This week's poll comes from icassop. I feel it's an interesting question to ask what couple do you most cheer for in a series.

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

Previous Poll Results:
Question: Would you wear manga/anime related merchandise in public?
Choices:
I already do - votes: 3000 (21%)
I would if I owned any - votes: 6911 (48.3%)
No way - votes: 4404 (30.8%)
There were 14315 total votes.
The poll ended: June 30th 2012

If you want some manga/anime related merchandise, go to a convention. And what do you know, Anime Expo is this weekend. Or just order online...

Probably the love rival. In most times, the main couple just simply pisses me off.

I know probably the rest of the world will look up to something like Cinderella romance, but for me? Nope. Status is one thing, but she needs to have both brains and personality. I won't take the tsundere fits of a selfish girl. Or the kind, useless, crybaby tragic heroine that pulls hind legs. They don't deserve!
On the other side, there's alot of times where the guy treats woman like trash, and yet she falls for him... WHY!?!?

Most times I'll end up liking the antagonists more and rooting for them.

Let's just say this, the minimum I require in a relationship between the chars: Trust, loyalty, basic manners and morals, and of course that they fit each other! Forcing two that won't last long together with a stupid reason like "Oh~ My dear Juliet~ I love you~" That kind of thing lol. Did I mention? I hate Romeo and Juliet, traitors to their family. Srry that just popped up in my head randomly lol.

Actually, it depend on character's struggle; who fight the fiercest. Too bad I don't read anymore manga with strong love polygon sentiment. The one that is close to that, which is Kaminomi, has no basis why I should even cheer any one of the girl. Anyway, poliamory isn't so bad.

I usually find myself supporting the main couple.

Sometimes that's not always the case obviously, but I would say 98% of the time I want it to happen XD

I cheer for all the couples! But I voted for main couple because that's who you have to deal with throughout the whole series. bigrazz

I always end up cheering for the side couples since you know the main couple will end up together in the end but not for the side couples. Plus sometimes the side couples are more interesting to watch too, i usually find myself enjoying scenes of the side couples more than the main couple.

Kimi no Iru Machi made me despise most romance manga. Ruined an entire genre for me. I usually cheer for the main couple and side couples though. I almost always hate the love rival because there's almost always a reason to, i.e. revenge, they're a cheater, etc, but that's usually dependent upon the series.
Pondering up an imaginary relationship between characters is really sad for a straight man to do IMO, so I hope that a large number of women and/or gays are voting. Making up couples is something a middle-aged woman would do with her soap operas. roll eyes

Or anyone who got bored and has a working brain.... and in my experience those who propogate ratarded sexist stereotypes usually don't. So I guess I can comprehend your lack of understanding here.


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

If there's no fixed relationship yet, side character for me. I've grown to hate violent tsunderes, airheads, and all those generic main love interest archetypes. Especially when the first girl seems to always get the spotlight. I'd support them sometimes, but most of the time I don't

Not sure about manga, but I often root for the very cute chick to end up with some other very cute chick in movies.

Doesn't have to be a main or anything. In fact, I prefer romance to be a side-dish.

Where's the answer "I don't root for anyone but I feel like murdering most of them". There's no need to cheer as the obvious pairings always come to pass after a massive amount of conveniently convoluted misunderstandings. But hey, what can you expect from clueless guys and indecisive girls, who both can't speak up even given dozens of opportunities?

I like imagining my own couple. Sometimes the main couple is good enough, but other times it's just too forced for me to like it. I usually don't support the rival though.
