■ The immovable top rank! The popular characters showed their popularity this year as well
The first place goes to Nakahara Chuuya from "Bungou Stary Dogs". The support rating is about 40%, and he took first place for three consecutive years.
Various comments regarding the screaming scenes, the acting which interweaves between hard-line and moderate lines, theme song, etc., were received. For example, "The gap between his coldheartedness as an executive of the Port Mafia, and the cuteness when being teased by Dazai-san, is irresistible," "His screaming when running amok with his ability "Upon the Tainted Sorrow", is just like a beautiful singing voice," and "This is the character that makes me fall for Kishou-san. I also become a fan of GRANRODEO after hearing the opening theme!"
There were also comments from fans regarding the poet, which the character was a model of, "When I heard voice of Nakahara Chuuya's voice by Kishou-san, I felt as if Nakahara Chuuya from memo of Kobayashi Hideo, and Yasuhara Yoshihiro, was revived," and "Nakahara Chuuya was born in Yamaguchi Prefecture, so I was surprised when a voice actor from the same birthplace had gotten the role."
The second place goes to Shinomiya Natsuki from "Uta no Prince-sama". The support rating is about 15%, and he kept his ranking for three consecutive years.
We have received comments regarding the beautiful voice after he changes his character's personality, including "Only Kishou-san can sing in a powerful, cool voice despite the character's kind and delicate personality. He even does a good job of acting the cool, sharp personality of the second persona, Satsuki," and "It seems to be difficult in voicing two types of character, but I like how he appears to show the cuteness, and coolness easily. And his singing voice! He also displays a singing voice that fits the music genius, Natsuki..." At the same time, a comment was mentioning the popularity comes from the distinction acting when compare with other characters, which are "The character is a cute, mischievous, and fluffy type but I enjoyed hearing the voices that are rare from the others."
Third place goes to Jean Kirstein from "Attack on Titan". The support rating is about 9% and he remains at the third place for two consecutive years.
Comments received are, "He is facing the Titan's threat despite being aware of his own weakness. I also like how he has human-like feeling," "He is a character filled with emotional in the original work but I think he emotional had gone up a level after being voiced by Kishou-san," and "Among the other irregular character, he is the most humane, and had the most feelings, making him cool. I feel empathy unintentionally."
Don't miss out on emotional acting from the humane character in "'Attack on Titan' The Final Season".
■Let's introduce the other comments!!
Regarding Tsukasa from "pet", "The love filled with hatred, suffering, pain, distorted... I feel a fresh feeling building up every time I watched 'pet'," and "I am attracted to his acting as he is able to express the bare voice of a human."
Regarding Tsukimori Len from "La Corda d'Oro", "The singing of the character's song differs from the GRANRODEO's singing, and Taniyama-san's comfortable's voice is a perfect match with this strong-willed character. It makes me tremble."
Regarding Sakamoto Ryouma from "Bakumatsu ROCK", "This is a character that is able to make full use of Taniyama-san's rock personality. Even the story is also 'Rock!'."
Regarding Natsume Kenji (known as Tobi) from "Ahiru no Sora", "I can felt the coolness and interesting part from each of his strong Hiroshima dialect's line. Kishou-san's acting while using a dialect is quite charming, and it makes me fall for him more. I wish he could continue acting passionate, showy guys!", shows that there is a vote received for an ongoing title.
