In Japan, transformation sequences are a norm, and people actually look forward to watching them. NTT Docomo’s D’Anime Store streaming service recently polled users on their favorite anime transformation sequences.

The streaming service divided the poll into two separate results. The first poll is for FEMALE users, while the second poll is for MALE users. Here’s what they found out:


10 – Ayakashi – Samurai Horror Tales

9 – Attack on Titan

8 – Kamigami no Asobi

7 – Cardcaptor Sakura

6 – World Trigger

5 – Macross Delta

4 – Kill la Kill

3 – Blue Exorcist

2 – Sailor Moon

1 – Cute High Earth Defense Club LOVE!


10 – Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya 2wei Herz!

9 – Sword Art Online

8 – Symphogear

7 – Flip Flappers

6 – Overlord

5 – Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn RE:0096

4 – Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha

3 – Accel World

2 – Yuuki Yuna is a Hero

1 – Kill la Kill

Looks like the poll featured plenty of huge upsets, with Cute High Earth Defense Club LOVE! dealing a huge upset to the anime with perhaps the most iconic transformation sequence of all, Sailor Moon. Yuuki Yuna is a Hero also did quite well, beating out Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha, which didn’t even make the Top 3.
