46. Mobile Suit Gundam 00 3.429
No surprises there
the next few lowly shows are:
45. Munto II 4.700
...and they've produced a TV series of this? I want my Haruhi dammit!!!
44. Munto 4.750
The original did slightly better
43. Appleseed Saga Ex Machina 5.000
A fine case of when sequel = fail...
42. Miyori No Mori 5.600
Not even the forest animals could save her...
41. Mahou Yuugi 2D 5.667
Fish coats do smell awful, no matter how you look at it...
40. Soul Eater 5.684
Yes, this is the lowest-rating current
playlist item (it was the one that started off dead last too, as I was hinting during the final meetings of last year)
...should we can this one from the playlist please?
...next up, the 30-somethings...
39. Lupin The 3rd - Stolen Lupin 5.769
...and I was expecting better from a Lupin movie...
38. Darker Than Black 5.789
...couldn't see the light?
37. Vexille - 2077 Nihon Sakoku 6.091
What is is with movies and having a low result this year...
36. Baccano! 6.133
Maybe a few too many characters for some?
35. Lupin The 3rd - Angel Tactics 6.308
=33. Toshokan Sensou / Genius Party 6.333
Oh look! Tied Spot!
32. xxx-Holic Kei 6.444
Maybe not quite as good as it should've been...
31. Hayate No Gotoku 6.533
The only show we actually dropped due to "tanking" issues...
30. Shigofumi 6.563
Not sure why this one ended up here?
...next, the "middle of the road"...
29. Mnemosyne 6.625
NSFW, that's for sure...
28. Code Geass R2 6.636
Even after all of that applause....
27. Claymore 6.647
Colour by numbers....but its all in shades of red!!
26. Wolf And Spice 6.762
probably needed more foxy-love
25. Seirei No Moribito 6.769
24. Soukou No Strain 6.824
Needs an *afterlife* version
23. Dai Mahou Touge 6.917
Still enjoyed the potato *peeling* itself...
22. Freedom 7.063
Brought to you by *CUP NOODLE!!!*
21. Dennou Coil 7.211
Did worse than I thought it would
20. The Garden Of Sinners 7.300
Did better than I thought it would

19. Sword Of The Stranger 7.375
18. Bounen No Xamdou 7.429
RUN AWAY RUN AWAY RUN AWAY.......
17. Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei 7.467

Another tied spot...
14. Penguin Girl Musume Heart 7.600
Much ado about something...
13. The Daughter Of 20 Faces 7.625
Just a normal girl, doing extraordinary things...
12. Eve No Jikan 7.636
Humans and Robots DO mix
11. Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni Kai 7.762
...was looking to finish in the top 10 for a while there, but got shot down at the last moment by another show...
...and now, for the AJAS 2008 POLL TOP TEN!!!!!
10. Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagaan 7.813
It's almost like watching Power Rangers
in a way....
9. Doujin Work 7.833
This was the only show in the top ten that I thought WOULDN'T be here, mind you, about halfway through this poll, it was in 2nd place.
8. Nodame Cantibile 7.933
Everyone thought this was going to win, since it is sooo good....
7. Hellsing Ultimate 7.938
This was going to be a runner-up for the third year running, until the very last set of votes came in....oh well
well, next would've been 6th, had it NOT been that 4 shows ended up being equal third...
So, the four shows who got third were....
=3. Kamichu!, Kite Liberator, Kurenai & Lucky Star OVA 8.000
Ironically, these four shows also appear in the same order in the original list...
...and then there were 2...
so, second place goes to....
2. Genshiken 2 8.211
For a previous AJAS poll winner to get second again, is quite a feat in itself, however, not as much as the winner did...
1. Michiko To Hatchin 9.300
Now here's a show that just bolted through for a win, here's some interesting stats:
1. It started first, stayed first, and finished first
2. We've only played 1 episode so far
3. Out of all the votes I recieved, the lowest anyone gave it was an 8
4. It was the only show to which Mappy gave a 10 for (which, btw, brings his streak of giving 10's to subsequent winners to 4)
...and that's it, be interesting to see who wins the next one
2008 Michiko To Hatchin Kamichu!
BY ORDER OF BARRON, WE ONLY WATCHED ONE EP! of michiko, oh and going to play kite/genshiken to the un initiated public are you?, well I would like to subscribe to your newsletter NOT. Kite is R18+ level anime smack. Barron will stop raging in 3.2.1 rage gone.
