Battle 2

4. Golden Time
I really loved this show. The characters were very real(if you dont think so then you apparently havn't had a crazy GF before haha) and it was a nice change of pace from the typical high school setting. It had a pretty well thought out plot (outside of the overused tropes) and those feels... oh man those feels were so real for me! It broke my heart! Second half got pretty crazy and ended way too quick but i still think it was an outstanding anime and was one of my favorites of the year. Team Koko for lyfe!

3. Haganai Next
Fun show with some interesting points. Lacked in story to a degree. I can't really say i was super impressed with it but it was still worth watching.

2. Henneko
Cute but some big plot holes. Not my favorite.

1. Love Lab
I didnt get to see this, but i've read enough reviews to know i don't need to so it gets my bottom spot.

4 - Golden Time: start start off with; KAGA KOKO IS BEST GIRL!!! this show was amazing, the characters were so good and very human(every one has had that one CRAZY girlfriend),everything felt so real and alive, that you could help but feel for all the characters. the story was really cool, although the whole memory loss triagle thing could be kinda annoying at times but it has an awesome conclusion(thanks to the most bro of friends) and one of best romances ive seen recently.

3 - Henneko: by now, im getting kinda tired of harems, but this one was fairly interesting, a pretty cool premise and story. it has some good characters, main is funny and the tsutsukukashis are great, though azusa's character is left out a little, but by the end, all the inter character relations are pretty cool

2 - Haganai Next: like i said, getting tired of harems. this ones pretty funny, with some interesting characters, but the story is to lacking for me with no interesting plot points like henneko.

1 -Love lab - this one is not for me, never watched it.

4 - Haganai NEXT - For me this was far more enjoyale than the first season was. Probably because I had already got attached to (some of) the characters, which took a long time during the first season - and this attachment continued to increase as the series went along. After all, this is a series that is completely driven by its characters.
3 - Golden Time - Despite not being much of a fan of either of the two main characters (indeed at various times during the series I wished for both of them to just drop dead), the series as a whole was a good one. And rather thought provoking, too.
2 - Love Lab - too much of its humour was cringeworthy to get a higher spot than this. It did have some great moments, though.
1 - HenNeko - dropped first episode.

4. Haganai NEXT: Just as fun as the first season and with that ending hope there's a third.

3. Henneko: Some of this show was really irritating to watch but the twists at the end where done well.

2. Love Lab: Had some funny moments but it got repetitive quickly.

1. Golden Time: Even though I liked most of the characters I don't like shows based around amnesia so when they started to focus more on Ghost Banri I dropped the show, only made it to about episode 8.

4. Love Lab- Really enjoyed this, didn't have high expectation going in but, it was a really great watch for me
3. Haganai- I remember enjoying it quit a bit when i saw it a few months ago
2. Golden Time- overall I enjoyed it, but I had issues with the way the plot and characters progressed in the second half
1. Henneko- I think was ok, and the idea was interesting but it just turned out fairly mediocre

4 love lab, cute and fun, and a positive surprise. That's always good.
3 henneko, always felt the ending was a bit weak, but interesting. Stupid cats.
2 haganai. Kind of annoying at points to be honest, it made me feel the 'just get together already!' more than most
1 Golden Time, I coudln't get throuhg the first episode, no idea why.

4 - Haganai Next : My best overall experience of these four shows, the characters are fun to watch and it does what I want it to do, enjoy me with funny stuff.

3 - Golden Time : This could have been the 4 pointer but I got somewhat dissapointed with it, but it was still a good show and I liked some of the characters. ( Nana I am looking at you! ).

2 - Love Lab : Cute show, better then Henneko and therefore it gets 2points from me.

1- Henneko : I don't like this show, well yeah it is cute but .... Not so funny in my opinion sadly.

4-HENNEKO Loved the art style and story and over all enjoyable

3-HAGANAI Next Great story and characters. Great squeal and left me wanting the next season.

2-Golden Time Hard to choose between the top 3 because all were great but the top 2 beat this because this left me wanting more from the series

1-Love Lab Haven't seen this so it is only fair that it comes last from my 4

I can't believe Nekomonogatari lost! ;_; I guess too many never saw it since it was only on Daisuki recently. Ah well, we still have Monogatari...

BATTLE 2

1 Haganai NEXT, I just couldn't get into this one. I tried a few times. Maybe I need to try again

2 Henneko, this show was sometimes fun, other times tragic, ended in a rush. Too bad, could have been better executed.

3 Love Lab, wonderful comedy, fun music, wish there had been some actual love in the end but I suppose that might have ruined it a bit.

4 Golden Time, amazing mix of comedy and psychological tragedy, with the tea club, scientific religion clan in the beginning, then the love triangle and finally Banri and Kouko in the end for a better ending than the novel. Yui Horie did the awesome OP and ED songs. Beautifully done.


Will you still love me when I'm no longer young and beautiful?
Yes, of course I will always love you!

This was pretty difficult to rank. I liked all four of these at one point, but each had some flaws. So I tried to remember which ones I anticipated most back then

4 Love Lab -- Started out as a very funny satire of romance tropes . Would have preferred that it hadn't tried to actually develop any real romance, or that it would have had a light Yuru-Yuri/Yuyushiki kind of end instead.
3 Henneko -- Not as consistently funny, but loved the kudere version of Tsukiko. Liked that the "hentai" moments were played more for laughs than actual fan service. Had some pretty WTF moments just before the end but cuteness and humor, still.
2 Haganai -- Another harem that seemed for awhile like it might be an anti-harem, but of course it wasn't. Waiting to see how/if it will resolve, though. I'm torn between wanting the childhood friend to win for once, vs wanting the, ahem, "biggest" girl to win. Usually it's neither.
1 Golden Time -- Started off liking it and being interested, but even though I finished hoping for something to resolve better, it just got more soapy. I never "felt" Koko, she just seemed too self-centered or something.

Oh yeah, Nagi-Asu and Sunday Without God will advance.

This battle is kind of hard.
Golden Time - 4 (Because J.C. Staff did a good job, this was not as epic as Toradora!, but it is a lot better than these 3 below.)
Love Lab - 3 ( Because of the funny sequences and jokes. Lots and lots of fun.)
Haganai NEXT - 2 ( If I had watched it, I think I'd have given 4 or 3, because I loved the first season, I wonder why I haven't watched it.)
HenNeko - 1 ( I haven't watched it, but this could be like Love Lab, maybe? I will watch it someday.)

4 Golden Time it was nice not having a high school romance anime (though the characters acted like teenagers at times). Still confused a bit about Linda in this whole story. But, I think Koko made the most progress and if I could mention one thing I would have liked to see more of the Tea Club! :D

3 Hagani Next Further development from Season 1 and Senna taking the first huge step. Hoping to see where this story goes following the final episode of Season 2

2 Henneko started off strong but I couldn't to isn't it after episode 10. MC dude grated my nerves over time. It's still in my queue to finish. Maybe one day...

1 Love Lab didn't have a lot of time to give this a chance watched pieces of it here and there, but it's on the back burner for when I'm bored to marathon it.

4) Haganai NEXT
I'm not really a harem person, but this was one of the few harems that really hit my sense of humor. The 1st season was good, but the second was even better with more character development and storyline. Really, really enjoyed it. Waiting for the announcement of the third season!

3) Golden Time
I've been meaning to watch this, since a lot of my friends really liked it. The plot seems interesting too, for a rom-com type deal anyways. Been hearing some good reviews on this, so that's why it's 3.

2) Love Lab
I heard good things about this show, but I'm not that interested in it. I don't really like pure comedy/slice of life stuff, but it seems cute enough.

1) Henneko
Never heard of this one, so I can't really judge it, but I don't really like the art style.

chrome_mist, can I check something? I'm not sure if timezones are mixing up the timers; as of now it's 3:25PM EST and the #2 Battle timer is set to expire in 17 hours and 35 minutes, so 9AM tomorrow (Friday) morning, EST. Is that right?

I feel like yesterday's battle ended a lot earlier than the timer indicated it would for me, but I'm not certain.

Just checkin'!
