Though the cardinal rule of anime appears to be that a series must be dropped if it does not pick up in the first episode, some titles only pick up towards the end – leading fans to compile this “serves you right for dropping them so soon!” ranking.
The ranking (with Haganai and Kotoura, both hugely popular from the onset, mercilessly dropped from the ranking):
1. Ore no Kanojo to Osanajimi ga Shuraba Sugiru
2. Zetsuen no Tempest
4. Love Live!
5. Sakura-sou no Pet na Kanojo
6. Vividred Operation
7. Little Busters!
8. Tamako Market
9. Chiyafuru 2
10. Zettai Karen Children – The Unlimited
