I didn't watch enough of La storia della Arcana Famiglia to really have an opinion; it stuck me as being pretty similar to Blast of Tempest in a couple ways and neither one really caught enough of my interest for me to watch much of.

I can see how someone could enjoy it, though. And I'm sure it was at least better than Campione! was.


Be happy you dropped Arcana Famiglia.

I had to watch 12 episodes of ....

I think those are the two heavy weights so far...

Attack on Titan will also suffer from lack of closure unless they deviate from the manga, since anywhere they stop will be mid-stride in terms of story progression. It's also being slowly whittled down by the pacing as well.

I also think Rozen Maiden might be a sneak contender, depending on what exactly they decide to do with it. I remember liking the first season of that show a lot, it was really freaking dark when it wanted to be.

The rest will depend mostly on the finales to shows like Gargantia and SNAFU, if any of those blow people away. Hell, even Valvrave might put up a fight when it comes down to it, depending on how the rest of that show goes.

Unfortunately I think it had one of the most unfitting first episodes of any anime in the history of forever.

It really didn't match the rest of the show at all, when really I think Rozen Maiden should get as much attention as Gunslinger Girl. But for that matter I don't think I ever finished Traumend or the OVAs, just the first series.

Ultimately I could see the reboot / thing being either good or bad, it all depends.

Edit:

And also would we be including Ghost in the Shell: Arise in all this, or would that be discounted?

I've seen it before including the OVAs but that was years ago. The upcoming series is a reboot from what I've heard but I hope they keep up with the OST to be top notch again.

Good, unpredictable contest. In the end, I'm pretty happy that From the New World won, because it was among the eight shows I nominated for this contest. It was a lot of fun weighing competing series up in my mind, and I hope people have been encouraged to try some of the series that did well here.

Thanks for running this battle, chrome_mist!

I agree. I think someone earlier suggested a movie battle, but then there's the complication of where to pull the original candidates from. As I think was suggested then, possibly pulling some number from top MAL (or other source) charts; I'd think that then soliciting additions (with some limitations) from CR members--perhaps saying that each person can only contribute up to two titles or something--then doing an initial elimination round from all of them, would give a good starting point from which to proceed.

I was hoping this show didnt win, because I have yet to see it and now I'm going to have higher expectations for it. And I was really hoping for Space Brothers to win it. I started it a couple weeks ago and finished it last week, and I dont regret a thing. Watching that show was probably the longest I marathoned a show before (almost 20 episodes in 1 day, which was a lot for me).

For 2013:

Considering the last 2 shows on the 2012 comp were both from Winter 2012, we shouldn't count out this Winter season either. But AoT and Monogatari will most likely be top contenders assuming they dont fail hard in their second half. I have to start Rozen Maiden sometime next week so I can start this new series on time. I see that the show has 2 12 episode seasons and 2 OVA's. Has anybody seen them all and know if I should just watch it in that order? Some shows get messed up or out of order in their anime release I'm just hoping this isnt one of them.

Too bad there is no poll on who will get 3rd place. So anyway, to those voted in this tourney although your faves didn't win, give yourself a big pat in the back because you guys deserve it.

I am not sure if a movie battle is candidate... if we proposed the same amount of movie candidates given the even broader/limited scope. I am not sure how many people will participate.

Certainly when the movies have been pick apart by users who have seen it, others will follow suit and watch it (like this thread), but again (like this thread) there are those who didn't vote in every match, of course having not seen the anime.

How about it Chrome? Should we have a 3rd vs. 4th place consolation prize / bronze medal battle? Or are we done with this?
