TV Asahi has published a list of Japan's favorite TV anime (And a list of 100 Favorite Anime selected by Celebrities)
TV Asahi has again published a list of Japan's 100 favorite animated TV series. The list is based on an online poll of the Japanese populace. During Monday's Variety Programming, TV Asahi also presented a list based on a survey of 100 Japanese celebrities. Last Year's lists can be seen here.
Tom and Jerry and Wacky Races are the only non-Japanese animation to make the celebrity list, no non-Japanese animation made the general list.
This list follows closely on the heels of another list, recently published by the Japan Media Arts Festival, of the top 10 anime of all time.
TV Asahi's list from the online poll is as follows:
The story underneath is a universal one, powerful and expertly told. Viewers should be prepared for a devastating experience with a lot of challenging concepts that pile on hard and fast as the finale approaches.
Tech-based magical girls battle aliens in a heavily-derivative, otaku-pandering series that is definitely not aimed at little girls. It avoids mediocrity due an outstanding musical score and never forgetting that it is supposed to be fun.
Higurashi: When They Cry is still an intriguing, spine-chilling, gut-churning horror/mystery hybrid that has nicely recovered from the prologue feel of the previous volume. It can be an intimidating series to pick up, but it looks as if those who stuck by it are about to be amply rewarded
