Cherry blossoms are a symbol of Japanese culture, and unsurprisingly they’re everywhere in anime. But which anime do fans connect most with beautiful imagery of sakura trees? News site Anime! Anime! ran a quick two-day poll to see which series its readers most associated with images of sakura. The 229 voters lined up their top ten — or twelve, rather, given how the ties ened up. How do they match up with yours?
