#10 Makoto Tachibana from Free! 107
Gintama's wide popularity managed to get 4 characters in the top 10 including, Gintoki landing at the #1 anime boyfriend spot (where is Katsura??). Anyone suprised that the highest ranking ball player from Kuroko's Basketball was not Kuroko or any of Generation of Miracle member but Hawk Eye Takao? He is often described as "HSK" in Japan, which is a short for "High Spec Kareshi (Kareshi is boyfriend in Japanese)" and many fans see a lot of boyfriend potential in his devoted supporting style he displays with Midorima.
The strongest of the humankind, Levi landed in the third spot, while 2 characters from Hakuouki made it in the top 10 and the anime has the second film at the theaters in Japan right now. There are many many characters that received votes, but didn't make top 10 which shows the diversity of tastes in the community. Who would you vote for? Come back later tonight for Top 10 Anime Boyfriend poll result!
