Boys Over Flowers' Rui, Lupin III's Fujiko top list for giving & getting chocolates

The Japanese portal site Cobs Online posted the results of a survey of the anime and manga characters that people want to give chocolates to, and receive chocolates from. In Japan, women give chocolates to men on February 14, and men return the favor on White Day (March 14).

Between December 7-13, Cobs asked its users which character they want to give chocolates to — and receive chocolates from. The results from the self-selected pool of 410 male and 590 female respondents are as follows:
