In the midst of all the timers, I'll add some late votes. Though there aren't really any of my favorites in the battle.

4. Haganai Next - decent harem, fun characters, can get a little repetitive however

3. Golden Time - A story not about high schoolers for once. Decent drama, though I confess I haven't finished it.

2. Henneko - The characters and story didn't really appeal to me in this one. It was decent in patches.

1. Love Lab - I just didn't watch this one, so it got bumped to theend.

Can anyone check if the countdown timer is working? It should be 24 hours more or less. I think I've made the right adjustments this time.

Oh nice, two of my favorites from that list made it through. This next found is going to be an easy one for me though.

Noooooo!!!! We get all those harems/slice of life shows matching up in the first two battles and now the group of death. If only Beyond the Boudary was in one of the two first rounds. I don't see it coming out of this sadly.

4 - Attack on Titan: It has a extremely strong and captivating story and an aura of mystery that drives up the hype for a sequel.
3 - Kyokai no Kanata: Beautiful visuals, nice character designs, and a solid story makes this another nice KyoAni show.
2 - Mondaiji: A show with a silly concept turns out to have a good story and great entertainment value.
1 - Gatchaman Crowds: I have yet to watch this, so unfortunately, it is on the bottom by default.

Battle 3 wow tough one

4. Attack on Titan
Well there's not alot i can say about this that most don't already know. I really liked this anime. I can honestly say that the first half of it was easily one of the best anime's i'd seen in a long time. The second half had some really strong points as well, but lost some parts of the fear i felt during the first half (outside of the female titan stuff, that was pretty intense.) Needless to say there's a reason this anime is popular. It's because it is a good anime.

3. Kyoukai no Kanata (Beyond the Boundary)
Again a really strong anime that could have taken first spot for me if it wasnt against Snk. Great visual, great characters, overall great feel. It's a strong anime.

2. Problem Children
This show was also very good. I feel bad it has to be put under two other great shows, but it must be done. It was ultimately a really fun anime and i had a great time watching it. It's too bad it got glossed over so much due to the other big titles.

1. Gatchaman Crowds
I haven't seen this anime and i may watch it in the future, but from what i know and have heard about it i can't justify putting it ahead of any of these other ones.

4) Problem Children -- Diomedea is quickly becoming one of my favorite studios. It seems like nearly every one of their shows has characters and tropes that are so overused that you'd think they couldn't be interesting anymore. Yet, with almost all of their shows, I'm hyped to be watching it every single week. It's hard for me to think of a show that has done so much with what's basically just the basic shounen premise. Of course, it helps to have an excellent sense of humor and a badass of Izayoi's caliber. You'd think he's too OP to be interesting, but he's not.

3) Gatchaman Crowds -- This was a tough choice. I'm putting Crowds before Attack on Titan for a couple of reasons. First, I'll say that, through and through, Attack on Titan was a much more solid production. Crowds had some pacing issues, didn't explore a lot of its ideas as thoroughly as I'd have liked, and was kind of hit-or-miss for me. However, while I'd probably say that Attack on Titan had all around better writing, development, and overall "enjoyment," Crowds still has an upper hand here. Why? It was interesting. It made me pause to think about things, where Attack on Titan just gave me an emotional thrill ride (albeit a damn good one). While I found Crowds seriously lacking in a lot of areas, it succeeded in capturing my imagination for a time, and this is important. Plus, I'm pretty convinced Attack on Titan is advancing anyway, so I don't really feel bad about not giving it any more thought than that. Also,

2) Attack on TItan -- See above.

1) Kyoukai no Kanata -- I had really high hopes for this show, and there were definitely some worthwhile moments, but there's nothing in particular that stands out with this show other than the rather awesome ED. I was heavily disappointed with the show, but nonetheless, when I was on the fence about dropping it, I just remembered how awesome the ending theme was, and I kept watching it. I'm not sure whether I think it was worth my time, but the ED damn well helps to make up for it.

It would've been nice to see Henneko advance, but I'm honestly surprised it even made it out of the preliminaries, so I can't complain. Meanwhile, the big one rears its head. This should be an interesting battle for second place, but my rankings will be easy this time.

4 - Gatchaman Crowds (I loved the unique take on the Super Sentai concept, and the message this show delivered. It was great seeing the characters grow into something more like actual heroes, not just comic book "heroes." And, of course, there's Hajime.)

3 - Problem Children (I liked how the main characters weren't your typical "good guys" in that they would do what they wanted to do; in my mind, they only became more like "good guys" because their new home accepted them for who they were and didn't force arbitrary rules on them, so it was only natural that they wanted to protect that place. I also liked the gift game system, but I did feel some things needed to be expanded on.)

2 - Attack on Titan (I loved the post-apocalyptic vibes and I could feel the struggle for humanity's survival in the first third of the series. After that point, the series felt very inconsistent to me, and way too much like a typical war story/shounen battle anime for my tastes. I don't hate it, but it was a big disappointment for me.)

1 - Kyoukai no Kanata (I liked Mirai's character, and I felt that both Akihito and the story had their moments, but overall the series felt very off-and-on; some parts impressed me, some parts couldn't get me to care, and the ending kind of annoyed me, even though I usually like that kind of ending.)

4. Attack on Titan - one of my favorites from the Spring Season. I did have a little issue with the pacing and final episode but the overall presentation was fairly well done. Powerful production qualities, engaging story, interesting premise, and overall set up made this easily the best of the four for me.

3. Problem Children - one of the biggest surprises imo. The game setting and characters are just phenomenal. Shame this was only 10 episodes.. le sigh.

2. Gatchaman Crowds - I actually like this show, quite a bit besides the wacky finale. But against these two, I thought it was only slightly weaker, by probably a slight margin against Problem Children.

1. Kyoukai no Kanata - to put it simply for me, this show was very mediocre. I don't know what went wrong here tbh but it was one of the worst Kyoto Animation series I've watched. I remember actually falling asleep about half way into one of the episodes. The characters are blend and ridiculous. Biggest disappointment imo for last year since I had high expectations. Too bad.
