Was there an anime that you loved, but dropped because of how much one part upset you?

I don't see how it was that contrived when they had established several episodes before (when Mao was introduced) that one would eventually lose control of their Geass. If only Lelouch had kept this in mind and given a more harmless yet equally improbable example.



nah i totally agree that it was really contrived. he just happened to lose control of his geass right as he's making the stupidest remark ever. you'd think if lelouch was as smart as the show tries to portray him he would learn to not make off-hand comments like that after he realized he was losing control of the geass. it felt really cheap.

I havent dropped it yet and it wasnt one episode, but Fairy Tail is on some super thin ice with me. It has rapidly gone the way of Kenshin and Inuyasha. By that I mean this......CHARACTER FREEKIN DEVELOPEMENT! examples follow im around ep 150 at this point. I just skipped the stupid clock arc after i realized it was more of the same garbage.



that about sums it up.

Side note to earlier, someone mentioned that development is hard for a long series, really? one piece is somewhere around 640 Eps... doesn't even have love interests and never intended too, yet characters are developing and interesting still.... fairy tail is less than a 3rd of that size and is failing drastically.

Yeah, this is mainly what I meant. The whole idea of eventually losing control of his Geass was cool, but it's just so obviously the narrative forcing him to say something he'd never realistically say in any situation.
