After watching so much anime, most of us could probably predict what happens next, from the main character suddenly gaining new powers to Goku getting a new Super Saiyan form to Ash losing yet another Pokemon League Tournament. However, sometimes, there are those anime that we can’t seem to predict what’s gonna happen next, and that makes it all the more exciting.
Japanese rankings website, Goo, recently asked 500 anime fans (250 male, 250 female) to rank which anime they think is most unpredictable. The poll featured a total of 49 titles, and here are the Top 20:
20 – Fractale
14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19 (6-way tie) – Monogatari series, Akame Ga Kill!, Mawaru Penguindrum, From the New World, STEINS;GATE, and Nagi-Asu: A Lull in the Sea
12, 13 (tie) – Psycho-Pass and Angel Beats!
11/10 (tie) Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann
Tokyo Magnitude 8.0
7, 8, 9 (3-way tie) – Sunday Without God
Umineko When They Cry
Danganronpa The Stage
6 – Higurashi When They Cry
5 – Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion R2
4 – Puella Magi Madoka Magica
3 – your name.
2 – Attack on Titan
1 – Neon Genesis Evangelion
While the original ending wasn’t really loved by the fans, nobody saw that one coming, and that may be why the original Neon Genesis Evangelion took the #1 spot in Goo!’s poll. And while many have already predicted the identities of the Armored Titan and the Female Titan, Attack on Titan managed to beat out your name.’s unpredictable plot twist to take second place.
And yes folks, Goo really did list the stage play version of Danganronpa instead of the anime adaptation. Maybe the play was really more unpredictable, huh? you can check out the entire list through this link
