Spring is in the air and with the new season comes new anime. With many of the new spring anime already premiering last week, Sony has announced the initial Tornado Rankings for this new season, basing it on which anime series were recorded using the Sony Torne app or device for PC, PS Vita, PS3 and PS4.
The Torne device is used to record TV shows by using a PC, PS Vita, PS3 or a PS4, and Sony records which shows were recorded the most using their device. This is also a good way to gauge which anime are doing well when new seasons begin. But do take note that recording anime through Torne is just one of the methods in watching anime in Japan, as others include watching it online via Niconico, recording it with a normal VCR, or just watching it on TV when it actually airs. Here are their findings:
19) Show By Rock
18) My Love Story (Oremonogatari)
17) Triage X
16) Wish Upon the Pleiades
15) Knights of Sidonia: Battle for Planet Nine
14) My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU. Too
13) The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan
12) Plastic Memories
11) Sound Euphonium
10) Gunslinger Stratos
8) Is it Wrong to Pick-up Girls in a Dungeon?
7) Blood Blockade Battlefront
6) Seraph of the End
