  1. I don’t have any problem with a single “Best Anime Ever” poll like this. Indeed, I find it quite fun and realise that it is, in essence, pretty much just a popularity poll as you mentioned before. I will still gladly cast my opinion into the ring.

    However, I do think that in the future, subdividing the topic might be interesting. For instance having a “Best Drama Ever”, “Best SciFi Ever”, “Best Comedy Ever”, etc poll could be interesting. Of course, from a personal standpoint, more specific polls are more interesting because I may learn of shows I’ve never heard of before from them. All of the choices given above are so high profile that even though I haven’t seen most of them (I’m pretty new to anime in general), I still instantly recognise and and am familiar with each one.

    I’m sure you’ve considered something like this, and you probably have reasons for not trying to do something similar. Just my two cents.

    1. Hey AnW – thanks for reading and participating! The point of this is less about “Best Anime Ever” and more to simulate March Madness by asking the readers of the blog what shows they like the most. This keeps the list to just 32 shows to start as opposed to having poll after poll after poll by subdividing and making different brackets for the different for the different subdivisions.
