Everbody are already heading to the midway point of a jam-packed Fall 2014 anime season,The poll not only included the new anime introduced last October like Fate/ Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works (2014), but it also included anime which have continued on this season such as Sword Art Online II. Voters, which are aged 15 – 45 years old, both male and female, were allowed to vote on multiple series and not just one, unlike most online polls. Here are the results:
10) Girlfriend (Beta): 16.3% of the votes
9) Sailor Moon Crystal: 16.6% of the votes
8) Parasyte :17.2% of the votes
7) Sword Art Online II: 17.8% of the votes
6) Terra Formars: 18.4% of the votes
5) Yowamushi Pedal GRANDE ROAD: 18.7% of the votes
4) Magic Kaito 1412: 19.3% of the votes
3) Fate/ Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works (2014): 20.5% of the votes
2) Gundam Reconguista in G: 22.6% of the votes
1) The Seven Deadly Sins: 23.8% of the votes
In a rare showing, Sword Art Online II has failed to even reach the Top 5, let alone the #1 spot, which it usually claims in these online anime polls from Japan. The Top Spot instead went to newcomer The Seven Deadly Sins, which came into the Fall 2014 season with a whole lot of hype. It seems that its interesting actions and perverted main character was more than enough to dethrone the almighty SAO II.
Three other new series, Magic Kaito 1412, Yowamushi Pedal Grande Road, and Terra Formars, have also upset Sword Art Online II, which only took a very surprising 7th place. Well, you really can’t win them all, huh?
