You all should remember how the harem master tourney went...

Harem Battle: My Vote Goes to The World God Only Knows: Goddesses Arc



I should begin this by saying that TWGOK's place in this tournament should have nothing to do with the fact that it is a harem or that there is a wondrously eclectic collection pretty girls.

I liked TWGOK 1 & 2. They were fun, if insubstantial, harem romcom shows that were just a little bit more fun and more clever than the rest of the genre. TWGOK 3 is so far and away superior to those seasons and everything else in the harem genre that it's almost an injustice to compare them. As much as I hate the phrase "deconstruction," I think that's exactly what TWGOK became this season, a show that truly looked into the inherent absurdities and contradictions of the harem genre and demonstrated exactly what the consequences would be when the fantasy dissolves.

By raising the stakes, Keima is pushed as a character and as a person to grow. It's devastating to see the emotional damage he suffers, because he essentially has had no choice. He's never had a choice. The raw emotions and the true vulnerability that this show expresses would be enough on their own to win TWGOK this battle, but combine that with the strong writing and the meta-implications in the genre and you have yourself a winner.

I hold this show in very high regard indeed. It absolutely deserves to go on.

My Vote goes to TWGOK3

Keima is an amazing MC. I really enjoy the themes of this show and think it's easily one of the best harems you can find. In this arc specifically Keima makes some really awesome progress as a character which really made me enjoy this series even more than the previous arcs. I truly think this show is excellent and deserves to move on to the next round.

Haganai NEXT was not a bad show. It actually made some huge leaps from it's first arc. Much deeper story and character made it very enjoyable, but it fell short for me compared to TWOGK so it will have to take 2nd.

Well, I didn't think the last round would end in a tie. Still, not a bad outcome.

Anyway, where can i watch Haganai? I don't think it's on Crunchyroll.

TWGOK.

Relative to the first season Haganai next was kind of a letdown. The only really good thing was the scientist girl telling the protag off. Harems live and die on their protagonist, and the TWGOK guy was really good, the haganai one not as much.

Edit: That bit was brilliant though.

troll vote

i can't vote, because i like both of them equally. i like twgok series more but this specific season was a bit of a downer. so next ties with it.

flipped a coin and it landed in the side. so my vote is whoever is losing before the vote ends

anywho, if i remember correctly you didn't want us do anything but vote in the previous years because it was harder to keep track of the votes.

I've watched neither, so maybe I can do the same as above poster?

^.^

kinda regret not voting last round, could've broken the tie...
Ok, I'll vote this round, even though I didn't enjoy either anime.


Voting for Haganai Next because the anime made me laugh out loud a few times... especially the condom scene.

Just pick TWGOK and be done with it.

Oh, whoops. I meant just pick one of them and vote, or abstain altogether. Trolling the votes based on whoever is losing isn't really a very nice thing to do to those people who are busy writing out longer posts explaining why they want a specific show to go through.

Can I skip TWGOK 1-2 and go straight to 3? It's the only one that sounds interesting...

The World God Only Knows easily gets my vote. Season three was a pretty solid season for sure. Keima got some character development for the first time in this season. Plus, it was nice to see a bunch of returning characters. I guess you could say that this season is where the actual plot of the story starts.

No you cannot skip them. They're vital to understanding season three. The first two seasons are plenty fun anyway.
