If I could remove the 3 demographics and replace them with actual genres then romance, thriller, psychological would be in my top 10 as well.
One Piece episode 914 & 915 were a mistake.

Sports is the biggest surprise, but almost all of them are either moe or ecchi sports anime. Also ecchi deserves to be in the top 10.

Agree that the demographics should not be in there otherwise replacing Seinen and Shounen would be Demons and Historical.

10. Comedy

I don't actually view this as all that accurate, but I understand statistically why it's configured that way. For example, I like series from every major demographic classification, but if I had to choose one, I'm interested in more Seinen series than I am Shounen. Also, I would say "Demons" and "Magic" are inflated in position, as there are several series I've watched with that tag where even if you consider them as equivalent to serving as a genre in the database, they still aren't the primary genre for that series and it would be something else instead (like Adventure, Drama, Fantasy, Action, even Horror or Historical, etc.)

It lists my 11th top selection as Josei. I would say to eliminate Shounen and Josei, because they're not genres and it's more interesting that way, and my next three after that are as follows: Thriller, Mystery, and Drama. And I would say inclusion of those in part or in full (at least 2 of the 3) would make the list more accurate and representative of my tastes.

Glad military managed to sneak in to the top 10, beat out shounen by .01. Otherwise, looking about where I would expect to be honest.

This is after nearly 700 anime and looks pretty accurate. Demography: Older male. Shoujo ranks this high because I watched all entries in the Natsume Yuujinchou francise, and a few genre classics such as Versailles, Utena, Nana, and Escaflowne. They are all rated with high scores, so in anime+'s weighted score this pushes the genre up this far.

(Got a feeling this thread is gonna get deleted tho)

I mean of course this is accurate. :/ I do love comedy tho. Just an overtagged genre. The next two down are Slice of Life and Parody.

Weird to see Supernatural, Mystery, Military and Drama in this list. While Supernatural and Military are just things I don't search for, Mystery and Drama usually put me off from watching something.

I haven't updated in 28 days, so things will probably shift, but for now:

By weighted average:

1 Shounen
2 Mystery
3 Military
4 Seinen
5 Thriller
6 Drama
7 Psychological
8 Supernatural
9 Historical
10 Samurai
11. Slice of Life

By average:

1 Thriller
2 Samurai
3 Police
4 Military
5 Mystery
6 Psychological
7 Parody
8 Vampire
9 Seinen
10 Shounen
11 Historical

Parody was in the top 10 for weighted averages but fell off. Only major surprise is Vampire getting #8 on average.

The top 5 appears to be fine. I honestly didn't like the idea of having space (possibly because the only thing I saw from that category was Cowboy Bebop which I rated pretty high for both series and movie)

I would also like to add that I have "horror" as my least favorite in terms of weighted score.

I feel like these are true to an extent (except sports since I just haven't seen nearly as many so it has a higher weighted score), but I also watched a lot more action, thriller, sci-fi, etc. up until a few months ago when I switched to watching more SOL, music and romance anime. I usually look at the time spent stats tbh since I feel like that tells me more about my watching habits.

Weird that there's no ecchi, probably because I score it kinda low, I didn't expect vampire to be no10. Pretty accurate but I am interested in supernatural, samurai, adventure and mecha too. Well, top 3 is solid.

Here's what mine gave :


I get the feeling that the reason fantasy isn't in there is because I watch fantasy shows way too easily so I end up having a lot of subpar show of that genre in my list, lowering the median score by a lot (it's down to 29th place in that list).

By the way interesting enough Harem and Ecchi are dead last (38 and 39) in that list, and school and shounen are barely doing any better than those, so I guess it's still pretty accurate despite the few weird position due to watching too many of something.
...Oh and shoujo is waaaay higher than shounen, it's 14th vs 36th, interesting. I guess I'm way more picky about the shoujo I watch compared to shounen tagged anime.

Wtf! I don't remember watching that many Magic shows. I hate mahou shoujo animes as well. How the heck did that become #1!

And wth is the vampire genre. I only remember Diabolik Lovers but I didn't like it.

Sci-fi is #11. I wanted it to appear. Everything else seems to be alright.
SAO Progressive needs an anime. It is the real SAO not the rushed original.
