[Poll] Top 5 for January 2011

I've been waiting for this new anime that supposedly done by GAINAX and SUBARU, but I'm getting a bit impatient because according to their web site, the premiere date is February 1st. And after seeing the trailer on their web site ( I don't think it's going to be anything of importance that would affect my decision on this month's top five. So, I'm going to go ahead take my pick on January 2011 season's top five.

Looking back at all the premiere episodes, there are two words I'd like use to describe this season:

Utterly Pathetic

There are only a hand full I would consider to be not completely worthless, and even less I would consider decent. This is probably the worst season my blog has ever seen.

Last season, top three of my top five pick matched up exactly with the poll I put up. I think it's mostly because these three are animes with such exceptional qualities that no other anime in the season could match, and everybody agrees with that. This season, however, from my conversations I had with friends that also watch anime, I can already tell the poll is going to be all over the place. Really, if you have to pick a best out of pool of garbage, there's no telling what you would pick. Sadly, this is what we have to do for this season.

So, my top five pick for January 2011 new anime season are:

  1. Yumekui Merry
  2. Dragon Crisis
  3. Kimi ni Todoke 2nd Season Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica [Edit: 2/21/2011]
  4. Level E
  5. Fractale

In fact, this season is so bad, the only sure pick I have at the moment is my No. 1 pick, Yumekui Merry. So don't blame me if number 2 through 5 do not come out as good as you expect.

[Edit: 2/21/2011] I completely didn't see it coming, but Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica is such a good anime, so good that I'm willing to knock off the No. 3 spot anime from the season opener and replace it with Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica. Yes, it's that good.

Definitely agree that this season is pretty shitty. Here's to hoping for a better spring season!

yumekui merry, dragon crisis, level e. Those are the one i have some hope for, the amount of good anime is indeed low for this season.
