Based on a survey launched by anime goods store, Lashinbang, music anime BanG Dream! ranks first place as customers’ favorite anime.
The survey was launched on Lashinbang’s English Facebook page, and ran from February 7 to March 22, 2020. Majority of the respondents come from all over Southeast Asia, particularly Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, and the Philippines.
In a surprise twist, Love Live! series comes in second place, despite its immense popularity and massive following in Japan and overseas. Meanwhile, coming in third is another idol series, IDOLM@STER. Even more surprising are cult or classic entries making the cut, like Madoka Magica and CLANNAD; while long-running shounen series such as One Piece and Naruto are to be expected despite the low poll rankings.
The survey is still up and running, with the next results releasing on April 5, 2020. Cast your votes here. Thanks to Lashinbang for sending us the results!
