Congrats to From the New World for winning the 2012 Battle. I loved the series and it is very deserving of the crown. I enjoyed seeing everyone's opinions on all the series and comparing them against my own. Thanks to Chrome for hosting this entire contest - it is much appreciated. I suppose I'll see you all again at the 2013 Battle (or whatever battle pops up next.) Either way, I hope to have finally watched Space Brothers by then - wish me luck.

I think the 2013 battle would have a strong contender in Kara no Kyoukai if it's eligible.

No, Chrome already decided we don't want to do that. We are done with 2012 anime here.

Thanks for the update! I didn't browse the other pages of the forum anymore.

They're omitting Paradox Spiral. INSTANT HATRED.

Edit: Actually I can't think of how they'd possibly cut Paradox Spiral into episodes, so I'll let that pass. And they dropped the sixth movie, which is a huge net gain. 1-4 & 7 should do just fine for 13 episodes I think. Ok, I'm happy.

And I could totally see Kara no Kyoukai sweeping everything else we'll see this year. I hope CR gets to stream it.

That's quite alright. However, I never made it sound like (or said) that Gintama was crude all throughout. I only stated that the scenes I personally selected and pasted into the spoiler box were of that sort and even pointed out other good points about Gintama. By the way, I edited that post before you replied back but you didn't catch it so here you go!

EDIT: Here are some videos. It's on the lesser side in terms of what Gintama truly has to offer on serious topics/fights but I thought it'd help.

I'm not sure I'd call Gintama crude, at least not by American standards.

Wacky would probably be a better word.

Yeah, I should have said wacky instead of crude. It's a better fitting adjective.

P.S. Gurren Lagann is great. I can't say the same for Wagnaria since I only read the manga for it, but I can say that it's pretty cute from what I read.


Wow, was that really over a year ago? At least I was able to find this forum. Anyways, I finally finished season 1 of Gintama today, and I will admit that I thought it was good. You're right, wacky is a great way to describe it. I think my favorite part might be Gintoki's dialogue; it is hilarious. I didn't care for it when it did get crude, but luckily this wasn't overbearing or constant. While I won't rank it among my favorite anime, I did enjoy the series overall, which is impressive since I was initially against watching it.

What's funny looking back at these posts over a year ago is that I actually haven't watched Gurren Lagann yet. For some reason I guess I keep pushing it back. I did watch Wagnaria!!, which I greatly enjoyed, as well as others including Fate/Zero, which was outstanding.
