Reader’s Poll for Anime of the Year 2015

Here’s the poll for folks to vote for their Anime of the Year for 2015 before we all tell you why you’re wrong and we’re right. Unless you vote for what we chose, then in which case you are right and good. The same rules apply as last year. It’s specifically for anime that ENDED in 2015. Any anime aired as a split cours (where there is less than a 4 month gap between seasons) is counted as one season. This means anime like Osomatsu-san or Gate are not eligible as a second season has been planned that is less than 4 months after the first season ended.

Poll is below the line. By all means comment and tell us your choices. You will still be wrong, but it’s still nice to know how wrong you are.

    Shirobako, Hibike and Owarimonogatari

    Shirobako, Prison School, Non Non Biyori Repeat.

    Cross Ange, Ranpo Kitan and Plastic Memories because, like Inushinde, I always aim for the bottom.

    One Punch Man, Parasyte, and Shirobako. It’s been a decent year for anime I think. I see a lot of shows here with 0 votes so far.

      Give it 24 hours, the votes will come. Of course, it’s rather unlikely that people’s top 3 will deviate too widely outside the current top 10, so there might still be some decent shows with low votes.

    One Punch, Parasyte, Owarimonogatari. Shirobako honorable mention, but I haven’t finished it yet.

  7. Skidda

    Shirobako, Parasyte and Baby Steps 2 (which is not mentioned).

    UFO, owari, SNAFU

    P.S. Why is the order of the poll all janky?

    Non Non Biyori Repeat

    This show was the only think that made me smile while I was really depressed. Thank you Non Non Biyori for making me smile.

    Noragami Aragoto

    I really liked the first season already, but holy shit was this awesome. I’m surprised that it has gotten so little votes. Both Bishamon and Ebisu arcs were so great. I really want a 3rd season now. You can’t get much better than this.

    One Punch Man

    Really well done adaptation. It didn’t disappoint. Second season?

    Yuri bear storm, Shirobako, School Live.

    Shirobako, Your Lie in April and Hibike Euphonium.

    Shirobako, Hibike! Euphonium, One Punch Man

    I voted Shirobako, Hibike! Euphonium, One Punch Man. It was a hard choice and I wish I could have had more than 3 votes because I also loved:
    Non Non Biyori Repeat
    Your Lie in April
    Yuri Bear Storm
    Noragami 2 (Bishimon may be my next Wafu)

    I just want the /a/-scum who voted crap like Euphonium or Biyori to leave my comfy blog, especially when Scamp makes basically his entire blogging etic in going against everything which a stands for. You’re ruining animes you filthy pedophiles.

        They are accusing everyone who likes these two shows of being pedophiles, simple! *rolls eyes* (Also apparently they are unaware that this blog already has positive mentions of biyori although not by scamp but one of the other two.)

        That’s Inushinde. I’ve never watched Non Non Biyori.

    • Posted December 31, 2015 at 12:49 am | Permalink

      If you watched Sound Euphonium and Non Non Biyori and somehow saw wank-bait, I think that speaks more to your frame of mind than anyone else. Wow.

    Sidonia S2, Owarimonogatari, Perfect Insider,

    I’m sorry I haven’t watched Shirobako yet.

    Also, a 7 Seeds adaptation would be amazing.

    There were things I really enjoyed but the anime I look back on with the most fondness and the desire to rewatch is definitely Akatsuki no Yona.
    The first OP (which they should have stuck with) is part of a splendid soundtrack that does wonders for getting the viewer into the world of Yona and giving it a certain feel.

    Yona’s badassery comes from how she changes and hardens from the beginning to the end of the anime, and it’s nice to see Hak, who had known her since before the story’s inciting incident, notice these changes in her. I’ve seen some people get frustrated with the first few episodes because Yona is useless and like a doll that needs to be dragged around everywhere – but that’s the point. She was ignorant and spoiled, and her father never let her handle weapons. She has never experienced hardship, and she is going to have to learn how to live the hard life from here on out.

    There are some things I don’t especially like or am indifferent to, but I really hope Yona gets more seasons. There is something in the manga that I especially want to see animated.

    Young Black Jack is missing. Also does Lupin III count? Given its a 25 episode show that won’t finish until next year.

  19. Aethelwulf
    Posted December 30, 2015 at 3:03 am | Permalink

    Went with JOJO, Noragami 2 and Akatsuki no Yona. If it were possible, I’d have given all my votes to Yona. Who could ever say no to a shoujo anime with betrayal, murder, and phenomenal fight scenes?

    Thought about voting for Log Horizon, but then I remembered that the second half went absolutely nowhere.

  20. Hint
    Posted December 30, 2015 at 8:02 am | Permalink

    Shirobako, Prison school and Baby Steps 2/Owarimono/Parasyte.

    Sorry Stardust Crusaders, you were only great when Dio appeared. In return, Diamond is Unbreakable will definitely be my top1 next year.

    Sound Euphonium, Shimoneta, Cinderella Girls

    Je suis Uzuki

  22. Posted December 31, 2015 at 12:46 am | Permalink

    Shirobako, SNAFU & Non Non Biyori, with Cinderella Girls a close forth.

    This was a surprising year in anime for me.

  23. Posted December 31, 2015 at 1:05 am | Permalink

    >No Muco
    >No Hackadoll
    >No Miss Monochrome
    >No Somera
    >No Animator Expo
    >No Wakakozake
    >No Comical Psychosomatic Medicine
    >Only the most memetic shit that 4chans and reddits discuss daily
    I thought you were different, Scamp, I thought you knew how important is to educate the masses that shorts can be just as good as these bloated, shitty full-leght series BUT I WAS WRONG ALL MEN ARE THE SAME AFTER ALL
    Voted only for Maria because there’s nothing else for me in this RIGGED POLL

  24. Posted December 31, 2015 at 3:59 am | Permalink

    Ushio and Tora doesn’t end this year ’cause there is one more cour. Despite that I’m picking that, One-Punch Man and Gakkou Gurashi as my top 3 even thought I haven’t actually finished the first two but I know how they turn out in their manga form.
