Poll: AOTY So Far?

For shonen standards, Kimetsu No Yaiba is good. However, I feel like the spectacular animation blinds people from the underlying basic story. It's nothing special, calm down people.
For me, I voted Vinland Saga. I prefer stories that slowly introduce and establish characters while some go through major development. Story is more important than art in my opinion. While Mob Psycho 100 S2 and AOT S2 P3 are both very great, but Vinland Saga managed to resonate with me the most.
However, Vinland Saga's story has just truly begun and I look forward to how they approach it.

I think talking about AOTY is kind of... not pointless, but... it's decided by what the most popular genre is. Action stuff is always more popular, so a decent action show would win a contest over a masterpiece romcom every time.

Talking about romance or comedy or drama of the year rather than anime of the year is a lot more meaningful, in my opinion. It becomes less a genre popularity contest that way.
Yuri on ice and made in abyss won AOTY of the year for their year so I see your point but I don’t think it applies to every year. Maybe this one in particular just because the strongest ones apart from kaguya-sama IMO are action. Also pretty sure everyone agreed outside of awards that a place further than the universe was AOTY

I liked the first few episodes of Shield Hero so so much, but then it just got progressively worse. What a waste.

I feel like we really shouldn't count non sequels, otherwise the AcademiaTARDS will show up next season.

My vote goes to aot but I think Vinland has a good chance considering how it turns out. And next season bnha is gonna be really good, not on level of aot or Vinland but better than most of anime on the list

Vinland Saga assuming that Wit Studio will keep doing a stellar job with its adaptation just like with the first six episodes. If they screw this up later then Mob Psycho 100 II takes the spot. I think though that the latter has the "Episode of the Year" (episode 5).


Is that the one where regin goes to the tv show?
It has tough competition with aot "hero" ep.

Odd, your score is rather low for it to have a chance. You didn't like episode 6, it seems?

Yeah it is kinda. Until ep 5 I really liked it, but rn I am in Noman's land. If the series returns stronger and gets some momentum I definetly see potential for AoTY.

If you're on the edge, I'd suggest reading the manga. It covers some outstanding parts, those are very much later though. It will take a lot of episodes to reach those parts. An episode does not define a series. Note, that Vinland Saga was originally a shonen when it was first published and next episode will cover chapter 1. There will be more action and war than highlighting how brutal it is like the past six episodes and there's a character that is rather Shonen trope-ish (depending on your thoughts really). Nevertheless, it serves as a good introduction to older Thorfinn.

Odd that you didn't like the 2nd half of episode 6. I liked how it served a purpose for Thorfinn's humanity fading away.

It's attack on titan, it's always attack on titan. Not including sequels though, my AOTY is Vinland Saga.

No, that's the Mob vs Mogami one. The Reigen one was episode 7 which is my second choice for the title.

No.

Mob Psycho still has better animation, KnY fans just don’t notice with how good the art style is.
nah bru demon slayer slays in animation, it has no competition.

Idk, I didn't watch Mob Psycho.
"How good the art style is" means nothing.
Animation can be rated more objectively than an Art-style.
Actually artstyle is 100% subjective, like in my case, I can't stand the art style of Mob Psycho.
Also Artsyle doesn't mean good animation.

I mean unless you haven’t update your list then you haven’t even watched Mob Psycho so you wouldn’t know. Same goes for @Kuro_Neko04 so neither of you have actually witnessed how MP100 had consitant what I would call movie quality animation even for basic movements most anime would take shortcuts for.

Also @Kuro_Neko04 I wasn’t implying art style makes animation better that’s why I singled out art style as a separate thing in the first place. I just can’t think of a reason for saying KnY has better animation unless you haven’t seen MP100 and I didn’t know you didn’t.
i'm jk. seen some scenes of mob it's very unique and intriguing i plan to watch it soon

AOT Season 3 Part 2 as of now. Everything of it was so enjoyable and I can't think of anything I didn't like about it. However, Fruits Basket (2019) is another contender to me, although that's mainly out of nostalgia.

I'm here as long as my wings can fly.

Shinseiki Evangelion (TV, 26eps), AoeY and AotY since it was released worldwide recently, or at least it seems so, seeing how everyone made acquaintance with it only in the last months.

PS: joking because this kind of thing is a joke in itself (just like the sacred Animage Grand Prix).

Mob psycho 100 II is really overrated. I mean, it was good (very good) until we got the last arc. First season was better

AoT S3 P2 is one of the best seasons in anime/TV history.

2nd would be Mob at this moment, but it's going to be Vinland Saga, what's coming is really good.

I just feel we are not giving Promised Neverland enough credit. For a show about 12 year old's to entertain and engage you is quite something. Although I still think AOTS3 takes the cake.

AOT Season 3 Part 2

The emotions in this season is something you can't describe.

Ahh, I miss the emotion scene from One Piece back when Luffy is still recruiting crew and especially Going Merry.

lmao you didn't even read any of the replies where it was explained why jojo isn't on the list. Once again, it's not on the list because it started in 2018. Do I care that most of it aired in 2019? No. Is it going to be in my list of stuff from 2019 if it started in 2018? No.
"lmao lmao" yes I know why it isn't on the list and I disagree. if it aired mostly in 2019 then it can be considered it aired in 2019. one piece isn't all from 1997 even though it started in 1997. it aired constantly from this time which means it's not aired just in 1997, 2007 or even 2017. you don't consider one piece a "1997 anime"
same with jojo.

AOTs3p2's first arc wasn't any better either due to plot armors but the last arc was the best arc of AOTS3P2 which is my favorite in the whole AOT anime.
And now if you say that ep.4 and ep.5 of AOTS3P2 were awesome which I also agree, then, MOB 100 season 2's last arc ep.8 and ep.11 were great too. It's just that the other 4 episodes in AOT first arc and 4 episodes in MP100 2's last arc weren't that great in comparison to even their own episodes.

Vinland Saga has literally 6 episodes out, out of 24. I mean, I hope it does well, but it can still go down. Examples: Gangsta, Erased, Etc
I find this poll being done in August to be ridiculous


Having read the manga of the whole season, I can safely say its not going to go downhill.

same with jojo.
So you knew the reason but still decided to reply... and you say you don't give a shit like you "used to". Ok man you do you. I would still call One Piece an anime from 1997 that's still ongoing. And saying jojo aired in 2019 isn't an opinion. It's a fact it aired during 2019 but it didn't start airing in 2019. If Jojo was hypothetically an undeniable 10/10 for it's whole airtime are you saying it should be AOTY for both 2018 and 2019?
There should be a separate AOTY for continuing anime because there is no way Jojo, one piece etc. can be a contender for 2018,1997 etc. respectively as these are the past years as if u don't wanna mix it with latest year anime but IMO what's the matter if all anime aired in 2019(either new or continuing) can be applicable for the race of AOTY. For example: If an continuing anime airing in an year had multiple awesome episodes but will never be applicable for the race of AOTY despite giving so many amazing episodes just due to the reason that it's an continuing anime sounds stupid.
