Group G
[6] Non Non Biyori Repeat - This series introduced me to the beauty of slice of life. Prior, I was baffled as to why anyone would want to watch something so normal. Last summer was a significant transition period for me. After graduating college, I entered the workforce. While I was in school, there were many mundane days. In contrast, many work days were challenging and intense. Non Non Biyori Repeat was the perfect remedy for that. It was very relaxing and healing experience. Scenes can range from fishing to playing "Knock the Ruler" game to learning to ride a bike. Renge and the girls are hilarious and charismatic enough to entertain in those situations. Renge in particular has some of the most funniest scenes from 2015. The country setting definitely added to the experience.

[5] Saekano - Very enjoyable characters and some decent drama to mix it up.

[4] Noragami Aragoto - Saw the first season but haven't gotten around to the second. Will revisit in the future.
[3] My Love Story - Only saw and enjoyed the first 4 episodes. Might revisit it in the future.
[2] Beautiful Bones - Bored after 6 six episodes. Sakurako might be too brilliant for the situations encountered. There was hardly any tension through the scenes.
[1] My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU Too - Never seen.

Group H
[6] Gintama - Gintoki, Kagura and Shinpachi are harbringers of misfortune. Whenever those three are involved, you know that things never go as planned. Most times, things just turn into a big, hilarious mess. To be honest, I'm not caught up yet (49 episodes - going at 1 episode/day rate), but I'm having a blast. I've been told that its only going to get better.

[5] School-Live - Felt like it had potential, but by the 8th episode, I was too bored to continue.
[4] Tokyo Ghoul √A - Only saw the early episodes of the 1st seasonand enjoyed it. Might revisit it in the future.
[3] Himouto Umaru-chan - Never seen but have seen a lot of adorable Umaru cosplays.
[2] Blood Blockade Battlefront - Never seen.
[1] Is the Order a Rabbit? S2 - Never seen.

2015 Show Spotlight



My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU TOO!



Synopsis (Taken from MAL)

Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Comedy wa Machigatteiru. Zoku picks up immediately after the events of the first season, continuing the adventures of the Volunteer Service Club—the dispassionate Hachiman Hikigaya, the cheerful Yui Yuigahama, and the competitive Yukino Yukinoshita—as it dedicates itself to helping any student with issues that they may face.

With the rift among his own group widening, Hachiman begins to realize that his knack for quickly getting to the root of other people's troubles is a double-edged sword: sometimes the best solution is not necessarily the most appropriate one.

You can watch the entire season on Crunchyroll here




Voter Spotlight



"Iroha improves an already strong cast, Hachiman gets great character development, and this high school dramedy is top tier."

- biopower



What is this?

For this year's tourney I decided to add a 2015 Show Spotlight on the front page of the thread. Throughout the tourney I'll have different shows here that I think deserve a little more attention. I won't solely put shows I like on here, I'll also look through the thread and see what shows other people are talking about. Another thing, I will also put up spectacular votes about the certain show on this page so that everyone can see. If you put the time and effort into a vote, I think you deserve a little recognition.


Tourney Staff Thoughts on the Show

"It's no first season, that's for sure." - ShawnHacaga

"This show is f**king terrible. You suck Bio." - cay032692

"???" - Swaggercandy

"???" - bobland

Even though you wrote "Ballot_Bot wrote" it's not clear if you actually quoted her. Did you? If not your vote might be overlooked and not counted.

Also, although you can skip voting for an entire group, if you choose to rank any in a group, you have to rank them all.

Group G

Noragami Aragoto: 2 Not watched.
Beautiful Bones: 1 Ditto
Saekano:5 I love the show and how it breaks the 4th wall at times.
Non Non Biyori Repeat: 4 Who doesn't love Renge?
My Love Story: 3 As a larger than life person myself I could relate to the male MC. Besides who doesn't love Rinko Yamato?
My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU Too: 6 A great continuation of a great cast and more of my favorite character ever: Shizuka Hiratsuka!


Group H

School-Live: 5 What started out as a cute, optimistic view of high school gets real and grim, but still optimistic.
Himouto Umaru-chan: 4 Cute series, but I don't understand the hate of the female MC since we ALL wear different masks in the real world.
Blood Blockade Battlefront: 3 Meh, bah-humbug.
Is the Order a Rabbit? S2: 6 What can I say? CGDCT and playing rock-paper-scissors with a character in the ED theme.
Tokyo Ghoul √A: 2 Because somebody has to get 2 points.
Gintama: 1 Because the rules don't allow negative points.

Group H


School-Live(6) - One of the best overall anime of 2015.

Blood Blockade Battlefront (5) - Would have been 6 points had that long delay not hurt it so bad in my opinion. Still one of my personal favs of all time right now.

5 - Noragami Aragoto - 9.15/10 - This series is just so damn amazing. Unfortunately it was overshadowed by Owarimonogatari, but great nonetheless. Hiyori coming to save the day, while Yato was just about to lose it all. So so sweet. Noragami you will be missed. I wouldn't be surprised if we never got a season 3. Which is sad, because this show is so consistently good. The animation and soundtrack are S tier
2 - Sakurako-san no Ashimoto ni wa Shitai ga Umatteiru - 7.1/10 - Hit and miss episodes are to be expected given the shows "episodic" nature. On the whole they were pretty good, and some of them were even great (bow armed girl T.T). I think that the series may have benefited from doubling down on the episodic nature seeing as there was a lot of teasing toward an overarching plot that ultimately didn't exist, (see closing minutes) In ret6ospect it was all rather distracting.
6 - Saekano - 9.1/10 - Love love love the OST especially anything Michiru did. Every single cast member looked great. I love love loved the palette swaps, for literally no reason, it just went perfectly with the show meta commentary on just about everything. The cg was...bad, but all the characters have well developed back stories, quirks and habits. they are all either incredibly witty, self aware or apathetic in their dialogue.If you enjoy meta commentary and can look past (or embrace) the fanservice that is so imbued in the series, you will unearth a great cast of characters that undergo pretty great change before your eyes. If you have a foot/leg fetish, just stop what your doing and watch this show. Also if you enjoyed the occasional reference in DRRR, behold the reference treasure trove that is Saekano.
4 - Non Non Biyori Repeat - 7.9/10 - If you've seen the first season then you know exactly what to expect. In that regard the season is perfect in that it conveys all the sentiment from the first season with just more. And who wouldn't want more of these cute country girls doing nothing. Could definitely do with some more relaxing anime series in my life. That being said this is by no means a substantial series, but rather like drinking iced tea on a hot summer day.
1 - Ore Monogatari - Never seen.
3 - Oregairu Zoku - 7/10 - Drama with a side of cute, to be expected but the season more often than not left me feeling confused. Too many things were based of subtle plot movements that were only prominent in retrospect and the primary character drama between are main trio felt unexplored and yet at the same time a little over-exploited.

Group H



5 - Gakkou Gurashi - 7.0/10 - If you hadn't heard of this series this season, congratulations for living under a rock. Unfortunately, the very same tonal shift that initially made the series so appealing, ended up ruining it for me in the end. The series ultimately came off as a shallow ploy to convince people that moe could be edgy too without being mahou shoujou. Looking back I can't help but think the series was just trying too hard. Jumping at the edge of a cliff, threatening to fall off but never quite. It was entertaining enough to watch during the season, but I don't think I would recommend it, in the end it was just one giant tease.
4 - Himouto Umaru-chan - 6.6/10 - Not sure if this was supposed to be a comedy, but it was at the very least entertaining, The soundtrack was completely unremarkable, the animation was sufficient, the character designs were excessive and the art style was completely average. It began to drag at the end, as there was very little plot to sustain it beyond the comings and goings of a bratty sister. Perhaps the only thing about this series that makes it noteworthy was the development that the main character underwent. But I struggle to even call it development, as it seemed to me that she always cared for her brother and friends, we the audience were just got unfamiliar with that side of her at first. In a way the audience developed from a person who only saw her as trash to someone able to pick out the redeeming qualities that were already there. Either way, moral of the story, you can enjoy anime and video games while also being a normal person, who'd've thunk it.
6 - Kekkai Sensen - 10/10 - While I may have been exaggerating about writing 10k+ words for a show in one of these earlier votes, I did actually write 6,901 words on this series just on my blog alone. Suffice it to say, this series is the reason I started writing about anime, and I have yet to find a series since that has motivated me to write in-depth episode analysis since. I regard it not only as one of the greatest shows of 2015, but for me personally it will forever be one of the greatest shows of all time. If you find yourself with an extra 20 minutes or so, you can find my post on Kekkai here. There are no post for episodes 11 and 12 as I watched those long after the season ended. They were amazing to say the least.
3 - Gochiusa S2 - This has been in my Queue halfway through ep 4 for about a year. I will finish it one of these days...
2 - Tokyo Ghoul √A - 5.8/10 - I still not quite sure what the point of this season was, the story was paced way to unevenly, bolting through certain things lightning fast, but then wasting 2 whole episode (the last testament, and the finale). I would not recommend this anime to anyone. Hell I haven't even read the manga, planned to after the first season, but second season squashed any and all motivation to read it, but I would prob recommend to someone who might be interested to just watch the first 3 episodes of season 1, and then if they like go straight to the manga.
1 - Gintama - Never seen.

[6] My Love Story - Lots of fluff and diabetes. Managed to stay sweet and innocent for 2 cours while still being entertaining.

[5] Noragami Aragoto - First season was good, but this one was amazing. Compelling character arcs and thrilling plot

[4] Beautiful Bones - Didn't like it but I haven't seen the other 3 shows soooo...

[3] SNAFU

[2] Saekano

[1] Non Non Biyori


Group H

[6] Gintama - We got this series back for a full year and that alone makes me happy. Comedy was still on point but still delivered intense dramatic scenes starting from the shogun assassination arc.

[5] Blood Blockade Battlefront - Fun and goofy main cast and stylish presentation. The OST in particular is one of my favorites of 2015

[4] Tokyo Ghoul √A - It gets a lot of hate, presumingly because it deviates from the manga, but I think it was fine as a stand-alone.

[3] School-Live - Interesting premise. Not amazing, but still good.

[2] Himouto Umaru-Chan - Haven't seen. Looks funny, but kind of annoying

[1] Is the order a rabbit S2 - Haven't seen. Looks annoying and boring

Moe Trash Supremacy, Yo!

6 - Non Non Biyori Repeat - Top tier moe trash. It was a slow, but calming anime, that also had it's fair share of pretty funny moments. Seriously, while I wouldn't say it's in my top ten anime, it's still certainly up there.
5 - Saekano - Utaha makes everything top tier. Seriously though, this anime had such entertaining characters that I feel as if the story could have been garbage and the characters could still carry the entire anime.
4 - My Love Story - This was a really great and heartwarming romance, but it still didn't really stand out for me, for some reason.
3 - My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU Too - I didn't hate this show. In fact, I kind of liked it, but I feel as if it ruined the first season, with how it handled the characters nearer to the end, and for that reason, the second season leaves a bad taste in my mouth, despite really not being bad.
2 - Beautiful Bones - If it wasn't for the painfully annoying main character, I would have liked this a lot more than I did. Unfortunately, because of the main character, regardless of how great Sakurako was, or the mystery element of it, I couldn't like this as much as I feel that I should have, if he were out of the picture.
1 - Noragami Aragoto - I haven't watched it.

Group H


6 - Is the Order a Rabbit? S2 - More top tier moe trash, and like Non Non Biyori, the second season is also among my top anime, but not quite there. People may say that moe or fanservice is killing anime, but the way I see it, if a slice of life show can be so cute and heartwarming so that you're perpetually smiling as you watch it, I'd say it's doing something right.
5 - School-Live - I liked this. I thought interesting mixing a moe style of anime with an intense and serious situation, but while it was a nice change of pace, I didn't think of it as a masterpiece, as many others seem to. It was pretty good. It was pretty cute, as well as intense, with a pretty good story to follow, but it was just that... Pretty good.
4 - Himouto Umaru-chan - Fortunately, the scum of the Earth that is Umaru didn't completely ruin this anime for me. I would have liked if she had some real development and learned that she should stop being an exploitative bitch, but the rest of the characters offered some great interactions and comedy that helped me to ignore the Satan spawn that is Umaru. It was a pretty good SoL comedy, despite her.
3 - Gintama - I haven't watched it, but heard it's pretty good.
2 - Tokyo Ghoul √A - I've heard mixed things about it, but still have some interest in it.
1 - Blood Blockade Battlefront - I didn't watch it. I have no interest to watch it.
