Is bungou stray dogs so popular in Japan?

It is popular for sure, but it also helps that a Bungou Stray Dogs movie released in theaters on March 3rd. That probably helped quite a bit.

Thank you. I was wondering why the heck there was some sudden resurgence for the title.

Not sure if Dazai would be happy or not about this.
But the changes that he can his double suicide would probably increase.

Thank you for this!! I'm honestly still surprised to see Kirito on popular lists. Is it not as universally hated on in Japan as it is in the west then? Must not be... EDIT I haz been corrected. It's mainly youtubers and redditers who hate on it then I guess? Ahh well. I still like it XD Also glad to see Syaoran-kun on the top 10, even if he's not high up lol
Happy to see Sakura-chan up top on the girl's list though.

Japan loves OP protagonists.

I'm impressed that Jesus Yamato from Gundam Seed fell off the top 10.

SAO isn't hated in the west at all. Some YouTube critics just get popular and famous by selectively shitting in the things that everyone likes and then it becomes a meme for all those who want to be edgy

And Takagi is ranked higher than 02. I can die in peace now.

I am upset that no one from Yuru Camp or A Place Further Than the Universe got on though. They're all far superior to 02 in every way

The votes have probably gotten split up, considering the popularity of those shows. That's what happens when I show got multiple good characters I guess.

These lists are usually a month or so behind.

2. Death March kara Hajimaru Isekai Kyousoukyoku
How Death March is that popular ? I love the LN but, still, more popular than Overlord and Yuru camp ?

Is that girls und panzer one the start of the new set of movies?

No, it's this.
The list only goes up to March 18, and that movie was released on March 23.

Dazai is back again it seems, nice

3) Violet Evergarden
4) Nero Claudius
5) Saber
Two different Saberfaces above OG Saber? I never thought I'd see the day.
9) Zero Two
This continues to surprise me. She seems like the kind of character who'd absolutely dominate polls like this.

Considering how many popular franchises with fan favorite characters there are I already see it as an achievement for a character of a new original show to even appear in the ranking at all.

Asuna was dominating the lists for quite some time, as far as I know, and now she's lower than Zero Two. What it means is that the things surely change with time, and it's not like Zero Two has no chance to become number one later. It doesn't mean that she's not popular - the people just prefer someone else for now.

Really? Are these polls THAT horrible? As soon as Fairy Dance started Asuna because an absolute sham of a heroine. Pissed me off because she was an awesome heroine in Aincrad.

You can't really compete with a character that comes from a book with millions of units sold. It's like SAO > everything else combined > 2nd place.
Take a look at Saber too. I bet even 10 years later she will have her place on this list, thanks to the enormous franchise started by TYPE-MOON.

Sees Sakura at #1 and Lelouch at #2 The world is at peace today

Oh yeah there was a Bungou strays dogs movie recently, and it's really nice to see Sakura at no. 1.

Kirito ranked higher than Gintoki :(

3) Violet Evergarden (Violet Evergarden)
Lovely to see a mixup overall from the usual Kirito/Asuna. In particular, v. glad to see Violet appreciated in Japan.

Surprising that Sakura is in 1st and Violet in 3rd (and takagi 8th), when the fan favourite is "only 5th". On other hand Zero Two is in 9th, I thought she would be more popular to atleast reach top 5 or something.

My boi Gintoki still in the top 5, makes me happy.
