kaze no stigma
it was on netflix so i was watching the english dub
it was ok i just got bored
I'm dropping Devil Survivor 2. Just not interest, to many manga/anime action cliches. If I were a bigger action fan, I might have liked it more. As it is I am not really enjoying it much.
I have dropped Valvrave today or rather put in on hold. Like with RDG I'm already 3 episodes behind and I have no intention to change that...
Maybe I watch it someday in the future but I highly doubt it.

Valvrave is gloriously bad. I would never dream of dropping it, and plan on watching season two.
I'm caught up with Aku no Hana's manga so I don't feel like continuing with the anime.
After watching the first episode and watching bits of the second ep, I’m dropping “Genshiken Nidaime.” It seems the “second generation” is not for me. I wasn’t as captivated as I was by the “first generation”; the story and the characters of this new season didn’t click for me. Tbh, I didn’t even enjoy watching the first episode and judging by what happens in the second episode, I don’t think the direction the story is taking is the right one for me. For all these reasons, I’ve dropped this new season of Genshiken. I still don’t know if I’ll replace it with another new anime or if I’ll just watch two anime series this summer season.

I dropped Silver Spoon after 11 minutes because I remembered why I dropped the Manga. It's just not my stuff and I felt really bored. The gags are not good enough to keep me watching. Too bad. =/

And I dropped Gatchaman too... This show was just ridiculous... No thanks... o_O
I dropped Danganronpa after one episode, Kiniro Mosaic after two. The former was just silly, with boring characters, and a second rate version of an overused plot (Hunger Games, Battle Royalle, Doubt, god knows how how many others). I'm sure the game was sensational, the anime is a hack job. I was going to watch at least one more episode, but there are so many other good series this season that I'm not going to bother. Kinirio Mosaic was pleasant enough, but nothing really special. It's not a bad show, I may watch it after it is done airing.
Gatchaman Crowds, the whole thing is just too over the top for me. Can't relate to the characters and don't really like the art style or premise either. It's like Tiger & Bunny if it was even more over the top, had a weak emotional foundation, and was half as funny.
Inu to Hasami wa Tsukaiyou, the dog protagonist thing got old pretty fast for me. The book fan and excentric author thing was fun at first but seems to have diminishing returns. Might revisit it once the series is done but for now I'm dropping it.
Silver Spoon, I got bored just like Sky. Really don't feel like revising the story. So I probably won't.
Dropped Free! and Kamisama no Inai Nichiyoubi ever since their first episodes aired. Those are my two most recent drops ever since...dunno, since I usually don't drop any anime so easily to begin with. I know a lot of people are all excited about Free!, but...somehow, it just doesn't sit right for me (maybe because a lot of people are expecting much of it, and I tend to just don't like the series everyone is all hyped about. I usually have hard time with the anime everyone seems to be waiting for in each season. I never manage to get the slightest interest in SnK after all, even though everyone seems so hyped about it, now and back then... ._.") and Kamisama no Inai Nichiyoubi is just a little boring for me somehow.
I dropped Kikou Shoujo after one episode. Instead, I am going to try Yowapeda. Kikou Shoujo episode one was poorly animated, bland, and kind of corny. Yowapeda looks much better.

I also dropped Arpeggio of Blue Steel. It just wasn't very good, and the bad CG made it even cornier. I'm watching too many shows this season to stick with something so boring.
I started Gatchaman Crowds but I agree with some of the reasons Jammin already mentioned, gave it up after watching 3 episodes.
Crowds was actually worth watching. I also dropped it early, but caught back up after a few episodes. I'm glad I did. As the show progressed, the characters and story developed a lot of depth. Hajime started annoying, but proved to be one of the most confident, brave, and understanding anime characters I can remember. Berge-Katz was her perfect adversary. Equally confident, loose, and fun loving, but evil and destructive. The other characters felt like real people. They were flawed, insecure, sometimes scared, and often doubted themselves. Rui was a particularly great character. I would not call Crowds a classic, but it definitely was a good show.
Crowds had very little in common with Tiger and Bunny. Maybe nothing. The suits were updated versions of the original Gatchaman suits from the 1972 anime, right down to the characters yelling "bird go" when they activated their powers.
