I cheer for the main couple if I think both characters are compatible. As readers, we are set up to cheer for the protagonists, so I assume we automatically cheer for the main couple? I was thinking the last option in the poll is weird, but realized what it means- I do that too sometimes! eyes

..... I'm calling you a moron btw... just in case it slipped by


Agreed! This guy probably lives all by himself under a rock somewhere. What kind of idiot would post something in a public forum that show his prejudices in one go? Loser!

i vote for the rivals.. often in "harem animes", the main character is cheesy and boring such as a childhood friends, and all the other characters are so much more interesting.

My own imaginary couple that I wish would happen. I mostly read romance shoujo/josei so I usually see stupid heroines...which I totally hate. I tend to make my own coupling to keep myself interested. biggrin

It really really depends on the series, but I voted for the main couple. The love rival is fun to cheer for sometimes, but usually that ends up frustrating. It's hard to cheer for something you know will fail in the end. sad
Side couples usually just bother me, because they are often filler. But sometimes they are tear jerking, and I cheer for them.
Imaginary couples, while fun to think about or imagine fanfiction for, are way too impossible to expect to ever happen. Like, I'm not into cheering for something that I know will never even occur. It's like punching myself in the foot. However, the "imaginary couples" that become real are my favourite couples. The ones that you never expect and only dream about in jest suddenly becoming real is the best twist ever.

So yeah, main couples mostly because I don't like dreaming about things that will never be.

I can't readily prejudge him/her since there are two possibilities;
1. He/She is anonymous, you can't track him/her down, responsibility thus be a minor issue.
2. He/She already has sound argument to back up his/her statement.

#1 is commonly occurred, while #2 happened only sometimes. However, (in minuscule chance that) if #2 is the case here, you two people might get your mouth shut in such embarrassing manner. I usually play with #2 with intention of uncovering naive and crude people; but it's a load of pain to have my argument get through to such people.

grammar mistake is intentional, grammar nazis need their entertainment.

Love rival both in shounen and shoujo
(cause there is a 90% that the main character falls for a tsundere)

Sound argument? Well, you can count yourself in the same category as him (I highly doubt that the poster was a 'she')! If you're so keen on defending someone who thinks they are authoritative enough to denigrate 'women and gays', I think you're the one should shut up, you faux-intellectual! no

I tend to pair side characters that look like they have chemistry or look like they'd be a good couple. A lot of times the main couple are just...urgh/boring/cliche/ annoying/you know what I mean...

Side couples that I cheered for from manga/anime that I have recently read/watched: ChunWoo and ShiHo (The Breaker), Musica and Reina (Rave), Claire and Chane (Baccano), Tadashi and Akira (Special A) and lol, even Takagi and Satou (Detective Conan).

I really hate love triangles & polygons, so I generally don't read stories like that. Somebody always ends up hurt... I know real life is like that too, but I generally prefer sugar sweet stories to relax and leave the real world behind, that's what stories are for to me. So I voted 'main couple', since there usually isn't anything else in the stuff I read O.o

Not sure if it was mention already, but I wanted to see Ami Kawashima x Takasu Ryuuji (Toradora!) instead of main girl

also Junpei Manaka x Aya Toujou (ichigo 100%) would have been a pretty cool ending too
