Today’s ranking comes from the July 2014 issue of the popular Japanese magazine, NewType; we’ve taken the time to translate the whole article for your enjoyment. Earlier this week we did a write-up on this issue, giving an in-depth look into the magazine itself as well as the posters that come with it: you can read that here.

Before we go to the listings here is the image scan of the July 2014 Anime Popularity Ranking from the latest NewType Magazine.
