Anime otaku forced to rank actual anime otaku, NEETs and other such objects of scorn by their “loveability” reveal that Konata is now less popular than a fat man.
1. Itaru Hashida (Steins;Gate)
2. Konata Izuma (Lucky Star)
3. Kuroneko (Ore no Imouto)
4. Kohta Hirano (Highschool of the Dead)
5. Origami Cyclone (Tiger & Bunny)
6. Keima Katsuragi (Kami Nomi zo Shiru Sekai)
7. Alice (Heaven’s Memo Pad)
8. Kirino (Ore no Imouto)
9. Shiro (Arakawa Under The Bridge)
10. Jintan (Ano Hi Mita Hana)
Whether Konata’s fall from grace can be attributed to Hirano’s antics or simply to an innocent lack of interest in a fairly moribund franchise looks open to debate.
