The last official popularity vote was done at the end of last year. Since then a lot has happened in the manga, as well there was the anime premiere. One would wonder what might happen if a poll is done this year…
Before, someone has listed the number of pixiv artworks for each character of SnK. Levi clearly came first, follow by a (quite) distant second for Eren, then Mikasa, then, Armin, and Jean. On pixiv, one can also look at the number of views for a specific character related (art)works.
light yellow = Eren, yellow = Mikasa, blue = Jean.
Everyone has a drop over the time, but Eren and Mikasa have a more noticeable drop. In fact, since Jean’s drop has been relatively minor, his view count is starting to eclipse that of Mikasa’s.
Using the # of artworks as an indicator, the top 5 will be, in order, Levi, Eren, Mikasa, Armin and Jean.
Using the view count #s, the order becomes, Levi, Eren, Jean, Mikasa, and Armin.
Levi’s not shown in the above charts? Don’t worry, his view counts is in the million club. 😛
Oh, and I did also look at other characters stats, but these five do have the highest numbers of all.
chapter 51, the long wait will soon be over – just 2~3 more days.
