Japanese Viewers List This Summer's Most Popular Anime

It's so hot! There's a good way to pass the time: Watch anime. And recently, male and female anime viewers were polled over their favourite shows of the season.

As Zaikei reports, download music site Recochoku polled 578 people between July 25 and August 5, asking them to name which anime of the summer they liked. Out of those polled, 64.8 per cent were women and 35.2 per cent were men. So, yes, it's not an exact 50-50 split, so take that into account (and as well as with any poll, the results may vary).

Let's have a look:

10. Barakamon

9. Akame ga KILL!

8. Aldnoah.Zero

7. Terror in Resonance

6. Tokyo Ghoul

5. Blue Spring Ride

4. Kuroshitsuji: Book of Circus

3. Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun

2. Sword Art Online II

1. Free! Eternal Summer

    I have never had any interest in volleyball yet I find Haikyuu!! one of the better series this season.

      Haikyuu is last season :)

      It's amazing to think that free started out as a 30 second advert that has now blown up into an industry phenomenon.

    A swimming anime is number 1?

    Ahahahaha, Japan, you so funny.

    I'm actually really enjoying Mahouka though it probably counts as last season. Also starting to get into Tokyo ESP.

    SAOII above Aldnoah.Zero? Brb digging a hole in the garden and shoving my head into it.
