Bokurano's Uninstall. Definately matches the anime.

There's a lady on YouTube who sings English versions of anime songs, she does it well. Sang uninstall quite well, though she did admit the sound editing didn't merge the vocals well enough with the tune. (she didn't do the sound editing though)

Another of my favourite end themes:

Arai Akino's Hiru no Tsuki from Outlaw Star.
Grand Low Maker of Mischief, Claw of Chaos, Fang of Anarchy

Prefer Outlaw Star's Opening myself.

Also liked the opening of .hack.

I prefer .hack's ED myself, but the opening is good too

Naruto Shippuuden's first end theme (Episodes 1-18) is one of my favorites,
Home Made Kazuko - Nagareboshi
together with the third opening of the very same show (Episodes 54-77),
Ikomono Gakari - Blue Bird
they give me goosebumps everytime I listen to them.

And the very first opening theme of One Piece still makes me smile:
Hiroshi Kitadani - We are!

All three are spot on for the chosen series, and the story arcs they show.

An idol group teams up with a former Megadeth guitarist to record an OP for a space pirate themed anime. This is the result http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UZmNRLvycNQ

and it is awesome.

Love somebody's good! the S1 opening was awesome too http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0pEtx_cN1tw

Oh and thanks to whoever was talking about YUA and Dirty Pair, ended up watching the former and couldn't sustain interest in the latter. YUA is freaking great.

In other OP news, the OP for Muv-Luv Alternative: Total Eclipse (stealth harem! Get to cover!) "Go to the Top" by Koda Kumi is freaking awesome. Especially in the car at 100+ on the interstate. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Knm33xhP-_4 \M/

And now an old classic: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-q9I-3tpqbk :-bd

I really enjoyed YUA!

When it comes to Dirty Pair, I rather enjoyed Flash more than the Original.

So am I! I'm currently up to the point where the OP changes from "To Be Myself", to "Love Somebody".

I'm glad I listened to those reviews and gave this series a chance. This is one of the few series I've seen where nearly the entire cast is likeable, but my favorites, so far, are Natsumi, Strike-Man \M/, and Yoriko.

It's too bad there was never a crossover between YUA! and Patlabor. I would have love seeing the Boukuto Precinct meet and interact with the SVU. :-j
