Everybody is waiting for the new season to start in April. Japanese site Anime!Anime! took some time to ask their users ‘What Spring 2017 anime will you watch?’ They listed all 50 anime titles coming up this season and the users could choose as many series as they liked.
Between 7-12 March 2017, 1396 people answered the questionnaire. There was a similar number of female and male voters, with every so slightly more female voters. The majority of the participants were in their teens (40%) or 20s (30%).
■ Voted first place with more than 50% of votes: ‘Attack on Titan’
First place went to Attack on Titan Season 2 (Shingeki no Kyojin 2), with more than 50% of the votes. It had 100 votes more than the series that came in second place. Separating the results into male and female voters, the series ranked 3rd with males and 1st with females. It has been 4 years since the first season aired, so fans are excited about the return of the series.
Second place went to Natsume Yujincho Roku (Natsume’s Book of Friends: Roku). The 6th season of the anime is supported by the long-time fans of the series. It ranked 2nd with girls and 9th with boys, gaining more support from the female voters.
Third place went to My Hero Academia Season 2 (Boku no Hero Academia Season 2). It is the continuation of the first season, which aired in Spring 2016. It ranked 3rd with the female respondents and 7th with the male.
The opinion of the female voters was strongly mirrored in the final ranking. Half of the series in the ranking are sequels, like Attack on Titan. The highest-ranking new series is Sword Oratoria on 6th place.
