All the time-- let's see... timeslot changed, financial reasons (can't commit to $30/3 episodes for a 75+ episode show), moved to somewhere without television/cable, had to work instead of going to anime club, dropped anime club, fell out of contact with friend who was loaning out series, library doesn't have full run and doesn't order in optical media, series was never fully released in NA/English, subbers dropped series and no one picked it up, um... should I go on?
And that's ignoring shows that weren't my cuppa - didn't like the plot, characters, direction show was headed, art style, etc.
That's like asking 'have you ever not finished a book? why?' when sometimes... you just don't.
I'm not sure what the last anime I actually dropped was. There are a lot of things I want to go back and finish, but it'll take awhile. My slow internet makes streaming iffy sometimes so I'm a lot better off with physical media, but that often requires more cash. And some things aren't legally available on physical media yet, so~ *handwaves*
The last manga I dropped (from my library-borrowing spree) was JoJo's. It was interesting but I just couldn't get invested in the story.
Well, yeah? Give someone enough decades -- or not that many decades, come on now -- and they're bound to hit something that doesn't actually press so many buttons.
Why? Boredom; not interested in the story; not interested in the characters; not enough time to watch it; it just wasn't engaging enough. Because I felt like it.
Shockingly this can happen and one is still an anime fan!
Something the author of this meme perhaps could not wrap their brain around? idek, oi.

Things stay on my list for a LONG TIME, yes. XD
In cat news, Cinders had a bad night last night. She likes to burrow under the throw on top of my blankets and pretend that she's a ... I dunno, a sandworm or something. So she did that, and she was playing "got your hand" with me, when Jesse snuck up and whapped her on the head.
Then after she recovered from that, Sam kicked her as he was stretching. And then Gidget jumped off the top of my bookcase and landed on her, full-weight. Poor girl scrambled out of the blankets, all wide-eyed and trembling. It took ages to calm her down!
As in, only hung on because I really wanted to know what happened to one of the cast? Or started watching something because of one character (like I'd seen art or something and was curious)?
Sure. Isn't that sort of how it works sometimes? If it's not a stellar premise but a character has an interesting design or something, I'll check it out. And then there's usually some reason to keep going... I can think of more games that I've finished for a character or two compared to anime... But I definitely know where there were times that the plot was a mess or fell off and I kept going because of an attachment or curiousity about the cast. I think that's pretty natural.
I'm quite fond of the whole things, now, but... the first time through Tekkaman Blade II was pretty painful until all of a sudden Dead End showed up and wait, what-? and I would have watched another fifty episodes to see how that was going to play out.
And that reason has the same effect, really, as waving a red flag in front of a bull, ha -- because you know what's not on, folks? Seeing someone be such a miserable, petty jerk as to say that even having to lay eyes on requests (or was it actual gifts? I'm too lazy to go check again and it doesn't really matter anyway) for other Voltron series that aren't LD would just ruin~ the experience for them. No, they would want the unsullied purity~ of an LD-exclusive exchange.
Well, I sure as fuck wasn't about to let that go unchallenged after the exchange mod confirmed a pan-franchise exchange was go.
But not to worry! I do indeed sign up in good faith nonetheless <3 With multiple iterations, even, and that's going to include LD.
Some of us know how to share ;3
I've certainly continued an anime only because of a certain character or characters, tekketsu being the most recent example -- while still fond of Eugene and Shino, frex, they weren't enough for me to bother with S2 after the end events of S1. Not, that is, until a certain body was heard to speak and then I had a reason again just to find out why, and it all fell out quite~ nicely ;3~
In all seriousness, though, if you aren't watching a series/reading a book/playing a game because there's a character you like (or a setting you like, or etc) ... then why the hell are you bothering?
For broadbeam! :D

I think taichara already gave my answer-- wtf, meme writer and I have and I'll do it again, though sometimes there's a question of time, not inclination.
I wonder if the person who wrote these questions knows there's been an anime series airing weekly since 1969... Now that's a lot of episodes.
[bird photos today: bluejays, sparrows, tufted titmice, carolina wrens]
I got up around 5:30 in the morning. It ended up being partly cloudy and fairly warm, though not as humid as it’s been. Also the morning was pretty cool until later one when the sun started warming things up.
The moon was still visible for a while after sunset.
I actually had both my hearing aids in for a change (expressly for hearing the birds today) and because of that I heard the chickadees, two of them high in the trees. So adorable. No pics because they were far up and moving fast. I did enjoy seeing them though.
I’ve been hoping to snap a photo of the bluejay I saw the other day and today I was able to. Not the best of photos since it was kind of cloudy at 7:30 am when they were out. But I did see two different ones. One stayed up high in the oak tree that overhangs our place. The other was silently scouting around. He didn’t come too close, probably because I was up and walking around with the camera on the porch.
Yesterday when he visited he was so noisy. He came as close as the clothes hangy thing and he yelled at the squirrels and sparrows. The sparrows took off, most of the squirrels did too, but they were not quiet about it. They did a lot of yelling back.
such a pretty bird trying to be stealthy
( Read more... )
A few squirrel photos, a nuthatch, a woodpecker, a couple of sparrows, and a tufted titmouse.
I adore these three photos of this tufted titmouse with a dried up maple leaf
[As I was writing that, two tufted titmice just came down to the porch where I had some walnuts out incase they showed up. They are so freaking adorable.
The first one dropped his but the other waited until he came back for another, they definitely seem to have a hierarchy from what I’ve been able to see these last few months. ]

I ... have? More than once, even?
Why is this framed as being some kind of Weird Shit[tm]?
I mean, I could understand it if this question was like 'do you have time to watch 100+ episode series' (not nearly as much as I used to), or 'have you ...' or -- well, anything along those lines, really. But 'would you ever'?
I question the author of this meme, I swear to fuck.
Having loads of icons to pick from featuring various characters from various fandoms -- even obscure ones! -- is the reason I keep paying for my DW account year after year. :D
I made some really nice lemon blueberry muffins a couple of days ago, I was really happy with how they came out. I like to use the small blueberries in muffins, they don't sink much. They’re usually labeled as “wild blueberries” or “Maine blueberries”, around here. I generally use frozen berries, for various reasons. Mostly cost and convenience. Also when we can actually afford good in-season berries, we eat them within a day or two, so there aren’t ever any left for baking anyways. I generally wait until the frozen ones are on sale and then buy a few bags.
Yesterday I made fried dough for breakfast and it was soooo good. In the past when I've tried my hand at fried dough, I've used leftover pizza dough. This time I made a half batch of my usual bread dough recipe, added extra (molasses, cinnamon, nutmeg & vanilla) that I don't usually add to my bread, let it rise once, and used that. Oh, so good. I made them small and we had them with butter and maple syrup. Kind of like really easy homemade donuts. Not exactly health food, but a wonderful little treat.
Yesterday seemed to be the day for frying stuff, since I ended up making fried eggplant (and a few mushrooms) for dinner. Yum! Local eggplant from the farmers market usually ends up as fried eggplant for us. I don’t usually buy it other times of year either, I like it best when it’s fresh and less bitter than when it’s off season. New England has such a short growing season, that “off-season” is most of the year.
Right now I've got bread dough rising, for actual bread- we're almost out of the stuff I made a few days ago.
Not sure what else I'm going to make today. I'm thinking about doing tacos for dinner, but I'm not sure. It depends on when everyone is awake at the same time and all that. And how I feel later.
While I do enjoy the warmth of summer especially since I've been hanging out on the porch with the local wildlife; I really miss being able to bake later in the day and making warm soups. Now I do any baking in the morning hours or on cool rainy days.
I'm sure It will be cold and I'll be longing for warmer, times soon enough.
Time to go check on the bread.
I hope everyone has a lovely day :)
Then, nothing else happened, because seriously, fuck Nazis."
