Tenjou Tenge's OP is still my favorite. Not even Eva can top it.

If I'm remembering correctly, this version hasn't been pitch-shifted, so enjoy

Two of my favorite openings are;
Serial Experiments Lain

and
Baccano!

I enjoy them more then NGE's Opening, not by much though. They just fit their respective show so well!

......Carnival Phantasm's opening is a guilty pleasure of mine sometimes beating out NGE.

I feel like I'm turning into LCL just by listening to this....it's actually quite a pleasant feeling, don't see what all the fuss was about during EOE.

I don't know if I'd say it's the best, but you could argue it's probably one of the most well-known OP's of all time.

Don't get me wrong, I'll listen to it every time I hear it.

I kind of have a thing for Birdy's second OP though:

We 're talking about OP right? Why is this opening so good for you? Is it because of music or are those parts of animation? Is it both?
Well, my opinion is that the opening from NGE is great. It certainly has something that attracts you. Is it the melody or lyrics I don't know.
I liked NGE series though I'm not a fan of this genre and of course I hate a new remake.

As for myself I'm not really sure. I really love supercells OP and ED e.g. Guilty Crown. I liked Baccano OP, Psycho-Pass, Cowboy Bebob, Fate Zero OPs/EDs, FMA OPs, GTO, Hanasaku Iroha, Magi, Samurai Champloo, AoT, Suisei no Gargantia, SAO . . .
I like some of them because they are unusual or funny some others are just epic and cool so as we have different genres in movies and music we also have different types of OP/ED. In those that I've mentioned I find something that attracts me. Though I still haven't seen OP for which I could say that is the best and most epic opening . . .

And here's English dub:

Saying something is "The Best" is a personal opinion. So, no- there is no actual best opening, so this can't be it.

Coming from the standpoint of a video editor, it's nothing special. The scenes are brief and change abruptly and not on the beat of the song, the scenes look like they came straight out of the anime (appears to have had no extra work put into it), and there are no camera movements or impact so it feels more like a slideshow than an opening.

The song is okay to me personally, but I can see how people would like it.

As an example, it's not by any means the best opening ever, but the recent Attack on Titan opening has a good balance of all of these things.

Overall, I think the reason people would like this opening a lot is because they like the show, and think that the opening has meaning. To me, it doesn't seem all that special. I wouldn't say it's the best, nor in the top 10, and I would even hesitate to say it's good. After I get to watching it, I can decide for certain; but I'd probably say it's average at the moment.

My favorite OP is probably Ano Hana's. . . But I'm weird like that.

While I love many, many anime openings, the Inner Universe opening to Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex is always my absolute favorite. It is so beautiful and haunting.
