It’s strange how the Fall 2021 anime season feels like it began yesterday yet is now drawing to a close. Time flies, and here at Anime Corner, we’ve concluded our calculations for the anime that premiered this season.
In case you missed it, Anime Corner conducted weekly surveys from October 1, 2021 to December 24, 2021, gathering community insights and reporting rankings for weekly episode releases. Our surveys acquired data from 32,767 people during the season, and our findings are based on the overall data gathered thus far.
This season, we conducted weekly polls from Week 1 to Week 11, followed by a season-ending poll titled “Anime of the Season” from December 17 to December 24, 2021.
Our final poll data accounted for 55% of the weight in the score ranking, while data from our weekly polls accounted for the remaining 45%. The 45 percent weight is allocated via a variety of methods throughout the course of eleven weeks, resulting in multiple data sets that are then averaged.
This is a weighted ranking, and we picked this method in order to produce a more balanced result.
To maintain data integrity, we have made every effort to minimise spam and data duplication by logging each user’s IP address and allowing just one vote per option for a single poll via that address.
In other words, re-voting for a poll choice while browsing incognito will result in your vote being discarded. If you haven’t already, you can always return to a poll to vote as long as it is open.
Fall 2021 Anime Rankings
Before we continue, we’d like to point out that certain shows, such as “The Aquatope on White Sand,” were included in our weekly polls solely for data representation purposes and were left out of our seasonal rankings calculations because they premiered the previous season and aired without seasonal gaps.
Additionally, the rankings below should not be used to sway your decision to watch series listed lower than the Top 10, as each show has its own distinct style and each person’s taste in anime is unique. This season was jam-packed with surprises that we will certainly miss.

Fall 2021 Participant Statistics
As previously stated, we acquired data from 32,767 people this season via our weekly polls. The term “people” refers to the unique IP addresses that were logged during the submission of the poll. We’ve taken every precaution to prevent spam, avoid duplication, and ensure the integrity of our data.
Below, you’ll find demographic information on our voters.
The table below illustrates our voters’ age distribution. Because the age choice on our polls site is set to “13” by default, we’ve marked it as “Unknown” because we’re unsure whether the respondent is genuinely under the age of 13 or simply forgot to adjust it manually.
The table below shows the gender group voters selected when the poll was submitted.
Similarly, the table below indicates the number of people from each continent who were included in our data calculation.
We’d like to express our gratitude to everyone who voted in our polls again again. We eagerly await your responses to future polls.
We’re currently conducting surveys to analyse community interest in seiyuu and characters this season. We’d love to hear from you at polls.animecorner.me.
Update: We were made aware that the demographic information graphics were not loading properly for some users. They have been removed in favour of a table that should work on all devices.
