DBS Goku voted 8th most popular character

Post by DragonBallFoodie » Sat Sep 09, 2017 3:18 am

http://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-news/2 ... r-rankings

1 Lelouch Lamperouge Code Geass
2 Kirito Sword Art Online
3 Suzaku Kururugi Code Geass
4 Koyomi Araragi Monogatari series
5 Archer Fate/stay night
6 Gintoki Sakata Gintama
7 Rider of Black Fate/Apocrypha
8 Goku Son Dragon Ball Super
9 Levi Attack on Titan Season 2
10 Shirou Emiya Fate/stay night

Considering the poll shows characters from the same series more than once (Fate, Code Geass), I'm not too sure how good the poll is.

But Goku's on it so who cares. :P

Actually, I think it's kind of impressive Gokû made the board.

NewType's an otaku magazine, right? Dragon Ball is more of an all ages show that airs Sunday morning, not a late night otaku series.

For Gokû and One Piece to make any of those rankings just shows how crossing the focus group barrier they can be.

I'm more surprised that people like Suzaku. He was a terrible character. :eh:

Before people use this Magazine's popularity poll to justify their dislike of DBS Goku, I direct you to look at Kirito in 2nd place.

Form Fuji TV history of Japan special..
It's loaded with good shots if you know where to look!

I wonder how kirito managed to get 2nd, he wasn't that bad but definitely not 2nd place material..

Yeah, nobody is moving Goku from his MC spot anytime soon :lol:

Also, he beat Levi? Wow. I mean, sure, Levi had like 5 seconds of screen-time this season, but still.

I think so. Gokû making the list despite being from a Shounen Jump series is impressive. Enough late night anime fans think Gokû's got enough otaku appeal to where he made the top 10.

Astolfo is best heroine

It's cool that Shirou basically appears twice in the poll.

Weird that Jeanne is placed higher than Mordred, I don't see many people who like Jeanne.

I'm surorised he wasn't higher on the list. Him and Luffy are like Japanese masscots at this point.

Hilarious, let's make a joke about a new generation being screwed because people like X fictional character in a random magazine ranked higher than another, real mature. Let's forget about all the real shit happening in the real world this is FAR more worrying? Please. :roll:

He's not THAT bad, he's just the popular face of obvious annoying self-inserts that try too hard to be cool. His character is an inconsistent mess that changes to suit what the plot needs from him.

How is it even "joke"? Oh f**cking hilarious, let us mock some people's opinions and say a whole generation is screwed. So funny. :lolno:

Anyway, didn't Goku also win a recent other poll some TV thing with like 12,000 votes? People are tired of Goku shtick really isn't looking to true...

More or less share these feelings, I touched upon it a bit in my previous post..
It was a chore to go through it, I was already burnt out by the time ALFheim Online was in motion..
There are also people who swear it's the greatest masterpiece ever and some outright can't stand it..

Preach! It's already impressive he's the only there from the more mainstream battle shonens and also above someone like Levi, considering the audience who votes in these polls.
A world without Dragon Ball is just meh.
