There’s an anime site in Japan called Anime Anime, and it posed an important question to netizens: “Which anime do you most want a sequel to?” Voting was open for the week of April 14-21, and during that time 2,208 people responded. 55% percent were women and 45% percent were men. Around half were 19 or younger, and one in four were in their twenties. After voting closed the results were tallied.
We don’t know all the anime people voted for, but we do know the top twenty. Think about what anime you would most like to see a sequel for, and see if it is also on this list.

Okay, let’s slow down for the top five. In the meantime, are any of the aforementioned anime titles you’re also wanting a sequel for, or are you still waiting to see your favorite choice(s) to be named?
In fifth place, we have Gintama. In fourth place, there’s Adachi and Shimamura.
Rounding into the top three, Bloom Into You came in third place. It got about three percent of all votes.
The Millionaire Detective Balance: Unlimited nabbed second place with 5% of voters wanting this title.
