Best anime of the season, not the best of the year.

MADOKA IS THE BEST OF THE YEAR

Madoka will take it.


Steins;Gate will be a close second, but Madoka... that show will be archetypal years from now, unlike Fate/Zero. Besides that, Usagi Drop has much more going for it in way of animation and character development [even if the last two episodes tried way too hard]. Mirai Nikki is shaping up to be the Competition of Competitions. It serves up enough action and true character conflict with enough campy twang that you can't help but have a blast.

Fate/Zero? When it's over, I won't take anything from it. It's a good show, but even those who produced know it won't top Madoka or Steins;Gate. Whatever fans say.

Tiger & Bunny, Madoka, Ano Hana and Steins;Gate have all been the best so far. There's seems to be room for one more slot in the top 5 for something like Mawaru, Fate/Zero, Guilty Crown or Mirai Nikki.

Its my favorite series of the fall line up... but my vote for the year definitely goes to Steins;Gate.

Only a rabid Type-Moon fan would make a statement like this after less than a handful of episodes. Really, now.

1. Stein's; Gate
2/3 Madoka / Guilty Crown
4. Gosick
5. Fate Zero, Shakugan no Shana III, Nurarihyon no Mago II, Ao No Exorcist

Blue Exorcist, Steins;Gate, Usagi Drop, No.06,

I didnt watch Guilty Crown or Madoka, I have Gosick but havent watched it. Then there is also The World God Only Knows 2, Squid Girl 2, Astarote's Toy, Dead Man Wonderland, Yuru Yuri, Battle Girls Time Paradox, Blood-C...

There are a lot of shows out there, I do consider this years Summer Line up better than last years. But not by a lot....

Fate / Zero is a great show but with only a hand full of episodes we dont know if it'll just flop.

BTW, Yuru Yuri was great

I hope people are kidding when they say guilty crown.

And no, I don't think that its the best anime of the year, but probably the season. Its been very satisfying for me so far. Then again, there are some awesome ones this season like Chihayafuru and Hunter X Hunter. My opinion on best anime of the year would probably be Mawaru Penguin drum though with fate/zero coming in probably second because I just love it so much, but ofc it depends on whether it'll continue like so. I'm always looking forward to watch these two shows every week hah.

I don't think it's going to be anything spectacular aside from the fans of the original series. The Fate series seems to have a cult following(of which I count myself apart of) which is why it keeps getting more and more added to it be it games or movies or what have you. But I don't think it's anywhere near anime of the year. Even if I would like it to be so.

AOTY? Not likely, nothing will come close to the level of success Madoka had, fairly sure it is the best selling anime of all time. Best I'd definitely say F/0 is a strong contender for anime of the season. And people who said Guilty Crown or any other generic shounen, I seriously hope you are kidding...

Personally I'd vote S;G for AOTY, but Madoka is probably going to take it because Jap otakus eat up anything Shinbo makes...and opinion of people outside of Japan doesn't matter when it comes to anime awards...

Oh let's not forget about winter season (I'm not sure if it counts towards 2011 or 2012 though), strong winter contenders will include Nisemonogatari and BRS.

The Winter season is equivalent to Q1 so if your talking about shows that haven't been aired then its Q1 2012 so it won't count.

In terms of best (debuting) anime of the year, Usagi Drop is my personal favorite, far and beyond anything else I've seen this year. I only see new anime on crunchyroll so I'm missing some other ones but any anime series in which the protagonist is an adult (rather than adolecents which is in 90% of anime and little kids which is for another 9%) will always be a big plus with me.

In terms of Q4 2011, Fate Zero would not be my favorite. I've never seen Fate/Night, but this prequel seems decent, but far from amazing. Hunter X Hunter is probably my favorite for this season (of course this series is almost certainly going to last way beyond this season).

For anime that debuts and will end this season, its too early to tell for me. Nothing besides Hunter X Hunter has wowed me big time.

I'm surprised how many people are saying Madoka... I rated that a 7.7 because there was so many flaws in the animation. Fate/Zero is looking very promising, however, I think it's unfair to judge if it is good or bad before it's even finished.

Currently Steins;Gate is sitting at my #1 this season which ended with a 8.8 from me which is realllly hard to get above since anything around 9 I start getting very nit picky about.

I think possible animes to get on that level though would be definitely Fate/Zero, Guilty Crown, and depending on how other animes such as future diary/Persona 4 develop they could end up with a pretty decent rating as well.
