5 Days Left To Vote – Pick Your Favourite Anime of Winter 2019

The Morose Mononokean Season 2 Episode 10

We are down to the final five days to get your vote in. And there’s now a clear distinction between the front of the pack and the rest. Still, the top 3 anime chosen in this poll will go into the anime of the year poll at the end of the year so even if your favourite doesn’t take the top spot, it could be in with a chance later in the year when more people have had the chance to see it.

As the Winter shows draw to a close it is time to ask yourself what your favourites have been. This isn’t about technical proficiency but about pure enjoyment as a viewer and what you have wanted to talk with your friends about. Which anime did you eagerly anticipate each week and which are you sad to see ending?

Choose up to three and have your say. The poll will close March 30 with results out (hopefully) on the 1st of April.

Vote For The Best Anime of The Winter 2019 Season

Meiji Tokyo Renka Episode 9

Here we are closing in on the end of a season. Okay, That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime already ended the actual story. That caught me off guard.

That means it is time for you to have your say on your favourite shows of the season.

It is a nice simple process. Just pick your three favourite shows from the season and vote below. Don’t see your favourite, write it in. And then, share the post so more people can have their say.

Given it went well last year, I’ll be taking the top three shows from this season and at the end of the year they will go head to head with the winners of each season’s poll to decide the anime of the year.

Now those of you wondering what happened to the worst of the season poll, I’ve decided not to run those in 2019. Most people tend to just drop shows they don’t like anyway. But, I’d still love it if you would share your pick for worst of the season and your reason in the comments or @ me on Twitter and if I get enough of these I can put together a round up of thoughts on the worst anime of the Winter 2019 season.

The Best of Spring 2017

Finally here, the Best of Spring 2017. Here I give my favourites for the season and the result of the Spring poll that I ran. This one is great because there were over 100 votes so there was actually some tight competition for best show of the season. I will point out I accidentally left Re:Creators off the poll so almost all of the write in votes were for Re:Creators. It might have even given the top contenders a run for their money if I’d remembered to include it on the poll. Sorry about that.

My Favourite Show

This one is really hard this season because there were so many shows I enjoyed. Realistically, I should give it to My Hero Academia, but it isn’t actually finished yet, so I am holding off on that. I would love to say KADO finished as my favourite but the ending just didn’t manage to hold things together and the disappointment from that is still leaving a sour taste in my mouth. With those two shows taken out of the running, that leaves Natsume Yuujinchou Roku as my favourite show this season.


As always, season 6 delivered a relaxing and fun viewing experience. While it isn’t going to revolutionise anything it does what it does very well and the consistency in its delivery is definitely the strong point for the season where so many other shows had brilliant moments but failed to consistently deliver their story.

My Favourite Character

For this one I am going to have to go to Yasaburo from The Eccentric Family. Okay, he’s basically an idiot and a fool, but he’s one who knows how to land on his feet and he’s genuinely entertaining to watch as he stirs up trouble and then has to find his way out of it. There’s just something a bit charming about him.


Realistically though, if I had to deal with Yasaburo in real life I would find him pretty tiresome, however I enjoy watching his adventures and his loyalty to his family is commendable.

My Favourite Story

Probably contentious but I am still going to put KADO as my favourite story. Admittedly, they didn’t land the ending or take it in any of the directions they might have to make it as good as early episodes kind of promised it could be, but I really liked the set up for this story even if it didn’t go where I wanted it to. The idea was great.


Basically I liked how this story made me think and consider the world and as a direct result it is the story that occupied my thoughts the majority of my time while watching the Spring season.

My Favourite Opening Theme

This one is a bit of a tie between The Laughing Salesman and KADO. Both have really great themes that are quite striking and thematically relevant to the show.


Basically, these are the two openings I would never skip because they are just fun to listen to and visually they are interesting to watch. If you haven’t seen them, definitely check them out.

My Favourite Visuals

There were quite a number of ‘pretty’ shows during the Spring season but probably the show that I consistently liked the look of (even as the characters and plot left me underwhelmed) was Grimoire of Zero.


This was such a pretty show to watch and while I can’t help but want better internet so I could watch in better quality, even with my connection it was a really nice looking show.

Reader’s Choice – Best Anime of Spring 2017

Here it is:

Best Spring 2017

My Hero Academia snuck in the win. This was actually incredibly tight and Tsuki ga Kirei was leading the run for a lot of the vote period. After the final episode of Attack on Titan, it had a bit of a run where it caught up to both Tsuki ga Kirei and My Hero Academia, but then My Hero Academia pulled ahead of the pack.


So that’s the list for Spring 2017. I’d love to know what your favourites were and why so please leave a comment below. Also, tomorrow I’ll have the Worst of Spring 2017 poll results to share so make sure you check out the post.

Finally, Spring 2017 is done and I am ready to move fully into Summer viewing.

Spring 2017 – Best and Worst Vote Reminder

Last week I asked what you thought the best and worst of the spring season was. If you haven’t cast your vote yet, or if you are still waiting on shows to finish, here’s the poll again. Please share it as the more votes the better for knowing what the readers are really thinking.


Poll Information (for those who missed it): This is the reader’s poll and the winning anime will be announced late in July (poll closes July 9 to give the last few shows that are ending a chance to wrap up). Yes this poll includes shows that are continuing onto the next season and sequels and pretty much everything else. For the first time I’ve also allowed you multiple choices and a write your own title because I can’t remember every show that came out nor do I really want to write all those options into the poll.

For best of Spring 2017, please vote on the show you found the most entertaining to watch or had the most fun with this season. If you want to share your reasons, please comment below.

For worst of Spring 2017, please vote for a show you watched (or watched at least half of) that you found tiresome, painful or boring to watch.

Thanks for your votes and please remember to share this post.

Vote For Your Favourite Anime of Winter 2017

Hey everyone, we’ve pretty much made it to the end of the Winter 2017 anime season. I’d love to know what your best of the season was (my only criteria for best is the show you found the most entertaining).

I decided this year that since I’ve actually started the blog at the beginning if I do best of each season, my end of year best of the year vote won’t need to have quite so many titles in it because I can narrow down the choices from these polls throughout the year. So please vote and let others know.

Thanks for your vote. I’ll release results probably next week.
