Vote for your favorite in ANN's poll!

A poll has been conducted among Nico Nico Douga users of their favorite/most-anticipated anime of the winter 2015 season, and the results are interesting. The top three choices for best anime of the winter — Shirobako, Your Lie in April, and Parasyte -the maxim- — are all continuing series from October. That's kinda cheating, isn't it?

  2. Saekano: How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend
  3. Aldnoah.Zero

  5. KanColle
  6. Yatterman Night
  7. Death Parade
  8. Tokyo Ghoul √A

Yona of the Dawn and (to a lesser extent) Garo: Honoo no Kokuin and Gundam Reconguista in G were other anime that appeared on the "favorite" lists but were absent from the "most anticipated" list. Meanwhile, Sengoku Musou performed consistently poorly, ranking at the bottom of the first two lists and second-to-last on the final list. Shōnen Hollywood - Holly Stage for 50 also ranked low.

For comparison, ANN Reader's Most Anticipated Winter 2015 List was:

  1. Durarara!!×2 Shō
  2. Assassination Classroom
  3. Tokyo Ghoul √A
  4. Aldnoah.Zero 2
  5. JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders Egypt Arc
  6. Kuroko's Basketball S3
  7. Yuri Kuma Arashi
  8. Kamisama Hajimemashita 2
  9. Tsukimonogatari
  10. Death Parade

Now that the season has wrapped, what would you say was the best show of Winter 2015? Vote in the poll! However, we didn't include ongoing series from Fall 2014 — we'll consider those the best of their premiering season.
