35: Have you ever dropped an anime, if so why?
Oh dear lord yes. Several. Some of them with extreme prejudice. Why wouldn't
If you want actual reasons, they vary:
* Sometimes a particular character pings me the wrong way - see previous post
on characters I hate for two examples. (To be fair, both of those were 'didn't even finish the first episode' reactions, which I don't think technically counts as dropping
a series, because I hadn't even properly picked it up.)
* Sometimes I get into a series for X (a character, a plot point, a tonal feel), and then the series stops using X - see RE-KAN, which I burbled about here
. Halfway through the season it developed something pretending to be a plot, and lost the sweet fluffiness I loved.
* Sometimes I think a series is going to be one thing, and then I watch a second episode and it's not - or I watch a second episode, and the things that irritated me in the first episode have only gotten worse, while the things I liked have gotten fewer. Example this time is AIRMASTER
- bad fight choreography, insufficient girl love, I tapped out.
(And then, of course, there are lots and lots of series that I mean
to go back to, but haven't yet. This is why my Crunchyroll queue is so long. :wince:)
