Thread title says it all:

- what is the fastest time you've dropped an anime?

- what anime was it?

- and why did you drop it?


For me, Sengoku Collection, I actually made it a whole 1 ep into the show...and dropped it after I figured that this anime was just plain boring, its not even a harem, what is this I don't even-


seconded.

I get the feeling that most of the people that are saying the animation is poor have watched the show on crunchyroll. I will agree that the show looks like shit in 480p. Actually, it may be the worst looking show I've ever seen in 480p. However, it looks awesome in HD. If you dropped it because it looked blurry and terrible, then I would recommend that you find a fansub somewhere and see if the animation still bothers you. If, on the other hand, you dropped it because you didn't like the art style, characters, story, or the fact that the show is almost all dialogue and a bit of fanservice, then by all means, don't re-watch it. The first time I saw it I remember thinking, "damn this show looks good." When I saw it on Crunchyroll, my thoughts were more "ugghh, I can't do this." I only say this because you could be missing out on a good show if you enjoy character-driven stories, and I feel like the animation quality is actually above par on the HD release. Of course, you may just not like the show, which is understandable.

To those of you that dropped Gintama, I will just say that the series is not well regarded for its comedy. I find it hilarious, but the parts of the show that get people hooked are the more serious, emotional moments. I consider the comedy as just character-building.

Finally, I've dropped quite a few after the first episode, but after "Madoka Magica" I now check reviews for everything mid-season to make sure I'm not missing anything.

Pretty much anything with one episode dropped I pushed myself through the first episode since I don't like having incomplete episodes on my record.

I'd say the fastest I dropped was Seikon no Qwaser, that show is just disgusting way too much fanservice. I watch anime for stories, not fanservice.

Yep, just dropped Aoi Sekai no Chuushin de after 1 episode today, I should've dropped it 10 minutes in but I was holding out on the hope that "it can get better, just wait it out until the end".
NOPE
Nothing changed, wasted ~23 minutes of my time (fanservice and dirty jokes were its only redeeming traits and that wasn't enough to even keep my interest)

If there is any one else that is watching this and continuing to watch this, keep tabs on it for me. If it gets significantly better after the 1st ep, I might pick it up again.

Sister Princess.
Dropped after 5 episodes.
Didn't really appeal to me despite my friends saying it was awesome...


I got up to episode 10 of Sister Princess before dropping it. Looking back, I don't even know what the hell I was thinking.

Right now, I'd rather be a pick-up artist than a total otaku. I still watch anime, just not as much as I used to.

Medaka Box.... dropped within 2 episodes... I thought there was something really off about it since I believed it to be a student council comedy but it wasn't very good for that type of show. Then I read somewhere that it turns into a fighting anime so I dropped it when I read that.

1) Hiiro no Kakera (after 10 mins).....I already have problems with most harems much more with reverse harems where I cant seem to like the female lead the guys are all surrounding.
2)Anohana (5 mins)....Its a sweet story and all (probably ) But I really hate the ghost girl....it was just not meant to be.
3) Guin Saga...an episode---I found the first episode interesting but I cant seem to be able to click next for the second one
sudden loss of interest?????

About 1.5 to 2 seconds. I was walking around the store with the Naruto: Will of Fire DVD when I absentmindedly dropped it. I was freaking out because I thought I broke the disc, but I just picked it up and replaced it with another one. It's whoever bought that dvd's problem now.

Oh. Wait. You mean how the fastest I stopped watching an anime? I don't remember. :\
