Once more, with feeling: Finding the Best Anime of 2012

Postby Maokun » Sat Aug 31, 2013 11:47 pm

Hello everyone, I've been away for a while so many of you surely haven't heard of me (hi to everyone who remembers me!) I'm the guy that made all the previous "Best Anime of year X" and now that most series initiated in 2012 have finished, we're overdue to find the best anime of that year!

How shall we do this? I comb myanimelist.com for all the series which were aired (mostly) during the year 2012 and all the anime films that premièred in that year and which have an average rating of at least 7.0. (I'm leaving out OVA's, special episodes, recap movies and the such of ongoing or past series.) From this initial pool of 106 titles, we'll choose 64 titles to advance to the preliminary round from which the 32 best titles enter the proper competition.

Ano Natsu de Matteru
Natsume Yuujincho Shi

Spring:
Kids on the Slope or Sakamichi no Apollon or whatever
Tsuritama
Hyouka
Fate/Zero

Summer:

Fall:
Zetsuen no Tempest
Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun

Library War
Nekomonogatari Kuro (which is not a movie but fits here best)

Finally, it begins. Actually, 2012 was a good year for anime; lots of great titles to choose from. Thanks as always for setting this up, Maokun. Looking forward to the results. :3

Anywho, voting and stuffs, in no particular order:

- Humanity has Declined
- Wolf Children
- Kokoro Connect
- Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou (Nichibros)
- Jojo's Bizarre Adventure (fun fact, on wiki, "List of Jojo's Bizarre Adventure Episodes" is also listed as an anime title)
- Tsuritama
- Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo
- Zetsuen no Tempest
- Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai!
- Medaka Box (Only the first season. If it came down to it, I'd refuse to support the second season because I'm still mad about the ending. XD; )
- Hyouka
- Natsume Yuujinchou Shi
- Inu x Boku SS
- Kimi to Boku 2
- Persona 4 The Animation (laughing about it, though)
- Sukitte Ii na yo
- Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun
- Magi: Labyrinth of Magic
- Nisemonogatari
- Nekomonogatari: Kuro
- Smile Precure!
- Joshiraku
- Wooser no Sono Higurashi (not on your list, but worth bringing up, even if it was just me and Blkmage who watched it)
- One Piece Film Z (also not on your list probably because it aired December 2012 and the subs were nowhere to be seen until July 2013. XD; But it was great, so it deserves a mention)

There was a lot of good stuff in 2012, wasn't there? XD;

Since I've only been watching anime for about 3 months I don't really have that many to vote for, but this is my list in order:

Hyouka
Sword Art Online

best ones:
Fate/Zero S2
Humanity Has Declined
JoJo's Bizarre Adventure
Jormungand
Natsume Yuujinchou Shi
Wolf Children

good ones:
Bodacious Space Pirates
Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou
Kokoro Connect
Nekomonogatari: Kuro (if only they included the Tsukihi banter, I would love this so much more)
Nisemonogatari
Psycho Pass
Sukitte Ii na yo
Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun

I'm not sure if Space Battleship Yamato 2199 would be eligible (series of 7 theatrical releases starting in 2012, finished in 2013) but that definitely deserves recognition as some of the best anime of the year. Also, the one I consider easily best of 2012 is Space Brothers but that's still ongoing.

Hold your horses, friends, the time for voting will be later, in neat separated groups.

@KazeShiki: I actually didn't know whether to include the Yamato movies, but now that you have suggested them, I'll add them in. EDIT: I'll probably add them as a single entry.

Looking over this list, I realise just how many anime there were coming out last year that I wanted to see, and just how few of them I actually watched. In fact, there was only one that I finished and enjoyed: Humanity Has Declined, which I'm happy to vote for.

*can't read directions, was too excited, and is sorry* 8(

Note to self: Don't do what Hat does.



I'm actually predicting that Hyouka is going to take this in the end, but hearing that more people have seen and enjoyed Humanity has Declined makes me very happy. (*w*)

All of this.

2012 is the year my anime drought broke so I'm pretty sentimental about it. ^__^

I thought it was pretty underrated but that doesn't seem to be the case here.

I didn't realize Teekyuu was actually 2012, so yes, it is the most underrated show of the year. MAL scores are indicative of nothing but popularity.

I'm entirely aware of this but I need to apply some kind of filter or we'd end with over 200 titles in this :) That's why I rely on you guys to fill me in! Teekyuu is in, then.

First round of the pre-qualifying days to go up in shortly!

Ok, time to get started! How are we going to do this? For this phase, I'm going to present you guys with 2 groups each day (out of 8) created with the titles above stated and the help of an online randomiser. For each group, give a star (★) to each title in the group that you believe deserves to continue to the next round. Please vote in this way for no less than 4 titles and no more than 8 titles per group. You can also give a double star (★★) to your favourite title of each group. The titles with more stars will advance to the next round. Without further ado, our competing titles for today:

GROUP RED
Dog Days'
Shirokuma Cafe
Accel World
Persona 4 The Animation
Girls und Panzer
Bakuman. 3
Kore wa Zombie Desu ka? of the Dead

Only show I care about in Red is Ano Natsu so everything else is voting for things I hope don't make it (well, Robotics;Notes was okay I guess). Green otoh breaks my heart but ultimately I had to choose Hyouka :<

@Crossfire: You can vote for series you have seen but that you know (or believe) are good. I'd prefer if you could vote for at least 4titles of each group.

@Hats: You can vote for up to 8 titles in each group :P No one needs to be left behind and if you want to make sure that some titles in RED will not pass, vote for all the others.

Gah, I haven't seen a lot out of these particular groups... :pikka:


GROUP RED - Only seen R;N out of this one, so the other three are just by if they seem slightly interesting to me/suppose I might eventually end up watching someday, I guess? (Though I actually have read {and really love} the Bakuman. manga, but I don't know how good or not the anime adaptation is, so I decided not to give that a star.)

Accel World ★
Persona 4 The Animation ★
Girls und Panzer ★
Robotics;Notes ★★


GROUP GREEN - Haven't seen Moyashimon, either; but, again, if I have to pick four... :sweat: Also, *really* hard to choose between Library War and Hyouka for the double-star! :pikka: However, since I have a sneaking suspicion that more people have seen (and thus will give more stars to) the latter, I'll give my second star to the former. :)

Library War: The Wings of Revolution ★★
Moyashimon Returns ★
Hyouka ★
Nekomonogatari: Kuro ★
Saved by grace.
