It comes to no surprise that the ones who are already introduced in the anime have placed very high with Souhouku’s top climber known as the “Peak Spider”, Yuusuke Makishima taking the top spot. He has proven to be popular with the ladies with his unique charm and personality.

Taking the #2 spot is main character Onoda whose character and portrayal may have echoed the lives of several otakus who are not only into anime but also sports. The #3 spot goes to Teshima Junta who has won over many readers because he may not be as fast or as talented as the other members, but he makes up for it with his tactics and blocking skills.

So, who is your favorite Yowamushi Pedal character?
