Poll announcement

Tweet announcing the poll

An online popularity poll was held for the characters of Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou in March 2012 by Gangan Online. Fans cast their votes over a period of three weeks on the Gangan Online website. During the polling period, two poll updates were released that showed the top 10 characters voted for until that period. The final results were released on 21st March 2012, with a total of 192,608 votes having been cast.

DetailsEdit

The poll was first announced through Gangan Online’s Twitter handle on 22nd February 2012, with the hashtag “#男子高校生の日常人気投票” (Popularity poll for Daily Lives of High School Boys). The tweet also contained a link to the poll on the magazine’s website, and the hashtag was used in over 750 tweets over the course of the voting period.

The votes were collected until 14th March 2012. Users were only allowed to vote for one character, but there was no limit on the number of times one could vote. As a result, the poll tallied a very high number of almost 200,000 votes.
