Favourite Anime Openings & Outros

A list of my favourite opening and outros/endings in anime. Judged on Song and the content within the segment. E.g. Foreshadowing, great animation, well synced to song/linked with lyrics, symbolism etc (Not counting films but if I was, the opening to Ghost In The Shell & A Silent Voice would be on here)
NOTE: The Anime doesn't even need to be necessarily good. Just the opening.
