Have you ever judged an anime too quickly?

I thought I wouldn`t like it since the first ep was very boring, the second ep was quite exciting.

I watch usually 5-7 episode of a anime before deciding to give up or not

Yes I always judge anime, but I also know it does not mean I am correct at first. got many on hold that I will watch at a later time

I know from experience that many anime might seem boring at the start, too corny, too echhi, or too much of one thing at the start of it
then turn around to something beyond expected.
It is not until you have seen a lot of episodes you can see how deep it is(or isn't)
Like anything else the first episode is a promotion, it will give you a taste, mostly the style of it, a character or two, a premiss of something leading to the story

Eureka seven, was kinda of blah throughout the first 10 episodes. Then wow, that thing took off around episode 13. I couldnt wait to finish it because it would increase my sleep by an hour a night. couldnt turn it off.

I've gotta say, Highschool DxD, I kind of assumed it was going to be exploitation trash (which is okay on its own, don't get me wrong!), but it's turned out to be more interesting (and more importantly engaging) than almost everything this season, including all of the ongoing serials.

It's actually my second favorite show currently streaming (after Natsume, which is like the absolute opposite in every way)

Samurai Champloo, i remember seeing it on Adult Swim & it looked retarded to me.
Then I actually decided to read what it was about, seemed interesting, then I watched it.
Finished it in 2 days because I was so into it & it's one of my favorite anime :D
Oh, & Ouran High School Host Club. Dropped it after 2 episodes, came back to it after 2 years..
LOVED IT. ^.^

I did this once when I first saw Puella Magi Madoka Magica...

I didn't like the drawing, but then when I saw the fight scenes...Well, got addicted

Never.

I judge anime pretty well without giving it a try.

I also have a policy of finishing what I started no matter how amazingly unbearable it is.

Alot of animes for me, actually. I always judge animes that start slow too quickly. :/

I thought Kemonozume was trying to be hyper stylistic action, similar to other Madhouse works. Simply put I thought it was style over substance, but it turns out it was a beautiful tale of life, love, and most importantly, what it means to be human.

Blood+ was boring as all-get-out over the first 25 episodes. It was almost excruciating. But for some reason, after episode 26, it just became unbelievably engaging.

If I had simply stopped watching after the first few blargh episodes, I never would have gotten to see that badassness through to the end.

Code Geass...Because my brother swore it was EVERYTHING I loved in anime, I would go crazy over it. Resisted for over 3 years and finally caved this month.

It's my 3rd favorite anime now

Edit: But to be fair I didn't watch none of it and was hooked in the first 10 minutes...So maybe I didn't judge it afterall

Yes. But the other way around. I saw the first 9 minutes of Elfen Lied and figured it would be the best thing I've ever watched. 10 minutes later I was ready to shoot myself. Worst anime I've ever watched.
