Glad to see Slouchy McDouche outside the top 3 and at least a bit of P2 representation. Looks like the Japanese aren't very fond of Junpei.

Hmm... on one hand, this is another example of Japanese "favorite character" lists that seem more than a little questionable, and which are heavily weighed towards "who I currently remember the most". And seriously, Yu at #1? So players think THEY are the best character?

On the other hand, Junpei is nowhere on this list. Japan is redeemed.

I'm more surprised that Aegis is sixth considering the fan pandering she gets.

Personally I thought he was great. He has a lot of character, despite being silent. I'd say you have an argument for P3 MC being anywhere on that list, though. He was pretty dull.

I don't even remember anything about Yukari

I'm not sure about Kanji, I never got him higher than rank 2 or 3 because I kept forgetting about him (he's in the other building I think) and I wanted to max the other personas... sorry Kanji! Maybe in a new playthrough

I know.... but in Japan for some reason MC is always the top favorite. Yu is there probably for P4Arena? It must have boosted his popularity.

And yeah, Yu's story in P4A was the most boring of all....
