■Let’s introduce other comments!
About Ban from “Seven Deadly Sins”, “Van can easily be misunderstood as a harsh guy, but in fact, he has a very kind heart, and Suzuki-san’s voice suits him well.”, and “I really like when Tatsuhisa-san’s voice when they callcalls Meliodas ‘Dancho'”.
About Kibana from “Pokemon”, “He’s usually mild-mannered and dripping, but when it comes to battle, he becomes so cool because of his ferocious and slick. Tatsuhisa-san’s voice and image were perfect.”
About Alan Stuart from “My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom!”, “He hates to be weak because of honesty, but he is insensitive. I also like how he didn’t even realize his feelings for Catalina, the main character. Above all, I was dead by his laughing and a shy face.”
About Takasugi Shinsaku from “Bakumatsu Rock”, the musical title, “The character song ‘Let’s live’ is the best.”
In the 2020 version of the survey, Tachibana Makoto from “Free!” shows the same popularity, along with characters from the latest works such as “The Misfit of Demon King Academy”, “Hamefura” and new works such as Kibana of “Pokemon” appeared this year.
