Anime ABC’s O Results

Can You Believe it? Another Tie!

We had a very good voting turnout this round with 24 unique voters. That is an excellent turnout! Still, we somehow managed to once again arrive at a tie. So I turned to the internet to help me make this very important decision between the top two contenders:  Ookami Kodomo no Ame to Yuki (Wolf Children – Film) and Ouran High School Host Club.

Now it’s time to….

SPIN! THAT! WHEEL!

The Results

Round and round it goes, where it stops nobody knows….

The anticipation is killing me!

Ok, the results are in, and as you can see, the winner is…

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!

Anime ABC’s M is for Mob Psycho 100

Always Strive to be a Better You

Image result for mob psycho 100After the great amount of success for ONE’s first webcomic to anime adaptation, One Punch Man, a lot of the anime community was clamoring for more. That show was fun, provided some commentary on the superhero genre, and was something a lot of people didn’t expect. Rather than be met with a second season like many had hoped, instead we were given another adaptation of a different ONE webcomic:  Mob Psycho 100. Did this follow up live up to the hype or should things have stopped while they were ahead? Let’s find out! Continue reading “Anime ABC’s M is for Mob Psycho 100”

Anime ABC’s M Results

An Unexpected Result!

From the beginning I thought for sure that the winner was either going to be Made in Abyss or March Comes in Like a Lion. To my surprise, and probably yours as well, neither took home first prize. We had a little less than usual for the turnout and those few missing votes probably made all the difference. Up until the very last minute we had a four-way tie between Made in Abyss, Mob Psycho 100, Mushishi, and The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya.

While I had expected two clear front-runners, you’ll see that only Made in Abyss even came close. Fan favorite Lion only had a total of 5 votes! Since I already let the cat out of the bag, we know that the winner can only be one of the other three. Let’s take a closer look at the candidates.

Mob Psycho 100 is a show I’ve seen before that was the follow up anime to the extremely popular One Punch Man. It has its own unique visual flavor with everything people had come to expect form a One adaptations. Certainly a solid choice out of our three contenders.

Mushishi is a show I have yet to watch. Heralded as a nice show to relax with among the ranks of Aria, this is one show that I just know I’ll enjoy. While I would take awhile to fully enjoy this series, thus making the final article take a bit longer, I know that the wait would be well deserved. Another great choice for our finalists.

Finally, a classic. Haruhi is just one of those shows that every anime fan makes their way around to eventually. Once a cutting-edge show that opened the floodgates for light novel adaptations in addition to the whacky follow-up series Lucky Star, this is one show that you can’t go wrong with. Of the three in this arbitrary suspense building summary, this is the one I am most knowledgeable about and would make for the most interesting article.

Enough With the Suspense!

Anime ABC’s – M Voting Round

Been Awhile, but It’s Back!

Here we are at the thirteenth Anime ABC’s voting round! There was a pretty big wait for me to release the last article in the series covering Little Witch but I just managed to squeeze it in before the end of the month. This time I shouldn’t take as long. Any way, time to get to voting for the next show starting with the letter “M.”

Anime ABC’s L is for Little Witch Academia

Believing in Yourself is Your Magic!

Little Witch Academia is an anime that came out of Studio Trigger after the release of two popular OVA’s. Announced during the airing of Space Patrol Luluco (I recommend that by the way) back in Spring 2016, I was pretty excited for a full series. The OVA’s were very fun and the world of witches seemed inviting. Did the TV anime manage to woo me with its magic and positive messages or was it a disappointment? Read on to find out! Continue reading “Anime ABC’s L is for Little Witch Academia”

Anime ABC’s L Results

Hello Everybody!

I’m excited to say that we once again had a wonderful turnout for this voting round, matching the previous record of 29 responses. To my surprise, the “other” category was a real contender this go around but it ultimately didn’t win out. There was just too much back and forth between Little Witch Academia (TV) and Chunibyo. However, there can only be one winner and when the dust finally settled Little Witch took the day with 11 votes!

While I certainly didn’t expect this title to win, I really thought Chunibyo or Log Horizon would ultimately win, I’m very pleased with the results. I haven’t seen Little Witch yet but I liked the OVA’s well enough to want to get around to it eventually. So thanks for the opportunity everybody!

There will be a little bit of a delay getting this review out, but don’t worry it won’t be a terribly long wait. That being said, it won’t be done before the start of the new year. This is due to Christmas and my current work schedule. Furthermore, a friend of mine who moved out to California (and is an avid Patreon supporter of mine) is home for a visit these next few weeks and I’ll be hanging out with him some. The important part, is that he requested (if this title won out) to watch and participate in the reviewing process this time around. Hopefully the delay will be worth it.

As always, here is a breakdown of the votes (Other was really interesting):
