SideM was atrocious and embarrassing to watch, and this is coming from someone who really likes all-male anime series.

Accepting that other people might like didnt things doesn't mean they don't have bad tastes.

I don't care personally, just as long anime studios doesn't look at this list and think "yes..we have to do more of this".


Of course the classic my taste in Japanese cartoons>>>Your taste in Japanese cartoons.

I don't care what anime studios produce as long as I can find what I want and others can find what they like too. And anime studios rather produce what large number of people like instead of serving an elitist and narcisstic irrelevant vocal minority writing long ass essays about their taste in Japanese cartoons and the plebians who like things they don't like lol. Anime is medium to entertain not some scientific research subject or something.

Ah yes, yearly newtype polls. That time of the year when newfren MAL tards come to the realization that the contrarian hipsters in here are a very vocal and irrelevant minority.

You have 2 options now. Either grow up and come to accept people might have liked things you don't like or just be a denialist like how the rest evolved into.

Because next year you will be seeing Kirito and Asuna at the top and better prepare yourself now than to cry yourself in anguish that you hold very little power.

Now I know where them fanbases at. It's okay, not that surprising.

I hope that next year SAO:alicization and Tensei slime made it to the list for the best anime series.

Oct 9, 11:25 AM by madarchod

As much as it pains me to watch the entirety of this list, I am still eternally glad that they include Sora Yori in almost all category.

Though this begs the question, what is the main differing factor between Japan's and Western audiences' taste when it comes to like an anime?

Tada Kun

To be fairly honest, I ain't even complaining here. Despite some of my qualms for some of the rankings, hey I like this.

NewType is about mecha shows from their name itself lol so that must be the reason for Darling in the FranXX popularity there (i enjoyed that show regardless)
