I'm picking anime which had very good initial episodes, and basically went downhill after that.

Akame ga Kill: Interesting premise. I thought this was gonna be some huge plot in which they carefully over-throw the Government in a grand manner. I honestly thought this could be the next FMA. But, after the 5th or 6th episodes, it became a joke, because
Spoiler :

a character gets killed every other episode.

There wasn't any emotional stake, the plot felt extremely rushed. The only redeeming qualities are the action and the animation.
Ao no Exorcist: Same problem as the above. Amazing inital episodes. Showed a lot of promise. To have a comparison, My Hero Academia is what this anime should have been. But, no, after the 12th episode, they rushed it as hell, there was a boss battle suddenly, and on top of that, in the middle, you had unnecessary picnic and beach episodes. 
Log Horizon Season 2: I had a lot of expectations going into this series, because I loved the first season. I hadn't watched SAO yet(still haven't), so, it was the first of its kind, for me. Great characters, action, dialogue, world, it had everything. Then came the second season, it started off pretty strong. What went wrong? Instead of focusing on the existing characters, adding a few new characters, and building the world slowly and steadily, in every episode, it introduced new powers left and right, and half of the episode consisted of expository dialogue. On top of that, the anime introduced many characters, and took the time to explain who they were, only to not use them ever again. The crime is not this, it's that whenever it did that, it was for like 10-15 characters, so, you couldn't remember any of them. At around episode 14, it became unwatchable for me, because, unfortunately, it became... boring. I put it on-hold around episode 20.

Honourable mentions: Mayoiga(one of the worst anime I've ever seen. Including it because it had an interesting premise, but, it became pretty bad right from the 2nd episode), Tokyo Ghoul and Tokyo Ghoul Season 2, Joker Game.

" Justice is subject to dispute; might is easily recognized and is not disputed. So we cannot give might to justice, because might has gainsaid justice, and has declared that it is she herself who is just. And thus, being unable to make what is just strong, we have made what is strong just."

Yeah I found Re:Zero, Akame Ga Kill, and Sword Art Online to be disappointing. 

The reason why these animes are so interesting at face-value is because they have great premises. But their plots are ass in my opinion. 

Akame ga kill has flat characters with almost little to no meaningful character development. SAO has a nonsensical plot. And Re: Zero isn't outright bad but doesn't do anything special that I haven't seen in other animes.

Akame ga kill doesn't hold back on deaths. there are lots of deaths in that anime and for a rebellion group that is close to reality.

Naruto would be at the top of my list. It was boring after the start of the world shinobi war.
