I am a huge anime fan. However, I do not have Television in my house to watch the anime. I just download them and watch them on my computer. So, I do not have many variety of anime music that I have heard. Anyway, I have some of my favorite music

1. The opening music for Cowboy Bebop
2. Opening music for Kenshin
3. Opening music in Mahoromatic
4. Ending music in Digimon 3

So, what's yours?

I have to say Neon Genesis something. It's the only Anime I've watched and musics in that still are quite terrible. :E
When I was a small school boy I watched some anime movie... It's name was translated to Finnish as "Battle of Earth". I can't remember the music from it.
I really find very few anime series worth watching.
Once I happened to watch one episode of that... Hm. Chamical something... Can't really remember the name. It had potential, but the characters changed their appearance when they told a joke or were laughing. And they stopped in the middle of a fight to laugh and tell jokes.
Someone point me a serious anime series and I'll consider watching it.
IIRC this "humour" added to anime wasn't there back in the days... :(

Ah. I already got lost from the topic. Sorry. Please continue.

Quite a lot, actually... More than particular series, I go more for musicians that I identify working in different anime. I usually prefer the soundtracks themselves over the openings/closings/inserts.

Yuki Kajiura (Kara no Kyoukai, Noir)
Yoko Kanno (Macross Plus, Macross Frontier, Escaflowne, Cowboy Bebop)
Toshihiko Sahashi (Simoun, Gundam Seed, Gundam Seed Destiny)
Kenji Kawai (Ghost in the Shell [movies], Fate/Stay Night, Gundam 00)
Shiro Sagisu (Neon Genesis Evangelion)

Those are the ones that come from the top of my mind, and actually who I have been listening to for a while.

Zucca: If you want good series, I can recommend some. Be warned, I'm a science fiction man-whore... (meaning: I love Science Fiction).

A quick recommendation would be Ergo Proxy. Dark setting, interesting characters and tidbits to philosophical/mythological things make it all the more interesting... Plus, it's a very good example of a science fiction show done right.

Quick edit because I forgot: I recommend also the Kara no Kyoukai movies. Good stories for those who also like supernatural stories.
