Watamote 500x378 Akiba Soukens Summer 2013 anime rankings midterm results

There you have it, Watamote takes the top spot. Well, looks like Tomoko not being popular is all in her head because the fans sure love to see her… SUFFER. Let’s face it, a lot of people watch the show to see her suffer. She’s kinda like the anime version of Bad Luck Brian.

Most of the top 10 is not really much of a surprise. Free! has been making waves even before the summer season has started and Monogatari is well… Monogatari, just one of the most popular series ever. Fate Ilya, Danganronpa, Rozen Maiden and Silver Spoon have maintained their fan favorite status and Servant X Service has captured the hearts of fans with its wit and humour. Do you agree with this poll’s results?
