It’s already December, and not only is 2015 about to end, but so will the current crop of anime for the Fall 2015 season, which also brings us to the upcoming new anime of the Winter 2016 season, which will begin airing this January.
For this week’s poll by the Japanese anime database, Charapedia, they have asked 10,000 anime fans (47.4% male, 52.6% female) on which upcoming Winter 2016 anime are they excited to watch the most. Of the 36 entries in the poll, Charapedia only announced the Top 20, and here they are:
20) Oshiete! Galko-chan
19) Active Raid: Kidou Kyoushuushitsu Dai-Hakkei
18) Sekkou Boys
17) Norn9: Norn + Nonette
16) Myriad Colors Phantom World
15) Prince of Stride Alternative
14) Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku o!
13) Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu
12) Divine Gate
10) Fairy Tail Zero
9) Ouya-san wa Shishunki
8) Nijiro Days
7) Dagashi Kashi
6) Boku dake ga Inai Machi
5) Ajin: Demi-human
4) Snow White with the Red Hair season 2
3) Durarara!!×2 Ketsu
2) GATE season 2
1) Assassination Classroom season 2
As expected, returnees such as Snow White with Red Hair, Durarara!!, GATE, and Assassination Classroom have taken the Top 4 of these rankings, all of which are returning for a new season this January.
Meanwhile, supernatural anime, Ajin, takes the #5 spot as the most anticipated new title, the highest among non-returnee anime, followed by upcoming romance anime, Boku dake ga Inai Machi, and then by the highly anticipated Dagashi Kashi, which failed to make the Top 5.
