To those who dropped Lucky Star after having watched only the first episode:
The fist episode is definitely the worst of the series, if you ask me
From there on it gets better, but ofcourse if slice of life high school cute girls isn't your thing to watch then that's a different story.

This.
I try to give every show a chance, even if I know that, from the very beginning, they'll fail miserably.

You are right! The first episode made me feel depressed :)

I don't think I ever dropped one from only one episode, I did once with only two. Red Garden.

I've never dropped an anime after just one episode. One episode is barely enough to get a real first impression...

None.
I prefer to watch 3 or 4 episodes to make an idea, and even if the show is bad I watch it to the end if it's not too long : it could become better... Sometimes it doesn't unluckily ^^

Kurogane I can understand, but I don't see how Toradora was so bad. The quality was quite alright in that one, but I guess it's a moot point if you don't like the style.

People tend not to separate animation with art style.

Toradora animation wasn't as poor as Kurogane.

Ok well yea.. I do the same too like give an anime atleast 3-4 episode before putting on-hold or yet dropping, but Lucky Star was like the first that actually made me stop on the first 12 mins. I gave it another shot after like 3 months or so and I actually finished the first episode but I haven't had the mindset or enthusiasm whatsoever to go on to the next episode even though I've had people tell me that it gets better after.. Maybe I will pick up on it again.. but not anytime soon though.

I never really drop a series.

But if the series doesn't interest me it may take 1 to 2 years for me to finish.

Saiyuki, after about 3, so I guess that doesn't count.


And Blade of The Immortal, after no more than 40 seconds.

I don't usually drop any series until I've seen at least 3 episodes of it. Anyone watch Kino's Journey? She spends only 3 days in any country she travels to and believes it's enough time to know nearly everything important about the place.

I kind of view anime like that, where 3 episodes is all I need to know if it's worth continuing or not. Although there is an exception to every rule... I'm sure Kino would steer clear from the Land of Instant Death for travellers if she had the choice :P

Anyways, I'm guilty of dropping Gunslinger Girl -Il Teatrino- after seeing only a single episode of it. It was nothing like the first season, which I thought was very excellent. When I heard there would be a second season, I couldn't help but to get my hopes high, only to see it crashing down when I watched the first episode of it... I really wish they didn't make a second season for the series if it'd turn out like that -_-

You should give it another chance. I did the exact same as you, watched the first ep as soon as I could and then put it on hold for months since it was horrible. I eventually picked it up again a while ago and finished it off and I must say, it does get better in the second half, even if Rico and Henrietta look retarded with the new art style.

I think most people set limits at acidic breast milk that melts clothes. I think I dropped it at that point, or at least slightly later after I went to make sure that I wasn't accidentally watching hentai.

Hm.

Vampire Knight and Rosario+Vampire. My friends kept bugging me to watch it, but I got mayor Twilight flashbacks and didn't even bother to watch the rest.

And I've watched two episodes of Kenichi with my boyfriend, but I couldn't see why he kept lol'ing while watching so we continued with FMA...

Hmm some of the choices I read from the first page sound a bit odd, but I was amused to see several don't like Queen's Blade.

I would be joining you.
It's the first anime I ever had enough interest in to download, that didn't even make it thorugh the entire episode.

The anime is crap, actual crap, totally without worth. If you like titties that much, you can do so much better for your anime titties than this crud.
While not technically anime, currently I am a big fan of Hatsune Miku.
At least I can go see her in concert.

I do find it weird that people actually dropped QB though. I'd think thew only reason anyone would even try it would be for cheap lulz. At least it doesn't try to be anything else.

Most recent one was Tayutama. Though I dropped Rosario after watching the first ep. Both seemed to me to be fanservice and fluff with no real plot.

But that's just my own opinion. ~_^

I notice that you haven't watched xxxHolic. Isn't xxxHoilc Kei the second season?
Why would you start watching the second season before the first, or was it an accident.

Just wondering.

Most recent.....K- On.
Don't think I made it through the first ep.

Made it through the first ep of Lovely Complex, but haven't yet decided if I will watch more or not so it is on hold.

Any anime I have dropped don't even make my list, whether I have watched only a couple of eps or more, with Bleach and One Piece being the 2 exceptions. If Naruto goes....it'll stay on my list as well. Way too much time spent watching those 3 to completely remove them.
