Multi-cour series aren’t nearly as common as they used to be in anime. But the polls should be interesting starting this week, because our writers’ clear #1 series of the winter season, Dororo, powers on into spring without missing a beat. Awaiting it are some heavy hitters – though one of the most prominent “new” series is on of the oldest stories. Remember, this ballot returns to the regular criteria – any currently airing series is eligible.
This week’s bonus poll asks our writers to name their favorite OP/EDs of the season. Again, all currently series are eligible here, provided the OP/ED sequence is new for spring.
Here’s the first comprehensive look at how the RC team sees the current season’s offerings:
Weekly Staff Poll (premieres only)
Bonus Poll: Best OP/ED
“Stand by Me” (The Peggies) – Sarazanmai ED – 18 points, 2 first place votes
“Kiss Me” (Vo Nai.Br XX & Celeina Ann) – Carole & Tuesday OP – 14, 2
“Again” (Beverly) – Fruits Basket (2019) OP – 10
“Dororo” (Asian Kung Fu Generation) – Dororo OP2 – 9
“Kurenge” – (LiSA) – Kimetsu no Yaiba OP – 8
