[Poll] Top 5 for October 2010

Alright guys, that's all the new animes for October 2010 season. Surprising, the season I thought is going to be a big bust turns out to have quite a few decent animes, including a "A" grade initial impression series, which is actually quite rare if you have been following my blog long enough. There are a couple of them missing from my review, namely, Hakuouki: Hekketsu-roku. I'm not going to bother to review because I've dropped the season one half way through due to it being too "dry" in content. There would be no point to watch any of this season since it's just a continuation from season one.

So, before I put up the poll to let the unreliable masses (I've totally lost faith in the masses after High School of the Dead has been voted in for last season's top anime) to collectively decide what are the top 5 anime of the month .

So my top 5 for October 2010 new anime season are:
  1. Otome Youkai Zakuro
  2. Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai
  3. Bakuman
  4. Iron Man
  5. [Edit 10/18/10]Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai Kuragehime

Otome Youkai Zakuro
in my opinion is the undisputed best anime of this season. It's just very well made in all aspects, period.

No. 2 and 3, I don't think too many people would disagree with me about having them in top 5.

No. 4, Iron Man,
could be just a shock factor that it had turned out to be a much better anime than I was expecting.

[Edit 10/18/10]
And No. 5, Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai, I'm really not thinking too highly of it at the moment, but I do think it has potential to become something much better as the season progresses.

At this moment, Kuragehime definitely tops Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai for the last spot in my top 5 anime of October 2010.

Tough this season... a lot of decent/solid series I think. Zakuro is probably the best so far.

You're also missing Kuragehime on your poll.

ooops, missed that late comer...oh well, I can't changed the poll once people already voted on it. I'll just...let it slide this time...

I'm not sure why all of your polls have only been 100 votes, but if you don't trust the masses, increase the sample size and you will get a much better result in the end.

bigger sample size...right...I'll try to make more people read my blog...working on it...

although i don't think sample size is the problem here. 8 out of 10 people I ran into thought High School of the Dead is a great anime. The problem isn't the sample size, the problem being amongst all mainstream animes last season, that's probably the only semi decent one out there. Most people only see the most advertised mainstream anime, therefore increasing the sample size probably wouldn't have made a difference.

But thus explains why this blog is here in the first place, to give insight into the new and upcoming and current anime. I can see how HotD did get a lot of attention last season being a huge part of the mainstream, but they paid for it, so they got it i guess.

I personally have a look at all of the seasons anime before making any decisions, ill give any anime 1 opening episode to make an impression.

At least so far this season's poll agree with me about the best anime of the season :-)
