    Welcome to...

    The Bonus Round Thread! (2017 edition)

    In addition to the 64 contenders in the regular tournament, we're going to add on 4 Bubble Contenders that have a chance to break into the main tournament!! In a nutshell, I felt there were a few extra shows that merited consideration for inclusion.

    Here's how it'll work:

    Monday: Bonus Match #1: Bubble Team #1 vs. Bubble Team #2
    Tuesday: Bonus Match #2: Bubble Team #3 vs. Bubble Team #4
    Wednesday: Winner of Match #1 vs. Winner of Match #2
    Thursday: Winner of Wednesday's match battles a team in the main tournament to take it's spot in the tournament.

    And now a reminder of the rules:

    Voting is simple: Just post which of the two contestants of the day you find to be more awesome! Please, no editing your posts, once your vote is cast, help simplify things for me and don't change it. So be sure you are certain which one you want to vote for when you post! Feel free to debate it amongst yourselves for a while before casting your votes, but remember: each match runs no more than 24 hours!

    Hunter X Hunter, no question. I'm enjoying Super so far, especially as someone who prefers the Dragon Ball franchise's sense of humor to its more action-packed moments. But there's no contest here.

    Hunter x Hunter gets my vote, simply based off how exemplary a long-running shonen it is.

    I like both shows pretty much equally, but I think I'll vote for Hunter X Hunter.

    I agree. I've noticed while watching through Kai that I prefer the DB franchise when it makes me laugh. I should really watch Dragon Ball sometime.

    I also agree on the vote. Hunter x Hunter for me. And if HxH wins through the bonus round it could probably knock out like half of the shows in the main tournament easily IMO.

    Hunter X Hunter I am a big fan of the DB series but Hunter manages to avoid a big problem that the former has and that is time wasting, which is handled much better.

    Futile o'er here as well. Something happened, boredom perhaps, that I lost focus of HxH around the 9th episode I think. Voting for something Super.

    Hunter X Hunter, although running on Toonami for nearly a year kind of gives it an edge.

    Probably does, but I thought Dragon Ball fans might support it just because it's Dragon Ball (plus, there is a segment of fans who have watched ahead with the subbed version of "Super")...

    Hunter x Hunter easily gets my vote. While it does have its fair share of problems, I think it's a pretty solid show. The action is good, the characters are likable, the setting is interesting and it does try some different things from the usual shonen series tropes. It's easily one of the best shows currently airing on Toonami and possible one of the best shows it has aired since its revival. It might be a bit early to claim the latter, but it's a pretty good and enjoyable series.

    Even though I don't comment in the talkback threads, I have been watching Dragon Ball Super and I do kind of like it. I've heard complaints about its first couple of arcs and I can definitely see the pacing issues. Part of that could be how I'm used to the pacing in Kai, but it also feels like they're stretching it out at points. The action has been pretty nice, there are some nice character moments and the more light hearted tone is kind of refreshing, but I don't think it's anything to write home about just yet. It probably also helps that I'm not much of a fan of the series. I watch Kai for the heck of it and I can see why it became so popular, but I see it as mainly being okay with good action and character moments here and there. The same will most likely apply for Super the more I see of it.

    I like Super....but frankly, it doesn't get really good until much later. Hunter x Hunter is one of the best Jump anime of all time, IMO. Gets my vote.

    Hunter x Hunter!

    Onward, to the next match!

    It's like everywhere I go in this tournament there's more Dragon Ball and Gundam.

    As for the match up, this is probably the easiest one yet for me. Kai has issues, but it is at least entertaining where JoJo is not, IMO. So, Dragon Ball Z Kai for me. Easily.

    Based on the people who usually vote in this thing, I'd guess JoJo will win. But, I think it'll lose to HxH.
