This week's poll comes from our member AliceinAmestris. So how do you like those love triangles? Seems like a staple scenario in most romance series.

You can submit poll ideas here (and try to keep them manga/anime-related):
http://www.mangaupdates.com/showtopic.php?tid=3903

There were 14837 total votes.
The poll ended: May 11th 2012

Martial arts, archery, and then e-sports. Video games was a joke, so it's amusing to see how many votes they got. (And I combined the results of the 2 Cycling options that I accidentally had)

I wish there was a 'don't love them, don't hate them' option.

I believe that "Don't care" fits that description.

I just see them as a tool to add a small, or big depending on the history, amount of drama to the whole thing, i don't mind them, i just don't care...

This is one of those "really, what does it matter?" polls. In any context who cares, you like what you like.

i prefer their absence but if done nicely i dont mind
also, i should be able to see why the 2 other characters fell in love with the main character

i dont understand why a lot of people hate them, situations like this happen in real life no?

I don't necessarily hate them but... most the times it = a wimpy indecisive female. Cheating going on behind the back and of course the crybaby "innocent" heroine.

Well, if that isn't the case, than I don't really mind. Honestly, many shoujo romance mangas suck. But I do like the romance when it has a good plot and often those are what makes me cry but yea ><. I dunno. Did I mention I hate tsunderes and macho males?

Went for the more than 3 option XD. Seems interesting... no I don't mean harem though!

The more the merrier. Well, more chaotic that merrier I suppose. Love polygons and beyond is where the real fun begins laugh

Honestly though, I don't mind them. I'll happily read a manga that has a love triangle without fuss.

need an option that is "only like them if there was actual romance otherwise it sucks" type of thing...i might be confusing it with harems

how can you hate tsunderes...i'll admit there are some bad tsundere characters but there are alot of good ones that you cant just hate. Also most seinen romance have good plots and good to read about with love triangles and stuff

i love love triangles, buut not 2 girls and 1 guy, i hate those, i like 2 guys and one girl.
but i can live without them... there arent really important, and most of mangakas dont know how to handle them.

If it is hentai, the more the merrier. If it is anything else, it depends on the story and the characters. Any indecisive cowardly male protagonists getting even one girl is better than he deserves. If he has two or more, he should be rolled up in a carpet and tossed into Tokyo Bay.
