@descendfromgrace Oh man, that 1st Attack on Titan opening is great. It's one of the few things my wife pulls out of anime to quote at me from time to time, just for giggles, because she likes the German language.

Best opening that gets me hyped every time is Haikyuu!! S2 OP2. This is some quality stuff here and the song is so addicting:
I usually skip OPs but I never skipped this one.
Also, every Gintama OP and ED because the songs are amazing! Notable mention:

Uverworld - Dtechnolife from Bleach
L'arc en ciel - Ready Steady Go from Full Metal Alchemist
Vision of Escaflowne
Well I have started down an anime rabbit hole....

Excel Saga has a fun opening, but to this day that ending is my favourite. Also great since I never forget the lyrics.

The obvious one is Record of Lodoss War: Chronicles of the Heroic Knight, that's just simply one of the all time greats.
Then I'd say that the opening for Bakumatsu Kikansetsu Irohanihoheto would also be really high up there, but sadly I can't link to it since they have muted or taken down every opening or song uploaded to YT of it.
So instead I'm going with Wolf's Rain.

Really love anime OP so I name a few that currently comes to mind.
Digimon Adventure - Butter-Fly Rest in Peace Kouji Wada. He really made awesome OP that got me hyped
Street Fighter II V - Kaze Fuiteru I just love the song
Inu Yasha - Grip! Was really into Inu Yasha back then and this theme stuck with me
Detective Conan - Magic Only stills unfortunately but her voice is so beautiful and fitting for the song
Detective Conan - Shoudou the series have some amazing artist and one is the band that made the Dragon's Dogma OP
Blue Exorcist - Pride
Full Metal Panic!: The 2nd Raid - Minami Kaze
The Secret of Blue Water - the 1st and my favorite GAINAX series.
Baccano - Guns n' Roses Very upbeat music and love theway they link pictures to other scenes like their other series DRRR!
One Piece - Kokoro no Chizu My favorite ark of the series

@Blueturtle 91 days is a great anime to match that great opening. And Papermoon is amazing.

You guys are making me sad. Their openings were so good, I wish Psycho-Pass' season 2 and Soul Eater's ending were more... conclusive.
Anyway, Soul Eater's first opening is also great. It has some amazing animated sequences. I like how it doesn't shy away from showing Maka as this just awful rage monster, as opposed to making her all kawaii for kawaii's sake.

I only really came here to post Durarara!! and Baccano!'s openings but I've been beaten to the punch on them. Excellent OPs, those.
And just because they don't really get enough recognition I'll also mention a few anime ending themes that are really good. Polar Bear Cafe has a lot of amazing ones, though I can't find the actual videos for them on youtube. While you can look up the songs the video just adds so much more with how they're all done. If you've seen Osomatsu-san (animated by the same company I believe) you'll know what I mean. Another great one is Daily Lives of Highschool Boys because it's just so stupidly funny.

@DeweyDTruman I totally forgot about TTGL, it has a great opening and such a beautiful story. Definitely one of my favorite.

This is one that I remember the most just because... well, it hits so many emotions. Naruto is definitely a series that has had many ups and downs, but at least this exists.

I really hate anime openings for the first 5 episodes of a new series, because they are always riddled with spoilers. I don't want to know every character that's gonna appear in the first 10 episodes. Openings that I actually liked were
Baccano, because it didn't really spoil anything and it felt more like the actual introduction to the characters
the first opening of attack on Titan was great because it captured the vibes of the anime perfectly.
soul eaters first opening is great because the animation just wows you everytime you watch it
the best opening is still no opening. The only inherently good thing about them is that they're always 1:30 long and therefor easy to skip.

I hate myself a little bit for this one, but The Idolmaster's opening is really quite good.
Also the first that always come to mind for me are always
This last one basically defined generations of Latin american kids.
I could probably come up with others I prefer, but these ones are the first that I always think about.

I've been rewatching Gad Guard lately, and the OP for that is really rad. Originally caught episodes here and there on satellite tv years and years ago. Trying to finally watch through the series in order and see every episode now. The whole series is on Youtube thanks to Funimation being generous.
I could name a million of these, so maybe I'll drop chunks at a time? Sorry if you've seen me mention some of these elsewhere on the forums before.
Tenpou Ibun Ayakashi Ayashi OP 2
One of my favorite OPs of all time for an underrated show.
Seto no Hanayome
Extremely playful opening for the best goofy comedy anime I've ever watched.
Kino no Tabi
A girl goes on a philosophical journey through dangerous lands with strange customs on a talking motorcycle.
Arakawa Under the Bridge
Second OP is nice too, but this first OP is extra special.
Beck: Mongolian Chop Squad
Catchy OP for a show with a vastly superior English dub to the original.
The World God Only Knows
Sticks with me. Look up the crazy long full OP song for a journey.
Trash OP music, but trash you'll be singing along to after you get into the series.
Anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day
This and the ED make watching this a nonstop tearfest.
Collection of Key Anime Openings
Cheated, but I don't want to have to pick between them. They're all excellent.
