Anime Battle




Synopsis. In this world there exist alchemists, people who study and perform the art of alchemical transmutation - to manipulate objects and transform one object into another. They are bounded by the basic law of alchemy: in order to gain something you have to sacrifice something of the same value.

The main character is the famous alchemist Edward Elric - also known as the Fullmetal Alchemist - who almost lost his little brother, Alphonse, in an alchemical accident. Edward managed to attach his brother's soul to a large suit of armor. While he did manage to save his brother's life, he paid the terrible price of his limbs.

To get back what they've lost, the brothers embark on a journey to find the Philosopher's Stone that is said to amplify the powers of an alchemist enormously.

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood is a re-telling of the story from the manga point of view.

Synopsis. Gol D. Roger was known as the Pirate King, the strongest and most infamous being to have sailed the Grand Line. The capture and death of Roger by the World Government brought a change throughout the world. His last words before his death revealed the location of the greatest treasure in the world, One Piece. It was this revelation that brought about the Grand Age of Pirates, men who dreamed of finding One Piece (which promises an unlimited amount of riches and fame), and quite possibly the most coveted of titles for the person who found it, the title of the Pirate King.

Enter Monkey D. Luffy, a 17-year-old boy that defies your standard definition of a pirate. Rather than the popular persona of a wicked, hardened, toothless pirate who ransacks villages for fun, Luffy’s reason for being a pirate is one of pure wonder; the thought of an exciting adventure and meeting new and intriguing people, along with finding One Piece, are his reasons of becoming a pirate. Following in the footsteps of his childhood hero, Luffy and his crew travel across the Grand Line, experiencing crazy adventures, unveiling dark mysteries and battling strong enemies, all in order to reach One Piece.

Synopsis. Life isn’t easy in feudal Japan… especially since the aliens landed and conquered everything! Oh sure, the new health care is great, but the public ban on the use of swords has left a lot of defeated samurai with a difficult decision to make concerning their future career paths! This is especially true if, as in the case of Gintoki Sakata, they’re not particularly inclined towards holding a day job, which is why Gintoki’s opted for the freelance route, taking any job that’s offered to him as long as the financial remuneration sounds right. Unfortunately, in a brave new world filled with stray bug-eyed montsters, upwardly mobile Yakuza and overly ambitious E.T. entrepreneurs, those jobs usually don’t pay as well as they should for the pain, suffering and indignities endured!

Tournament Conclusion

The members of Crunchyroll have decided.

And the 2011 Crunchyroll Shounen Battle winner is:

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood.

This is your choice. Be proud of it. It just shows how superior this anime is compared to others. Nothing really stood a chance against it.
Flawless story telling and directing accompanied by amazing voice actors and music, the story of the 2 brothers
has once again been acknowledged as one of the truly greatest works of arts in the Anime industry.
Congratulations to all those who voted for it. You definitely picked the best.

Coming in second place is none other than the amazing One Piece. I was rooting for this to be honest,
but FMA being the champion isn't so bad after all. I'm just happy this is being recognized by the people of CR.
Such a hated anime, I'm surprised it even got to the finals! It just shows that this oftenly misunderstood anime
has the fan base to back it up. Amazing result!

And lastly, our 3rd placer is Gintama! A gag anime that beat some of the most popular shounen titles out there.
This was for sure set to be in the top 3. One of the many reasons is, CR has it and so a lot of the members here might have already seen it
and loved it, therefore, voted for it. Then there's the modern comedy everyone just simply loves. Good job, Gintards!


I'm impressed! I honestly don't think any other top 3 would be just as good.

And now we move on. Our tournament, which lasted over a month, has now come to a conclusion.

The top 3 Shounen titles voted by the people of CR are:

Gold Shounen Award - FMA: Brotherhood
Silver Shounen Award - One Piece
Bronze Shounen Award - Gintama

3 highly recommended anime that based on the votes, everyone should watch. Really, watch them.

Anyway, I am now officially putting a close to this tournament.
I will be asking a mod to close this soon. So let us discuss the results before then.
