Ace Attorney made me sad....dropped after 5 min.
Mayoiga, haven't dropped yet but am SERIOUSLY considering dropping it after 10 episodes, last 2 might not even be worth it

I actually dropped Kiznaiver around episode 5. I don't know why, but I just felt like it wasn't going anywhere, especially since the first few episodes were really interesting.

Same thing with Big Order. Then again I'm the guy that also wasn't a big fan of Mirai Nikki. There's just something weird with the story-telling, it feels like the plot is spastic between different types of directing.

None of these shows mentioned are even close to average.

I have a no drop rule at the moment but would have dropped trash like (all 1/10 unless otherwise state):

Absolute Duo: Generic trash, with dense bland OP MC and generic loli sidekick. (Basically a bad Black Bullet which is a 2/10 show)

Black Bullet (2/10): Loli's and an OP dense bland MC again. What ever happened to action and a plot?

Diabolik Lovers: This was awful watching a little girl get abused only to have her brush it off and go back to them and fall in love with them why bother have characters react in even remotely realistic ways.

Gate (3/10): A decent military show that degraded into a terrible harem with lolis . . .

Garo: Guren no Tsuki: Terrible CG with a OP MC that one shots the enemy and defeats them in 30 seconds every episode until episode 10 where he has to start hitting them twice to beat them. This show is episodic and only one minute of each episode focuses on the actual plot or character development.

Episode 20 Spoiler


Isuca: Kill it with fire.

Komori-san Can't Decline: I'll just post my review for it.


Pupa: It jammed over 20 chapters of content into less than 25 minutes, so you can imagine how this turned out.

No Game No Life (3/10): A show where the MCs will always win. This could have been interesting if they made the ways they win more interesting instead of the fan service filled loli fest it was. Akagi and Kaiji did this concept well, so it was interesting to see how someone could mess this up so badly.

Triage X: Action with balloons for the girls busts. This could have been okay despite the terrible ecchi and fanservice, with having decent action. Instead we have zero character development, few action scenes (in a show that only is about action . . . ), and quite a lot of fanservice of girls we don't even know their names of let alone anything about them.

Vampire Holmes: No plot, no character development, and the same gags in the first episode are just repeated every episode after for another eleven times. If it was not funny the first time why would it ever be funny the twelfth time.

Honorable Mentions to other terrible newer shows (Shows scoring 2/10): Akuma no Riddle, Charlotte, Cross Ange: Tenshi to Ryuu no Rondo, Dance with Devils, Denpa Kyoushi (TV), Gakkougurashi!, Gokukoku no Brynhildr, Listen to Me Girls I'm your Father, Plastic Memories, Nisekoi, Owari no Seraph, Sword Art Online.

Animation issues have been a reoccurring theme with many newer anime.

Anime that should have large budgets, but are done by incompetent companies like Toei Animation have ruined many shows.

Sailor Moon Crystal, Dragon Ball Super, World Trigger all look like trash and you would think Dragon Ball Super would have one of the larger budgets due to the name alone and how much money the series will make them.

I'm starting to think I'm the only person who actually liked Myriad Colours Phantom World. It was a nice looking, and fun show.


No, I liked it as well. I thought that the advertised premise was a bit of a fake out (although apparently true for the original work), and it didn't make it to where it could, but it was a solid "B" in my book.

As to what I've dropped:

Ace Attorney: 1 episode, and wow, did it suck! Seriously, how incompetent are the police and prosecutors? How NOT to adapt a game.

Cerberus: I gave this a few episodes. I might go back, but probably not. It was barely mediocre and I got bored.

Haven't You Heard? I'm Sakamoto Gave it 2 episodes. Boring as hell, one joke, and I got tired of the homoeroticism.

Other drops:

Snow White With The Red Hair This was very well done shojo, and I lasted almost to the end of the first season, but I got tired of the shojoism. The. Pace. Was. Just. Too. Slow. For. Me. I do recognize that this was a very well done show.

Sailor Moon Crystal Updated version, why not give it a try to see what the fuss was about? Answer: Shojoism. I got so bored with it, I dropped it after 10 episodes of hoping I could stand the boredom for something better. Nope, didn't happen.

There are several shows that I've paused on this season, as I discovered the hilarious ecchi fun of Seitokai Yakuindomo, but they are shows I intend to return to, emphasis on intend, and a few shows I've decided to wait till they're finished for binging purposes.

Ace Attorney. What a letdown, not that I was expecting it to be as good as the games, but oh man does it hit some bad notes. Animation and art in particular just don't meet my standards as well, not to mention the story just seems like a speedrun of the game itself, skipping all the potential humorous dialogue found in the games.

I'm considering dropping Twin Star Exorcists, but the past 3 episodes have been good enough for me to hang around just to see if the next episode is just as entertaining as the previous one. Kind of hoping something big happens soon though.

I've dropped Anne-Happy this season. It's very good, but the anime was too slow for me. I'm waiting for the manga to come out because I know I'd fall in love with it.
I've also dropped BAKUON, and close to dropping Big Order. They just weren't my thing.
