I've watched several anime for no other reason than I have hentai of the characters, and wanted to find out the context behind the sex. :P Especially embarassing when the hentai in question is lolicon!

If it becomes apparent that an anime is going to overuse the 'Violence is Always OK (and 'FUNNY') When Woman on Man' trope, I'll often drop it minutes into the show. Also if the show is heavily censored, though I don't think either is really that stupid of a reason.

I stopped watching Arawaka Under the Bridge on the first season episode 1-4 or something because it annoyed me that he didn't want to be there but didn't GO HOME. xD

I started watching K-on because of how black Mio's hair was on a 3d mouse-pad I saw...

Well, I decided to watch Ore no Imouto and Dog Days because I knew that I wouldn't like them and wanted a good rage. I ended up liking Dog Days, though. Ore no Imouto did a good job at making me rage.

Refused to watch Kaiji because of that sharp nose. XDD

Refused to watch LoGH because of those people who are saying it is the best ever repeated a million times and comparing them to the rest of the animes making them as rip-off... -puts on flame suit- don't hate me :(

lol. I've done that, sort of. Not hentai, but fanfiction (although sometimes I guess they're not very different). I've read fanfiction of a series that I was unfamiliar with once or twice, and thought, "Hey, this series seems like it could be interesting..." :p A backwards way of going about things, but whatever. :)

I agree with you about female violence towards male characters. I don't see how it's funny, and that would also make me consider dropping it if it happened frequently enough.

I watched Yosuga no Sora because I thought twincest was funny.

I dropped Astarotte no Omocha 'cause it was really squicky when you think about it...

I started Denpa teki na Kanojo simply because saying the word "Denpa" made me giggle.

I dropped Seto no Hanayome because the male lead was shorter than the female lead. At least...I THINK that's why I dropped it...

I watched Murder Princess because the title amused me.

I dropped Amagami SS because I didn't find any of the girls to be very cute...

I held off from watching Ouran High School Host Club and Princess Tutu because I thought they would insult my manhood. How wrong I was, though. Those shows are some the best deconstruction ever penned.

Yes, but do you have a stupid/silly/unreasonable reason not to do so? See thread title.

I tend to give most comedies a wide berth for this very reason, it seems like abusing the MC is almost the only joke many anime writers know, and they use it with the grace of a meat cleaver. I never understood the popularity of Rumiko Takahashi's work for this very reason, as it's pretty much the only joke in Urusei Yatsura and Ranma 1/2 besides bad, Japanese-specific puns. Even Kagome abuses poor InuYasha for 'laughs' whenever they aren't fighting the Demon of the Week.

Code Geass,
Though it turned out to be one of my most loved animes, I downloaded it without even watching an episode after being told it was similar to Death Note.

And anyone that's watch Code Geass could probably agree the beginning really sucks so I was just thinking to myself "Why did I download this!!" for a while but in the end I'm so glad I did!

I stopped 'Darker than Black' after not even 1 full episode. A few minutes in, some guy's arm broke in a weird way and it turned me off to the show almost immediately.

I watched Chobits because I enjoyed X/1999(the TV series version) and Magic Knight Rayearth, two of CLAMP's series I liked, however I ended up hating Chobits, the romance story between the leads wasn't to my liking and the MC was pretty lame.

I initially avoided Time of Eve, Clannad, and Legend of the Galactic Heroes because I thought it was pretentious crap, harem crap, and boring old guy crap respectively.

And thus I was proven wrong on all three accounts.

watched death not because of the fandome...

oh god the shame :( (and dropped it half way in when i couldn't even get myself to watch any anime because of it) last time i blindly watched an anime based on people telling me how great it was haha.

and did enjoy school days alltough all the warnings everybody gave it haha i just HAD to watch it and unlike death note i liked it haha (it's far from my favorit anime but still the situation was kind of intresting)

I have several dumb reasons for watching shows....
The most common dumb reason is if the main character has a cool sword or a gun, I will most likely watch it.


I had refused to watch One Piece for the longest time....because I thought the characters looked stupid as hell (now it's my favorite anime!)

Watched about 7 episodes of "Onegai Teacher," the rage-quit for some reason. I'm still not sure what it was about the anime, but it really set me off to the point of almost breaking something.

I refused to watch Cowboy Bebop and TTGL , because some bastards don't know how to use a freaking spoiler when discussing something outside it's own forum.
In other word , i got spoiled that

Don't worry about the Bebop spoiler too much because a running theme throughout the show is inevitability. It's not so much a shock as it is what is supposed to happen. The show is still amazing, spoiler or no spoiler.

TTGL: Well that sucks... but worry not, there's a lot more to it than that. Fans have been really good at not spoiling that other thing. (Not telling).

I watched Boku, Otaryman because the main character is voiced by Miyano Mamoru.

I watched Chocolate Underground because I could finish it in one sitting.

I watched Mars Of Destruction because it's the worst rated thing on MAL.

I watched One Piece, after seeing a bunch of awesome fanart, to prove to myself that I wouldn't like it. Five hundred episodes later and it's my favorite anime. xp

I haven't watched Clannad because my friend keeps telling me I "have to" watch it.

I stopped watching Kurogane no Rainbareru after one or two episodes because the main guy really annoyed me

also, I dropped Seto no Hanayome because I got annoyed that the main guy kept blushing about his first kiss despite having such a beautiful and kind wife (stupid reason, I know)

We're not all elitists. Well I am a bit, but I try to keep it to myself. It's not overrated though. It's a sad hypocrisy that so many LoGH "fans" here recommend it, but do it in a way that turns people off it. But then I guess if too many people watched it, it wouldn't be their own little niche.

Haha totally agree. I saw the OP and all the Konata avatars on various gaming websites long before I became an anime fan, and I ended up watching it to see what insanity lied beyond that song...surprisingly tame in comparison really :P

I nearly dropped code geass because I didnt feel comfortable seeing naked girls being thrown around in my living room. Not really a family friendly anime. Gore is one thing but when boobs become involved, then it becomes awkward.
