Japanese anime website, Anime!Anime!, polled their users on who they’d like to see as their boss to celebrate Boss Day in Japan, which is celebrated on October 16 every year. Usually, you’d give your manager chocolates, or maybe a good wine, but if you work for these people, you might need to think of something more exciting.
Of the 172 people who responded to the poll on the website, 75 percent of them were female and 25 percent were male, with 50 percent of people under the age of 19 and the rest over the age of 20. 25 percent of people were in their 20s.
Tied for 7th place is Yukichi Fukuzawa (Bungo Stray Dogs), Hijikata Toshiro (Gintama), Yoshiyuki Hatori (Sekai Ichi Hatsukoi – World’s Greatest First Love), Shinya Kogami (PSYCHO-PASS), and Whitebeard (One Piece).
At 6th place is Rei Furuya from Case Closed.
5th place went to Wakaba from Kemurikusa.
Tied for third place is Lucky Beast (Kemono Friends) and Gintoki Sakata (Gintama). Responders that voted for Gintoki said that they would like to work for him because the responder was “usually lazy and unreliable” and “that if Gin-san was the boss, work would be very interesting.” Voters for the adorable Lucky Beast said that they seem like a very dependable boss for Japari Park that would praise their employees.
In 2nd place is Nobumoto Ginoza from PSYCHO-PASS. People who voted for Nobumoto said that he is “kind and reliable” and that they “want to be a subordinate of the kind Ginoxa who is always caring for his employees.”
And finally in 1st place is Akane Tsunemori, also from PSYCHO-PASS. Despite the cruel world Akane lives in, the protagonist of the series is able to climb the ladder all while keeping her mental health in check. Voters chose her because Akane can “draw out the full ability of any individual” and is “trustworthy” while also “trusting in her employees.”
