If we treat both equally as good, there is more bias towards OPs.

Let's say half the people skip the OP, those who do, will probably skip the ED as well.

The other half who watch the OP for various reasons (because it's only a mere 1minute long, it's catchy, at least once, etc) don't HAVE to watch the ED, like how some people leave a movie theatre without finishing the ending credits. Numerically, EDs are already at a disadvantage.

And well, as most have mentioned, it really depends on the song...

Honestly, there should've been an option for "both". (I just went, eehhhh, and chose "OP" for the heck of it.)

There are times where I like both OPs and EDs. Sometimes, ED is better than the OP, and other times, the OP is better than the ED. However, there are a lot of times where I came to love both OP and EDs.

I have no idea. I tend to download anime related songs without ever even watching said anime.
The opening songs tend to be more upbeat, while the ending ones are more nostalgic and melancholy. That's only based on the few anime I've watched. The ending songs tend to evoke more emotion from me, while ...

I agree with nightswan, but like most people to me it's more important if i like the song than if it is an op or ed

I know OPs tend to make more impact, but it just so happens that the songs I really like are the EDs:

Kimi no Shiranai Monogatarifrom Bakemonogatari by supercell
Brave Song from Angel Beats! by Tada Aoi
Secret Base from AnoHana by ZONE

Maybe consider the insert song option?
ä¸çªã®å® ç© ãYui final ver.ã ...

Wow it seems you got the same taste as me xD

I still voted for OP though since EXCEPT from these OPs tend to sound better for me biggrin

Also I cannot understand people who skip the OPs/EDs. I'm the type that watches animes for the OP/ED alone if the rest doesn't annoy me too much wink

I know this is pretty late, but totally couldn't help procrastinating lol. bigrazz

Although I don't watch much anime compared to reading manga, I LOVE watching anime OP and ED. Sometimes, I end up checking out almost all the new anime season's OP and ED at least once just for fun. I actually love OPs and EDs equally, but tend to watch OPs more often since they tend to be more 'action-y', whereas EDs tend to be more 'slow.'
I have a crappy memory so these are just some of my favourites off the top of my head:

Animation and Song-wise:
The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya OP1 'Bouken Desho Desho?' and ED1 'Hare Hare Yukai/Full' (Yes, I'm biased lol xd)
Lucky Star OP 'Motteke! Sailor Fuku' (I just can't resist dance OP/EDs haha)
Bakemonogatari ED 'Kimi no Shiranai Monogatari' (Because it's Supercell <3)
OreImo OP 'Irony/True End' (I just love the animation and also when I became a fan of ClariS ;D)
MariaHolic ED1 'Kimi Ni Mune Kyun' (Because SHAFT always makes the most creative and unique OP/EDs xD)
Soredemo Machi wa Mawatteiru OP 'DOWN TOWN' (You have to turn up the volume a bit for this, but also by SHAFT)
ef: a tale of memories OP 'euphoric field' and ef: a tale of melodies OP 'ebullient future' (I just love the use and choice of art)
Guilty Crown OP1 'My Dearest' and OP2 'The Everlasting Guilty Crown' (Despite what everybody said about the actual series' story, the animation and music is still top-notch IMO)
Rozen Maiden Traumend OP 'Sei Shojo Ryoiki' (I just can't resist gothic lolita stuff~)
Eureka 7 OP3 'Taiyou no Mannaka he' (Not actually my favourite E7 OP since all of them all good, but probably the one with the most touching story?) and OP4 'Sakura'
Moyashimon OP 'Curriculum' (So much cuteness! x3)
Macross Frontier OP2 'Lion' (I actually love anytime Ranka and Sheryl do duets~) and OP special 'Seikan Hikou' (Kira~ Too cute <3)
CLANNAD ED1 'Dango Daikazoku' (Also too much cuteness, but I actually like the guitar version better)
K-ON! OP 'Cagayake! GIRLS' and ED 'Don't say ''lazy''' (Truth be told, I don't really them music-wise, but I liked the animation)
Nichijou OP 'Hyadain no Kakakata kataomoi-C (I actually only found this through a Madoka Magica parody lol)
Paprika OP 'Mediational Field' (Love both the music and animation! ;d)

Song-wise Only:
Gunslinger Girl: Il Teatrino OP 'Tatta Hitotsu no Omoi' (Reason I became a fan of KOKIA <3)
Shakugan no Shana OP1 'Hishoku no Sora'
Kami-sama no Memo-cho OP 'Kawaru Mirai' (Gotta love Choucho's voice! One of my favourite utaites! xD)
BTOOOM! OP 'No Pain, No Game' (Another one of my favourite utaites, I just love her English~)
Binbougami ga! OP 'Make My Day' (One of my favourite genderbending utaites! Could you believe this was sung by a guy? xd)

Also, just for nostalgia's sake laugh

(Wow, this ended up way longer than I planned. Heck tbh, I haven't even seen half these shows lol (屮´Д`);屮)
