Top 25 Anime You Dropped Within 5 Minutes


Most anime viewers are likely familiar with the experience of watching an anime they find so objectionable that they can only bear to watch for a few minutes before dropping it – now there is a ranking of just which titles attract such sentiments.

2. Ano Hi Mita Hana

3. Henzemi

4. Ochinko

5. Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica

6. Softenni

7. Ore-tach ni Tsubasa wa Nai

8. “I’ll at least watch the whole first episode!”

9. A Channel

10. Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko

11. K-ON!

12. Hanasaku Iroha

13. Astarotte no Omocha!

14. Zakuro
