FilmarksJapan's largest Tokyo-based review service recently released three new rankings indicating what is considered that best anime series of spring 2021 by fan votes. Without too many surprises at the top of the leaderboard, there are two very important souls, but luckily there are underdogs.

The three rankings were each created on the basis of the "satisfaction level" given by fans with a rating of one to five stars, "number of ratings" and "number of comments". The numbers that you see in the first two rankings next to the name of the anime series represent the average of the votes of the users and the number of reviews registered on the portal. The ranking was created with a survey started in May 2021.
