    for a moment, I was appreciating the fact that Zero no Tsukaima was so close to the bottom (felt bad about Another, though).... until I realized that there are usually more than 50 titles in a year, and some of the ones not present (and thus out-done by Zero) include Binbougami and Highschool DxD... fucking hell! DX

    What about K anime. That, Code:Breaker, Magi was good, and Zetsuen no Tempest all deserve to be higher (then again i haven't watched half the anime in the top 10 =P

    "Binbougami ga!" is the same as "Gintama". So it should be at the list.

    Other than the people that run this website, and a few vocal vans, I don't know of anyone that actually liked that show.

    Shame too. I wanted to like the show. It was just so...incredibly not funny.

    You need to get your eyes checked. There is Kise Yayoi, Nyarko, and some white haired girl I don't recognize.

    The white haired girl is Horizon Ariadust from Kyoukaisenjou no Horizon, which is also missing from the list.

    The whole site and its gimmick is just "What's your favorite xxxx" junk and generic ones like this in between "Favorite deformed character" random ones...

    It's no different then the forums here or the like so yeah, the results don't matter much..

    Well I agree with the top 1 but how in the world comes that SAO is higher than F/Z?

    Simple, because there are more people that likes SAO than Fate/Zero.

    first because of the demographic SAO is basically a shonen while F/Z is a seinen.

    Frankly, I'm still waiting till they do a huge crossover including (but not limited to) F/SN, Tsukihime,KNK. Until then, TM needs to step it up

    There's also a surprisingly large amount of people that didn't watch F/S Night or played the game too so the impact of F/Z was lessened.

    While the positions of certain anime series are highly controversial and disputable, as always, we aren't talking about the best anime of this year, but the most entertaining one. I don't know about you, but I think that Fate/zero is infinitely better than Sword Art Online in terms of most aspects; storytelling, dialogue and theming. But I can see why SAO is above F/z for one reason: atmosphere. Nothing gets my adrenaline pumping more than Kirito screaming like a madman while charging at the enemy and the main theme kicks in.

    I want to bury my head and weep every time Kirito goes apeshit, but yeah, to each their own. I can see SAO being more entertaining but not for the reasons you're mentioning -- it's one of those shows that just IS entertaining. It doesn't require a brain, and most otaku can relate because nearly all of them play or have played MMORPGs. It's a dream otaku scenario.

    I don't know about you, but when Kirito is charging at the enemy screaming like a madman, I burst out laughing. Every time. But then again, doesn't that mean the show is literally entertaining? I doubt that's how the authors meant it to happen, but that's the reality.

    Pretty much this. And the fuck Hyouka? Really? Really?! While I would agree that some parts of Hyouka were pretty entertaining a lot of it were incredibly boring and the mysteries were mostly trivial. <_<

    Animation and story from KyoAni is as good as it gets. Don't know why you people hate anything that has good character designs.

    Pretty sure the sheep thing to do would be to worship kyoani like every other sheep even though everything they have made since clannad has been utter trash.

    I don't worship KyoAni but I still enjoy watching Hyouka. In fact, Hyouka is the only anime that I've watch that's from KyoAni
