Joining the fray are the Sanrio Danshi (Sanrio Boys), who are decked out in traditional Japanese hakama to likewise show their support for their own favourites. Reminiscent of Japanese all-men’s cheering squads called ouen-dan, we think they’re a class of their own and should be in the rankings themselves!
