Top 10 Summer 2009 Anime, According to Dengeki


Dengeki readers were surveyed as to which anime they thought the best of summer 2009, yielding results which in retrospect are not entirely surprising.

However, when their most anticipated summer anime are compared to the most well received after the fact, the results are quite interesting…

Firstly, these are the most anticipated series prior to the start of the summer season:

1. Spice and Wolf II

2. Umineko no Naku Koro ni

3. Zan Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei

4. Bakemonogatari

5. Canaan

6. Taisho Yakyuu Musume

7. GA Geijutsuka Art Design Class

8. Kanamemo

9. Tokyo Magnitude 8.0

10. Umimonogatari

And these are the most highly rated after the finish of the season:

1. Bakemonogatari

2. Saki

3. Fullmetal Alchemist

4. Canaan

5. Umineko no Naku Koro ni

6. Valkyria Chronicles

8. Dragonball KAI

9. Tokyo Magnitude 8.0

10. Requiem for the Phantom

Dengeki readers will not be winning any awards for punditry it seems; 5 of the anime remained in the list, but all the top spots were upsets and a number of the most anticipated sunk without trace…
