REALLY depends on the characters/writing.

Most of the time the couples are blocked by pathetic misunderstandings that somehow manage to stretch multiple chapters/volumes and that flat-out pisses me off (if you're stretching a misunderstanding THAT long, you are not a serious couple, kthxbai.)

That said, I'm a sucker for side couples. Even though they're usually the "sane" ones, they always get the least amount of face time. Call it rooting for the underdog.

Quote from Drayen
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.

This, for example:
Quote from archknight
Not sure if it was mention already, but I wanted to see Ami Kawashima x Takasu Ryuuji (Toradora!) instead of main girl
add in Kirito x Shinon (Sword Art Online) or Layfon x Felli (Chrome Shelled Regios).

Depends on which couple do I like the most. Usually the main couple's fine, yet not always. Side couples usually get my pick when a story is kind enough to portray the characterization of their romance.

I fail to see how you can vote for this properly. For scenario-questions like this, context is everything. Sometimes you prefer this/him/her to win, sometimes that/it/the alien in the shed.

true enough, i failed to find anything to vote for since it's all about contex. i would vote for someone outgoing and fighting (to get the love) rather than someone that is just keep quiet and expect people to understand them (but somehow manages to complicate the relationship). depending on the story, this can be the main, rival or side character

I cheer for the couple i like, even if they are main, love rival or side... sometimes you feel like the love rival is the one for the main guy/girl and sometimes you feel like the main couple are one for each other.

So i'd love to have a 5th, as theres no 5th i went with the love rival because they are the ones that suffer the most in many of the romance series i read.

Well this really depends on the characters in the story for me, because sometimes I like both the characters of the main couple, and sometimes I like the love rival's character more. What I pick also depends on which character fits the main character better in terms of compatibility. In my opinion of course.

Is this an invitation for a debate? Because you've insulted me. (Or you can't help but write in such insulting manner). I see you're quite senior in this forum, have been a member longer than me. And I suspect you're past your teen age (I just found out you're 27, not 12). But why this immaturity? You know, I'm kinda pissed upon reading. But I guess you're the epitome example of my #1 case, anonymous and irresponsible; Troll. I bet you're kinda difficult to talk reasonably too. No, I'm not in rage. I'm cool as cucumber toward you. none

about that3rdguy who happen to be the beginning of all this, he already said his opinion is his. Not people generally. He must have some experience/argument to have that opinion shaped in his mind. About that saimne person, I think he/she's intelligent to have his/her attack aimed at that3rdguy in person. And his/her words is well written. About you, you let your emotion get the better of you. I seen you're quite respectable toward gay people. A good thing in my opinion, but having your belief bruised should not be taken as a permission to go on a rampage (if you're intelligent person as you claim to be). It will only shows you don't deserve your age. You know what, I took a pity on you.
