4- Another (Umbrella.)
3 - Kokoro connect (Well and seriously-executed and somehow managed, without much by way of visual cues, to convey who was who now. I really want to give this one a 4 too. The only reason I listed it as a 3 is alphabetical order.)
2 - Tonari no kaibutsu-kun (Didn't see it, so it doesn't necessarily deserve last place, but I liked all the others enough that it wasn't fair to put any of them last I like Haru. Chicken is funny.)
1 - Accel world - (I'm watching this now, and while protagonist was initially very annoying, he's improved, and I'm interested in seeing this out. ETA, but I think maybe I liked Tonari no kaibutsu more.)

Oops. Vote change. Didn't recognize "My Little Monster" by its Japanese name, and apparently I didn't bother looking at the image provided. That makes things much harder. Anyway, I guess I'm going to switch 1 and 2 around, because I like Tonari no kaibutsu-kun's Haru more than I like Accel World's Haru, and while I like Accel World's story just fine, I'm not a gamer and didn't really enjoy spending quite so much time viewing in-game battles.

4. Another (I love these kind of animes, had some really creepy moments but the last two episodes were little rushed, lots of people die and dat umbrella scene)
3. Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun (I don't like highschool romance animes but for some reason I actually enjoyed this.)
2. Accel World (Haven't seen this but it seems more interesting then Kokoro Connect)
1. Kokoro Connect (Haven't seen. This isn't my type of anime.)

Yay! A battle I've seen enough of to weigh in on.

4. Kokoro Connect.
-- Much deeper and darker than anything I expected. Fantastic suspense series.

3. Another.
-- I get bored of horror anime pretty quick, but I'll support it anyways.

2. Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun.
-- I enjoyed this one, but it disturbs me for the same reasons Twilight does.

1. Accel World.
-- Neat concept, but the story felt a bit flat after awhile. Might've gotten higher in another battle.

Well, 50% the first round, could have been worse, I suppose.

Another - 4 (Because dark, and such feels, easily the best of these four for me, I wish I could give it more points. Not for young kids.)
Tonari no Kaibutsukun - 3 (Because Haru is certifiable, and I do like an occasional HS romance if it has some quirk to set it apart)
Kokoro Connect - 2 (Because characters were just ok, but what would you do if you suddenly were in (control of) an opposite body?)
Accel world - 1 (Didn't watch, another one to possibly investigate some day)

This round, the 2 and 3 spots were hard to decide: character development vs twisty concept/plot.

4. Kokoro Connect - loved the drama and characters in this series. Inaba ftw. Oh and Michi Random was pretty damn good as well to start off this year.
3. Another - imo, this was suspenseful enough to keep me going with the events, theories, etc. Some of the violence seemed a bit out of place but enjoyable for me.
2. Accel World - the second half kinda killed it for me but the overall theme and direction the show went with kinda pleased me.
1. Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun - pretty strong episodes in the beginning but got a bit mediocre later on.

4. Kokoro connect. It was pretty interesting, although it got a bit predictable. Still alright though.
3. Another - not watched, but I plan to, and i've heard good things ab out it.
2. Accel world - I say I didn't like it, but I still watched it to the end. Still bad though
1. KAibutsu kun- watched a few episodes, and something about it annoyed me.

4. Kokoro Connect - Out of the four, this was the one that captivated me the most.
3. Another - This captivated me as well, but not as much as Kokoro Connect.
2. Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun - It was okay. Not good. Not bad. Just plain throughout.
1. Accel World - First episode was decent, then it went downhill from there.

Up on Hulu now...

Since I had such a different impression than some of the comments here on "Another", which I had only just recently marathoned, does having to wait to watch one show per week instead make any difference in someone's perception of a given series? When you know you can get resolution right away, to me, it feels like a more coherent story. Not trying to convince anyone to change their minds, just truly wondering in general...

Hulu doesn't work in Canada sadly Don't like to use downloads/fansubs so...

Watching weekly can definitely give you a different impression but I actually marathoned Another too, I didn't watch it when it first came out. So I can't say on that show if watching it weekly made a difference. For me the difference in show quality is if it leaves a lasting impression and if I can watch it again. I tried watching Another again but couldn't, knowing the outcome ruined it for me. Compare this to Kokoro Connect, Tonari no Kaibutsu Kun, Tari Tari, BTOOOM! which are all shows I can watch again and again over and over which is good because I bought them all on Blu-ray...

Damn it. I missed the 1st round and Tari Tari got axed. TT_TT

4 - Kokoro Connect
-----| I really enjoyed this one. It's really hilarious. Only the 3rd anime that made me LMAO, literally. && I love Heartseed~♥ I think he's helping to strengthen and make the bonds stronger between the protags~

3 - Another
-----| Haven't seen it but I think this will be a blast. It's from P.A. Works so it gets a 3~ :P

2 - Accel World
-----| Haven't get past the half point on the first episode~

1 - Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun
-----| Too much push-pull in the protagonists' relationships.

4- Another, all around well done anime, a good watch
3- Accel World, had some potential but the action scenes weren't that great and I got tired of the main character's whiny behavior and confidence issues and haven't finished it yet
2- Kokoro Connect, haven't seen it
1- Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun, haven't seen it
