Grandfathers, sometimes, they are sweet, loving old men, sometimes they are strict disciplinarians, and we love them just the same. For this week’s Charapedia poll, the anime character database took a look at grandfathers, and asked fans to vote for which one is the most charming.
Out of 10,000 votes, 51.8% were male while 48.2% were female. A total of 35 characters were included in the poll (not all actually had grandchildren), however, only the Top 20 were revealed, and they are:
20 – Dangerous Grandpa (Grandpa Danger)
19 – Mitsuyoshi Anzai (Slam Dunk)
18 – Daisuke Aramaki (Ghost in the Shell)
17 – Professor Oak (Pokemon)
16 – Happisai (Ranma 1/2)
15 – Tanaka (Black Butler)
14 – Silver Rayleigh (One Piece)
13 – Kamaji (Spirited Away)
12 – Jam Ojisan (Anpan Man)
11 – Mikazuki Munechika (Touken Ranbu)
10 – Ikkei Ukkai (Haikyuu!!)
9 – Hiroshi Agasa (Detective Conan)
8 – Hiruzen Sarutobi (Naruto)
7 – Alm Onji (Heidi, Girl of the Alps)
6 – Monkey D. Garp (One Piece)
5 – Namihei Isono (Sazae-san)
4 – Joseph Joestar (Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure)
3 – Tippy (Is the Order a Rabbit?)
2 – Master Roshi (Dragon Ball)
1 – Tomozo Sakura (Chibi Maruko-chan)
Maruko’s grandfather definitely has the charm, and that was enough to propel him to the top spot, beating out favorites like the 3rd Hokage, Joseph Joestar, and Master Roshi, who all placed in the Top 10.
Oh yeah, about Tippy, he’s actually… oops, that’s gonna be a spoiler!
So, which old man or grand father is the one you find most charming?
