Fans had had a while to get to know this year’s new spring anime and welcome back old favorites in sequel seasons, so now there’s no excuse for not having an opinion on who the best character is!
Anime!Anime!’s surveys have covered ideal characters as ranked by both genders, with results for female characters (male fans/female fans) and male fans’ favorite male characters already out. Now it’s time to move on to the final ranking, with 221 female fans having voted for their ideal guys from May 3−6. Are you ready to find out who managed to reach the top?
10. Hattori Heiji, Detective Conan
10. Akai Shuichi, Detective Conan
10. Bakugou Katsuki, My Hero Academia
10. Jigen Daisuke, Lupin the Third Part 5
10. Sugimoto Saichi, Golden Kamuy
8. Edogawa Conan, Detective Conan
8. Midoriya Izuku, My Hero Academia
7. Hozuki, Hozuki’s Coolheadedness
6. Anzai Yuki, Devil’s Line
5. Sasaki Haise, Tokyo Ghoul:re
With ties all around as usual, classic anime Detective Conan has taken not one, not two, but three places! Will this hold on the competition continue until the very top place, though?
4. Kabakura Taro, Wotakoi: Love is Hard for Otaku
Wotakoi’s atypical otaku has obviously won fans’ hearts for his mature and thoughtful approach to his hobby. Taro has good taste and is hugely into manga and games but takes the time to research new characters before getting into them and worries about the ethics of problematic genres!
2. Todoroki Shouto, My Hero Academia / Nifuji Hirotaka, Wotakoi: Love is Hard for Otaku
It’s a tie for second place with My Hero Academia’s aloof hero Todoroki Shouto and Wotakoi’s out and proud otaku Nifuji Hirotaka! This time around, it looks like strong and silent is the theme for the runners up.
1. Amuro Tooru / Furuya Rei, Detective Conan
And the winner is… Detective Conan’s mysterious investigator Amuro! Sailing into first place, Amuro seems to have ignited female fans’ imaginations with his duplicitous charms and his more secretive sides.
With such a diverse bunch of heroes, it can still be hard to decide who took the top place in your own heart. Did your favorites make the list?
