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!
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.
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.
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
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 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.
