Anime ABC I Voting Round [Link] <- Click Me!
Voting will be open from today until 8/29/17 at 11:59PM PST.
Again, thanks so much for your contributions on this series. I couldn’t do this one without all of you! I hope we can continue to grow the series and our community with each new round as well. As always, thanks for voting!
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 “I” round is the ninth 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, Erased, Flowers of Evil, Gunslinger Girl (S1-2 + OVA’s), or Hai to Gensou no Grimgar by clicking either of their respective titles for examples of what the end result looks like.
The Devil is a Part-Timer
Flowers of Evil
Hai to Gensou no Grimgar
You Decide What’s Next!
So what are you waiting for? Vote now and be sure to come back next week to see which show ended up winning this round.

At least that’s what I would have said before giving it another shot. I really hated this show the first time around but this seems to be a community favorite so maybe I was just missing something. I decided to give it a second chance. So did my opinion improve or did this anime manage to win me over? Let’s dive into my look at the eighth community pick for the ABC review series, Hai to Gensou no Grimgar. Continue reading “Anime ABC’s – H is for Hai to Gensou no Grimgar”
Drum Roll Please… A Tie!
The two contenders coming in with 5 votes a piece are Gunslinger Girl and Grimgar. Having a total of 13 voters this go around, the results were pretty varied. However, these two managed to be the front runners for the entire voting period! Each one would attempt to overtake the other, but in the end it all comes down to me. The deciding vote, for all the marbles, and the winner is?
For those wondering, this title wins out since Grimgar’s Japanese title starts with an “h” and will have a second shot in the next round. Plus, I was secretly hoping Gunslinger Girl would win :p
Any way, great job guys! We managed to bring the vote up to 13 from last time’s 9. I’d obviously love to have even more people vote, but I’m glad that 13 people took the time to vote this time. Let’s aim to do even better in future rounds! Thanks again for voting 🙂
I’ve got things in the works outside of this so expect to see some content from me very soon. You all would have seen something a bit sooner but WordPress and my internet haven’t exactly been playing along T.T One article should be coming fairly soon after this one and of course we’ll have whatever Jacob cooks up. Past that, I aim to have Gunslinger Girl watched and reviewed by the end of the month. In addition to this, I’m reading a book for another article that is in the works and hope that you’ll enjoy it once its ready!
While you wait consider checking out my previous ABC article on Flowers of Evil. A lot of effort went into that review and I tried something a bit different by focusing specifically on how its story is told through music. I’d love to hear what you all think, so stop by if you have the chance.
Of course, feel free to view the results of this voting round in full below.
