The big names win the day.
Established franchises and mainstream shows – especially those with Urobuchi Gen connections, even if he’s not involved any longer – dominated the Fall Preview poll. Only Kiseijuu broke up a top 5 of sequels, and two of them were shows that didn’t even make the site preview post. This is possibly the most mainstream result I’ve seen in an LiA season preview poll, though if there’s any deeper meaning to that I wouldn’t know.
In he always interesting comparison to the RC poll, we see the two two series the same but flipped (F/SN ahead of Psycho-Pass 2) Log Horizon 2 one spot higher, and a huge gap with Amagi Brilliant Park – it garnered only 2.37% here but placed 4th at RC with 24% of the voters choosing it (pat yourselves on the back on this one, LiA voters). Mushishi Zoku Shou rounds out the LiA Top 5, while Gundam G no Reconguista does so at RC. Other shows that saw wide gaps are Trinity Seven (much higher at RC) and Yowamushi Pedal Grande Road (much higher here).
