Okay, after the last Winter Poll I thought something was wrong here, as appearently whenever smaller groups of people vote on ‘what’s best’ some kind of unpredictable shit comes out. So to make it more… Objective, I made a list by comparing series on myanimelist.net site, where thousands of people from all over the world rate on it.
So look at this:
Have in mind that even though Nodame Cantabile is on the very top, only 1200+ people rated it, so when we look at Durarara!! which is VERY close to it and has 4 times that amount of people rated on it, we can be pretty much sure that its rating is more reliable. I didn’t do such calculations though.
It was quite obvious that Durarara!! is the mostly watched serie, with Baccano! on its back and all, I thought Katanagatari would be higher though.. But I guess everyone fell in Dance in the Vampire Bund crap (It has ‘vampire’ in it after all) before watching it.
Anyway, what do you think? I didn’t watch Nodame Cantabile so I can say that 2nd, 3rd and 4th deserve these spots, the rest… Well.. That’s choosing between worse and worst. So yeah, MAL fulfilled my expectations, well done people!
