Attack on Titan: Japanese Fans Rank Their Favorite Titan

Published on March 8th, 2022

NHK TV, who is the broadcast partner of Attack on Titan anime series, recently conducted a survey, asking Japanese fans to pick their favorite Titan. Keep in mind that the poll was not about the strength, but which Titan is most liked by fans. More than 3,000 people participated in the poll, and the NHK Twitter account has recently revealed the poll results.

Here are the rankings according to the poll results:

  1. Attack Titan
  2. Female Titan
  3. Colossal Titan (Tied)
  4. War Hammer Titan (Tied)
  5. Armored Titan
  6. Founding Titan
  7. Jaw Titan
  8. Beast Titan
  9. Cart Titan

It is clear from the ranking that Japanese fans prefer good looking Titans as you can see the top 2 places are occupied by Attack Titan and Female Titan, while not so good looking Titans, like Beast, and Cart Titan came to the last place.

Japanese fans were also asked to rank their favorite character from Attack on Titan, and the results are quite surprising:

  4. Armin Arlert
  5. Sasha Blouse
  6. Reiner Braun
  7. Historia Reiss
  8. Jean Kirstein
  9. Hange Zoe
  10. Annie Leonhart

As expected, Levi Ackerman is still the most popular character in Attack on Titan series. Surprisingly, the Survey Corps commander, Erwin Smith didn’t make it into the Top 10 list, considering that in previous polls, he always ranks higher.

Here are the rankings for Attack on Titan theme songs:

  1. Guren no Yumiya
  2. Shinzou wo Sasageyo!
  3. My War
  4. Akuma no Ko
  5. Jiyuu no Tsubasa
  6. This Beautiful Cruel World
  7. Shock
  8. Shoukei to Shikabane no Michi
  9. Great Escape
  10. Yuugure no Tori

Attack on Titan final season part 2 theme song, “My War” ranked 3rd, while the first ever opening song of AoT, “Guren no Yumiya” ranked first. Besides the ranking, the main cast of Attack on Titan, Yuki Kaji (Eren Yeager), Yui Ishikawa (Mikasa Ackerman), and Marina Inoue (Armin Arlert) appeared on a special program on NHK TV. They live voice acted one of the fan favorite scenes from the series:
