13, Yang Wenli

This right here, this made my day as pathetic as that is (pretty uneventful day).

But wtf? Over Reinhard, Reuenthal, Oberstein, Mittermeyer, Kircheis, even over Poplan and Schenkopp this guy gets it? Makes me think that that low in the list is comprised of very few votes.

31, Archer
10, Saber
16, Ryogi, Shiki

And as the Type-Moon fan I am this is always nice to see, but not surprising in the least.

Nice to see char aznable in the 2nd place of 80's and Lynn Minmay in the 3rd place. It's quite a surprise gundam seed dominates 00's in both males and females.

No Tenjou Utena? And Ataru Moroboshi ranking higher than Yang Wenli (and Kenshiro as well)? Come on Japan, you know you can do better than that.

I will forgive them, though, because Kukuri is on the list, and that alone makes the list full of win. Let's not forget Cutie Honey either.

EDIT: No Ayumu "Osaka" Kasuga either? Japanese anime fans sure do forget great characters quickly in their search for the next great moeblob (who will probably won't be even a quarter as great as Kukuri).

I don't mind the absence of Kino too much, because I never expected her to feature in a list that is a basically a popularity contest anyway. There again, I didn't expect Kukuri to make an appearance in such a list, either.

An interesting list, for sure. Some personal opinions/observations:
-Koizumi? I don't hate the guy by any stretch, but he seems improbably high up on the list.
-Clearly, Senjougahara Fascination is in full swing over in Japan.
-How'd Tifa get into the running?
-I would rant about the lack of some of my favorites (No Haruko? MADNESS), but it's late and I should be going to sleep.
-It was good to see Fujioka Haruhi up there.
Ha-cha!

Japan did have good taste. Couldn't care less about the 00's one.-

Also, this is Newtype guys, that's why there's so much mecha characters (Not that that's a bad thing though)

Maetel being only 12th in the 1980's list feels so wrong...not as wrong as Spike Spiegel being only 18th in 1990's though.

What's positively surprising is that there's Tessa from FMP and no Chidori.

Shiki, Archer, Sheryl, Sakura, Luffy, Lockon, Gintoki and Kagura make me :D

Lelouch and Shinji make me die of laughter.

Ah well, I'm sure a poll done in the west would be much worse than anything Japan could come up with.

Shinji,Kaworu,Spike,Xellos-looks like japanese people have good taste unlike some people who(when watching these shows) made remarks like:''Shinji is a wimp'',''Asuka is an annoying bitch'',''Xellos is a bastard'' etc

Rei,Asuka,Lina-approved

Hei,Chiaki,Natsume,Akira,Tomoya,Archer-approved

Yuki,Shiki,Mari,Haruhi-Aprroved but the lack of Rena,Osaka and Kino annoys me

Not really, 1st half of SEED was character emo-velopment and easily one of my worst experiences with Gundam series. 2nd half was quite decent but nothing really good. Destiny, well, failed on most levels except soundtrack.

Maetel being only 12th in the 1980's list feels so wrong...


Yea, one of my peronal female favs of all time. Lum is also a great chara from what I've seen so far in Urusei Yatsura.


As for Shinji, no wonder. There are even his followers who did what he was afraid of: thus plenty of 'popular suicide spots' in Japan. ^^

Favourite guys are getting less manly and awesome and more gay as the decades pass.

I mean, I like Lelouch, but I prefer Char 1000 times over him.

what.

I suppose this explains all the fansites. Or maybe because it's an internet poll it's the other way around.

The three top names of the male list made me facepalm hard. Seriously, SEED and Geass?

The 80's one was by far the best. Chirico and Yang should have been higher of course.

Not surprised to see Sailor Moon girls in 90's list...

Looks like mechas dominated the lists.2000's male list is the worst one.There're really unnecessary ones in it

But happy to see that Nagato passed annoying Suzumiya
