Atarashii Prelude and Anime Diet advance to face each other in Round 3
~Round 2 completed~
A Neurotico-Analytical Blog (his words, not mine), Animekritik has an apparent unending fascination with Leiji Matsumoto. The only philosophical anime blog as far as I know, he’s only come back out of hiatus relatively recently and it’s a shame he wasn’t updating at the time we were picking blogs for this tourney.
The match between Bokutachi no Blog and The null set was closed prematurely due to vote count manipulation. The match ends in a draw.
In the event of a draw, both blogs advance to the next round to compete in a 3-way tie

AniPages Daily is probably the only blogger out there who can name animators and recognise their styles, going so far as to watch specific episodes of any anime because one of his favourites animated it.

Who’d have thought copypasting stuff from 2chan could be so interesting! I’ve got this post saved as reference, a highly interesting piece for a big nerd like myself who likes reading dvd sales figures.
Reverse Thieves and Hashihime advance to face each other in Round 3
When picking the blogs competing in this tourney, I missed out on quite a number of legitimate, quality candidates that only became apparent once the tourney had started. So while we’re waiting for the last of the match-ups from Round 2 to end, let’s highlight some of those blogs I missed out on.
Baffled by how I missed this one. Hey Say Anime is a large team blog, mainly focusing on episodic posts. When I say ‘large team’ I really do mean that. There’s currently 11 writers on their staff roll at the moment!
