Sound and Animation are the biggest factors for me, but certainly creativity and how it is all put together also factors in as well.

The OP of Samurai Champloo I think hits on all the points I look for well. The sound fits the mood brilliantly, the animation is crisp and well composed, it gets me pumped for the episode, and it is very creative with the mishmash of styles.

Generally, I look for creativity and style. Sometimes, it could also be the way it sounds like the lyrics but if all three combines into a single OP song, I would definitely not skip it.

Plus, how many anime have a flipping rap song for their OP? The song by itself makes Champloo's opening unique. And when you combine in the visuals, you have something special.

Anime openings and endings kinda make the bulk of the music I listen to nowadays so it's a big deal that I watch plenty of series and hear some new good songs. As long as the song makes me feel good inside no matter what the genre I'll like it lol. When the animation and the song are both awesome and well in synch then I usually don't skip the openings to get me pumped up for the show and same goes for endings except instead of pumping me up it gives me a good platform for collecting my thoughts about the episode.

I focus almost exclusively on the song and am unconcerned with the animation that goes with it. Any OPs or ED's I do like I usually download to listen to later.
I also rarely watched the OP more than once if that, i almost always skipp it, maybe if it is really good I'll watch it once or twice while watching the series. But since I am unconerned with the animation and I am going to download ones I want to listen to anways I can listen to the song later when I download it.
