Japan Celebrates Twin Tail Day; Sailor Moon Takes Top Spot At Twin Tail Poll
On February 2, 2013, Japan (and ultimately, the rest of the world where otakus can be found), celebrated another unique holiday called Twin Tail Day. Like the rest of the otaku holidays (i.e August 1’s Yaoi Day), Twin Tail Day came about from how the days and months are written. February 2, or (2/2) was chosen as the day to celebrate the anime, manga and perhaps even video game girls, who sport the such hair-do.
In celebration of Twin Tail Day, a poll was made in which the male populace of Japan were asked who their top 10 twin tailed characters were. The results came in and Naoko Takeuchi’s (武内 直子) unforgettable magical girl, Sailor Moon (セーラームーン) takes the top spot. Sailor Chibi Moon (セーラーちびムーン), also a Sailor Moon entry, takes second place and Neon Genesis Evangelion’s (新世紀エヴァンゲリオン,) very own resident tsundere, Asuka Langley Soryu (惣流, アスカ, ラングレー) lands in third.
Other notable pig-tailed girls that also appeared on the poll are Rin Tohsaka (遠坂 凛) from Fate/Stay Night (フェイト/ステイナイト), Kaname Madoka (鹿目 まどか) from Puella Magi Madoka Magica (魔法少女まどか☆マギカ), and Nakano Azusa (中野 梓) from K-On! (けいおん!) just to name a few.
