Docomo’s d-Anime Store—the largest anime streaming platform in Japan—put together a poll for its users to ask them one question: What spring anime are you watching?

The poll collected a total of 61,040 votes from April 28 to May 8. The only anime titles that were counted were ones streaming on d-Anime Store, so that means the anime not on the service—i.e., KADO: The Right Answer, Atom the Beginning, Re:CREATORS, and My Hero Academia—were not on the ballot. Here’s a look at the poll by category:

  1. Looks like Eromanga sensei is for all ages. I watch it after the mha and aot to relax. Another thing to note is that it’s animated really well.

  2. WHERE THE HELL IS MY HERO ACADEMIA?! WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH THESE PEOPLE! THEY ARE MISSING OUT ON ONE OF THE GREATEST SHOUNEN ANIME RIGHT NOW! Disappointing list.

    • Chill, man. It’s explained right up there. Some shows weren’t in the ballot.

      Why would you leave a comment without reading the article.

  3. Guess this proves that incest is wincest.
