Japanese Medarot Popularity Poll 2012 Results

30 07 2012

Over on the Furuani Max channel on Nico Nico Douga Horumarin and his assistant voice actress in training, Iku Arino have revealed the results of the 2012 Japanese Medarot Popularity Polls held earlier this year. Some of the results are surprising, while many are not:

1. Metabee (930 points)
2. Rokusho (650 points)
3. Arcbeetle (480 points)
4. Ikki Tenyrou (440 points)
5. Henry / Hikaru (410 points)
6. Mega Emperor / God Emperor (380 points)
7. Robo Emperor / Beast Master (320 points)
8. Sumilidon / Smilodonad (240 points)
8. Phantom Renegade / Kaitou Retort (240 points)
10. Shinzan (230 points)
10. Black Beetle (230 points)

Franchise favourites like Metabee, and Rokusho easily top the list, but even characters like Shinzan who only appeared in Medarot 5 cracked the list. Did your favourite make the list? Personally, I’m disappointed by the lack of Mr. Referee!

If you’d like to see the entire series of videos where Horumarin and Arino unveil, speak, and then sketch the winning characters you can check out a playlist of it all here. As well, during these Nico Nico broadcasts Horumarin and Arino also went through a variety of Medarot 7 character reveals which we’ll post in another post.
