We often see anime character popularity polls popping out every now and then in a few anime blog sites. This one, found from a Japanese ranking site AnimeOne, has just released its ranking results for the most popular male anime characters for this season. There’s no female rankings out from the site yet, but hopefully it’ll be out soon! Below is a simple compilation of those who made it to the top 25. There are about 40 entries, but I thought keeping them at 25 max is just fine. If you want to view the full list of the characters, refer to the list after the image (note: if the image appears small for you, click on it to view the full size version):
