After his stunt in Fate/Zero’s latest episode, Lancer managed to achieve the impossible and obliterate all other characters in a popularity ranking – and it’s not by a small margin either, it’s an undisputed victory.
Within this Animate shop, Lancer’s voting space has entirely turned blue from an abundance of votes – it’s not even worth discussing if he’s won, as clearly, he won. The sheer magnitude of votes he’s managed to accrue is ridiculous – yet sure enough he has them, and it’s doubtful any can manage to top this. One would normally think, what if another character performed something epic in the next episode? That’s the very issue actually – what did Lancer do? He did nothing except toss away his fighting chance, and so lackluster in fashion as well.
All the other characters have engaged in all sorts of actions, yet Lancer’s breaking of a stick made him an instant hit with the otaku of Akihabara.
