    I am usually the "if first episode doesn't please me I stop" but sometimes I think that might not be the case so I give it 2 more episodes if it sparks my interest. Otherwise, I must really drop it

    If it's not good after the second or third episode I normally quit.

    You see we have this thing called the "3 episode rule" where we judge it by watching 2-3 episodes but there are some series where it needs to be finished rather than watching it just for 3 episodes, series like gintama, you really just can't judge the anime by watching 3 episodes of it.

    As I think back so far I haven't drop any anime . . . . . . which I think is a good thing.

    I usually give the anime about half of the total episodes in a series or 4-5 episodes. If nothing really grabs me in the first 4-5 episodes I usually move on. But I sometimes get the urge to finish an anime to see what happens in the end XD

    hmm, I usually watch the first episode. If ever I got bored at the first episode, I usually search something like "Is [anime name] worth watching?". haha

    I usually give it a good 12 episodes to decide... unless it's really bad, then it gets less

    The rule of thumb for me is three. First episode is the intro, second is usually characters, third is actual plot. If it doesn't have me by then, out it goes.

    I prefer watching it until the end though.

    from start to end, I think it's fair enough but if I don't really like it just seeing the 1st episode I don't continue to watch it anymore but the important things is to enjoy not just the character but also the story of every anime

    I don't really have a set amount of episodes. Usually once I'm bored of something I don't keep up with it. The exception is if I've heard it gets better later on.... like KHR has like 30+ filler-esque episodes to get through before they really get going. Generally I will at least watch the 1st episode and has a least some elements I enjoy I'll keep watching. I've also been known to watch a series almost the whole way through and drop it with just a few episodes left to go :P

    I wait exactly 10 seconds... I'm fairly judgmental... I then proceed to judge all future episodes the same way.
