Rokka Braves of the Six. This looked like it could be interesting and I went in with low expectations and an open mind. I was immediately bored but kept watching and dropped it after about 10 minutes.

GATE. This looked pretty good at first, but fairly quickly disappointed. Maybe a little better than Rokka but didn't make it thru episode 1. Come on, anime creators, you'll have to do better than this.

Himouto Umaru-chan. From the reviews I thought this would be entertaining. Didn't make it through the first episode. Pretty generic, not very funny.

Aoharu x Machinegun. I wanted to like this and watched the entire first episode. Started the next and it was already beginning to be a drag. Almost watchable! Sabagebu was much better.

I'm also watching all of those, but the only one out of them that seems "droppable" is Himouto Umaru-chan. As you say, seems fairly generic, and has the potential to get very tiresome very fast, but who knows? Three others that I'm watching that have high potential to be dropped are Monster Musume, To Love Ru Darkness 2, and Shimoneta A Boring World...etc. I'll stick with all of the above for a little longer, but if they don't improve, I think I'm going to be ruthless and drop them. I have a huge backlog of catalog titles in my list.

'kept watching and dropped it after about 10 minutes'

Thats not really 'kept watching' if you only got through 10 minutes.
And we're only a couple episodes in, it seems silly to start dropping things after 10 minutes when the next episode could be brilliant.

The only show ive dropped so far is dragon ball Z. What is everyones obssesion with that show? Gokus voice irretates me every time. Who decided to give a character that should have been a bad ass an old woman voice actress?

I haven't dropped anything yet.

The show I'm closest to dropping would probably be Aoharu x Machinegun.

I've moved this to the Anime forum, since it doesn't ask for Advice or Info or Recommendations.

You might also be interested in the Summer 2015 Favorites or NOT thread. It's a place where folks share in more comprehensive fashion what they watch, what they drop, how they rank things, and how that changes over the course of the season.

So far I've dropped Bikini Warriors and Million Doll and Makuranodanshi, but more will come as I check out second episodes for most of the rest of the season's shows. I need to keep my watch list much more sensible in terms of number of shows this season!

>Dropping after not even one episode.

wat.

I've only dropped Charlotte after it's first two episodes, I know how the story is gunna play out knowing Key and I'm not in the mood for a dramafest that is going to drag out for 6+ episodes.

God Eater is currently hanging on a thread. Unless the next episode saves it it's out too.

Other than that, haven't dropped anything.

Honestly if you drop something before 3 episodes, you should have been able to avoid trying it completely by just looking at the synopsis and maybe adding a trailer or two, because that show is clearly not made for you from the start. That's not really dropping a show imo. You watched the beginning instead of looking at it properly so you stop watching at the beginning rather than not watching at all. If I do that as well I'm going to drop like 20 shows per seasons after 1 episode of each too, but I seriously don't see the point in doing that. Well to each their own way of selecting shows I suppose. I mean complaining that a mystery show was boring after 10 minutes (and are the little 30sec speech of sawashiro at the beginning and the 1mn30sec of the opening included here? That makes 8 minutes if that's the case lol ??), did you seriously looked at what type of show it was? ~


Watching 9 shows currently. Only one that I may drop soon is Charlotte, but I'll still wait to see the kind of story it's going for, since the 2nd episode didn't go the way I feared it would after the 1st episode. As Charizam said it's Key so welll, not a lot of expectation story wise but who knows.

You have the attention span of a walnut.

Congratulations.

I'm assuming you mean Dragonball Chou (Super), because the reason most people enjoy Dragonball Z is for the English dub. People grew up with it and the movies have been entertaining Shonen action and kept it relevant.

So if you were watching Dragonball Super, without ever watching Dragonball Z or Dragonball you won't understand it...that's like watching Godfather 3 without watching the first two. If you were watching the Japanese Dragonball Z...don't do that. Find the dub, it's probably easy enough to find.

Dropped Gunslinger Stratos as I didn't find anything appealing

Log Horizon about halfway into the 2nd season got too annoyed with the pacing and f**k those kids.

Classroom☆Crisis. It was suuuuuuper boring.

Also, it doesn't mean that I'm watching every other anime this season.
