Welcome to the Elite 8! Today kicks off the quarterfinals round of our AniMarch Madness tournament for 2022, in which you vote to determine the outcomes of each match, round by round, until only the champion remains!
Last week, we cut sixteen anime to eight, with a number of down-to-the-wire matches. Upsets includes My Hero Academia getting smashed by Naruto Shippuden, and Fullmetal Alchemist, which has lost only once ever in this tournament, bowing out for the first time before the finals, losing by just seven votes to Violet Evergarden.
Keep the voting coming as we close in on the finals. There will be two matches today and two more on Wednesday as we get to the final four.
Here’s how our bracket looks after three rounds:
