what if there was an anime that you're forced to watch the op????

Well, I guess it would be hard for a show to qualify for this thread if its OP starts out at the beginning of the episode... I suppose you could say that something that had such a good PV it hooked you qualifies though...

But the real spirit of the thread has to do with that opening scene that most anime have before the OP and the opening credits.

So, for the previous couple of posters who seemed to be talking about "catchy OPs", that isn't what we're looking for here. This is about the hook, the teaser, the prologue whatever you call it. Think James Bond movies with their opening scene of Bond doing something absolutely amazing that may or may not be related to the overall plot of the movie. That kind of thing.

Bakemonogatari. (And it wasn't because of the ridiculously drawn-out pantsu shot at the beginning!) It was confusing, rapid-fire, fascinating... and by the time Senjougahara dropped like a feather into Araragi's arms, I was a diehard fan. Then the OP started.

I'll give a nod to Tatami Galaxy as well. Although, while I know I was fascinated by the teaser, I may not have been hooked until it cut into one of the most original OPs I've ever seen, which was set to a tune by Asian Kung-Fu Generation, no less.

Welcome to the NHK

Wish I could write Toradora in that list too, but Taiga annoyed me so much the first time I tried watching it that I stopped watching it.
But later a friend watched it and told me it was great, so I gave it another chance.
I didn't get hooked before after like ep 5.
It's one of my fav animes now, rewatched it sometimes.

I never got hooked on toradora either, Honestly the only reason I watched it and stuck with it was because one of my friends liked it and I needed a conversation starter for when we hung out later haha. I ended up getting hooked about 6 or 7 episodes in and It ended up becoming one of my favorite animes.

Cowboy Bebop never interested me until i kept it on and heard the song... whenever i saw it on the tv guide, i thought "What the hell is "Cowboy Bebop"? it's probably one of those shows that they SAY is anime, but it's not drawn out right...." but the one time i didn't change the channel when it was coming on and heard JAZZ music as it's opening song, i thought "WOW.. of all types of music, they stick JAZZ to it?!" and as soon as i saw Spike, that was it.. i was really hooked after that

Sword Art Online got me hooked before i even watched it... i just read what it was about and i was intrigued... just watched eps 1-3 and i'm totally hooked on it and i LOVE the opening song on this show as well
