Some info on the characters:
Hitora - The leader of Germania. Once an artist, now forced into politics. She is sometimes an arrogant girl, often sweet and sour, but her cuteness shines through. Her dream is to unite all of Europa under one banner, to prevent any countries being divided up over treaties. Based loosely on Adolf Hitler.

Churchill - The leader of Britannia. A sleepy looking girl, she is a worthy adversary and perhaps the one Hitora respects most. Intelligent, a bookworm, and always overworking herself. She commands a mighty navy and the island nation is a fortress. Hitora nicknames her Chinchilla. Based loosely on Winston Churchill.

Cyrano - The leader of the Franzo people. Once a commandant, she has won the hearts of the people and worked her way up to lead. Mostly interested in internal affairs, but a fierce fighter if confronted. Can be very sneaky and is known to lie. Based loosely on Charles de Gaulle.

Starin - The leader of Sovia and Hitoraís sworn enemy. A mysterious character with a height complex. Hitora describes her as a tyrant and a bully, and that despite her sweet looks, she is not to be trusted. Based loosely on Joseph Stalin.

Rinni - The leader of the Italia people. Rather boisterous and happy-go-lucky, although very clumsy. A useful ally to the Axis at times, and a good friend to Hitora. Based loosely on Mussolini.

Zhukov - Starinís second-in-command, a fierce warrior. Based loosely on Georgy Zhukov.

Yamato - A Japanese teenager, he worked his way up from Footsoldier to General after fierce fighting in China. Following hospitalization after battle, he is called to Germania to become tactician to the dictator Hitora and help her realize her dream.

I have to say Hitora looks the cutest to me. Till I meet the characters, I think she will be my favorite.

That's why I open the poll for 30 days,and let people change their vote :D. Who knew if there will be new images or information regarding to these characters.

Currently, I'm going to have to vote for Hitora. I liked her character quite a bit in the demo, and she does interest me a bit more than the others.

I think I might just like tsurime eyes better than tareme eyes... Just a thing i noticed after looking at this and some refection.

Sola and Hitora both have tsurime. Is it just me, or anyone else feels that Hitora looks like Kagami Hiiragi from Lucky☆Star?

I've no idea what I'm talking about but Zukhov looks interesting.

The girls here have have a larger head to height ratio from what I can see. They do look alike but I blame the eyes and long hair and the tv tropes page you would have read placing that idea in your mind.

Zukhov looks like shes seen some sh*t right. Being Starin's second, I can't help but think commissar executions and stuff. Placing my Russia stereotypes aside, it turns out Georgy Zhukov was a pretty bad ass guy.

In my opinion :
Starin = Cosette
Zhukov = Icari
Rinni = Claude

 I don't know what could show more clarity in the moe archetypes than such a diagram. We have short with a compex and gekkiko down fine but I'm not so sure about Icari = Zhukov. I though Icari was closer to tsundare which looks like Hitoras role in MLD. I don't really like shoehorning in characters into archetypes though. Better to let them start similar to an archetype but grow as the story goes on so we get something not quite what we originally thought they were.

Well, those are my first impression when I saw the pictures.

which was Katawa Shoujo's greatest strength by far.

 Bring that up depresses me.  :'( What you say is true though if a bit of a gritty dark version of them. I don't think it needs to be depressing or dark to make the characters better. You just need to add some more flavour for different situations. How would a real person act, seems to be a good question to ask ever so often. Your genki character can't be happy all the time. Thatís exhausting. When alone they probably are much quieter. etc
 
Despite not playing much of it, I did play all of one route and that was pretty depressing going through that. Rin I think it was. That wasn't even the worst of it from what I heard.

I think Rin's story was a bit more depressing than most, but each have their ups and downs.

I'd agree with that. Rin's story was a bit darker than the others. However, that's only counting the good ends. Some of them had some pretty depressing bad ends. From what I've read about them, anyway. Although, if a certain theory on Rin's bad end is true, she wins there, too.

Speaking of Katawa Shoujo, someone should totally create a topic for it in the Other Games section. Could lead to some interesting discussion.

I don't really remember much about it. It was a long time ago now since I played and I only poked it once or twice since.

Haven't played Katawa Shoujo. Would like to give it a try later, when I finished my Steam game backlog, which seems more and more impossible to clear...

I totally don't have time to dive though a VN. Short games are my life right now since I have homework backed up from ignoring it all weekend. My own fault.  ::)

Will I ever want to replay it, I don't know but I would probably prefer to watch anime or something with that time.

Maybe you should stay clear of the Summer Sale, then. ;-P
Title: Re: My Little Dictator favourite characters ranking poll

 The summer sale has been the source of many troubles. A wife comes home and finds her husband sitting in front of the computer counting the seconds before the vote timer ticks over for the next hour, desperate to see if the game he voted on is going to be on sale next. She yells at him! 'Is this what you want! I couldn't afford to get any more bottled olives from the supermarket since you spent it all on you games!'
 
 He turns to her with a look in his eye that was both sad and desperate for understanding. She doesn't know the power of the steam summer sale like he does. 'I had to dear!' he says quietly. 'I don't know if they was going to be another chance to get Dino X ninjas for just $2.59! Thatís less than a jar of olives! '
'A bottle! Not a jar!' She yells as she runs from the house.
And thatís boys and girls is why olives are a waste of money

Another lesson to learn : You can save more money on games compared to groceries. I bet the wife can't save 75%-90% on groceries.

BREAKING NEWS: Housewife arrested after being caught shoplifting in a local grocery store. When interrogated, she told the bewildered policemen "I just tried to top my husband's savings on Steam's Summer Sale".

NEWS UPDATE:
Steam representative released this following statement in regard to the incident:
"We are very saddened by that news. To eat is one of human most basic needs. We strongly encourage our customers to balance between playing games and eating. We have learned a lot from this incident, and we feel that it is our responsibility to raise customers' awareness and help preventing this kind of incident to happen again. We have decided to no longer give out games coupons as rewards. Instead we will give coupons for pizzas and energy drinks with every game purchased via Steam. In the near future we are going to expand this project and add coupons for burgers, hot dogs, fried chickens, and sodas."

I would actually prefer that over the mostly useless game coupons.  ;D

Coupons are only good if you wanted that thing anyway!

We are soooooo off topic.

I like all the girls! They so cute! sonofabitch.

Almost forgot that I've started this poll :D. The poll is still open until April, 21st. So, if you haven't cast your vote, you still can do it :D.

Gorchnik says there can only be one best character!  Naturally my greatness voted for the only obvious choice.
