Japanese Readers Choose Sexiest Shonen Jump Villains

Two dastardly dreamboats tie for top spot

As befits its action-packed, high-tension stories, Weekly Shonen Jump also boasts a diverse array of charismatic and diabolical villains. But which of them are sexy? There's no denying the appeal (for some at least) of sultry villainy, and the Japanese survey site Goo Ranking polled 500 Shonen Jump readers on the villains they thought were sexiest. The fanbase was evenly split by gender and polling took place from April 22 to 26.

The results don't exactly answer the question "Who is sexiest?," since two characters tied for first place. Here are the top 20 results:

1. DIO BRANDO, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure (71 votes)
1. HISOKA, Hunter × Hunter (71 votes)

3. LIGHT, Death Note (57 votes)
4. Raoh, Fist of the North Star (46 votes)
5. Takasugi, Gintama (40 votes)
6. Shishio, Rurouni Kenshin (39 votes)
7. Mukuro, Katekyo Hitman Reborn! (30 votes)
8. Grimmjow, Bleach (29 votes)
9. Souther, Fist of the North Star (26 votes)
10. Sensui, YuYu Hakusho (24 votes)
11. Aizen, Bleach (23 votes)
11. Kars, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure (23 votes)
13. Chrollo, Hunter × Hunter (21 votes)
14. Crocodile, One Piece (20 votes)
15. Toguro (younger), YuYu Hakusho (17 votes)
16. XANXUS, Katekyo Hitman Reborn! (16 votes)
16. Funny Valentine, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure (16 votes)
18. Byakuran, Katekyo Hitman Reborn! (15 votes)
18. Saga, Saint Seiya (15 votes)
18. Pucci, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure (15 votes)

About a month ago, Goo Ranking also surveyed Shonen Jump readers on which manga they found sexiest.
