The guys from Green Green NEARLY made me drop it, nfi why I did not. That was back before I started dropping anime. The 'friends' from Maison Ikkoku very nearly made me drop it was well, though again I persisted. Those are the closest I have come to dropping a show specifically because of characters.

-Chibi Usa of Sailor Moon SuperS.


I haven't watched all of SuperS subbed yet, but everyone seems to absolutely hate her. I think she's alright in previous seasons, but practically takes up the entire seasons here. Like she's a main focus of attention. Which is just stupid.

Abel Nightroad from Trinity Blood. I really need a strong main character or at least brilliant art or plot to keep me in tension while watching anime.
But Abel is such a dumbass. I just couldn't take it.

I can't get myself to watch what I'm missing of Shakugan no Shana and Zero no Tsukaima, either finish Toradora, those over-tsundere got my nerves off (and I like tsunderes, just not the URUSAI URUSAI URUSAI type). Also having the same voice actress for all of them doesn't help me.

I dropped Fairy Tail because I just couldn't manage to like any of the characters and watching long series when you're not attached to any character is a pain.

Every character from most ecchi I've seen. Who needs personality when you have boobs and a short skirt (or a harem).

Tsunderes.

I avoid watching anime with tsundere female character in it.

Most recently, it was Mahiru from Kamisama Dolls. She appeared just three episodes before the end, but after watching only one episode of her being an insufferable bitch, I couldn't watch any more episodes with her in it.

Also, in general whenever there is an overly violent bitchy tsundere character, she often makes me drop the show unless there is something else keeping me in it.

This. I always try to stick it out with tsundere series if I'm ever unfortunate enough to start one, but they always make it so hard for me to make it through each episode. xP

About Mirai Nikki, If you get a diary that can predict your own future, the first thing you do is go to a bet house, or at least not being so pussy...There are characters that are not brave but intelligent, there are characters that are brave but no intelligent, there are characters that are both (strange thing by the way) and after is this guy, who's a coward and an idiot, that only gets goods mark because of his "future diary". Oh my god, seriously, the power to predict your future and only uses it to avoid bullying (I was kinda surprise about it, the series put in a normal place to be bullied because of your good marks in an exam) and to get better marks...seriously, I hate this character...After you there is a yandere who is the idol of the school, ok this seems a lot of difficult to solve, but even with that, he is just a pussy.
Unless the guy is a genius, which he isn't, then he'd use the diary like any normal kid would do. I say genius, because he'll likely get caught in your bet house suggestion, then they'd steal his phone, use it instead. Actually, I was surprised the teacher didn't catch him cheating. It should be pretty easy since the guy was doing an awful job at trying to be discrete. It's ridiculously easy to criticize others for their action in an impossibly hypothetical scenario, but when it came down to it, his actions are not really that unrealistic. Annoying for you, maybe, but plausible.

What was hilarious was that he could drive. That was some lolwat material since there was never any preamble that he could do so. Yet he drives like a pro in one of those action film car chases. :/

Almost all the characters from Shakugan no Shana S2 besides Shana.
Their personalities are just boring.

I can't do anything, so I just casually indulge in life.

Haru from Accel World.

Couldn't stand seeing a fat blob 1/4 the size of other characters while the other characters are normal. Also couldn't stand the fact that this blob somehow became a love interest. I wouldn't mind it as much if Accel World didn't take itself seriously and was a highschool comedy where fat blobs were the norm, but sadly that's not the case.

Serena Tsukino=sailor moon

I do like the series, but it was way to much focus on her and her happiness, and the other scouts were left just to be her servants.

Yuuji from Shakugan no Shana this is the most stupidest anime character I have ever seen in my whole time watching anime. He never notices that the 2 main girls love him in the most obvious points when they`re jealous. He made me drop it atm i`m just baring with it on season 2. He bugs me so bad that I want to throw my new computer out of the window. On the side of that he doesent even show any emotions AT ALL...

I have yet to drop a show for good, but some MCs single-handedly made me hate/dislike shows that I wouldn't have otherwise.

Those three perverts in Green Green weren't main characters, but I just can't go without mentioning them. They got at least as much on-screen time as the actual MC so they should pass anyway.

The little kid in Kanokon. He never did anything in the show except being a pussy and get sexually assaulted. Oh, and his voice.

Some other mentions, but not nearly as extreme
Elfen Lied
Amagami SS+ plus
Final Approach
Zero no Tsukaima (the last few seasons anyway)

Ahhahaha "All he did was get sexually assaulted." That bugged me that he didnt show interest besides pity if that was me woow.. And his art style is idiotic considering he looks like a lolicon or a chibi version but is a damn highschooler.

The main character of Highschool DxD sort of. After Seikon no Qwaser i felt i should give ecchi series a chance before ignoring them completely. I watched the first episode disturbed by the lead. I know it's normal for a teenage boy to be kind of a pervert, but he was just terrible...ugh. Disgusted me.
In the end i used my hate for him as a reason to drop it next to it's stupid-sounding plot and the fact that i couldn't really watch it in my room (i live with siblings) considering all the fanservice and nudity.

Fuko Ibuki of Clannad. I don't see a reason why she exists. It made the anime confusing, in my own point of view.

Yuki is definitely the reason why I've had Mirai Nikki on hold for like over half a year.
I had Bokura ga Ita on hold for a long ass time too before I finished because of the female mc.

I just spent the day watching the first season, and by golly she was a fun character. Especially after the wedding.


I can't think of a circumstance where i've actually dropped a show because of a character. It's usually just because the show sucks.

I was probably about to drop it soon anyway due to all its fillers and no plot.

I don't even remember the name of the characters.

All I know is, I saw pirates in Naruto one day shooting cannon balls at Naruto's small ship, and I hit the exit button on my browser. Too bad. I really liked Lee.

Shu from Guilty Crown. Although there is a plethora of reasons to drop Guilty Crown, I think he was the driving force in it finally getting dropped.

You guys should say why they made you drop the show in a spoiler or something if you didn't. I'm curious as to why because I have never hated a character or show enough for me to drop it. I feel its unfair and i might be dropping a potentially good show but i might just be too patient.

Zero inspired me to drop Vampire Knight.

Most other cases in which I dropped a series was because I disliked every character. Even one good character can be enough for me to watch a series, assuming they appear often enough.

The main characters of Mirai Nikki and Neon Genesis Evangelion really made me want to drop those anime, though. Or kill them. But the other characters helped me endure them until the end.

This is probably the main reason I dropped it too, though I didn't really like the plot all that much either. Also:

Haruhi made me drop that melancholy show.

I have it on stalled, but Amagami SS's male lead made me do so. And other than Monster, I'm not guaranteed to actually go back to anything on my stalled list.
