I don't think I've ever dropped any anime I've watched... but I have taken long hiatuses for some of them. The main reason for those hiatuses is because of other anime though lol

Homura wrote:No Game No Life, yes I also dropped it. I was looking forward to its TV adaptation before this April, but ended with dropping it at episode 5 or 6. I really dislike the type of anime whose major characters never stop winning. What the hell is that?
In my opinion, the only time "main character always wins" is a bad trope is when the main character isn't suppose to win. For example, Natsu from Fairy Tail is just a bullshit character as he should have lost 9 out of every 10 of his fights. Kazuto also falls under this category.

However, when the main character actually has the skill to win, then he or she should win. NGNL's Sora has that skill. Another example would be Mondaiji-tachi's Sakamaki Izayoi.

I was going to mention Izayoi. "Actually has the skill to win" I agree this, but winning 9 out of 10 is just different from winning all the time, which is so unrealistic. I'm not saying unrealistic is bad, but it definitely hasn't to be made in this way, just making me sad.

I don't usually drop anime even if it's utterly terrible (it can be weirdly entertaining to watch the trainwreck, after all). But if an anime is just plain boring after several episodes, I won't bother to finish it, like Hyouka or SaiKano.

Dude, how often people put Naruto and Bleach together when taking about anime drop. I heard Bleach started its final chapter last year, but Naruto turned out to finish earlier...

I tend to look at the original materials that anime used for making before looking at the anime. So I'm not sure if some of these counted as a drop of "anime".
SpoilerShow
Mahouka: took a read through a few chapters of lightnovel, dropped because I couldn't understand the setting.
Nisekoi: read some of the chapters, dropped because I didn't like how gangster concept are treated like childplay.
No Game No Life: I dropped the lightnovel after one chapter but picked up the anime later and finished it, tried picking up the lightnovel from where the anime was left off and dropped it again because I didn't like the style of writing.
Accel World: I look at the first chapter of the lightnovel first, liked the setting, started the anime, dropped at Noumi's part because it's getting too long and too boring.
Sword Art Online: for the first season, I picked up and dropped, picked up and dropped, picked up and dropped several times until I gave it up all together. Watched through Phantom Bullet, skipped Calibur after the first episode, dropped Mother Rosario after first episode aftering sensing the similar vibe from S1.
Ore no Imouto: dropped because I couldn't find anymore of the english translation of the lightnovel and didn't want to change the language of my reading.
Fairy Tail: dropped after the storylines got too repetitive.
Toaru Majustu no Index: dropped the lightnovel because it was too long.

I don't like dropping anime, I only did it twice for ZnK and Durarara, for the first because it was an horrible experience, for the second because I was intending to finish it later but never had the faith to

Actually, Durarara has "bizarre" settings and "abnormal" plots, making it a fun anime/novel to watch/read. Next year there will be 3 new Durarara seasons coming out, so I suggest you give it another look. Znk, sorry what does it stand for (Shingeki no Kyojin)?

That quadruple post

Ditto.
I used to be that guy who will watch until the end no matter how painful it was

Not sure how far am I but I dropped Clannad. And the reason other than I'm bored with it probably because of the art style? Can't stand those eyes. It's weird because I'm not picky at all with art style and surprisingly, I actually did finish After Story. I guess art syle is not the reason haha I'm just not interested with the story

For manga, Watashi ni xx Shinasai.

Haiyore Nyaruko-san- Even though I did like it but Mahiro was so annoying I can't bear watching anymore.
HenNeko- It was pretty dull minus Azusa and Tsukushi, to be honest I didn't know how I managed to watch 10 episodes.
K-On- I felt like it was shoving the cute girls doing cute things a bit too much

I figured out^^

People say there is no need to understand its plot because it sucks.
