A popularity poll held by Shonen Jump revealed the ten most popular characters in Chainsaw Man. This is the second character popularity poll held for the series, with over 620,000 votes tallied. Additionally, results from the first poll also factor in, which reveal what slots characters had occupied previously. [Thanks, Ryokutya2089!]
The top ten characters in the Chainsaw Man popularity poll are:
- Aki Hayakawa
- Hirofumi Yoshida
- Angel Devil
- Kobeni Higashiyama
Aki Hayakawa, the winner of this popularity poll, previously ranked as the third most popular character. Makima however, retained her position as the second most popular character in Chainsaw Man, as Power dropped down to the third most popular character. The results mostly remained the same, with a handful of characters making an exception. For example, Hirofumi Yoshida jumped from tenth most popular character to sixth most popular character. The popularity poll extends to show the top twenty most popular characters, which includes Quanxi, Beam, and Kobeni’s Car.
