Escaflowne because I was watching it dubbed for some reason. i got to the part where Amano says (in the creepiest voice EVER) "Stay in bed" and I had to quit that anime. I've since watched a couple of eps subbed, but it just seems really dated, and I don't adore the art, though its not terrible.

I normally read into the anime before I end up watching so I won't even watch it if it doesn't sound interesting. I have dropped Gintama though, I watched a few episodes and frankly, I didn't find it all that appealing as most people do.

Ao no Exorcist - Dropped it in 30 seconds. Not sure why, maybe I was completely freaked out by priests bleeding from their eyes due to the ritual they were doing.

I think the fastest series I've ever dropped was Xenosaga: The Animation - I couldn't even finish the 1st ep. It was several years ago though and I can't even remember anymore the reasoning why I dropped it...

Gintama - How the **ck did this get so popular? I mean it sucked! Oh and took me like 5 or less min. to realize it.

Yeah, I just watched the 1st ep today and already I wanted to drop it since I didn't think it was really funny. But I managed to get thru to ep 11, since people were saying that it gets better and "epic." But after 11 episodes, I realized that even when the plot for each episode tries to get serious, I had a difficult time taking things seriously (or getting immersed into the story), and I think it's because all the characters seem overly eccentric.

Chrono Crusade ... the whiny religious aspect drove me away just past the 5 minute mark when it was clear the main character was incompetent

Gintama .. actually dropped this 3 separate times. First time right after intro thinking "wow this is dumb", came back to it because it's so hugely popular .. made it through episode one thinking "wow this is still pretty dumb", and the third time after episode 4 ... "yup this is still dumb, I'm out"

GIRLS und PANZER ... seriously just seemed like an anime for those with a lolita complex ...

Shin Sekai Yori ... bounces around worse than a ping pong ball

Ixion Saga ... seemed interesting at first then I was like ... "boy was I wrong"

Every Naruto/Bleach filler .... I just wait for the main arcs to come back and go ... "oh here we go, I'll read what I missed later summarized via a wiki"

I have never really dropped an anime early, only placed them on hold and then finished it, and hated myself for it, but eh. Some I still have on hold though.

My current ones on hold are Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere, until I can get the uncensored version, since the version here has the distracting white light censorship. Finished the first episode, in hopes that it wouldn't get worse. It did in the second, at least for me, and so, back burner for you.

Rideback, though I made it 3 episodes in. Just stopped being fun to watch.

The original Devil Man series, simply because of the art, but that is one I just need to be in the mood for and I will sit and watch it all in one sitting.

Heaven's Lost Property. It just didn't keep my attention.

I try not to drop anime but probably Bakugan. I tried it for about 16 minutes and walked out of the room so I never finished it. Strange but true.
