Greetings, anime lovers! I welcome you to the BEST. ANIME. EVER. Tournament!
- Anyone can vote! However, if I believe someone is using an alt account (ex. Someone named Piccolo9001 votes, then someone named Piccolo9002 votes for the same anime) then I will not accept their vote.
- Please post your vote in this topic.
- Please submit the exact name of the anime you're voting for.
- You cannot change your vote once it has been cast.
- If you worry you will not be present for a certain match, you can PM me a vote for that match.
- If you don't understand something about the rules, feel free to PM me and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
A full schedule for the tournament can be found here:

- Each CR user can select up to 12 anime that they personally like.
- The 256 anime that get the most votes will be accepted into the tournament.
- In the unlikely event that I don't get 256 different anime, then I will add anime by clicking Crunchyroll's RANDOM button and adding whatever anime I end up with.
- In the extremely likely event that there is a tie between multiple anime, the anime that received votes first will take priority. This means that you should cast your nominations sooner, rather than later.

Thanks to everyone who participated!!!
① FMA: Brotherhood
Alchemy is bound by the Law of Equivalent Exchange—something the young brothers Edward and Alphonse Elric only realize after attempting human transmutation: the one forbidden act of alchemy. They pay a terrible price for their transgression—Edward loses his left leg, Alphonse his physical body. It is only by the desperate sacrifice of Edward's right arm that he is able to affix Alphonse's soul to a suit of armor. Devastated and alone, it is the hope that they would both eventually return to their original bodies that gives Edward the inspiration to obtain metal limbs called "automail" and become a state alchemist, the Fullmetal Alchemist.
② Madoka Magica
Madoka Kaname and Sayaka Miki are regular high school girls with regular lives, but all that changes when they encounter Kyuubey, a cat-like magical familiar, and Homura Akemi, the new transfer student.
Kyuubey offers them a proposition: he will grant one of their wishes and in exchange, they will each become a magical girl, gaining enough power to fulfill their dreams. However Homura, a magical girl herself, urges them not to accept the offer since everything is not what it seems.
A story of hope, despair, and friendship, Mahou Shoujo Madoka★Magica deals with the difficulties of being a magical girl and the price one has to pay to make a dream come true.
③ Monogatari series
Koyomi Araragi, a third-year high school student, manages to survive a vampire attack with the help of Meme Oshino, a strange man residing in an abandoned building. Though being saved from vampirism and now a human again, several side effects such as superhuman healing abilities and enhanced vision still remain. Regardless, Araragi tries to live the life of a normal student, with the help of his friend and the class president, Tsubasa Hanekawa.
When fellow classmate Hitagi Senjougahara falls down the stairs and is caught by Araragi, the boy realizes that the girl is unnaturally weightless. Despite Senjougahara's protests, Araragi insists he help her, deciding to enlist the aid of Oshino, the very man who had once helped him with his own predicament.
Through several tales involving demons and gods, Bakemonogatari follows Araragi as he attempts to help those who suffer from supernatural maladies.
Vash the Stampede is the man with a $$60,000,000 bounty on his head. The reason: he's a merciless villain who lays waste to all those that oppose him and flattens entire cities for fun, garnering him the title "The Humanoid Typhoon." He leaves a trail of death and destruction wherever he goes, and anyone can count themselves dead if they so much as make eye contact—or so the rumors say. In actuality, Vash is a huge softie who claims to have never taken a life and avoids violence at all costs.
With his crazy doughnut obsession and buffoonish attitude in tow, Vash traverses the wasteland of the planet Gunsmoke, all the while followed by two insurance agents, Meryl Stryfe and Milly Thompson, who attempt to minimize his impact on the public. But soon, their misadventures evolve into life-or-death situations as a group of legendary assassins are summoned to bring about suffering to the trio. Vash's agonizing past will be unraveled and his morality and principles pushed to the breaking point.
Seems like an interesting little tournament. Best of luck to you, Piccolo9001.

Question: Can I vote for FMA (2003) and Brotherhood?
While they are part of the series, the two of them share just enough differences that they could be classified as two different anime.
