Bungou Stray Dogs really dominated, as they have three entries in the male rankings, and a surprising three entries in the female rankings, not to mention they topped the anime rankings, with Dazai taking the top spot in the male rankings.

And as this is the Newtype Rankings, the Fate series remains to be popular, as both Saber and Archer remain in the Top 5. I wonder what happened to Kira Yamato?
