4. Space Brothers - Easily my favorite show to watch in the whole tournament and I really can't see this ending up anything other than a masterpiece. It's already got enough emotion and development to place it among the best anime I've seen. Also, the pacing does not bother me in the least. It's a show about realizing your dreams and that usually doesn't happen overnight. The whole point of the show is about the journey there and the amazing people you come across taking that journey.

3. Psycho-Pass - I could've gone either way on the top two but ultimately there's no way I could justify ranking Space Brothers below Psycho-Pass. Though I can definitely make a strong case for Psycho-Pass being one of the best shows in recent years. The show has a great storyline and nothing in the show felt out of place, at all, not the hyper-violence, not the lofty philosophical exposition, nor any of its characters. It may sound weird but I could almost feel all the work and sheer production quality that went into the show and how it felt like I was watching a set of movies and not just a sci-fi anime. Everything about Psycho-Pass seemed to fit very much in place and I don't see that enough in anime at the moment.

2. Moyashimon Returns - Funny and sweet. I think this show has more heart than people give it credit for, kind of like Natsuyuki Rendezvous. It might not rank with the best slice-of-life series or comedies but it's certainly a show I might revisit again because the characters are what made a memorable impression on me.

1. Mouretsu Space Pirates - Haven't seen it, but even then there's not much chance of it being the best show out of this tournament, let alone the best in this group.



All the more reason I love you Ku <3

You need some reasons for the ranks for them to count.

Please; even besides that I really like reading about why people did or didn't like specific shows.


Until the finals, it's not worth the effort.

and yes, my votes still count.

4. Psycho-Pass - Deep story, engaging plot. Loved the show, overall. Can't think of anything other reason right now, busy atm.

3. Space Brothers - I have not watched this show yet, but it's on my to-do list. I'll give it 4 points because of the positive reviews and recommendations.

1. Moyashimon Returns - never watched it.

1. Mouretsu Space Pirates - never watched it.

Oh, darn. When I saw there was a new post I though the next round had started. So sad it hasn't.

But, yeah, I'm finding this really enjoyable, and would love to see another Battle game, though I imagine it's a fair amount of work from the one giving us this entertainment. Thank you chrome_mist!

Seconded, organizing and tallying all this must take quite a bit of time.

I have to admit though, I immediately thought a competition for 2012's best villain would be sweet.

Space Brothers
Kids On the Slope
Natsume
and Hyouka
Thought those would all make it and I'm happy to see they did

Others I thought would make it based solely on popularity:
Sword art Online
Nisemonogatari


Shockers:
1. Shinsekai Yori

2. Another & Kokoro Connect - I personally REALLY liked them but I didn't think they would make it this far



What I learned from this thread: I need to go watch "The Daily lives of High School Boys" and "Sakurasou"


get better chromie I'll give some reasons in the semis but I've found I just repeat myself in these battles most of the time.

Kokoro Connect was surprising; I thought no one watched it because it superficially looked like K-on. But I guess it was vindicated at some point.

Shin Sekai Yori and Another getting through didn't surprise me. Disturbingly violent shows are rarely unsuccessful (*cough* AoT *cough*), though I'm in the "love Shin Sekai Yori, dislike Another" camp; don't have much tolerance for hilariously clueless horror story protagonists.

Chunnibyou getting knocked out was weird. Apparently people really like Kuroko's Basketball, and suicidal toast. In non-snark mode: I guess I need to get around to watching Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita...

Sorry about that! But I know what you mean, this forum has been really fun. I've been checking for updates for the past few hours and when I didn't see any, I thought I'll just suggest the next battle.
