Sword Art Online, the first two episodes were promising, the next 6 episodes were filler, they time skipped two years ahead by episode 8, the Yui plot line was dull and even kind of creepy, the next two episodes were rushed and anticlimactic, and the first 3 episodes of the Alfheim storyline was where i finally said enough was enough


The episodes that you call filler were sidestories the author did after he finished the SAO arc to flesh it out more.


why would he flesh it out with characters that we only see once, and stories that for the most part, have no real substance, he should have used those episodes to actually flesh out Kirito and Asuka's relationship


You see some of them more than once.


ok you see Lisbeth for like 2 seconds in another episode and flashbacks of the Black Cats, and the rest of them you see quick peeks of while SAO is falling apart but they had no real point other than to introduce girls that fall for Kirito for no reason other than to make Kirito look cool and add more pointless wish fufillment to the show

This season I dropped Maoyu and Tamako Market after 8 episodes, after being super hyped for both, but they're just boring in my opinion.


I agree with Maoyu. I really wanted to like that show, but it just lacks suspense. I get what they're trying to do, but the main characters aren't being challenged enough. Yes, it's interesting how introducing the potato crop can change world politics, but that plot thread needs to head somewhere a little more visceral to make the show engaging, as an example.

Eyeshield 21.
Sword Art Online.
Shugo Chara (for good reasons )
Blast of Tempest.
Sket Dance.

All boring in my opinion, except Shugo Chara since it's just not my type of anime.

I had high hopes for HEROMAN, but it wasn't that cool. I also got really tired of hearing the protagonist scream HIIIIIIIROOOOOOMAAAAAAAN! I got about 11 eps in before I dropped it. I really don't like dropping series, so it took me a while after I got annoyed to actually give up on it.

I really liked Ai Yori Aoshi for the first two episodes, but then it turned from a really nice romantic comedy with an interesting premise to a really generic harem. Not that I hate harems, but I don't like something to turn into one unexpectedly when it had such a strong start.

Maoyu gave up on episode 1
Sasami: Magical Girls Club gave up somewhere in the middle. Too childish for me
Princess Tutu I might get back on that one, but gave up around episode 10
Full Moon wo Sagashite I might get back on this one too; gave up on episode 4
Tari Tari It didn't seem to hold my interest; gave up on episode 3
Chihayafuru I like the art so I might try it again; gave up on episode 12
Full Metal Panic gave up around episode 8

I tried Tamako Market, and manage to make it pass 7 episodes (I think) before dropping it. It was too boring for me. I must admit, the little talking bird was kind of funny, but like I said, it got boring after awhile.

Problem Children Are coming from Another World, aren't they: dropped the first time after suffering through Episode 1. Re-watched today episodes 2-5 after ANN reviewer praised the content. Still lame imho. The lead male protagonist is perfect. When the Rapture occurs and the 2nd Coming starring Jesus Christ appears no doubt the Entity will be a clone of the blond headed male hero from this show. You would derive more entertainment watching a Jim Jarmusch directed show Down By Law (1986) on Hulu presently airing.

Bodacious Space Pirate
s should be re-named Smart Tarts with Charts: Dropped 4 different times in spite of praises from ANN reviewers. Plot line similar to detail of Space Brothers: heavy on personality, bonding, friendships in simulated circumstances. Action content infrequent.

Gj-bu - watched to episode 6 , funny show ,plus voice acting is so cute.. but then feel kinda tired that the show has no plot ..

NARUTO Spin-Off: Rock Lee & His Ninja Pals - Really enjoy this at first .. It's hilarious. Just, don't like that they make cool characters doing stupid things .

Arcana Familia, when they spent half an episode looking for a cat, I stood up, threw my arms in the air and yelled "Done!" Amnesia would be another one, didn't like the protagonist.
