Last Year, Weekly Shounen Champion also conducted an official character popularity poll, and looks like the results for #1 has been retained. With his long and green hair, Yuusuke Makishima, whose unorthodox cycling style, has  clearly won over fans as this “Peak Spider” has been regarded as one of the best climbers in Japan. He pulls one from under fellow fan-favorite, Yasutomo Arakita, who has won many character polls.

So who do you think should be #1?
