4. Another (Great horror anime. Really enjoyed the male and female protagonist)
3. Accel World (Intereting series. Male protagonist annoyed me with the whining at times but overall definitely enjoyed it)
2. Monster (enjoyed the male and female protagonist but the last episode ended and I felt like "So, that's it?")
1. Kokoro Connect (similar feeling to Monster. Wasn't amazingly impressed nor disappointed)

Ah, this time I've seen enough of them to vote on:

4 - My Little Monster: As with many shoujo romances, there was quite a bit of dithering between the protagonists. Yet it felt absolutely fine, because there was always a strong comedic foundation supporting it to prevent the dithering from annoying me. Some unique yet realistic characters made this a joy to watch.

3 - Kokoro Connect: It was really tough to have to put this second. I loved how the characters sorted out their problems by talking to people rather than by internalising their issues, and the relationships just flowed so easily. Things that felt like flaws in the writing early on came back as important character points later, which I thought was really clever. The only reason it's below My Little Monster is because of some weaker storylines and rushed conclusions.

2 - Accel World: Solid action series. Some characters I didn't like, and some parts got too descriptive, but when the series got going, it really got going, and could be really exciting and action-packed at its best.

1 - Another: I was tempted to watch this, but avoided it in the end because I'm not a big horror fan and didn't have a lot of faith in P.A. Works at the time.

4 - Kokoro Connect (Michi Random put this show on another level, and the rest of the show is probably just a bit better than My Little Monster)
3 - My Little Monster (A wholly enjoyable show with interesting characters, but not much else)
2 - Accel World (I'll get around to watching it eventually, but if it's in any way comparable to SAO, then I'll at least take it over Another, and it's probably below My Little Monster. But like I said, I haven't seen it -- maybe it's the pinnacle of human achievement.)
1 - Another (It was good enough to make me want to finish it. The characters were just alright, and the plot felt a bit contrived and/or boring to me. It was a horror series on the surface, with really not much going on below the surface. Being that the horror wasn't so much horrific as "let's see how the next person gets killed," I wasn't really impressed with it)

4 - My Little Monster: This was my first venture into Shoujo outside of Fruits Basket and Ouran High School Host Club. Without getting too involved in the details, I'll just say that I liked everything about this show. Wasn't overly dramatic and I liked the couple, and I was continuously surprised with how much I enjoyed each episode.

3- Another: I've seen 8 episodes of this, and I'm a big fan so far. There are lots of stylistic touches here and there that add to the creepiness, so much of which are absent from horror movies today. Some things irritate me a little bit, but that's not too much of a problem, since it's plenty horrific (and clever) when it needs to be. EDIT: Just finished it, it'll stay in this spot.

2 - Kokoro Connect: Haven't actually seen it yet, but apparently it's the bees knees. Admittedly, the gender flip idea makes me uncomfortable but the social commentary should be what makes it stand apart from other shows.

1 - Accel World: Also want to see this, but I feel like it wouldn't be much more than a solid action series. So, the worst of 4 very good animes.

4. Another - I loved the entire concept, reminded me of Final Destination. I liked the art, as well.

3. Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun - I loved this serious, it was hilarious and emotional at the same time. I enjoyed watching it a lot.

2. Accel World - Interesting plot, kept me hooked but didn't seem to amaze or arouse my interest too much.

1. Kokoro Connect - Never watched it.

4 Another (Great suspense, eerie atmosphere, okay ending.)
3 Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun (Adorable characters, hilarious at times, okay romance story.)
2 Kokoro Connect (Interesting story, but toward the end, characters became hard to relate to or to even care about.)
1 Accel World (Idea seemed cool, but I couldn't stand any of the characters.)

Sad to see Tari Tari get axed. But Ano Natsu gets another shot which is good

Out of the 4 in this round, I've only seen Another. Since I have refused to get Hulu, I had no legal venue to see Accel World.

4. Another(The first half was great. Umbrellas and elevators became scary. Last episode almost became a comedy).
3. Accel World (Average story, average lead, meh)
2. Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun (Nothing special but better than Kokoro Connect)
1. Kokoro Connect(RL bullying for the loss)

4. Another - Dark and gritty anime but some of the themes are poorly explained or some scene doesn't make any sense at all. Overall, this is an above average anime but they could have done it better.

3. Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun - A good RomCom Shoujo anime but I find the male lead's naivete somewhat annoying.

2. Kokoro Connect - Never seen the show but I heard a lot of positive response from various sources.

1. Accel World - Anime with a good premise, killed off by sub-par storytelling.

4. Kokoro Connect - I thoroughly enjoyed the drama, romance, and humor in this series.
3. Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun - I really like the humorous relationship between the two main characters. While the rest of the series wasn't as good, in my opinion, as the first two episodes, it was still a good watch. Although, I do think it had a poor conclusion.
2. Another - The mystery aspect of the show was very good, and the art was also very impressive, as typical from P.A. Works. I wasn't as fond of the Final Destination-like horror elements of the series.
1. Accel World - It is on my Hulu queue; I just haven't gotten around to watching it yet.

How this works:

Elimination Round:
►Choose 8 anime from each season and post them in this thread.
We will proceed with the actual tournament once 32 anime have been chosen.

Tournament Proper:
►I will be choosing 4 anime, one from each group (Winter, Spring, Summer & Fall) and pit them against each other.
►What you're gonna do is to rank them from 1 to 4. 4 being the highest (most loved) and 1 being the lowest (least loved).
►Don't just randomly give points to shows. You have to give your reason/s.
