Many of the winter animations that will mark the beginning of 2021 have finished their first broadcast. In this term as well, we have a variety of titles, from original titles that are attracting attention to topical works that were desired to be animated, and sequels to blockbuster works.
Anime! Anime! So, I previously conducted a reader survey entitled “What are the works with high expectations for 2021 winter anime?” I think some readers have changed their opinions when the broadcast actually started. What is the most recommended work right now?
Therefore, this time, we conducted a reader survey entitled “What is the most recommended work for the 2021 winter anime” now “?” We received responses from 344 people during the survey period from January 21st to January 28th.
The male-female ratio is about 35% for males and about 65% for females. About 40% of the age group was 19 years old or younger, and about 25% were in their 20s.

“It was announced that the original work will finally be completed, and the animation will be hot. The beauty of the top-class drawing in winter animation, the cruelty that makes it uneasy to be aired on public broadcasting, the content is too rich. Every time I feel like it’s over in a blink of an eye, “and” I’m sad that the “advancement” that has been going on until now is over, but I’m worried about what will happen to this war! ” Both the original and the anime are showing momentum toward the finale.
