make a top 10 list for each decade right now, but for the 1990"s I always loved the OP for the Record of the Lodoss War, http://youtu.be/blICu7KsmyA

Shame that I couldn't find a higher definition vid of it.

Technically its not anime but the Robotech OP was just amazing in the 80's.

Also loved the Younha Bleach OP (Houki Boshi), Second Death Note OP, and the OP from Detroit Metal City.

I wanna be the very best...

*ahem*

Without breaking into song, 'old-school anime opening of the 90s' absolutely SCREAMS Pokémon.

But can the last decade be 'old-school' yet? I guess in terms of popularity and ease of recognition I'd say something like Bōken Desho Desho? from The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, although the closing sequence to that is even more well-known.
