Anime ABC’s, “Q” Results

One Title, One Chance at Redemption!

We had a lower turnout than usual, but despite this, it was a very tight race. It turns out when you pit all the fan-favorite shows against each other, folks have a hard time deciding which one should win. With a total of 21 unique voters, one show received 9 votes among them. The winner was none other than Cowboy Bebop!

The plan is to rewatch the series and get an article out. After that, I’ll be watching the film and producing a follow-up article for that as well. This is going to take me awhile because I’m losing my Amazon Prime account, so that means I need to finish a few shows they have that are still exclusive before anything else. After that, this’ll have my full attention though.

If you would like something to enjoy in the intern, you can read my article on Psycho-pass from the last voting round. Alternatively, check out my giant alphabetized list of every anime I’ve reviewed/mentioned since the site’s creation. I’m sure you can find some great reading there.

As always, you can see the full results of the votes below. It was awful close so I’m sure you’ll be curious to see what titles almost won. Even my personal pick only managed second place (but what one could that be?).

Anime ABC’s – Q Voting Round?

Welcome to Redemption!

This is the 17th voting round of the Anime ABC’s series and normally we’d be choosing between titles that begin with the letter, “Q” but this round is going to work a little differently. You see, there are not very many anime that start with this letter, and the few that I could feasibly watch, I have absolutely zero interest in. So instead, this is a redemption round where second place losers from the rounds prior get the chance to have their day in the sun!

Voting will remain open from today until 1/16/18 at 11:59 PM PST per the norm.

There were a few options where I more than one title was a previous runner up and in those cases I made a call or chose the title that hadn’t already been reviewed (as was the case in some instances). Including this in case you go back through each round and see how each round shook out because it wouldn’t line up exactly otherwise.

Not Sure What Anime ABC’s Is?

Anime ABC’s is a fun community focused event that I run here at Jon Spencer Reviews. Any and all people can participate in this event, even if you know nothing about anime! So how exactly does this all work? It’s simple! Just follow the link above and vote for as many of the listed shows (or provide your own) that seem interesting to you. Each round moves to the next letter in the alphabet, so the current “P” round is the sixteenth anime ABC’s. This is done to keep things interesting and to allow for more variety with each passing round.

The goal of this series is to encourage community input, interaction, as well as to allow me to discover cool new shows, or in some cases, rediscover ones that I previously watched. You can check out my previous ABC reviews for:  Anohana, Bacanno!, Code Geass, The Devil is a Part-Timer, ErasedFlowers of Evil, Gunslinger Girl (S1-2 + OVA’s), Hai to Gensou no Grimgar, I Can’t Understand What My Husband is Saying, Joker GameKimi no Na waLittle Witch Academia, Mob Psycho 100, NHK ni Youkoso!, Ouran High School Host Clubor Psycho-Pass. by clicking either of their respective titles for examples of what the end result looks like.

Anime ABC’s P Results

All-Time High!

Congratulations everybody, we pulled together to achieve the greatest voting turnout so far with 31 unique voters! This is only 2 more than the previous record but I’m still really happy that we beat it all the same. So, what title won the coveted position of getting reviewed this time?

Having received 13 total votes is Psycho-Pass! This one is a popular show that I’ve considered covering a few times in the past so it is definitely long overdue. There is a lot of excellent content covering the series (especially here in the aniblogging sphere) as is so I’ll have to think hard about how I want to cover it for sure. I’m really excited to watch this one again and finally take a look at it!

In the meantime be sure to check out the previous ABC’s article where I review Ouran High School Host ClubI really struggled with that one and tried a lot of new stuff with that article with fairly mixed results. That’s alright though because, in case you haven’t noticed, the Anime ABC’s series is a place where I experiment and try something new every single time!

Need more content? Of course you can check out my alphabetized list of every anime I’ve ever reviewed or discussed here on the site. Other than that, I have all my other content available from the various menus located at the top of the page (including the stuff I linked here too). Consider staying awhile, catching up, and sharing your thoughts with me while you’re here.

Lastly, below is a complete breakdown of the total results from the voting. Notice that I included a new feature this time in the forms of links to each show’s synopsis. Only 2 people used ’em but a lot of folks want me to keep them. I think we’ll try this at least one more time but if folks don’t need them I’ll stop doing it because it is a tedious process for me.

Anime ABC’s – P Voting Round

It’s Been Awhile!

The last Anime ABC’s review for, Ouran High School Host Club sure took me a good bit to get done but I’m happy to get this series up and running again! This time we’ll be voting on an anime that begins with the letter, “P” which marks our sixteenth round. Can you believe it?

I added a new feature to the survey! You can now click the title of any show listed in the survey and it’ll take you to its respective MAL page. I also added to questions about this feature at the conclusion of the survey to see if we’ll keep it around for future voting periods. A heads up though, be sure to open the links in a new tab because otherwise it’ll take you out of the survey. You won’t be locked out of the survey but you will lose your progress.

Anime ABC’s O is for Ouran High School Host Club

Step Outside Your Comfort Zone

The original idea for this review was to discusses why you shouldn’t always judge a book, or in this case, anime by its cover and branch out into new territory if you are one of those folks who watches only one or two genres. Unfortunately, that version of the review came out poorly and fairly condescending so rather than make the entire review about that, it’ll just be a part of it with the main focuses being why Ouran High School Host Club is well worth your time.

Anime ABC’s – O voting Round

 

Time Once Again!

We are on our fifteenth round of Anime ABC’s if you can believe it! Last time I took a look at Welcome to the NHK! which really took me a lot of effort. The show is really depressing but opens opportunities to talk about difficult topics.

This time we are voting on what, “O” anime I’ll be watching. The survey is a tiny bit longer than usual because I have some bonus questions at the end. These extra questions will help me write a fun post about our community here so be sure to share the survey around!

Anime ABC’s N is for NHK ni Youkoso!

Welcome to the Depression

Image result for welcome to the nhkFor this entry in the Anime ABC’s series I’m taking a look at NHK ni Youkoso!, or Welcome to the NHK as it’s known in English. It’s a depressing story that has a positive spin in the end but man is it a long journey. This 2006 adaptation of the novel of the same title is one that offers a unique story that shouldn’t be missed by more serious anime viewers. For some, Welcome to the NHK is going to hit pretty close to home but for others it offers an interesting look into the world of hikikomoris and the dangers of social isolation taken to extremes.

Anime ABC’s N Results

 

One Tight Race

This round of Anime ABC’s had a lot of weirdness surrounding it. For starters, some long-time voters didn’t participate (I didn’t send it to them, what with everything going on and all) and the front runner changed almost every time somebody voted. In total we had 22 unique voters. At the end of the day though, only one title can reign supreme. Today, a champion emerges and that champion is…

Welcome to the NHK.

Having received a total of 8 votes this is our winner for the N round! Nichijou and No Game No Life were in second and third place respectively. Everything else was reasonably close behind.

I’ll be taking time to re-watch the series and have everything still going on (see this update if you don’t know already) so don’t expect this one to come very quickly. In the meantime I am going to try and schedule a few goodies for you all here-and-there between so I’m not totally dead during my absence. If you want to see me a bit more active, you can find me on Twitter @JS_Reviews.

Not enough for you? Will then be sure to check out the previous ABC article where I discuss Mob Psycho 100 and talk a bit about One Punch Man too. Of course, you can always see every review/discussion piece I ever did by clicking the header for the category on the main page or just clicking here for an alphabetized list.

As always, the full results of the vote are attached below. Did your pick win out or did end up falling short? Let me know your thoughts on this round of Anime ABC’s and the result. Until then, take it easy and I hope I can come back in full swing soon!
