    Default Do you usually skip the Opening/Ending songs of an anime series?

    Well, We all know that Opening/Ending songs are part of an Anime series right? but do you sometimes skip it? why?

    For me, If i find the Op/Ending song somewhat boring I skip it, but sometimes the main reason why i skip Openings & Ending songs are due to my lack of time. But if i find it interesting, I'll never ever going to skip it!

    How about you? Do you skip Opening and Ending songs? Why?

    I usually only end up listening to them once or twice, I don't like them too much.

    If I like the song I'll usually listen to it every time, otherwise I'll typically watch the entire thing at least once and then skip it. Normally I like the songs though so I do end up watching them.

    Hmmmm If the song is catchy like Fantastic Dreamers, Crossing Field, Unravel, The Hero! etc~ songs like that really sing to me and make me wanna listen.
    If i think its slow or something i dont like tho I'd definitely skip hahaha.

    If it's the first time they are playing it, I will definitely listen to it, or if they have a different song. Otherwise I will skip it. Although for the last episode in the series I always watch the whole thing.

    I think for me its about half of the time I skip it. If I'm doing something else, then I usually just let it play. If its a new anime or an op/ed I really enjoy then I'll watch them most of the time.

    I skip it due to many reasons, i'll name some..

    1st, if i've listened to it for like 5 times, i skip it if it's the same op and ed again and again.
    2nd. I skip OP Because it contains future spoilers, which i hate, or it would introduce all the characters which ruins the hype for me.
    and lastly, i just don't prefer to listen to it :D except for CODE GEASS, only anime i listened from the very beginning till the end. even if it spoiled me

    I'll listen (and watch) at least once for every new OP/ED. If it's not too remarkable I will usually skip the subsequent ones, but I will listen repeatedly if the song is good or the animation sequence is interesting.

    I'll usually watch them once and then I almost always skip them. There have probably been quite a few anime sries where I never watched the whole op or ed even once because it was bad or had a terrible song. I don't like a lot of the crappy Japanese pop music garbage used in anime anyways although occasionally some anime will use decent music. For instance Gintama, Naruto, and Hunter X Hunter had some really good songs for some of their openings and endings.

    I usually watch the first episodes opening and ending then i skip the rest of the episodes opening/ending. There in not much that is to be seen after that because some opening songs tell you the whole story for a short 1:30 second clip.

    I usually listen to the opening and ending for the first or second episode and then skip it. but there are some anime that i listen to the opening and ending till the last episode like mirai nikki and no game no life cause i think the opening and ending was cool and i never feel bored listening to it.

    if i really like the opening & it is not too long then i wont skip
    if it is, i usually skip as from the 7th episode

    for the ending song, i listen to it only in ep 1 ^^ to save time
    and in most animes that i watched the ending song is not that nice

    I will listen to/watch the op/ed for at least the first episode. If I like it I'll listen to it/watch it every episode, but i I'm not interested in it enough I'll usually skip it.

    Sometimes if I like the song, I keep the headphones on and knock out as many pushups as I can.

    Since I'm sitting on a chair doing nothing, I thought "hell might as well."

    I love most endings and openings but if I am tired of them or I don't have enough time, then I will skip them. If I like them a lot, I usually download an MP3 to listen to instead of watch.
