Watamote

Maybe I just didn't get the humor but it never clicked with me and so I moved on.

Didn't click with me either. I keep thinking it's going to get better, but my hopes are slowly fading.

Daybreak Illusion. It's pacing and characters are kind of annoying.

Gintama, the serious moments are too few. It's like a giant fan service anime that parodies itself. And while I'd usually be down to watch something like that, not 300 damn episodes of it!

<edit> Fine! I'm giving gintama another chance! *throws hands in air* pfft, pfffffft,...

Shows I've given up on this season
Fantasista Dolls
The Eccentric Family


The first should be obvious with a quick watch of the first episode. It's nonsense, the pacing is just twitch-worthy, saw no value from wasting my time with it. I watched the first 3 of Eccentric Family, but I just can't shake the fact that I find myself so utterly bored watching it. There's no real clear focus that I can surmise and there's not even any good humor to fill the gaps between the tame, and completely un-fulfilling plot points. I just don't see the attraction that this show has aside from maybe its art style? Didn't save it for me.

Shows that are in that awkward "Eh maybe I'll catch up on it later" state
Gatchaman Crowds
Silver Spoon


Despite its fantastical concept the first two episodes of Gatchaman just didn't hook me yet. The female lead is kind of funny in how she speaks in the most slurrish japanese ever, and is so bubbly. Haruhi as the voice of the panda is kind of fun too, but I don't know why I just don't feel excited to watch this show. Silver spoon seems like a show that I would like, and fear of it being boring has prevented me from continuing with it lately. That's probably next for me to get caught up on...we'll see.

Shows that are okay but I question if it's worth continuing
Watamote
Going Home Club


Watamote is sort of painful, and the leering knowledge of knowing that pretty much she is eternally f*'d throughout any content we're going to see through out the anime sort of kills my motivation a little bit since you know, I actually like character development. Going Home Club is just kinda...average. It's way too typical and the humor is just too slappy for anime in these times. It's mostly a lot of yelling from the MC at her friends bad jokes.

Trust me, watch a Certain Magical Index, I know the first episodes are kinda meh but the series is REALLY WORTH IT and I loved it so much, I just don't want to see someone else pass on this series. I think I've done the same mistake with Darker then Black, people say it's awesome as hell but the first episodes bore me to death so I gave up, meh.

Darker than Black. Just felt it wasn't progressing fast enough for me. It got boring halfway through.

I've watched the whole first season of Darker than Black. I fully regret it.

The show I'm closest to giving up on right now is Sword Art Online. Currently I'm seven episodes in and it isn't quite what I expected.

There are so many that I can't choose! XD I lose interest easily so I rarely ever finish a whole series, but when I do I never regret it. The ones that come to mind are one piece, naruto shippuden. One piece has sooo many episodes, but a lot of fillers so I kind of just lost interest, but maybe one day I'll finish. XD Naruto Shippuden just never interested me

For this season of the shows i watched so far i only dropped Sunday Without God. It's just boring to me and i get frustrated easily with shows where the main character is really dumb. She's also a really dumb loli magical girl character so it loses points. This is a very thinly veiled magical girl anime pretending to be something clever. I didn't find it clever. I dislike the character designs and the story itself is just silly to me. Tried 2 episodes and saw no reason to go on.


Before that the only show i dropped was Shin Sekai Yori. I REALLY wanted to like this show. I like the artwork and the soundtrack is fantastic. Watched 10 or 11 episodes really wanted to get into it but in the end i got really tired of the weird for the sake of being weird and the pretentious writing. The writer of this show obviously thinks he is more clever than he is. I watch a lot of shows like this. I'm a big fan of Serial Experiments: Lain, Texhnolyze and Ergo Proxy. This show however just didn't grab me and even after i waited for it to do something interesting it didn't For me it's just a big shame because the show had so much potential but didn't deliver a real deep and artistic experience like other shows have.

After episode 3 Sword Art Online stops being what you expected and turns into a generic boy meets girl anime. And oh god season 2 XD. That will be a nice surprise for you.

After the recap episode of Attack on Titan, I got impatient and decided to read all of the manga. I (kind of) dropped the anime, at least for the next couple of episodes, because I know that they'll be somewhat slow ones. I just hope they can get the next big fight right.

Special A and I gave up because the art style was awful as well as the story-line of the show itself
