Hello, MANGA.TOKYO otaku readers!
During our previous poll, you told us your most anticipated titles for Summer 2017 and we created a Top 15 list out of your answers. Now that the season is already underway, we have started populating our Anime Preview Guide. Our writers are very busy watching all the new anime of this season so you don’t have to. Your anime time is precious and don’t need to spend it on titles you are not really interested in. We have already added 20 titles and we plan to have all new anime included by the end of the month!
In our most recent poll, however, we asked for your first impressions. Our summer otaku poll ended on 20 July and we had more than 600 responses! You are amazing and we can’t possibly express how important you are to MANGA.TOKYO. Yet, if you want us to, you can join our forum! Come and find us there and let’s talk about all our favorite anime.
It’s time to see the results of your voting. After almost three episodes, which are the Top 10 Most Recommended Anime for Summer 2017 according to you? Let’s find out!
MT Readers’ Top 10 Most Recommended Anime for Summer 2017
Readers could choose just one anime to recommend. These are the 10 anime titles with the most votes! Instead of some boring descriptions, we have decided to include your own comments from the poll. We hope you don’t mind! ^^
If you need more info, you can click on the vote bar to visit the anime’s corresponding MANGA.TOKYO Anime Info Page. We have included a link to our own anime impressions and an additional link to the Episode 1 review if the anime is part of our Summer 2017 episodic lineup!

10. Hajimete no Gal
‘Hajimete no Gal is a good manga that is both romantic and comedic and many males like me can relate to the protagonist.’

9. Clean Freak! Aoyama-kun
‘The main character is a clean freak but gets really passionate about soccer/football even if he gets dirty. It shows how he really loves the sport.’
‘It has very good comedy, a slice of life aspect, and the graphics are clear, nice, and cute. Not to mention the story is interesting and it’s relaxing to watch.’

8. Knight’s & Magic
‘Mecha and Magic: the best combination’
‘Many people think that robots can’t go with magic but this anime goes against that thought.’

‘I recently got into sport related anime (Free got me into this), I loved it so much that I hoped for something similar to it. It seems that my prayers have been answered! :3’
‘Sport anime normally inspire me to do stuff as the characters are striving their best to achieve their dreams. No matter what result it is, whether it is negative or positive, they still move on and thus the anime progress. (I watch it for the muscles too!) And if I had recommended Dive to my friends, I hope it would inspire them to achieve their aspirations no matter what situation they were in.’
6. Tsure x Dure Children
‘Almost all of us can relate or have seen this kind of story in real life. This rom-com anime is definitely worth your time. I’ve read the manga and its funny and sweet ❤’
‘I chose Tsure x dure Children to recommend to a friend because of the story and character development, Some of the couples are what current teens do. They are ‘so-called’ dating and some of them have just found out what it means to love, while some of them are really not sure what love is. I’ve already read the manga and I guarantee that not just my friends but other Otaku out there that haven’t watched the anime yet will like it~’

5. Welcome to the Ballroom
‘It honestly has one of the best plot and characters development similar to Haikyuu!! Which is a personal favorite. From reading the manga I fell in love with ballroom dancing which I had no prior knowledge of. And since it’s done by Production I.G. I expect great things from them, since they’re a studio we can count on to stay true to the manga and deliver to us the greatness of Welcome to the Ballroom.’
‘I can relate to the main character, who had no plans for the future and didn’t have anything he could say he loved. He becomes inspired by dancers that were teaching others how to dance. It seems like a great show that I’ll be following. (Also, Nobuhiko Okamoto is in there!)’

4. Love and Lies
‘Very modern and relatable for both genders. While the story is mainly from the perspective of a guy, it involves views and concerns from both sides. The plot itself may not be experienced by everyone, but I’m sure it’s something everyone has wondered at some point. Thoughts like ‘am I doing it right’, ‘what’s important to me’ or the like.’
‘I really love the story and it really captured me. Love is very forbidden in their world and someone will be assigned to you as a marriage partner. It’s sad that you won’t be marrying the one you love but I know that love will prevail for them because it is a powerful thing’

3. Aho Girl
‘I chose Aho Girl because the theme and the behavior of the students totally fits these summer months. While the story was all about a girl crazy over a banana, what impresses me about Aho Girl is the other characters who never give up helping her so that she can be more… lets just say, normal and sane. Anyway, my reason is simple. Aho Girl is really suited for summer and hey, people are melting out there so why why not brighten their day with this idiot girl’s story?’

‘I love the feeling of anxiety and suspense you get when gambling. It is done amazingly well and all the characters are cute too.’
‘It’s No Game, No Life without the blatant power fantasy and with characters that are so twisted they are a true joy to watch. No more generic Hikki-NEET or bland blank slate MCs, Yumeko mops the floor with all of them.’
— TVアニメ「賭ケグルイ」公式 (@kakegurui_anime) May 22, 2017
‘So far, it looks good and seems very interesting and very promising. I have high expectations since it is from the Fate series.’
‘I chose Fate/Apocrypha because I feel that the earlier Fate shows, especially Fate/Zero, were very interesting as well as fascinating. The intense plot and action made the entire Fate series really worth investing my time. So I am looking forward to how Fate/Apocrypha will turn out.’
