Summer 2015 Anime Dropped After Episode 1 [Japan Poll]

makura_danshi Summer 2015 Anime Dropped After Episode 1 [Japan Poll]

What You Need to Know:

  • Some of the worst anime in the Summer 2015 season have been unveiled through a poll done by asking Japanese fans whether or not they watched the 2nd episode of each anime after having seen episode 1.
  • The ranking has some upsets, but is mostly filled with anime that most can agree could have done better.
  • Important to note is the fact that some anime started later in the season than others, and some people may have responded to the poll not realizing a 2nd episode was released (this can explain God Eater's surprising 9th place finish). Below is the ranking.
1st: Makura Danshi (47.1%)
2nd: The iDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls 2nd Season (37.3%)
3rd: Junjou Romantica 3 (32.4%)
4th: Aquarion Logos (31.3%)
5th: Monster Musume no Iru Nichijou (27.0%)
6th: Jitsu wa Watashi wa (26.9%)
7th: Million Doll (26.8%)
8th: Snow White with the Red Hair (26.4%)
9th: God Eater (25.7%)
10th: Aoharu x Machine Gun (24.4%)

This means that 47.1% of those who watched episode 1 of Makura Danshi chose not to give episode 2 and onward any chance.

What's surprising is how poorly Cinderella Girls 2 is doing compared to its predecessor.

While an anime can't be judged merely on its first episode, this ranking seems to contain some of the worst this season.

Reactions Around the Web

"All considered, these were some pretty unexpected results."
"All those guys who dropped iDOLM@STER on ep. 1 probably never saw the 1st season!"
"I was expecting to see Shimoneta on this list, but maybe it's more interesting this way."
"Am I the only one who dropped Gakkou Gurashi at ep. 1 because it was too scary?"
