I read your tags for Hayate no Gotoku and I genuinely believe that you should be put down for calling Hina a witch. Shame on you, you filthy human being.

In all seriousness, I don't understand how you loved School Rumble and can't finish Gintama. You're already halfway through, and the second half is MUCH better so it's worth another look.

You seem to stop short at finishing shows or give up at them at the start.
Which is, I dunno, unproductive.
At the very least, give Seitokai no Ichizon and Asura Cryin' another chance.
That's all I guess.

Darker than black S2 - If you like action animes you need to watch this :/

And you should reconsider Angel Beats , I wasn't a fan of all the randomness either but the ending totally redeemed itself for me

I also think you should re-consider Gosick , the slow type of mystery animes like it is I wasn't a fan of really however I did slowly get sucked in throughout it from Victorique's cuteness, I would say the ending kind of makes up for it as well, Although throughout I will admit it lacked the amount of action I usually look for :P

Aw, no dropped list.

@pantyshots

Keroro Gunsou, definitely. Such a fun show.
But since you gave it a 9 I assume you'll pick it back up someday?

Haven't finished Lucky Star yet and I don't remember much about the first episodes but it was amusing for me. People say the first 3 episodes weren't the best but after that it's all ok so give it another go I guess. I still need to finish it though.

Kiss x Sis OVA. Not the TV series, but the OVA! Kiss x Sis OVA was awesomely amazing...! :D

For the person who posts after me, don't even bother and just comment on the dude above me. I barely drop Animes and the ones I did drop, I don't think there is any hope for them.

^Just droped 2, i didnt watched them, one of them is on my PTW tho. So i cant judge.

@belatkuro
- Kamisama Dolls - its a good anime, dont go by the crowd.
- One Piece - what a waste, try to watch more then 20 episodes, at least 50 and you will like it.
The others are well droped.

All of your droppings are understandable: no need to bother with Shugo Chara and Naruto (+ Shippuden). I've put Bleach on hold, too.
I also understand why someone would drop Seikon No Qwaser: the manga is great, the anime is not.

You have Higurashi on hold. I'd tell you to finish it, but I realize that it's not for everyone.

Seriously... not even going to bother. You seem to hate everything that's shounen, old, hyped or just has a bad animation.

So, every of the shows you dropped are like that...

Anyway, One Piece is pretty good.

Yugioh Duel Monsters- I mean come on that show is awesome and you are already half way through. I am only on episode 17 because the site I was watching it got shut down. Come on you can finish it lol!
Skip me since I don't drop shows I watch them even if they suck in the hopes the will get better.

Dropping Dragon Ball and Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood is perfectly understandable.

I'd suggest you to keep watching Yu-Gi-Oh.

@ Tiago97

If you're "not even going to bother", don't post at all, moron.

For whoever is next: if my dropped list upsets you, like it did with the shounen fanboy above, comment on my on-hold list.

I know its not on my list but you should pick up Doraemon again. To get a full appreciation for it though you need to also watch the prequel as well as all the movies.

Perhaps block-head comedy just isn't your thing, but School Rumble is an endearing show... and honestly it is the only thing you dropped that I would recommend giving a second chance.

@Kamui-Yui

Trigun and Usagi Drop are high quality shows with hearts of gold... I almost can't believe you dropped them... in any case they deserve a second chance.

Inuyasha - Even though it seems like an overrated anime (or maybe it is overrated), it's worth watching, especially with InuYasha: Kanketsu-hen/Final Act waiting for you ahead. You can google for the fillers episodes list if you wish to avoid fillers.
Everything else seems drop worthy.

I'd suggest you to reconsider Aoi Bungaku, Requiem For The Phantom, Sailor Moon, Excel Saga, Ghost Hound, Deadman Wonderland, Kurokami, Great Teacher Onizuka, Last Exile, and Shin-chan.

Don't bother with the rest.

If you watched the original, why not watch the remake since it follow the manga to a T. They speed through the beginning quickly since BONES knew everyone had already watched the original and didn't want to bore people.

Kaichou wa Maid-sama! you're almost done might as well finish it. i thought it was a pretty good romance besides the fact that it is a shoujou. i'm pretty sure it's worth the wait. :D

Wow some awesome shows on your drop list.
Honey & Clover is an amazing show
Arakawa was pretty good aswell
Kanon, Air .. wow 2 pretty good shows (not an KyoAni fan i guess? xD)
School rumble was an pretty good comedy show, but i guess if you wouldn't like the style ..
Probably missed some, but the rest of them is pretty much understandable (or i could understand if someone dropped them).

Yeah... your drop list seems about right. Though White Album wasn't TOO bad in my opinion.

Again, just ignore me guys. I like participating in this topic but I don't really have any dropped Animes of my own that I would reconsider. xD

How can I ignore you? That would be mean, besides, you just took the guy I would have taken, so I'll take both of you...

That's surprising, if I wanted to, I could make a case for both the things you did drop. But Hourou Musuko was just a bit dull, where as Oretachi no Tsubasa... Whilst I gave it a 4 in the end, I didn't actually think it was that bad. I actually thought it got good in the episode 7-9 range. Yes, the ending was shit, and the utterly blatant and sometimes disgusting fan-service was bad, but I think you could reconsider, if only to just give up on it anyway.

@hxkclan

God, you don't drop much either do you? I haven't seen anything you've dropped, so I can't comment.

Why on earth would you drop Rio? There was just so much drama and tension in that series.

You should definitely give ARIA a chance. But starting from the beginning.
It might not have a bunch of action, but it''s a really beautiful series.

You liked K-On! well enough, there's no reason why you wouldn't like ARIA.

Claymore. two more episodes to finish and you dropped it; kind of counter productive to do so for such an awesome series. even if you've read the manga and know that it strays you should still finish claymore, it's a really goods show.

Only School Rumble - I don't remember too much about the very begining, it's one of those that only gets better.
The main character is very ace.

@ Queen_Stars :

Bakuman - I came close to dropping this show a million and two times, but I think that towards the later half it gets more interesting and the second season definitely seems more "interesting" in comparison with the first. This isn't really a show you can just marathon through, but it's still worth finishing.

I dont understand how you could watch 8 episodes of mm and drop it I dont have it in me to do that after commiting so much to an anime.

Other than that most of them deserve to be dropped

I would say watch higurashi i guess it really does get alot better and starts to make some sense

Dance in the Vampire Bund - Not sure if you dropped this thinking "crap twilight has reached the anime world", but it definitely is above that. It's worth watching, has a great story line, some awesome action scenes, as well as some romance.

@ Queen_Stars
Don't stop tagging stuff, I laughed so hard at like 90% of them XD

@ Angel_Beats
You gave Clannad a 9 and Clannad After Story a 10, so I think you should reconsider Air & Kannon (2006) considering they have the same artwork same type of story line and I'm pretty sure the same writer.

Elfen Lied is really great once you get a couple more episodes in so its worth another shot.

Kaze no Stigma Same thing, it picks up a lot later on, and to be hones I liked it more than Elfen Lied
Your tags also made me crack up haha

@ Aruetha
1 dropped ;3
Pick it up again its a great series

Anime_Name said:And this is why this thread exists. Hopefully people will be willing to give a series a second shot and put aside whatever turned them off in the first place. It's pretty arrogant to be willing to give advice but not take it yourself.

If you were to go through and read the entire thread you would have noticed that I have taken the advice of many and moved a few anime out of my dropped list. I was simply explaining why I haven't for this anime, I never said it was bad - I just didn't enjoy it. I don't plan on doing something that is meant to be fun (watching anime) when I don't enjoy it, that seems really dumb.

Except that is precisely what you claim to have done already but are now saying that "old animation" is the line in the sand that must not be crossed. Not wanting to watch classic anime because of old animation sounds like a stupid and petty reason to me.


I do watch some classic animation, I just choose not to watch other because I don't enjoy an aspect of it (usually the artwork for older anime). It's the same for newer stuff, sometimes I choose not to watch one simply because I don't like the artwork, now I realize not everyone does this but I'm not everyone.

Consider this, you probably like music but probably don't listen to every genre of music even if within genres that you don't enjoy there are hits that topped the charts and are classics. Just because the majority says those songs/genres are amazing you don't listen to them simply because you don't enjoy them.

Why should I watch something meant to entertain me when it doesn't entertain me?

(apologies for the rant-like post to any others reading this)

Baccano! i did read your comments on how you didn't like the setting, but you did watch almost all the series already. you should go finish the last 3 episodes unless you dread the whole series on a whole then keep it dropped. :D

I already dropped it once before at ep 1, but picked it up because about 8 people told me to between this forum and the original forum that I made. While watching it i found myself easily distracted and tbh it was quite boring

I'm just not a fan of that time period and place is all =P

For the guy above me I've only watched Desert Punk in your dropped list. Overall, it's awesome crude humor, but it doesn't have the best storyline or plot. Only anime worth watching in English really.

I'll reconsider anything as long as it's for a good reason :P, I listed my dislikes about the anime.

I'll check out desert punk again and see if it captures my attention. As for your list I saw a few that I personally enjoyed quite a lot, here they are:
Casshern Sins - It definitely has a somewhat depressing mood to it considering the planet is in decay, but once you get further into it some truths get uncovered and the main character continues to develop throughout the entire series which is quite interesting to watch, you will find some nice action, but not much romance (but that doesn't mean there isn't any at all haha)
FLCL - Pretty well recognized as being a good series, its definitely got a different feel to it which I can see how some people may lothe but if you don't hate the style then its pretty awesome and worth the watch (and if you hate it you only wasted 6 episodes worth of time instead of 12...24...)
Ga-Rei: Zero - Your note said something about helplessness, I'm guessing you're referring to the main character Kagura Tsuchimiya who seemed helpless in the beginning, but later on... heh yeah its got some amazing action, as well as a great plot.

Those are the only three that I'd say are worth watching, the rest of your list I haven't seen or completely agree with your decision.
