Looks like Silver Spoon is dominating once again. The returning anime has proven to be popular not only with gamers but viewers over-all and has reached out to audiences of both genders.
The over-all top 5 are all returning anime like Sailor Moon which will be having its long awaited comeback. Girls have been especially excited for this upcoming anime as it bags the #2 spot in the female rankings and #4 over-all.
The feisty Chuunibyou cast has also shown some staying power as fans of both genders have shown they are excited for this oddball anime about weirdos.
The high school comedy Seitokai Yakuindomo also proves its staying power with the main cast’s slapstick antics coupled with the traditional Japanese manzai comedy approach.
The highest ranking new anime would be Nisekoi which literally means “fake lover”. This high school romantic comedy has shown its popularity as a manga and would look promising as an anime.
Do you agree with the rankings? Which upcoming winter 2014 anime are you most excited about?
