Vote for Your Favorite Anime and Manga in 2014!

It's time to vote for your favorite anime/manga series of 2014!

The time has come for all to cast their votes for Anime Vice's Top Anime and Manga of 2014. The voting starts now and will end at 11:59 PM, January 5th with the final results published later that week.

The method of voting this year is the same as last year.

  • Check the list of 2014 Anime and Manga. There are two separate lists.
  • Copy & paste your votes into the voting forms: Anime and Manga. Make sure you fill out using the exact name used on the spreadsheet. Copying and pasting from one to the other helps!
  • Don’t forget to fill in your username.

You don't need to have a Gmail account to vote. In only the anime Gdocs, we include both official English translated names and Romanized names. For Example, Blue Spring Ride is written on the form as "Blue Spring Ride (Ao Haru Ride)" in the spreadsheet. A vote for "Blue Spring Ride" or "Ao Haru Ride" will count as votes for two separate series, neither of which is actually the entry on the list! For manga, you only need to include names from column A.

There were titles last year that would have had their rank altered by a single vote so be sure that yours is counted correctly! If you are having problems locating your series, the list is searchable (press Ctrl/Cmd+F). Try searching for part of the title to see if it appears.

And as if you needed any more incentive to participate... Tom and Sam are going to cover the results in a special episode of the Vice Pit next year! That's right! Every vote counts!

I feel like this should have been near the end of the month since many series are still finishing up. Still I feel that most of the good series are pretty even in quality. It been a good year.

Lurkeroon Dec. 3, 2014 at 3:10 p.m.

Unfortunately, I haven't been watching nearly enough anime and manga to contribute to a vote.

@metalsnakezero:

I do see your point, but this poll is opened for a whole month, into January, giving folks some time to finish the fall 2014 shows. If you feel that sick and I should extend the deadline, I'll talk to sick since he's the supervisor of the project.

Oh it's here!

takashichea moderator is online on Dec. 3, 2014 at 3:35 p.m.

Made some revisions. I was up all night, and I guess I wasn't careful.

Revisions

  • I combined Space Dandy 1 and 2 together. You don't have to split the vote with series and their sequels.

@Lurkero:

You can vote for 1 show or manga. That's the only required amount. It's up to you. I hope to see a bigger turnout. Our goal is to reach more than 50 users in the site this year. Every vote is crucial to make this better.

@taichokage:

Welcome! Let me know if you spot anything I miss.

Supreme Marvelon Dec. 3, 2014 at 6:34 p.m.

The major battle was between these two animé.

  • Aldnoah.Zero
  • Knights of Sidonia (Sidonia no Kishi)

I will choose Aldnoah.Zero. I kept surprising me each episode.

I barely read any manga, but I will look through them and see if there is anything that stands out.

You're missing Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso.

Supreme Marvelon Dec. 3, 2014 at 6:49 p.m.

Actually, I'm going with Mysterious Girlfriend X, for best Manga, since it kept me reading for so long.

@Dream:

I do have that. Sorry, I didn't fix the title. I do in a sec. I was busy updating the manga gdocs with Crunchyroll simulpubs.

Dream moderator is online on Dec. 3, 2014 at 6:58 p.m.

Submitted mine, top picks for me were Mushishi's new season and Parasyte: The Maxim.

Bigheart711on Dec. 3, 2014 at 7:31 p.m.

This is going to take some thought. I've seen a LOT more anime than last year. College kicked my ass back then, but thankfully, it's been kicking my ass less this year.

@Supreme Marvel:

If you wanted to add more when you do read more titles later on, you can PM me or sickVisionz to update your votes.

@Bigheart711:

Same here. There were a ton of good anime I watched from hyped ones to the underrated, obscure ones. Glad to see you here old friend.

Kino88on Dec. 3, 2014 at 9:22 p.m.
I'm going with Parasyte all the way!, However I can't help but wonder, Is there a reason Stardust Crusaders wasn't on the List, cause it sure as hell should have been, I mean it may not be my top pick, but it was huge contender.

@Kino88:

If you spot anything missing, you can ask me or sickVisionz to add it. I just added Stardust Crusaders. My mistake. Sorry, I was working all week long and triple check it, but I still miss some things. If you need to update your votes, PM me I fix it for you.

You can also go here if you find more things missing: Please Help Me Update Anime Vice's Anime/Manga 2014 List.

YotaruVegetaon Dec. 4, 2014 at 5:40 a.m.

The more I read and recall the anime of this year, the harder voting got! Good anime have been kicked off my top 5!!

I will give you hints:

1. Nothing with Tokyo in the title has made my list.

2. Only ONE Shinichiro Watanabe...has made my list.

Dekkenon Dec. 6, 2014 at 3:04 p.m.

Already sent my votes.

EVA_01on Dec. 6, 2014 at 3:10 p.m.

Sent. I haven't seen much of 2014 so there are series I haven't done justice.

takashichea moderator is online on Dec. 6, 2014 at 3:26 p.m.

@Dekken:

Thank you!

@EVA_01:

Thank you! A lot of folks had mixed reactions. For me, I found a lot. I can understand there were series that didn't stand out.

Kuma_From_Argentinaon Dec. 6, 2014 at 4:38 p.m.

Voted, I had it hard to choose

@Kuma_From_Argentina:

Thank you so much. I hope you look forward to the final results.
