If I don't enjoy the first episode enough and it's clearly not for me than I will not continue watching. If I get sucked into episode 2 and it ends up sucking then I guess I'm watching a crappy anime.

Is Gintama really a worthy anime? I dropped it after watching the first 4-5 episodes (the ones where the main characters are formerly introduced). I found that anime show so.. dumb and far from being funny, and I really like to watch series like Deadpool, Cromartie high School or Detroit Metal city where their humor is sometimes absurd but stupidly funny

Excessive amounts of fan service will make me drop something the fastest, you know like surprise this is actually an ecchi show. I don't do ecchi, for the most part, 2nd best way to make me drop something is have an unlikable/unrelatable Protagonist. Light form Death Note, is a good example for me, i can't get behind a sociopath and dropped it after the 2nd episode.

Usually the main reason I would drop a series is because the humor is not something I find funny. Also, I can't watch any series that is seemingly never ending because I usually give up pretty early on.

I usually drop an anime when:

1) I do not at all like the first episode.
2) It doesn't get better after 7 episodes.

1) If it bores me
2) If it is tedious to watch
3) If it does not compel me to watch the next episode

For just about any show, if they don't explain what the objective of the protagonist is I drop it no matter what. I'm no fan of shows that just endlessly seem to follow characters around for the sake of entertainment with no purpose. Even SoL shows have an objective, but shows like Durarara/Blood Blockade seem have a plot hole in place of a story element. Everything else is a wait and see approach.

Now that I think about it, I'm a bit mystified by why I dropped Asterisk Wars. There's no clear reason I can think of beside it was predictable.

In general the only series I have dropped have been ones which were not able to get me interested after the first two episodes, on rare occasions I will give a series till ep 3 to prove to me it is at least entertaining to my tastes. Otherwise, the way I look at it is if it can not entertain me for 1/3rd of the normal anime length, how can it expect to entertain me longer then that.

A few series though I dropped on Episode 1 because I never liked the artstyle.


I don't keep up to date normally with the latest anime coming out either unless something catches my eye, otherwise I am too busy going through my backlog of Anime over the years (I have at least 50 older series I still need to try out after all. Some longer then others)


So far my dropped series I can remember: Another, Durarara, Attack on Titian, Some strange anime where the MC ended up in a paralal dimension every little bit but he was the only person who could see it kinda reminded me of Persona 3 only it wasn't, SAO, and I think there are 2 or 3 more series I have dropped but I can't remember details.

I find it hard to drop a series, as I enjoy both good ones and bad ones, but when I do drop one, it is usually due to some gut feeling saying "don't waste your time".

Slow pacing.

...and for game adaptations, compressed, shortened story (Danganronpa, Persona 4, etc.).
