It's time to say goodbye to fall 2016's slate of anime. Was it a good harvest?

Hello everyone!! Today we’ll be releasing the results of our recent FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST POLL!

Millennials, now it's your turn. After their 90s polls, Charapedia did a pair for the next decade, running 10,000 Reader surveys asking fans to name their favorite anime theme song from the 00s by a male singer and favorite anime theme song from the 00s by a female singer.

Looking back two decades or more, Japanese site Charapedia has asked fans to name their favorite anime themes (opening or ending) of the 1990's in a pair of 10,000 Reader Polls, split up by gender of the anison singer. The pool of voters was 61.6% male in the female singer survey and 68.3% male in the male singer survey. Check out the results after the jump.
After Bubblegum Crisis, Masaki Kajishima and Hiroki Hayashi played with the trend of having a cast largely comprised of one gender, plus a representative of the other. That sci-fi comedy sounds simple and fun enough, but they wound up contributing to popularizing the harem genre and developing a singularly powerful character intermarried with the ruling bodies of the universe through a convoluted mythos. And, that's unforgivable.
How many anime series do you watch per season? Really watch. Not just sample. College student-centric site Gakumado asked its readers how many anime series they follow during the course of a cour/quarterly cycle. Get the figures after the jump.
Here's a somewhat fraught subject.

Generally fans and critics prefer the original to the adaptation. The book is better than the movie. The manga is between than the anime. The anime is better than the movie. However, sometimes, at least arguably, that isn't the case. Japanese ranking site Goo has done one of their polls, asking fans to name a series where the anime adaptation improved on the original manga.
Last week, nearly 20,000 fine Crunchyroll users from more than 100 countries participated in our first-ever Re:ZERO -starting life in another world- CHARACTER POLL!!
To riff on the One-Punch Man theme, Charapedia was looking for the saikyo mecha hero (or anti-hero, or antagonist in a few cases) in their latest 10,000 Reader poll, asking fans to name anime's mightiest robot pilot. 45 characters were suggested by a pool of voters that was 74.8% male. Because that was so one-sided, unlike many polls, they didn't offer a break down of top selections by voter. See who they picked after the jump.
