Interesting results from the reader poll for 2012. The top 10 series were all on my personal Top 13, though in different order. I would call Hyouka coming out on top a mild surprise, but as I said on my list this was the hardest show to rank – at its best it was as good as any series of 2012, but it wasn’t at its best as often as the other shows in the list.
I’m mildly surprised that Nazo no Kanojo X fared as poorly as it did (1.36%, fewer votes than Kamisama Hajimemashita and K, among others) and that Kimi to Boku II got as many votes as Tari Tari. It’ll be interesting to compare these results to the RC list when that comes out, especially as regards shows like SAO, Horizon and Nisemonogatari.
