This is a vote (if it's not too early). It was hard to pare some of these down to just 8 for one season, especially Summer and Fall...

I also threw together a quick page with 2013 separated by season , shamelessly plagiarizing TV Tropes, if you want to see a concise text list of shows for cut-n-paste reference, or to help you remember. Neregate charts are all fine and lovely, but you can't paste text lists from pictures...Don't hate on me too much if I missed anything...

Winter:
Nekomonogatari (Kuro) (because Shaft, nuff said)
Chihayafuru 2 (because why isn't S3 out already)
Encouragement of climb (Because I have a weakness for SOLs)
Oreshura (because, yeah, so what if it still ended up a harem, it was a twist at first, and it referenced JoJo's BA)
GJ-bu (GJ Club) (Because another SOL, and the girls were the ones in control)
Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai NEXT (because I wish I didn't have any friends like those, too)
Kotoura-san (because best first half of an opening episode ever. Just wish it would have held up that way)
Bakumatsu Gijinden Roman (Because the OP song was so good, I had to learn it on guitar)

Spring:
Hataraku Maou-sama! (Consistently funny, love the fish out of water who points out absurdities genre)
Aku no Hana (Because after the first episode this was dark and gripping)
Attack on Titan (Because, just join the hype, you know you want to)
My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU (because Hachiman's philosophy. And dat teacher...)
Suisei no Gargantia (because Chamber is awesome)
To Aru Kagaku no Railgun S (because 20,000 Misakas can't be wrong)
Yuyushiki Schoolgirl Series (because it was a silly slice of friendship)
Haiyore! Nyarko-san W (because pop culture references)

Summer:
Monogatari Series Second Season (because Shaft, again)
Silver Spoon (because educational and real with likeable characters)
Servant × Service (because this funny SOL wasn't high school based)
Love Lab (because satire on high school romantic comedies)
Eccentric Family (because Tanuki are among us, and poking at traditions which keep us doing cruel things)
The World God Only Knows Megami-hen (because not just a harem king, but a world savior)
Rozen Maiden Third season (because the earlier series weren't surreal enough with just live dolls, this added dimensions)
Kin-iro Mosaic (because diabetes-inducing cuteness)

Fall:
Non Non Biyori (because Renge-chan was adorable, and there was more to Candy Store than you thought)
Kyousogiga (because visually and emotionally amazing)
White Album 2 (because emotional roller-coaster ride, and the music. Still wanted TeamThreesome ending though)
Kill la Kill (because Trigger really took this over the top)
Yowamushi Pedal (because underdogs need hope too)
Gingitsune (because calming, sometimes funny SOL, again, my weakness)
Log Horizon (because, I'm not sure why... not a gamer, but liked the strategy explained. Plus Akatsuki...)
Outbreak Company (because stick it to the man, and do the right thing..)

Any idea when our first vote is? Last year's preliminary votes were end of April, but then again, so was the first post. Also, thanks in advance for the hard work, chrome. Looking forward to it.



The round for nominations will be starting soon.
Tourney proper will start on April 16th.

If you know how it works, then sure.
But I'm in the middle of editing the thread now so
for those of you who don't know what to to do just
wait a little longer so you can vote.

Either Attack on Titan or Kill la Kill. Very few other shows were hardly as entertaining or exciting.

If the winner is not among the following, then I will have no trust left for this community.

Chihayafuru
Oregairu
Flowers of Evil
Silver Spoon
Monogatari
Eccentric Family
Kyousougiga
Nagi no Asukara

Aku no Hana will be lucky to make it past the selection phase.

Yay someone else may vote Magi with me.


Is it really that unpopular for you to make a statement like that? Magi is amazing! especially The Kingdom of Magic <3

An important factor is how many people have seen it, which'll decide how many votes it can hope to get. Gatchaman Crowds and Kyousougiga deserve to get pretty far, but they might get cut early due to their small viewer count.

So this is kind of like a quality evaluation, and a popularity evaluation, rolled into one.

It's possible to sway people a little if you argue strongly in favor of something they haven't seen, but still difficult.

8 is just the upper limit. You don't have to pick 8, just pick the ones you want. But that's kind of the reason for this thread; hopefully by the end, there'll be enough discussion that you'll want to see a few more of them.

Edited the post. Forgot to mention that bit.
You could pick at most 8 shows from each season.
It could be less but no more than 8.
