This is indeed yet another list of spring 2012′s top 10 most anticipated anime as the otaku are seemingly indecisive this season – Saki has been toppled and now at number one is a feminine series of singing and fighting.
As a few series of spring have already made their debut, this second ranking of 10 arrives – clearly however, there is some sort of biased force acting in the background, block voting perhaps, which is ranking the wrong series in the top spot. Saki was formerly at number one, and while certainly far from being the most deserving, it is understandable how it could rank so high due to its devout manga following and respectable first season – yet for something such as “AKB0048″ to be at number one, this is merely amusing.
Feel free to ridicule the ranking below:
AKB0048 is a petty marketing tact which features characters from a similarly named idol group “AKB48″ under the context of singing and fighting whilst in space – the concept of the anime is an utter garbage combination which simply have nothing to do with each other whatsoever. This anime is essentially a watered down corporate labelled version of Macross Frontier.
Now underneath that entry of nonsense is Fate/Zero’s second coming – ranking as high as anticipated, or at least it would have if it were number one. Notice how at number three, another sure to be spectacular series does follow, Kyoto Animation’s Hyouka – and at number four, once more a title which while not amazing, has a spot sensible considering its background. All the remaining entries on the list are reasonable as well as they’ve either put up a strong pre-release showing, or have an existing fanbase from other mediums.
If one is to simply eradicate “AKB0048″ from this list, then it actually becomes much more agreeable.
