Like you really enjoyed an anime until you watched an episode so bad or there's an event in it that felt like a punch in the gut and it almost made you dropped the anime?

Monster hunter stories ride on when Cheval change his personality after the incident of the Nargacuga. After that I dropped the anime.

Eureka 7 - The Soccer Match Episode.

well, tbf, I already felt E7 was going downhill at that point so it's not really like it ruined the series for me. I still enjoyed what came after that, but surely the Soccer Match Episode was quite an unnecessary, ridiculous, pointless episode that shouldn't have been there that late into the series. I wish I'd skipped such a mess.

Yeah, the last episode of a lot of 12 episodes animes can be so shitty that I have to lower the score like 4 or more points just for that.

And talkin about bad episodes I don't really remember them xd, since if I think that the episode is a big shit I will start playing with the phone or doing anything else but definetly not watch the episode.

Episode 3 or 4 of Re:Creators.
I liked it quite a lot, but one of the early episodes is so fucking slow and is essentially only an infodump based almost on nothing.

There are like 10^10 better ways to do that episode without making my balls shatter into a fine dust.

The same goes for episode 2/3 of Toaru Kagaku no Railgun.
I liked Index (and I read the novels) but didn't want to read the manga of Railgun, so I simply went for the anime.
Oh boy, I see that you have to change the formula a bit to suit another cast of characters, but you can't make someone who is in for cool shonen powers and magic bear the burden of fucking 13yo (not so cute) girls doing cute things, with a lesbian sexual offender as the perfect topping.

I REALLY can't stress enough how much that start made me drop the series for like months, which is bad considering that the first arc of Railgun is one of the best stories in the Toaru franchise as a whole for me.

That episode where Asuna almost got tentacle raped in the Fairy Dance arc in SAO. The entire Fairy Dance arc almost made me dropped SAO.

Ouran High School Host Club - on the whole, one of my favorite animes, but the scene in one episode where Kyouya pretends he's about to rape Haruhi left a really bad taste in my mouth.

I'm sure there are a lot of anime I could say but at this time I don't remember any of them. I’m sure one is Mirai Nikki.

That didn't happen in the show. It was in the sequel movie, and he doesn't molest her.

For me it was the Endless Eight episodes from The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. I didn’t watch all eight, only two or three (I can’t remember) but it left me feeling so confused as to why they did it and honestly it kinda pissed me off.

I’m glad I finished Haruhi though. I still think it’s pretty great.

Episode 15 or 16 of Railgun. Why someone like Kamijou Touma exists in that anime?

The last episode of Dororo was underwhelming. Made me take a point off the score. Strangely enough, I had no problems with the quality-dip episodes towards the middle that most people had issues with.

The last or second to last (can't remember) episode of little witch academia was pretty bad. Also the deadly worker strike episode from gundam iron blooded orphans was a very poor attempt at social commentary and the point which the show started going downhill.
I really enjoy those "helicopter ride" memes

I cant say I fully enjoy GTO since I found it just fine, but Kanzaki arc almost made me drop it. totally awful. good thing it redeemed later, but damage was already done.

To Love-ru 1st season, while being entertaining and such, had an episode that almost made me drop it, even though I'm a completionist: that fucking episode with the female alien wolf that fell in love with Rito's best friend. That was some of the cringiest shit I've ever seen.

I mean, I indeed love TLR, but... Holy shit.

Probably get some stick for saying this but episode 58 and 59 in JoJo stardust crusaders was atrocious. Was a good idea but executed so poorly. I believe it is easily the worst episodes in JoJo.

The first thing that comes to my mind is episode 6 of Attack on Titan season 3 part 2 title Midnight Sun. I absolutely don't like that part of the writing and it almost ruined the season 3 part 2 for me.

Episode 8 from Shoujo Kageki. They revealed an incredible plot twist only for it to be resolved super easily in the subsequent episodes and have no impact at all on the story. Made me wonder why they even did it and also ruined my enjoyment of the show.

I wasn't gonna drop Uta Kata due to an episode, but I was conflicted on what to rate the anime after seeing scenes like the second half of episode 6.
It wasn't too terrible, but just... completely unnecessary and really dumb lol

Cowboy Bebop was never my type of show to begin with, but in the episode with the kid in the wheelchair, Spike makes a decision I thought was terribly inconsistent with how he was characterized in earlier episodes.



At that point I only continued watching until Ed was introduced because I wanted to at least see all 4 main characters.

I thought the pacing got really wonky in the second to last episode

As far is remember, no. One single episode cannot make the difference, unless half of the cast fucking dies there.

Probably, but can't remember which show apart from Oregairu S2's last ep. Dropped a few points because of it, fuck that cliffhanger.

I'm assuming this means anime we ended up completing.

1. Attack on Titan in the first half of season 3 when they spent like 3 episodes talking about kings and watching the slug titan crawl around the ground.

2. Darling in the Franxx when they revealed that the bad guys were actually ghost dinosaur alines.

3. Fate stay night UBW. I think like episode 6 when Tohsaka was just being too tsundere and not wanting to work with shirou. I dropped the show and gave it a 4. 1 year later I went back and watched it and ended up giving the first season an 8.

4. Mob Psycho 100 episode 1. Reigen was so annoying at first and I couldn't get into it. Glad I stuck with it.

5. Golden Time: LIKE EVERY EPISODE IN THE MIDDLE WHERE THE MAIN GUY'S MELODRAMATIC ASS IS CRYING ABOUT HIS MEMORY. I really should have dropped it tbh.

Another episodes past 4 episodes. Starts out interesting, then it slowly becomes cliché horror with over-the-top deaths and stupid logic the characters use, though I was too new at that time to even know what is considered a cliché or bad trait.

There was not much that made me consider actually dropping an anime, but the one that made me actually drop an anime was Kore Wa Zombie Desu Ka? with the abusive female cast and beta MC through five goddamn episodes, some can laugh at it, I can only get really annoyed by it.

Last 2 episodes of Neon Genesis Evangelion, it surely turned me off and unfortunately I give 7/10 this anime because of last 2 episode.
I didn't watch End of Evangelion yet because of being demotivated. But I was super hyped about this anime.

The 17th episode of Soul eater. Yeah, the Excalibur one. (We can exclude the fact that the series' ending left a sour taste in my mouth.)
