With 2017, we have now reached 20 years of Toonami!! To celebrate, we're going to have: Toonzone's "Battle of the Brackets" Tournament (2017 edition!): Battle of the Toonami shows!! Welcome to the 4th Annual Toonzone "Battle of the Brackets" event! Done in the style of the NCAA basketball tournament, this event will pit 64 classic Toonami shows against each other in a battle to the death! (or something like that). For the 1st year's main tournament thread, click here. (Theme: American Action Cartoons) For the 1st year's tournament results, click here. For the 2nd year's tournament thread, click here. (Theme: Animated Action Movies) For the 2nd year's tournament results, click here. For last year's tournament thread, click here. (Theme: Adult Swim 15th Year Anniversary) For last year's tournament results, click here. How it works: The tournament is broken up into 2 conferences, which I will call "The Dragon Conference" and "The Giant Robot Conference". There will be two threads a day, with battles (aka voting) lasting for 24 hours, one thread for the Dragon conference, and one for the Giant Robot conference. I will update the threads each night, listing that day's contenders. Voting is done by posting in the thread which of the two shows you support. Just one vote per forum member please, per day. For current tournament standings, click here. "So what's eligible to appear in the tournament, and what's not?" 1. The focus is primarily on shows that aired from the original Toonami run from 1997 to 2008. Many of the shows from the 2012 (to present) rebirth were featured in last year's "Adult Swim 15 year anniversary" tournament, and so most of those won't be included, though there will be a select number of shows from the last 3 or 4 years that will be included here. But no shows that started within the last 12 months or less (Sorry, no "Dragon Ball Super" or "JoJo's Bizarre Adventure", as it's too soon to form an opinion on them, as far as how they compare to other shows in the history of Toonami). 2. No shows that aired online only, on "Toonami Reactor" or "Toonami Jetstream" (sorry, no "Starblazers" or "Record of the Lodoss War"). 3. Some of the more noteworthy franchises will be broken up, allowing for votes for the individual shows (Gundam, Dragon Ball, Naruto) but other shows will just represent their entire franchise (A vote for "Transformers: Armada" includes voting for "Transformers: Energon" and "Transformers: Cybertron", and "Zoids" is a vote for all Zoids series). But beyond that, is there a show you feel that was overlooked? Drop a line here, maybe that show will get in as a "Bonus" addition later on in the tournament! And now for the actual tournament (voting) threads: Round #1 of the Dragon Conference! Round #1 of the Giant Robot Conference!
