Kimi ga Nozomu Eien, best NTR
Fairy Tale and Black Butler(both are over hyped as shit by friends and from what little I know about them I'd probably dislike them anyway. Also anything like k-on where there's nothing going on beside "the same old wacky shenanigans from the characters we love" and by the end of the series there's no character or story progression just "oh boy, looks like Yui and the and the gang have gotten into another sticky situation". Haven't seen it, love their songs, but that's not enough to sit through that kind of anime.A series hyped by friends is generally a lot better than one hyped by randoms on the internet because common interests.
Do you specifically check the budget beforehand?I check rating, skim reviews, look at voice actors, and Google images beforehand. I don't check budget though, wherever you find that info. I know it is wrong to judge the budget by how it looks, but that's what I do unfortunately.
Or is it more if a series looks ugly you will most likely drop it?Despite what I heard of its story, I dropped Gunslinger Girl -Il Teatrino- 3 eps in because I couldn't stand it. I barely stood Da Capo, but managed to finish it for the sake of finishing it.
Every sports anime because I can't stand the dramatization.Every shounen/action series too

This is it, after all the trainings I have done for the past 12 episodes, my moment to shine has come. I will overcome my mental barrier and do my very best to beat my 12-episode-long green-haired rival and finally win this. Okaasan will be watching, and I will do her proud. My teammates are rooting for me, I can hear them, I could feel their support! I will...I will win this and end the series with another cliche ending and of course defy all possible laws of physics.
And all long animes because I lose interest quickly.
