Anime March Madness!

OK, so I wondered what an Anime March Madness bracket might look like, so I came up with one. Seedings are based on my review scores, taking my 64 highest scoring reviews (though that only meant that 7 shows were left out…). The shows were sorted into 4 regions: The Romance region, the Comedy region, the Fantasy region, and the Drama region. Just as any bracket, shows may not fit perfectly in any given region, but I did my best. I probably should have done this after my Great Review Posting Blitz of 2008, but by then it wouldn’t have been as fun or interesting (if it is anyway).

And no, I’m not planning on playing this out unless a substantial* number of people wish me to.

* Substantial being enough people making putting up polls on the matter being worthwhile.

In any case, here is a link to the bracket, since it’s too honkin huge to actually put on the page itself. Those who have images turned off, don’t want to look at a big image, or who otherwise can’t read the image, I have the match-ups below the fold.
