    [​IMG]

    Ladies and Gentleman, dear Otakus,
    welcome to MangaHelpers' fourth season of the Anime League!
    About
    • This league has one purpose and one alone. To crown the best Anime of the season.
    Rules
    • Every user gets to nominate his top 3 episodes of the week in THIS thread.
    • Nominating day is on sunday. It is possible to nominate BEFORE that day, but NOT after it. (We do allow late nominations on Monday on certain occasions)
    • A week goes from Sunday to Saturday. The Nomination day for that whole week is the day AFTER that Saturday. For example: This week goes from Oct 1st to Oct 7th, 23:59 CET. Voting day for this week would be the 8th till 23:59 CET.
    • The nominations get counted. The Anime with the most votes in total wins the league.
    • There won't be a restriction for Anime which have no threads here
    • Only TV shows count (no OVA, no movies, no ONA, no TV specials)

    My first week of nominations are...

    - Mahoutsukai no Yome (If this episode is any indication this is anime is going to be incredibly good)
    - Gintama (The recap full of lies was so good)
    - Fate/Apocrypha (Moedred, champion of justice, saves everybody. Except that crazy chick she decapitated.:XD)

    Houseki no Kuni EP 1
    That was rather interesting to watch and I found it surprisingly good too.

    The animation is a very different style to me but I liked it.

    Tough job that doctor has, she has to constantly keep putting these gem girls back together, looks like a lot of fighting to continue in the next episode.


    Juuni Taisen EP 1
    Rather interesting anime so far, kill everyone and gather the jewels or die yourself.

    The way this Boar girl manipulated her sister like that was something else.

    She's not off to a good start thought, we have to wait until next episode to see if and how she can get herself out of this predicament.


    Blend S EP 1
    This was pretty good to watch.

    Very interesting way to run a cafe, it wouldn't surprise me if some restaurants or cafes in Japan had their staff play characters/gimmicks like in this.

    Pretty funny with that cat, she has the ability to do it but not the personality.

    Looking forward to watching the next episode.


    Honorable Mentions

    Sengoku Night Blood EP 1
    I too would be very surprised and confused it I suddenly got teleported to a world like that.

    It's a trap! Hanbee Takenaka

    Luckily for her it seems they don't have to suck her dry to get that power up.

    Rather interesting anime, I will continue to watch to see what happens next.


    Shoujo Shuumatsu Ryokou EP 1
    This was pretty good.

    Very tough environment for those kids, you have to be really strong to try and survive in a world like that.

    If I was Chito I probably would have grabbed that gun and killed Yuuri, how in the world can you trust someone after they put a gun to your face and take the food like that.


    Cardfight Vanguard G: Z EP 1
    Alright time to watch the new arc for Vanguard, I hope Aichi gets a big role.

    Ah so that guy is Gastille, and he literally started this show off with a bang.

    I didn't think Chrono would beat Noa/Chaos Breaker Dragon, that should be Kai as he is the one with the history for that unit.

    Mahoutsukai no Yome EP 1

    Shoukoku no Altair EP 13

    Konohana Kitan EP 1

    Black Clover EP 1

    For this first week, I'll choose these ones:

    UQ Holder! Mahou Sensei Negima! 2
    Shoujo Shuumatsu Ryokou
    Juuni Taisen

    I might be changing my third option though...

    <_> Damn, it's so hard this week! The DBS episodes were too good. I have to use two slots for them so:

    Dragon Ball Super 109.
    Dragon Ball Super 110.

    The third choice isn't easier. Gintama was pretty good but this week's Altair was stellar. Garo's premiere was amazing as well. I loved Kekkai Sensen too... :darn

    I will watch Houseki no Kuni, Hoozuki and Two Car before choosing the last one.

    As a manga fan I liked the first episode of UQH, it was solid but not comparable to Gintama, Altair, Garo and Kekkai Sensen. Same for Mahoutsukai(although I am not a manga reader) and Kino.

    (surprisingly good, but story's written by Nishio Isshin just have this certain charm)

    Third pick is quite hard... but I think I will go with Kekkai Sensen & Beyond. I really missed all this craziness :zomg

    Mahoutsukai no Yome:
    The episode spoke for itself. Anime of the season. Listen to me plebs, Chise will become one of the most adorable characters in your lists. And read the manga series, I tell you: it's awesome! :zomg

    Kekkai Sensen:
    I just love the interactions between the characters, especially Leo x Zapp. Leo in general is a hilarious MC. This was an entertaining start! Sick animation and music on spot! Please, give me more of Chain!
    X-STATION! DOUBLE-X! DOUBLE-X! DOUBLE-X! :lmao

    Juuni Taisen:
    Nice flow, good animation, cool music and that end. This looks promising! :zomg

    Fate/Apocrypha:
    It was an okay episode, there was not much going on except for Astolfo’s charm. Kudos to Moedred for getting rid of Astolfo’s Master! :hip

    Just Because:
    This series appears to be similar to Tsuki ga Kirei as in there is nothing exceptional about it, but still good and uncomplicated enough to be the "chill" series of the season. Already like Komiya! :blush

    Shoujo Shuumatsu Ryokou:
    It was cute and funny, but very uneventful even for a first episode. I will give it one or two episodes, because I see some potential there.

    Houseki no Kuni:
    I don’t like this CGI stuff at all. Aside from Phos, who is a very likable character, not much piqued my interest. Dropped.

    Ugh it is a Netflix Anime. That was quite troublesome last season. I will count it as a Sunday show so it is eligible for this week, not the last. Like this there is enough time for subs to appear.

    You also don't have to watch the Mahouyome OVAs. The Anime starts from the very beginning.
