Have you ever judged an anime too quickly?

When I was watching Steins;Gate, I lost interest after watching the 2nd episode. Then later that year, my friend and I made a deal that we would each recommend each other an anime that we would have to watch. He recommended Steins;Gate, and I fell in love with it. It now holds as my favorite anime. MY recommendation was erm.. well let's just say it wasn't a good choice.

Yes, I have even stopped watching anime just because I did not like how the characters were drawn.
For instance I absolutely hated the way the characters were drawn in peach girl!
But after some time,I got really bored and gave it a shot. LOVED IT. Same thing happened with Durarara, I get you. : P

when Full Metal Alchemist first came out and it was in every issue of Newtype USA
I assumed it was just another kiddy shounen thing and ignored it (I was watching 6 other shows too though...)

When Adult Swim picked up, I wanted to know why, so i checked it out(other than Inu Yasha and Bleach, they have a good track record)

I found out in the first 6 minutes of episode one. I was hooked.

It became one of my favorite series. . .and then Brotherhood came out.

I had some real trouble getting into High School Of The Dead. I watched a couple episodes, then went for a little while without watching it again. Then just kinda said "Ah hell let's give another shot" lol

When I first started watching Another, I thought it was really boring and I couldn't understand the storyline from the first few episodes. But then I continued to watch it and it turned out really awesome. I loved that anime ^.^

I thought Durarara was going to be amazing based upon the first few eps, but I never dropped an anime so fast once I got to episode 12(I think?)


I judged One Piece without even seeing it because I associated it with Naruto and Bleach, which are pretty much everything I hate in anime.

Now its my favourite anime along with Gintama

Magi - the description seemed boring and the name choices made it seem unoriginal, but it's really good.

I love Durarara, but some episodes deserve to be skipped. I just wished they would translate the novels. I read 9 but only have a vague description of what happened in 7 or 8.

Watched Anohana when it came out. Quite disliked Menma, and figured since the story was about her, It might be good to just cut my losses. Then a wave a good reviews and high praise came in, and I figured I'd give it another shot. Glad I did.

Done it once with Katekyoshi Hitman REBORN!, needless to say that i picked it up pretty fast again afterwards ^^

So not really no, even with the animes that i've stopped watching like Elfen Lied, it wasn't because i judged it too fast, simply just not my genre

I have watched the first three eps of TTGL at least 4 times and I never get past that. Guess it's just not for me.
