Famitsu readers rank Fire Emblem: Three Houses characters, but what say you?


Top of the Class?

If there's one thing Nintendo Switch RPG Fire Emblem: Three Houses isn't short on, it's characters. With three separate schools, not to mention a fistful of tutors, all vying for your attention, its only natural some of these students and faculty will stand out in both your head and your heart.

To that end, Japanese magazine Famitsu ran a poll of its readers, asking them to nominate their favourite characters encountered in the hallowed halls of the Garreg Mach Monestary. Once the dust had cleared and the votes were tabulated, the winning male and female characters were the Blue Lions' leader Dimitri and the Black Eagles' withdrawn noblewoman Bernadetta.

Still, in both cases it was an incredibly close call, with less than 100 votes between first and second place, leaving Golden Deer leader Claude and one of his fellow classmates,  Lysithea, just out of luck. But we're also interested in hearing your thoughts. So, after perusing the full rankings below, drop us a note in the comments, where you can agree with me that Manuela was robbed. Utterly robbed.
