Fall 2021 Anime, Best Boy, Best Girl, Couple-Ship Rankings Recap – Week 5

86 EIGHTY-SIX loses its hold on the top spots that it occupied last week as Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation and Mieruko-chan step up to take its crowns. Here’s a recap of the Anime Trending Charts released from November 14 to 18.

Top 10 Anime Rankings

After being ousted of the top spot last week, Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation reclaims the top spot from 86 EIGHTY-SIX. The Top 4 anime remain the same, but Ranking of Kings threatens to disrupt that as it is now knocking on their doors after stepping up by a spot to #5. Meanwhile, Irina: The Vampire Cosmonaut broke through the Top 10 for the first time this season after the end of its first arc. 

Top 10 Male Character Rankings

Banished from the Hero’s Party continues to perform well on  the Anime Trending charts. After clinching the top spot for couple-ships last week, the male lead Red almost did the same, finishing at #2 just behind Rudeus Greyrat (Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation), who also moved up this week after the reunion episode. Harumi Takeda (My Senpai is Annoying) joins the Top 10 for the first time, leading to the exit of Sesshoumaru (Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon).

Top 10 Female Character Rankings

As Red goes, so does Rit. Just like her lover, Rit (Banished from the Hero’s Party)also advances higher and is now at #4 in the latest female rankings. Irina Luminesk (Irina: The Vampire Cosmonaut) also enters the Top 4, making quite a leap from her previous ranking of #8. Miko Yotsuya (Mieruko-chan) topples the Bloody Reina, Vladilena Milizé (86 EIGHTY-SIX) off the top spot and is now the new best girl of this season. Meanwhile, Touko Sakurai (My Senpai is Annoying) joins her co-cast Futaba Igarashi in the Top 10 Female Rankings. With that new addition, only two shows have more than one character represented in the Top 10: My Senpai is Annoying and 86 EIGHTY-SIX, and both series share voice actor Saori Hayami (Touko Sakurai, Anju Emma). 

Top 10 Couple-Ship Rankings

The Couple-Ship Chart’s Top 3 is now completely different from its first week of results. Red and Rit (Banished from the Hero’s Party) continues to hold  the top spot for the second consecutive week as they also continue to delight viewers with cuddling, flirting, and, most of all, a kissing scene.

Tamahiko Shima and Yuzuki Tachibana (Taisho Otome Fairy Tale) are this week’s runner-up couple. The couple made a huge leap from its previous ranking, as it improved by five spots. Taisho Otome Fairy Tale has not yet entered the Top 10 rankings, making the characters’ high ship placement an impressive feat. Nonetheless, Taisho Otome Fairy Tale is now just a spot away from entering the Top 10.

Lev Leps and Irina Luminesk (Irina: The Vampire Cosmonaut), who advanced two spots from their previous ranking, round out the Top 3. The improvement comes after Irina’s risky space mission, which boosted the couple’s relationship development. As fans of the show have dubbed it, the ship is no longer just a ship — it is now a spaceship ready to blast off at the speed of light.
