Apart from the ones already mentioned, Fate/Zero op 2, Noragami ops 1 and 2 and all the AOT ops are really amazing.

Sangatsu no Lion 1, 2, 3 or 4. But I'd say the second opening
O grant me the mercy of the land! O grant me the joy of the heavens! Release me from my yoke of iron! Thus shall our souls be saved.

No game no life s1 opening visual is different from other anime.

If you want different art style ,then you should really go for it.

Both kaguya sama ops manager to do something that makes sense with the concept

The your lie in April opening 1 reveals the full plot without actually spoiling.

Kuroko op 3 and Dr. Stone op 2 both also have stellar visuals

Definetly gonna agree on the JJK openings; I also liked every single 3-gatsu no Lion opening.

Owarimonogatari 2nd Season's Opening's also great:


Some other picks:



Don't mind me,

Kokkoku's opening is the most stellar one i've ever seen. It's a shame the show is super ass.

Beastars got great stop motion animation



Gosick had nice looking art noeveau inspired animation



And Elfen Lied was the best tribute to Gustav Klimt anyone has ever made.



If I can recall any more examples, I'll come back and edit the post to add them.

Goblin Slayer has a hauntingly beautiful opening. From nice visuals to being descriptive of it's characters. Beautiful and fitting music raises the whole intro in my opinion.

That being said, I don't have much anime experience compared to others here and just thought this is among the ones who stand out the most.

Just by visuals I'm going to go with Ef a Tale of Melodies. Gosick is really cool too.

Golden Wind OP 1 - Fighting Gold

My absolute favorite OP in terms of visuals is:

School-Live! OP - Friend Shitai
The way this opening gradually evolves as the story progresses is really clever
Uh... please read my novel?

Uchouten Kazoku 2 for the atmosphere, strong compositing, and for just how much is going on in general.


FMAB OP3 for the smooth af shot transition.


Magi OP2 for how lively and joyful it is.


This probably doesn't belong here, but I'll mention it anyway for having one of my favorite animation cut ever at 1:08-1:12 (Prisma Illya 2wei Herz).
