The only things that really stop me are:

1.) Annoying male/female leads that complain about something all the time.
2.) Unnecessary fanservice.
3.) If the plot is going nowhere, or there is no plot. (In some cases, if the anime is enjoyable enough, I can handle an anime without a certain plot.)
4.) Bad artwork.
5.) Exaggerated hair.

6.) Male leads that complain in every episode that they need to become stronger for some girl they love, and they NEVER DO.

Dont touch me I'm in despair.

Hmm, if the timeline suddenly changes without warning, and it takes 3 episodes to get back to characters you recognize, I'll drop it.

1.) Annoying female characters who cry 24/7.
2.) Bad artwork.
3.) Cliche story-lines.
4.) When the main character is weak and/or helpless and can't do anything for themselves.
5.) Too much fanservice.
6.) Super cutsy-wootsy girls with annoying voices.
7.) When the guy characters are too "manly".

Lack of plot movement or really just the same thing time and time again, unless it has something that is just going to hook me I rather not bother with it like Higurashi no koro ni and all its seasons. I just really don't care for that show
I got no time to do what I dont want to do

If it's boring, complicated story line that never ends, and makes me fall asleep it's an instant drop... idk i'm pretty open minded as long as it's entertaining i'm all good..

Bad art, I don't really mind the animation as long it's not too crappy
Extreme tsundere
Stupid plot
Fanservice in a ecchi type show is fine, but I hate it when random action shows have fanservice (Guilty Crown). It sickens me.
Bad voices as leads
Shows past 100 eps
Cutesy girls that are annoying as heck

- Annoying male character who just keeps complaining e.g Yuuki (Mirai Nikki) and Tsuna (KHR)
- Main character is a female (Don't mean heroine) I mean the whole thing is around a female.
- Excessive fanservice. (I'd watch hentai if I wanted that)
- Harem, when the guy doesn't choose 1 girl in the end specifically.
- Slow pacing. I mean pacing of short anime not the 30+ ones but the ones which are 24 episodes yet the pacing is so fking slow, there's nothing in the episode.

If i like the anime that im watching i won't stop watching it unless:

- The writers become lazy or rushed.

- Something gets added and destroys the whole story.

- A character i loved dies (Might just depress me only)

- Some asshole spoils it for me.

being boring. having a majority of the characters act very annoying.
and one of my biggest ones is long runners, some of them r pretty alright, but i can never commit to most animes longer than 50 eps, theres always that other anime i hear about that i just want to pick up right then and there and then i get another recomendation and i just never end up gettign back into it. the only one i rly care about getting further into is gintama, but i just cant bring myself to fill in that 200 ep gap from where im at and the eps that have recently aired >.<

Seriously? You're missing out on a LOT of great animes that haven't been dubbed, you know.

More tits in my face than story.
Long winded talks during fights.
Idiotic juvenile humor (Mostly in shounen).
Wimpy lead characters without good supporting characters to make up for his/her fail (Especially if it is not a psychological anime.)
Deviating from the manga/visual novel/light novel. (Only if I have seen the original.)
Excessive fillers.
Main female characters who are only there because they are a tsundere. (AKA pointless cliche fanservice.)
Offensive racism or nationalistic attitude when not used for comedy purposes. (If it isn't funny it's just offensive.)
"A normal high school boy/girl gets into X situation and meets Y girl/boy/animal girl thing"
Harems that serve no purpose other than fanservice.


All these things can make me drop or stop watching an anime.

More tits and ass than actual story
A male main character that even the girliest girl can beat up
Harem
Excessive pointless fanservice
Annoying main character with no side characters good enough to make up for it
Male main character that has epic powers/fighting skills but is scared to use them for some stupid reason or afraid to fight

I love comedy but not parody-based. Lucky Star is my example. Oh, non-anime example would be Tropic Thunder, I didn't understand most of the comedy in the movie. So when there are a lot of comedy I don't understand in the anime, I'll stop watching it.

Fan service galore, I don't like unnecessary fan service.

Oversized boobs. It is acceptable if the body is proportional to its size, but thin/average girls with huge boobs? Not my taste...

There's nothing that really comes to mind... Just, uh, general suckiness?
As long as there's something that makes the anime worth watching, I can bear through it. I don't mind if annoying/bland characters if the story is good, nor do I mind a mediocre story if the characters are awesome. Hell, I don't really even mind a lot of ecchi. Bring on the boobs and panties; I can take it! (... To an extent, of course. Nothing bordering hentai.)
