What You Need to Know:
- Have you heard of otoko no ko? No, not the regular term for "boy" in Japanese. The "ko" in this word is written with the Kanji for "daughter" and refers to a guy who either willingly presents in, or happens to look and act in a stereotypical "feminine" way. So basically, they're tomgirls!
- With otoko no ko characters appearing more and more in anime, Akiba Souken set out to find which are Japanese fan favourites. In a poll held between 2 June and 31 August, 2323 people cast their votes. Now, we're bringing you the results!

How did Saika not get to number one?! Someone's rigged this poll!
Calm down, Bee-kun! Maybe it's because he doesn't crossdress that often? I mean he's tied at second anyway!
