The Anime I Dropped In 2019

I didn’t know what the last post of this year should be – I could have made something like “similar anime like x”, a review, or even an upcoming anime list.

But I didn’t want something ordinary! And so I decided to make a list of all anime I had dropped during 2019 for various reasons – don’t worry, all will be included!

I’m guilty. I am that kind of person who drops anime quite quickly if they don’t meet what I’m looking for. I wish I could be more patient and just wait a little longer to discord whether I truly like the anime or not, but apparently, that’s not the case for me.

Every time I start watching some anime and it does nothing for me I drop it usually after one or two episodes.

The majority of times the reasons for dropping an anime are as follows:

  • Art
  • Animation
  • Plot
  • Annoying character/characters
  • Annoying voice acting
These are anime I dropped in 2019. 

  1. Tokyo Ghoul:re – I tried with this one. It just does not cut it with me despite me loving the previous Tokyo Ghoul. It honestly feels like a completely new anime, out of context, and somehow the whole atmosphere of the Tokyo Ghoul is gone.

  2. Boruto: Naruto Next Generations – I am the biggest fan of Naruto, trust me. But Boruto failed all my expectations. The plot is boring, plain, slow, and predictable, with characters who are copies of Naruto’s characters. I don’t understand how I managed to watch like 30 episodes of this disaster.

  3. Strike the Blood – One word: harem.

  4. Sword Art Online II – Why tf is Kirito female? But that’s not the biggest issue I have with this. After Kirito had come back traumatized from the previous world, he decided to jump into another virtual world because why not?

  5. Sword Art Online Alternative: Gun Gale Online – Dropped it out of the sheer disappointment I had experienced with SAO II. I haven’t even tried, sorry.

  6. Sword Art Online: Alicization – Same. I might give this one a try though someday in the future.

  7. Tada-kun wa Koi wo Shinai – This one failed me when it comes to romance, I had high expectations but they weren’t fulfilled. I NEED MORE ROMANCE!

  8. Katekyo Hitman Reborn! – I can’t get over the fact that the Hitman is a baby.

  9. Net-juu no Susume – Lazy writing & lazy characters.

  10. Irozuku Sekai no Ashita kara – I don’t remember but the story must have been boring for me otherwise I wouldn’t have dropped it.

  11. 3D Kanojo: Real Girl – There is no excuse for this anime to be so clichéd, overdramatic, unrelatable, and dumb. Sorry to offend anyone but I would rate this anime 1/10 despite loving romcom. I felt like losing brain cells watching this.

  12. Amai Choubatsu: Watashi wa Kanshu Senyou Pet – Is this even anime or hentai?

  13. Nurarihyon no Mago – I loved only (I think) two episodes of this anime – Nurarihyon x Yohime story. I wish they got their own anime and I would watch that instantly because it reminds me of Kamisama Kiss and has everything I love when it comes to romance. Nurarihyon looks so hot as well, aaaa just WHY!

  14. Souryo to Majiwaru Shikiyoku no Yoru ni… – I felt my intellect decreasing with the increasing time spent on this anime so I had to drop it. The story was so stupid I was actually on the verge of crying. This anime is acting like anime the first minute,  then progressively becomes a low-end ecchi/hentai.

That’s it. I hope I didn’t offend anyone!

I wish you a great year ahead! Happy New Year 2020!

        I like the characters, esp tsuna and gokudera, they have elements of me, the kind hearted, clumsiness of Tsuna with a fiery, loyal temperament of gokudera. The arcs were interesting as well. The daily life arc had me in stitches, whilst the others had me rooted and I enjoyed them ?

          I wish I could be like you and not judge the book by its cover 🙁

            Don’t worry about it Mia. We all have taste and preferences. Some just don’t click, which is fine. I watched some bad ones that I thought might be good xDD. I always give the golden 3 episodes rule before I decide as to whether it will be for me

    I too couldn’t with Boruto because of just boring it was. The Naruto series is over yet they still tried whipping it along. I think the term is beating a dead horse. I love Naruto but ohmigersh, not Boruto.

    Also, it’s a good thing you skipped Sword Art Online II lol. That was disastrous…

      I tried with Boruto really hard… I am so sentimental about Naruto (to this day). It was an anime that helped me throug rough times in the past so I had a very difficult time letting it go.
      Boruto is living off the fame of Naruto, unforunately.
      I loved SAO S1 so it makes me sad that they ruined it like this :(.
