Gin Tama, Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion, Fafner in the Azure
Second place is a three-way tie between Gin Tama, Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion and Fafner in the Azure.
Gin Tama – ranked number one among the 10s & 20s – is also popular with the 30s crowd.
Code Geass is “entertainment all packed into one heck of a roller coaster ride” that features a charismatic protagonist. The announcement of an all-new 2019 project Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion must have played a part in its high ranking in the poll.
Fafner in the Azure is “a masterpiece that paints the difficulty of mutual understanding and the importance of dialogue.” It also received praise for its depiction of anguish of various generations.
