Japanese Fans Pick Their Favorite Fall 2020 TV Anime by Online Voting

One month after the “anticipation ranking”[1] in early October, Japan’s largest mobile phone operator NTT Docomo reported the result of its regular online research survey to ask the users of its streaming service dAnime Store which fall 2020 TV anime they were still watching as their favorites.

The survey was conducted for one week between October 23 and 30, and a total of 151,791 votes were cast for the 46 titles that were available via the service. How have the Japanese viewers’ opinions changed or not after they actually started watching the fall 2020 series? Check out the result below.
