Fall 2017 Anime Popularity Ranked in Japan

fall animeEveryone has their own thoughts on what the best anime of the season are so far, but how are things shaking out in Japan? Mobile phone company NTT Docomo followed up an earlier anticipation ranking with the results of the “What are you watching this season?” poll, which shows which fall anime series are currently most popular.

The survey was conducted from October 27 to November 3, and it pulled in a total of 102,491 valid votes. The only catch: Users were just able to vote on titles available on the service. Still, it’s a pretty hefty list of currently-running shows.

Here’s the top 3, followed by the rest of the rankings:
