The results of the Spring 2021 Anime of the Season rankings have arrived!

In case you missed it, from April 02, 2021 to July 02, 2021, Anime Corner conducted weekly surveys for the Spring 2021 anime season. Throughout the season, 48,250 people participated in our surveys, and our results are based on the total data that we have gathered so far.

This season, we ran weekly polls from Week 1 to Week 12, followed by a final poll called “Anime of the Season” from June 25 to July 2, 2021.

The data from our final poll received 55% of the weight in the score ranking, while data from our weekly polls received the remaining 45%. The 45 percent weight is distributed over the course of twelve weeks using various methods, resulting in multiple data sets that are then averaged.

It’s a weighted ranking, and we chose this method to achieve a more balanced outcome.

We have done our best to eliminate spam and data duplication by recording each user’s IP address and allowing only one vote per option for a specific poll via that address to ensure data integrity.

In other words, if you attempt to re-vote for a poll option while browsing incognito, your vote will be discarded. If you haven’t already done so, you can always return to vote in a poll as long as it’s open.

Spring 2021 Ranking Results

Before we continue, we’d like to point out that “So I’m a Spider, So What?” was only permitted in our weekly polls for data representation purposes, and it was not included in our calculations for “Spring 2021 Anime of the Season” rankings because it is considered a Winter 2021 anime.

Furthermore, the rankings below should not be used to influence your decision to watch shows ranked lower than the Top 10, as each show has its own distinct style, and everyone’s taste in anime differs. This season was jam-packed with surprises and fantastic shows that we will undoubtedly miss.

The graphic below depicts the Top 10 Anime of the Season for Spring 2021.

Congratulations to “Fruits Basket: The Final” for taking the top spot and becoming the season’s fan favorite! In addition, we’d like to congratulate “Vivy -Fluorite Eye’s Song-” on being the runner-up as well as the season’s number one non-sequel anime.

We appreciate everyone who took part in our polls and provided us with feedback. We’ve added information about our voters’ demographics below.

[NOTE: The visual charts below may appear as a table on some devices..]

Spring 2021 Participant Statistics

The age distribution of our voters is depicted in the bar chart below. The age option on our polls site is set to “13” by default, so we’ve listed that as “Unknown” because we’re not sure if a person is actually under 13 or if they simply didn’t adjust it manually.

The pie chart below depicts the gender group selected by voters when the poll was submitted.

Similarly, a geographical chart is provided below to show how many people were included in our data calculation from each continent.

Once again, we’d like to congratulate everyone who participated in our polls. We look forward to hearing from you in our upcoming surveys.

If you missed out on our weekly or seasonal polls in Spring 2021, don’t worry because we are currently conducting a survey for our fans’ favorite shows for the first week of the anime season in Summer 2021. We’d appreciate it if you could share your interests with us on polls.animecorner.me.
