This week's poll about mascot characters comes from the mind of our member BlackOrion. Specifically, we're talking about mascot characters that happen to be small animals. Or I guess you could mean Haro from the Gundam series. Or like how some witches or sorcerers have familiars. Mahou Sensei Negima!'s Chamo? Kero from Card Captor Sakura? Could even simply be a pet cat or dog like in Pastel. Like them? Hate them? Your vote!

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: You are creating a manga with a female character, so her bust size is...
Choices:
Impossibly large - votes: 503 (3.3%)
Big - votes: 1130 (7.4%)
Above average - votes: 3518 (23%)
Average - votes: 6359 (41.6%)
Below average - votes: 1624 (10.6%)
Tiny - votes: 603 (3.9%)
Flat-chested - votes: 666 (4.4%)
He'll be a male with manboobs - votes: 869 (5.7%)
There were 15272 total votes.
The poll ended: November 9th 2013

Average is...average... This definitely was one of our most polarizing polls in a while.

Add the option:
"Nice for humor"

They give jokes but does not have a major influence for the story.

Yep, it depends on how they behave. But I don't like them, when their sole purpose is being cute.

I find most of the time animals end up being annoying and take away from the experience. So I would be happier without them in manga.

I usually end up liking the mascots more than the actual protagonists... There's a few annoying ones, but I generally like the stupid antics that they get into or when they troll the protagonists.

The option "Could care less" is utterly pointless and nonsensical.
For an good explanation, please see this video.
It should be "couldn't care less".

It'd be interesting to see a series, where the mascot becomes the main character. wink

>They're alright as long as they serve a functional purpose

Example: Menchi from Excel Saga

I love them, most aren't annoying at all. Sometimes they can be used to lighten the mood and as long as they aren't continually getting pointless screen time I don't see a problem with it.
