Top 10 Spring 2010 Anime according to Dengeki

Angel Beats

Dengeki readers as usual were surveyed about which anime they enjoyed the best the past season and what anime they’re anticipating the most in the next, that is Summer season. K-ON!! didn’t retain the top position that it claimed as the most anticipated anime of Spring 2010 and was defeated by Angel Beats! in the post-season ranking. It only shows how the audience appreciates the combination of random fun and an actual plot.

The rankings: (numbers in brackets show the ranks in Spring anime anticipation ranking)

1. Angel Beats! (2) – I can go along with this. Angel Beats! was my favorite Spring anime.

2. K-ON!! (1) – The first episodes were excellent but then it got a bit stale. But still, I enjoy it.

3. Working!! (3) – Very funny with good seiyuu cast.

4. Ookiku Furikabutte (6)

5. Durarara!! (-) – Haven’t finished it yet.

6. Arakawa Under The Bridge (4)

7. The Tatami Galaxy (18)

8. Ichiban Ushiro no Dai-Maoh (17)

9. Mayoineko Overrun (5) – I have seen 10 eps so far. It’s quite a fun watch but that’s all there is to it. I hear that each episode has its own director so it doesn’t have much of development, nor a plot. And even though I said it’s fun, it’s far below the level of Hayate no Gotoku, for example.

10. Kaicho wa Meido-sama (20)

Summer 2010 anime expectations:

1. Strike Witches 2 – Going to watch this ^^

2. Ookami-san to Shichinin no Nakama-tachi – I think I will watch it.

3. Sengoku Basara 2

4. Nurarihyon no Mago

5. Amagami SS

6. Digimon Xros Wars

7. Sekirei Pure Engagement

8. Kutoshitsuji II

9. Seitokai Yakuin-domo – I will watch the first episode and see if I will watch this or not.

10. Shiki – I’m looking forward to this very much.

11. Mitsudomoe

12. Legend of the Legendary Heroes

13. Highschool of the Dead – It only ranks at the 13th place. That shows who are the majority of readers of Dengeki

14. Asobi ni Ikuyo! – I’ve been thinking about giving it a try.

15. Seikimatsu Occult Gakuin

16. Shukufuku no Campanella
