Every year, about a month before the fall season, I hold this poll in which you can force me to blog one of the upcoming autumn seasons. In this contest, you can either force me to blog an awesome-looking series, or a series that I normally would never consider covering. I’m a bit earlier than usual this year (blame impatience).

Either way, during the previous years I asked you to simply drop a comment with the series you voted for. Unfortunately, because last time people cheated I had to find a different way to do it. I didn’t want to post a simple poll (I really want this contest to be between my readers, instead of people who visit random sites and click on random polls), so I settled with an online survey, which can be found here:

http://www.kwiksurveys.com/online-survey.php?surveyID=KBDEML_aef4ec97

Here are some concrete rules:
– To make a valid vote, visit the above link and leave the titles of your selection. You can select up to two series from the upcoming Autumn season.
– The anime with the most amount of votes in the end will be blogged for at least 12 or 13 episodes.
Here and here are lists with the shows that are scheduled to air.
– This year I also decided to drop the “No direct sequels”-rule, so you can also nominate series as Index II and Sora no Otoshimono II.
– I haven’t tested this out yet, but at the online survey you should be able to modify your answer after having voted.
– I accept any series with an airdate between September 20th and November 11th.
– The poll will end at September 30, 23:59 GMT. All votes that arrive after that will be ignored.

You can find the results here:

    Watch Super Robot Wars and maybe you’ll grow some balls.

  3. Fai D Fluorite says:

    Bakuman and Psychic Detective Yakumo!!
    Even heard a lot about the World God only Kmows :)

  4. CherylHew says:

    …I’m tempted to make you suffer this season LOL!

    Kami Nomi zo Shiru Sekai and… and… *thinking of an obviously horrendous moe series*.. ah, I’ll settle for Sora no Otoshimono =D I await the results OHOHOHO!

  5. CherylHew says:

    ..Dang, my plan seems to be failing =(

  6. Suzuku says:

    Toaru Majutsu no Index II and Bakuman

    Wouldn’t mind Star Driver either :]

  7. Tan-Tan says:

    I hope you’re surely going to blog Letter Bee, because I didn’t vote for it.

  8. Solaris says:

    >This year I also decided to drop the “No direct sequels”-rule, so you can also nominate series as Index II and Sora no Otoshimono II
    BWAHAHAH You shouldn’t have done this. Now i’ll force you to blog… guess it :P

  9. Solaris says:

    Anyway, is it me or that survey page is horrible? >.

  10. senerikfred says:

    Can you link to the results page so we can watch the votes?

  11. Taxy says:

    Bakuman and Psychic Detective Yakumo.

    Even if I think you would blog them without anyone asking for. :)

  12. Acylia says:

    Bakuman! All the way. ;)

  13. mds says:

    let’s make psgels blog series that he wouldn’t blog from its first impressions (yes,it’s The World God Only Knows /Kami Nomi zo Shiru Sekai)

  14. AidanAK47 says:

    I vote for The World God Only Knows(Kami Nomi zo Shiru Sekai)

  15. Sapphire says:

    I haven’t voted for Star Driver because I strongly believe psgels will blog it voluntarily ^^

    GO Kuragehime!

  16. BlandUserGsEf says:

    Um, Psychic Detective Yakumo.

  17. Kalandra says:

    Psgels is likely to blog the Psychic Detective Yakumo anyway, unless it was badly made. Bakuman & The World Only God Knows on the other hand, is got ratedly lowly, though that might change once he saw the actual anime. Then again I don’t wanna risk it. So my vote goes to those two.

  18. Loz says:

    Im loling at whoever put giant killing.

  19. Kalandra says:

    Ok, cancel that opinion about him rating Bakuman low.

  20. AuroraFlame says:

    -_- People voting for Bakuman, Kami Nomi, and Yakumo when he’s already shown interest in them? I was going to troll with To Love-Ru but it might’ve ended up harder on me than you.

    PSGELS, watch Honey & Clover already! Don’t get disappointed by saving it for last and hyping it up too much.

  21. darkerthanblackswordsman says:

    Since I am all but certain that you will blog Psychic Detective Yakumo, Bakuman and Tegami Bachi regardless, I would vote for Iron Man and Rita et Machin. However, neither has a chance of winning, so I’ll just pass…

  22. Solaris says:

    Hey let’s just resume the “Force Psgels to review Railgun (or similar stuff)”!! Vote 4 Index II. Index 4 PRESIDEEENT!! :P

  23. Fireflyfu says:

    aww come on guys, he would have blogged psychic detective and bakuman anyway, tactical voting guys, tactical voting. shiru sekai, star driver and kuragehime have manglobe, bones and brainbase behind them so even if they sound daft there’s a good chance they’ll turn out good and be blogged. togainu looks gay i’ll pass. index II bored by exposition i want to be not. ore no imouto – vaat? aic comes up with an imouto story yet another waste of their ridiculuously amazing budget. why does aic have money but giant killing guys don’t urgh.

    amongst the second tier anime otome youkai zakuro sounds like it has potential but will probably bot be blogged, so i’d pick that. either that or we troll the poll with toloveru that’ll be fun.

  24. mds says:

    Meh…people (fangirls?) keep voting for Yakumo,even it is 80-90% will be blogged = =

  25. Meep says:

    Tegami Bachi Reverse

  26. Anca says:

    Voted for Togainu. Hey, psgels liked Uragiri and had a fairly positive rating of junjou Romantica, so IF it has gay themes, he won’t mind as long as the plot and the characters are ok :D

    And for Ironman because it lacks votes,

  27. Ransom says:

    Kami Nomi zo Shiru Sekai and Bakuman…

    Love both mangas. If I can make only a choice, then I go for Kaminomi :)

  28. Fireflyfu says:

    imma saving my vote for 30 Sept when people facepalm realising bakuman is going to be blogged anyway i’ll come in and save the day by voting the second on the list which will also be probably blogged anyway. to really put meaning to the ‘force me to blog’ phrase psgels should invert the list and then pick the first one…Fortune Arterial. eww.

  29. totoum says:

    i’m with Fireflyfu , the 2 animes that are ahead will be blogged anyway,I mean Psychic Detective Yakumo is done by BEE TRAIN,just as a quick reminder:
    psgels when the last bee trin anime came out : “Chance of me Blogging: 100% (BEE-TRAIN ROCKS)”
    or reviewing the before last anime bee train made : “This may be one of my more biased reviews, simply because I’m such a large Bee-Train fan.”

    I’m not criticizing psgels,not at all.I’m just saying psgels doesn’t need a bee train anime to come ahead in a poll to blog it.

    So my intent was on following solaris’ call,make him blog something he would never blog,except we need to get more organised,he voted index II and I voted sora no otoshimono II lol

  30. Solaris says:

    Nuu Totoum you’re EBIL: Sora no Otoshimono is actual torture! Al Quaeda is brainwashing their kamikaze bombers by forced view of Sora no Otoshimono (and kanokon)!!! Do you hate Psgels that much??? :P

    *jk*

  31. saffron says:

    Kuragehime, or Goulart Knights would be entertaining :D (Only count my 2nd as a vote if it actually counts for an option, otherwise, Kuragehime)

  32. Denizen says:

    Bakuman is popular. Seeing as how you haven’t read the manga, however, it should be interesting to hear your thoughts. You may want to wise up on Shounen Jump series, and how the magazine works, to understand some of it.

    I personally voted Kuragehime and Star Driver, since they’re lower down than i’d hoped. Seeing Ironman reviewed would be nice too, I expect it could be much like Ultraviolet.

  33. sheratan says:

    It seems that some anime are missing in the list above namely Baccano 2, Claymore and Birdy the Mighty.

    http://i192.photobucket.com/albums/z230/Bluesnow222/qyAh6.jpg

    Don’t know whether it is true but I will be very happy if there is some sort of “reboot” for the Claymore anime. They kinda mess up the first adaptation.

  34. psgels psgels says:

    Sheratan: that list is obviously fake. ;)

  35. inkka says:

    Whoa~ This season has many good anime to blog.For me I think the series that style surely suit you the most will be Yakumo, Bakuman and Kuragehime.
    One of those series that I interested the most is Bakuman.I read manga to the latest chapter and found it’s really good.But I want to know your opinion too.How the lot of text in the manga will be adapted.Interesting!

    ฺีBut Otome Youkai Zakuro need some love! See the vote make me…a bit sad.I found it has some of interesting setting at least.Want you to give it a chance as well!.

  36. senerikfred says:

    http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2010-08-27/yumeiro-patissiere-new-tv-series-to-start-in-october

    Of all places for an original story about a professional, working adult woman to come from. Starts October 3rd, too.

  37. psgels psgels says:

    She’s an adult now? That’s just… random but completely intriguing…

  38. tomtom says:

    Voted iron man and star driver purely based on premise.. they aren’t doing too well though :(

  39. Snowolf says:

    Though Bakuman is a wonderful manga, everybody’s going to blog that, so I thought I’d recommend something off the major hit list. How about doing Psychic Detective Yakumo (which I now see IS a major hit) and Letter Bee: Reverse (I know you want to :D)

  40. DestinyAlx says:

    well, I don’t use to make comments unless I have something to say but I selected Bakuman and The World God Only Knows.

  41. omo says:

    can’t modify my answer…put in 3 by mistake ooops.

    Don’t think any of them will win so no big deal.

  42. psgels psgels says:

    Hmm, so much for false advertisement. Next year I’ll try something different.

  43. Solaris says:

    Ok so, Bakuman? You were lucky this year too, but i’ll definitely force you blogging something wierd sooner or later!! I’m not an ENTJ Evil Overlord for sport!!! :P

    If you’re talking about Hieronymus Bosch then yes. I have seen two or three triptychs from him which are vividly detailed and thematic. I enjoy this medieval type of art.

    The German/Russian cartoons had no dialogue or description, but they were instead symbolic philosophical musings; like a painting of a man sitting on a tree and sawing off the very branch he is siting on.

    Yeah my friend has The Art Of Last Exile which is pretty cool, but I prefer the artist’s collections over those centered around a certain series.

Durarara!!X2 – 03

If its one thing you to can credit Narita for it that just when you think he cannot possibly make a stranger character, he then does. So the monster that Shizu smashed into the air in the last moment gets their story told and I am sure there are not many who would have guessed […]

Death Parade – 03

Well this isn’t quite what I expected. This episode was a much more lighthearted fare with it being about love. It was better than the last episode but still not to the level I expected from this series. The game this time barely factored into the story at all. The twist on it was that […]

Durarara!!X2 – 02

If this episode had a focus then the stars would be Celty and the Orihara sisters. Though there were other events such as Anri and Mikado going to karaoke with Erika and Walker but it wasn’t really all the important and seemed to be there to foreshadow a new character and set up what looks […]

Death Parade – 02

Well this isn’t the best start. I must admit to being disappointed in this weeks Death Parade. Mainly because it was essentially a recap of the first episode. This episode was from the perspective of two characters who were watching the events of the first episode. With a white haired ponytail girl introducing another to […]

Sorry for leaving these out but they are not really worthy of a full impression. So I am just tossing down my two cents here. Seiken Tsukai no World Break – Hoo boy…maybe I spoke too soon about Juuou Mujin no Fafnir being worse than Absolute Duo. Because beside this trash heap it’s at least […]

Durarara!!X2 Short Synopsis: People are strange, when you’re a stranger. It felt like a lot happened, but nothing really changed. That is the first season of Durarara summarized perfectly. The show itself even seems to revel in this. That said the main enjoyment of Durarara is seeing the cast of wacky characters interact with each […]

Nerawareta Gakuen Review – 84/100

Let me talk a bit about Ryousuke Nakamura. For a long time, this guy was my hero. He started off as an assistant director to Monster, in my opinion a big reason why that series got such a ridiculously solid adaptation, and then in 2008 he came with the groundbreaking Mouryou no Hako.

Kick Heart

Okay, so I didn’t want to exit 2013 without having seen Masaaki Yuasa’s Kick Heart. It’s only twelve minutes anyway, and I consider him to be one of the best anime directors out there. The story here is pretty silly and mostly serves as a backdrop, so I mostly want to talk about the nature […]

Everyone’s taste is different, and that’s a wonderful thing because that allows us to have so many different forms of media that all aim toward their own niche.

Silver Spoon Review – 86/100

When Noitamina started airing two series per season, it was amazing.

Unfortunately it’s a schedule that could not be kept up […]
