After seeing all the tournament threads recently, I decided to make one myself. This one will be determining the fan-favourite shonen anime.

No Caption Provided

This is how the bracket looks like. I included the most notable shonen anime. I apologise if one of your favourite didn't make it. Edit: I will be replacing Katekyo Hitman Reborn with Fairy Tail

No Caption Provided

Rules

  • Anime versions only
  • Every 2 days I will tally up the votes and update the thread
  • Vote once per round
  • Vote for whichever you find more enjoyable or think is overall the better series
  • Not a rule, but let me know if you want me to tag you after every round

But Gintama is an underappreciated misunderstood gem of satirical genius!

*sigh*

My Hero gets my vote

Gintama. Arguably more of a parody of the shounen genre but no less fantastic for it.

@senate: Tag me in every round.

I really enjoyed Gintama and its satirical take on shonen. MHA is pretty good but I didn't find it to be anything incredible. Gintama.

I've never seen Gintama before.

And while I've watched MHA and enjoyed it, I wasn't blown away by it.

Staying out of this vote. :v

DBZ in a stomp. Bleach, while it has its strong points, has way too much filler and doesn't come close to something like the Cell or Frieza saga.

Bleach, as I grew up I learned I don’t really care for DBZ as a show. It’s not really that good.

Bleach stomps, DBZ only relies on its iconic moments and fights. Aside from that, it’s not really a good series lol.

@faradaysloth: It has great music, fights( its mostly fighting based anime), iconic and badass moments(Vegetas for example), good story( for what it is, i enjoyed all arcs while watching it, never felt bored, it does not try to be some complex thought-provoking anime, not evrey anime needs to be like that, this is mostly fighting/ adventure type anime, if i wanted some complex story i will go wach death note or Monster not these fighting kinds of animes anyway ), that is more than enough for it be great series, at least to a large number of people around the world that love it

So does Bleach.

I would argue music in DB is better and so are fights and iconic moments, which is why i prefer it

Exactly what I would say for Bleach

Cool

Everything you said was subjective though.

I mean obviously, there is no some kind of divine rule that states this show is better than this, it depends on you and what you like more

Shockingly, so does Bleach.

Bleach is still far less popular and loved than DB franchise around the world and i dont think its close eiather

Popularity isn't a factor on what makes a series better than another.

If we both have subjectivity, then why do you care?

Ok, let's rephrase: just because one series is popular, is not enough evidence to determine one's quality. All it determines is how many are looking at it.

Did I say those two were the only reasons people ever liked DBZ?

If I love a series, it's not because how many people read it.

No, but you said only a few positive aspects it has, i just wanted to list some more

Hoenstly you seem to have reading comprehension issues at this point, you are constantly saying and addressing thigns i never said, I dont love DB because its popular, i only said that people around the world generally love it for those reasons i mentioned( music, fights, story it has, iconic moments, good characters), nothing more, those reasons are why i love it not its popularity

You literally said in response to me criticizing the use of popularity as a factor of what makes a series good, with "I just said reasons (implying the popularity point) as to why people love it." If you don't see why I would assume you claim such, then sorry I guess.

You said popularity is not a factor and i agreed by saying "I never said otherwise" and i then said "I just said those reasons i mentioned" and when i siad that i meant and implied reasons that i claimed( hence why i said reasons i mentioned) makes it good and popular, obviously, its popularity was never among them so yes i really dont see it

You responded to me with reasons of why DBZ is a "good or great" series when I never said you must believe otherwise, in fact, you just provided reasons why anyone would counter the claim of when a random person finds your show to be of differing opinion. It's stupid, that's why I'm responding.

You said popularity is not a factor and i agreed by saying "I never said otherwise" and i then said "I just said those reasons i mentioned" and when i siad that i meant and implied reasons that i claimed( hence why i said reasons i mentioned) makes it good and popular, obviously, its popularity was never among them so yes i really dont see it

Then you poorly conveyed that.

I wouldn't bother unless if you're really into the fights. The series is horrendous outside of its action scenes.

I've always thought DB and Bleach appeal to those who want to see fights and out of nostalgia.
