    Re: What anime have you recently dropped and why?

    I'm dropping Space Dandy after 4 episodes.

    Reasons
    • I found the characters hard to like.
    • It doesn't strike me as funny or well written.
    • Animation looks a little cheap (surprisingly)

    The killer for me here was the characters and the dialogue. It's all stupidity and sexism. With little variety or substance. Acting stupid and repeating the word "boobies" seems to be heart and soul of this show; and I guess that doesn't work for me. At least not in this series.

    Out of curiosity, which one?

    Furthermore I dropped Wizard Barristers: Benmashi Cecil for good. The art and plot are not my cup of tea. Don't really wanna watch Law and Order with magic...

    The art of Wizard Barristers definitely appeals to me. The plot, not as much. I am going to watch episode three before deciding whether to drop.

    Dropped after 3 episodes for the same reasons. I planned to watch the 4th episode, but after postpone it twice I came to the conclusion that I postponed because I didn't like it. Apparently it was a smart decison judging by the comment of Jammin.

    You didn't miss anything. The 4th is a weird Romero tribute zombie episode. Which was supposed to be funny, I assume. But if anything about it actually was funny then the humor must have flown right over my head.

    Re: What anime have you recently dropped and why?

    It makes me a bit sad that you guys are dropping Space Dandy since I sincerely enjoy watching it.

    I skipped most of the scenes in the recent episode of Samurai Flamenco so I won't bother watching subsequent ones. The only reason why I kept up with it for so long was because I wanted to see Goto's girlfriend who I doubt will show up any time soon (or at all). I will, however, keep up with what's happening through posts and comments; I just don't have the time or patience to sit through an episode.

    Obviously I'll watch the episode when Goto's girlfriend shows up if she does.

    I just dropped Mahou Sensou after the ninth episode. The show is really, really bad. You get no character development, just one stupid fight after another filled with fanservice parts. The pacing is absolutely ridiculous. Wouldn't get more than a 3/10 so I better stop now.

    You might as well just stick with it and finish it, its only a few episode left.

    No it is just not worth it. I rather use those 24 minutes for gaming. Should've dropped it way earlier though...

    I might drop Black Bullets. Not for me, and I guess my list has already loaded before I added that.

    Re: What anime have you recently dropped and why?

    I dropped Akuma no Riddle and Blade and Soul. Especially AnR is so bad that I feel ashamed to have watched 6 episodes...
    BaS's animaztion is cringeworthy and the plot is mediocre at best. The main char is not really fun to watch either.

    I dropped Akuma after one episode. I've also dropped Gokukoku, M3, Mangakasan, and Tonari no Seki-kun. I'm too busy, none were worth the time.

    I really should've done that sooner, I guess. At this point even though my interest level is so low I feel bad dropping it so I just watch it for the sake of completing it. I feel that the assassination plots and plans are very simple and can always be destroyed by Tokaku that it is no longer interesting. And the riddles are too much for my head, lol.

    Re: What anime have you recently dropped and why?

    I got tired of having to make time for mediocrity, dropping the rest of the anime I found irredeemably bland. No more Black Bullet and Gaworare. Both had potential neither seems likely to meet.

    Re: What anime have you recently dropped and why?

    I've dropped everything I was watching for various reasons.


    Date A Live II

    Just wasn't in the right mood, I guess. The various new heroines didn't catch me. Might check out the the high points when it's run is done.

    Hitsugi no Chaika

    This plot in this show just didn't get it done for me. The whole thing pivoted on being interested in Chaika and I just wasn't. Animation quality was also disappointing, I'm used to expecting a lot more from BONES.

    Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin

    Just not serious enough drama for me. The fault here was probably with my expectations since what interested me about the show was the premise's similarity to AnoHana. And that just wasn't what this show was. It's more of mystery/comedy and to be honest I got bored with it.
