I Dont Drop anime, Anime Drops me :3! Just Joking! haha..

Like seriously, I feel like crap after dropping a show, so I just carry on watching it. Even if the anime is complete shit, I can't stand dropping a show, (Like Pupa and Mahou Sensou)

Though I did put Log Horizon on hold, its just boring for now, hopefully in the last few episodes it becomes a full out battle war! then ill start to watch it again. Though No Romance in Log Horizon (Even though the ED states that there is?) meh.

Same with log horizon for the same reason
This season its Pupa(To short)
Wizard barristers, and
Super sonico >.>
thinking of dropping both nobunagas for reason they're lossing interest D:

Anyone else dropping/dropped anime this season/last? If so which one?



I drop a lot because I start a lot indiscriminately. If a new show is simulcast on Crunchyroll or Funi, I'll usually watch at least 3 episodes of it, knowing little about it (though sometimes I do stop at 1 or 2 now). I kind of overextended myself with sticking with too many shows during summer, so I drop things more easily now. It was especially easy this Winter though, because there was a lot of stuff that just didn't appeal to me at all!

Some recent drops where it was quite obvious very early on that they had no appeal for me (not a comprehensive list):

Last Season:
Arpeggio of Blue Steel
Log Horizon
Meganebu! (I forgot this even existed until I went back to look up all of what started on CR last season)

This Season:
Soni-Ani
Space Dandy
both the Nobunaga shows


It's come to my attention that there is a somewhat similar thread:

http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-812795/whats-the-last-anime-that-you-gave-up-on-and-why

Since that one seems inclusive of older shows, and this one seems quite focused on just the last couple of seasons, I'm going to keep both going. (I'll rename this one to make the distinction a little more clear).

Nothing! Cause I didn't really follow up on them Watched some Kill La Kill, but decided that I wanted to wait until it is fully released so that I can marathon it!

Dropped:
Nagi No Fish
Strange+
Hamatora
Space Dandy - I dropped this one after the first episode. I can watch the same story done better in Heavy Metal.
Meganbu

Might Drop:
Super Sonico - It's cute. But, there doesn't appear to be any continuing story or development
Maken Ki 2 - It just an entire season of OVAs
Pupa - I think this would have been better with full half hour episodes

Shows dropped last season (that I remember) and their reasons:

Galilei Donna-Couldn't stand all the family drama in a show about treasure hunting sky pirates. (I call it "The most creative show that will bore you to tears")
Walkure Romanze-You, Creators! Pick a girl to focus on! I don't need these girls showing up to interject their plot into each other's stories.

And for this season:

Magical Warfare-That show just revels in it's mediocrity. It's feels like a story I've already seen a hundred times already.
Wizard Barristers-Was hoping for more "legal drama" and less "action stars throw magic at stuff until cases somehow get solved"
Hamatora-I dunno. It just stopped being engaging and entertaining at some point.
Pupa-It's just guro porn with no plot. At this point, it's like they're just trying to see what they can get away with.

Also, I have Hozuki no Reitetsu of indefinite hold. I like it, but I really have to be in the mood to watch it.

I'm pretty surprised that people are dropping Log Horizon like that, it's one of the most epic and awesome series I've watched in quite a while.

Anyways, it's three shows for me. But they're still in my queue so I can't say that I've necessarily "dropped" them yet.

Nagi no Asakura I've only watched the first episode of and I found the premise pretty...weird and kind of boring. Super Sonico I only watched the first episode as I found the main character really irritating with her stupid permanent headphones and hipster lifestyle. And Kill la Kill I've only watched up to episode 3, I kind of liked it but it's so over the top that it wasn't holding my interest as well as some other GAINAX shows have done in the past.

I'll only count things I watched past the first episode and then dropped.

Fall: Coppelion, Hajime no Ippo: Rising, Strike the Blood, Walkure Romanze, Yuusha ni Narenakatta.

Winter: Pupa, in danger: Hamatora, Nisekoi, and Nobunagun.

Chuunibyo demo Koi ga Shitai! Ren would be in danger too but I have to see it through to the end.

heh, it's funny because I dropped it for the opposite reason. I think the show would've done better to pick either one or the other and stick with it. having both just made it kinda blah.

Dropped:

Super Sonico
Pupa
Nobunaga the Fool
Samurai Flamenco

Those shows just didn't interest me a bit. I tried to give them a few episodes, but aside from Flamenco, they were meh from the first episode. Dropped Flamenco after the "Torture" arc.

Dropped:
Recently My Sister Is Unusual
Nobunaga the Fool
The Pilot's Love Song
Soni-Ani: SUPER SONICO THE ANIMATION
Hamatora
Strange+
Hozuki no Reitetsu
Pupa
Onee-chan ga Kita
Magical Warfare
Wake Up, Girls!

Seriously considering dropping:
Nobunagun
Nisekoi

Even with all those drops, my queue stays pretty full. The carry over shows from fall are pretty great still, and there were some good winter additions.
