    Someone goofed by mistakenly putting Non Non Biyori in 14th, when its clearly a top 3 anime this season.

    I agree, it should be at least in the top 5.

    Overlord is the best anime of this season in my personal Ranking. After watched the first episode I was dumbfounded. I still stay at the first episode of overlord.then I watched it again and again. I was so expect for next episode.I bear the impulse of reading novel because it will reduce the fun of watching this anime.

    The list smells like the work of kids.

    Kind of, but I'd think that some of those anime wouldn't make the list at all if it was just kids voting (unless there's some kids who are ahead of their level of maturity, lol)

    Tough crowd. MonMusume and Prison School are hilarious and deserve to be higher...

    I'd totally watch and laugh at those shows as early as age 11. Maybe even more. And I'm someone who can't and never could stand the kind of other adult humor in Family Guy and recent comedies films.

    This list will repeat when they realize not all shows started, and the better ones are yet to start hahahah.

    Always the shitty list of nearly all airing shows.

    Not really no. If it doesn't sell well on DVD/BD then it won't be getting anything. Same applies to every anime out there.

    Liking GATE and Dandelion quite a lot for this season.

    Also, was hoping for a classic/template magical fantasy story with Rokka no Yuusha, but it ends up being a mystery/detective story wrapped in a fantasy setting...

    Overlord so low in the list? That first episode made me read the light novels of an anime for FIRST TIME!

    The idea is fun and I really wanted to know where it's going after the first episode.
    However already after the second episode you notice that the pace is rather slow to establish the world.
    Maybe it's gonna rise in popularity if it actualy gets somewhere interesting.

    3rd episode came out today. Blood EVERYWHERE. Gives it a reason to be in top 10.

    The Death Knight scene is so graphic, I love it!

    i find overlord's 'stuck in the virtual world' setting more interesting than other recent animes of same premise; this time it's you (in the ultimate roleplaying in your life) and the NPCs given life as according to the game's lore. no other players so no boring & mundane RL interactions.

    plus, there's little censoring (well, at least not too heavy of a censoring that GATE and prison school suffers from), sasuga madhouse. the scene where the knight literally got hacked to death is superb.

    Though let's admit it, he can be really ruthless when he needs to.

    it's exciting to know what really happened to him and his body, that he's now losing his human's apathy. did his whole being got sucked and merged with the game, or only his soul, or he literally fell into another dimension after somewhat merging with the whole game system

    I like Overlord because it focuses on the 'evil' overlord. It's like Overlord, the game, turned into anime.

    *THAT anime made #3?! The one by the mangaka with ZERO knowledge of basic anatomy?? No thanks! Can't focus on the plot. Too distracted by, 'This artist is full of shit!'', thoughts.

    1. ushio & tora

    AW YIS

    though personally, i think shimoneta should rank higher than run-of-the-mill-dandelion, which is boring and cliched as fuck

    Ushio and Tora and Gatchaman Crowds are both pretty great.

    Gatchaman this season kinda disappoint me though, the first season was more like "Hajime-chan Sugoi!!" "UtsuUtsu Kawaii!!" but this season is like meh..

    Quite surprised with U&T, I've been watching it and I wouldn't expect it on anyone list with how everyone these days hates outdated character designs.

    cuz it's just a mass of undeniable epicness, manliness and nostalgic feel. even moefags can't deflect that.

    How in the hell is the amazing adaptation of Prison School so low and the terrible adaptation of GATE so high. The GATE manga is one of my favorites at the moment but god damn those new character designs are garbage, the brutality has been wiped clean, and the pacing/directing is shit.

    Yeah, a perfect adaptation of a manga is a rare thing and it really ought to get the recognition it deserves for that.
