We are not surprised with #1! The Top 20 "Most Fascinating Cyborgs/Androids" in anime

Whether it be for comedy anime or for action anime, cyborgs and androids have been a huge part of Japanese animation ever since the days of Astro Boy. For this week’s Charapedia poll, the Japanese character database has asked readers to choose which of these cyborgs they find to be “Most Charming”.

With a total of 10,000 votes (59.1% male, 40.9% female), the poll featured a total of 70 cyborgs, however, only the Top 20 were named, and they are:

20 – Miss Monochrome (Miss Monochrome)

19 – Chachamaru Karakuri (Mahou Sensei Negima)

18 – Tomoyo (Saikano)

17 – R. Ichirou Tanaka (Kyuukyoku Choujin R)

16 – Atom/ Astro (Astro Boy)

15 – Gai Shishioh (GaoGaiGar)

14 – Multi (To-Heart)

13 – Arale Norimaki (Dr. Slump)

12 – Kuro-chan (Cyborg Kuro-chan)

11 – Haro (Gundam franchise)

10 – Ai Mikaze (UtaPri)


9 – Nano Shinonome (Nichijou)


8 – Ritsu/ Autonomously Thinking Fixed Artillery (Assassination Classroom)

7 – Motoko Kusanagi (Ghost in the Shell)


6 – Android 18 (Dragon Ball)


5 – Isla (Plastic Memories)


4 – Franky (One Piece)


3 – Tama (Gintama)


2 – Genos (One Punch man)


1 – Doraemon (Doraemon)


Come on guys, who else would the #1 be but the iconic blue cat from the future?! But while Doraemon’s win comes at no surprise, the cyborg which started it all, Astro Boy, failed to even make the Top 10, which is a huge upset.

And speaking of upsets, Gintama’s own resident cyborg, Tama, managed to upset a lot of big names, including Astro Boy, Franky, Android 18, and Motoko Kusanagi!
