Poll Ranks Top Dropped Series of 2012

Top 20 series voters stopped watching after one episode ranked

It’s unfortunate, but it happens to all of us: one episode into an anime we stop and think, “welp, I’m never watching any of THAT ever again.” Sometimes we knowingly walk into a train wreck (I’m looking at you, Cuticle Detective Inaba), and sometimes it’s a surprise. Either way, at some point we’ve all dropped a show after one episode and never looked back.


A Japanese poll ranked the top shows of 2012 that viewers kicked to the curb after one unimpressive episode. Got your rageface ready? Good, because there are some good shows in this list.


Here are the top 20:


1. Say "I Love You"

2. AKB0048
3. Dakara Boku wa, H ga Dekinai
4. Total Eclipse
5. Ebiten
6. To Love-Ru Darkness
7. Nakaimo - My Sister is Among Them!
8. Sword Art Online

9. Horizon On The Middle Of Nowhere Season 2
10. Lupin the Third – The Woman Called Fujiko Mine
11. Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure
12. OniAi
13. Aquarion Evol

14. Highschool DxD
15. Inu x Boku Secret Service
16. Black Rock Shooter
17. K
18. Shinsekai Yori
19. Queens Blade Rebellion
20. Kill Me Baby


The big surprise for me is Sword Art Online. I knew there were people out there who didn’t like it (though it still surprises me), but number eight on the list? Ouch. I’m also pretty fond of Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure and Black Rock Shooter - even if it wasn’t up to the OVA’s standards.


Was one of your favorite shows of 2012 on the list?
