The series of the Winter 2017 season finally came to an end, and that’s why our friends from Anime! Anime! asked their readers, ‘Which was the best Winter 2017 Anime?’
Readers could vote for one of the 50 series on the list between 5-9 April 2017. 2028 people voted, of which 60% were male. Most voters were young, with 40% in their teens and 30% in their twenties.
First Place to Kemono Friends!
In first place is Kemono Friends, which took the lead with over 100 votes compared to second place. Male voters especially were fond of it, ranking it 1st place while it only ranked 9th in the female voting. The anime was talked about a lot on social media, but it seems it was popular with viewers as well.
Ranking second is Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid, an anime by Kyoto Animation. In the male ranking it was in 3rd place, in the female ranking it came in 6th place.
Shortly behind with only 5 votes difference is KonoSuba: God’s Blessing on this Wonderful World! 2. The first season was aired exactly one year earlier, during the Winter 2016 season. It was 2nd in the boys’ vote and 11th on the girls’.
This winter many sequels aired, but the final results have both new anime and continuations. Half of the series are based on manga, but the series based on light novels are ranked better, in 3rd and 4th place. The only original anime in the list is Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans.
