I hate when the big-breasted, "perfect" girl, who has a crew of organized admires fawning over her impossibly cute, innocent/shy disposition falls for the dumb guy -for no reason what-so-ever- while the extremely evil and sly rival, who usually uses her phony flowery words and dazzling good looks to flirt with everyone, tries to break them up.

I hate almost every single one of them equally. Big-chested character is dependent on the character, depending on if it's the central part of their character, and if it is, if it's treated purely for comic-relief (like Mx0, where the big-chested side character is a running gag because her face is always hidden, but everyone knows it's her).

The flirt, I almost never have a problem with. If it's the "casanova that can't stand getting turned down", then yes, very annoying. Someone just casually flirting with every character usually ends up being funny, or has enough personality to be likeable.

The cow boobies usually are more trouble than they're worth and contribute nothing besides getting in everyone's way with their twenty pound knockers. Also, boob jokes are just so dumb

yeah that's the one i wanted to vote for in the poll. i hate reading a shojou where the girl is weak and stupid and has to depend on some guy to save her from everything.

the other stereotype i hate is the asshole douche-bag guy who does one nice thing and then the girl falls in love with him and lets him treat her like crap

How come there's no option for the 'ditzy and clumsy girl that always needs rescuing'? That's where my vote would go.

I voted for the dumb guy who always gets the girl because, while the rest of the choices have the potential to be funny (depending on their character), I see no excuse for a dumb guy to get the girl or for the dumb girl to get the guy. That stereotype shouldn't exist! I don't see how it could benefit a manga in any way! mad

Even worse the dumb judgemental crybaby girl getting the guy... I'm a hardcore shoujo fan and even I can't stand that...

To be honest any of these can be either not bothersome, or a serious bother depending on the way they are executed and how many of them appear in one manga. I voted for the "dumb guy who always gets the girl" though I would also like to include the gender reversed option in that, cause that's what tends to happen in shoujo. It's not neccessarily the airhead type that bothers me though, more the stupid jumping to conclusions selfish (crybaby) dumbass type =.=

Stange poll. Some "stereotypes" aren't stereotypes at all.

The perfect character. I hate them guts, but TRULY perfect characters are 99% shojo only thing. In shounen perfect characters are ether really f**cked up in the end (only "looking" perfect the first glance) or MC older brothers, senseis, friends they gonna outgrow anyway.

The big chested character Why this is a Stereotype? And big breasted compared to other characters or just looking "big breasted"? "Big breasts" it's not a part of a person character. It's just a trait. And like someonе mentioned before girls probably vote against it for the same reason guys vote against "The dumb guy who always gets the girl" biggrin

The characters with fan-girls / fan-boys Characters in manga have fanboys for a reason. It's all depend on you like the REASON someone got fanboys or not.

The shy, innocent, and cute character Shojo heroines? Coz i have a difficult time finding characters like that i can "dislike" in shounen manga. May be their just not someone type, but it's hard to "dislike them the most".

The flowery and dazzling character either "The perfect character"(or only "looking" perfect the first glance) or extremly stupid and naive.

The person who flirts with everyone Something from shojo manga? Coz it's hard to remember a character like that from shounen. And passing obscene jokes at any girl you see is NOT a flirting at all.
The dumb guy who always gets the girl The only real Stereotype here.

"How come there's no option for the 'ditzy and clumsy girl that always needs rescuing'? That's where my vote would go." "airhead option" etc.

This. and the naive MCs that somehow reflects good guys always win kind of thing :\

I had a hard time voting because I disliked all those stereotypes. Anyway I voted for the extremely evil and sly rival.

No one gives a shit what trite garbage you write here.

I really dislike the shy, innocent and cute character. Or, more correctly, the NAIVE characters. God do I hate them.

I rate manga with 5 being the average score.

It's a bit tough to go with just one but I chose the perfect character, since the archetype is more likely to show up over multiple genre's than the specific ones like the dumb guy who gets the meow girl which only really shows up in shounen, but would have been my second choice anyway. I guess you can always flip the sexes to whatever genre you like for it though, dumb girl gets the hot guy, dumb guy gets the hot guy, etc.

Harems and the dumb-average looking guy/hot girl premises have really put me off shounen.
