Which are your favorite OP and ED songs from anime? Also, do you prefer the full versions or the shorter versions used in the openings and endings? I personally prefer full versions.

My favorites:

Kimi ni Todoke Opening, Kimi ni Todoke:

Shin Sekai Ending, Wareta Ringo

Another Ending, Anamnesis

Kanon Opening, Last Regrets

Sailor Moon Opening, Moonlight Densetsu

Lucky Star Opening, Motteke! Sailor Fuku!

Cardcaptor Sakura Opening, Catch You Catch Me

My Neighbor Totoro Opening, Sampo

Castle in the Sky, Carrying You
Can't find decent video that isn't a cover

Spirited Away Ending, Always With Me (Itsumo Nando Demo)

Spirited Away Opening, One Summer's Day

Princess Mononoke Ending, The Legend of Ashitaka

Princess Mononoke Theme

I personally prefer full versions because TV length OP/ED songs don't seem to quite make the cut on my iPod, and the full versions are more like full on songs, if that makes any sense. Anyway, I'll get to my list. I'm digging pretty deep here for a pretty thorough display of my favorites so don't say I didn't warn you. Also I feel that the visuals are a pretty important part of some of these openers.

These are OPs and EDs that, above the hundreds of anime series I've watched, are the few that have been deemed worthy to take up space on my iPhone. So yeah, that's me. There are actually quite a bit more OPs and EDs out there that I like that they might be unique in that they aren't exactly fitting for being on my iTunes. For example I, too, love the Lucky Star theme but the cheering bits kinda keep it from being on my playlist haha. I also like the Shin Sekai ED.

Also there are several times as many anime songs that I love that are not OPs or EDs. I might start a thread on those sooner or later.
