Guys, Another Tie?
I think we need to have an intervention. We had a great number of votes, just shy of the all-time record of 27 unique votes at 22 votes, but still we ended up with a tie. I’m going to have to come in again and arbitrarily decide what show is the winner. I would just use gladiatorial combat like last time but my lawyers have since advised against that after all the medical expenses I had to foot (not to mention the restraining order).
The two anime that managed to get the most votes, 9 in total each, were I Can’t Understand What My Husband Is Saying/Danna ga Nani wo Itteiru ka Wakaranai Ken and Irresponsible Captain Tylor, The. So which show will win? First let me set the mood correctly with this video:
I’m kidding of course, finding out the answer is always really exciting. You would understand why this was anti-climatic if you knew my dirty secret. I actually messed up when I created this voting round. I know what you all are thinking, “Impossible! You would NEVER do that. Simply unthinkable!” and to that I would agree 100%. However, this one time I did manage to screw up a bit.
Normally, when I set this up I pick all the shows that I have on my watch list, own, or think would be interesting to review here. Obviously, I can’t always include every title (because that is just too many options) sometimes a show is out of print or is so obscure literally nobody would care about it. It’s strictly for practical reasons and a bit of the behind-the-scenes magic. However, this time I included Irresponsible Captain Tylor, The which is a show I absolutely want to watch. What I didn’t realize, is that I can’t stream the show like I thought I could.
There is, what seems to be, a spin-off series on Crunchyroll but that’s it. I really should have checked to be sure. Still, this wouldn’t even be an issue since I could purchase the series from Rightstuf. Here’s the rub though, I don’t have a job and I make basically no money. So from the start, I was going to have to disqualify this show if it ended up winning.
Fortunately, there really wasn’t a negative consequence this time but I do want to issue a formal apology about that because this is a community event. Without you having taken the time to vote, this series would not exist. Your opinion matters to me and I really do want to go with the option that most people voted for. I will do my best to ensure that this does not ever happen again in a future round.
That’s why the winner is I Can’t Understand What My Husband Is Saying/Danna ga Nani wo Itteiru ka Wakaranai Ken. Since this is pretty short I should be able to watch and review this pretty quickly so expect to see the review hit sooner rather than later. I’ve got a little something special planned for October so this will NOT release on a MWF, but instead on a Thursday at the usual time.
Ok, real talk for a minute. You remember when I talked about my basically no money? Yeah, me neither because honestly who read all that garbage any way, I mean you just want to know who won right? Well if you were a weirdo who did bother reading this whole thing please consider supporting me on Patreon. Every dollar helps a lot and it does add up. I’ve noticed people looking, but not many people are willing to take the dive. Not only do you get to feel good for helping, but there are some benefits that you get too.
I’ll be releasing a special Patron only post on 10/7/17 at the usual time that will never be made publicly available to non-patrons. It’s an article series that explores my unfinished drafts. It’s a lot more interesting than you might think since I talk about why I started writing each piece, the reason I stopped, and you get to read the whole draft out unedited. The first one is about Black Mirror and was a post that, at one point, was over 10,000 words. I ended up cutting it down before scrapping it but the point is that these aren’t just some lazy posts.
Additionally, each reward tier offers its own little bonus. If you’d like to help me out or just get more information in general please click the button below. Seriously, I really appreciate it and hopefully you took the time to read this and check it out despite my silly jabs earlier.
As always, here are the results in full detail for your viewing pleasure:
