Yeah I just skip them mostly, waste of time.
I liked the SEL and Dazumanga ops, but not enough that I watched them more than the first time and then another for the last episode to prolong the experience a bit.
Only exception I can remember is Tonari no Seki-Kun, fit with the rest so good that I let it play out in full every ep.

Good taste. May sound weird but SEL’s OP will always be special to me. Start watching it when I was really depressed after a bad break up and it felt comforting somehow. That and the closing themes of Samurai Champloo and Higurashi.

Say what you will about the show but this is one of my favorite OP songs

A few more of the top my head
pretty much any FMA or AoT theme

And of course


And like a hundred more. I’ll post a more thorough list of my favorites later.

Honestly szs music was offensive. No jap has EVER been able to do metal or punk correctly. It fucking sucks.

The show was great. Don't get me wrong.

It seemed liked at an attempt at metal though. Every intro.

The season 3 intro animation was pretty good. Ya definitely can't get away with a space shuttle launch failure explosion on American tv and that's kinda metal that they did that

It's minimal and has tons of openings and endings. I use it daily for my inspirational needs

I hate when OPs have shitty overly technical or just plain uncomfortable/oversaturated piano/violin j-rock excessiveness, at least that makes OPs like Mushishi or JoJo (for contrast) stand out. A good OP is not one that is "wow so epic" but just plain catchy or tone setting. I've never found another anime with a theme like Mushishi. But the ones that always stay with me are bangers like Ushio and Tora first OP or something like GTO. Cromartie High Space Dandy, Cowboy Bebop etc. Just good fuckin songs for good shows. You can tell there was care in the selection of the track. When a track is just generically "epic" it's usually a good inidicator of what the show is gonna be like.

So in my mind the Super Robot shows or 80s anime had the best music. The 70s gave intros entire brass sections and the 80s gave intros a pop sensibility. All Urusei Yatsura & Ranma 1/2 OP/EDs are instant classics.

Airmaster OP
Underrated af series

Gankutsuou OP
This show was great

Macross Plus - Information High
Yoko Kanno went full-on early 90s UK club kid when she composed this

Macross 7 - Holy Lonely Night
Macross 7 has been hated over the years, but it's gold. I mean who wouldn't want to pilot a multi-million dollar Veritech fighter with guitar hero controller.

Parappa OP 1

Polysics - You-You-You

Polysics - Computer Obaachan

Violinist of Hameln OP 2
The other songs were good but while watching anime in the VHS fansub days this song had me shook

Not really that strange compared to marketing elsewhere. Anime is quite popular so slapping your favorite series onto an earphone is just the way to sell them.

I love the art you posted, so I checked the show out. The first episode didn't catch my attention, is it worth hanging in there for the rest?

The music was very nice.

It's fairly formulaic as most episodes end with a giant robot battle but the drama works well with a few Holy Fuck moments popping up. The first episode is an avalanche of exposition. Give the show a little longer to see if it suits you.

The score is by Mina Kubota and it's a favourite.

I'm really big into Macross. The OST soundtracks for all of them are great, especially with Frontier.
The songs in SDFM, Plus, 7 and F are some of my favorites as well.
