    Machine Doll is good but the plot is really...well lacking.. They just want you to know everything without telling you anything...Yeah no thanks.

    And YAY GJ Non Non Biyori.

    You're kidding right? The plot in Machine Doll is actually more solid than most other series this season and should be at #1 on this list. It's a disgrace that it's so low.

    Not equal to child porn when an actual real-life child is not being used. Enough said.

    Come on now. This is the only "Legal" way the Japanese can see Under-Age Tits without being called out on it... though it might be worth noting how many times it has been under fire by world governments pressuring Japanese Government to put an end to Pedophilia Animes.

    It's just like Ken Akamatsu says: This it where we make our money... child porn.

    Jailing people is more important than preventing real child porn from being made?

    Ah, but if they remove the not-real "child porn" then there will be more demand for the real stuff and they'll be able to jail more people.

    Outbreak is not even interesting at the slightest.

    And why does Valvrave 2 is even on the list!?

    Maybe because people don't think the same as you.

    Outbreak is excellent if you want a good otaku comedy that isn't completely asinine. I agree with you on Valvrave 2 though, that is a horrible anime.

    Missing Log Horizon, wtf?

    Comment by Anonymous

    Log Horizon sucks, at least SAO was enjoyable for the fight scenes alone until Asuna turn into Princess Peach 2.0.

    You kidding me? How the hell does it suck?

    It's better than Valvrave to say in the least and all of those terrible songs the producers somehow manage to fit into almost every single episode.

    If you haven't played a single MMORPG with even a little of passion, it isn't the anime for you. For those who have (who usually give a toss about classes, technique effects and the sort), it syncs well.

    Of course, gloating off the effects of moves can prove fatal, if not for the fact that the MC only gloated when he had his fights in the bag (not to mention he probably has more techs up his sleeve being near the level cap and whatnot anyway).

    The character designs are mediocre (the MC looks fine whenever not wearing his glasses), I'll admit. Though the characters' personalities and development compensates well for that.

    shut up and go watch pokemon you dumb fuck

    if its to technical then stop watching anime and give up on life stupid

    the explaining powers to the enemy, its called a thought chain, they arent actually fucking saying it

    and there are far more annoying MC then him

    Comment by Anonymous

    I'll give that... Valvrave is garbage, but the char designs in Log Horizon sucks ass!

    The MC looks like a joke.

    The little purple-haired girl is all over his dick for no fucking reason.

    The fight scenes are too technical... explaining every little detail of their damn move-set.


    I'm done with Log Horizon!

    Non Non Biyori is a good anime, but best of the season? Unless everything else is incredibly low quality I just can't see it.

    everything else is incredibly low quality! this is the most forgettable anime season I've seen in years....

    I think Noukome and Log Horizon quite interesting..

    Yowamushi Pedal, Outbreak Company and Golden Time was watchable.

    Comment by Anonymous

    I am STILL shuffling through the list of series released this season searching for one that I would even find comparable to other season's Top Lists.

    This is an ALL FAIL season.

    Is this ranking based on people's preferences on nico or view counts from videos for these shows?

    If its the latter, than this list is flawed... for example half of the shows are not airing free on Nico and only fraction of people watches them (such as Non Non Biyori). How is that going to represent Nico denizen's "viewing habits" as whole?

    There is a guy called "Ner". He broadcasts live stream at and let listeners vote for each anime in this season.

    They never really do, these type of rankings are almost always going to suffer from response bias. Hell, this shouldn't even count as a overall 'denizens' list. Its 83.7% males to 16.3% females, I'd say that if it had to be a ranking of anything (which it shouldn't) it'd only represent the male viewing preferences as of fall season, up to now.

    Don't try to inject logic or rational thought into this. The people who want it to be true will downvote you just on principle, and the people who know better don't care. Just let them have their fun, and pretend that it's true. We all know these lists are meaningless popularity contests, not judges of any given anime's actual merits. There's no need to be concerned.

    Why Yuushibu is so low ?
    However it's totally better than Noucome like ecchi\slice for example.
    Im sad of this >:(

    24. Tokyo Ravens WTF!??!!?
    This series should be at least a bit higher on the list
    it has solid animation and excellent paced story compared to others like machine doll and strike the blood which was rushed to death

    Yep. My thought exactly.

    If I disagreed with one or two list rankings I would chalk it up to a question of differences in personal taste or cultural variation, but this list is a list of suck.

    The reason why there is so much lame, story-less, derivative, bad anime, is not because the studios can't do any better, it's because Japanese love crap. Especially crap with lolis exposing their pantsu.

    Yeah, they'll even vote on anime and act like it means something. Some people like to discuss the merits of anime, others like to jump on popularity trends. That's life.
