Until this season I've mostly been forcing myself to watch more than one episode of whatever I decide to try, but I'm getting to the point where I'm no longer going to do that just to say I gave it that valiant try.

I think I actually did watch only one episode of Ouran High School. It wasn't so much the pink (though I do find too much pink a little sickening) as that the whole obsequious host thing makes me wrinkle up my nose and want to retch a little. How that's supposed to be somehow sexy and appealing to women/girls is beyond me.

Show I actually did drop after only 1 episode: Teekyu. It just seemed spastic and stupid and made me shudder.

A couple of shows from last season that I wished I'd dropped after the first five minutes (I forced myself to watch the second and possibly third episodes):
Hyperdimension Neptunia: high squeaky voices--lots of them--all the time; now I know this is a strong repulsive feature for me
Brothers Conflict: similar reasons to Ouran High School. The guys are obnoxious, not sexy, and the heroine's a bland wuss, and I knew this well before the first episode ended.

Hmmm...

The only one I can think of at the moment is Unbreakable Machine Doll

The plot was just cliche anime bull'

"You killed my family! Now I'll become the most OP character in the show and defeat YOOOUUUUUUUUU!!!"

That's what I got from the first episode

....No thank you

Wanna be the Strongest in the World

I literally was so shocked at 5 seconds in that I was dumbfounded the whole way through. I cringed at certain parts because it was so crazy (crazy for me). Lorreen though convinced me to watch the second episode and I will admit that was a lot more interesting plot wise (no, we're not talking about "PLOT").

I've found that maybe it isn't best to quite jump the gun with a first episode impression because I would have not even bothered with watching the next one had it not been for someone vouching that it was a little better...

Vampire knight guilty. The only reason I finished vampire knight was because of the opening song. After awhile, the show gets boring.

What about it made you not want to watch any more episodes? (and did you in fact not watch any more episodes?)

I don't think I've ever actually dropped an anime. I'm trying to get into doing anime reviews, so I think it would be kinda lame if I only reviewed ones I liked. My anime queue is up to 175 series right now though, so I'm guessing one will be gone eventually...

Brave 10, it was just so stereotypical. I was bored after 10 minutes.

Campione from a couple of seasons ago. I don't remember exactly why, but I remember thinking after the first episode ended "This is everything that I hate" and gave it up lol

There are a few from this season, actually, which I watched one episode all the way through and said almost the same thing. Namely:
Wana be the Strongest in the World
I, Who Couldn't Become a Hero, Reluctantly Decided to Get a Job
Meganebu - Just too weird in art and characters. One of the rare slice of life's I found boring. NOT because it was all guys! Kimi to Boku and Daily Lives of High School Boys proved that can be done well.

I would love to add Walkure Romanze and Arpeggio of Blue Steel, but sadly, I couldn't even get through a whole episode on those two.

I stopped at episode 14. I was like, "this is nonsense. They're going to show up, then leave. Show up, then leave."
Fight already. Amongst each other. Triple threat. Four way match. Forget the caster.


Rider won't stop talking how to conquer stuff or how to behave as a conqueror.

You know what, Rider. Spoiler alert. You died.




If I did not see a youtube clip of overpowered anime characters, where Gilgamesh dominated Rider, I would totally not even going to watch pass episode 10.

So, I'm in a break and watching something else.
