Another Anime Trending (AT) Classic is brewing as Fruits Basket is at the #1 spot again of this week’s top anime charts – swapping places with Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba for the 6th time in a row. Carole and Tuesday however threatens to end the cat-and-mouse chase saga and is now knocking at the top spot’s doorstep as it finishes at #2 this week.
Last time AT viewers witnessed a classic rivalry between two anime was with Fate/Stay Night and My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU back in 2015 that reached up to AT’s top title of ‘Anime of the Year’.
After a slow start in which it nearly got booted out of the Top 10, Bungo Stray Dogs finally broke in to the Top 5, improving by 2 spots from last week. Bungo Stay Dogs‘ first two seasons previously had a great run in AT’s charts, finishing at #4 during the Spring 2016 Anime Awards and was almost close to being ‘Anime of the Season’ in Fall 2016, finishing as a runner-up for the title.
Hitoribocchi no Seikatsu meanwhile comes up big as it returns in the Top 10 Anime Charts as it finishes at #7 this week.
Levi Ackerman (Attack on Titan) and Nanako Yukishiro (Senryuu Girl) meanwhile maintains their hold of the male and female charts respectively while the latter’s ship with Eiji Busujima fails to do so as they concede to Kono Oto Tomare‘s flagship of Chika Kudo and Satowa Hozuki.
Nariyuki Yuiga (We Never Learn) though is on track to become Fuuthanos’ (Fuutarou Uesugi of The Quintessential Quintuplets) successor as his ship with Mafuyu Kirisu enters the Couple-Ship Chart debuting at #5, this in the midst of the rise of ‘TILF’. Also adding another ship on the said charts is Atsushi Nakajima (Bungo Stray Dogs) as his ship with Lucy Maud Montgomery debuts at #10. He is also being shipped with Kyouka Izumi which is at #9.
