    Justice League was beyond epic than its opponent.

    I think this is the hardest match-up for me so far, since I love both shows. But I think I'll side with Justice League this time. More so if we're counting Justice League Unlimited with it as well.

    If this were the Kenshin manga, I'd vote for it. It's the best thing of its sort I've consumed in the last 20 years. In animation, Justice League has the edge just a bit. Quality is consistently high and it pretty much encapsulates what's good about superheroes. At its best Kenshin is incredible, but there are also many just OK episodes.

    If my Kenshin praise sounds crazy, I assure you it's not. Kenshin is about serious things in a way other shonen comics are not, while Watsuki still manages to make it a fun read and checking off all the necessary boxes for a good action series. Historical fiction at its best.

    Bu yeah. The DCAU is almost too strong.

    I haven't watched Justice League, but I definitely need to, since a lot of people talk about it. That being said, my vote goes for Rurouni Kenshin. I haven't watched the whole series yet, but I do enjoy the fight scenes.

    If we're going comic to comic, the Kenshin manga would easily get my vote. One of the best experiences I've had with manga, by far. But since this is in terms of animation, I'm siding with Justice League which I've never considered a perfect show, but the Kenshin anime falters in comparison to either iMO.

    I'm going to vote for Justice League. It was a great show and I remember enjoying most of the series. I still think I prefer Justice League over Unlimited, mainly because the tone was a bit less dark/serious and I thought that having a smaller cast worked for the series' favor, but both are still really good with its action and storylines.

    I never saw Rurouni Kenshin either. I think I saw that promo before and a few clips from episodes, but I'm pretty sure I never saw a full episode. I might check it out one of these days since I have heard good things about it, but I'm going to stick with Justice League for this match up.

    Rurouni Kenshin is great, but Justice League/Unlimited is literally my favorite cartoon of all time.

    Man @wonderfly, another matchup that doesn't feel like a first round match! Elite Eight or Sweet Sixteen at least IMO.

    My vote goes to Justice League. I do enjoy Kenshin though.

    Well, it was a tough balance sometimes, between making the Round #1 matches too easy or too hard. Not every match up could be one sided. This is another one where I thought the anime would've prevailed over the DC Animated Universe, though Justice League is a top competitor...

    It started out a close match, but in the end, one contender pulled ahead...

    The Winner:


    Justice League!

    We will now take a one day break before the next match!

    I liked Jackie Chan Adventures, but I'm voting for Dragon Ball Z.
