"Sword Art Online" Heroes Repeat "Newtype" Character Rankings Lead

Speaking of SAO's power-duo, Japanese Twitter has been going nuts over the suggestion that Kirito may have been cheating

While anime magazine Newtype has recently been swapping the leading positions in its monthly character rankings, you can't stop the Sword Art Online juggernaut. The Ordinal Scale anime movie is apparently worth at least two months at the #1 spot as Kirito and Asuna topped the lists again in the new May issue.

 

Gundam IBO got a respectable send-off too, while Tanya Degurechaff stood tall, and a certain Feline Friend found her way into the rankings.
