This week's poll comes from our member PinkShippuden. The given list of character types is not exhaustive, but just choose the one that you like best. Come on, you gotta at least like one of those character tropes... (although yes, some of them are cliche)

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: Do you gasp, squeal, curse, etc. when you read manga?
Choices:
Always - votes: 1909 (14.3%)
Most of the time - votes: 1938 (14.5%)
Sometimes - votes: 3990 (29.8%)
Rarely - votes: 2115 (15.8%)
Never out loud - votes: 1878 (14%)
Never at all - votes: 1540 (11.5%)
There were 13370 total votes.
The poll ended: September 7th 2013

Excluding the winning "Sometimes" option, it seems the rest of the choices are pretty evenly split. Not a common occurrence... *gasp*

i choose the last one, since i like my characters with brains, and usually to show them off is by plotting some scheme or other. i like arrogant characters with basis, like the mc in zippy ziggy and Kyou kara Ore wa!!. the type that will kick you to the dogs to give them chance to run away.

the most hated character is the happy-go-lucky, big eater, nakama first hot head that spew off arrogant claims without anything to back them up.

I'm guessing it means something along the lines of the "absentminded professor" trope.

I like the strong and stupid ones (like Dukchill Kim from Zippy Ziggy).
Also why aren't their any options of strong people?

This poll is to vague some choses are by looks, character and origin. It's like choosing between apples and potatoes... confused

The choices are really lacking, but I guess there's only so much you can cover with 15 options.

I choose the noisy, stubborn & hotheaded, aka TSUNDERE wink

I always root for characters who are helpful, kind, and cool since that is the kind of person I strive to be everyday.

Voted for "Scheming Plotter" since those kind often bring refreshing story or sometimes amaze me with what they did.

I really want...
naughty, strong ,scheming plotter aka clever
naughty as in those troublesome individual that likes to make trouble

The worst is hot-headed, know-nothing-noob

good-looking sure become the main factor first before intellect..

This poll reads like it was created by a 15 year old yaoi fangirl.

Where's the shy and awkward option? Also I agree with the above poster.

tsundere.

But I think it depents on the actual manga. It happens often, that I like the noisy comic relief, but in other works I hate that one the most, so...

Yeah, the scheming plotter type always make the story interesting. Too many fake 'smart' characters, we need real smart, clever, stoic and prudent type.
