"Kiseki no Umi", the OP for Record of Lodoss War, gets my vote. The song is a moving, melodious composition that doesn't feel boring. The animation, while older, has a well balanced arrangement in the quality put towards the characters and the environments.

As much as I enjoy the Captain Harlock OP, the Record of Lodoss War OP is just such a classic that it's tough to beat. Some of the imagery is just fantastic, with the (cherry blossom?) petals whipping through the wind before the larger scene with everything in slow motion and the two scenes with Parn and Deedlit perched high above the landscape. It really lends a certain power to the visuals that's so often lacking from a couple minute opening or ending sequence.

There is not much to be added, Captain Harlock's OP, even though a great OP theme, simply pales in comparision to Kiseki no Umi.

Harlock's "Endless Odyssey" theme may be a sort of classic (at least I read that in a japanese thread), yet it's still sort of lame.
But even the original Harlock opening could never compete with "Kiseki no Umi", which is another of my all-time favorites that gives me goosebumps when I listen to it, anytime.

You got it backwards, rockefeller! It was "Kiseki no Umi", not "Endless Odyssey".

I thought it was a joke so I didn't say anything before. There was no contest here.
