I think we might be seeing this a little out of context seeing the titles it looks like this was mostly young titles so most likely young kids answered the question.

If I was given the question what anime dude would you like to marry I could think of a character to answer with, but I'm not taking the questions seriously. It's kind of a fun what if thing. It's the same with movie stars I know I'm never ever going to date one but sometimes its fun to think of it.

So all in all I think these people might be more in touch with reality then you think, or rather young.

what? Am i alone on this. I have never thought about this ever in my life. I watch anime to get away from stupid stuff like this. I watch it to see a good complicated story and characters, unlike a lot of media here. This article just made me feel stupid. Some people seriously need to get outside a bit.

TT, you are no fun sometimes. Like brand said, its just a little silly poll that really shouldnt be taken too seriously or make you ponder the mentality of the over-obsessed otaku and what might be wrong with some of them. Your just reading too much into it.

And I would totally love to have Yuki or Rukia be my wife. Oh! And Vash the Stampede would be my best friend! We will eat doughnuts together. and we will get shot at together. and we will cry together. and we will not shoot our guns until episode 5 together! and wewilllivethousandsofyearstogether! Andwewillturnourarmsintogiantgunsandblowupstufftostoparemissguidedevilbrothertogether! Thenwecanplaycards! Andwecanplaytag! Andwecan......

See. Have fun with yourself. If you get embarrassed by this then you've already lost at being an otaku or anime fan. It's when some fan girl bust out the yaoi paddle when you start slapping yourself on the forehead...

Am I the onlyone who finds it humorous that they skipped the pitfall of making a stupid statement by skipping Haruhi Suzumiya (crazy, maybe a bit dangerous), and Ritsu from K-on (crazy), but then somehow NGE's Asuka got in there?

When I first read the article's title, I thought it meant the poll indicated that voters wanted K-ON's Mio and Reborn's Hibari to wed. The thought made me twitch. Laughing

About the Hinagiku thing from Hayate the Combat Butler she's been the most voted character in both the manga and anime for all there popularity polls so it isn't surprising

For a moment, I thought they said Mio and Hibari should get married.

....He'd KILL her!

Actually, Hibari's a jerk, I can't understand that one. But I'm a girl and even I'd marry Mio X3

I think the guys' tastes are better than the girls'... I guess it's the difference between "a character you'd like to marry" and "a character who's really hot," since many male characters who fall into the latter category have no personality.

Everyone would be all "That's pathetic, I would never vote." Then they would secretly vote even though they are embarrassed. People take things to seriously.

I myself would have voted for Taiga.

While I realize this poll and its results are meant to be taken as light and harmless fun, the one reason I shudder is because I wonder if, among the participants, there was anybody of a similar mindset to that otaku in Japan who tried to petition for an marriage license to wed Mikuru Asahina of TMoHS last year.

No, I'm totally not making that up. True (and thus somewhat sad) story.
