Do you drop anime? If so, why?
I never dropped an anime. I don't like to simply drop it, that's the reason I could handle some freaking bad ones :P
Yep. Somehow, Panty and Stocking got me to drop in 5 sec for no particular reason. Karin took 5 min because "Jesus, this is generic"
Same here. As much I love anime and manga, they are too saturated with shows that feel the same, blatantly rip off each other, just a retread of the previous season or dragged too long with a lot of boring bits. One major off putting points for me though would be the in your face main moral theme a show try to hammer into the audience. There was manga about a kid sent to a jail, forced to fight for his life but he discovered a hidden, deadly power. The art style was amazing, it was brutal and I was attracted to it instantly. Then I noticed that the main character spout the same silly moral value about friendship at the end of every episode...I gave up on it quickly. Those main running theme or moral values are important to a story because it gave a purpose for the characters but the writers should've at least weave it much more subtly, naturally instead of blatantly shouting it every episode.
Was that deadman? I think I remember something like that and although it didn't make me drop the show, it fell in my eyes a bit. I'm not one to hate on shows that feel the same but Karin was just too much for me. Any joke you can make about a Shoujo show/manga, you could make with the first 5 minutes of Karin.
Yes, it was Deadman Wonderland. I love it if the writers let us follow the characters and discover their convictions evolved as the story progresses. I don't like it when we are told about it at the end of each episode. Currently I'm following Ajin and so far I like what I'm seeing. I'm just hoping it doesn't ended up like Deadman where the main character kept shouting how important family is to him.
You drop it as soon as you think you won't get any enjoyment out of it. That's what Anime is for ;)
If I'm not interested, or the story is going down a path that I'm not liking (entertainment-wise), then yeah, I'll watch something else. There are far too many anime out there that deserve a chance, no point in wasting my time on something I'm not enjoying.
Ya I dropped a few in my time. If its not interesting for me and I can't get into the story then ya lol. But it's rare. One that made me drop it right away was dance of the vampire bud. Lolly is cute and all but when you show her naked with a man chest I switch it off lol. I'm aware later in the manga she gets a adult form. But they already lost me with that. If your going to do Lolly vamp do it right.. Rachel from the blaz blue video game and now anime is a good example. ^^
I've dropped garbage like fma, Madoka magica and shitboy bebop.
Hahahahahahah troll is troll but nice try u make me laugh :P it's funny how u pick anime for your troll attempt that is in every1's TOP 10 list :)
Some anime can be very inconsistent in quality unlike anime like Attack on Titan and Hunter x Hunter (2011 ver.)
Who doesn't? the first anime I drop for this season fall of 2013 was "Coppelion" this anime was unbelievably boring & uninteresting.. it was painful to keep on watching so I said "fck it.. it's not worth it" so I drop it, I have drop a few anime through all this years I watch anime, one other that it's very famous in JPN but I couldn't stand it was "A Certain Magical Index" I find it boring so I drop it also I hate it for some reason I don't have idea why Japanese like it so much..
There is so much content available I can't see why anyone would trudge through something they don't like when they have literally thousands of alternatives. I don't watch anime while it airs though.
I dropped Diabolik Lovers after watching the first episode, I was extremely disgusted by the overall tone of the anime, and not to mention the vampire rape fetish that they're trying to sate for their niche audience.
