Best single/album in the second half of 2016 [RESULTS]

And the final nominees are already out! After one month of voting, you’ve chosen the following releases to go head to head with the ones already qualified during this past summer.

Without further ado, the top 5 for each category are the following:


Mamoru Miyano – Tempest 223 20.44%
Mamoru Miyano – The Birth 195 17.87%
Shouta Aoi – DDD 177 16.22%
Shouta Aoi – Innocent 154 14.12%
Kenichi Suzumura – HIDE-AND-SEEK 78 7.15%



Quell – “Believer – inori” 112 17.69%  
SolidS – White 85 13.43%  
My milky way – Kashimashi Love 75 11.85%  
Granrodeo – Shounen no Hate 74 11.69%  
NEBULAS – Canaria 60 9.48%

Nebulas’ “Canaria” tied up with OLDCODEX’ “Deal with” with a total of 60 votes, representing 9,48% of the total votes. Alphabetically (either by group name or release title) Nebulas’ “Canaria” qualifies for the final round.


Due to the lack of releases of this nature during the second half of the year (not counting with December releases), these albums qualified for the final round.

  • Miyu Irino – Dare to dream
  • Hiroshi Kamiya – Theatre
  • Takuya Sato – Heart
  • Uncle Bomb – Two-sides

The final poll “Best of 2016” will kick off on 02/01/2017 UTC+00:00.
