    Gundam Orphans is the best Gundam I've seen, so far, and a genuinely jolly good show, so I don't mind it being high. OPM should definitely be higher, though. I guess it's just a fact of life that without lots of moe it's hard to get close to the pole position in Japan. In that sense OPM waited too long before introducing ladies.

    If u were to take a poll in the West, you'd be right. Its super popular even among casual fans.
    But alas, this is a Japanese poll.

    @08:32 by today's standard, I'd say superman is full of plot holes and lack of logic compared to shows like One-punch Man or even the old version of Dragon Ball. But nice try there, m8. :)

    1. Aoki Hagane no Arpeggio

    That's why we can't have a nice things and will be doomed in near future to the cheap clunky 3D anime.

    We can't have nice things because stuff like the pointless and tedious Utawarerumono sequel is more popular than stuff that's actually trying to entertain us. Also because stuff like UBW is still showing up on lists during seasons when it's not even airing. By contrast CG might save anime, by eventually making it easier to do the kinds of superficial animations people like so that they can focus on better writing and storytelling.

    @03:43 to be fair, just because Slice-of-Life isn't your cup of tea doesn't mean shows like Utawarerumono is no good. Go back a few pages and look at the list of what western fans apparently like before you decide things for other people based on your own judgment.

    If catering to different groups of audiences = pointless and tedious then doesn't that applies to shows suitable for me but happens to be what you dislike?

    Ars Nova's actually pretty expensive 3D, it was kind of a showcase of what you could do with a proper budget and an experienced 3D team. Yes, A lot of 3DCG anime are terrible, but I have to give props to Ars Nova as it's pretty good quality animation (not great, but more than adequate) and avoids all the putty faced background characters and droopy features that are so common in 2D tv quality shows.

    Yeah, I prefer 2D still, but Ars Nova is the show that gave me hope than in a few years 3D will be able to match and/or compliment 2D animation to both improve the shows and likely decrease budgets or workloads getting us either more anime or better treated animators (we'll see which way that goes as the business decisions are made).

    Production I.G. produced anime have already achieved this 3D compliment of 2D. See: any Ghost in the Shell series, Psycho Pass, End of Evangelion, RE: Cyborg 009 (2013), to name a few.
