I've been told to watch FMA:B for a while now, and I just, really don't want to watch it. It just doesn't appeal to me.
Do any of y'all have an anime like this?

I don't think there's anything I outright refuse to watch. I do put things off for a very long time though.

No not really. But I’ve thought about watching evangelion for ages but just never feel like watching it.

dealing with re:zero being shoved down my throat, being praised as god's gift to anime, for six straight months, was incredibly annoying, and for a while it was on my never watch list. but at this point i'd say it's off of that list, i'll watch it at some point. currently, there's no anime i refuse to watch, and it's very hard for anime to gain that status

There are lots of Anime that I refuse to watch.

Besides not really being into most modern Anime, I generally refuse to watch anything with a seinen/josei tag, or anything with an ecchi, horror, psychological, thriller or dementia tag.

When it comes to newer stuff, I really have to search hard to find something that I'll actually watch.

Any anime from ecchi, shounen ai, shoujo ai, yaoi or yuri genre.

Whatever happens, happens.

idk, anything I think looks like shit or just doesn't appeal to me? What good does it do to name a random example when there's probably thousands of shows like that out there?

There's nothing I'd outright refuse to watch, avoiding certain genres, studios or whatever seems needlessly limiting. Some stuff is very low priority that I'm realistically never going to watch, but nothing is set in stone.

Jojo.
I don't like jojo's art style and it is full of the kind of trash that i cannot stand.
I saw 2 episodes and some clips of it, such a waste of time imho.

Any very long running anime like LoGH or HxH for now at least.

Other than that, shoujo-ai/yuri, just not enjoyable for me. Would also add shounen-ai, but it actually wasn't too bad from what I've seen

I refuse to watch the fate series because I don't like the MC.

I also try to avoid yaoi and reverse harem anime.

Lol, same here.

Those two are probably the only two franchises I have absolute zero interest in watching, and for the exact same reasons.

For me, it's Detective Conan.
Shit's even longer than One Piece, if you can believe it.
Plus, the character designs/art style just doesn't appeal to me at all and, from what i've read, the "main" mystery of the series will probably never be solved, for the sake of keeping the show's episodic case-of-the-week formula.

Jojo is a show I can't stand.

A friend to me, awlays trys to get me to watch the show and he links be fights scenes with more. But, I'm just like No, No, Nopp, that's not for me.

If I watched Jojo right now, I woud start up Masterchief on another monitor or something else and ignor the show to 100%.

It's not a show that is appealing for me.

With respect to the pedo bait thing, did any of you get those vibes from Wataten last season? Obviously there's more loli fanservice even in other shows like NGNL, but I just found the whole thing deeply uncomfortable to watch while the reddit community praised its name

This makes me sad. I love Jojo's art style, it tries to closely resemble the manga. And the manga goes back many years.
I can't really blame people that hate it, at first I hated it too.

Anyway, i try not to rule out any anime provided it has at least a 7 rating. The higher the more likely I am to watch.

Basically every shounen anime ever. The genre doesn't appeal to me, and it never has. Tried watching DBZ, HxH, Bleach, and Naruto.......dropped them all after like 2 episodes, because I just couldn't stand it. The only shounen anime I enjoyed was Assassination Classroom. Everything else, I couldn't imagine myself willingly sitting through that garbage.

At the moment I am refusing to watch One Piece despite its popularity and success because of how incredibly long it is. I'm trying to cut down on my watching as it is and a show with 900+ episodes is not gon help with that.

That and Angel Beats. Not that its long, but I watched the first episode and it just didn't do it for me. Anyone else feel the same way about it?
It's not like I like anime or anything.

I avoid watching all the anime with more than 24 episodes. Watching a large number of short anime sounds more attractive to me.

Quite a few actually. FMAB i might actually watch though.

In general, stuff that I won't watch falls into one or more of the following categories:

1. I don't like the art style.

These include Air/Clannad/Kanon, Utena, Code Geass, and others. I know I'm passing up a bunch of acclaimed series but that doesn't really matter to me.

2. Crazy wacky anime humor.

This is just not my thing. Examples include Lucky Star, Excel Saga, and Pop Team Epic, among others.

3. Premise feels edgy or overly stylized, characters feel like assholes, or something along these lines.

This relatively vague category includes such shows as Death Note, Code Geass, Attack on Titan, Higurashi, Elfen Lied, Perfect Blue, Space Dandy, No Game No Life, Assassination Classroom, and others.

4. Fanservice.

I'm just not a fan of (sexual) fanservice as a focus. In general, I can ignore it if there's something bigger going on that lets me pay attention to that and gloss over the fanservice, but if there isn't much more than fanservice or it's overwhelming enough then I draw the line. This is probably the biggest category, and includes such shows as DearS, Valkyrie Drive, High School DxD, Keijo, Kill la Kill, KonoSuba (whose focus isn't on fanservice but comedy, but whose comedy does seem to consist of a lot of fanservice gags), Strike Witches, *monogatari, and many others.
