Kiseijuu: Sei no Kakuritsu :3

I like the character development and the interaction with Migi :)
And the story is also very interesting to follow.

Wieeeeeeee...

@HaXX, agree with the number 1. I haven't seen only Nisekoi, Barakamon and Mushishi(thou I've seen season 1). But for me it would be:

1. NGNL
2. Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso
3. Zankyou no Terror

Kiseijuu, NGNL, Ping Pong and Fate/Stay Night UBW are the best anime of 2014.

Nisekoi, D-Frag and Noragami were pretty good in their own categories, so i felt like i should mention them to. Nisekoi was a lot of fun to watch every week, Shaft's art style just made it a lot better.

D-Frag was hilarious, i don't remember a single episode where i didn't laugh out loud, the comedy was a huge hit for me.

Noragami was pretty much a gem, sad that this didn't got a Season 2.

I think I'll take the time to watch Ping Pong before the 3 weeks then so I can feel I throw an honest vote. Otherwise it will be Barakamon.

1. Ping Pong the Animation


2. Noragami
3. Barakamon (almost done, not yet)
4. Zankyou no Terror
5. No Game No Life
6. Parasyte (not up to date)
7. D-Frag!
8. Akame ga Kill
9. Nisekoi (dropped it after a few episodes, Shinbou-style fucking up everything, as usual)

As for the rest, based on my expectation,
1. Mushishi Zoku Shou (if it is as good as what I watched in the first season)
2. Shigatsu no Kimi wa Uso
3. Fate Stay Night UBW

I will not be voting in that poll, yet.

Can't believe people actually chose Shigatsu as for AOTY. Sure, anime of the season along with Parasite... But imo, surely doesn't deserve year.

Although it had some problems, Zankyou no Terror is the anime that really stuck out in my mind last year. It was just around the time I reignited my interest for Anime, and it was the second show I watched right after Psycho-Pass season 1.

I watched it first out of whimsy, the box art on anichart looked quite striking, and the synopsis sounded not too shabby. It was the most pleasant surprise I've recently had. It was only after I had finished the show that I realised this anime was directed by the renowned Shinchiro Watanabe of Cowboy Bebop fame.

And I must say, Zankyou (as well as Psycho-Pass) introduced me to a new world of anime that I never knew before existed. The medium has reignited a sense of wanderlust that I haven't experienced since I was a child.

This is why I love anime.

Zankyou for President, 2014.

Definitely not No Gross Net Hype--unfortunate that it's currently leaning towards victory, but hopefully it's votes will wane, much like it's success on MAL.

ZnT and Parasyte are all well-and-good, but Ping Pong and Mushishi definitely have to take the cake.
It's natural for a person to deny he's a failure as a human being. That's why he searches for somebody who is more miserable than himself. That's why so much animosity exists on the internet. Those who aren't able to find a more miserable person, turn to the internet and call other people losers, even though they've never met. Just to make themselves feel superior. isn't that pathetic? There's a sense of security that comes from speaking badly of someone else. But that isn't true salvation. — Tatsuhiro Satou

I'm quite torn between Ping Pong, NGNL and Barakamon. I consider them to be quite equal and the best of the year. If I have to choose one though, I guess it would be NGNL, just for Jibril.

tbf Ping Pong looks really bad on the outside (like if you just look at the cover and synopsis)

it's not something that attracts much attention for people that haven't seen it yet

uhm NGNL is by far the most popular anime out of these twelve so it's not exactly surprising


that aside it was definitely my favorite anime of 2014 so I'm still not complaining

It wouldn't be a true year in voting panel on MAL if there wasn't some overhyped shit, no? I'm sure in a year or so, most people will join the flock and gain some retrospect.

Fun Fact: A lot of hyped shit on MAL--or outside of Japan in general-- doesn't earn anywhere near substantial money from BD sales and rankings.

lol Nah "how would they know what's leading before voting"
anyways it's simply "Accurate"
The Ecchi/Harem Genre simply has an absurdly loyal following (not to mention for 6 eps. I'd say NGNL was the best of its kind) ---I didn't vote for it though (didn't even consider it)

Ok, so I voted for F/SN:UBW I am a follower of that series so I expected good things to happen an it delivered to my liking. But a strong contender is Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso seeing the trailer quickly made it in to my PtW list. As for the poll I find NG-NL mm ok at best so yeah. Hopefully PingPong and Barakamon gets good ratings in this poll.

I'll go with Kiseijuu, though to me it's about as good as Shigatsu, UBW, Znt and Barakamon. Haven't seen Ping Pong and it seems to be good but oh well, doesn't really matter for now.

Znt was good, but the ending was not quite what I expected.
Kiseijuu is a very good show as was Barakamon. But I voted for Shigatsu because it's not often that a romance/drama makes me this interested, though there are exceptions.

I have seen all but 2 ping pong the animation ...... and the other one next to it (it was a second season of a series i never watched). Anyways overall number one I believe is No Game No Life, though Kiseijuu was close, but No Game No Life wasn't just ecchi, but had a serious story and made me want more ever week. Kiseijuu has done the same except some episodes have been not so great.

This thread got featured on FB, the problem is that poll results are not the same with their own 'best list' (you know subjective and stuff).

Please remember that the votes like 200 out of 10k members.

Noragami was the only anime that made me excited like crazy waiting for a new episode.
It surely didn't have the best plot, but it was fantastic in its own way.

wuuut... no Tokyo Ghoul :( It was what proper made me start watching anime properly.

Anyway, Barakamon defo, most touching and heart warming anime ever.

I hated no game no life, it was just boring as hell for me. It was ok for the first 5-6 eps but after that I pretty much forced myself to watch the following eps and I ended up hating it.

Outcome was the same everytime; they won this and won that, no real risks (risking the whole population was lame and cliche, oh no! The entire race will die! So dull.), not to mention I hated the art work; black shadows was replaced with red, pretty much a red shadow of death for me. The only plus point about it is that Sora has the same voice actor as Kirito :D

Seen most of these animes (10) and all in all not that impressed.

I thought Parasyte was pretty cool, but the parasytes themselves gets really annoying to listen to over and over again. Another one that was exceptionally bad was No game No life, that for some reason scored really high in this poll..

ZnT is most likely my pick out of these, but all in all, we didn't have anyone that stood out from the crowd. A lot of mediocrity this time around.

Ping Pong is the best for me. Zankyou no Terror and Barakamon are great animes too!

I've never seen Mushishi and Kiseijuu, but people always recommend them. And No Game No Life, meh... It's just a regular anime (people hype NGNL too much, like they hype SAO and their derived).

Don't make me choose between D-Frag and Barakamon... Guess I will with D-Frag but only by a small margin.

I like NGNL but it continues to be overrated as ever.
