The Best and Worst Anime of Winter 2018 – Have Your Say


It’s that time of the anime season again. From now until the 31st of March you can vote for your favourite, and least favourite, anime of the season.

You can choose up to three series in both the best of and worst of the season polls.

Remember, the three best shows (as voted by the readers) from each season will be used at the end of the year in the vote for best of the year (just so I don’t have to try to list every single anime in the final poll).

Here’s your chance to vote for the Best Anime of Winter 2018!

Remember, this is not for technical best animation or any other objective measure. It is just the show (or shows) you liked the most and had the most fun watching this season. So choose up to three and vote away and then remember to share.

Now for the Worst Anime of Winter 2018!

In case you are new to one of these polls, I ask that you don’t just vote for something because you hated episode 1. This is the worst show you actually sat through and watched this season. The bottom of your watch list. So the show that wins won’t be the actual worst show, it will be a show good enough to string you along, but not actually ever good to watch.

So far 155 votes is the best count for one of these polls and that was the Best of 2017. I’d love to get a larger sample size so that these polls become more reflective of the community even though I know not all of my readers are watching currently streaming anime. Please vote and then share this post. The more the merrier.

Thanks for reading.

  1. Ahh I can’t pick a show for worst because I didn’t watch anything I really disliked at all this season. Good thing we could pick multiple ones for best 🙂

    1. I just checked the results again and it is so incredibly close for first and second. I’ll announce the winners early next week.

  2. This was an interesting season to be sure, with a few very good shows scattered in an ocean of mediocrity. Definitely made the selection and decision of what to watch interesting, though!

  3. Looks a bit like this season was a bit weaker than the last. To be fair there were a lot that I didn’t watch but may try later, not a lot grabbed my interest.

    1. I think this season really worked for some people because there were a lot of shows that grabbed their interest. For others, it was a little drier. In fairness, a lot of the shows people have been really enjoying are ones that don’t really fit my usual preferred genres so for me this season didn’t end up as strong as previous ones. That said, I still found quite a lot to watch and have enjoyed most of it even if it ended up not being very good.

      1. Yeah, I normally wouldn’t watch so many “cute” anime but the mummy and boys one was okay. They were more like passing the time rather than “OMG this is awesome!” haha

        1. How To Keep a Mummy… Sorry, I drifted into a cute coma. I’ve had fun watching them but agree that I’m hardly going to declare them amazing or must watch shows. Well maybe How to Keep a Mummy is a must watch just so people can see how cute you can make a mummy. Particularly when it barks.
          Sorry, I’m never getting over the sight of Mii barking.
