    We're now a good month into 2017, and a new Winter anime season, but cast your mind back to last year's offerings, and let's find out which was the most popular of them all here on TSR.

    Unfortunately, the limited poll options don't allow for every series to be included, far from it. Therefore, I've taken the top four results from my earlier Spring, Summer and Autumn polls, as well as four from last Winter based on high Anime-Planet ratings & view counts (since I didn't make a poll that season). :ahee: Feel free to post about any other series you loved that didn't make the list, however!

    IF, ketsu played out like the graphic novels, then I would have voted for that. unfortunately it was too rushed / toned down (the finale between shizuo and izaya was toned down, the original saika owner was toned down, as was what happened to varona and shinra). Ill admit I liked what happened to the main 3 and the ending with celty was lol. in the end i voted drifters

    on a side-note AngryJellyfish, you should make a poll about underrated anime (I have a few that spring to mind).

    I've not played/read the Durarara!! graphic novels, but agree that the pacing felt a little off at times. I've seen worse, but it's a shame it couldn't have had a few more episodes to play with. Looks like Ketsu has a fair few other fans here, though! :p:

    As for the underrated anime, I'm not sure how that would work in a poll. There are so many series out there, it took me three (should have been four) polls to narrow just last year's series down to the sixteen above, and I had to leave some shows out of those initial polls! An underrated anime THREAD in general could work, though. :hmmmm2:

    I guess you could open a thread asking people to share underrated anime (id say make it anonymised as there are some anime which people dont want to admit to irl/ using a known username).

    In terms of criteria, it can be from any year, must be an anime which people arent overtly familiar with but has good reception from fans / reviewers. people can also differentiate dubs (ie japdub or englishdub) as different dubs can affect the quality (durarara is better in japanese, DBZ in english).

    exclusion criteria should include hentai, super erotic anime and anything of that sort.

    Posting anon simply due to embarrassment at having watched a series would be misuse of the function unfortunately, and you can't use it in the TV shows forum anyway. :nah: Discussing/recommending hentai also goes against TSRs Ts&Cs, so no worries there.

    Personally, I'd think that guilty pleasures (the types of shows that are so bad, they're good, or that are obviously aimed at a completely different demographic etc) would be more the kind of thing you might not want people knowing you like. Underrated series should be just that, series you think are great and want to share, but that have fallen below most people's radars.

    I may well put together a thread tomorrow, after I've gotten together a good list of my own. :yes:

    Interesting to see Re:Zero leading this poll, when it came a distant second in the Summer one. It got my vote in both, though!

    c'mon durarara/drifters

    question to AngryJellyfish : thoughts on latest ibo episode (noticed tpx1 set up a gundam thread so I guess you can post there). its annoying trying to find people to discuss with it in detail about irl as most my friends irl either dont like anime or they like stuff I aint into; same case for TSR tbh.
