And this is why I don't have any respect for, or place any value on, the results of awards based on fan balloting: because typically people vote based on what's their favorite rather than what's actually good.

K-ON!! as the best of that time period? Really? Rolling Eyes

Why of course Key. Do you not understand that cute girls doing cute things while living their boring uneventful lives is the single greatest thing ever in the history of mankind?

And here I thought it was badass chicks and mecha.

*sighs* I weep for the lack of taste some people have. Sure, K-ON!! is cute. But being number #1 for Best Anime?

What an odd thing to read by someone who hosts the "Best of" competitions on this forum.

I concur with the votes, but only because my tastes in anime seem to be completely different from those who feel this industry need only be filled with Ghost in the Shell.

*looks at lists

Mmmm.... Kuroneko. She's definitely a cutie.

Don't see why any of you are so suprised, really. We all know that a load of japanese fans have a massive hard-on for moe, and K-ON! is apparently about as moe as it gets, so this was to be expected. Rolling Eyes

But, yeah. The list is shit.

The top selling anime list didn't say otherwise for the first 5 or so.

well, third "best" female character.

Nothing to get too upset over. It's pop culture. At least K-on!! was a decent show...

now excuse me, my aunt is on facebook, asking me who I think should win on Survivor and American Idol and wondering who I think will die on the season finale of Hawaii 5-O. Rolling Eyes

So this is more than just fan balloting. There may be some question as to whether the professionals were judging by artistic or by financial criteria.
