1. If the story is stupid
2. If I suddenly find something better to do
3. If the artwork is bad / not what I like
4. If the manga is full of clichés
5. If the manga keeps repeating the same things all over

1. lack of katakana sfx or background. i like how it makes the manga feel alive and plus learning simple japanese is a huge plus for me. <3
2. constant flashbacks as if past is the main plot. it becomes even more confusing, especially if there wasn't aging in these characters.
3. heterosexual love. BLEH, i can find that anywhere. yaoi/yuri is not required but a plus <3
4. obviously if the manga's boring, I'll stop. school stuff related is so repetitive for me.
5. mangas too expensive or difficult to get. I don't shop much online unforunately. usually online shopping is my last retort.

k, i was just reading 'hot gimmick' right now, and i was so pissed off with it!! nothing turned out like i wanted it too! DX the main characters boyfriend was such a masculating jerk who didnt know how to act human. and the person i was rooting for she rejected and since he said he couldnt love anyone else, he became a priest. A PRIESTt omg, *grumble, grumble* dammit, dumb girl.
but anyways, top 5 reasons are:
1. if the heroine is too annoying (even for shojo standards)
2. if the plot is going the ABSOLUTE wrong way
3. if heroines boyfriend is too annoying (you keep thinking, "if i was that persons girlfriend, i would punch him in the face for talking to me like that....")
4. i know this is supposed to be how why you stopped reading it but yeah, the ending was annoying too.
5. poor rejectee! T_T

could go on but control! have to have controll. you only have to do five. anyways, so depressed about the priest thing.. hes never going to marry, hes gonna shave his head, and hes going to live up in the mountains or whatever?! talk about drastic
i know this was kinda focusing on one manga, but if i come across another manga like this, im definitely dropping it like its hot

usually i never really drop a manga. i just put it on hold and read it later when im done with the mangas i am reading

though there r those rare time where i drop it due to i hate the artwork or i just cant get into it

1. yaoi
2. almost nonexistant plot development.
3. going on haitus for long periods
4. would say crappy ending, but by the time you reach the end it's too late to drop it.
5. yaoi harem >.>

I can read a lot of godawful manga, but yaoi just doesn't do it for me. Except for eerie queerie. that 1 was pretty funny.

5. When characters seem to have the same personalities. Ex: Person #1 is bloodthirsty, and he dies only to have Person #34 just as the same...Seriously...not everyone's a freak of nature that has to brutally massacre everything....
4. When the main character is a bit to stupid. Ex: Unable to see that a female character is crushing on them, or if they're completely incompetent at learning from their mistakes in fighting sequences.
3. Female characters that are whiny and cry about everything. Hell, even the ones that make the main character always worry about them and have to protect them. Seriously, gtfo of the area when people are fighting. 'Nuff said.
2. Storylines that tend to have the Dragon Ball Z effect. Turmoil -> Fight = Peace. Wait! Oh no, another bad guy! DUN DUN DUN! Rinse and repeat. Just because a series ends soon doesn't make it a bad one.
1. *drum roll* Bad guys that have the ulterior motive of world domination, the obliteration of said world, or the combination of the two, or the ones that just say, "I did it for the LULS!" /sigh


Yeah, I'm not too crazy about the Dragonball effect; at one point while watching Naruto, I was almost put off with the fillers doing that dumb shit...but for some reason I stuck by it, KNOWING it was gonna get better, which it did...nowadays, my main focus is on Naruto, esp. with having a baby now that runs around all over, so that's the one series that I can read/watch. To try and do more just makes it harder, and I hardly even buy manga anymore for that reason...just easier to do a quick read online, and there you go...there's other stuff, like Berserk (anyone notice that vol. 34 isn't ot yet?), the only exception...and YES I HATE the dumbass characters!

yeah, it was the adopted brother.. i guess she couldnt have hooked up with a guy she has thought of as her brother for such a long time, but i was mad she hooked back up with the jerk. *sigh* but i guess thats the fate of all shojo mangas...
