2017 is here, and what better way to celebrate the new year than looking back on the old one?
With a survey of 333 /a/nons it's time to announce /a/'s Official™ and Objective™ AOTY 2016.
Categories include best anime, worst anime, most surprising anime, most disappointing anime, best OP, best ED, best OST, best scene, best girl, best boy, best seiyuu, shows watched, and shows dropped.
The announcements will start below and the complete data sheet will be posted at the end so you can verify I'm not just making this shit up.
And remember, none of this matters anyway because your taste is superior and you've always known /a/ had shit taste.

Hai to Gensou no Grimgar - It was a much more realistic look at the Isekai genre and watching these characters grow into being more competent fighters and learning to work as a team rather than just doing so right from the beginning lead to a better story.
AJIN - Because it was another fresh take into the 3D medium with varying but but mostly positive results.
Koukaku no Pandora - If you don't like nekomimi android battle maids you're a faggot.
KonoSuba wins on the strength of its comedy and strong characters, taking best boy and the top two slots for best girl thanks to Megumin and Aqua. Darkness did not contribute.
How much value do you put into visual direction?
She was cute as fuck and apart from being a bit conceited, she was an understanding girl.
She just wanted people to recognize her work and be praised for it despite being forced to take over her dad's job after he died.
Why did she have to die /a/?
This year's the year we will get season three!
Any day now.
/a/s opinion on delinquent girls?
We need more of them.
They're too cute.
>No Megumeme monday thread
/a/ has truly fallen below acceptable quality standards
>That sweet feeling when you think you're fucked because you haven't killed enough Petras, but then you realize you can always kill more so you're back in business.
Will Ymir get to marry Historia?
Jesus, Annie makes my heart go
Naruto was at its absolute best during the Pain arc and should have ended there. Everything that came after it was a fucking abomination.
This color page is foreshadowing Jinbe joining the crew.
What do you think it would be like if Jojo's part 9 or even part 10 was set in medieval times? Would you like it? Would you dislike it? Honestly i don't think it would be the greatest thing ever but it would be interesting at least, it would be a good opportunity to Araraki's artstyle flourish even more and we would be seeing much more unique character designs and stand designs imo, but regardless of what i thinkg what are your thoughts on it?
To be kinda honest it sounds kinda gimmicky. I'm reading part 6 right now and I really enjoy that it's set in modern times, not that the first few parts were bad I just think with all the stands and weirdness putting it in an even more weird setting would be too much.
Will we see more of Gowasu?
Nemurinland ver 3
BD Vol. 1
And I want to
>Top Girl is dead
>people still watch this trash

I think we need to explore Cocona's butt further.
