Sword Art Online II dominates the Newtype Rankings once again as it takes the top spot for the Male Rankings, the Female Rankings, the Series rankings, and the Most Streamed Anime Series rankings. Equally impressive is Sinon’s victory over fellow SAO heroine Asuna, who would usually be the favorite in Newtype.

Recently concluded anime like Monthly Shoujo Nozaki-kun and The Irregular at Magic High School showed a whole lot of fight against SAO, however, it seems like the Kirito hype train is just too much for them to handle. Aldnoah.Zero also showed a good rankings while Gundam SEED’s Kira and Lacus ARE STILL THERE. A surprising entry in the female rankings meanwhile show that an anime character is not too old to be included in the Top 10 as the original Gundam series’ Sayla Mass makes it to #10 from waaaaaaaaaaay back in 1979.

The SAO train seems to have been stopped over at the Anime Blu-ray rankings by Japan’s top grossing anime movie, Disney’s Frozen. Yes folks, Frozen is regarded as an anime in Japan. This is because everything animated in Japan is called basically anime, so that means that even Spongebob is an anime over in Japan. Terror in Resonance was also able to stop the SAO train over at the Most Recorded Anime category.
