My theory: the top 5 are what they are, because those are the Most Gay Kamen Riders (with maybe the exception of Den-O depending on how you feel about monsters). Although even within the top rankings, the margin between 2 and 3 is a whole 3% (~1.6k votes)! Wild. People really really love OOO and W.

I haven't seen OOO because I can't stand Ankh, and I was unable to finish W due to it triggering my body horror. However I'm extremely glad to see my favorite Build in the top 5, and a little shocked how low Gaim, Fourze, and Kiva are as I know they're well-liked by the English-speaking fandom.

Was this for the show or the titular character?

This list is a little odd. I don't understand how OOOs can top it and Fourze poll so low.

I took a gander at the NetLab site, and it doesn't seem to clarify between the character vs the show. Which is probably for the best, as it allows people greater freedom in how they vote.

That's asinine. You'd be conflating two independent parameters.

You're a mad man Take.

Agito is Inoue's best work, why is this ranked on 16th? Inoue screwed up Faiz in the second half of the series and it gets the rank of 6th on this list?!!!!!

Might be wrong on this but I hear Ghost being up in the top ten was out of pity for Shun Nishime, who was sad to hear Ghost initially ranked so low, or rather in last place initially.

50000 votes total isn't really a great amount either for an open access poll, especially considering how 'large' the fanbase is.

From what I know about the fandom on Twitter, the poll looks surprisingly accurate. I'm kinda surprised Gaim isn't lower tbh.

No. I'm saying it's not an accurate representation of the fanbase because the number is too small. Rider merch sales usually make between 10-20 billion yen a year. You'd need a huge fanbase in order to generate this number.

The poll also isn't weighted by age/gender/origin of voter. Also, reading the article, the lead actor of Ghost complained as the poll was going on that Ghost was last and suddenly it got a surge of votes.

I know this was a dumb poll talking about our favourite childrens television series, but you can't honestly expect to suggest that Ghost is in the top 10 and OOOs is the greatest of the era. I'm the biggest Build apologist out there, but the fact it's only behind Den-O by 0.3% tells you something is amiss.
