Not every show has that... At least not for the original FMA. I don't watch all that much there though, so I couldn't say if that's a representative sample.

devilman crybaby is horrible, but yeah you can skip intros. I tend to let them play out, I can "suffer" for about a minute and a half, besides I also have Hulu, you can't skip anything and you get commercials (which I have no problem with) about the length of an intro sometimes so I'm good. best of luck with your streaming fun.

After you watch one episode it'll automatically give you the option to skip. But I usually like watching the intros.

I heard mixed opinions about Devilman Crybaby. Some love it, some hate it. Haven't seen it myself yet.

I was happy with Devilman Crybaby.

The sex part was....Well, it was there for a reason. Not gratuitous. Or rather it was gratuitous for a reason. And the art style was more experimental (like bakemonogatari).

I think it was a take on the franchise that was SUPPOSED to be more artsy. There were characters recognizable from other entries, including Devilwoman, the main character was still the same as far as I remember (never got too far into it), and it was watchable compared to some of the others... (devilman vs. cyborg 009?????).

I'm not arguing it was better than the original or even on par, (that would REALLY start a war and I haven't seen the original yet. It's old and thus it may be hard to find, though it's in my youtube queue), but it was a bit more true in theme than other entries (again, Devilman vs. cyborg 009....) in that it was a moralilty play, and though that part was obvious, it was nice to see them pull up the "being good kinda pisses people off and seems pretty damned wimpy and you're probably going to win by losing" theme than the other heavy handed morality plays that the good guy is pure and untouchable, and jesus will save you and the world is good and goodness is awesome and always going to win. They also pulled out a classic gainax ending which fit really well.

Buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut I think a lot of hate comes from people who were diehard fans of the earlier entries, or they simply didn't understand what they were seeing play out.

As for netflix, it kinda does that automatically when you binge watch, and I can't remember for how long. Ending credits less so because they use that time to ask you if you want to watch the next (technically allowing you to skip), or if you want to watch something else.

with ending credits they are either asking you if you wan to skip to the next, or they want to get you aware of who did what. I can remember two years plus since it's been skipping the intro, but it could have been longer. it's a default thing, as stated, towards binge watching. if there is any "new" content that the computer doesn't recognize then it will play said content and then here comes the intros and the likes. now leaving netflix and coming back, you're trapped with intros again until you've watched at least one full episode. sometimes it plays the whole thing because if you don't tell them you're there, it'll stop playing and here comes the intros again.

with Hulu there is no skipping, however, if you have autoplay on it'll either skip to the next episode automatically at the end of the episode or it'll ask if you want to skip now as long as there aren't any images running in the ending credits. as I only have these two streaming clients I'm unable to answer the yays and nays for streaming. best of luck on your binge and watching fun.

Yeah, my bad. I haven't been watching too much stuff on Netflix so i thought that every show has that option.

I found Devilman Crybaby entertaining, but I wouldn't call it good. I liked the animation style and protagonist, but I disliked the pacing (it became too fast).

Yes I discovered that the last time I had Netflix. It is amazing and I wish CR would do it, too. I always skip intros.
