The link for the new poll points to last weeks poll, which is obviously over.

But guessing the correct link for the new poll is not very difficult

While there are a lot of other good options for this list, the four that I am familiar with (the top four) are all very solid choices.

Admittedly she is not a wrestler, but I'd go with Yawara, the fashionable judo girl for the survey.

The lack of Sanji is disturbing.

We already got a main character and a side character from two different Rumiko Takahashi shows on this list. The fact that she's got "anything that moves, please" characters down to a science doesn't mean they all have to be here...

Lynzee usually tries to spread the love around on the List; I guess she made an exception for a list about spreading the love around. Cool

(Fukuyama from Girls Bravo? Anyone who builds a hidden arena under a baseball stadium, just to watch girls mud-wrestle, has to be worth a few points here.)

Seems this is a trope from 10+ years ago for the most part... not a lot of recent examples.

No Jesus Burgess in the new poll? He'd trounce any of those listed with ease.

I would have thought Kuroko Shirai from 'A Certain Scientific Railgun' would have at least made the list.

Well, number one could be Yamada from B Gata H Kei, for a certain definition of love and a certain definition of relationship.

Quote:
1. Ryo Saeba (City Hunter) Ryo Saeba trademarked "chivalrous pervert." The handsome private detective is always up to his eyeballs in requests and buxom women. Besides investigating, his secondary motivation is "mokkori chance," or basically the opportunity to get down with one of his clients. Or a random girl on the street. His heart is really already taken by his female partner, and only weakness - Kaori.


Sounds so similar. Except she's female and she ends up kind of in love instead. Which she denies to the end.

A more - I'll go with normal- example would be Saori from Girls Und Panzer who has the distinction of being boy crazy in a series that has no boys. The lack of an opposite sex doesn't stop her from trying and, even funnier, it doesn't stop some of the freshmen girls from having boyfriends of their own.

Their advice? She should just go out with the tank.
