Gintama has some of the best OP's and ED's I've come across. Over 300 episodes and I can't remember the last time I skipped an intro or ending.
OP 5 "Donten" by Does
(I literally have this on my iPod)
OP 9 "Tougenkyou Alien" by Serial TV Drama
If you want to know what the the series is about this sums it up perfectly (especially when taking into account this is the into the heroes manage to fuck up). The song is badass and gets you pumped too.
ED 2 "Mr. Raindrop" by Amplified
The song is a happy little early 2000 sounding pop rock ditty. The animation is Elizabeth skipping in the rain (note: Elizabeth is an alien (man?) in a giant duck costume). It brings joy to the heart.
My favorite non-Gintama
Soul Eater OP 1 "Resonance"
Beautiful animation, as always. Pumped up song with a Halloween-esque spice that fits the series so damn well.
Himeragi Best Girl
Favorite OP . Too lazy to put most of the actual song names, but you tube is pretty good with just putting OP after the anime name.
Akame Ga Kill OP 2
Spice and Wolf OP 1
Fate Zero OP 1 Oath sign. LiSA and OP 2 to the Beginning. Kalafina
Cross Ange OP 1 Kindan no Resistance. Nana Mizuki, that's my jam Yo! Gets me pumped up every time.
Fate stay night OP 2 brave shine. AIMER
SAMURAI girls OP. SAMURAI BRIDE OP Ai Do Hashimoto Mizuki
Trinity seven OP seven doors. ZAQ
My teen romantic comedy Snafu season 2 OP
GOD EATER OP. FEED X

Pretty much every single god dam OP from DRRR! Absolutely brilliant.

How to raise a boring girlfriend ED. Colorful Miku Sawai
I can't think of anymore ED if I went through some more again I would have more, but these are the ones that stick. Idk OP are more of my thing, a lot more Up beat and mesmerizing, just like the NANANAS buried treasure ED, cause that's my favorite.
Order from the Ruthless. Loyal to the ones close.
My favorite Opening would be Evangelion (catchy jingle)

7.Last Theatre (Death Parade)
8.Liar Mask (Akame ga Kill!)
9.Seasons (Nanatsu no Taizai)
10.Kimi no Shiranai Monogatari (Bakemonogatari)
I feel like shit
Totally agree on this, it so perfectly encapsulates the feel & mood of the show. I havent come across another OP that is such a precise fit for it's series, and the Durarara OP's after 'Uragiri no Yuuyake' get progressively less evocative & appropriate, which is disappointing after such a great start.
I also fell in love with "Hey! Kids' by The Oral Cigarettes - OP for Noragami Aragoto & often find myself singing that!
A couple of ED's that I think rate a mention are: 'Daisy' by Stereo Dive Foundation - the ED for 'Beyond the Boundary'........Akihiko even struts to the beat of the song in this one!! And secondly: 'Yoru' by vistlip, a beautiful ballad for the first season ED of 'Akatsuki no Yona', of the type that gives you chills when you least expect it!!
There are a few others that I know I have rated well in the past, such as a couple of the Bakemonogatari franchise's character OP songs, which I cant recall atm; but these really stand out!! Of course, some favourites change often, some rarely, and I expect there will be plenty more in the future to take their place!!
Leave me alone, I'm watching anime!!
