How did I know the Danganronpa character was going to win the poll...? Rolling Eyes

Ordinarily, I'd have preferred if Kei and Yuki or Rally and Minnie-May were at the top of the list, but all things considered, Revy and Eda are the pair most likely to drive into the Grand Canyon in a convertible because "F*** da police!". Knowing Mako, she'd want to chase after them.

I dunno, wouldn't Kei & Yuri be a little too boy-crazy for their off-hours dates to be considered a "Thelma & Louise duo"??

My favourite paring is Najica and Lila from Najica Blitz Tactics - they manage to take down anyone in their way.

That is a nice list. It makes me really want to watch some of those shows again.

My favorite dynamic duo that is not on the list is Eclair and Lumier in Kiddy Grade
I am also very fond of Morgan and Octavia in Tears To Tiara, but they are not main characters, and they do not really fit the profile. I just like to mention them whenever I get a chance.Smile

I cannot vote in the mohawk poll because I do not know any of those characters.

So someone remembers Noir, that's good. When I saw the list, I expected them to be in and they were.

As for this week, I choose that red hair guy from Kill la Kill, probably the only one I know. So this week mohawk, next week, make a pompadour poll Smile

The absence of Nichijou's Nakanojo-kun in the mohawk poll seems like a major oversight to me, as he's the only anime character i know of that has a fully natural mohawk. His hairstyle has a decent number of gags that focus on it too, which makes it even more odd that he's not included here, especially as many of the poll's other characters really only sport a mohawk to match their punk/thug persona.

While I might quibble about the exact order, these are all excellent choices, and I do agree that the top duo is the one most likely to have a Thelma and Louise ending. I also agree that Eclair and Lumiere (although they're not the ones from their series which actually do have a T&L ending) and Morgan and Octavia would probably be the most worthy #8 and #9 picks.

No complaints with the list, but I was surprised to see Milly and Meryl missing. They'd drive off a cliff too, though not as a "F*** da police!" move. Smile

I'm not sure "grounded" is a word I'd ever attach to Mako, although I suppose it is accurate compared to everyone around her.

I really like this column - always look forward to it!

I'm surprised Chū from YuYu Hakusho didn't get in on the mohawk list. His mohawk is epic.

Well at least Tiger Mask scored third on the previous wrestling poll, but I'm pretty sure he could topple Zangief. Just my opinion.

Disappointed by the lack of Nadie and Ellis.

Surprised that Ryuko and Mako made this list. Well, the only time I can think of Mako having her Louise moment was during the whole race to the school deal. She took to the truck turrets like a " champ".

Very cool list. I like everyone on it too.

Agreed, I also thought of Eclair and Lumiere.

3. Kirika and Mirielle

That would be "Kirika and Mireille." Yeah, the ADV dub mispronounces Mireille's name, but they spell it correctly in the subs and credits.
