It's what you expect in such a poll though, because there's new characters every season that will make their way onto the poll, pushing out old characters.

As for the Macross poll, she'll stay in the top 3 for a long long time.

She certainly outdone Rei in terms of polling durability

Yes u right... Sorry what I meant is the tv series ver... Kawamori rarely make a macross tv series...only 3 series for 26 years

It is like having 1 tv series every 10 years...X3 ... While gundam have so many every 3-5 years..

But anyway I feel proud that I was born in 84 hehehe because 25 years macross anniversary feels like celebrating my 25th birthday last year... X3

Kawamori is so kind...he gave me sheryl as a present LOL

Yeah, Sheryl is back. I guess the movie hype is working, as Ranka is back, too. ^^

So glad Sheryl made it back into the top 10, plus having Ranka there is a nice bonus.

What about the male top 10 list?

What the heck? K-On has the top four!? Give me a break here. Minmay totally beats Yui.

I watched K-ON, and they're the last bunch of characters i'd rank that high on the Newtype poll. Ah well, just going by the target audience of the magazine, it's no surprise.

Just like to see Sheryl and Ranka back on the list.

From Image Topic:
Spoiler for Previous Discussion:


I chose my words poorly it would seem. I just wanted to point out that Minmay is better than Ranka is all.

And I rate Sheryl as number one, with Minmay and Misa tied for second. That's right, tied.

Yeah, but Minmay is THE iconic Macross singer, whose influence permeates every Macross sequel. Sheryl has better songs (except DYRL, that's one of the loveliest songs ever, IMO), but Minmay stands taller in the grand scheme of things.

Also, Minmay saved humanity. That's nothing to be sneezed at.

Basically going to echo Yot-chan's post yet again, but yeah those reasons he stated are just some of the reasons why i'd rank Minmay as number one in the franchise. Plus she was one of my first crushes back in the days of Robotech (/me shudders) until i was finally able to experience SDF Macross.

I still adore Sheryl, so i don't want anyone thinking otherwise. :3

If the poll topic was about who my "favorite character" was, I probably wouldn't rate them based off of how influential they were. After all, you can be influential without being particularly likable. For that matter, you don't really need to have that much of an actual "character" in order to be influential plot-wise.

I also suspect that the results may have something to do with the fact that the recent surge of general interest towards Macross isn't necessarily built off of twenty plus years of nostalgia.

What is impressive, however, is that there still is a core base of support for the SDFM characters after all this time.

Very true, but people choose all kinds of reasons to like characters: physical appearance, personality, role in the plot, personal resonance...why exclude influence?

(And anyway, I find Minmay to be EXTREMELY likable and charismatic. And thoroughly adorable.)

Yeah, Frontier brought the newbies in big time, that's for sure. And yet, I don't really see the polls in Macross Ace being very different from the polls in Gundam Ace. Month after month in the Gundam Ace rankings, the characters and mecha for whatever Gundam is newest are there near (or at) the top...and yet, Char, Amuro, and Sayla are always there, too.

So yeah, while Frontier brought in many new fans, and made all sorts of publications (like Macross Chronicle and Macross Ace) and events (like the Yoko Kanno concert and the Launch Festival) possible, don't underestimate the appeal of the original show. It's remained steadfastly popular worldwide for a long time now, and that's unlikely to change.

At least it is avalable worldwide, in some form or another.

But I base my support of Sheryl on her personality and how she accomplished things. True, Minmay was certainly more important than Sheryl, since she ensured humanities survival, but Sheryl has the better character, IMO.
