Samurai Champloo and Blench have the best opening songs. For ending songs, I hate them them all this year. I guess if Witch Hunter Robin is included, then i like its opening and ending songs.

OP - Uta-Kata - "Omoi wo Kanadete"

ED - Uta-Kata - "Itsuka Tokeru Namida"

both performed by Savage Genius.

For me, there is no doubt whatsoever. These songs are both great melodic pop music, and both pierce my heart. The OP sets up a positive feeling with an edge of melancholy, the ED is melancholy with a hint of hope. Perfect for the strange atmosphere of this wonderful anime.

Best opening and ending for 2004? Well I don't know if they're the best, but my favorites are the opening to grenadier and the ending to genshiken. Now if I only knew the titles for these songs...
Reading through the lists reminded me of how many good openings and endings there were this year.

Definetely the Bleach opening (never heard a Japanese rap before ) and I like the ending theme of School Rumble as well.

There's been a few good OPs and EDs this year, but only a few are easily remembered and only four are hummable at the moment... I guess those win.

Best OP:
Paranoia Agent - Wins hands down for visual and audio creativity. The nutcase characters laughing in very disparate places was wild , and the song was hard to explain what genre it is: "Aaaaaaeeeeaaaaa, ahah ee oh wa...."

Best ED:
Midori no Hibi - I'm sure all us fans see streetlights turning on when we hear the beginning of that song playing piano. Bing, bing, pong, poom...... soshite, kizuita toki ni-I-i....

Kerero Gunzou - AFRO! (afro) GUNZOU! (gunzou!) 3, 2, 1, FIRE!

Naruto - (This doesn't have to be 2004-only anime, right?) The ending with the song Ryuusei and the girls in swinsuits. Mmmm mmm. Lawdy. "I believe your promise...." Heavens that a rockin song too.

-k

P.S. Did Naruto also have the ending with "Harmonia" and the two girls singing the song as little vector-animated characters this year? "Ne, kikoemasu kaaaaa??"
Gorgeous. Say what you want about Naruto but those two endings were wonderful.

Yah the track that was used as the second ending for Naruto was nice...

imo... the best OP of 2004 has to be the third opening of Fullmetal Alchemist.... and the best ED of 2004 has to be the ending track for Sunabouzu...

I can't even remember how many endings for Naruto there has been. Was Harmonia only the second one?!?

This thread has made me listen to MP3s. Oh, how I love good anime OPs and EDs... it reminds me of the pleasent anticipation of watching a great anime, and the great satisfaction of having just seen a great episode. I feel like kissing the Japanese for spending the money to keep this aspect of TV and filmaking high-quality. It's something western tv and movie producers don't want to do anymore. A CURSE ON THEM AND THEIR CHILDREN TO THE 5TH GENERATION OR SOMETHING.

Kempis Curious: Yup Harmonia was the 2nd one ^^

I really like that Harmonia ending too
The current Naruto opening (Seishun Kyousoukyoku) is rather good also

Hmm...about this year I would say ( with the two I've just mentionned ):

Openings:
-Koi Kaze: Koi Kaze

-The Melody of Oblivion: Will
-Yakitate!! Japan: Houki Kumo
-Kannazuki no Miko: Re-sublimity
-Inu Yasha: One Day, One Dream
-Harukanaru Toki no Naka De ~Hachiyoushou~: Haruka, Kimi no Moto He...

Endings:
-Yakitate!! Japan: Sunday
-Mai HIME: Kimi ga Sora datta
-Harukanaru Toki no Naka De ~Hachiyoushou~: flowin' ~Ukigumo~

...ah many good songs (I'm sure I've forgot some)...

I really liked the OP of Mai Hime.

Other than that though, I really liked the OP and ED of Gundam Seed Destiny. No other OP and ED songs sound as emotional or as upbeat as those IMO.

OP : Elfen Lied and Gits S.A.C 2nd Gig.

This should obviously have gone in the music forum...

Anyway, there's a similar thread there for the last half of 2004 (with the results of a Japanese poll as well) and here's my list of songs for that. (I don't feel like doing a new one to cover the entire year.)

Quote:
If I had to make a top 10 it would probably go like this:

01. Shangri-La [Soukyuu no Fafner opening]
02. agony [Kannazuki no Miko ending]
03. Separation [Soukyuu no Fafner ending]
04. Re-sublimity [Kannazuki no Miko opening]
05. Mizu no Madoromi [Fantastic Children ending]
06. Kinjirareta Asobi [Rozen Maiden opening]
07. Unlimited [Samurai 7 opening]
08. Houki Kumo [Yakitate!! Japan opening]
09. Sunday [Yakitate!! Japan ending]
10. Shining Days [My Hime opening]

And if Madlax still counts, I would add Hitomi no Kakera as well, perhaps just beating Kinjirareta to the 6th position.
Shangri-La must be among the very best I ever heard. Great energy in that one, always gets me pumped.
