That's what I was thinking, it's not a very good anime. No surprises seeing Americans putting Naruto as high as 3.

Mixing anime series with movies (and ghibli ftw) is like mixing Breaking Bad and GoT with The Godfather and TLOR. It doesn't make sense. Series are not movies. That's like comparing a video game to a TCG or a board game.

I don't really see the point in this, take a small sample and you'll get different results among different demographics in one country, let alone multinational... It's also a bit moot, since they're only reranking those shows, on a complete scale, a Japanese 28 of those 30, could be a 300 or so.

There is a very heavy bias towards movies too, which I find odd, I never felt movies were a great medium for anime, episodic works much better.
