Recently, on a grade school-only forum on mb2.jp (How you control something like that?) there was a poll allowing users to vote for their favorite Anime.
Ever curious what Japanese kids watch? Here's the list
1. Kuroko no basuke
2. Inazuma Eleven GO Galaxy
3. Sword Art Online
5. Ouran High School Host Club (tie)
5. Gintama (tie)
8. Tenisu no Ōjisama (The Prince Of Tennis) (tie)
8. Soul Eater (tie)
10. Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan) (tie)
10. Aikatsu! (tie)
12. Haganai (tie)
13. Danbōru Senki Wars (Little Battlers eXperience)
Sports Anime are always popular amongst kids, I remember growing watching Captain Tsubasa and Slam Dunk made want to play Soccer and Basketball. Also action series are also popular, like all the kids in school (including me) were throwing invisible powers at one another.
So I get why most on the series are on the list. The question here is, What is OreImo doing in that list? Does this mean that the Little Sister genre is popular between grade schoolers? that would explain why there's a lot of SisCon Animes recently. Also I think Haganai is somewhat depressing for kids, although they may learn what not to do in school ?? Beats me.
Also, seems like kids indeed like Aikatsu!, so those guys from earlier are indeed assholes
Now that I think about it I also use to watch Ranma 1/2 and Sailor Moon (as a little kid those panties shots are something else), both series touch some delicate themes for kids so I'm guessing that's normal??? I don't know. Anyway
What's you opinion about the results of the poll? Also what's the weirdest Anime you watched as a kid
