Anime that You Dropped

I just finished watching Kuro to kin kirakanai Kagi and I was so close to dropping this anime. Then I thought about which anime I did drop and why? So I'll put some of mine down with my reasons. The rest is up to you.

The Top Ten

1 Chaos Dragon Chaos Dragon

Surprisingly, I was very confused with this anime. I had to write down characters names and descriptions so I could remember them. The setting wasn't enjoyable, the plot was a gentle slope that stopped going up, the characters are cookie cutter characters and the main character's power is so stupid. He can kill someone else by killing his friends. Yet his friends are okay with that? - RoseRedFlower

2 Wolf Girl and Black Prince Wolf Girl and Black Prince

A sexist anime that was somehow uninteresting and bland. I had no desire to finish the rest because there's better romance anime to watch. - RoseRedFlower

3 Pupa Pupa

If there's one thing an anime should never be, it's boring. That's what Pupa was. And this came out three years ago. The magna is indeed better but it kept getting pushed back in production and it really shows. - RoseRedFlower

4 Eiken Eiken

The gigantic boobs were too much for me. I had to stop watching. - RoseRedFlower

Who the hell would want to watch this in the first place?

Couldn't make it past 10 minutes.

I... I just couldn't do it - emeraldfennekin

5 Mars of Destruction Mars of Destruction

Other than the fact that every character is the same from looks to personality, this anime was unbearable to sit through. I know fanfictions and comics online made from Deviantart that are written better than Mars of Destruction. - RoseRedFlower

6 Hanoka Hanoka

This anime was just a mess. Seriously, I dare you right now to look up images of it. Yes, that's what the animation is like. I honestly believe this is the worst drawn anime I've ever seen. I hate Eiken's animation but I only had one giant problem with it. This is just horrible in every frame. - RoseRedFlower

You haven't seen bad anime until you've seen Hanoka.

I have seen this anime, and it's literally impossible to look past the bad animation.
Oh, and the animation isn't the only problem of this anime.
The story of this anime is generic and forgettable, and it's INCREDIBLY rushed.
I don't have a problem with short anime, but this is an exception.
I did manage to finish this anime, but was it worth anything?
No. - Kiyomi

7 One Piece (4kids)

Now, I love One Piece but I could never finish the One Piece dub by 4kids. They edit almost everything in that anime. From cigarettes to lollipops, weapons, skin color, etc. Plus the theme's the worst anime theme song I've ever heard. - RoseRedFlower

The 4kids version of One Piece is legendary of how bad it is. Thank goodness it was redubbed again. - HoneyClover

8 Dark Cat Dark Cat

If anyone says old 90's anime is the best, show them this. There's great 90's anime but this isn't it. There's too many weird tentacle scenes that made it more hentai than an action anime. This dialogue felt like it was written by a ten year old. It was just a stupid movie. - RoseRedFlower

9 Kiss Him, Not Me! Kiss Him, Not Me!
10 Endride Endride

This came out last year and I was just done by episode seven. It was very generic and didn't offer me anything to sit through/ - RoseRedFlower

The Contenders

11 Air Air
12 Hayate the Combat Butler Hayate the Combat Butler Hayate The Combat Butler is a Taiwanese television drama based on the Japanese shōnen manga of the same name by Kenjiro Hata.
13 Eromanga Sensei Eromanga Sensei
14 Oreimo Oreimo
15 Brothers Conflict Brothers Conflict

A girl and her stepbrothers. The stepbrothers try to molest her. It was just tedious and I couldn't be bothered finishing to watch it. - RoseRedFlower

16 The Asterisk War The Asterisk War
17 Charlotte Charlotte
18 Peach Girl Peach Girl

So dumb and all the characters suck!

19 Yuri on Ice Yuri on Ice Yuri!!! on Ice is a sports anime television series about figure skating. The anime was produced by MAPPA, directed by Sayo Yamamoto and written by Mitsurō Kubo.
20 Sword Art Online Sword Art Online Sword Art Online is a series of Japanese light novels written by Reki Kawahara and illustrated by abec. In 2012, it received an anime adaptation produced by A-1 Pictures and the SAO Project, and is directed by Tomohiko Ito . The first season is divided into two arcs known as "Aincrad" and "Fairy Dance". more.

I didn't like the anime but Sugou made it unbearable. The whole second part was even worse than the first part! - HoneyClover

21 Handa-kun Handa-kun

Too boring.

22 Elfen Lied Elfen Lied
23 Naruto Naruto Naruto is an anime and manga franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto. The manga was later adapted into a television anime, which was produced by Studio Pierrot and Aniplex. It premiered across Japan on the terrestrial TV Tokyo and other TX Network stations on October 3, 2002. The first series more.

I used to like watching Naruto, because it didn't start as a typical boy's action anime. It contained stories of being ignored by people, and trying your best despite your parentage and natural skills. But...when it got to Shippuden, it began to lose that special themes. Naruto and Sasuke were once hardworking ninjas who will do anything in order to get stronger. But those years of hardworking crashed down worthless, when it was discovered that Naruto and Sasuke were reincarnations of Indra and Asura. UGH! So they were "supposed" to be god-like. That completely dropped the lesson Naruto was teaching me all along. Starting from "Try your best and don't give up, and you will be great" to "Hey what do ya know? I've got sage mode, I've got tailed beasts, I've got eye powers, I'm actually a reincarnation of a god-like ninja! "
The thing that there are perfect geniuses in Naruto makes it unrelatable.

24 Ergo Proxy Ergo Proxy Ergo Proxy is a science fiction suspense anime television series, produced by Manglobe, directed by Shukō Murase and written by Dai Satō.

I dropped it three times, and I only watched 9 out of 23 episodes.
Seriously. This anime was not good at all!
What I disliked about this anime:
It was boring and short-paced, there were too many plot details, to the point that your brain gets cooked.
There's too many information, and the plot is just.. hard to understand at times.
The animation is weird, and it gave me an eerie vibe, and the characters look strange and creepy.
Seriously, don't ever get me started on those nightmarish AutoReivs.
Oh, and Re-L's appearance.. is interesting...
...In a negative way.
I had no idea what was going on while watching this anime.

25 Ao Haru Ride Ao Haru Ride

I'm sorry, but I just found this anime really boring. - HoneyClover

26 Re/Zero: Starting Life In Another World Re/Zero: Starting Life In Another World

I wanted to drop it in the middle of ti when I was getting bored of it, but becuase I'm an idiot, I watched through it. Eh, I'm the sort of person who doesn't like leaving things undone. - TwilightKitsune

27 Free! Free! Free! is a Japanese anime television series directed by Hiroko Utsumi and produced by Kyoto Animation and Animation Do.
28 Ore Monogatari!! Ore Monogatari!!

Don't get me wrong, the story is cute. I just got bored of it.

Come on it’s so funny! - PugsfromMoon

31 Boku No Pico Boku No Pico Boku no Pico is an anime series of three OVA episodes created by Katsuhiko Takayama. It was released to DVD on September 17, 2006.

Additionally, A-1 Pictures and Satelight have developed seven original video animations and an animated more.

Well, after 545 chapters, the manga is finally finished. The anime is set to have it's final season in 2018.

Might as well drop the manga.

36 Aldnoah.Zero Aldnoah.Zero Aldnoah.Zero, stylized as ΛLDNOΛH.ZERO, is a mecha anime television and print series created by Olympus Knights and A-1 Pictures.

I temporarily dropped Aldnoah.Zero during its second season due to how much it wasted the good of the first season. However, I decided to finish it sometime after in the hopes it would get better. Unfortunately, the second was still a mess all the way through. - SelfDestruct

Characters and cringy writing forced me off immediately, and haven't looked back. And I watched Himouto! Umaru-chan.
