New Poll - Romance Scenarios

Option 6 for me.

I don't like romance all that much, but if I read something with a prominent love story theme, I prefer having multiple couples who all get time in the spotlight, rather than one super-alpha couple that's always making up and breaking up and beating about the bush trying to vocalize their feelings just so the writer can drag the romantic tension out over the entirety of the series. I dislike love polygons intensely, though: I like it when all the couples are clearly separate and are not pining after other people's love interests.

That... I like how you explain it biggrin, I feel the same too, but I don't really mind couples not being clearly seperated

Oh god, how on earth can your mind stand so much confusion? I read some Kimi No Iru Machi (probably got the name wrong) and after around 150 chapters I was truly pissed off. I can't even start to imagine how many conflicts between couples/love interests in School Rumble. Oh God, my brain is gonna explode just by thinking about it.
One Pairing please.

now THAT is a very complicated diagram bigrazz ...

Well, I have a diagram here that is slightly less complex, but still focus quite a bit on their relationships, its yaoi though.

Where the pierced heart means "Used to love" and also happens to be "First Love" in both of the cases here in this diagram.

although to be fair, Junjou Romantica is more like 3 separate inter-related 1-pairing series (with various lovestruck and ex-crush side characters added in) woven together... so it doesn't really get that confusing because you only ever have to deal with one storyline at a time.

Curry, the most important part of the chart.

I do like the drama when more than one couple are involved, with the misunderstandings and all types of shit is flying everywhere. But it does, usually more than once, make me rage a bit. So I chose the option that makes me rage the least yet I still enjoy.

Just one pairing please XD

thread

» Kiks on July 27th, 2013, 8:58am

LOL a love quarter for more....shouldn't it be for less since it's 1/4, while a love foursome is 4 people XD, anyways for me it would be either 1 pairing or none at all, drama in manga quickly goes crazy so I opt out of that

thread

» sculamio on July 27th, 2013, 11:12am

Yeah, I was thinking "love square" instead of quarter...

Multiple couples!!

It keeps things interesting.

Though I must confess, I do like love triangles (ONLY if it's done right!! And he/she BETTER end up with my favorite at the end of it.) Harem (and Reverse Harem) is always fun too, if I'm in the mood for it.

thread

» psycho-shocker on July 27th, 2013, 4:12pm

Well, most harem in manga are for comedy and not really for romance.

thread

» -shiratori- on July 27th, 2013, 4:41pm

Multiple couples, cause I always tend to ship the side characters, sometimes even more than the main couple.
Only one pairing is perfectly fine too, just no love polygon or even a harem. Ugh -_-

thread

» yarn on July 28th, 2013, 4:05pm

I voted for no romance (since I have no soul cool cool cool ).

Well, actually I've been known to cheer for a particular couple or two. But I generally don't like how romance is presented, so it's something I'd rather not see, even though it's in practically everything. But if it's done nicely it's OK. But I'm pretty particular about what makes romance enjoyable. Bla, bla, bla.

thread

» mysstris on July 29th, 2013, 9:07pm

One pair is enough. Add elements of drama here and there, ok but when there is a love triangle permanently part of the story, that's just annoying but in shoujos, they're hard to get away from

I absolutely don't like reverse harems because in most cases, the heroine is pathetic. I usually avoid them. Harems on the other hand, it depends....

Multiple couples is alright when they each get their own story but when they mix things up (end up dating each other), nah....

But if it's a manga that can work without romance, I prefer it not to so when people start some thread talking about romance, I get annoyed since there are a lot more important things going on and romance is something that can take a back seat.

I like love triangles, but only when they're done right, which is rare. It shouldn't be obvious from page 1 who the main character is going to end up with, which is what usually happens. It also has to have the right pacing. Love triangles shouldn't last 50+ chapters. After a while, it's gets tiresome and annoying. But for me, that's the same with any love story. I hate when things are drawn out, and couples deal with the same problems/misunderstandings over and over again.

thread

» lynira on July 31st, 2013, 4:28pm

Well, let's see... I'm not a big fan of romance to begin with (some romance is fine, but I don't want to read a series that's only about romance). I also don't like angsty romantic drama (people getting anxious about who likes whom, romantic rivalry, breakups, being sad about how so-and-so doesn't like them back, etc.), so polygons and harems are out. So... I guess I'll pick just one couple as my favorite... although I don't really care between one or multiple couples (but no polygons), as long as there is no drama and it's not a major focus for the series.

thread

» Narufan1st on July 31st, 2013, 4:37pm

I don't like love triangles as I always end up rooting for the guy/ girl that won't get the guy/girl in the end and I don't like harem or reverse harem as a lot of people end up single in the end , I tend to like lots of couples biggrin
