Spring 2022 anime ranking

The Spring 2022 anime season has ended and the Summer 2022 anime season has begun. Time flies, and here at Anime Corner, we’ve finished our calculations for the anime that debuted this season.

In case you missed it, Anime Corner held weekly polls from April 1, 2022 to July 3, 2022, collecting community feedback and ranking weekly episode releases. Our surveys collected data from 31,566 people throughout the season, and our results are based on the total amount of data collected.

We ran weekly polls from week 1 to week 12, followed by an end-of-season poll titled “Anime of the Season” from June 24 to July 3, 2022.

The final results of our polls accounted for 55% of the weight in the score rankings, with the results of the weekly polls accounting for the remaining 45%. The 45% weight is distributed in various ways over the course of twelve weeks resulting in multiple sets of data which are then combined to generate the list.

This is a weighted ranking, and we chose this method to ensure a more balanced end result.

We have taken steps to minimize spam and data duplication to ensure data integrity by logging each user’s IP address and allowing only one vote per option through that address for a single survey.
