I doubt that really means anything. Newtype's character polls have had Kira and Lacus from Gundam SEED consistently appearing in the Top Ten for years after SEED and Destiny finished without any justification for doing so.

And you can also explain Touma's appearance in the polls to the newly-released movie and not just his role in Railgun.

Not to mention Genei o Kakeru Taiyou definitely didn't get that big of an interest boost all of a sudden among the anime community at large.

These ranking/surveys are dime-a-dozen and can't really be used to support any argument other than what it so happened the particular magazine's userbase happened to write-in about at the time. You can't draw any broader conclusions from it.
You are taking my post too seriously relentless..... =______=

Genei Ryodan wo Kakeru Taiyou, despite spectacularly bombing in sales, makes it to first place?
That ranking is a pile of horseshit.

But the movie was out months ago... He should have been on it at the height of it's popularity.

Is this his first reappearance or a streak? I noticed a second number beside it implying a previous ranking...

This admittedly has nothing to do with Railgun, but what's your source for this? The site I use to keep track of anime DVD/Blu-Ray sales doesn't have any info on Genei, one way or the other.

But anyway, I wouldn't put a great deal of stock in this poll. As relentlessflame pointed out, it has some glaring omissions as it is.

Those are fighting words I actually can't stand it... it's too intense for me

And SAO is definitely pretty mainstream as a series...

Also... why isn't Touma super popular right now considering all of his good roles recently, is it the trolling and because people don't realize that its been prevented?

this is a bit OT, but something's been bugging me for ages.

My knowledge on all things japanese is lacking, but for some reason whenever I hear Kuroko speaking, I have the feeling there's some regional accent going on there, can you confirm this?

i think he is considering the fact that he only lost too attack on titans character during the time he was ranked 2nd or 3rd in newtype polls. i wouldn't take it to seriously though since AOT is the most hyped anime this year. but super popular? i don't think so, kamijou has a pretty big fanbase but noting that special(hes very popular but not on that level).

Before someone reposts it here, there was released some new information regarding Febli, Janie, STUDY's motives and the last episode.
I believe it was from some Dengeki's magazine, but it contained spoilers, so I posted in the spoilers_allowed thread : here

While I'm ok with it, I can't help but notice irregularities around the chest area.

Motto Marutto Railgun 4 is out (with eng. subtitles)

It felt like watching Gintama, but it didn't fit well with Railgun characters.
Sadly I didn't get most of the jokes, so it was a poor episode for me.
