Japan's Most Anticipated Late-Night Anime in Fall 2021

Japan's Most Anticipated Late-Night Anime in Fall 2021

The Japanese website GOO Ranking held a poll a few days ago, where fans could vote for their most anticipated late-night anime from the upcoming fall 2021 season. You can see the results below.

Japanese fans have chosen

More than 10,000 Japanese anime fans took part in the voting and were able to cast their votes for the series that will be broadcast on late-night programs on Japanese television in the fall 2021 season. Since the date of the second "Demon Slayer" season was not confirmed until after voting began, the series was not available for selection in this vote.

Many new seasons of already well-known titles like "Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation", "World Trigger" or "Restaurant to Another World" made it into the top 10, but new series like "Shikizakura" or "Komi Can't Communicate" also managed to secure a place in the list.
