Re:Zero may be the hottest anime today, but it hasn’t really been as dominant as one might expect in Newtype Magazine’s Newtype Rankings. With its popularity, the series could take the #1 spots in the rankings easily, however, other series like Macross Delta, Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress, and Bungou Stray Dogs faring a lot better so far. That changes with the October 2016 rankings however, as the anime finally takes a couple of first place finishes.

  2. Kirito (Sword Art Online)

  5. Ikoma (Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress)
  6. Guts (Berserk)

…and here we are just wondering why Kira Yamato is still out. But don’t worry though, we know he’ll be back.
