Surprised to see Railgun ranking above Durarara. o.o At least Durarara is pretty high, but nothing really to say.

In fact, Giant Killing ranked top in my spring expectation.
Guess I'm quite alone here and in the otaku world lol

the fact that Rainbow,House of five Leaves, and yojo-han aren't even on this irritates me. Japan fails (or polls in general)

Hidamari was actually the best Winter anime for me... kind of sad that despite high expectations, Hidamari didn't do as well. Oh well...
I heard Hidamari dvd sale wasn't bad being a third season. I went pretty decent.


The figures were decent, but the expectations were that it would be the best anime of winter season (and I agree, despite not having watched all of them, but I think I've watched most of the better ones). I was just kind of hoping it would be #1 or #2 in the end. Oh well, good enough, I guess.

Railgun 1st => wtf?
The next 5 are comprehensible. Finale below expectation, too.
Why ranked Hanamaru Youchien so high, when it merely sold 1k BDs?

Sadly, spring seems quite boring compared to that. There is Working!! and Arakawa...

So the new marketing strategy is the exclamation mark?

LOL^^


I'd say "satisfaction" and actual attach rate aren't connected

funny how the other titles expected in Winter didn't do very well *cough*Ookami *cough*

this x100

I expected Durarara!! to be the first one on the satisfaction list, I'm surprised :o

Well, its normal to see K-ON on top of the expectation list since I have high expectations of it too :P Hoping to see some development in the series at last, lol

Railgun was pretty enjoyable for me as well as Baka Test X3 but Sora no Woto's only on 9 but It's still nice to see it on the list.

Wait....what does #two-season title in Railgun mean? does that mean it has a sequel?


No. It was already in Fall season. The list for the winter season (and actually for only anime that start in winter, not before). Hence two seasons.

Railgun 1st? Wasn't expecting that...At least they got some right...funny how the other titles expected in Winter didn't do very well *cough*Ookami *cough*

yup, it do have some nice stories though it is cliche

Railgun is meh. Its pretty boring... but I've seen worse. People seem to love it though. Never quite got why.


try to understand the story and you'll know why. It's not really dull but I do prefer Katanagatari and Durarara to be the 1st & 2nd.


Anyway I kinda like these rankings. Only that why Ookami Kakushi was on the list?
The story is dull...

I happen to love Railgun, but I don't see why it was number one, especially over Kimi ni Todoke and Durarara... :/

Oh well.


I see your point there. Yes, railgun is good but Durarara and Kimi ni Todoke are much better, and Katanagatari also.

Mod edit : ..

Durarara!! - 3rd, as expected. I hope it rise to 1st!
Katanagatari: 6th. Next ep is gonna be a really good fighting action one so I think it rises too.
