At least Bungou Stray Dogs was in the top 10.. and Kamiya Hiroshi is the best seiyuu...

Can't believe Koutetsujou no Kabaneri got into top 10. What a load of shit.

Where's Hiroto Suwa from Orange?? Best supporting character??? Tss.. I was hoping that there will be a supporting character category and he'll be in the list.

Dec 30, 2016 6:04 AM by TheOtaku_Luffy

Idk how to feel about this lol. Kabaneri really wasn't that good

Nov 22, 2016 7:05 PM by xKaneki11

I agree with a god part of this list, except for a few minor details

Oct 24, 2016 6:17 PM by NG_Chloe

The film ranking seems more reliable

^_^ It's what they call different tastes, but thanks for proving my point about most people being judgmental.

Kabaneri 1-2 = Damnnnnnnnnnnn, Hype!
Kabaneri 3-7 = Nice! I'm still enjoying this show.
Kabaneri 8-10 = Alright, Okay, Mhhh, Ummm
Kabaneri 11-12 = What is this crap

That's how I felt when watching the show, but still gave it good score for certain reasons.

Japan is a fucking joke. Those winners... what the fuck?

Subaru won as best male character, but Satoru from Erased didn't? LOL BYE

Oct 15, 2016 5:40 AM by archaai

Koutetsujou no Kabaneri ranked #1? Seriously Newtype? -__- I'm sorry, I don't agree with this.

@jackaus Wow Delta is on the list....

Something surprise me is that Delta didn't get sound award but got screenplay... What the hell....

Character design wise, yep good job to the girl who did it.

Mecha design was lazy as hell and still got awards. GG. Me mad bro.

Yeap, yeap, screen play it certainly doesn't deserve... second half of the thing drags it down even one argue first half is ok... then, it wasn't in sound track? They may picked the wrong ops (most of its insert songs are way better than op) but the music/sound is perhaps the only thing it holds up to certain quality compare to past macross.

No Joker Game, no Rakugou, no 91Days... and they were quite easily the best show of the last few seasons.

Re:Zero I can accept its popularity, even if I find it totally overhyped and overrated. It's good, but clearly not a masterpiece like all fan believes...

But Kabaneri and Macross Delta... like, no please. Just no.

At least there is Konosuba, Gintama (but it's not surprising at all) and Durararax2

I'd like to hear full-description for voting Kabaneri as No.1

For me :

Kabaneri 1-2 = Damnnnnnnnnnnn, Hype!
Kabaneri 3-7 = Nice! I'm still enjoying this show.
Kabaneri 8-10 = Alright, Okay, Mhhh, Ummm
Kabaneri 11-12 = What is this crap

Rem number 1 in both FemCharacter and FemVA. Well deserved. Say what you want about Re:Zero but Rem was a solid character.

Japan wants another nuke

We have greatly disappointing Hayao Miyazaki, this isn't what he would want

Oct 12, 2016 9:04 AM by Neramore

Shinobu is in the "Best Females" category. I think that the the argument over who is best girl in the monogatari series is over. (for this year, at least)

Oct 12, 2016 9:01 AM by Neramore

I am satisfied with this at least.

Oct 12, 2016 8:54 AM by aa-dono

Haikyuu not mentioned anywhere, Macross Delta in top 3 anime.

What the fucking fuck, Japan.

Megumin not nominated for best female character feels bad man

Don't worry she will destroy the Newtype office soon.

Glad to see Re:Zero in most categories on the list. Subaru is deffo one of my favourite characters.

As usual barely anyone on MAL can say anything without being insulting and disrespectful to other people. They'll be needing common decency schools to send people to soon.


What's wrong with his post ? His just tell a opinion .
