Man, first I find out my Overwatch husbando is getting the crap nerfed out of him and now this travesty of kangaroo justice.

Wooh, a victory for Shirayuki is a victory for good clothing detail in anime. (I'm sure that's why everyone voted for it )

Well at least we know there is no true champion for 2015.

Can't be a true undisputed champion when you've actually already lost.

Seriously though, no more RotF please. It kinda screws with the flow of the tournament and gives unjust second winds to things that rightfully lost.


If you can't win against something that has "lost", then you probably don't deserve to win ^.^

Also, there's the concept of repechage, which is basically what RotF is.


Jist had that in some of the Olympics and The Little League World series is the same !

3. Kagewani (1)




Final Note(s)

And that's a wrap! This year's tourney was quite the roller coaster. Who would have predicted a show that made it out of the Revenge of the Fallen round would come back and win it all? This was the fourth year in a row that a Crunchyroll title faced off against a Funimation one. But for the first time ever, the Funimation title actually won! Congratulations to Snow White with the Red Hair for claiming the title Best of 2015! I want to take the time to thank my admins for helping me throughout the tourney - cay032692, bobland, and Swaggercandy. Special thanks to the Picasso of our generation, pongo903, for making a few glorious graphics for the tourney. I'd also like to thank everyone that participated and supported their favorite shows. I know there was a lot of heartbreak throughout the tourney but we all knew only one anime could win. And to those that stuck around even after their favorite show was eliminated, I thank you.

This was my 2nd year running this thing. Will I be back next year? We'll see. I just want to say that I did my best to try and please as many people as I could but you can't please everyone, ya know? I increased the numbers of entrants this year, which I still think was a good move. Next time that number may even be increased more. In the end, I hope you all enjoyed the tournament and make sure to look forward to the next tournament that pops up in the Anime forums! And lastly, if you don't like what you see...you can always run your own tournament. ShawnHacaga out!

Oh well I guess I can't win every year, but I guess this confirms my theory of winning one year then losing the next. I look forward to seeing a better series win next year

Lol. Some people need to chill. This was a tourney for fun, and this is what the majority voted for. It's really just in bad taste to shit on the result because it's not to your liking. Such is the nature of competition.

It seems Ren-chon is forever doomed to be second place.

So a FUNi show finally managed to win one of these, huh? And after coming back from ROTF, no less; I guess that means it deserved to win. Congrats to Akagami and its fans on a hard-fought and well-earned victory. I wish I could have participated in the final match, but Food Wars was my last horse in this thing, so with it gone, I really had nothing left to vote for.

Thanks and congrats to the admins for a doing a great job (when they weren't too busy playing Overwatch). These things aren't always easy to run, so you guys did good to keep up even in the face of declining participation.

If I can make a suggestion for next year (providing you guys do this again next year), it would be to expand on the "Show Spotlight." It seemed like each show could only have the spotlight once, and the subject of the spotlight changed irregularly. Maybe next year you could change the subject out more frequently and/or more regularly, possibly highlighting different voters' votes each time the show in question got the spotlight. I feel like that might give voters a greater sense of influence over the spotlight and maybe even the tournament as a whole, which could give some voters more incentive to write longer and/or more passionate votes for their favorite shows. Also, when it gets down to only a few shows competing each day, it might be interesting to give two competing shows the spotlight instead of just one, or maybe alternate which show gets the spotlight throughout a single voting period, though I imagine the latter might be more trouble than it's worth. But these are just some odd suggestions that I'm writing up at 1am, so it may be best not to consider them too seriously. No matter what you guys do (if you do it, of course), you've got plenty of time to decide, so don't let me try to rush you.

Again, congrats on a job well done and good luck if you decide to do this all again next year.

Well anyways congrats to Snore White with the Red Bore and even moreso to those of you who somehow managed not to fall asleep.

Early predictions for next year, Rakugo or Re:ZERO aren't winning.

I'm just saying, my AotY never wins this thing(2013 Arpeggio of Blue Steel went out early, 2014 Mushi-Shi made it to either the semifinals or quarterfinals, 2015 Gatchaman Crowds went out early). Rakugo and Re:ZERO are the current frontrunners for my AotY for 2016, soooooo if you are fans of those shows you better hope another show comes by and steals my AotY from them.

I can't believe that people would take this tournament this seriously, any more.


I'm assuming people like you would tell people to chill whether they were fine with Shirayuki and NNB being in the Finals or if it was JoJo vs. Food Wars.

Though I bet you're just telling others to chill because your show won.
