A familiar face leaped back to the top of Newtype's character ranking in its February 2015 issues. After being the cover girl in the January issue, Evangelion's Rei Ayanami recaptured the female listing for the anime magazine's new issue, with Asuka also mixing it up with the Fate/stay night and Sword Art Online heroines. Shinji and Kaworu also placed on the male side. More after the jump.
