Hataraku Maou-sama (The devil is a part-timer) doesn't have any films. Just the TV show (And the LN's that the TV show adapts, obviously)
Why is it on the poll?

I'm more surprised that the beach episode from bleach didn't make the list cause though it was a filler, it was funny as hell. especially when it came to soi fon's humiliation.

also they definitely should have that "kissing scene" for free cause its pretty obvious that the guys have no romantic interest in any of the girls.

I love the beach and hot springs episodes because of the fan service. They can serve as filler moments for shipper teases.

I used to have a review show where I'd review individual anime episodes, it mostly a positive show... it didn't last long due to the very first blipocalypse (only 12 episodes long).

But every time I see that episode of Sailor Moon I'm tempted to find a way to bring it back just so I would review that episode.

Because seriously... WHY THE HELL IS THERE A DINOSAUR IN SAILOR MOON?

Like I said said it was mostly a positive show as I hadn't gotten the chance to get to bad episode... So yeah...

Probably my favorite beach/pool episode is GunXSword, episode 17 "Follow the X Spot".

I saw that and thought: Wait, what? Is there such a thing?

OH I KNEW IT! Another's beach episode gets number 1! What's worth than watching your classmate spoiler[getting shredded into pieces by the boat motor?]

The poll question was easy. Garden of Sinners was the beginning of my downward spiral towards anime fandom; loved every moment of it.

The beach episode from Ai Yori Aoshi was a blast. Tina and Mayu were competing against one another to their ends throughout the entirety of that episode.

So did I. My best guess is that someone didn't notice the word "film" in the poll question and voted for "The Devil is a Part-Timer!" as a write-in option, which then got added to the list.

The Poll:

I hadn't watched a whole lot of film series (key word: series), and while I liked watching the Kara no Kyōkai movies, I felt that the Evangelion movies -- especially the Rebuild ones -- were more enjoyable.

In a related note, I'm waiting to see the Ajin movie trilogy.

My fav beach ep is Rahxephon's, because it does actually advance the plot; although they leave the beach and go to a lighthouse ( I think it was a lighthouse? ), I think it still counts.

I couldn't pick the Ghost in the Shell movies in the poll because the last two movies were so lackluster. Also, they really don't have anything to do with each other. So I went with the Patlabor movies; two out of three ain't bad. Tho' again, they're not really connected.

Are you implying there's beach episodes not worth watching? Kappa

As far as I am concerned if I like the characters enough to be watching the show then any beach episode, pool episode, bath episode, or hot springs episode is worth watching.

For the new poll I picked Case Closed.
I have seen only the first six movies but they were all very entertaining and a lot of fun. I hope that Funimation will someday decide to license more of the movies, and the TV show.

Case Closed should have more beach episodes. Wink
