I have only given some anime 1 episode before deciding it was crap but i have also experinced that an anime that starts average can turn out to be very good so usually if i dont like it by 3 episodes i probably wont bother.
But sometimes an anime that i really like i never finish becasue too much time passes before i get around to getting back into it and/or i start another series.
I think i watched about 400 episodes of Naruto before i lost interest.
I watched 65 episodes of Fairy tale. Probably will watch more one day.
Never watched all of the Ranma 1/2 or Slayers either.

If the description of an anime sounds boring or uninteresting I simply wont watch it. As for actually dropping it depends. I drop first episode if there is nothing that catches my interest in it. I drop second or third if a couple things entertain me but the rest don't. Anything that makes it past three is only dropped when I decide it is getting nowhere, the anime has been ruined for me, it simply becomes boring, or I get so busy I do not have time for all the anime I am currently watching.

Two or three . . . sometimes more.
It took me only one episode to drop . . . . . I can't remember.... but there were quite a few.

*Unpopular opinion try not to get too mad. It is in fact my opinion, not fact.*

If I start one I will usually finish it whether it be good or complete and utter garbage. I watched Samurai Champloo from beginning to end and hated it through the entirety of it. I also had the same experience with Legend of Legendary Heroes. I really wanted that show to be good but that ending was awful.

The only anime I've dropped is Gatchman Crowds... And that was after 15 minutes... The bright colors and art style gave me a massive headache. ( ´_⊃`)

Yeah dude, most people love it. It's critically acclaimed, basically 8.5 and up reviews everywhere. I absolutely hated it.

We are all different. There's lots of popular anime that i have no to little interest in (dragon ball z , one piece, bleach, gundam, etc)
Evangelion and Akira are overrated!

Cant give a definite number. For long-runnin' animes, I'd give a much better chance by watchin' thru 10-15 episodes before deciding if 'tis best to be dropped or no (as the storyline tends to pick up slow). But some would start suckin' ass past a couple of seasons or so due to too much fillers...... and that's when I start askin' myself if such a series is still worth pursuing. As for those with small # of episodes, I tend to finish em. But only because I'd first be checkin' the description and art style before diving in.

I watch at least four episodes but I rarely drop anything. The last anime I dropped was World Trigger and only because it was after 7-8 episodes known that it will have 50 episodes. Was way too many to endure.
