First place Sougo Okita topped the list by almost a hundred points, but after that, there weren't very many votes between each name. The number of votes drop below 75 with #10. Below 50 with #15, below 40 votes with #18, and only falls below 25 votes with the final entry at #23. Anything below 22 votes didn't make the list.
So what Japanese character do you think handed out the "tough love" the best?
