Anime you really wanted to like but didn't?

I wanted to get into Hitman Reborn but I couldn't stand to watch the first 6 episodes it was so boring I looked at youtube clips of the fights and it looked so interesting but when I got down to watching it I was like WTF

Other animes I've tried... See more to get into was Toriko but I didnt like the style or the story so I dropped and I was ready to like it but I just couldnt the same thing happened with e's otherwise, and Zeta Gundam
