so either i am too old or i am just not a anime head like i once was but my buddy and I are watching a series two times out of the week and he picked "Tokyo Ghouls".

Now level with me i have not watched a anime series in a long time (not counting re-watching cowboy bebop a billion times)

This story was pretty epic the first 3 episodes but the last 4,5, and 6 were very slow and was hard for me to watch, feeling drowsy by the end of the episode . i actually have to re-watch it again just so i know who the hell is who,

i am going to stick it out and just get into the anime if i have too, i had a bad experience with crunchyRoll but now this !!

will keep you fellas updated

The first season on Queen's Blade. I was expecting Soulcalibur: The Animation, but I was bored less than halfway through.

I mean, don't get me wrong: Big titty anime is still up my alley, but Arms made some mistakes.

The closest I’ve come is dealing with an anime that had the cringe knob turned up too high and having to power through to get out of that sub-plot. The biggest one is probably Sword Art Online. There’s no elegant way to phrase it, so let’s just say it’s stuff involving the female leads.

If it’s a show I actively don’t like I’ll stop watching it. Same if it is too boring, I’ll bail early as opposed to giving it a chance. My watchlist for anime, movies, and general TV shows is so long I don’t think it’s worth spending the time.

My joke answer is plunder because its actively hates its viewers. My real answer is the melancholy of haruhi suzumiya. I know its supposed to be good and the writing is solid and its just a good show I should like it but shit man, I cant put it into words why I dont like it but man.

it was my version of patrick watching prison break.

@geeelectronica: Goul is solid, but just be prepared to not understand what the fuck happened and who the hell are the characters when go from season to season. 2 to 3 is the worst, its still a cool show though

Hot take: I really don't like Makoto Shinkai's works. I like some works by other directors in a similar style, but not his own stuff. His movies are pretty films with insubstantial characters, overly self-absorbed leads, and a complete lack of consequence (the one exception, Your Name., goes the other way by being too convoluted). However, some of them are bad enough that I can watch them for ironic enjoyment.

Also, the last dozen episodes of Death Note are so godawful but I had to finish the show.

If anyone can please attempt to tell me why the hell I put myself through 2 seasons of Seven Deadly Sins, that would be great.

Had I not bought the entire collection of Gantz way back when I never would have completed it. Still took me awhile to get through it as it was almost painful watching it.

re:zero. Definitely not a fan of it, but watched it because I was going to record a podcast about it. Ended up ditching that effort after realizing what they were trying to portray with the main character.

I rewatched a lot of Gundam Wing along with a podcast.

That show fuckin' sucks. I was not a discerning Toonami viewer.

@efesell: Agree. I tried going back and watching Gundam Wing a couple years ago, and it amazed me at how little actually happened episode to episode. But it was pretty cool when I was in high school.

In a different vein, a friend showed me Akira when I was 10, and I was very much not ready for that at all. Coming back to it a few years later, I was better able to appreciate it, but 4th grade me was upset and confused in so many ways by that movie.

I’m not the biggest of anime watchers. The only thing that comes to mind is Devil May Cry. I thought it was really boring, but I stuck with it, because it was short and it was Devil May Cry. I’m much better at falling off of anime I actually like. I’m watching Neon Genesis Evangelion right now. I was listening to Dan and Bianca’s podcast about it and realised that even though I liked it when I first watched it like 12 years ago, I’ve stopped after 8 episodes. I’m on episode 12 now and am really digging it so far.

Watched all but the last season of bleach despite only liking season 1-2. Disliked it more every year but kept going for some reason.

Future Diary/Mirai Nikki. It's the definition of disappointment, it really should be illegal to give bad series really good OPs.

I hate Attack On Titan. The writing is erratic, nonsensical, convoluted and there are long strings of episodes where absolutely nothing happens. There's also heavy fascist subtext throughout. Unfortunately there are also action sequences which are an absolute animation masterclass, and as an animator I can't help but enjoy them despite the broader IQ-melting context in which they are placed. I just constantly feel guilty when watching.

I would have said Rise Of The Shield Hero but as that's an extremely problematic misogynistic fever-dream I abandoned that shit early on.

There's a reason moderators don't trust people with anime avatars.

I got way too far into Naruto and Naruto Shippuden considering I did not like that show. Like, right up until the war stuff started before I finally told myself to stop.

I also finished the "kidnap Asuna so we can build up the incest angle" arc of SAO, before I told myself I was never going to watch any more of that crap.

I can't think of any show I completely finished though, despite not liking it. There might be something, but it's been a handful of years since I watched any anime regularly, and I just don't remember much outside of the stuff I really liked. A lot of the middling stuff I watched kind of just all blurs together in my mind.
