ANN Readers: Welcome to the Ballroom Is Most Anticipated Summer 2017 Anime

posted on by Lynzee Loveridge

Japanese readers at Charapedia and Kadokawa's eb-i Xpress weighed in on which summer anime series they are looking forward to this year. Those websites' users chose the second season of NEW GAME! and Jigoku Shōjo: Yoi no Togi, but Anime News Network readers eschewed both in favor of Welcome to the Ballroom. The adaptation of Tomo Takeuchi's competitive dancing manga follows feckless high school student Tatara Fujita discovering his talent after encountering a professional ballroom dancer.

Coming in second is Fate/Apocrypha, an alternate timeline story in the Fate/Stay night franchise, followed by Owarimonogatari which was recently revealed to be a two-part special. Both those series ranked ranked in the top three on Charapedia, but Fate/Apocrypha came in fifth on the eb-i Xpress poll. Here's Anime News Network's full results:
