A survey of Japanese women provides an interesting snapshot of what their favourite anime of 2010 spring were, and what they are looking forward to in the summer 2010 season. Some rather surprising choices make their way into the rankings…
The best of the spring 2010 season, based on a survey of 2,285 Japanese female anime fans:
3. Arakawa Under The Bridge
4. Ookiku Furikabutte
5. Hetalia Axis Powers
6. Kaichou wa Meido-sama!
7. Angel Beats!
9. Uragiri wa Boku no Namae wo Shitte Iru
10. Keroro Gunsou (7th season)
The high placing of K-ON!! is perhaps something of a surprise – moeblobbery evidently knows no gender bounds.
The most awaited anime of summer 2010:
1. Nurarihyon no Mago
2. Kuroshituji II
3. Sengoku Basara 2
5. Digimon Xros Wars
6. Ookami-san to Shichinin no Nakama-tachi
7. MonHun Nikki Poka Poka Airu Mura
8. Tono to Issho
9. Sekirei ~Pure Engagement~
10. Seitokai Yakuindomo
The presence of second tier oppai anime Sekirei on this list is something of a mystery…
A similar ranking supplied by Dengeki readers, presumably mostly male, may be interesting to compare against.
