How do you feel when a full anime OP/ED is not as great as the TV size version?

I get quite disappointed when a full version of a anime OP or ED gets released but isn't as good as the TV version. Not because I have listened to the TV version more, but more like the full version somehow changes charm of the actual song.
Right now its for Dimension W. Loved the TV version OP, but when I heard the full version that was just released recently, I was shocked by how much the song changed, the instrumentals changed slightly, the pitch and volume of the vocals changed, the song just sounds so different.
Or in Parasyte, where the TV ver. was great to listen too, but after that point in the full song, everything after that just sounds off.
What do you guys think?

I rarely listen to openings outside of the actual anime, and so far all the whole songs that I DID listen to, weren't disappointing.

Indifferent. Besides, if I don't like the TV version, then chances are I won't like the full version...

Yeah I get what you're saying, I feel the same for Erased right now. I'm not disappointed though. it just sounds like a totally different song, somehow, but I like both the TV and full version. It's not just cut, it's edited too, though.

Completely agree on parasyte, sounded a lot different and I didn't really like it

No, I've never thought that way. It's more like I hear a 30 second preview on the music productions Youtube (usually for Rejet/Broccoli and idol music) and then the full version is mediocre.

The only situation where I wouldn't like the full version is when I've overplayed the TV Size way too much.

Yeah sometimes the edits are much better than the full version.

That's rare for me. Mostly, I prefer the full version over the TV size.

Rarely find one, except one of 1 of cooking master boy OP. Since i usually skip theme song nowaday, so it is not a problem.


However, for bad cut i think there are many theme that straight jump to singing part without build up.

Example is one of steins gate ending (sky something),full version of it is much better imo.
Watching style atm:

1. Mindless Gaming + Anime streaming with dual monitor
2. Focused + Anime binged watching with speed up
3. Couch / Bed Anime watching with large TV
4. Relaxing in virtual cinema with VR.

It's fine to me since it's longer. And there are lots of full version that's better too.

Nothing....

I'll just save the TV version on my PC and delete the full version immediately if I downloaded it.

Honestly, there is not much about to worry here if that happens, though there are some rare cases where the TV version of OP/ED is better than its full version. To Aru Majutsu No Index II's "No Buts" for one.

I feel kinda let down, especially if the track in the OP or ED sounds hype.

I remember waiting for the Parasyte OP and being disappointed afterwards.

I feel the same way about Kuuchuu Buranko's OP. The full version isn't as hype and fun.

If I like the tv version, I will most likely like the full version.

Yea this. Was pretty hyped to hear the full version and when it cameout, it was just a clusterfuck of what the hell.

Another one would Bleach's last OP, Harukaze. It sounds fine in the TV size but in the full version, one of the vocals gets a small solo bit but man her voice just makes me cringe.

I have never encountered this. If I like the OP/ED version, I will surely like the full one as well.

Wise words.

Indeed, they sound quite different from each other but I like them both. I listen to both on my phone.

This rarely happens to me to be honest. I usually end up liking the full version and even if I think the TV version is a bit better the full one grows on me quickly.

When the full anime OP isn't as great as the TV size, a part of me dies inside.

Just listen to Parasyte's full OP and know what real shit is all about. I even downloaded the TV version of it because of how shitty the full song was.

On a lesser note, some of Sawano Hiroyuki's songs don't sound good in full version like X.U and Before My Body Runs Dry.

Both of Attack on Titan's full OPs were letdowns too. You just can't stretch the epicness to a full song can you?

Probably the only case in with I prefered the TV version more than the full. The full version of Parasyte opening is the song at the beginning and random screams later :/

I think I'm the only who actually likes the full opening of Parasyte, I find the middle parts to be a fantastic buildup for the latter parts of the song.

Omg yes the Parasyte one was so disappointing:/
I get so sad, because I enjoyed them so much in the show, and the actual song is not at all what I wanted
