I have to say there's not too much that I really like. I have plenty of it on my iPod but I'll list what I really consider great.

OPENING CREDITS

Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex
- song is called Inner Universe by Origa -
This is just sublime. Normally I skip past the opening theme of anime I watch, but GITS had me sitting there not wanting it to end. This is exactly what a starting theme should be!

Pita Ten
This is the best of the cutey songs! "I wish, hello wake up angel!" And the style of the opening video is great but the music really makes it for me.



ENDING CREDITS

Ranma 1/2
- Season ... 5 or 6 -
Funny as hell and it sums up all the things we love about the series.
"Up in blue sky silly blimp go by,
Where it come from, where it go,
Ziggy zaggy it fly high!"


OTHER VOCAL

unsure... most songs within anime are too pop for me


INSTRUMENTAL

gack ... umm its been too long to think. I really love the songs that grab your emotions, can't think of any right now though.


Of everything above I HIGHLY RECOMMEND you download Origa - Inner Universe. It's the bees knees of anime songs ;P

Opening :

from Anne of Green Gables
"Kikoeru Kashira" : I really like this song, it has unique beat, beautiful classical instrumentation, and well trained vocal. An uncommon sweet song, but it's very nice to listen. Just listen to it and you'll be drooled.

from Fruits Basket
'For Fruits Basket" - Okazaki Ritsuko : It started with synth piano and vocals. And the instruments you'd hear is only that and synth string. A soft song.

Ending :

from Princess Tutu
"Watashi no Ai wa Chiisai Keredo" - Okazaki Ritsuko : I can't say anything more about it. Sublime. A truly beautiful works of arts (Ritsuko-san writes it herself, same as most of her songs). Gawd, the strings is so beautiful in this song, oh no, everything here is beautiful. A must-hear for everyone that respect music as it is.

Insert song :

from Noir
"Canta per Me" (the original italian version) : An operatic song. The italian one is a lot more beautiful than the Japanese. version. The vocal and language fits better for the song, I think. I think of old Sicilia when I hear this one.

It's Akai Kutsu no Sunday (Red Shoes Sunday), performed by DoCo (A group, consists of the voice actress of the anime Ranma 1/2). "Aozora Hikousen..." Yes, the song is cute, makes me smile whenever I hear it.

I'm sorry, but the absolutely best anime song is, without any kind of contest, "Ranma no baka".
Also known as the "Baka song".

Get it. Find the video. It's hilarious. You will laugh. You will want to see it again. You will love the subtitles. Even if you understand Japanese.

I have heard it. It's funny, and I love to see it time to time. But IMO, musically it's not that good. You won't like it if you're not a Ranma fan

I tend to like openings more than endings, although I don't have a wide selection.

Star Ocean EX - Go to the Light
Sorcerer Hunters - What's Up
Slayers - all three openings

Uhh... I'll think of more as they come.

I agree, Benit149, I tend to like openings more then endings too. Openings are usually more upbeat, while ending are usually calming, to show the end of the episode.

There seem to be so many of these 'award-category' topics popping up lately. I wonder why? :D

Anyway:

Best Opening Song(s)

Melissa {FMA} - This one has never gone off my list, no matter how people gripe about it sounding too 'normal' for a cool series such as FMA. Definitely one of the best.

Rewrite {FMA} - Also good. Need I say why?

Blaze {Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles}- Despite the fact that the anime has been rather of a letdown compared to the anime, it has a decent opening song.

Tsubasa no Pleasure Line {Chrno Crusade} - Fast and leaves a feel-good feeling.

Invoke {Gundam Seed} - Fast pace with a addictive rhythm.

Best Ending Song(s)

Find The Way {Gundam Seed} - Slow and nice.

Sadly, there aren't many songs in which I like....most of them aren't as memorable as the opening songs, as I prefer songs that are upbeat.

Best Vocal Song(s)

Azumaria no Uta {Chrno Crusade}- It still remains a mystery to all exactly which song she's singing, though.

Akatsuki no Kuruma {Gundam Seed}

Best Non-vocal Song(s)

Sadness and Sorrow {Naruto}
Gyakuten {Naruto}

I find that the Naruto series has one of the best non-vocal/instrumentals that I've heard. The Gundam Seed songs come in at a close second, but the Naruto songs still reign supreme in this category.

I agree at 50% with that. The other 50% will go to Naruto's 3rd opening "Kanashimi wo Yasashisa Ni".
