So I dropped this back in episode 4 or 5.

Is this worth watching at all? I got really bored since nothing was happening, there were like 2 million characters and I couldn't even remember what was going on after each episode since there were like 500 wars, 3000 sides and stuff. So, should I give this one more chance? And of course if your answer is yes, why? Is something going to be different after episode 4~6? Cause it was really boring, weird and confusing.

I'm going to be honest, this is a show that is definitely NOT for everyone. You can't really judge it just from dropping it half way through. It's definitely something that will not spoon feed you anything either. The 1st season will probably test your patience. 1st few eps are the major info dump episodes to build the world. Whether it's worth it after everything that's up to you.

If you want to put in the time to understand what's going on... I'd suggest you read these posts before watching it again, or read the parts that refer to a specific episode after you're done watching it.
part 1: (world building, terms, Ep 1-6 dissection)
http://randomc.net/2012/06/30/kyoukai-senjou-no-horizon-retrospective-part-1-the-premise-the-world-episodes-01-06/

part 2: (ep 7-13)
http://randomc.net/2012/07/04/kyoukai-senjou-no-horizon-retrospective-part-2-episodes-07-13-final-impressions/

Yes they are huge huge posts, but it definitely gets all the points across on the show.

If you'd rather not read, you're better off watching an episode at least twice (or 3 times if you need it)
Once for seeing whats going on screen at every moment, and a 2nd for paying attention to the dialogue.
Seriously the Ep 2-5 pretty much give away everything that's going to occur for the rest of the season from them talking.

Since it is pretty old and Sunrise made a lot of better anime I'd just recommend to watch some other (better) anime if you aren't desperate and already watched all the other stuff.

In my opinion this anime is only for fans that read and liked the novel (made to boost the novel sales). The plot (at least as it is conveyed in the anime) is pretty weak and there is a lot of fanservice.

You can watch it if you mainly care for action/comedy but then again: There are better shows for this. And some lengthy/boring political/diplomatic conversations interrupt that action and make the pacing worse.

LoL this is exactly my thoughts.

I've just dropped after watching episode 06.

Sincerely, what made me went so far were the fanservices scenes, but I couldn't last long anymore.
