Japanese Otaku Pick Their Favorite Anime Character by Season of the Year

Unusual question prompts some interesting responses

In honor of the winter solstice, here's an interesting series of polls. Biglobe Anime Rankings recently asked readers to name their favorite anime character associated with the four seasons. "Associated with" could be based on the character's name or nature, the theme of the series they come from, or even their color scheme. The ambiguous rules made the results that much more fun.
