The weirdest and most random opening theme I've seen is:

The Magical Shopping Arcade of [I'm not going to try and spell it, since it would be horribly wrong.]

For openings it would be a tie between One Piece OP 5 , the Onegai Teacher Opening and the Sengoku Basara 2 Opening.

For endings it's the last ending of Hayate no Gotoku Season 1.

Higurashi No Naka Koro Ni's op was Pretty much a perfect opening, song and content ~ nipah.

Death Note's first opening was amazing.

Shinrei Tantei Yakumo has a cool one, love the song and the animation effects are good.

Clannad and Clannad ~ The After Story are both good, prefer the 2nd song but overall the original Clannad opening slightly more awesome. Both of these are really pretty songs.

Black Lagoon, Yu Gi-Oh!, Angel Beats! and Highschool Of The Boobs Dead all deserve a mention.


As for endings I can only remember the epic that is Clannad's Dango Daikazoku and Bleach's first ending, Life Is A Boat.

Here's an obscure one. I've loved both the opening and the ending of Antique Bakery. They're catchy and look quite unique. =3

And as for one most find overrated, the first Bleach opening. I don't care that it has nothing to do with the show, it was catchy and looked artsy and great.

I actually like most of the Bleach openings and endings. I don't watch it anymore, but I like checking back regularly to see new openings and endings. XD

Beck~ I guess it's really rather simple... but I love it.

Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei. So crazy and perfect. (You really must watch this anime if you haven't already.)

The opening to Gundam Wing, not only for nostalgias sake but also for the theme song, has got to be my favorite. FLCLs is cool too but I <3 the Pillows.

Arakawa Under the Bridge scores my vote for favorite OP and ED of recent memory. Actually, the OP and ED were probably the main reason I decided to watch the show in the first place.

Bakemonogatari ED - Really, this ED was the one that attracted me to this anime. Smooth animation, SUPER NICE SONG.

Fairy Tail OP 6 - After the last opening, this is definitely one if the best FT opening.

Amagami SS OP 2 - I prefer this one over the first opening.

Dragon Crisis OP - I don't like the anime much but.. this opening is win! (The song not animation)

For now, that's the only OP/ED sequence I'm impressed with.
