Akemashite omedetou gozaimasu!
2016 is here, and what better way to celebrate the new year than looking back on the old one?
With a survey of 476 /a/nons it's time to announce /a/'s Official™ and Objective™ AOTY 2015.
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 tastes are superior and you've always known /a/ had shit tastes anyway.
First, the seasonal awards, starting with Winter:
AOTS - Death Parade, with 71 votes
WAOTS - Aldnoah.Zero 2, with 50 votes
SOTS - RollingGirls, with 39 votes
DOTS - Aldnoah.Zero 2, with 57 votes
OPOTS - Death Parade, with 98 votes
EDOTS - RollingGirls and JoJo no Kimyou na Bouken: Stardust Crusaders - Egypt-hen, with 25 votes each
OSTOTS - RollingGirls, with 37 votes
Best Scene - Death Parade, with 13 votes
ED starts playing during the conclusion of the episode 8 & 9 arc
Best Girl - Katou Megumi from Sanai Heroine no Sodatekata, with 8 votes
Kato Megumi also took second with an additional 6 votes
Best Seiyuu - Kayano Ai, with 6 votes
Most watched show - Death Parade, with 192 viewers, constituting 64.43% of voters
Most dropped show - Absolute Duo, which lost 50 viewers, constituting 16.78% of voters
Maybe it was just a weak season, but Death Parade dominated the competition. The only thing people liked more than the show was its OP.
It was also the season of the anime original, with Death Parade and RollingGirls snatching up almost all of the positive awards.
Megumi was especially impressive this season, as she managed to overcome the flawed and lazy tallying system to take both first and second place, no wonder Sanai's waifu wars were so intense.
With Winter over we got some actual competition in Spring:
AOTS - Hibike! Euphonium, with 65 votes
WAOTS - Denpa Kyoushi, with 33 votes
SOTS - Etotama, with 38 votes
DOTS - Nagato Yuki-chan no Shoushitsu, with 23 votes
OPOTS - Kekkai Sensen, with 41 votes
EDOTS - Kekkai Sensen, with 64 votes
OSTOTS - Kekkai Sensen, with 50 votes
Best Scene - Kekkai Sensen, with 10 votes
At the end where Leonardo Watch runs towards William.
Best Girl - Oumae Kumiko from Hibike! Euphonium, with 15 votes
Best Seiyuu - Hayami Saori, with 10 votes
Most watched show - Hibike! Euphonium, with 149 viewers, constituting 52.46% of voters
Most dropped show - Denpa Kyoushi, which lost 54 viewers, constituting 19.01% of voters
KyoAni proves that they've still got it, grabbing AOTS on the strength of their unparalleled ability to produce best girls and blatant yuri baiting.
However, despite being a music anime that's also actually about music, it was beaten in every single musical award by Kekkai Sensen.
Etotama may have only won a handful of AOTS votes, but it still managed to surprise everyone with 3DCG that didn't suck ass. Too bad the sales made this zombie franchise even more dead.
Nagato Yuki-chan wasn't the worst anime this season, but that didn't stop it from pissing Haruhifags off to no end.
With six different shows winning awards, the competition was at its fiercest during Summer:
AOTS - Non Non Biyori Repeat, with 71 votes
WAOTS - Charlotte, with 37 votes
SOTS - Rokka no Yuusha, with 28 votes
DOTS - Charlotte, with 48 votes
OPOTS - Overlord, with 25 votes
EDOTS - Overlord, with 23 votes
OSTOTS - Non Non Biyori Repeat, with 30 votes
Best Scene - Non Non Biyori Repeat, with 8 votes
Renge learning to ride a bike.
Best Girl - Sakurada Akane from Joukamachi no Dandelion, with 6 votes
Best Seiyuu - Yuuki Aoi, with 8 votes
Most watched show - Charlotte, with 161 viewers, constituting 58.33% of voters
Most dropped show - Gangsta., which lost 49 viewers, constituting 17.75% of voters
Surprising no one, NNB takes AOTS and heals our weary souls. What might surprise you is that fewer than half of you actually watched it, making it the least watched show to win AOTS.
/a/ sure loves trainwrecks. Charlotte, despite getting WAOTS and DOTS, still managed to garner the highest viewership this season and a sizeable number of votes in all other categories.
Rokka no Yuusha is the Strongest Surprise of the Season, either because it kicked its fantasy setting out in favor of Batman solving mysteries or because it was a LN adaptation that was actually faithful to the source right up to the hook for a sequel that we'll never see animated.
In stark contrast to the comfy OSTOTS, Papa Bones' loud electro won OP and ED OTS.
With Sakurada Akane, Kasuga Ayumu won over our hearts and our dicks with more flat, twintailed goodness. I'm sure the incest didn't hurt either.
Finally, we reach the end with Fall:
AOTS - One Punch Man, with 99 votes
WAOTS - Comet Lucifer, with 36 votes
SOTS - Osomatsu-san, with 36 votes
DOTS - Comet Lucifer, with 29 votes
OPOTS - One Punch Man, with 76 votes
EDOTS - Gochuumon wa Usagi Desu ka??, with 32 votes
OSTOTS - One Punch Man, with 38 votes
Best Scene - One Punch Man, with 25 votes
Saitama vs Boros
Best Girl - Tatsumaki from One Punch Man, with 8 votes
Kirima Sharo and Kafuu Chino from Gochuumon wa Usagi Desu ka?? are the top two if you combine their different spellings.
Best Seiyuu - Inoue Marina and Yuuki Aoi, with 5 votes each
Most watched show - One Punch Man, with 209 viewers, constituting 77.41% of voters
Most dropped show - Comet Lucifer, which lost 58 viewers, constituting 21.48% of voters
There was fierce competition between the top five this season, but OPM still wins an overwhelming victory in several categoriies. Perhaps unsurprisingly given the sheer number of people that watched it.
Osomatsu-san proves that you don't even need a full season to surprise us. Just hope the second half can keep it up.
Despite having less than half the viewers, GochiUsa manages to put a dent in OPM's winning streak with lolis and rock paper scissors. It also managed to produce 3 strong candidates for best girl and would have won if this poll wasn't so fucking broken.
Now on to the yearly awards:
SOTY - Himouto! Umaru-chan, with 18 votes
DOTY - Charlotte, with 34 votes
OPOTY - One Punch Man, with 53 votes
EDOTY - Kekkai Sensen, with 44 votes
OSTOTY - Hibike! Euphonium, with 33 votes
Best Scene - One Punch Man, with 27 votes
Saitama vs Boros
Best Seiyuu - Yuuki Aoi, with 12 votes
Surprisingly, Umaru managed to surprise someone. I don't really understand this one either.
Charlotte manages to disappoint in every possible way.
Even though it didn't win in its own season, Hibike! Euphonium manages to make it to nationals with OSTOTY.
Maybe it was shit or maybe we've just forgotten it, but Winter didn't produce a single show to win a yearly title.
The important announcements are about to start, but first let's put things in perspective by letting you know just what shows /a/ was watching.
Most watched shows:
1 - One Punch Man, with 209 viewers, constituting 70.13% of voters
2 - Death Parade, with 192 viewers, constituting 64.43% of voters
3 - Charlotte, with 161 viewers, constituting 54.03% of voters
4 - Hibike! Euphonium, with 149 viewers, constituting 50.00% of voters
4 - Aldnoah.Zero 2, with 149 viewers, constituting 50.00% of voters
6 - Himouto! Umaru-chan, with 144 viewers, constituting 48.32% of voters
7 - Non Non Biyori Repeat, with 136 viewers, constituting 45.64% of voters
7 - Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works 2nd Season, with 136 viewers, constituting 45.64% of voters
9 - Owarimonogatari, with 133 viewers, constituting 44.63% of voters
10 - Gakkou Gurashi, with 132 viewers, constituting 44.30% of voters
Most dropped shows:
1 - Comet Lucifer, which lost 58 viewers, constituting 19.46% of voters
2 - Denpa Kyoushi, which lost 54 viewers, constituting 18.12% of voters
3 - Absolute Duo, which lost 50 viewers, constituting 16.78% of voters
4 - Gangsta., which lost 49 viewers, constituting 16.44% of voters
5 - Koufuku Graffiti, which lost 48 viewers, constituting 16.11% of voters
6 - Chaos Dragon: Sekiryuu Sen'eki, which lost 44 viewers, constituting 14.77% of voters
7 - ClassroomCrisis, which lost 42 viewers, constituting 14.09% of voters
8 - God Eater, which lost 40 viewers, constituting 13.42% of voters
9 - Heavy Object, which lost 34 viewers, constituting 11.41% of voters
10 - Kantai Collection: KanColle and Jitsu wa Watashi wa, which each lost 33 viewers, constituting 11.07% of voters
It's no wonder /a/ can't come to a consensus on anything when only three shows managed to break 50% viewership.
Perhaps even more surprising is the mixture of liked and hated series in the top 10. They say popularity doesn't equal quality, and that's as true here as it is anywhere else.
Now for the most important part, finding out who is the most beloved character of 2015:
5 - Akaza Akari, Midorikawa Hana, Speeddraw Fremy, Koshigaya Komari, Yuigahama Yui, Kafuu Chino, Oshino Ougi, Iki Hiyori, and Oshino Shinobu, with 4 votes each
4 - Hestia from Dungeon ni Deai wo Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru no Darou ka?, with 5 votes
3 - Tohsaka Rin from Fate, with 6 votes
2 - Tomori Nao from Charlotte, with 7 votes
Surprise of the season and disappointment of the season.
And the title of Best Girl 2015 belongs to:
Oumae Kumiko from Hibike! Euphonium, with 11 votes
Shouldn't have expected anything less from this board, honestly.
Before we get to the best, it's time for the worst. /a/'s most hated shows of 2015:
5 - Chaos Dragon: Edgy Garbage and One Joke Man, with 15 votes each
4 - Absolute Shit, with 16 votes
3 - IRC! Umaru-chan, with 17 votes
2 - Charlotte, with 21 votes
And the Worst Anime 2015 Award goes to:
Aldnoah.Zero Fans 2, with 27 votes
Finally, let's begin the countdown for AOTY 2015. The suspense must be killing you.
5th place goes to:
Gochuumon wa Usagi Desu ka??, with 21 votes and 208 points
However, Death Parade takes 5th place on points, with 14 votes and 229 points
Owarimonogatari, with 21 votes and 295 points
Non Non Biyori Repeat, with 44 votes and 431 points
Spoiling the Top 3
1 That moeshit with autistic girls
Hibike! Euphonium, with 46 votes and 444 points
You split the moe vote. You know what's coming.
And your 2015 AOTY, with 69 votes and 664 points, is:
One Punch Man
Congratulations to the winners.
It was a fun year and I look forward to doing it all over again with you faggots in 2016.

If you have any questions or recommendations, let me know.
I'll be posting some miscellaneous awards here until the thread dies.
I can tell immediately this poll isn't representative of /a/.
Death Parade wasn't liked much here aside from the OP.
The AOTS contenders were Yuri Kuma and Rolling Girls and those dominated all polls in March.
>Rolling Girls - 39 votes
Of course the real AOTS is the least watched one.
>However, despite being a music anime that's also actually about music, it was beaten in every single musical award by Kekkai Sensen.
>Kekkai Senshit winning OPOTS
Did anyone else but Senshitfags actually vote in this?
Nothing wrong here.
And then normalfags shit up the polls here.
>Most watched is OPM
Well duh. All of tumblr watched it so everyone knew about it.
No surprise here.
Thank god /a/ has good taste here.
Wait what? Oh no...please don't tell me.
Yep, it's what I think it is.
GOOD ANIMATION DOESN'T MAKE SOMETHING AOTY. FUCK ALL OF YOU FAGGOTS. I'M FUCKING MAD.
The Didn't Quite Cut It Award for most honorable mentions:
Charlotte and Etotama, with 4 mentions each
>this extremely good taste
Let the shitposting begin.
The Hipster Award for the show with the lowest viewership to get an AOTY vote:
Hana to Alice Satsujin Jiken, with 2 viewers (0.67%) and 1 AOTY vote
The It's Not My Favorite, But... Award for most AOTY points by a show without a single actual AOTY vote:
Wakaba＊Girl, with 0 votes and 67 points
I know OP put a disclaimer with the first post, but to think /a/'s tatse was capable of being such a high caliber of shit is something I just couldn't prepare myself for.
The Universally Loved Award for most AOTY votes to a show with no negative votes:
Gochuumon wa Usagi Desu ka??, with 21 AOTY, 0 WAOTY, and 0 DOTY votes
So was I the only one who liked this?
The Controversial Award for love it or hate it:
Himouto! Umaru-chan, with 14 AOTY and 17 WAOTY votes
I don't agree with the results but please learn how statistics work. 250 isn't a terrible sample size.
Well, this was a gigantic disappointment.
No, it got 3 votes at least. I liked it too, in my top 5.
Can't really help it when a random casual who gets excited by any over hyped seasonal shit has as much voting power as some /a/non who's been browsing for years and can actually judge a series objectively.
There's just no way to filter it.
It doesn't help when a third of /a/ has seen less than 100 anime.
Easiest way to tell who actually matters in a poll like this is kick out all people that aren't watching 5+ a season. If people only watch 5 shows all year, guess what happens to their top 5.
>a survey of 476 /a/nons
It was widely watched, popular with people who don't watch many shows, and didn't have any competition for fans of its genre.
If may have gotten the most votes, but it's still the minority of /a/ that liked it. Hence how it was also voted one of the worst anime of the year.
So did the waifu wars stop this from scoring higher? Or is that people are afraid to be
But the Nips agree Gochiusa is better than OPM
But OPM is just memes anon. No character development,no meaningful dialogue. Just memes memes memes and flashy fights. I guess if Micheal Bay made an anime with Commie devs it would be GOAT for /a/.
The Seasonal Waifu Award for most Girl of the Season votes to a girl with 0 Girl of the Year votes:
Sakurada Akane from Joukamachi no Dandelion, with 6 Girl of the Season votes and 0 Girl of the Year votes
To add to this, anyone that had Charlotte as worst show of the year wasn't watching much. It was bad but not even remotely near the worst of its own season, much less the year.
Denpa Kyoushi, Isuca, and Vampire Holmes were about the only shows that could have won that award.
>NNB third place
/a/ is dead. Welcome to reddit, everyone. I hope you enjoy your stay.
The What Was Her Name Again? Award for being unfairly disadvantaged due to having four different names:
Speeddraw Fremy/Speedraw Flamie/Speedraw Flammie/Speedraw Fremie
Ohmuro Sakurako/Omuro Sakurako/Oomoro Sakurako/Oomuro Sakurako
Toshino Kyouko/Toshinou Kyouko/Toushino Kyoko/Toushino Kyouko
The Contrarian Award for liking it just because everyone else hates it:
Absolute Duo, with 2 AOTY and 16 WAOTY votes
Charlotte actually had some of the best characters of the year.
Sanic, the idol, and Nao were all very well defined in personality and are all more memorable than any other characters year.
I seen ~800-900 since 2000. Your point?
OPM didn't even break 10k
Gochiusa sold 12k
The I Survived Award for sticking with it to the end:
Denpa Kyoushi, with 54 (18.12%) dropped and 30 (10.07%) completed
Maria actually had 16 AOTS votes and 2 AOTY votes. I was genuinely surprised.
I watch all the relevant shows senpai
If Charlotte just kept the SoL catching random dudes with powers antics for 12 episodes instead of the standard Jun Maeda brand plot it would have been AOTY material.
Charlotte seemed like it had something going until
puzza sauce. It's biggest flaw, which caused several of its other flaws, was that the story seemed to have been written by a 8-year-old, maybe younger since my imouto has written better material.
what happend here OP? sakura ayane gets 9 votes and ayane sakura gets 4 more... the same seiyuu..... Who is the Winner?
Of the top of my mind, shows that had more entertaining casts : Working, Wakaba Girl, NNB R, Hibike Eupho, Kekkai Sensen, Nagato-chan, Maria the virgin witch and YrYr.
Nao was great until the retarded plot kicked in. MC was Kanye-sama done worse and the sisters were cool but they weren't developed enough to feel for their conclusion scene.
Yuuki Aoi wins for having the most fans that know how to follow directions and format their fucking answers correctly.
There's way too many responses for me to manually count all of the misspellings and differently formatted names.
But the data is all there, so if you want to count them up to give us a proper ranking and post the results here, I'll add them to the sheet.
