There's some anime that I just don't get. Of those the one I recall the most is Jo jo's bizarre adventure. I tried watching the first few episodes. I've no wish to go further. Oh and I fell asleep trying to watch the first episode of Taboo tattoo. What are your animes that you can't get into?

FairyTail
D-Frag
Endride
The Future Diary
Reborn
Prison School
Mysterious Girlfriend X
No Game No Life
The Melonchanly of Huruhi Sayima
B Gata Kei Gate
Girl's High
Gunslinger Girl

What I can't get into the most is when an anime has female protagonist(s)

Outside of things that I just find bad

For this season:
- 91 Days - I can appreciate what it's try to do, and I'm sure it's doing it well, but I have just never been interested in gangster/mob stories. Even the best ones are just straight up not interesting to me.
- Mob Psycho 100 - I was initially completely turned off by the art style and but decided I would give it a shot due to the hype, and was then turned off by the characters. No dice.

Overall:
- Anything drawn by or based on Akira Toriyama's art. I just can stand his art style. At all. Not even a little.
- Almost anything with a harem set up. There are a few examples of it that I enjoy, but these are most often parodies or self aware spoofs of the set up.

Any Ghost in the Shell stuff. The first movie was good, but I have tried to watch like, two different series of the anime and I just cannot get myself to watch another episode.

Stupid dumb Guilty Crown. Worst protagonist ever, like literally. EVER. It actually seems like a cool concept too.

All sports anime. Just cannot get into them being excited about sports and shit. Food Wars is good, but thats because its goddamn food. its mostly just funny + special effects.

Psycho-Pass. Once again, the concept was quite interesting, but the protagonist fails me. Everyone in that anime is emotionless and dull. Maybe it got better later with the character development, but it did not start well enough.

Gurren Lagann. Just not my style, I'm afraid.

Any of the standard shonen fare. One Piece, Naruto, Dragonball, Fairy Tale, etc.

Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt. Really, really not my style.

I have a hard time getting into a series if it doesn't have a strong female protagonist.

I tried to watch one Ghost in the Shell episode and I agree with you on that.

Ooh, Mushi Shi. I tried to start watching that twice, and got bored silly. The art style alone puts me to sleep.

One piece

I really get that its a great anime and all but i just cant get into it. i was told that the first 50 episodes are a little boring (they truly are) but i got into my head that sometimes you have to start it and go beyond to get to the good part. I was kind of about episode 63 and just couldnt do it anymoreeee.

Madoka Magica

I binge-watched it and at the same time, was struggling to get to the final episode, just to checkout what the hype was all about. I totally didn't see the twist at the end coming, but still it's shallow as I couldn't relate at all to the series.

I guess magical girl just isn't my type. The first of its kind I watched ages ago would be sailer moon,
though I grew out of it and don't think I will ever get into this genre ever again in the foreseeable future.
