That's because the rest is spent on bashing her, and only a smidgen of the rest quietly trying to enjoy her pairing or character. I don't see much else, unless you can point one out in recent pages, and nothing so mundane as to whether or not she is a virgin, or when a poster is not subsequently attacked for voicing an opinion on her.
I never hated much of the characters in general, either. Sure, I complained about some of them, but, not to the point of hate and bashing said character. I liked Kallen, though, she dropped down to cold neutrality afterwards.
To each their own. I only visit the Romance thread on the caving in of "... let's see. Chance to find some salvageable piece of information on C.C.: 0.001%. Chance upon lowering one's own intelligence in looking in the thread: 89%. Find general lack of intelligence in said thread: 101%."
You know, there was a time, like a month ago when i said, never going to Romance thread again. Well, i caved once, and it is like "if you can't beat them, join them" Madness all over the place, and while i DO know it is not right, sometimes i do enjoy it, i gotta admit.
Well yeah, in S1 especially, she was one of the coolest NOT annoying female leads i've even seen in an anime.
