Hey there all you TAYers, Ani-TAYers, and everyone else who has stumbled across this post. Kotaku East's Richard Eisenbeis here with one question for you: What Are the Best Anime of Summer 2014?

As with past seasons, I will be posting an anime guide detailing the new summer anime you should be watching (and why) over on Kotaku. But before I do that, I'm here to ask you, as always, to help me narrow down which anime I should watch in preparation for the article.

Of course, I am watching more than a few anime myself already, but there is always the very real possibility that a few gems from among the 44 new anime this season will slip under my radar. In the past, your votes and recommendations have helped me to no end, so I hope you'll all help me again.


All you have to do is vote for the anime you think are among the best the season has to offer in the poll below. Vote for as many of them as you want—not just one. And please do tell me why you chose the shows you did in the comments below (this really helps).


Alright! Let's get to voting!
