Well there isn't one that I haven't started, but there are a couple here I couldn't start to get into.

These have arguably the worst start of any anime that are considered the best of its kind:

Bakemonogatari. That's the first one in the series right? Dropped it after the 4th episode

Gintama: Dropped it after hearing you need to watch 50!!! episodes to get into it. That's insanity and perpetual torture for anyone who just wants to watch an anime.

Steins;Gate: I dropped it at first. But I'm really glad I came back to it after. It really picked up after the 7th episode for me and became a very solid anime. Worth the praise.

Code Geass: It wasn't that this show had a slow start for its time. It was because I didn't start watching it until recently instead of when it first came out. By now a lot of Anime in its Genre have bypassed it in shocking first start (Valvrave.) The animation standards have really gotten outdated by today's standards.

SoA - Stopped after the first episode. I played MMO's a lot and found the concept really cheesy and too unrealistic to suspend any disbelief.


SAO too cheesy and unrealistic? Of all the things that happen in anime a VR game based on fighting monsters and leveling up is too unrealistic?


I was a hardcore WoW and Everquest player when I was younger. SAO (I'm guessing Log Horizon and other in its genre too) just looks way to idealized to what I remember in MMORPGs. It's like a pop version to make pretty of every thing that was rather ugly.



Ahh so you don't like how the monsters and things don't look very "monster-like"

I was just trying to figure out where you drew the line on unrealistic for anime :P
But I get it was a special case.

For me it's Death Note. I've heard it was a very good anime, but I've never come to watch it. Maybe because I watched the real life version already iunno.

I have trouble starting Neon Genesis Evangelion. I guess because it has become such a big part of anime culture now that I feel like half of it has been spoiled for me without even seeing it. Maybe one day

Clannad After Story. I didn't like the canon ending for Clannad. I much prefered the
but since the story doesn't continue from there, I haven't felt any reason to go watch After Story.

That's a shame. The second season is one of the best works ever known to mankind. :lol:

It really is much much better than season 1.

Ghost Hunt. Got really into the first 3 episodes until they figured out that
than got pissed assuming the whole show is going to be like that. I'll get to it eventually.


Same! I felt like I wasted three entire episodes to...


And... I've been holding back on watching Naruto. Being so busy, I just want something I can finish for the most part instead of being 350+ episodes behind.

Let's see, there are a ton of shows that fit that bill that I want to see, but can't get to. But on the top of my list I will go with Saki. I have been meaning to watch it someday, but never found the willpower to do so watching girls go out to play mahjong.

Clannad, I get told its good but at the same time I get told I probably won't like it so with conflicted opinions i can't really get myself into the mood to watch it.
