What was the last series you dropped?
>>
I'm thinking about dropping KlK, I stuck it with this long hoping it would get better. Pretty average for what I watched.
>>
Wizard Barristers. I couldn't stand the MC anymore. Been a while since I last saw a legit mary sue.
>>
>>101443866
Keep watching.
We're nearing the final climax anyways.
>>
I couldn't finish second episode of ImoCho. Norin is pretty atrocious too.

Really damn close to dropping:
Norin
D-Frag
Witch Craft Works

Already dropped (ep 2)
Mahous Sensou
ImoCho
Pupa
Sonico
That stupid Shaft harem anime about yakuza
Nobunaga the Fool
>>
>>101443819
Sakura Trick
Nobunaga the Fool
Strange+
Pupa
Magical Warfare
Z/X Ignition
Hamatora
>>
Chuu22
Sakura Trick
NNB
>>
>>101443819
Nobunagun, probably. But I've already gone past the 3 episode rule and I've already downloaded the next two episodes.
>>
Sonico
Noragami
Witch Craft Works

I might drop Golden Time since Ghost Banri is ruining it.
>>
>>101443819
Nobunagun, for hetshit spoilers. Super sonico because hambeast.
>>
>>101443819
Probably still that stupid fish people show, I kept watching everything else I started on
>>
>>101444751
What happened? I only stuck with the show because I like the MC.

Nobunagun

Cowboy Bebop is overrated, there I said it.
>>
>>101443819
Sakura Trick
Wizard Barristers
Nobunaga the Fool

Might drop Hamatora if it doesn't get better.
>>
Mikakunin de Shinkoukei (ep 1 drop, boring plot)
Sonico (ep 3 drop, sonico is a whale slut)
>>
Ninja Scroll
Hunter x Hunter

Boring start, boring action, boring dialogue, and boring boring plots. I couldn't even make it to episode 3 of the first, and couldn't make it past episode 1 of the second.
>>
I never really drop something. I just place it on hold indefinitely. Latest was SAO, which a friend wanted to watch with me, but I just don't find it interesting enough to watch on my own.
>>
>>101445301
That's not NGE.

Holy shit, this is probably the worst taste I've spotted anywhere on /a/.

Why the fuck would you drop a show because of that? Do you only watch gay stuff?
>>
>>101445121

>>
>>101448697
I have no fucking idea, considering Jack the Ripper is actually a pretty good male character compared to the haremshit MC tripe and betamax MC variety that infests bad shows.
>>
>>101448674
It's childish drivel. I'm really embarrassed watching these shows.
>>
>>101448910
What's wrong with something being childish?
>>
>>101448697
I enjoyed first two episodes of Nobunagun, but apparenty episode 5 is full of fanservice. Quite frankly, I don't know if I want to continue.
>>
>>101448953
Two episodes are all I've watched myself, but I really liked those two. Hoping to try the rest for myself soon, anyhow.
>>
>>101448951
It's cringeworthy. Juvenile jokes about panties, wish fulfillment for adolescent boys, infantile, unfunny jokes. It's just not for me. I expect something more from my entertainment.

Dropped:
Pupa (so much potential what happened?)

Close to dropped:
Silver Spoon (novelty is wearing off)
Yowamushi Pedal (I don't mind all the gay subtext but these characters are such assholes)

And somehow Naruto gets better and better each episode. No end in sight for this great ninja anime.

Do you have absolutely no faith in your own taste?

>What was the last series you dropped?

Norin.

Not really because it's a bad show, but because it has atrocious subs.
Yes, all three of them.

Maybe for BDs if somebody will bother rips them with a decent subbing.
>>
>>101449818
>really
No, I enjoyed it because of all this hotblooded action. It's just cool.
But if this turn into fanservice-ridden tripe then I'll drop it.
Of course I'm planning to watch episode 3.

Last episode was pretty great though. I'd say stick with it. Even the worst episodes have been pretty decent.

Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko

Along with almost everything this season except Sakura Trick and Saki.
>>
>>101448953
>but apparenty episode 5 is full of fanservice.
It's full of funny is what it's full of.
>>
>>101443819
Not Sakura Trick. Honestly it was probably SOA. I don't often drop series. I guess I've kinda dropped Space Dandy, but that mostly just because I've just not had any want to catch up on it.
>>
>>101443819
Nobu the Fool.

I'd say ST, but dropping it during the first PV prior to episode 1 airing doesn't count. I tried, dykes are still gross as FUCK.
>>

I'm not asking about what you think of them. I'm asking what's so wrong with this release that you'd drop the show because of the subs.

Nisekoi. I'd even prefer Mahou Sensou to this shit.

Pretty much any show that I pick up.

I used to marathon shows, but now I usually just watch as much as I can in a couple of hours then get distracted and completely forget about it. I think I might've lost most of my interest in anime. In the first 200 or so series that I've watched, there was always something new and interesting, but now it just all looks the same to me. I can usually tell how an anime will end within the first 3 episodes, sometimes in just the first episode, other times with just a description and a look at the characters, and then I loose all interest in it because it feels like something I've already seen before.

What's happened to me, /a/? Where did the good times go?

Mahou Sensou, but I somehow picked it back up. It's just so bad, I want to see where this trainwreck will go.

The other things I dropped from this season are Buddy Complex, Z/X Ignition, Wizard Barristers and Nisekoi. Considering dropping WUG too, but Yamakan's QUALITY is so entertaining it's making me unsure.

Also I should get out of this thread, seeing all this bad taste oozing out of it is harmful
>>
>>101452617
Don't worry. Had this too after about 200+. I stopped watching anime for about a year. Now I'm fully back, most of the time.
>>
>>101452499
You have shit taste if you prefer Mahou Sensou over Nisekoi. Sure, Nisekoi is pretty average, but I find it pretty good considering it's a harem and we knew the manga was pretty bad. Shaft did a pretty good job on this adaptation, I don't know why you would even pick it up expecting more.
>>

Watamote.

forced myself through 1 1/2 episodes and then deleted it.
>>
>>101449842

If you're actually able to rate subs, you really should be able to watch it raw. My powerlevel ain't there yet, but getting closer by the minute.
>>
>>101453680

>If you're actually able to rate subs, you really should be able to watch it raw.

What?
>>
SoniAni. First time I've dropped an episode in fucking ages. Normally I can just stick it out, even if it's bad.

>>101444045
>Norin is pretty atrocious too.
You are such a massive fucking faggot.

Nobunaga the Fool
>>
ZX Ignition, Sakura Trick, Imocho, D-Frag, Hoozuki, Witch Craft Works, Puka, Soniani, Mahou Sensou.

Thinking about dropping Hamatora, Nobunaga the Fool, Buddy Complex, and Nourin.

>>101453704

No, your taste is beyond shit. Please explain how these shows are good.
>>
>>101453803

>Puka

Typo, but fitting.
>>
>>101453700

Ability to rate subs takes some comprehensive skill at Japanese, beyond "dostedt" and "watashi wa uguu~ no onii-chan???".
>>
Space Dandy. Normally I have a 3 episode rule, but it was so boring an shit I dropped it after the 1st. Honourable mentions : Pupa, Engaged to the Unidentified.
>>
>>101453829
They missed certain references. When rating certain subgroups, you're not looking exclusively at the quality of translation, either; more often than not you're after better typesetting and image quality.
>>
Dropped Pupa. The censorship I can deal with to some extent. But this anime does NOT deserve such a short episode length, especially since DEEN was given a great chance to adapt a complete manga.

>http://www.crymore.net/2014/01/21/funimations-no-rin-02-is-the-worst-simulcast-script-ive-seen-this-season/

About rating subs: being good enough at moon to watch raws helps a lot and will make you able to spot translation issues, but it's not indispensable.
I would get into rating subs without knowing moon personally, tho.
(which isn't going to happen, like, ever.)

But it's not even a fain trainwreck to watch, it's just tedious and not worth spending 4minutes a week. The only trainwreck I had fun watching was Guilty Crown, that was something
>>
Nobunaga 1st episode
Onee-chan ga Kita 3rd episode
Pupa - 3rd episode
Sonico - halfway into 3rd

I tried to keep going for middle two, but the short episodes really killed it for me. Sonico was just pure boredom.
The rest of the shows I'm watching really do enjoy.

Is it worth picking up Noragami, Witchcraft Works or Nobunagun?

I'm +800, and had it too, try watching your backlog. Really good series helps a lot with this. Also it is just a stage, now from all that cliches that irritates you, you should find the ones you love. And while watching show try to focus on NEW and GOOD things it brings to you (interesting visuals, likable ost, good written characters, interesting world building etc.)
And as >>101453383 -kun said, try stop and switch to another media for a while. Good luck, /a/non.
>>
>>101453868

Well I guess it depends on what you seek in subs. Aren't they usually made soft so that you can choose your own positioning, size, font etc? I just always compare anime fansubs to English -> my native language-subs (which I rarely use) and I'm ready to accept more fallacies and clumsy style in the former since I can't properly into the moon yet so those get somewhat filtered.

>>101453883

Joke subs aside (this is one, right?), although their redemption is that they make even Naruto watchable.

>>101453926

Thanks for the link.
>>
>>101454069
>I'm +800, and had it too
Not the anon you're quoting, but I got into that situation far earlier, maybe even less than 300 shows. These days, RSS downloader downloads almost every show and I end up finishing like 2 or 3 at most per season. I guess I post on /a/ more than I watch anime.
>>
>>101454034

Noragami + Nobunagun yes, WCW no.

>>101454121

>Joke subs aside (this is one, right?)

No. These are the OFFICIAL subs. I said Funi, as in Funimation.
>>
>>101454121
>Joke subs aside (this is one, right?), although their redemption is that they make even Naruto watchable.
Naruto is CR, not Funi.
As for that, no, that's not a joke. They messed up keikakudoori.

>Is it worth picking up Noragami, Witchcraft Works or Nobunagun?

>Noragami
Plot premise is kinda generic, but everything else is easily AOTS/AOTY tier. OST, animation, voice acting, visuals.

>WCW
Faithful adaptation to the manga so far (you could always check it out before anime), it's ok. Watch at least up to 4th ep tho, that's when shit hits the fan - from then on it's just going to get crazier and crazier.

>Nobunagun
I won't deny it's not really a "great" anime (generic premise and low budget rest - unlike Noragami), but it's extremly entertaining.

In other words: watch WCW and Nobunagun and decide by yourself. Pick the fuck up Noragami NOW.
>>
>>101454149
>>101454155

Welp, I took that for a joke thanks to the ebin keikakudoori maymay.
>>
>>101454179

Its so ugly I could barely care less about the source material. It just is terrible to the eyes to watch, even more so comparatively when we have stuff like Nisekoi and Noragami to compare it to.

>ebin keikakudoori maymay

Stop.
>>
>>101454196
>extremly entertaining
I don't know, after the first episode, everything kind of stagnated for me. The MC is cute and all, but the supporting characters are pretty much all annoying, and none of the fights have been interesting.
>>
Wizard Barrister, it's just boring.
Z/X Ignition, cute angel, but I just can't deal with the extremely naive white knight mc
Might drop Mahou Sensou, it's just not interesting.
>>
>>101454249

I put Pupa on hold after 3 episodes, I'll pick it up again when it's decensored.
>>
>>101454121
>Well I guess it depends on what you seek in subs.
What the fuck are you talking about? You seem to be under the impression that all there is to fansubbing is the translation, which is really just one part of it; there's a lot more to it.
>>
>>101443899
Oh god this. I saw the trailer and got really damn excited, the MC was completely absent from the trailer and now I know why.

Yeah Wizard Barristers is the only thing I'm close to dropping but I haven't had a chance to wathc many shows this season.

Also SamFlam cour 2 is fucking horrible. It's gone from being being fun SoL/kamen rider to being law and order with colour
>>
>>101454484
Personally, I don't care as long as the translation conveys the meaning properly. But Funi's Nourin subs fail to do even that at some points.
>>
>>101454573
I might drop Wizard Barristers too, I thought it would be great at first because the action scenes at the beeginning of ep1 were really well done and the lawyer premise seemed nice. But in the end there's not much action and there's nothing interesting going on, I expected Phoenix Wright tier OBJECTIONS but the court parts are really short and have nothing interesting. I don't have a problem with the MC personally but it's pretty boring overall.

I haven't watched ep4 yet, is it better than 2 and 3?
>>
>>101454317

Just bad cinematography, and in my opinion an ugly artstyle and bad color palette. It just hurts my eyes to look at it, and god knows the story isn't enough to keep me going.
>>
>>101443899
she is not a mary sue. she keeps getting saved by other people. the "omg i have awakened to new powers 50 billion times and everybody wants my tits" thing is annoying but the sakuga keeps me going. that said i'm watching 25 or so and i'd probably drop it if i were only doing 10.

my last drop was nobunagun because it got consistently worse since the fun first episode.

Nourin. Watched the first 2 episodes, and while they weren't especially bad, I just have no desire whatever to continue.

And yet I'm somehow still watching Mahou Sensou. Makes no sense.
>>
>>101452617
This happens to all of us /a/non. Just get hype on what /a/s watching without spoilering yourself and watch what you can when you can manage it. I usually watch an episode over an hour, pausing to do shit on my computer.
>>
>>101455552
I agree, I'm not some edgy faggot who only watches "serious" and "2deep" shows, I watch a lot of comedy/SoL stuff but I'd like to have something serious and good for a change. I'm watching 10 shows this season, and the only ones that aren't comedy are Log Horizon and Wizard Barristers. Log Horizon is still pretty much lighthearted and the plot isn't great at all, and Barristers is pretty boring so far
