Anime may (for obvious reasons) have a Japanese focus, but series will often showcase characters from around the world — and beyond! News site Anime! Anime! recently ran a poll to see which Chinese characers fans like best. (For their purposes, a character had to actually be known to speak Chinese and dress in at least a somewhat Chinese fashion to count.)

 

The first half of the poll focused on male characters. Voters could choose from 20 names supplied or write in their own if someone they liked wasn’t listed. Overall, 522 people responded, with approximately 60% being female and 70% of the voters being under 30.

 

So who were the top ten?

Many of you have pointed out that Ranma is not Chinese. We noticed that, too. We’re not sure why the poll creators on Anime! Anime! decided to include him, either. But apparently he was the only character to earn more than 100 votes. Does that mean the poll creators didn’t realize he’s not Chinese? Or was he such an overwhelming write-in that they had to put him first? We’re… honestly not sure.

 

Did your faves make the list? Is there anyone you feel was left out?
