you can replace Japan with dozens of countries and this statement would remain true.Well, Japan loves Disney.
When it comes to the Royal Knights I think the one I appreciate the most is Gankoomon due to being a lot more like a fellow person who displays a lot of humanity and presenting himself a lot more personally as opposed to the DC comic book or Greek figure-esque feeling the other knights are presented with.
I feel like this is why a lot of people like the Olympos XII more, because they're way easier to envision happening to come across and living amongst the people (some mixed examples being Bacchusmon spending a lot of time hosting grand revels, Ceresmon being seen in the skies as its own flying landmass, Marsmon always wanting to duke it out with others, Mercurymon constantly running across the land as he hates to stay in one place, and Vulcanusmon who is known to do business with those who are not gods such as crafting Beelzemon his signature guns).
Even though Gankoomon is yet another dragon man to an extent, presenting him as more human and giving him a background where he serves the people on an upfront personal level is so refreshing among emotionless looking mechs and knights who stay "mysterious" and "hidden" (yet still manage to have people constantly call them overused and too focused on). I also appreciate how he's not a Bancho member yet is still very much a mature manly man who fits the look and personality of a bancho perfectly among the Royal Knights anyway. Dude even has a 「Stand」.
Considering I rarely ever see Gankoomon get the love I have for him from others, I'm considering this an unpopular opinion (and I guess it can be seen as a rant as nobody asked lol). Best knight
