What are things that make you want to not watch or drop a series

for me if the seven deadly sins are involved into the plot line or a a character motif

Its so over done and annoying at this point

name a few other than Kiznever and the show already titled after it

>"I just want a normal life"
>girl falls in love with the MC for no plausible reason at all

With a few exceptions, these are an instant drop for me

Fantasy setting with retarded characters.
>SAO
>We die in the game we die in real life
>Let's ostracize the people who know the game's mechanics and would have helped us survive
>I'm going to hide my skills for no reason while my friends get killed.

>DanMachi
>Monster on the loose that is so strong that you can't cut through with iron daggers
>Hestia has that super blade, but doesn't give it to main character for 2 episodes while she tells him that she believes in him and while he's risking his life.

Such a shame that retarded characters are a norm rather than the exception. Another thing that makes me want to drop series is when muh misunderstandings are used as a major plot device.

>seven deadly sins
The "capital vices", also known as the "seven deadly sins" or "cardinal sins", is a Western religious grouping and classification of vices.

Mind you vices are not sins. It is just a warning sign for behaviors that could lead to sin (Violation of the ten commandments).

>>139936644
If I can't enjoy it or watched it right. Even a shitty "fantasy school battle harem", I won't drop it unless I can't enjoy it.

And as far as enjoyment goes; watched for Mayumi, dropped for Miyuki.

Even worse if the sensible people who warned them not to do something done get shitted on for daring to criticise Gary Stu

But most of the time the MC is correct in his judgement, and the "sensible" people are just wrong.
>>
>>139942103
In my experience, things turn out ok for the MC because of their unknown power/fluke luck, which bugs me because I prefer it when the protagonists win due to skill or prior planning.

So for example, I recently watched the first episode of God Killer. The MC disobeys orders because they have the generic AoT mentality of "charge screaming at the evil monsters." No training, no backup. He get to the battle and is almost immediately killed, but fortunately, support shows up just in time. After being a dead weight for a while, the MC decides to charge a monster, nearly gets killed again but this time his Superpower kicks in and he defeats the monster.

For me, this is just rubbish, so I dropped it.

If the MC had gone in, planned on stalling for time until backup arrived, and such it would be fine. But its the fact that the MC keeps on getting "get out of stupid jail free" cards, aka dumb luck, that bothers me.

I thought you guys watched anime because you hated 3DPD?

>god-like unbeatable MC

>>139943243
They do hate 3DPD, but that doesn't mean they want to watch a show where there is a conflict that can be resolved simply by talking face-to-face. It comes off as forced drama.

Any accidental boob grabbing in the first episode is a strong case to drop something.

Pretty much everything in Kiznaiver
>>
MC, who is a new student at school, beats the student who's really good at "thing" in episode one and everyone is shocked.

Yuri subtext in episode one. I don't mind if a show has yuri in it, but in episode one I can tell a show is most likely going to be awful.

Really bad comedy in episode one will also make me not give a show a second chance if it's billing itself as a comedy.
