when you are watching an anime and you are caught in a 50-50 dilemma on whether to drop it or continue watching it?

Not yet; never even considered it, probably never will since i hand pick all of them.
I'd probably feel bad if i did, anyway.

I often consider dropping things briefly, but all the shows I have actually dropped... I knew. No problems figuring it out, there was just a point where I knew for absolute certain that I did not want to watch any more.

DROP!
I believe that there are more shows that are more worthy of my time than something that made me hesitate (a very fresh example would be Dog Days' and Horizon II). But if it gets better, pick it up later.

That's why.. My dropped list.. is growing and growing...
Someone, please answer me, if what I'm doing is good or bad.

I usually don't drop anime, unless they are filled with fillers or I disagree with the morality of the anime, rather more than that anime is starting to get boring for me again.

I Usually put them on hold if I'm not enjoying it that much since I know the ending might be really good.

Nobody is forcing me to watch a series I don't like, so I just drop it when I'm not in the mood, though it's difficult to be critical when you don't watch an entire series, and then continue to call it bad, like most people will do.

I usually only drop if they are horrible and beyond redemption
I have to believe that when things are bad I can change them

Only for currently airing 2-cour ( or more ) shows. Part of me wants to just stick with it so I can say I completed it, and part of me wants to get rid of the load off my back. Having to go through 6 months of a show you're on the edge about can be pretty painful. That's why the only shows on my dropped list have been 2-cour ( or more )

For shows that have already finished airing, I'm never in this dilemma since I already have access to the full series so I feel I just have to complete it.

Not really; I don't drop a show unless it's particularly terrible, so I don't get into a 50/50 dilemma, though I have had second thoughts about finishing Pokemon, if only for completion's sake.

No if I drop it then I know I will drop this shit. If its just 50-50 then keep watching.

When I'm in doubt, I don't really feel like watching the next episode either. Eventually, I lose interest altogether. The times I forced myself weren't really worth it.

Yes! I am caught in this dillemma constantly. I have stopped watching some animes because of it. An anime needs to be interesting and have less boring info episodes. Like i feel like dropping arcana famiglia because it hasn't gotten to the main point. I also almost dropped Haruhi suzumiya when they were caught in that endless time loop, it was basically the same thing for like 5-7 episodes. I only drop when my interest is lost all together. After watching katekyo hitman reborn, i learned a series can be good, it just takes time so i give the shows with small potential a chance.

Whenever I get the feeling I'm watching an anime that is not worth my time, I watch it at double speed. That or I drop it, there are tons of great series out there for me to watch to be wasting my time.

Join the club, man.

I need to stop this though. 28 on my watching list is enough.

I've had this dilemma with a few series. I dropped some, continued others, and even now I'm not sure I made the right choice with a few of them. There are definitely some series I wish I watched the whole way through, I had better things to do with my time.

And me as well. I just purged my watching list of stuff I'm stalled on, and put that stuff back on hold or on my PTW. Got it down to 17...

I put it on hold in that case. Then I'll either go back to it later or (probably) lose interest.

Yep. I try to watch at least 20% of an anime before I drop it. Though there are some exceptions with shows to where I have dropped them outright.

having it right now with SAO.it's amusing to poke fun at it's flaws, but also a waste of time that could've been spent watching actually good things
i'll probably keep watching though since the only reason i started it was because of all the hype and 20 minutes a week isn't so bad

I had that dilemma with Arcana Famiglia, but i decided to just watch it in the end because of the characters. It's rather late to give up on it now.

I usually never drop animes. Except if really, I find it bad. Only time it happened for me was Gurren Lagann. Wasn't enjoyable (I gave it 10 episodes, but I found almost everything boring in it, and if out of 27 episodes I liked only the first 3 and hated the 7 next, I cba to finish it).

Usually I finish what I start, except if I really dislike it of course.
