Ladies and Gentleman, dear Otakus,
welcome to MangaHelpers' new 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 Monday. It is possible to nominate before that day, but not after the following Tuesday.
  • A week goes from Monday to Sunday. The Nomination day for that whole week is the day AFTER that Sunday. For example: This week goes from Jan 02nd to Jan 08th, 23:59 CET. Voting days for this week would be the 09th and the 10th, 23:59 CET.
  • Voting is possible till the weekly ranking has been posted.
  • 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)
  • Pre-airs aren't eligible.
  • 10 episodes in total are the bare minimum.
  • Shows with irregular airing will be dealt with accordingly.
  • The nominations for all shows will count as if they all had the same amount of episodes during this season. Shows with just 10, 11 or 12 episodes will get additional points based on the average they got so far to make it even.
  • A show which is longer than one cour is eligible for the season until this season ends or reaches 13 episodes. Whichever comes first.

Results
  • We will post an updated table each week to keep you updated about which Anime is leading so far.
  • Every user who voted for the winning Anime has the chance to win a badge at the end of the year. So keep on nominating!
  • A weekly ranking of the participating users will be shown as well!

Extra
  • You are free to add up to three honorable mentions with your weekly votes.
  • A Honorable Mentions table will be posted during week 6 or 7 and 13
  • Please highlight your honorable mentions clearly and differently from your weekly votes.

This thread is for nomination only!
Please discuss the Anime in their threads in the subforum.
If you have any questions regarding this event, please send us a PM or ask us here.

Please refer to this chart for shows which do air during this season.

Wohoo the year has begun!
Haven't seen everything yet but...

My first choices:

NieR Automata - Minus the CGI that was amazing so far.
Tokyo Revengers - The struggle begins anew!
Tomo-chan - First MC whose density surpasses a black hole.

HM:
Blue Lock - Number One sure went full Tsubasa.
Nagatoro - Those legs...
Otonari - Angel or mother?

I was unsure, thxs !

Tokyo revengers - the upcoming arc is very good, Hope the anime will be enjoyable


Tomo Chan - Cool and funny so far ! but I hope Tomo x Jun relationships will evolve asap.






Koori Zokusei - well not exactly fan of the yokai thing, but I like the girl so far.





I havent watched Trigun yet and next week there's Vinland and Hikari no ou, my most expected ones.

Otonari - Angel or mother?
I dont like the synopsis, the girl is volunteering for slave work :arf I m not saying its bad to cook for someone and to take care of people, on the contrary its very sweet and soothing and I encourage it, but offering that much to a random stranger... wow. isnt that a vision a little mysogynistic. I havent watched it so I may be totally wrong, but the way I read it, didnt please me .
--- Double Post Merged, ---

Trying to imagine me cooking and cleaning my neighbour place :arf




No way !

Stacked szn to start the year, potential to surpass last season. Though I didn't get to finish watching everything I wanted this week.

The Eminence in Shadow
Alexia is so cultured.

Tensei Oujo to Tensai Reijou
-Crashes party
-Claims newly eligible bachelorette
-Doesn't elaborate
-Elopes

Sasuga Anis-sama

Tokyo Revengers
Kazutora was a pain, but post prison, he's pretty good.

HM
Bungo Stray Dogs: Ranpo and Fukuzawa flashback starting good
The Angel Next Door: Feel like @Hermit will be all over this series.
Tomo chan: Gundo>>>>

Blue Lock was lukewarm to start new cour. Hope studio does better, great matches to come in this selection.

Too many returning shows this season :notlikethis

Danmachi
Oh yeah baby, the godlike sound effects are back,
Tokyo Revengers
It's all Mikey's fault,
The Eminence in Shadow
Atomic...

Honourable mentions
NieR: Automata (3rd pick)
Maou Gakuin
Boku no Hero Academia

*edit:
Eminence in Shadow has less than 10 episodes left and the opening hasn’t changed. Unless I’m mistaken, it’s not eligible for this season, so I’m changing my pick for NieR:Automata. If it’s eligible though, then I’ll keep it as it was.

Just need to watch Nier and Tenshi something before making my list.

The last episode of Gundam Suisei isn't eligible, right?
