    How are they still popular?

    Actually how are they even popular at all? One is basically an infallible deity walking and the other a kidnapped princess archetype.

    Tons of people, an astronomical amount eat McDonalds and other fast food on a daily basis. Does that mean the vast majority of people think McD's is good food?

    Something that's enjoyable to consume doesn't make it good, but usually makes it popular.

    Popular not equal to good you say? You are the noob. First of all, people have different tastes, what's bad for you might be good for others. If a series is so popular, that simply means the number of people who think that the anime is good is FAR EXCEED those who think otherwise. As simple as that NOOB.

    Because SAO is actually a good series, you'd know that if you didn't just blindly hated it for no reason.

    Aincrad story arc was pretty good, I liked it.

    The side stories of volume two were horrible though, as they were written from female character perspectives, and literally the only thought in any of their vacant, empty heads was "OMG Kirito is so hot I love him". And that was it. They had a brief MacGuffin for their story and the remaining entirety of their existence was love-at-first-sight with Kirito.

    Follow that with a storyline centered around the girlfriend being kidnapped and depowered while the younger sister falls in love with him, and then a storyline about an ice-queen archetype character falling in love with him, and then a storyline that tries to shoehorn in ridiculously overblown drama at an attempt for tragedy that comes across more as insipid humor than anything else, and you have SA:O in almost its entirety.

    An excellent first novel/arc, and then a cascading avalanche of pandering bullshit.

    Hayate Immelman must of made it on Bishounen points alone because, as much as I like the Macross franchise overall, Delta was a poor showing.

    I can understand and accept pretty much every other char showing up on this list set, but Delta chars were pretty flat. (Guess I shouldn't be surprise since this is a popularity list for fictional 2D characters. Char design trumps characterization fairly often.) I didn't feel much, if any, attachment to the chars in Delta. Frontier had me rooting for someone by the end of it. I spent more time facepalming in Delta due to the Hollywood-style plot devices.

    Apparently not lurking enough. Topic images/thumbs on SanCom don't always reflect the content. It's been that way for as long as I can remember and I've been hitting up SanCom on and off since about 2007. It's not hard to pick up on trends here. They're pretty blatant, used for cheap laughs and click-bait. (And apparently confusing the shit out of people who can't pick up on it...)

    List is fine, Rem is highly overrated. Don't get me wrong she's amazing but there's zero depth to her character. She's gonna disappear as fast as she rose to popularity. In a few months, you won't even remember her name.

    "Rem is a natural born No 1"

    Sure. Tell yourself that. Why don't you head off to your nearest circlejerk where you can all jack each other off to Rem while you're at it?

    I'm so glad to see Rem rank down. I don't hate her but damn she's like stupid generic maido mode. She's like #1 girl to those that don't remember the maid boom of 10 years ago.
