In Japan, school clubs, and in particular, sports clubs, often have managers who take care of the club’s well being, from making sure that club members actually practice to handing them towels after an intense game.

For this week’s poll, Charapedia took a look at several anime club managers, and ranked the most charming of them. They asked 10,000 fans (44.2% male, 55.8% female) about which anime manager is the one they find most charming, and out of the 29 entrants, only the Top 15 were named, and they are:

15 – Aki Kino (Inazuma Eleven)

14 – Mamori Anezaki (Eyeshield 21)

13 – Haruno Yoshikawa (Ace of Diamond)

12 – Haruka Koga (H2)

11 – Minami Asakura (Touch)

10 – Miki Kanzaki (Yowamushi Pedal)

9 – Chiyo Shino’oka (Big Wind-Up!)

8 – Iroha Isshiki (My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU. Too)

7 – Minami Kawashima (Moshidora)

6 – Gou Matsuoka (Free!)

5 – Riko Aida (Kuroko’s Basketball)


4 – Ayako (Slam Dunk)


3 – Yachi Hitoka (Haikyuu!)


2 – Satsuki Momoi (Kuroko’s Basketball)


1 – Kiyoko Shimizu (Haikyuu!)


As expected, club managers from sports anime dominated the Top 15, with only Oregairu’s Iroha, who is not only the Student Council President of Seibu High, but also the Football Club manager, the only one who is not from a series considered to be a sports anime. And also as expected is that the managers from the three most popular sports anime would dominate, with both Haikyuu! and Kuroko’s Basketball taking four of the Top 5 spots, with the #3 spot going to lam Dunk’s Ayako.
