Both surprisingly and unsurprisingly, a recent poll from the official Shinkalion website for fan favorite characters from Shinkalion The Animation showed overwhelming support for Hatsune Miku, who topped the poll with the #1 fan vote! Despite being recently introduced, it’s clear that many were looking forward to Miku’s appearance. Even the series main character Hayasugi Hayato didn’t stand a chance in the heated competition, placing 5th in the poll.
