'Only if it's done extremely well' would be my correct answer. Went with the 'Don't care' though.

And, I only speak for BL ones, as I haven't read any shoujo/shounen etc with one.

Hate them.
Because most of the time it only ends up with lots of retarded misunderstandings.

I hate them. It seems like something a lot of authors do when they can't come up with better ideas to add tension to the story.

I'd rather read a story about two people in love with each other getting through the tough times with each other than a story about indecisiveness but it seem like most of the stories use the love triangle situation. sad

If they're there, I don't care.

They can spice up a manga, though. The competition and rivalry a Love Triangle produces are always entertaining factors. The only thing that I don't like about them is when the two giving ends of the triangle start pushing for the receiving end to make up its mind.

There are other kinds of triangles, yet I don't notice them because, again, I don't care that much about them.

Love triangles can sometimes be interesting, but I hate it when 1 party loses out- especially if the rejected person is really nice and is genuinely in love with the person who is being loved by 2 people. Anything more than 2 people being interested in the same person is just too much for me, personally, and sort of unrealistic too. I guess depending on the story, a love triangle can either be an interesting plot device, or really annoying! dead

It greatly depends on the skill of the author whether it's enjoyable or just plain annoying. Most often, unfortunately, it's the latter. So, in general, I absolutely hate them as they are used far too often as a sort of fall-back in order to create tension in a story when the ratings go down or the author simply doesn't know what to do next.

Though, nowadays, it's surprisingly difficult to find a manga where a love triangle or greater doesn't exist. Especially in shoujo, it's a constant element. In shounen, well...that's generally harem time isn't it?

To state it again: hate them >.<

Martial arts? Really? There are already so many manga out there revolving around martial arts I find it hard to believe people actually want more of them.

Most of the time I hate them because the characters usually suffer because of it. By suffer I mean it results in poorer characters.

Ex:Junjou Romantica Misaki-this is the best example of a character practically being destroyed for the sake of drama + love triangles. This guy does not grow, he does not learn anything, and the same scenario continuously repeats itself.

Unless the triangle becomes a harem other than that I don't like them.

"Ewww, no romance at all"
Those exist? Like... Pokemon or something? Seems like every manga has some romance.

Kimi no Iru Machi! I made it to like chapter 70 before dropping it. I deserve a medal of valor for making it that far. Just so frustrating. Dude is a giant twat who cant make up his mind and the story is garbage (IMO) as a result. roll eyes

Well, there are a few like Liar Game. Although there are a few people shipping AkiyamaxNao...considering Akiyama equates Nao with his mother, not likely ^_^ But no, there aren't that many manga without romance. It's the same with novels :/

I applaud you for even reading it. I tried, failed and I'm probably only going to continue for the sake of reading it >.> That really is a horrible series.

Love triangles get dull after so many. Especially the ones where no one seems to learn a damned thing so the "I'm jealous because I saw you talking to that other guy/girl and I'm not going to tell you why I'm mad so I have more reason to yell at you or cry to make you feel bad." <--- (By the way, I think we've all met a person like that. The "react first, ask questions later" type)
