I was expecting actual lists and this article was really disappointing and comes off kind of lazy after the 80s. It bunches characters as "appearing" on the lists of those decades, doesn't say when or where they placed. This would have been more informative if it had simply been a timeline of the top 1 or even 3 girls of each year with no other information, and would have taken less time to read and provided more information.

Post 80s it gets really repetitive with still recognizable girls appearing over and over with some shifts. It helps if you have the graphic open while reading but there's not exactly an elegant way to embed it.

I did not expect to see Inazuma Eleven at all, much less claiming 3 of the top 5 two years in a row. And what's Haruka Nanami doing up there? Reverse-harem heroines can be best girl?

The tyranny of Lacus Clyne, such dark days those early to mid 2000's were.

Interesting that they used the modern version of Belldandy instead of the 1993 ova one.

Gundam SEED doesn't have characters. It has character concepts. It doesn't have characters themselves. Most "characters" have no discernible personality past their basic use in the plot.

This is why CE era Gundam is so soulless and leaves zero impression.

Yeah, that's...something. Very Happy Clearly Scheris is best girl.

(Guess we should be glad it wasn't Mimori...)

The last five years include mostly girls from series with a large number of female fans, possibly a reflection of the changed subscriber base of the magazine.

No mention of Rem in the 2010's, "list" is bad.
