Come on, Magi fans, where are all of you? What happened to that spirit that beat Log Horizon? We can't let Magi go down without a fight, can we? Remember, every vote counts!



Honestly, there are/were a surprisingly amount of haters to Log Horizon LOL! It probably quadrupled in size when it edged out Golden Time in the Revenge Of the Fallen. So, I imagine it getting annihilated when it comes back

My Vote: Magi

That was an easy decision given that I haven't watched this season of The World God Only Knows. Anyway, the show really makes its money on the second half after a first half that left me all wondering what all that jumping around was about, and it finally was answered in a big way at the end. The second half is the best part of this series to this point, so it's pretty obvious that it's one of the best of this past year's shows.

The forum works in mysterious ways. One should never underestimate the collective that is Crunchyroll forums. When the time comes for the collective to be called to order, "they," will make their presence known.

It has been out for 6 years already, considering it is the most popular and most read LN around, I assumed fans of it had already read it. I spoilered the next comment I made about it. Lastly, it is a side character whose importance is not relevant until MUCH LATER. That is a spoiler, so I will not say, but as you know her, she is not important. At all.

Against my better judgment, I spoilered it. Happy?

Because we interpreted the rules, and even the spirit, of the scoring differently our scores are not weighted equally. The rating system is skewed more in favor of strategic scores than merit based scores. I thought, based on the rules, we were supposed, to at least try, to rate things more in line with how we normally would rate series. Of course I realize some would try and be strategic if they really wanted a show in or out badly enough. So, in that post I was more lamenting the fact that people voting with the mindset of our normal ratings of series, like myself, would have less of an impact on the average scores due to the strategic outliers; nothing more and nothing less.


I totally know what you mean. You were just pointing out that chrome said to rank each show on how we actually felt and not to be strategic. I for one voted honestly, but I know a lot of others voted strategic.

So next year we should definitely not have an "honesty vote" and just have a "yes or no"-type system like you proposed.

VOTE: Magi

kinda outta thinks to say after 2 rounds of voting for this hahhaha.
the story is great, characters are great, the jinn powers are awesome and sinbad is badass.
the best thing about magi is the its has some many different aspects to it, and blends them all perfectly. and it very well written in the way that the characters separate and unite so fluidly. reminds me alot of fullmetal alchemist in that way.

I'll be honest, I haven't watched TWOGK. I'll watch a few harems here and there, but they're not exactly my cup of tea. It might be a really good one, so my apologies to its fans.

Magi is definitely getting my vote. I won't even deny that I might be slightly biased over the fact that it's one of my current obsessions, however there's got to be a reason as to why it's one. Personally, I find the story engaging and the characters attaching. I love the fact that it takes time to flesh out the antagonist, so it's not just a generic 'villain' that you end up with, but rather one where you find yourself questioning on it. There's several other things I'd say, but I fear I might end up being spoilerish to anyone who hasn't watched it yet. I'll just finish this by saying that the soundtrack for season 2 is by far even better than season 1 in my opinion and OST are always a bonus in making me like an anime.

Vote goes to Magi.

I thought she just got hurt pretty badly.

Waaaait, did people not read the LN that came out many many years ago still?



Checked, came out 6 years ago. /sigh. Shame on you.

The LN was licensed in the west just a few weeks ago and hasn't been released yet.


So basically you assumed that everyone who liked the Index anime either:
1- Knew or learned Japanese and either imported the novel or traveled to Japan.
2- Read it on illegal sharing scanlation sites.
3- Time traveled.

That about right?

Completely correct sir. You cannot call yourself a fan if you do not partake in illegal activities before it is licensed in your country. How do you think many people become fans of anime and manga anyways? How come so many people play games not licensed in their countries yet? If it gets translated legally, sure I'll buy it. But until they decided to stop hating money, I will keep "breaking the law".

C'mon man...you really can't say that. Honestly, what you were saying yesterday kept coming back in my mind since i was surprised that you expected everyone who likes Index to have read the original content.

What about fan of, say, One Piece who are just starting out and really like it? Can i just jump and tell them everything that happens in Marineford arc just because it's been out for a while? Naruto? Bleach? It's a spoiler regardless. Doesn't bother me for this series perse, but i feel bad for those who didn't know that and are upset at being spoiled.

Of course, there's nothing wrong with reading manga and LNs on those sites if they aren't available in your country. It's their problem if they don't want to bring it here. And it's not like it affects anyone whether I click on the link to read the chapters or not. I completely agree.

But you can't expect everyone to think like that. Especially not on Crunchyroll forums.
