Top 15 Autumn 2011 Anime You Think Will Be Most Popular


Which anime of the autumn 2011 season will dominate is the subject of this ranking, and the results look sure to scandalise those who believe in the primacy of moe…

The ranking:

1. Lupin III

2. Hunter x Hunter

3. Gundam AGE

4. Bakuman (Season 2)

5. Chihayafuru

6. Kimi to Boku

7. Shinryaku!? Ika Musume

8. Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai

9. Mirai Nikki

10. Working!!

11. Shakugan no Shana III

12. Persona 4

13. Fate/zero

14. Tamayura

15. Maji de Watashi ni Koi Shinasai!!

Lupin fans are sure to be disappointed – the promised “TV series” was canned and turned into a single “TV special,” although fans are reportedly satisfied with the potentially controversial cast changes which were made to the title.

Those wondering why the list is not dominated by late-night anime obsessing over schoolgirl onsen visits need look no further than the sample surveyed – rather than devoted anime otaku, the ranking is based on the opinions of more mainstream anime fans, including normal people and females.

In fact 2ch has some difficulty acknowledging the results: “For a moetard like me, 1-6 aren’t even anime!”

    Well, the final quality of the shows will only emerge on the go. Luckily, Urobuchi has successfully killed most of the MOE this year, so I'll have more potential animes to follow on the go.

    Hate me all you want but... way to go! ^_^ Was getting tired of the same shit all over again.

    This list is actually encoded- to get the real list you're supposed to start at #13 and read in reverse.

    Persona 4 is lucky if it's even going to finish. According to twitters from the animation staff, more than half of the animators have quit due to not getting paid and being bullied by the animation director.

    Apparently, they'll be lucky if they'll even have anyone to draw episode 4. It's going to be like His and Her Circumstances all over again.

    Not everyone has played the game, you know.
    For some of us the story is new, even if we were aware of the game's existence.

    In addition Trinity Soul was a spin-off. Still set in the same universe, but to say that it was P3 would be a falsehood.

    But it's just the game again.
    There isn't anything new at all in it. It's like, the other extreme worst thing they could do with the franchise in anime format. First that Persona 3 anime horrorshow, and now Persona 4: The Slideshow. I guess it's still too early to write it off entirely for this, but damn.
    There's so much potential, there.

    @ 4:25

    That is incredibly unfortunate news... I sincerely hope that they have the wherewithal to break through the issues to give the series the attention it deserves. It is possible, especially if interest is generated and is high enough.

    No matter what though, I am really happy to hear the animators standing up for themselves like that. As much as it pains me to think an animation I truly want to see made is in such jeopardy because of it, the professional in me is rooting for them more than anything.

    Who the fuck cares about moe. We need more awesome and deep themes. Moe kills anime every single day.

    People fap to a bunch of boring flat characters.

    Judging purely by what will be popular, Fate/zero probably should be higher. Judging by quality, though, makes me skeptical of Fate/zero. If it's anything like Fate/stay night then it should stay where it is. Half the worth of any good story is characters, and whoever wrote Fate/stay night did a really poor job with characterization. The only thing that kept me watching the anime version was the plot, and even that wasn't spectacular.

    Fate/stay night anime(!) was a crap indeed(it's based on the weakest route in the game an, though the visual novel it's based on is quite much one of the best things I've ever read in my life and it introduced me into the . As for Fate/zero - it's entirely different project based on novel written by Urobuchi Gen (Madoka, Saya no Uta, Phantom) and animated by ufotable (go watch Kara no Kyoukai movies, QUALITY) which did incredible job in every production.

    It's like comparing blue sky and earth dirt in terms of animation quality and story ( Fate Stay Night : Fate Zero ).
    Different studios, different characters, and FSN is not the strongest story yet, hoping for Fate Heaven's Feel scenario to emerge :) ( with the same quality of Fate/Zero or even higher !! )

    Honestly I would pretty much flip that list upside down. I could care less about the top 6 so I agree with the quote

    13. Fate/zero

    SOMEONE have gotta tampered with some shit here.

    I for one, and many others like me, feel that once a story has been told, that there shouldn't be a continuation beyond the conclusion.

    I can't bear watching a story that has already reached it's climax in a prior series be reintroduced, revamped, retconned or simply persisted in a new season, which will have the same or similar conclusion as the the previous. It's a waste of time and an insult to viewers. Stop milking it.

    It is a different story altogether. It's not reintroduced, revamped, or retconned.

    The writer is different, the studio is different, the character is different. Try ep1. If you don't like it still then fair enough

    If by interesting you mean naked, tsundere, supernatural girl learns the wonders of japanese culture through a series of ecchi shenanigans while falling in love with a useless pervert...then interesting and cliched must mean the same thing to you.

    Actually you might want to watch episode 2.

    Things just took a Higurashi detour, with enough blood to sate even Alucard's thirst.

    i don't understand y ppl can't stand reused themes. i don't see a need to break a winning formula. i can enjoy the same things over and over np lol. anyway i think that stories are meant to be reused since theres only a limit of stories that can be told throughout human history. finite matter infinite time.

    Kyoukai has the disadvantage of an ultra-annoying male lead.

    I mean, he makes Naruto look like an intellectual and Tomoki Sakurai/Master Roshi like asexuals.

    And that's just based on his behaviour in two episodes.

    Maybe his LN form is better. No idea, but this version? Anime would be better off without him.

    Because it's surprisingly decent, as far as episode 1 goes. Stoop your blind hatred over kiddy-fied chara design.

    Also, Japan will eat Gundam no matter what.

    Dumb ass, it's at the bottom of the line of gundam. Decent but nothing stand out is already fail. What's it gonna tell people again ? Lesson from UC or Godlike Kira Yamato ? Or Celestia Being ? Unless gundam fans have nothing else to enjoy they will have to eat gundam Age ! Luckily, Gundam Unicorn is still around to kill the boredom.

    not everyone minds the same thing over and over. i'd say gundam fans will eat any sort of gundam even if its piloted by a kid that belongs in digimon.
