Sometimes a series is boring, sometimes it's cringetastic and just needs to be put down for its own good; what's the last series you gave up on and why?
Last week I gave Shirobako the classic three episode trial and bailed. The series itself wasn't cringe, it was just bad. That said the fans are top cringe. I don't really tend to like anime and manga that are about anime and manga or anime and manga clubs; the otaku culture surrounding it seems to have such a raging self-referential boner that some members don't even like anime because it's good but because it's anime, so an anime about anime brings in the worst of them.
