Reborn.

I hear it gets really good later on and I just to have to make it through the first 70 episodes, but that's so far away when I'm on episode 6 and trying to get through an episode of it is like trying to power through eating a bowl of diarrhea. Someone else's diarrhea. Someone who ate diarrhea and is now evacuating that diarrhea from their rectum for you to eat. Two generations of someone else's diarrhea.

I-pin the Gas Assassin? Really? Get out of here with that robust, skunk-juice infused maggotry.

The real mystery to me is, if the first 70 episodes are full of that nonsense, how did it ever make it to episode 70 to begin with? And why would people subject themselves to such a senseless abomination for so long? Is it a test of endurance? "Watch 70 episodes of this anime, or we'll kill your mother?" And you just happened to be rewarded with a not-poop anime from 71 and on?

I wish I could get wrapped up in it like everyone else, I wish I could not think of it as the festering juice you find in a full dumpster on a rainy day.

But, I just can't.

Shakugan no Shana
Mobile Suit Gundam
(series 1) I can handle Zeta, Ideon, Votoms, Dougram, Panzer World Galient, but can't stand Gundam series 1.
Coppelion
Spice and Wolf
Arcade Gamer Fubuki
the fanservice made the OVA too cringe-worthy to enjoy. I wish I could point to the OVA series and go "See! Mahjongg and Card Gamers aren't the only mundane thing that's been turned fun to watch by throwing in over-the-top magic nonsense!"

Fate/Zero, I got to ep 21 before I had to drop it.

Evangelion, Seen the movies and Shinji pissed me off so I don't think I could watch the whole series although I want to because alot of people say its a must see.

also the second half of Guilty Crown, I loved the first half (possibly one of my favourites of all anime) but the second half is written so poorly that the good bits get overshadowed by the rest of it.

Madoka Magica...

Yes, yes I know, "give it three episodes, it gets better!"

But I just can't seem to get interested.

Also, I can't stand the animation style.

I mean really...

WHAT IS UP WITH THEIR FACES?!

I get over most of those things fairly quickly, but the ones I really regret that I could've liked better if they were better series were Code Geass and Guilty Crown, who both share the same staff of People That Should Never Be Allowed To Make Another Anime Series Ever Again.

Right now, though, it's definitely Kill la Kill. The action scenes are great, the animation's top notch, and the core story of Ryuko trying to avenge her dad while getting some character development is at the very least serviceable. But the God Mode Sue villain is uninteresting, the comic relief characters are grotesquely unfunny (save for the stripper teacher), the plot is starting to throw Code Geass cliffhangers to mask its lack of depth, and they wasted the perfectly good buildup of the first 10 episodes in the crapfest that is episode 12.

I'm still gonna watch it, but I feel that they really need to clean up a lot of things to make up for all the previous nonsense.

One Piece. I liked Naruto, like Fairy Tail but for some reason I can't get into One Piece. I've tried several times.

So SO so many shows...

Shounen shows like One Piece, Naruto, Bleach... I just can't get into them. I will admit I finished One Piece to the current and Naruto to Shippuden, but I can't watch them anymore, i'm just so tired of them after grinding myself through them.

PMMM, I keep trying but only make it to like episode 3 each time.

Shows like Kill la Kill and Nobunagun... I think it is the art style that makes me grind my teeth though.

Evangelion, being practically considered the religion of Anime it seems, I just can't get into it what so ever. Have tried so many times... given I did finish it eventually it was such a drag...

There is definitely more, but those are good enough for a post.

dragon ball z- Man I heard so many great things about the anime and it probably is the king of all anime. However, I just can't love it. I mean seeing people with super duper big muscles and screaming out their lungs and having super awesome hair that can grow yellow and long and then seeing them fist punching each other at supersonic speed while flying in the air at supersonic speed and shooting out big ass laser beams while screaming their lungs out is just something I can't take serious enough to watch and enjoy

K-On- another anime I heard so much great things about but seeing how it about girls in school in a music band where plot doesn't seem to advance anywhere is just something I can't take serious enough to watch and enjoy.

I don't...really know of any. I just can't think of very many times when I "wanted to love" a show, and that mostly happens when I already know what it'll be like.

There's ridiculously disappointing shows like SAO and Coppelion, but that's not the same thing. I liked the beginnings of those shows, just not the rest of them. Attack on Titan is popular and I understand why, but I don't have any interest in zombie apocalypses, no matter how big the zombies are, so I never tried to force myself to like it.

There's a few things I dismissed because I thought they were garbage, but ended up loving, like Gatchaman Crowds. But I can't remember the reverse ever happening. Maybe I'm too much of a pessimist.

Guilty Crown
I'm not saying it's bad, but it just isn't that great. I've seen the entire show, and it has potential, but I can't really love it.

Attack on Titan
I only watched around ten episodes before I dropped it. Again, it's not bad by any means, it just didnt hook me.
