Votes are in: Readers Choice Anime of 2012!

8:00 PM on 12.31.2012 // Chris Walden

Oh, what a tease!

Well, here we are! We're at the very end of 2012 and the beginning of 2013, depending on exactly where you are in the world. Before we wave away the year for good, we have some unfinished business to attend to! I asked you all a few weeks ago to let me know what your favourite anime of the year was. Well, I've collected all of the votes, tallied them up, and you can see the winner below the jump.

Oh yes, I'm going to tease you just that much longer! I'd like to say a big thank you to everyone that took the time to vote. It might have taken me plenty of time to count them up, but seeing people support their favourite shows makes it absolutely worth it.

From everyone here at Japanator, we hope you have a fantastic new year. Here is to 2013!

Congratulations to Fate/Zero! It seems that your second season/half has managed to beat down some strong competition. Both Sword Art Online and Jojo's Bizarre Adventure have held the lead over the course of the voting period, so it wasn't as open a contest as it seems.

Whether you voted for the winner or not, why not check out some of the shows on this list? I'd say that anything with three votes or above must have something good going for it, but hey, why not take a chance with a one-voter? Voting for something that has no showing instead of the big F/Z versus SAO war must mean something, right?
