The summer season is here, and so arrives the final fan ranking of the most anticipated anime set to air in the coming weeks – which is unsurprisingly once again is dominated by continuations rather than original titles, though with one uncommonly controversial exception

The ranking:

1. Monogatari Series: Second Season

2. Rozen Maiden

3. Danganronpa – The Animation

4. Watamote!

5. Gin no Saji – Silver Spoon

6. Free!

7. The World God Only Knows III

8. Inu to Hasami wa Tsukaiyou

9. Ro-Kyu-Bu! SS

10. Senki Zesshou Symphogear G

    Why 'Second Season'? Bakemonogatari was the first and Nisemonogatari was the second, yes?

    *in any case, greatly hoping for Kabukimonogatari to be included!*

    In the chronological order it looks like:
    1. Kizumonogatari (to be animated as movie - who knows when...)
    2. Nekomonogatari Black (animated after Bake and Nise)
    3. Bakemonogatari (animated and written 1st but is acutualy 3rd in chronology)
    4. Nisemonogatari (animated 2nd - Finishes the "1st season part of novels)

    5. Nekomonogatari White (this will be first few episodes of new series)

    And so on. I'm too lazy to write all of them down here. This series will adapt 6 books (if i remember it right) that consist of 2nd season of Light Novel. There are total of 3 seasons.

    Because the novels included are called "Monogatari second season" as a whole. And yes, there's also a third season and Kizumonogatari from the first waiting to be adapted.

    First "Season" is Bakemonogatari+Kizumonogatari+Nisemonogatari+Nekomonogatari (Part 1)

    Second "Season" is Nekomonogatari (Part 2)+Kabukimonogatari+Hanamonogatari+Otorimonogatari+Onimonogatari+Koimonogatari

    Third "Season" is all the extra stuff after that iirc.

    No. You are wrong about the third season.
    Third season is the last season that will conclude the Monogatari series.
    It includes:
    1. Tsukimonogatari
    2. Owarimonogatari
    3. ZokuOwarimonogatari.

    Most probably the extra stuff you have in mind was Koyomimonogatari, in which tells us the in-between stories that happened in the series from the point where Nekomonogatari Kuro ended until some point after Tsukimonogatari (before Owarimonogatari).

    I couldn't wait for a new monogatari season, but then it hit me....there's probably going to be a lot of emphasis on the sisters again, and I'm getting really tired of anime with all the infatuation with sisters lately. Go ahead and bang your sister if you want, but just remember, she's 60% your mom and 40% your dad, so you'd be banging both your parent's DNA.

    Mostly in the second season revolve around the previous characters in Bakemonogatari to show their character developments.

    Sure those two sisters shows up but they got lesser screen time now.

    Why is Hina on the pic? Will I it be some filler inter-season where we will get a lot of slice of life with dolls? because if yes them I totally want to watch that!

    No it's actually going to be a filler/alternate universe series. It is literally both of these things. It will continue from where the original manga left off but will take place in an alternate universe. Believe it or not, it's actually kinda interesting.

    So here Hina won't die? i have a too soft heart with child-like characters to watch something where a cute little girl get a brutal death and doesn't magically return or at least becomes a cute ghost.

    Well, unfortunately, Suiseiseki can't be on all those pics but no matter. Shinku looks fairly relaxed though.

    if you are tired of "moe" you probably need to find a new hobby, because it's probably not going to end anytime soon.

    Moe as people use today "cute girls" or just as another word for cute is part of anime and manga since Osamu Tezuka so yes, better find a new hobby.

    it's fine that they can't handle it , but unless they convince the japanese to dislike it(since they are the majority viewership) it will be here forever. Maybe it's time they moved on to another hobby.

    Sometimes I also get sick of all the ecchi anime, plotless shows, romances without romance/no ending/harem end, and other shit.
    But you have to think about this: Japanese people have shitty lives, be it working class or NEETs... even in terms of love and sex they "suffer", so all they can rely on is mindless 2D service. In the US or Europe people would indulge in sex affairs, do drugs or get some booze^^
    Though that doesn't mean they should only produce those mindless anime, at least a couple "real" series have to be

    downvoted, and i didn't think i even said anything that bad, "moe"(as overused and misused as the term is) is pretty prevalent now, i'm sorry people don't like to hear that, but i'll say it again , don't like it get a new hobby because it seems like it's hear to stay, let my downvoting commence .

    Why is Free on this list and above TWGOK? and Why on Symphogear the girl in the middle (I forgot her name) why does she have big boobies? i don't recall her having big boobies.

    TWGOK sold abysmally bad (around 5k per disc). Even so, it's the company's best in their whole history, so it would probably countinue having new seasons even after the manga ends LOL

    If I had the money to buy stuff other than basic needs (food shelter clothing), I would unconditionally support TWGOK and its author by buying copies of the manga and DVD and etc... even doujinshi

    5000 per disc is not bad actually.

    Honestly, I'm curious about Free. We haven't really seen much about it, but I tend to trust KyoAni, so I don't know if they'll whore it up to Fujoshi like many others may, or if they'll give it the attention they give to the Visual Novel adaptations.

    I won't judge it until I see what they do with it, because objectively I cannot knock them for appealing to women with the same stuff we're appealed to on a constant basis, the only thing they need to do is make a decent plot and believable guy interaction and I can't see if being too bad.

    Hehe, can you imagine it being like Daily Lives of High School Boys in KyoAni animation style?
