6/5 tie) Absolute Duo


4) JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Egypt-hen


3) Assassination Classroom


2) Aldnoah.Zero Season 2


1) Kantai Collection

As said in the title, it seems that the usual suspects, Kantai Collection, Aldnoah.Zero, Assassination Classroom,  Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure, and Tokyo Ghoul have managed to get into a Top 5, however, Absolute Duo manages to get a bit of an upset by tying Tokyo Ghoul for 5th place.

Kantai Collection has been quite the juggernaut and it winning the Famitsu poll comes to no surprise at all. Meanwhile, #2 ranked Aldnoah.Zero’s wonderful twists and turns have made it one of this season’s very best and most popular and #3 ranked Assassination Classroom has proven that its hype is indeed real.

However, not all of this season’s “usual suspects” have made it to the Top 5, and they are The iDOLM@STER: Cinderella Girls, which despite its huge ratings and fanfare, has only gotten #9. Kuroko’s Basketball did not even make it to the Top 10 as it only placed 15th, and fellow “usual suspect” Durarara!! failed to make it to the Top 10 as it only took 11th place. I guess that huge male-female voter ratio difference proved to be the downfall for both series in this poll.
