Just a really quick question because I'm very curious about what other people think. As the question says, do you skip anime openings or watch them? Personally, I watch them for half the series then I stop because I get bored of it. How about you?

If the song doesn't suck ass, then yes, I listen to them. Some openings are cool since they change their animation over the course of the series and usually they just get you hyped up for a new episode of said series!

Skip, of course. Watching the opening is a waste of time even if it's only 1 min and 30 secs.

For every new op, I listen to a few secs to see if I like it. No matter if I like it or not, I'll skip it for the rest of the eps that it's played in.

If I like it from the first few secs, I listen to the whole thing and if I still like it, it gets added to my Fav Ops/Eds list.

I usually watch the first 2,3 episodes and then I stop, it makes me save on 12 episode 22 minutes and so I can watch 1 episode extra with this time

I always watch and pay attention to the OPs in the first three episodes, then after that:
If it's good (ex.: K-On, SAO): always watch it.
If it's okay (ex.: Hyouka, Oregairu): sometimes watch it, sometimes skip it, depends if I'm in the mood or not...
If I don't like it (ex.: Zankyou no Terror, Fate/stay Night): mostly skip it, sometimes I watch it again to see if I like it more.

edit: for anyone that ends up reading this post, here's a good site to watch anime openings and endings: https://themes.moe/

I do not have the energy in my body to bother trying to skip OPs. My soul gives up before I can even make my arm move to the mouse so I can skip. Even for shows with terrible OPs like the currently airing Franxx, I'll listen to them just to add to my own suffering.
erased sucks lol what an original opinion

When an opening isn't that good then I don't wanna waste my time on it. Even if it is good, I only watch for the first few times then skip for the rest of the show so I can "savor" for later use. When you listen to a track too many times it'll get tasteless, no matter how great it is.

The time waiting for online video to load after skipping the OP is equal to the op itself so I don't bother to skip it.

I watch in the first ep. If I like it I watch it everytime. Like Kokkoku from this season.

I only watch in the first episode and then I skip them until the opening changes. Then I do the same thing. If I really really really like it, I watch a few more times and try to sing.

I always watch the OP the first time it plays. If I really like it, I'll watch it every time. If not, I skip it.

No. What I used to do is to just listen to the opening (by opening another tab for MAL for example), but now I watch it as well

skip for avoid spoilers, but after watched like 80% of the series(or before the opening changes, it's usually on half) i won't skip the opening, so later/someday when i hear this song i will recall this anime in my mind, sometime it feels nostalgic haha, sounds weird, huh? hahaha, yeah, actually i love it when i recall anime by hearing its OST

most of the time yes, sometimes I will watch if the opening is really good and I feel like listening to the music

Depends on whether I like it or not, if I do then I watch it 9 times out of 10, otherwise I just skip. But I think that's just a given with a lot of people.

Irmgard really depends on the opening and in what mood I am while watching the anime if I am doing an anime marathon I usually skip the opening because I don't want to see the same opening 20/40 times in a row but when I come home and start watching anime i usually don't skip the op the first 1-4 times

I always watch both openings and endings, unless they're so bad I just can't stand them. But that rarely happens.

Unless I’m binging the anime I normally watch it. Most anime openings are good to me so I have no reason to skip them

I watch them almost always.
There's rarely an anime which has a very bad opening to me, so I generally watch them.
I watch endings too.

I usually watch the OPs of anime if I really like them, but the majority of the time, I just skip them so as to cut down on watching time - same goes for EDs, actually.

Most of the time I skip the intro, I usually listen to the Op at least once then skip it until a new one comes on.

Unless if I really loke the OP song then I will watch through it, but usually I skip them after watcing it once or twice.

I used to, but I almost never do anymore. If I'm bored of it, I might flip to FB for a moment or something, but I let the whole OP play out.

I watch opening one time in full lenght, if i dont like the song, i will skip intro for the rest of anime episodes, unless new one eventually, usually in second half of 24 episdes long anime. Then process repeats.

No matter how good an anime OP/ED is, I can't help skipping a few sometimes.

I always watch it once all the way through to see if I like it but a lot of the times I'll skip it afterwards. However, I've been watching Noragami Aragoto and I'm never skipping that one.
