Now, Identity V has been HOT… I’ve seen its Chara a lot even though I don’t know what the game is like… Are you one of those who are thinking like this?
Boss( 'ω')
It’s been hot here in Japan too even though it was actually produced in China! We saw this title at Comiket, the collabo café, the play… and they will even produce the collabo Goods with Sanrio too!
Saori(゜∇ ゜)
So…. The theme of the Vol.2 is…! Which Chara is most popular!? Here comes the Identity V Chara Popularity Ranking in Otaku Republic!!

What is the definition of ‘popularity’ here?
Saori(゜∇ ゜)
Yeah! It’s the number of Doujinshi in Otaku Republic! That means it might differ from the actual popularity… So just enjoy the results as popularity inside of Otaku Republic! Alright, let’s get started! First, we will go with the survivor version!

Boss( 'ω')
Oh, yeah! I’ve watched Aesop Carl-Kun which got the 1st place. And I know the magazine, specialized with cosplaying, called COSPLAY MODE, became unavailable when the front cover was him since it sold too much.
Saori(゜∇ ゜)
Right! Aesop-Kun, though, is not good at playing tag when it comes to the chara’s function. (It’s my [Saori’s] opinion, though..) However, he appears a lot in Doujinshi because his career being an ‘embalmer’, a little shy personality and mysterious background match with the discussion group and gothic atmosphere, which makes people come to like his Chara instead of his function! That’s how he appears more in Doujinshi, I guess.
Boss( 'ω')
Eli Clark-Kun, who got the 2nd place, appears a lot too, huh? I see a big difference between him and Subedar-Kun, who’s got the 3rd place.
Saori(゜∇ ゜)
Eli-San is the Chara which many players choose! Since he has the ability to invalidate one attack from his or his ally’s hunter in any timing, not just the beginners but the advanced players also use him to extend the chasing (playing tag) time!
Boss( 'ω')
I got you.
Saori(゜∇ ゜)
As a Chara, everybody thinks he is a kind big brother since he often saves people! A little owl which is always with him is super cute too and I have been saved by him so many times while chasing too!

In the official Twitter in Japan, his official illustration is often posted!
That could be the reason for his popularity…?!

Alright now! Let’s move on to the hunter version! Let’s check which Chara are more popular in Otaku Republic!

Boss( 'ω')
I’ve seen Joseph-San, who got the 1st place. Wasn’t he the main character in the play version, Identity V?
Saori(゜∇ ゜)
Yep! It wasn’t the main character but rather, the story went on under the viewpoint of him and Aesop-Kun…!
Boss( 'ω')
Oh, yeah? By the way, why is Joseph-San so attractive?
Saori(゜∇ ゜)
As you can see, he is handsome. He looks noble, talks and behaves gently, of course, and his costumes are always super cool.
Saori(゜∇ ゜)
Plus, his hunter skills are very different from the ones of other hunters. (See more details from the Vol.1 article!) Instead of catching the survivors at tag, he hunts them down by his intelligent and strategic tracking. His face, his appearance and how he fights…. Everything is so cool. That’s our Joseph Desaulnier.
Boss( 'ω')
Alright… how about Wu Chang-San’s attraction, who got the 2nd place?
Saori(゜∇ ゜)
Let’s see… Wu Chang-San’s way of thinking is horribly sad.
※Check the first article for more details!
Boss( 'ω')
He’s strong as a hunter but he is super attractive also as a Chara, huh?
Saori(゜∇ ゜)
Yes! He actually got the 1st place from the Vol.2 Chara Popularity Vote in Japan, conducted in the game! There are so many fans here in Japan too since it was the results by the votes and the usage rate!

Here’s the costume in the game, commemorating the 1st place!
Look at this ephemeral atmosphere… Lovely…
