Have you ever stopped watching or reading any series? Why?

I stopped reading and watching Vampire Knight, the story didn't hook me like I expected it to.
Skip Beat! as well, but I'm waiting for more chapters before I pick it up again ^_^ (so I haven't really dropped it, more like put it on hold)

Naruto, Bleach and Fairytail
They got unbearably cliche and dragged on way too long. I might picked up them up again once they ended.

Yo Olivia.

I stopped watching ToLOVEru because of how Lala was treating the Male protagonist. It was pissing me off how stupid she is and how he kept getting in terrible situations because of her.

I may go back and watch it but I'm not sure if I have the energy to endure that. I don't even remember where I left off at. I've been hearing good things about the series sequel: Darkness and such. Maybe when I'm bored and have no other series to watch, I'll start over...

The galaxy of AZD is in progress...

Yankee-kun to Megane-chan I didn't even know why but I'm not in mood to read it now.
same goes for Kimi ni Todoke.
I'm currently waiting for more translations releases of Horimiya, Ookami Shoujo to Kuro Ouji and Dengeki Daisy.And new episodes of naruto to air by Animax India because watching online long series like naruto is hard.
Sometimes i think i should stop watching Bleach because it has so many filler arcs in anime version but it can't be helped I'm hypnotized by bleach.
Also Kuroshitsuji I started it because a friend of mine like it but i didn't much like it and only read 3 chapters and stop reading it.

As the Light begins to intensify, so does my misery,
and I wonder how it is possible to hurt so much when nothing is wrong.

I totally stopped watching Naruto. Like man! When is this going to end? They have many fillers and I bet it will take a lifetime to finish it. They have so many characters and it's really overrated.

NO OFFENSE TO NARUTO FANS.

It's just my sincerest opinion over the series.

" A mind full of bitter memories , a past drenched in sadness and watered with my tears,
A heart nurtured by the littlest spark of hope, a present fed by the wildest dreams,
A body scarred by the savage adversities, a future that holds the greatest uncertainties,
These are the deepest parts of my blue soul, armored and shielded by an indestructible fortress. " Signature

@ Redwyn, xangel0 and Blue-Crescent: yeah, seems like Naruto and Bleach are the trend here, lol. I dread picking any of those up not only because of the fillers, but because they're so damn long. Might as well pick up The Young and the Restless while I'm at it XD

Quote by AZD-A9SI've been hearing good things about the series sequel: Darkness and such.

Well, you can always save yourself the trouble and read a summary ;) I would've done the same for Dexter had I known it would turn out to be such a trainwreck in the end...

Quote by Monu-chanSometimes i think i should stop watching Bleach because it has so many filler arcs in anime version

I don't watch Bleach but I've heard a lot of people complaining about the fillers :/ Some episodes seem skippable too, so you could stick to just reading the summary for them, I suppose.

And how could I forget: Sailor Moon! Tried to watch it twice, stopped at the second season both times (managed to watch a few more episodes the second time around, though). Everything was just so episodic (recycled animation, anyone?) and it felt like the conflict should've been resolved in half the time... :/

Yes i know i can skip some episode but I'm not watching online so i just stick with tv whenever it comes and watch regularly
I was so curious about what'll happen when ichigo and ulqiuora started their battle and then filler arc started (oh god it sucks watching 2 months a filler arc)
but some anime is like "I don't know why but i love it"

I love romantic manga so waiting for new chapters to translate is very hard T.T

Argh, that's why I prefer only finished series! I had enough of waiting with Koisuru Boukun >.< At one point it wasn't even certain that the last chapter would be translated (something happened and the usual scanner didn't want to scan it anymore; I think someone else had to).

Unfortunately, I've read too many spoilers from Bleach (including what happens to Ulquiorra) so I wouldn't be able to enjoy it properly ^^"

Oh, another I dropped: Hot Blooded Woman. I read until about halfway but the plot was getting downright ridiculous - not like it was believable to begin with, though - and the characters had become downright insufferable. Each and every one of them. Plus it seemed like a completely different manga from around the 11th volume onwards.

@ pande-san:- Yeah I know I'm also thinking about it now, that is the reason I haven't stared Say I love you manga.
And i just watched Ichigo and Ulquiorra but it wasn't that satisfying and i became angry at Orihime too.

Another manga that i dropped was Honey X Honey Drops, I only started to read because it was drawn by Kanan Minami (because i love her Kyou, koi wo hajimemasu) but the content was quite shocking for me so i dropped it but became curious what'll happens to Yuzuru (female lead) so somehow finished it but i never suggest a girl to read it because they will start hating mangaka for sure but I think mangaka's fan will watch just because it was drawn by her (like me) and some men with perverted thinking just for pleasure.

Hi there Pandemonium91! Very cute new avatar you have there.
Yes. I hate long series except InuYasha even if it has fillers. I love the story. I dumped Pokemon for the same reason too though I love the series. :(

I stopped reading Naruto because the plot was too predictable and the powers of the ninjas got too random.. no offense to Naruto fans, but friendship is not a power! >.<. Bleach and Fairy Tail too.. those were good series, until the fillers kicked in :/

Oh, god Hwang Mi Ri. Get it away get it away get it away from me~ Seriously, no offense to the fans, but most works from that 'author' (and similarly, Han Yu Rang) should just be killed with fire. >_>

I haven't really watched a lot of anime shows lately but I remember dropping Hakuouki Shinsengumi Kitan when it first came out. No amount of hot bishies could save the plot and the awful main female lead. One Piece is also taking forever but I still watch it from time to time. Never liked Bleach so I can't say much about it but Naruto I still sometimes go and read for the lulz.

I've dropped too many to name... usually because I didn't like the artwork or it felt like the plot was dragging.

(or it got dropped by the scanlation group)

I have a extremly wide array of genres which I like, so dropping something happens by me extremly rarely. Usually I don't like mainstream with too many episodes, because I have the feeling that they basically lose the initail goal of the series and after hundreds of episodes (from which many are just fillers) basically they don't know what they wanted originally to do.

What I remember:

Bleach - The biggest fail of the anime industry. While Naruto had it's own huge share of fillers, by Bleach it was even more worse cause it went trough whole arcs. And the character design was often too bizarre. It should have never left the form of manga.

Gokusen - Basically a copy of GTO, but with female protagonist. This show seems to be extremly popular in Japan, but I found it extremly boring, annoying with overly stupid jokes. Sorry guys, can try as you want, but you cannot even get close to the greatness of GTO.

Sailormoon - While I liked it a lot on the beginning, later seasons are pretty bad compared how it started. Never found liking in the new characters, costumes got ironically overdecorated, episodes too similar to each other, so basically I never finished it. Hope the remake will fix some issues. And most importantly, cut down the episode number.

Special A - If I would set up a shooting range in my house, the portraits of all named characters from this series would be on the targets. See my topic about this in In-depth discussions, where I explain my reasons in detail.

One Piece, Yugioh - I dropped those after the first episode and beaten my own head into the wall until I completly forgot about them.

Vampire Knight - The Twilight of anime industry, guess doesn't needs to be explained. Just get your wooden stakes ready.

The constant bashing of my ecchi art and my haters formed me to what I am now - a full fledged hentai artist.

Quote by Huesinno offense to Naruto fans, but friendship is not a power!

Well, "Heart" is a power in the W.I.T.C.H. universe and I'm pretty sure love saves everyone's ass in Sailor Moon, so that must mean the writers are either on strike, incredibly bored or out of ideas, lol.

Quote by wafflefoxtsubasa chronicles(anime)

Surprised to see this one. According to the opinions I've heard, people think it's either the greatest thing ever created or the most boring o.O Certainly polarizing.

Quote by AlenasSeriously, no offense to the fans, but most works from that 'author' (and similarly, Han Yu Rang) should just be killed with fire. >_>

Y'know, I can't speak about the author's other works since I tend to avoid reading anything else from an author who puts out something bad XD So I'll take your word for it. Hot Blooded Woman is just teeming with mental issues, dayum.
I've come to believe Hakuoki was made solely as eye-candy. Really, the girl in otome series is the same as the guy in harem ones: "just there" as a receptacle for the viewer/reader (saw the same argument being used for Bella of Twilight fame, but I digress).

Quote by fireflywishes(or it got dropped by the scanlation group)

That's downright cruel (though I'd have no business speaking since I read them for free). I can't imagine following a series and it suddenly being dropped ;__;

Quote by akiranyoUsually I don't like mainstream with too many episodes, because I have the feeling that they basically lose the initail goal of the series and after hundreds of episodes (from which many are just fillers) basically they don't know what they wanted originally to do.

Spot on. I have a hard time dedicating time to anime in general, let alone series that have more than 30 episodes. Few series can boast having 30+ episodes and still staying on track.

"Sailormoon [...] Hope the remake will fix some issues. And most importantly, cut down the episode number." - God YES. I assume SM started off as a regular series but soon spiraled into heavy marketing territory when it became so famous. I mean really, all the wands and brooches and decorations were just toys waiting to be made and bought. Similarly, I remember reading about an older mecha series (can't remember the name, sadly) that was created specifically to sell the toy mechas. AFAIK, it bombed.

"Vampire Knight - The Twilight of anime industry" - lol, pretty accurate. I couldn't even tell most characters apart when reading the manga. And love triangles in general bore me.
---------

Oh, something else I've dropped: Highschool of the Dead (the manga, never watched the anime). Wow, a manga about a zombie apocalypse, cool! Then the boobs came along, slowly but surely, and the plot took a backseat to showcase them. I don't mind fanservice if it's in a reasonable amount, but not when it's so in-my-face >_>
On the other hand, the mangaka did a pretty decent job of drawing boobs the way they actually sit when the girl isn't wearing a bra (no, they don't sit stiff and lifted like rocks, especially if they're torpedoes/watermelons).

I'm beginning to recall a lot of dropped series, lol.

Oh, yes! I forgot about that one! I also dropped it because of the same reason. At first, it was interesting - like you said - ooh, a zombie apocalypse survival thing, count me in! The art was also pretty nice and even the characters weren't as one-dimensional as some in many other manga. And then, yes, the absurd amount of boobs and crotches and asses suddenly came into the picture and after that I just couldn't take it seriously anymore. It was like the whole series started to revolve around jiggling boobs and a love triangle between the main male character (Takeshi, was it?) and two (three?) other chicks. And god, that nurse. Just...eugh. It's one thing to add some fanservice in manga. Hell, I know it's practically shoved down everyone's throat nowadays but when you add so much of it, in a setting that's about zombies and gore and survival of all things, then you've just lost me. So, yeah, I dropped that, too. Didn't even bother with the anime lol.

And yes, once you've read one thing by Hwang Mi Ri/Han Yu Rang, it's basically as if you've read them all. They're all recycled plots and characters. Thank god, I discovered other Korean manhwas otherwise I would've thought Korean high school kids were obnoxious, aggressive and stupid beyond belief. >_>

I tried to watch Gintama, but it was one of the most boring, stale, and unfunny animes I have ever seen, I just couldn't stomach it... :c

I started the Beelzebub anime, but it was so terrible compared to the amazing manga, so I dropped that one too...

I started watching Naruto due to a friend's request, and I kind of fell out of it at some point, I'm not really invested in the characters or story/plot at all, I just like the fights, so it's not officially dropped xD
