What are your favourite anime openings? Most of the time they get flicked over, especially if you marathon eps like I do. But what are the ones you watch pretty much every time they show up?

My fav from this year has to be Death Parade's. It's just so fun.

Last one that I really liked was Noragami Aragoto. First season of Durarara!! was also good and Fairy Tails op 15. One of my favourite opening songs is Hiiro no Kakera Nee. There are probably some really good ones that I'm forgetting :P
Although I usually skip openings because they tend contain spoilers. I like to watch them when the series is finished.

Well I usually will not watch the opening or closing credits for the first few episodes (too many series spoilers, if I hadn't read them yet). But ...
Shingeki no Kyojin (despite the hype, it is catchy)
Fushigi Yûgi
& Paradise Kiss

There are many favourites for me.

Macross Frontier, Fairy Tail, Shingeki no Kyoujin... I can't pick one.

But my favourite ending is still Diamond Crevasse in Macross Frontier.

Both of Attack on Titan's openings are good, though I have to give preference to Guren no Yumiya since it was that first opening sequence that made me start watching the series. I liked Inuyasha's fourth opening, Grip!, and pretty much all of the FullMetal Alchemist OPs-- excepting the last Brotherhood one-- though I like Period and Golden Time Lover in particular. Saiunkoku Monogatari's opening, Hajimari no Kaze, Rinbu Revolution from Revolutionary Girl Utena, Moonlight Densetsu and Makenai! from Sailor Moon, and Lena Park's cover of You Raise Me Up in Romeo x Juliet are all also personal favorites. I feel like I have more favorite endings, though...

I judge openings (and closings) more by their music than by the animation. My most recent favorite was Aldnoah.Zero season 1's Kalafina opening, Heavenly Blue. Great song by a great group of vocalists. Also, the opening song from Shinsekai Yori--it's not even a song, but it really set up the mood and eerie atmosphere for each episode. And, of course, Inner Universe for Ghost in the Shell. RIP Origa.

Unravel by Ling Tosite Sigure used in Tokyo Ghoul. Love pretty much all versions of it although the original is the best. Visually in the show it is also really good, very stylish and makes you intrigued.

I really enjoyed Shingeki no Kyojin openings but now I am fed up with them, but I need to say that those were real masterpieces.
But besides that I really like:

Noragami openings (both 1st season and Aragoto)
Gintama' 2015 second opening
Kuroshitsuji: Book of CIrcus
One Piece various openings (We go, Share the World, Hands up)
Haikyuu season 1 opening 1
Beezebub opening 1
Deadman Wonderland
