    What can I say? Tsubasa failed to hold my interest, and I never experienced that with a CLAMP show. And, for whatever it's worth, I couldn't wrap my mind around the concept of Sakura and Syaoran as full blown, hormone driven teenagers.

    thats a good sample size. If an anime hasn't grabbed you by 1 or two episodes than move on imo.

    I post via my phone a lot, therefore I make the occasional grammatical error. Not an excuse just forewarning you. Feel free to call me out I won't mind.

    Quite true. More often than not, I was sold on a show after one or two episodes if I liked the plot or the characters. I remember being turned off on Miami Guns halfway through the first episode and quickly dropped the show after it finished, it was that revolting. Way back in the day when Newtype USA was being published, they had the enclosed free DVD with sample episodes of ADV shows, and a boatload of series in my collection were a result of watching those freebie discs.

    My trial period is 3 episodes, just as with comic books it's 3 issues for me. The first 2 episodes of an anime series may well be the show setting up its premise and finding its footing. For me, it's usually the third episode that defines the further tone/direction of the show, at least on the short term.

    Fair enough. I was a big fan of Tsubasa back then, but it (and xxxHOLiC) were very flawed productions.

    Ironically enough, Angelic Layer was my second favorite CLAMP show behind only Cardcaptor Sakura and a tad ahead of Magic Knight Rayearth. The concept of teens using foot high, mind controlled dolls in futuristic, MMA-like battles fascinated me in ways I couldn't describe. To me, that was just a cool show.

    Personally, I give things 1 ep.

    If I feel there is something there, I'll stick with it for seven eps. at least. If not, well, no.

    How about DBZ, where it takes them more then 3 episodes to get through a 5 minute fight .

    On that note the one thing I hated about DBZ's effect on anime, specifically the fighting genre, is the ridiculously long time it takes for the plot to move. For me personally it ruins the quality of a show that most likely should be condensed in half and have a faster, more fulfilling pace.

    For the most part yes, but the pacing in general is some LONG running series annoys me. eg. Bleach.

    Angelic Layer was the rare anime I thought was actually better than the manga. It added an emotional component that was lacking in print.

    Literally the only current anime I'm doing is KLK, and I'm far behind after it's over - only two episodes in. I'm trying to catch up on TTGL and watch the Gunsmith Cats OVA in-between sessions of Dr. Who.
