Last month, it was the Gundam franchise which grabbed hold and took over Newtype Magazine’s monthly rankings. This month, it’s the detective anime, Bungou Stray Dogs turn to dominate.

1. Osamu Dazai (Bungou Stray Dogs)
2. Sakunosuke Oda (Bungou Stray Dogs)
3. Chuuya Nakahara (Bungou Stray Dogs)

3. Saber (Fate series)
4. Mitsuha Miyamizu (your name.)

10 – Izetta the Last Witch
A total of five Bungou Stray Dogs characters made it to the Male Top 10 rankings, while four characters made it to the Top 10 Female rankings. The anime also topped the anime, male and female character rankings as well. If that’s not sheer domination, then I don’t know what is!
Newtype Rankings stalwarts like Kirito, Asuna, and the Monogatari series also made a strong showing, though our Lord and Saviour, Kira Yamato once again dropped out of the male Top 10. Don’t worry though, he will return after three issues or so, like he ALWAYS does. As prophesied, he shall rise again!
