Do you have a favourite female character in anime? Maybe you'll find her in the results of this Japanese poll. Maybe not!
Website Charapedia recently published the results of its questionnaire that asked ten thousand anime fans which woman in anime they thought was cool. This wasn't a poll for cutesy anime characters! But rather, for strong, powerful women in anime.
Out of those polled, 51 per cent of the participants were women and 49 per cent were men. A whopping 74.7 per cent were in their teens and 20s, while the rest were age 30 and up.
