Manga-adaptation actors and musicians abound in the list of desired fandom consummations.

Japanese survey site Rankingoo asks its users a lot of questions, like what their favorite cherry blossom-related pop song is, or which overseas Disney theme park or resort they’d most like to visit. Recently, though, it also revealed the results of a steamier poll, asking women which man they want to make love to them (with actors, musicians, and other celebrities being the ostensible potential pool to choose from).

A total of 2,575 responses were collected from women in their teens, 20s, 30s, and 40s, and below are the top 10.

10. Ryohei Suzuki (81 votes)

An English major in college, Suzuki played barely clothed superhero Hentai Kamen in the live-action movie adaptation of the offbeat manga, giving fans a glimpse at his body while covering his face with a pair of panties.

9. Hiroshi Tamaki (85 votes)

Another real-word incarnation of a popular manga character, Tamaki fills the role of Nodame Cantabile’s eccentric musician Shinichi, and fans of his voice will be happy to know that he’s also Chris Pratt’s substitute in the Japanese dubs of Jurassic Park

7 (tie). Tomohisa Yamashita (88 votes)

He’s not a doctor, but Yamashita has played one on TV, filling a starring role in medical drama Code Blue. Aside from acting, he’s also a pop idol attached to boy band behemoth talent agency Johhny & Associates.

7 (tie). Ryoma Takeuchi (88 votes)

Aside from his many adult female fans, Takeuchi is pretty popular with kids, what with his breakout role being Shinnosuke Tomari, a.k.a. Kamen Rider Drive. He’ll probably pick up even more young fans this spring when he voices Tim Goodman, the human lead in the live-action Detective Pikachu, for the movie’s Japanese-dubbed version.

6. Tomoya Nagase (89 votes)

The second Johnny’s representative on the list, Nagase is a member of Tokio, one of the first boy bands to have considerable crossover success with the Japanese variety show circuit and TV dramas.

5. Fukuyama Masaharu (102 votes)

Few performers can match Masaharu Fukuyama’s resume in breadth or length. A chart-topping recording artist (as well as a popular choice for guys trying to impress girls on karaoke dates) for the better part of the last three decades, he starred in the award-winning family drama Like Father, like Son and also took on the role of Hiko Seijuro in the live-action Rurouni Kenshin film trilogy.

4. Tori Matsuzaka (123 votes)

Like Ryoma Takeuchi, Tori Matsuzaka got his start in a live-action tokusatsu special effects TV show, Samurai Sentai Shinkenger, in an increasingly common example of tokusatsu franchises casting actors who won’t just appeal to the primary target audience of kids, but to their housewife moms who’re watching over their shoulders. More recently, he’s shown his Shakespearian skills on stage as Henry the Fifth.

3. Dean Fujioka (131 votes)

Despite his fashionably international stage name, Fujioka isn’t actually of mixed ethnicity, and he was born and grew up in Japan. He did attend community college in Seattle, though, and is an experienced overseas traveler. Yet another musician/actor, Fujioka played the male lead in the TV drama-adaptation of manga Dame na Watashi ni Koishite Kudasai.

2. Hidetoshi Nishijima (153 votes)

No doubt at least partially in thanks to his strong jawline, Nishijima (seen on the right above) won parts in TV police/detective thrillers such as Unfair and Strawberry Night, and his filmography also has an oddly large amount of unorthodox punctuation thanks to his involvement in 2/Duo, Love/Juice, and Tokyo.sora, and he’s also set to play one of the leading roles in the upcoming live-action TV drama version of manga What Did You Eat Yesterday?, in which a gay couple cohabiting in Tokyo bond over their nightly meals.

1. Takumi Saito (154 votes)

And finally, at the top of the list, winning by a margin as thin as one of the expertly styled hairs on his head, is Takumi Saito. A prolific actor, Saito appeard in four TV dramas/specials in 2018 (Maskmen, BG Personal Bodyguard, Sunday Prime Detective Story, and harassment Game), as well as four films releaed in Japan (Kyonen no Fuyu, Kimi to Wakare, blank13, Nomitorizamurai, and Saraba Seijaku). In addition, he appears in Russian/Japanese co-production The Sakura that Sorokin Saw.

Saito’s official profile is also quite detailed regarding his measurements, listing them as 183 centimeters (72 inches) in height, 94 centimeters around the chest, 73 centimeters at the waist, 92 centimeters around the hips, and 28 centimeters in foot length, perhaps so that fans whose desire for physical contact with Saito can make their own life-sized huggy pillow.
