What are some really good anime openings that aren't that well known or are from non-mainstream shows? For example, back in the day, I thought Kurokami's 2nd opening (tRANCE by Granrodeo) was pretty cool.

Servant x Service, the 3D-like art and the song is a wonderful and a very underrated mix imo.

Probably Ace Attorney Anime Openings and Captain Tsubasa (2018) Openings. I'm surprised they have good Openings for a slightly-above mediocre anime to me.

Ayakashi: Japanese Classic Horror had a good OP. Chihayafuru's ED was pretty solid and the new Fruits Basket has both. I just don't know how popular the latter is.

But the title said opening D;

Anyways, this one is a good one (for me, atleast) and unknown by many:

Shinsekai yori op. No one knows about it, no one saw it, even people who watched the anime.
