During the period between January 24 and 29, Anime!Anime! conducted a survey on the most exciting robot and mecha anime that gets fans all pumped up.
The survey was conducted in two categories divided into Robot Anime and the Gundam Series. This time, Anime!Anime! made an announcement on the result of the Gundam Series category. The survey targeted over 20 series and was conducted on a single-vote basis with the nominations made by Twitter followers.
Anime!Anime! received votes from a total of 941 people and the ratio of male to female turned out to be 60(male):40(female). Each of the age groups resulted in 20% (10’s), 40% (20’s), 20% (30’s) and 20%(40’s).
Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans Wins First Place
The most blood-pumping Gundam series turned out to be Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans, whose second season begun airing in October 2016.
Currently, the story is rapidly gearing up for its climax and each episode always becomes a super hot topic to discuss on social media. Although the anime gained the most votes from both male and female fans, it is interesting to find out that it accounted for 20% of the total female voters.
The second series was Mobile Suit Gundam SEED. The series was first broadcast back in 2002 and the sequel Mobile Suit Gundam SEED DESTINY was broadcast in 2004. It ranked second among female voters and sixth among male voters.
The third series turned out to be Mobile Suit Gundam 00 which ranked first in the last year’s survey. The gap between the Gundam Seed series was only 4 votes. It ranked third among both male and female voters, showing its pretty stable popularity regardless of gender differences.
Seeing the results from the survey, series that were made after the year 2000 dominate the top three.
As for other series after 2000, Mobile Suit Gundam UC ranked sixth and Mobile Suit Gundam SEED DESTINY ranked eighth.
This time, the most votes came from fans in their 20’s and many of the series that this generation was watching in real-time have entered the list.
