Besides Sword Art Online, The Irregular At Magic High School has shown that it remains strong with both Shiba siblings staying close to their SAO counterparts. Free! also has a strong showing taking #5 and #6 for the male rankings and #4 for the female rankings. And YES, Kira and Lacus are STILL THERE.

Saber is also still going strong, however, expect her ranking to surge next month as ufotable’s Fate/ Stay night adaptation will be premiering. Jotaro Kujo meanwhile remain strong as he takes the #3 spot for the male rankings. Oh, and did I mention that Kira and Lacus are still in the Top 10 even though Gundam SEED Destiny ended years ago?
