Shinobu Oshino | MadoGatari Queen

Shaft held a MadoGatari exhibit in multiple cities in Japan; the exhibit celebrated the 40th anniversary of animation studio Shaft. The exhibit has toured in Tokyo, Osaka and Sapporo. It had gathered 40,000 visitors and the exhibit also added a couple of dates for the city of Nagoya.

During the MadoGatari event in Nagoya, 8,478 attendees voted for Shaft’s Best Girl. After announcing an encore Tokyo event for September, Shaft finally crowned the MadoGatari Queen. The actual results of the vote were released in May 2016.

The girls who placed from numbers 12 to 4 are as follows:

  • 12. Hidamari Sketch‘s Yuno
  • 11. Ground Control to Psychoelectric Girl‘s Erio Touwa
  • 10. Monogatari Series‘s Nadeko Sengoku 
  • 9. Puella Magi Madoka Magica‘s Mami Tomoe
  • 8. Puella Magi Madoka Magica‘s Sayaka Miki
  • 7. Monogatari Series‘s Tsubasa Hanekawa
  • 6. Monogatari Series‘s Mayoi Hachikuji 
  • 5. Puella Magi Madoka Magica‘s Madoka Kaname 
  • 4. Puella Magi Madoka Magica‘s Kyoko Sakura

The top two runner ups of the vote are as follows:

Hitagi Senjougahara from the Monogatari Series placed at Number 3 with 774 votes.

Homura Akemi from Puella Magi Madoka Magica placed at Number 2 with 1162 votes.

And the number one girl and undisputed MadoGatari Queen is…

Shinobu Oshino, who easily takes the crown of Queen MadoGatari with an outstanding 1,867 votes. Clearly there wasn’t any contest here as Shinobu easily took the crown from the other Shaft Girls with a 705 vote lead on the next runner up.

After almost 2 months, Shaft finally crowned Shinobu the Queen of Madogatari in July.

What do you think of the results? Do you think another girl should have won the vote or was Shinobu the obvious choice?
