I listen to and watch the opening once, after that I skip it. If the opening changes, I repeat the process.

The same applies to endings.

I always skip previews.


Because of this, I have a slight dislike for shows that have added scenes after the ending and previews. Because I generally stop the episode or if there is a next episode, I hit the next button as soon as the ending kicks on.

I usually skip it if it's a song I don't care that much for or I'm not using the time to do other things before the episode starts.

I pretty much always skip the opening and ending. Some animes like to have part of the show in the middle of the opening so I usually skim the opening a few times to make sure it isnt a show like that, then after that I skip it every time. I usually dont like the music.

It always depends on the opening and ending and if I'm marathoning the series or not. I'll often skip openings and endings I've seen after a few times when marathoning series, but other times I never skip them.

For example, I never skip the opening and ending of Watamote, the ops style fits too well, and it's a fun song to listen too, and the ending with Tomoko's singing is just great

To be honest, I will skip all but the most awesome songs after one viewing. Like the first OP for Toradora!, or the first ED for K-On!, or... I believe it was the second ED for Kokoro Connect. The EDs for both Gravitation and Ouran High School Host Club also apply here. Oh, and the OP for Maria+Holic. Or Neon Genesis Evangelion which, in my opinion, was the only good thing about that series.

Most of the time is just: "Ok, 1:30min ahead"... But there are some special ones of course. Like I don't know, Gosick had great OP imo and I also remember crying back in a day at 2nd OP to TT Gurren Lagann, for it was recap of 1st half basicly, with other verse of the main song.

I do not skip the opening songs, in my opinion they usually get me even more pumped to watch the actual episode. And I usually like most anime openings, otherwise the only time I skip them is when it isn't my first time watching.

I don't skip openings, even if I don't like them, though about 95% of the time, I do, so it tends not to be a problem. I find the opening helps to set the mood for what I'm about to watch, and feels more like part of the show. Endings, I tend to skip after I've seen them once or twice, which sometimes causes me to miss post-ending clips. I don't watch previews unless they're done in an entertaining way, and even then, I try to avoid them, as I'm not a fan of spoilers.

I always skip the opening. Partly because watching the same opening every episode would take too much time, especially for longer series. But i mostly skip them because they spoil whats going to happen sometimes. I don't like going into the show and knowing every important character before they're even introduced or that a characters that doesn't seem important is gonna be a badass later in the show.

I'll listen to both the opening and ending fully in the first episode and then decide if they are good enough for me to keep watching them ever episode. that has only happened 2 times in the 100+ series that ive watched.
