We just celebrated Father’s Day last weekend, which is why Japanese anime news site, animeanime.jp, recently held a special Father’s Day poll. In their poll, they asked 1,171 fans to vote for which male anime character would make the Best Dad. Of these 1,171 voters, 60% were female, and the website only revealed the Top 10 in their poll. The poll only asked for characters who aren’t fathers YET, and here are the results:

10 – Ryuuji Takasu (ToraDora)

9/8 (tie) – Shota Kazehaya (Kimi ni Todoke) and Archer (Fate/Stay Night)

7 – Taihei Doma (Himouto! Umaru-chan)

6 – Piccolo (Dragon Ball)

5 – Edward Elric (Fullmetal Alchemist)

4 – Oota-kun (Tanaka-kun Is Always Listless)

3 – Kirito (Sword Art Online)

2 – Daichi Sawamura (Haikyuu!!)

1 – Makoto Tachibana (Free!)

It seems like a lot of fans agree that Makoto Tachibana would make a great father. After all, he’s pretty warm and kind. The same can be said to Daichi Sawamura, whose leadership skills are essential in the role of being a father.

Meanwhile, Kirito, who acts as Yui’s “father” in Sword Art Online, took third place. Well, since Yui isn’t an actual person, but an AI, Kirito doesn’t seem to count as a father, that’s why he’s in this poll. But the biggest surprise of all is Piccolo only placing 6th! The guy actually acts more of a father to Gohan than Goku ever will, and his fatherhood and babysitting skills are top notch. As Guardians of the Galaxy’s Yondu would put it, “He may be your father, but he ain’t your daddy”.
