In Japan, Christmas is often associated with romance as couples would often on a date during that time. And because of this, Japanese online store app, Otomart has asked some of its users which certain anime, vocaloid, or manga character would they want to spend a Christmas date with?
The poll garnered a total of 1,752 votes within just 24 hours of voting. An overwhelming number of women voted in these rankings as 85.9% of all the voters are women while only 14.1% are men. The women of course voted for male characters while the men voted for female characters. Here are the Top 10 (or eleven since there is a tie):
11/ 10 (tie): Rin Matsuoka (Free!) and Kuroko Tetsuya (Kuroko’s Basketball)
9) Koushi Sugawara (Haikyuu!)
8) Rin Hoshizora (Love Live!)
7) Kotori Minami (Love Live!)
6) Levi (Attack on Titan)
5) Kei Tsukishima (Haikyuu!!)
4) Ai Mikaze (UtaPri)
3) Makoto Tachibana (Free!)
2) Syo Kurusu (UtaPri)
1) Yasutomo Arakita (Yowamushi Pedal)
Hakone Academy’s resident badboy is the one ladies want to go on a date with on Christmas the most, and with the women overwhelming the men in sheer number, it ain’t surprising that he gets first place. His recent exploits in the anime have certainly earned him a lot of praise from fans and has gotten him a whole lot more fan girls.
Meanwhile, Rin Hoshizora, who got the top position in the male voters category only got #8, behind her sempai, Kotori, who seems to have gotten a boost from female voters as she beats her kouhai.
9 out of the eleven entrants in the Top 10 (or 11) are males with a whole lot of female-oriented series like UtaPri and Free!, which really begs the question on what might have been the result if the genders were even. So who would you want to spend Christmas with?
