I'm sad that Centaur's Life didn't crack the top ten. That being said I watched 8 out of 10 of these shows and I did enjoy every episode of Aho Girl. So I approve of your summer poll

For pure "enjoyability", Princess Principal is the clear and easy winner for me, with Tsuredure Children a strong second place.

Aho Girl's one of those shows that has some amusing clips and screenshots, but i don't think i'd enjoy the whole show. I admire the seiyu for the lead character though; she gave her all for that performance

So when do we get to vote for what shows we want them to cover for fall?

People didn’t enjoy Made in Abyss? It was hard to watch at moments, but certainly enjoyable most of the time.

Made in Abyss was GOOD, but idk about enjoying it all the time, lol. If it was a list of pure quality, it would probably be at the top.

The lack of mahoujin guru guru always amazes me, so many people don't even know that show is airing and is really enjoyable.

I couldn't even get through the first episode of Aho Girl. Different tastes and all that. To me it just seemed it was going to be "stupid person doing stupid things" which is never appealing to me.

I'd probably say New Game!! was the most enjoyable for me this season, followed by Sakura Quest (continuing from last season). Princess Principal was fun, but it didn't hook me the way it did many other people (still have the last few episodes to watch ...).

Hitorijime my Hero was easily the one I had the most fun watching. Kensuke and Masahiro just made my day every time. They are best boys. Tears of joy were shed.

And yea I agree with Knight's and Magic being on that list. Ernesti's passion was very infectious and cute.

Mine was netsuzou trap. Saiyuki was going to be first until I saw that they glossed over the most important meeting in the series and only showing a still shot of the meeting.

Top 3 for me in terms of pure enjoyment were Made in Abyss, Princess Principal, and Magical Circle Guru-Guru. I personally find it unfortunate that the list in this article doesn’t contain MiA anywhere in the top ten. I hope there are more people in Japan that are at least aware of Made in Abyss than this list may imply.

I think it's pretty clear that the poll was for "light hearted Fun Times/gags/comedy" anime. In which case things seem pretty obvious.

Aho-girl was just stupid fun and though certainly not worthy of being on anybody's Top 5 anime of the year, it might be the one you want to throw on for a few laughs or have running casually while you go about doing something else.

Funny, that's how I pictured New Game to be. "Stupid girls doing stupid things".

Centaur Worries really overly emphasized the stranger parts of the series quick in the anime. It's production was not there to deliver it.
