Let the madness begin!
Round one of our annual Anime March Madness opens today as a field of 32 series vie to be crowned as the best anime series. Each year, we bring back the shows that do the best from previous years and mix in a variety of new competitors to keep the tourney fresh—anime both from the recent past and more classic ones.
You can vote on the match-ups below, but we also encourage you to subscribe to our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts. The fun there is in participating in the communal aspect of the games, as our subscribers cheer for their favorites and express disdain for others. The social media aspect has also been a way that we can provide voting throughout the week, though we’re going to take that option to the blog as well. Instead of presenting all round one match-ups today, we’ll give you four to vote on each day this week through Thursday. Voting on the blog closes at 7:00 a.m. ET tomorrow.
Here’s the first set of games:
