Anime Music Tourney Nominations Commence!

A week has passed and now that people have been able to comment or ask questions to clarify what’s permissible as far as nominations go, we’re ready to kick off the nominations process for the Anime Music of Openings & Endings Tourney.  so without further ado…

Nominations are closed.

Points to keep in mind while nominating:

  1. The minimum number of songs you can nominate is 5. The maximum number of songs you can nominate is 15.  Obviously, you cannot nominate a song more than once.
  2. When filling out the form, keep in mind that entries are to be entered in [Anime Title] – [Song title] (e.g. Baccano! – Gun’s & Roses).
  3. Note that ordering is important! That is because the location in which you place the song will affect how many points it will earn for seeding purposes.  So in this form, the song in your #1 slot will earn 35 points.  The song in your 15th slot will earn 5 points.
  4. You can nominate anime opening themes, ending themes, or insert songs from any anime (as defined by whether it can be found on AnimeNewsNetwork’s encyclopedia, MyAnimeList’s listings, AniDB, or Anime-Planet).  The songs need not have been written specifically for the anime in question (e.g. Eden of the East – Falling Down).  Furthermore, opening/ending/insert songs from international anime releases are OK too (e.g. One Piece – One Piece Rap).
  5. In terms of insert songs’ eligibility, all you need to do is ask yourself whether the song in question features a vocal component, be it J-pop, rap, Gregorian chant, screamo, etc.
  6. One entry per person.
  7. Nominations that do not adhere to these simple guidelines will simply not be counted.

Important dates:

July 1, 2013, 11:59pm (-0700 UTC) – Nominations phase will close and tallying process begins.
July 8, 2013 – Preliminary tie-breakers (if necessary). Begin distributing the tracklist.
July 15, 2013 – Brackets released. Tournament begins in earnest!

Again, if you have any further questions, feel free to ask.  If you’re looking for tournament updates or the status of how things are going, follow the Anime Music Tourney twitter account at @Animusictourney. There will be periodic updates here as well, if anything, to break the monotony until the end of the Nominations phase.

Nominations are closed.

  1. Well. We know who’s going to be in the top again.
    *cough* cruelangelthesis *cough*
    Besides that, I expect to see lots of Yuki Kajiura’s work being nominated. I mean, her songs make up at least 50% percent of all famous anison.

    • I wouldn’t count on that. Looking at some of these nominations, there’s a certain song that’s been mentioned quite a bit. Let’s just say that it carries quite a bit of soul amidst its beats 😉

      • I didn’t think about nominating that song about souls and whatever, but I did think about nominating something from that person’s library and did sort of do that. It is probably better to nominate a song about a bird’s poem if we want god-tier anison in the same line of thought.

    • That’s the idea. The reality is people will use those extraneous factors as part of their nomination/voting considerations and if that helps them enjoy a song more, then so be it. I’m not going to stop them from doing so.

  2. Might as well throw my nominations here in the vain hope that someone will remember something and include it. Or perhaps to leave my musical taste up for mockery. Who knows.

    After No. 1, the ordering was kind of whatever lol. I could probably switch ’em around in a bunch of different ways.

    har har I HAVE WITHIN TEMPTATION WHAT HAVE YOU GOT? Pretty English heavy, duh.
    Brothers for #1 solely for dem feels, I cried like a little bitch when I first heard it.

  11. Fun idea for a tourney. This was tough to decide! I ended up going with these songs:

    Angel Beats (OP) – My Soul, Your Beats
    From the New World (ED 1) – Wareta Ringo
    Nichijou (OP 2) – Hyadain no Joujou Yuujou

    Durarara (OP 1) – Uragiri no Yuuyake
    ef Tale of Memories (OP) – Euphoric Field
    Natsuyuki Rendezvous (ED) – Anata ni Deawanakereba

  12. Here’s my own:

    Madoka Magica – Connect
    Attack on Titan – Guren no Yumiya
    Valvrave the Liberator – Preserved Roses
    Senki Zesshou Symphogear – Synchrogazer

    Katanagatari – Hakushukassai Utaawase
    Medaka Box – Happy Crazy Box
    Oda Nobuna no Yabou – Link
    Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure – Roundabout

  13. Feel like the point distribution will warp the final outcome quite a bit if the amount of entries is low. Just having each entry equal to one vote (point) each would probably not have been too bad. Anyways, it will be fun to see what songs reach the top. My list:
    Minori Scramble! – Boku no Kimi e no Kakushikoto
    Umineko no Naku Koro ni – la divina tragedia ~Makyoku~
    Tamako Market – Neguse
    Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex – Inner Universe
    Toradora! – Pre-Parade
    Higurashi no Naku Koro ni – Higurashi no Naku Koro ni
    Nisemonogatari – Platinum Disco
    Bounen no Xamdou – Shut Up And Explode
    One Outs – Bury
    Kill me Baby – Futari no Kimochi no Honto no Himitsu
    Hokuto no Ken – Ai wo Torimodose
    Detroit Metal City – Fuckingham Palace
    Bokusatsu tenshi dokuro-chan – Bokusatsu Tenshi Dokuro-Chan
    Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt – Fly Away
    Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch – Flow

    • On the plus side, we’re hovering around 50 submitted nominations so far. That’s not bad considering that:
      1) We still have roughly 3 weeks to go.
      2) I have not submitted my own ballot yet.
      3) The rest of my staffers at Anime Instrumentality haven’t submitted theirs.

      I’ll still be running an awareness campaign in the meantime, including an announcement over at Anime Instrumentality to at least alert the readership there.

      There’s also a method to the madness in why the point distribution is the way it is, one that I’ll explain in a later post! 😀

  14. Just selecting 15 was fun enough (though I’ve spent way too much time on it already and will keep changing my list if I don’t submit it now), so I’m excited for the actual tourney! Good luck with the organization and thanks.

    My picks were:
    Densetsu no Yuusha no Densetsu – LAMENT ~Yagate Yorokobi o~

    Kamisama Dolls – Fukanzen Nenshou
    Kaminomi zo Shiru Sekai – Oratorio The World God Only Knows
    Ga-rei Zero – Paradise Lost
    Joshiraku – Nippon Egao Hyakkei
    … the pain of not having enough spots to even include a Mizuki Nana or angela song ;_;

  15. My picks:
    1. Cowboy Bebop – Tank!
    2. JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure – Roundabout
    3. Ergo Proxy – Paranoid Android

  16. oh poop, I forgot these

    Bokurano: Uninstall
    Trigun: Scattered Rain

    Black Lagoon: I Will Violate You No Matter Who You Are (okay, I know it’s called Red Fraction, but this name is waaaaaaaay cooler

    • Keep in mind that the entries that are to be entered has to be songs, i.e having a vocal component. Scattered Rain from Trigun would in your case not be eligible as an entry.

      Posting this just to enlighten that rule more since it can easily be missed.

    Inevitably, I forgot a favorite: “Poltergeist,” from Ghost Hound.

    Space Brothers – Subarashiki Sekai

    Aria the Natural – Natsumachi (ED1)
    Aria the Natural – Euphoria (OP)

    Mushishi – The Sore Feet Song (OP)
    Clannad – Over (Insert Song)

    Cowboy Bebop Film – Gotta Knock a Little Harder
    Yakushiji Ryoko no Kaiki Jikenbo – Theme Principal
    Cowboy Bebop – Adieu

    Tank! gets away with under 7 seconds of spoken vocal. Cheapass Kannofags.
