My Hero Academia has revealed the surprising results of the newest popularity poll it has launched for the characters in Japan! Fans of the franchise have had quite a lot to celebrate over the past year as not only did Kohei Horikoshi kick off the Final Act of the manga, but the anime released its fifth season and third feature film release as well. My Hero Academia: World Heroes’ Mission was not only a success in the box office, but was an even huger hit with fans in Japan than initially expected. This was especially true for the movie’s main new addition.
My Hero Academia: World Heroes’ Mission introduced fans to a new addition, Rody Soul, and it turns out that this character has been such a hit with the fans that he managed to sneak his way into the top ten results for the newest popularity poll in Japan. Because while it’s once again dominated by characters fans love seeing in the manga and anime, Rody Soul managed to make it to the ninth place on the list over many of the other previously established fan favorite characters. Check out the results as spotted by @aitaikimochi on Twitter:

The results of My Hero Academia’s newest (and seventh overall) popularity poll in Japan break down as follows:

My Hero Academia: World Heroes’ Mission was launched in theaters earlier this year, but has yet to set an official home video release just yet. That means there are still many fans who don’t know why an original movie character has been as popular or even more so than many of the other previous favorites. Funimation officially describes the film as such, “In My Hero Academia: World Heroes’ Mission, U.A. High School students Izuku Midoriya, Shoto Todoroki, and Katsuki Bakugo face the greatest crisis in My Hero Academia history, with only two hours to save the world! During their internship with the number one Pro Hero Endeavor Agency, Deku and his new friend Rody find themselves wanted nationwide for a crime they didn’t commit. Can Deku and his friends stop Humarise’s global plans of eliminating all Quirks?”
