funny that you mention it, I was talking about anime with a coworker because another one was late for a meeting, and while wwe mentioned a few shounen properties as that is what he is mostly into, he sure got interested when we started talking about bleach so the conversation stayed there for a while.

Yeah, soon as I saw alphabetical, I lost interest.

What's the point of putting the list in alphabetical order?

Probably they want to keep the attention and generate discussions about how the top 20 is structured

You don't want to make the people you buy licenses from get mad at you for saying X is more popular than Y, do you? This makes them less likely to.

By my count, Isekai Cheat Magician was in the top 3 new IPs for Crunchyroll in the summer - and in a season without shonen hits like Dr Stone and Fire Force it might have actually topped the list. Also Slime and Shield made the list despite being off-season. This right here is why this generic isekai stuff keeps getting made, it sells.

Just a reminder that in the end, there's a huge dissonance between the "anime community" people who you'll interact with here and in other places, and the general, mostly silent, viewerbase.

Well, they already listed it in ranking order on the screencap, so maybe they didn't want to seem redundant.

alphabetical makes this entirely pointless. But it's understandable. A few of those CR has heavily invested in so showing them not so high up wouldn't be a good look, among other reasons

Isekai Cheat Magician... OH GOD NO!

I mean, I watched it too but I hope it doesn't stay on that list for the next seasons.
