Last month, Code Geass surprised everyone as the series dominated last month’s Newtype Rankings. For the March 2017 Newtype Rankings, it seems that another not-so-new series is dominating.
- Archer (Fate)
- Lelouch Lamperouge (Code Geass)
- Shirou Emiya (Fate)
- Kirito (Sword Art Online)
- Gilgamesh (Fate)
- Koyomi Araragi (Monogatari)
- Osamu Dazai (Bungou Stray Dogs)
- Victor Nikiforov (Yuri!! on Ice)
- Mikazuki Augus (Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans)
- Kazuma Satou (KonoSuba)
- Saber (Fate)
- Rin Tohsaka (Fate)
- Mash Kyrielight (Fate)
- Shiki Tougi (Kara no Kyoukai)
- Shinobu Oshino (Monogatari)
- Asuna (Sword Art Online)
- Illyasviel von Einzbern (Fate)
- Tsubasa Hanekawa (Monogatari)
- Sakura Matou (Fate)
- C.C. (Code Geass)
Now that’s a lot of Fate characters! A Total of eight characters from the Fate franchise have made it to the Top 10 of the two Newtype character rankings for March 2017, even taking all Top 3 spots of the female rankings.
Meanwhile, Monogatari also did well, as did Code Geass. In fact, most of the entries are some not-so-new franchises like Fate, Code Geass, and Monogatari. The most recent anime that made it to the rankings are KonoSuba, Bungou Stray Dogs, Iron-Blooded Orphans, and Yuri!! on Ice.
