Good characters are a huge priority for me when watching an anime. They're the means by which a story is conveyed and if they fall flat, so too does they story, no matter what else it has going for it. Conversely, good characters can compensate for otherwise crippling flaws in an anime and make it quite decent to watch.

Impending tornado, flash flood, being mistaken for a Sasquatch by cable paranormal hunter wannabes: perils all. If the show is any good I can just go downtown and hope Best Buy has an anime nerd on staff trying to sell me a wide-screen until it's safe to go back home.

Dog with Scissors.....dropped account animal cruelty
Bodacious Space Pirates aka Smart Tarts with Charts......dropped account too much time spent training
Aldnoah.Zero...dropped past epi 4 account rambling plot line that made absolutely zero sense
Clockwork Planet.....dropped account too reminiscent of previous season about a show that featured gears, kids, no plot

many others too numerous to mention atm (to protect the guilty)

I am going with other here as while those other options certainly wouldn't help a show's cause, I can put up with those things to a limited extent if the show has something else to bring to the table. Generally speaking, I'm obligated to finish watching an anime if I can, but there are quite a few other things that will turn me away with an agonizingly constructed plot being the biggest reason. Unlikable characters and tasteless concept will also have me wanting to pull the plug, but most of all it's the story that will just get me to stop more so than anything.

I would stop watching an anime, even if I enjoyed what it was about, if the characters are just not any good. I mean it could be the best story idea ever but it would fall short to bad character development or bad character roles. In any anime, the characters are what make the anime what it is, as they are the ones who are conveying the story for us. If I can't stand a character and the way they are portrayed or the decisions they make, now this is different than like comparing to villains or for character development, I definitely won't finish it.

Unlikable protagonists. More specifically, the ones that the narrative expects me to see as sympathetic heroes.

Voice acting and Character troupes that was what ruined uta no prince sama for me, the best friend of the main character had a horrible voice and the main character was useless.........just me? ok.....whatever....

Hmmm slow plot progression, too many filler episodes and just simply losing interest

terrible voice acting. I can't stand it. Which is probably also why I can't watch dub. *shudder*

All of the above are bad.
Plus: E) Bad story ending
If I can tell where the story is going and it's not going to end well, that's the deal breaker.

I'd say combination of all the above, or just trying to keep audience via echhi scenes is not plot. Exception to that would be Maoyu ep 1, cause PLOT device.

I tend to get deterred when people start spoiling a series for me... Takes out the enjoyment for me.
