Fans Pick Which Anime Character They Want for a Boss

posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Psycho-Pass, Gintama, JoJo's characters rank

A new poll on Anime! Anime! asked its readers to choose which anime character they would most like to have as a boss. The site put the poll up in honor of "Boss Day" on October 16. The participants were predominately women (75%) and mostly teens and young adults. The top choice is a pick I think most of us can agree with, the determined and capable Akane Tsunemori.

Akane is an inspector in the dystopian series and charged with hunting down individuals whose crime coefficients fall into dangerous areas. She's partnered with Shinya Kogami, a former detective and now Enforcer for the Public Safety Bureau. However it's fellow Enforcer Nobuchika Ginoza that took the second place spot in the poll. Ginoza seems cool and collected but he's a man that feels strongly for those he cares about, even when it cost him his spot as an Inspector.

The full list results are:

  1. Akane Tsunemori (Psycho-Pass)
  2. Nobuchika Ginoza (Psycho-Pass)
  3. Gintoki Sakata (Gintama) tied for 3rd
  4. Lucky Beast (Kemono Friends) tied for 3rd
  5. Wakaba (Kemurikusa)
  6. Rei Furuya/Tooru Amuro/Bourbon (Detective Conan)
  7. Edward Newgate/Whitebeard (One Piece) tied for 7th
  8. Shinya Kogami (Psycho-Pass) tied 7th
  9. Yoshiyuki HATORI (Sekai Ichi Hatsukoi - The World's Greatest First Love) tied for 7th
  10. Toshirō Hijikata (Gintama) tied for 7th
  11. Yukichi Fukuzawa (Bungo Stray Dogs) tied for 7th
  12. Kagaya Ubuyashiki (Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba) tied for 12th
  13. Doppo Kunikida (Bungo Stray Dogs) tied for 12th
  14. Kondo Isao (Gintama) tied for 12th
  15. Bruno Bucciarati (JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Golden Wind) tied for 12th
  16. Levi (Attack on Titan) tied for 12th
  17. Risa Aoyanagi (Psycho-Pass) tied for 17th
  18. Shinsuke Takasugi (Gintama) tied for 17th
  19. Choromatsu (Mr. Osomatsu) tied for 17th
  20. Tsukuyo (Gintama) tied for 17th
  21. Lelouch Lamperouge (Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion) tied for 17th
  22. Sayo Hikawa (BanG Dream!) tied for 17th
  23. Frieza (Dragon Ball Z) tied for 17th
  24. Prosciutto (JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Golden Wind) tied for 17th
  25. Tomomi Masaoka (Psycho-Pass) tied for 17th
  26. Roy Mustang (Fullmetal Alchemist) tied for 17th

A poll on this topic in 2015 found that plenty of people like the idea of a domineering presence with the likes of Attack on Titan's Levi and and Dragon Ball Z's Frieza in the top five.
