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.

True. I, myself, haven't seen very many anime movies, and because I prefer to rely on legal viewing sources would be less likely to watch movies that were candidates, just because it would be harder for me to find those I hadn't yet seen--unless someone were to do the work of adding info indicating if something is available via Netflix (DVD/BD or instant), or Hulu, or other legal venue short of purchase. (I hate that Netflix no longer allows you to search for titles unless you're currently subscribed.)

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.


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


I 3rd this notion. I was wanting to see the battle of the slice-of-life's.

Also, I'm really happy Shin Sekai Yori won >:o It makes me feel like this.

Thank you chrome, for moderating this whole tournament. I'm looking forward to more of them!

Well it's been interesting. I'm happy at least one of my faves made it to the final.

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 ....


Yeah I remember reading the description and watching the trailer and thinking ''wow this must be some kind of Reborn! meets Persona 4 shit!!''. Man was I wrong. I painfully watched all 12 episodes since I'm unable to drop shows yet. Though the OP/ED were kinda cool...

Attack on Titan, winner of 2013? I don't think so.
Free! will take that title.

And I really don't think a Bronze Battle is necessary.
I love both Space Bros. and Sakurasou, so I would rather not compare them anymore.
Actually, I LOVE all 4 and I'm happy with results.
Let's just leave it at Shinsekai Yori winning.

As for the Movie Battle, I'm still not so sure how to pick the candidates.
I haven't fully decided if I am going to include movie sequels (like Garden of Sinners)
or not include them at all. But that would be unfair.

Psycho-Pass wasn't too far behind, that's nice. Oh well, I didn't enjoy SSY but I'll give it another go at some point...

So you're gonna do a movie one next? Hmm, I haven't seen too many. Still need to watch Ookami Kodomo no Ame to Yuki actually.

the movies you can separate by decade or 5 years. with that said if a movie is an installment series (ie: kara no kyoukai, break blade) count it as one, if not (ie: naruto, bleach) then count each movie as separate.

rather if the movie is more "stand-alone" that count it as one, for the form the organizer (chrome) can decided if she wants to do one or not. I mean if it wasn't chrome who does it no one will participate, lol.

anyways macross movies would by my choice of pick... or the year 2000 movie of spirited away <- would win ( my dad pestered me for 3 months about this movie and he doesn't even watch anime, wtf? )

Having just rewatched Kara no Kyoukai twice recently, you can safely count it as a single film. It just just happens to be 8.5 hours long, or 9 if you count the epilogue. Otherwise six of my nominations would be Kara no Kyoukai one, two, three, four, five, and seven (six can die in a fire, even if it had important story content in it).
Or if we just limited it to a single representative, I'd vote for the fifth movie: Paradox Spiral.

But that'd drive someone up a wall if they hadn't seen the first four movies beforehand.

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.

The first and second seasons are in order; the OVA is a flashback of Suigintou's, according to Wikipedia it should occur midway through the second anime season (Traumend). The second season is also an original anime based off the first season, and has no relation to the actual manga as far as I'm aware. But I haven't seen Traumend or read the manga, so I'm not sure if it's like filler or if it actually takes the story away from where it should be.

Oh I know, they sold the manga entirely on plot. There was some in every chapter.

It was almost kind of disturbing, like a shady doujinshi.
