The temperatures are changing, the fall leaves are falling, and there’s pumpkin flavored everything now that Fall 2015 has arrived.
With the arrival of fall, however, also comes reflection of the previous summer.
In particular, anime fans in Japan have begun to reminisce over the series’ they most enjoyed over this past summer. According to a poll of over 1,000 fans, the top three anime series that premiered in the summer 2015 anime season were “Charlotte,” “Prison School,” and “School Live.” Fans can check out the full top 10 below.
In response to the Japanese poll, fans outside of Japan on Crunchyroll are expressing their differing opinions.
“‘Charlotte’ number 1 and ‘Monster Musume’ not on the list? What has this world come to,” said OtakuSenseiHig.
Other fans were in agreement about the greatness of “Charlotte.”
“I thought Charlotte was fairly written and ended really well,” said 0Noise.
Crunchyroll reports the following Top 10 Summer 2015 Anime List according to the poll.

5. “Snow White with the Red Hair”
7. “Working” Season 3

For fans interest in the top series “Charlotte,” My Anime List provides the following description of the story.
“While on the surface Yuu Otosaka appears to be just another charming and intelligent teenager, he has a secret-he has the ability to slip into people’s minds and fully control their body for five seconds at a time. Yuu has been using this skill for years to gain the highest grades, which allowed him to enter a prestigious high school.”
It goes on:
“When the enigmatic Nao Tomori catches Yuu using his power, she coerces him and his sister Ayumi into transferring to Hoshinoumi Academy, a school for students with supernatural abilities. The student council of the school, led by Nao, is tasked with secretly tracking down adolescents who abuse their powers. Yuu is forced to join the student council and together, they face formidable challenges that bring him closer to the shocking truth that his own, seemingly incomplete ability, might be more powerful than he could have ever imagined.”
