I also helped get ReZero to most disappointing. We're the best!

Also, I'm beyond upset that Haikyuu wasn't in the top 5. It was by far the best anime of 2016, but I guess Logan and I weren't enough to get it into the top 5.

Also, Nobunaga from Drifters deserves praise for being the best Nobunaga in a medium filled with thousands of them. He was incredible from start to finish.

Excellent cast as always Chris and Andrew! I really appreciated all the Showa love, hope you guys are also enjoying this second season we got going now! I'm loving that Konatsu is getting more screen time.

Also I like your guys' shipping of Felix and Rem, hadn't thought of that one. I laughed when Chris said he ships the "Fire" outa them :lol:

How'd you guys know I stuffed the votes in favor of Haikyuu!!!!????!??!?!?! :lol:

Interesting results this year! Wasn't expecting Flip Flappers to be the top pick for the Fall season, and we all know that Haifuri is the worst show of 2016, no matter what the votes say! :D

Planetarian was considered a short?!? I thought a short was shows under 14 to 15 minutes long. If I knew Planetarian was considered a short that'd be my number one short no hesitation! Thought I'd explain myself for that since Planetarian was my #1 of the entire year.

But anyway. Great as always guys! Really awesome hearing everyone's combined lists, I was very surprised with the number one best of overall choice for the community. I thought Re Zero had it, was extremely surprised Erased beat it out. Both fantastic shows though!

Here's to a great 2017! Appreciate everything you guys do, as well as what Logan, Neko and what everyone does for the forums. OS is a great group of people I'm very happy to be a part of it. Looking forward to a great year with you guys and the community!
