Ever seen that anime that had a great pilot episode (or first few episodes), but just couldn't maintain your prior level of interest for the rest of the trip?

What are some examples that you can think of?

I'm not sure how many more episodes it'll have, but I have to say that Galilei Donna was quite interesting when it started but now it's just boring.

Too many to count. One of my sayings is: "It's hard to finish", because so many animes have trouble bringing a good story home. At the top of the list would be Soul Eater, Air Master, Trinity Blood and Petopeto-San, just off the top of my head.

Guilty Crown, it had a great first episode but the anime just went nowhere and things happened with no explanation. I ended up forcing myself through to the end, and it wasn't a satisfactory end....

First one that came to my mind as well. The first few episodes were actually faithful to the manga and then later decided to take the anime filler route with blend plot and characterization that made almost no sense.

For me, Kotoura-san from the Winter lineup. Great start from the beginning but later deviated into shit that was unremarkable.

first thought as Drrr! but it was really only one part of the ending, not the ending as a whole. So.. idk, all those animes that were cut short bc they got too far ahead in manga or w/e, like soul eater and ao no exorcist ... others i suppose..

I was in the mood for a nice Romance anime one day so I started Ai Yori Aoshi. It had a great first couple of episodes but then it had a sudden change in tone and turned into a really mediocre harem. I ended up dropping it, which is a fairly rare occurrence for me.

Definitely. Kotoura-san also had a touching and dramatic start but it devolved into a rom-com (which isn't really that bad imo).

I feel like I'd like to punch those who say Angel Beats or Guilty Crown here. I can get people either love or hate these, but don't go saying they got worse after the first episode. That's just not true.
