Love Live, Aikatsu, and The [email protected] have been leading the pack when it comes to idol shows, but fans are falling in love with male-led idol shows, too. Series like Uta no Prince-sama, B-Project, and The [email protected] Side M show that there's a place in anime for male idol groups.
But which existing anime characters would fans like to see make the switch to idol singers?
Anime! Anime! ran a poll asking this question, and more than 150 people responded, with 80% being female. So who were their top ten?
10. Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise
9. Gundam franchise
8. Yuri!!! on ICE
7. Attack on Titan
6. Kuroko's Basketball
5. The Heroic Legend of Arslan
3. Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion
2. Bungou Stray Dogs
1. Free! Iwatobi Swim Club
Are there any you think should have made the list? Let us know in the comments!
