At the start of any season I'll start around 10 shows just to see what will appeal to me. Sometimes I end up finding shows that I might not have watched based upon the previews. Sometimes a show that sounded interesting turns out to be something I'm not interested in. So yeah, I will end up dropping at least half the shows I start.

Hardly understandable jokes for "insiders" like from Joshiraku.
Typical beta MC who got great power but is "afraid" of using it, when he is the only one who can solve everything.
Overpowered characters that are powerful "just because they are", like Priscilla from Claymore or Juha Bach from Bleach.
"Birthright" bullshit aka eyes, blood limits, "will of D", alien stuff inside of MC's body and other shit that makes them special snowflakes.
Too much unnecessary edgyness, darkness and violence without a solid reason like in GANTZ.
Too much "morality" and "honor code".
School "geniuses" who outsmart best scientists and outpower martial artists who trained for their entired life
Ridiculous censorship, like in Toriko, JJBA, Terra Morphars.
Urobochi
I hardly drop any anime, but this factors made many titles very unpleasant to watch, I pick up much less stuff I used to in past and I hardly have even 100 titles.

I've probably watched close to 200 anime, and the only series I ever couldn't stick with and watch all the way was Naruto.

Well sometimes anime eventually get better, especially if it's not very long running title of 12-20 episodes, I'm trying to search for positive sides of title, I hardly met a single unredeemably bad, the only title I dropped by far were Joshiraku, because of jokes I dont understand at all.

There's one exception to this and it's that comedy manga that I forgot the name of. Does anyone remember it? It had the protag throw a DVD into a DVD player and leap behind the television in perfect sync with his recorded DVD self.

He also caught a fly with a compass and brought an umbrella to the bathroom

It's the feeling you get after watching a good episode from a shit show. You'll bitch at the beginning about how it's so fucking bad and then there's this episode that completely redeems itself from all of its past sins.

If that episode or moment doesn't come, then tough luck, just go next.

No, Anon is right. It's usually not so much a genre or theatrical technique as it it's just lazy writing. It's convenient to have characters act really stupidly and ooc when building tension in relationships. It saves having to make the effort to think things through and be detailed. It's hard to project into people who apparently lack even the most basic communication skills.

We all know this.

I remember liking Naruto when the kids were fighting each other in duels for their ninja academy or whatever.

Later I went back to watch shitpooden. One episode was all I needed to see that the show had gone straight to hell. 22 minutes and nothing happened. The characters just stood on either sides of a bridge and stared at each other, with flashbacks and shit. It was fucking terrible.

There's my two cents. I'm just elated to see I was dead right.

>Interesting set-up and great potential for world building, ends up being banal nonsense driven by boring characters.

Unfortunately, I usually end up getting suckered into finishing it. I don't understand how you can end up dropping more than a handful of shows, though. Generally speaking, you can get the gist just by looking at the seasonal charts.

Some of these 'instant' drop reasons sound more like things packaged in with the premise beforehand, meaning you just wouldn't pick it up to start with.

Have you really ever 'instantly' dropped a show that you were otherwise interested in? Isn't that kind of impulsive?

Would you really be able to tell if they were westerners if they weren't the same pigment as the japanese characters?

Nobody want to see an unappealing looking foreigner. If anything the Japanese are actually doing us a favor by actually making westerners look appealing.
Japanese people are xenophobic and racist as fuck but if they make someone representing of your country actually look good, might as as well take it.

What the fuck did you just say.

Yukimura had the balls to create an interesting character design that rivalled fucking Guts, with a unique fighting style attepting to be new. A balls to the wall cast with a vague undefined goal waiting to be reached. And in the end he resolves it within the next 3-4 chapters and resets everything to go on some spirit quest. Unless it was explicitly stated "read some anglo saxon history" specifically early British isles lords (rising to power) than the entire farmland saga is just an uncalled for mess.

Why is that bad? I always thought of a nice guy who is more than willing to put everything else ahead of himself as a nice role-model, even if unrealistic.

I think what piss me off more is how everyone will hold him as Jesus or something. A selfish person is also fun to watch, if he has faults, but one that's constantly worshipped and getting his dick sucked is another thing.

That's pretty much the only type of anime I'd drop at this point mostly because it'll either end with tsundere first girl winning, which while I don't have an issue with that arc type it gets boring to watch, or it has some weird open ended BS. If the main character is even remotely like Keitaro from Love Hina than that's just the cherry on top of the shit.

there is this manga. It is on an island filled with healthy milfs and such.

I drop shows like I drop my books. If I am reading a book and after an hour I am still not entertained then I will put it away and start with another.

Same goes for a series. If by the second or third episode I am not engaged, then the series is not for me and I will go to another one.

For example. Several years ago someone told me to watch One Piece. Everyone was raving about it. I watched 5 episodes of it but couldn't be bothered to watch more. For me personal the story was bland, the artstyle was annoying and the pacing was horrible.

I stopped watching in and never regretted it. Same goes for Stein's gate. Lot's of people like it, but I had to stop watching it because I was still bored after the third episode.
