paranoia agent this series I really never gotten into I watched all the way to episode 6 to see if the series will turn out to be good but no it just became even more lame. It's been about 7 yrs since I've this series. I'll probably go back this time to watch the entire series cause I really hate leaving an anime series unfinished.

Hmmmmm, I only really dropped Shaman King, after the first episode. It was boring and I enjoyed the manga way more. I think I'm close to dropping GinTama, even though it's one of my all time favorite anime. I just started watching too many anime and reading manga alot so I can't keep up, I hope I don't end up dropping it tho. I also dropped the Naruto spinoff, Rock Lee spring time of youth blah blah blah, it was decent, okay for laughs, but since it's episodic and has no real plot, I got tired after a while... And I hate the fact that Orochimaru is the main villain in it, its really annoying

Tenjho tenge for me... It's not bad ,it's just.... well how do i put this? It kinda lacks story and is just about fighting and ecchi. plus, it's kinda.. boring.

Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Monsters, My god

I got through 140 episodes of it, took a break from it and never returned to it. I won't say it is the worst series ever BUT IT SHOULD NOT BE 200+ EPISODES LONG.

I really have no idea what people see in it other than nostalgia, because it's mostly just dull, predictable Shounen tournament fighting, that loses any dynamic action it has because it is turn based.

The abridged series is good though

Rozen Maiden (2013)
I just couldn't get into it. I was totally lost after the first episode. I'm not sure if I had to had knowledge of the first series/(Seasons?) to know what the hell was going on

Update
Thanks to suikojay, I dropped the show I was currently watching and turned my attention towards the second episode of the series. Because of his reply, I'm happy to say that I'm now excited to see how this plays out.

(Note: I tend to drop a series if I felt that A.) There was no good plot or B.) I was totally lost, but that's rare for me to drop a series on the first episode unless it really fucked with my head in the bad way.)

Amnesia. Omg, I wasn't able to continue this anime after watching 8 episodes, the plot was so annoying. I also might drop Majestic Prince soon. I've watched 6 episodes so far, and haven't been able to watch anymore because of it's annoying characters and plot.

I have only ever dropped Saint Seiya Omega after Ep.60
(too many reasons to say but mainly the new arc and the Steel Saints)

and the other was Shin Sekai Yori (From the New World), literally dropped in the middle of Ep.9
(I've never seen Amnesia but I feel like this would be the pace)

Attack on Titan about seven episodes in. The story and characters are just terrible.

Heaven's Lost Property, I think, was the last series I dropped. I got thru the 1st 4 eps of it, but it just seemed a bit too ecchi for my tastes.

Nah, u didn't need to see the original seasons since they were their own original stories. And this new RM series took all 8 volumes of the 1st manga series and condensed it into that 1st ep, which is why it all seemed so rushed. They basically were trying to show in that 1st ep how things got bad (in the 1st manga series). And the 2nd ep is where it really starts the 2nd manga series, with older Jun, from another alternate universe in which he never had the Shinku doll when he was a kid. And as it says in the synopsis of the show, these 2 worlds (with the young Jun from the 1st manga series and the older Jun from another universe) that were never meant to meet, will meet.
Personally, I'm Iovin' the show so far. I guess it helps, though, that I've already grown to love the characters from having already seen the original anime series a long time ago. xD

how can you have dropped HLP? Funis dub is absolutely hilarious. It'd be understandable if you watched a fansub since most subbers take translations too literally and end up compromising accuracy for good dialogue. (I.E BAD JOKES)

Shin Sekai Yori (From the New World)

I didn't give up on this one so much as I had to take a break from it because it is very depressing in places. You have these good kids that keep having all this bad stuff happen to them due to the world they live in. A lot is caused by the adults, but you aren't really able to really hate them because you learn why they do what they do and you can even understand why. So there is no evil plot or bad guy to blame for what's happening. It left me feeling sad cause it reminded me of hoe there are some messed up things that just happen and they aren't anyone's fault. Life just sucks!

I would disagree with you and I mention it cause I have always thought that it's story and characters are it's strong points because that artwork and character design aren't very good. I've read some of the manga and its not any better there. I just gotta wonder if I'm the only one that has noticed how badly drawn Attack on Titan can be.
