Update: Voting in the polls is now closed, so you can see the final rankings for most and least wanted Street Fighter 5 characters in the original story below.

Dan Hibiki, Rose, Oro, and Akira Kazama were recently revealed for Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition's "Season V" roster. We'll learn about the identity of the fifth and final character at a later date.

The first character that will be released in Dan. He's due to become available in winter 2020. This means we'll have to wait until 2021 for the other four fighters.

Of the four unveiled fighters, which one of them has fans the most excited? On the flip side, which of these four are the least exciting?

To answer these questions, we've created polls that will gauge our readers on their hype levels.

Rose undoubtedly has a lot of fans that have been waiting for her announcement. Notably, she's the third female character to become playable in the Street Fighter series after Chun-Li and Cammy.

Up until now, Oro has only really been playable in the Street Fighter 3 titles. While he was never considered to be a top tier, he ended up being quite popular among fans.

Akira Kazama will be making her Street Fighter debut in summer 2021. Most players are familiar with Akira from Capcom's Rival Schools series.

Being that Dan Hibiki is often considered to be a joke character, I am personally predicting him to win the "least excited" poll. Still, it's undeniable that he has his fair share of fans. I suspect he'll probably secure a few votes in the "most excited" poll.

To make things a little interesting, each user is allotted two votes per poll.

Which of the revealed 'Season V' characters are you most excited for?

1. Akira Kazama: 405 votes / 35.7%
2. Oro: 365 votes / 32.1%
3. Dan Hibiki: 197 votes / 17.3%
