As cay032692 and phong128992 have already said, no matter the voting method, there's going to be dishonesty and biases.

Even with the yes/no voting system, people could simply say yes to shows that they haven't even watched and say no to shows they want to sabotage. There's no way you can get around it really.
Every voting system we do is going to be flawed!

It can't be helped!

Hmm, I voiced a concern about this voting system, but it wasn't for concern over dishonesty. This is a popularity contest after all, you'd only be "dishonest" to yourself. One should vote however they want, it's your opinion. My concern was that the voting this round was gonna get convoluted with the requirement being that it was vote only for those you want to vote for.

I was wondering if there would be a threshold for a series to be counted. In other words, if a show only got "x" amounts of votes, then it just wasn't popular enough and shouldn't be counted even if it had a high average.
Or better yet, if one show got an average that was lower than another, but the show with the higher average had like 30% less votes overall. Would the fact that one vote more attention be taken into account?

I am already not allowed to vote with honestly with the constraint given, Just beacuse a show made it into a tourney does not mean I do not believe the score deserves below a 5. With a sample size that is so small, the fairness of the voting system is so intangible, that I could careless what this system is. It is a shame for those of you who wish for honesty but really, none of this matters in anyway, if the sample size of the voting had been much larger than it is, half of the shows that have made it so far wouldn't even be here. I think I am almost laughing a bit at the whole honesty justification being promote, the amount of bias within most vote being hilarious, and to hear it being promoted kinda irks me. Anyway Cool stuff.


I just want to reiterate, by a "dishonest vote" I mean that the philosophy behind the vote is contrary to what I believe Chrome intends; for us to vote the shows on what we feel their merits are. You are certainly able to vote as you please so long as you give your reasons. If your reasoning is purely for strategy, then that's fine if you explain it as such. I don't buy the idea that since someone can't give a show a 1 to 5 it prevents anyone from voting how they truly feel. As Phong said, you can still vote "honestly" as a 6 is nearly the same as a 5 or less statistically speaking if we are all voting based on merit. If people could give 1's things would get way too skewed in the averages for them to mean anything at all as Chrome explained as well.

Really, my point was about how us not all being on the same page as to how we made up our ratings would in effect diminish people voting with the merit of the shows in mind versus those with purely strategy in mind. If we are not all on the same page as to how we are supposed to vote then it will give outliers, i.e. extremes either way, more value than they normally would have in the averages. I guess it was naive of me to think we would all try to rate shows based on what we thought they deserved and not try to strategically eliminate or advance certain shows with our ratings.

*Shrugs*, I guess the revenge part of the battle's title should make sense now.

I suppose the simple question would be.

Which anime do "you" want to win? This tournament is just the most twisted, non-linear method of approaching the goal. Which is more fun than a straight line.

Gonna go with TWGOK, just cause I'm a little miffed that Magi put Log Horizon in the Revenge of the Fallen match in the first place.

Magi - I really enjoyed this, the cast of characters is so freaking great, in fact, many of them steal the show(Mogamett, Titus, and Scheherazade to name a few).

OHHHHHH WOWOWWWW...... MAGI this fast?

OKAY>>> MAGI !!!!!!.
There is no way I'm not voting for this. Magi was awesome for me. It was an incredible anime. I really really liked it. Its just too bad Morgiana didn't have too much screen time. But the last few episodes of Magi were pretty sensational. I loved how everyone was all badass when they were fighting. Come on Magi! Pull through again!

The World God Only Knows
This IS the anime that turned me into an otaku. I cosplay as Keima at cons and stuff
I support this anime 100%. I have spend several hundred dollars buying goods from this anime

This anime made me change my view of bishoujo games. At first, I thought they were for losers who can't get a girlfriend, but now, I enjoy them myself, so much.

I also collect the manga. Getting them internationally shipped to me is more than worth it

Grand Battle #1: My Votes Goes to The World God Only Knows: Goddesses Arc


My earlier post on TWGOK. I haven't seen Magi, and this is one of those cases where I'm certain it wouldn't mattered if I had. TWGOK 3 is the best installment of the franchise by far, and stands on its own as an excellent show. Magi may have politics, but for me politics will never be as worthwhile as matters of the heart. TWGOK is an 8/10 on its own. That's more than enough for it to move on in this tourney.


EDIT: Already looking at the votes, I think this is about the time where I start being really disappointed in the world as shows I think need to move on get the boot.

EDIT 2: Oh, man, just looked at the bracket...Hataraku Maou-sama! gets Attack on Titan? Well, it was probably bound to happen eventually, but man. I don't look forward to that battle very much.

The World God Only Knows



This gets the vote easily. The World God Only Knows in my opinion came back for a 3rd season with it's strongest season yet. First, do not listen to the haters that hated how it skipped so much of the manga. Sure it did, but it would have been repetitive and from what I understand. Season 2 didn't sell that well at all because of it. Based off the anime presentation, this told a solid story and refreshed the series to one of the best harems.

This time around the characters were splendid. Keima being amazing from start to finish. As we know since season 1, this entire thing felt kind of like a game to him. Something that seemed to be like a nuisance and prevents him from doing his daily gaming life. Because of the collar around of his neck, he has to go around conquering individuals for if he doesn't life threatening conditions await him. It becomes an epic tale of him realizing that this is starting to become more than an actual game or whatever he views it to be. It actually effects the emotions of the people around him. There are times Keima is aware and it effects him too. I will never forget the scene where one of the conquests to find the Goddess' deeply hurt him emotionally. That scene tore at my feelings. It was just as impactful and sad as the manga. This was one scene I knew was coming and it delivered. While it seems I am giving praise to Keima only. In fact, all of the characters did well in the story. The scene I am talking about earlier is due to one of the girls. The chemistry and relationship we see between the two become very heartwarming. There was a point I was on the #team favorite girl. I would explain farther, but we get into the Spoiler details which I am trying to evade. Like most Harems, it is really character based. Almost every important character within the story gets great screen time and fleshes them out a little more. Haqua (my waifu btw) more specifically. From playing a little role in season 2, to playing a huge role in season 3. It is fantastic to see how both the MC and Haqua work as a team to capture the Goddess'. However, take note, not all the girls show up again from the previous series. While watching, I was curious to see how all the characters would have played out and in my opinion. They had the right balance. Also, I won't lie. Near the end there, I almost teared up.



The animation in this series is superb. It is among one of my favorite of last year. Mainly because of the colors used on the angels. I was wondering how these would turn out since I am used to reading the manga and I saw some sketches here and there, but I was truly amazed how some of the Goddess' were animated. More specifically there wings (Look at the bottom picture for an example). In some anime, the wings of some things/people are not really that detailed. They would lack texture to define them as wings and just make it look like piece of tarp or something on them. Not here, the wings got incredible texture. There are also lots of times Keima would be put on the screen that would signify him as a god or someone that is legendary. Also, that opening. Loved every minute of the opening. I normally skip the openings while watching anime. However this one, I did not. The entire opening and the lyrics pretty much tell you more than what a normal person just viewing it realizes. This OP splendidly explains and tells you the epicness that is about to come and you realize. That it is not a game any more There are multiple OST's that describe this show beautifully and I have gotten a hold of some them thankfully. "The Memory of My First Love" is probably one of my (if not) my favorite ost from it. Why? Mainly from the impact it delivered and how perfect it fit with the mood of the episode at the time. Will probably never forget that scene since it felt honest and true to a certain characters feelings. Lastly, the scenes where each of the Goddess' appear in full power (with wings, glow, and all) are breath taking.



There is a lot more I can write, but we would probably be going into Spoiler territory which I don’t want to do for people new to the series and if they are actually reading this lol. Overall, I enjoyed the 3rd season a lot. It took the harem genre and evolved it. This set the genre in another level and contained quite the story and characters to make it a fantastic showing. One of my personal favorites, already have season 1 and 2. Can't wait to own the physical copy of season 3!
