Top Otokonoko Fight For The Hearts Of Fans As Japanese Watchers Vote For Their Favorite

Here's a somewhat fraught subject.....

Here's a somewhat fraught subject. Goo Rankings asked Japanese anime fans to name their favorite otokonoko - a term more applicable to otaku culture, fictional characters and performative appearance than gender identity IRL. In a new poll, they asked Japanese fans to name their favorite male character who looks or dresses in a female fashion.

 

Classic characters did well, including the ex-assassin from Mineo Maya's 1978 ongoing Patalliro! - with a male character who has gotten pregnant multiple times.

 

Consistent with Goo's methodology, they collected 500 votes from fans in their 20s and 30s. 250 from male votes and 250 from female voters.
