Is there a trope or cliche in an anime that annoys you to the point you'll drop the anime immediately when you see it?
I'm not easily annoyed like that, so I tend to stick to whatever I watch.

Here comes the "too much fanservice" crowd

Do we really have to keep baiting them?

@EcchiKingMamster, it's an honest question.
I'm honestly not trying to bait anyone here.

I dropped Re:Zero within 5 minutes, but that's mainly because I already knew where it was going and wasn't interested.

Outside of that I rarely drop shows.

Uh, just loli fanservice, the ones involving young characters. I don't want that stuff near me.

Yet I give a chance to every show, I will never immediately drop a series (unless it has what I just said, whoa contradicting myself there lol), I will progress through it and if it does nothing to impress me, farewell~

Just a shit story really. I can push through fanservice, annoying characters and a slow story, but no story or a shit one is just terrible.

If it bores the shit out of me. I couldn't get past the first episode of Gamers cause the whole thing was just "they're teenagers......and they're playing video games.....wooooooooo"

Specific Tropes? I hate half-assed forth wall breaking and yanderes but idk if I'd drop a show for that.

Sexual elements I dislike. Explicit sexualized nudity, yaoi/yuri, (actual) incest, sexualized children, etc. could all potentially cause an instant drop.

Other than that, I guess shorts that are clearly aiming to disgust and disturb could potentially get an instant drop, though I don't think I've ever seen a TV series that I would put in that category.

That's all that comes to mind off the top of my head.

I've only started dropping anime in the last 2-3 months so I can't really say I have anything like that yet. I don't think there's anything that can make me drop it in a snap moment, but if I see something becoming just plain dull without any clear way to fix itself anytime soon or if something seems to be heading down a path I can't see myself enjoying then I'll call it quits

Too much comedy. Like the first 20 episodes of Katekyo Hitman Reborn. It just totally kills the mood. Haven't dropped it yet, it turned out to be a great anime.

Not always, but a whimpy MC has caused that effect, the two cases I can remember were Kekkai Sensen and Durara!

Also incest, but I haven't encountered it very often.

- Poorly justified and easily solvable drama just for the sake of the plot.

- Anime that has gaps in time every single episode making the story feel clunky.
One at a time!

What does that have anything to do with dropping an anime?
If I had low standards I wouldn't drop anime or the other way around?
I just feel proud with myself when I finish an anime.

If it's boring as hell like Fate Apocrypha.

If the show is short on ideas.

If nothing happens in the show.

If the show has bad characters.

@Tapertrain I don't want to later regret not watching the anime. I typically don't watch anything that bad though. It feels nice when you finish an anime since you have one less to watch now (though for every anime I watch I add like 5 more on).

That kind of time? I don't have any friends, any clubs I'm in, I sneak some time in at school, don't feel the need to study, get all homework finished pretty early, stay up late at night, and I have a lot of free time. So it is quite possible.

Anime is my main hobby and talent. If you take anime away I will pretty much be depressed.

Nothing really, I may drop love triangles and other overly complicated romances if they do not interest me aside from that aspect, but even then this is not an insta drop. I drop most things out of boredom or simple lack of interest more than anything else.

This happened to me with occult nine. I was actually kind of interested in what this show could offer before it started airing but when the waitress came in on the first episode and her tits were the size of 2 humans put together. That immediately made me drop the show.

I'm not a stranger to fan service or sexual content and honestly it doesn't really bother me that much, but the one thing I really just can't stand are extremely oversize tits, you know the ones that cover half their body size, where they drag down to their belly buttons type of stuff.... yeahhhh just extreme turn off for me, in terms of wanting to continue a show, even if there is something worth watching there.

If the focus of a show is on a romantic relationship which features incest, I usually won't even start the show.
If it's actually dropping, I'll mostly only drop if I can't find all the episodes.

Unrealistic Emotional Responses (Yukiteru in Mirai Nikki), I tortured myself through it and ended up hating just how unbelievable his emotions were towards the situations.
Abusive Perverted Males (Kenzen Robo Daimidaler), When it no longer becomes comedic perv and moves towards physical assault.

I have zero tolerance when it comes to animes filled with bad CGI. I know this may sound very superficial, but if the movements are not fluent in the usage of CGI then everything just come off as rather jarring and it does not make much coherence visual sense whille watching, to me at least it doesn't.

Bad characters,

I dropped Baccano almost instantly after seeing the MC. It was one of the most horrible experiences in my life. Didn't even bother to add it to the list. Probably a waste, many people say it's worth it.

Also "science" in anime is pretty annoying especially when the author probably didn't make it past mid school.

Exaggerated Comic Relieve
Generic character and animation.
Ridicolous fanservice that doesnt make any sense
Cliche
NTR..?

I have alot of dropped shows but that doesnt mean the show itself is bad, its just i am not intersted to pick it up or planning to watch it.

Some Lolis. Sexualized lolis and a cast full of almost loli girls with too high pitched voices. And everything like that.
And sometimes a guy surrounded by girls without other male characters on his side, when that thing isn't even a harem.

Very abusive and just disgusting relationships, which are portrayed as completely fine... or not that bad at least.
Something like these Yaois with a boy, who looks like (or is... especially mentally lol) 12 with an older guy. Same for that Yuri cover I have seen. That girl looked like a kid, who was touched by an older woman.
All that things. Stay away from me with such atrocities. X.x

Other things:
Art style and character designs I don't like. Something like Danganronpa. I'm sorry, I can't look at that...

Too many extreme reactions like Kakegurui. I'm sorry, that's just not an anime for me. ^^"

Immediately? Idk, the closest thing I have to an immediate drop that I feel satisfied with is PASWG, which was just 13 minutes of annoyance and a quick recognition of "these things that are annoying me are what this show is and it won't stop annoying me."

There's stuff I dropped early on but I never feel satisfied with it because I can't escape the feeling I never gave it a fair chance, which irks me >_>

Idk, I checked my drop list and none of them were dropped "immediately" because of something, I managed to get passed at least a single episode of them, they bored me to death, hence I dropped it.

Bad CGI or Art probably can make me drop a show immediately if I found it to be that appalling.

For regular anime, only boredom.

For Hentai only:
-If there's unconsensual sex like rape, blackmail, etc. that's usually and insta-drop unless I am interested in the plot or what happens to the characters.
-If there's some creepy fetish(es) I don't like, I'm not going to watch it either.

A show disguised as something it isn't in an attempt to lure in more viewers.

Having a promising set up but it's going nowhere; loads of boring, content-less filler episodes to milk a popular franchise.

Characters doing the same stuff again and again, without there being any kind of progress or distraction.
