Why me first? I guess if I had to pick one thing, it'd be when an anime goes from an interesting premise to a watered-down slice-of-life gimmick. I dropped FSN after a few episodes once I realized this was about to happen

generic moe as fuck character designs. I won't argue if Clannad's the greatest love story ever told, since i haven't seen it, but damn am i turned off from even watching it. it's also why i'm not this close to ever playing neptunia.


in a similar vein, try-hards character designs. not just limited to edgy shit, but stuff you get off most sci-fi VNs. something along the lines of Blazblue.

My trinity of dropping a show:

-If the plot doesn't go somewhere.
-If the Mc is a fucking pussy.
-If it turns into a yank fest over a main character, or the villains/supporting character are retarded.
>>
I don't drop anime.
>>
If the characters have same-face

Not anime but I got decently far into a scifi manga (whose name escapes me atm) until the MC's female friend suddenly died but then next issue was there like nothing happened. Turns out it was completely different character and MC was just friendly with both

God Eater wasn't CGI though. Aside from the Aragami.

I dunno if I'd call it an instant drop, but when the show prioritises being cute over everything else.

I gain nothing from this because I unfortunately don't find the average anime's definition of cute to be cute at all.

>some Japanese studio crafts a story about heroes from every mythology gathering in one place, born from Japan's strong tradition of cultural syncretism
>armed with their experiences, they face the greatest adventure of all time; the challenge of everyday life
>as teenagers they are forced to attend school and be in the vicinity of each other for most of the day
>every character is now a girl
>it's also a harem anime with a generic male lead

Monkey's paw shit. This probably already happened and I just erased it from memory.

I've just never seen good cgi in anime, because good cgi is not supposed to be seen. If I can tell that something is cgi, it's bad cgi, end of story.

Oh christ, I never knew how much of a wild card PA works is

Physical violence on male lead played for laughs. I ain't need any of that shit in my life.

Individual characters that are impossibly annoying to tolerate.

Other than that, it comes down to whether I'm bored at the end of first ep or not. No clear conditions for this exist, other than subjective taste.

>Pants are camouflaged unevenly.
>unevenly.

Isn't that sort of the point of camouflage? To break up you outline and not have a recognizable pattern that sticks out?

>CGI
What's the problem with this? is it the 2.5D stuff that gets on people's nerves? I'm more of a manga guy so I never know what people are talking about
>>

>2.5D
What?
No, there's 3DCG shit in anime all over the place. Cars and other backgrounds are very common, but the really annoying stuff is mechs. Lots of shows use shitty CG mechs and they're the center of attention for most of the anime.

People getting flustered over Indirect Kissu.
