I always give an anime at least 3 episodes to prove to me whether I should go out and buy it or not.. so I haven't hated anything bad enough to drop it after a single episode.

Although, if so many people hadn't told me .hack//sign was good, I'd have dropped it about 10 minutes in. I'm 6 eps in and still relatively bored, so I keep putting it on hold to watch other stuff.

Gravitation because the creators haven't the slightes idea about how homosexual relationships (heck, relationships in general) work.

ToraDora! for expecting me to laugh at something that is no laughing matter.

Maria Holic for it's unfunny premise.

Linebarrels, because.

Madlax for being the most unintentionally hillarious piece of shit ever produced.

Devil May Cry because fuck the creators.

Tytania and Shikabane Hime because they failed to garner interest in me.

And last but I bet not least:

Sora wo Kakeru Shoujo, because what the fuck is it supposed to be about anyway?

Here is the script to the american live action remake of Death note. Read it and weep.

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.
The manga and the live action for LoveCom are much better than the anime...

There have been a lot.
The latest one was Maria+Holic.
The guy/girl's character just really pissed me off.
I couldn't stand it.

Bleach. It was the most awful anime I've ever watched.

Most anime I like to watch around 4 or 5 episodes before dropping it, but I could barely struggle through the first 20 minutes.

Recently it was Maria-sama ga Miteru, but I happened to pull through by giving it another chance. Almost done with the second season now... though a very good anime to me.

On the other hand, I dropped White Album all the way back in the first episode preview...was it a good choice? >_>

Me, I'm probably going to drop White Album, because it just didn't seem that interesting and I have a lot of other anime I'd rather spend my time on.

None yet. I hope to never drop anything - I just stay away from the bad. I like to give things a chance. I haven't in too many instances where I have to FORCE myself to finish it.

Currently, I'm forcing myself to watch Pandora Hearts now. Don't know if I can make it...

I like to watch at LEAST 2 episodes before I pass judgement on an anime. Even if i don't enjoy it, I will usually slog through a couple of episodes before I drop it.

White Album, Vampire Knight, CLANNAD (although I then picked it up again months later and loved it), Toradora! (picked it up again later on), Queen's Blade, AIR, Kannagi, Kanokon, Rosario to Vampire (well, I watched 1 ep and I was like ...this is awful, then like a month later I watched ep 2 and was like ...this is awful, but I'm still planning on forcing myself to watch it), Death Note, Shakugan no Shana II (might go back to it sometime), Bokatsu Tenchi Dokuro-chan or however the heck you spell it, Code Geass (made it like 2 minutes in), Boku no Pico (I couldn't even make it past the opening), Asura Cryin', Natsu no Arashi, Shangri-La, Loveless, Akikan, probably more..

I will probably end up going back to most of these and be like.. damn I'm an idiot @_@

Well, I like to give a series at least one full volume before deciding on its fate, but there were two I did give up on after just one episode: Miami Guns and Story of Saiunkoku. The former was too stupid, even for me while the latter looked like a lame ripoff of Fushigi Yugi.

I never drop a series after 1 episode. I usually try to watch halfway before deciding to drop a series. The closest I got to dropping a series halfway would be Lucky Star.

Divergence Eve, it was not my thing, Akane Maniax (I should have dropped Kimi ga nozomu eien in the first place), it wasn't funny, it might have been, if they had left out the
part. And the first Slayers series, I disliked Lina almost from the very first second and I just couldn't pay attention.

Akane-iro ni Somaru Saka.

Yuuhi disappointed me so much.

I did watch about five minutes into the second episode, and I drew the line at Minato's "You deserved it." Dropped it right then and there.

I hate tsundere like Yuuhi.

Now that I think about it, I downloaded Elfen Lied, watched about half the first episode, and then never bothered with it again; not sure why though~

Sengoku Basara ... probably the worst 1st episode of this season. I was wondering what the plot is all about, why samurai looking characters that seemed like they were from 16th century Japan the were saying modern English phrases, lots of other awkward moments.... Dropped!

Wow, that's a lot. And some of those are really good, too (*cough* Code Geass *cough* Death Note *cough*).

Inukami! is the only one I dropped after the first episode. I should've dropped Lucky Star and SnS Second after the first episode as well, but I pushed myself to see next episodes of those shows.

Elfen Lied I didn't bother to go on for the next 12 episodes. 1 was horrible enough. It was violent for the sake of being violent.

Yeah. This is a perfect example of how it's completely stupid to drop something after only 1 episode.

I've never actually dropped something after one episode but some shows I've put on-hold after one episode and I don't know if I'll ever get back to them.

The on-hold status exists for a reason, you know =|.

Then you didn't drop the show after watching the 1st episode. You just decided not to watch the show.

Most of the anime I've dropped where because I couldn't find more episodes for a while and just forgot about them. The one that I actually dropped was Bakugan. Complete rip-off of pokemon, yu-gi-oh, and pretty much everything having to do with card/monster summoning battles.

Natsu no Arashi. I just could NOT force myself to watch any more. I didn't like the character designs/drawing style at all. Watching it would hurt my eyes. It's not necessarily a bad anime or anything.

I regret it, looks like an anime I would have liked. I must not have been in the mood. I'll give it a try after exams. Probably.
