Out of the 20 anime series listed, I dropped half of them. Yep, full 10 series were dropped by me! Let's have a quick look at which series were dropped, why and how did they fare.
Two things to keep in mind: When I drop an anime series, it's basically a "good thing", because if I forced myself to watch the rest, I would be so annoyed by the series that the final rating would be much lower in the end despite possible better overall quality of the series (general rating would overwhelm the episodic one). So, be glad that I dropped these!
And the second thing is that when I'm writing about a bad anime series, I am sometimes vulgar, because I need to relieve myself of my frustration. Do not be offended by those expressions.
10/Monsuno (75%), 3.5/5
You may be surprised by the rating, as the percentage is rather big. You are right, I would not drop this anime, if it was actually properly subbed. I only found subtitles for the first episode only and that was it. So, this rating is definitely not final and may even be biased, however, the anime was quite good actually, it seemed to be new Beyblade/Bakugan/Battle Spirit etc. kind of anime. Those missing subs ruined it, though.

09/Zetsuen no Tempest (65%), 3/5
The main problem I had with this anime were the characters. I found them uninspired and boring. The plot also wasn't very spectacular. Simply a boring anime with a good premise.

08/Kamisama Hajimemashita (61%), 3/5
Even though I like romantic animes, I generally hate episodic series. You know where I'm going, right? Also, I prefer romantic series with a male as a main hero. The two spirits that were helping at the sanctuary were also pretty annoying and I didn't like them at all.

07/Shin Sekai Yori (52%) 2.5/5
This anime managed to go from "okay" to "no, thanks" by adding shounen-ai and shoujo-ai elements without proper explanation (puberty my ass). Whenever elements like shoujo-ai, yuri, shounen-ai and yaoi (which are my 4 most hated genres overall) appear, I automatically drop the series. They even managed to combine two of those here. As for the part before this "change", I liked the idea of post-apocalyptic world, but I always had a feeling there was something missing. I couldn't get into the story and the characters were not appealing to me.

06/Chuunibyou Demo Koi ga Shitai! (46%), 2.5/5
This is an interesting one. Scoring 60% in the first three episodes, I was thinking about dropping it since the beginning, but I liked the main female character of this anime enough to keep going. However, once I found out that theisanime - during the first five episodes - had basically no plot and was only about behaving like small children, I decided to drop this series. I don't like anime without lame/non-existing plot ines.

05/Ixion Saga DT (46%), 2/5
At the beginning, I quite liked this anime (ratings close to 65%), but as the time went on I realized that the main focus of the series were jokes and not the plot, which was quite good in the initial episodes (specifically the first one). This utterly disappointed me. Also, the jokes were slowly getting more and more stupid and even went into shounen-ai/yaoi genres sometimes, which I disliked a lot. So, in the end I decided to drop it rather sooner than later.

04/Code:Breaker (30%), 1.5/5
This was just bad. It reminded me of Death Note so much and the quality was so bad since the beginning, that it was a very quick decision to drop it.
Dropped at: 02/13
03/Little Busters! (20%), 1/5
I basically knew from the start that this anime was going to be a total shit, as I hate KEY VNs and anime series based on their games. However, as I played the VN for a short time and was bored as hell by it, I decided to see if the anime was as bad as the game was. Well, I guessed right.

02/K (14%), 1/5
Has it ever happened to you? You are watching the first episode of a new anim series and no matter how hard you try, you are totally bored with it and do not understand the point of its existence at all? Yeah, it happens to me a lot. It had no plot whatsoever and the "cliché cliffhanger" at the end of the episode had no effect on me whatsoever. The beginning of the second episode only proved my point about dropping this.

01/Litchi DE Hikari Club (12.5%) 0.5/5
A completely pointless series. I really don't understand why these shits are being made. They are not funny, way too short, the animation sucks ... Just meh.
