  • Be polite to your fellow forum members.
    Do not insult or harass other members for their likes and dislikes. Do not take it so seriously that you end up in an argument with another forum member because they express a fondness for a character you loathe. Discussion and good spirited banter are always welcome, but harassing people will not be tolerated.

  • Discuss, don't chat.

Majority's favorite! Banzai~

Still... Does look like Yomi after all.

vandakiara 2009-04-10 18:08

Everyone's fav <3 I've surrended to the Mio madness too... But I really like all of them so it's kinda hard to say who's my favorite... I bet this is gonna be the biggest character thread though :p

Littm 2009-04-10 18:12

As expected. Absolutely like her. Character development was really interesting in second episode for me.

So much of fanart with her.

Falkor 2009-04-10 18:12

[o] favorite character
[o] favorite character design
[o] favorite voice
[o] favorite personality

Mio is the only one I care about... :3

I can easily see her popularity skyrocketing with more episodes.

Meatrose 2009-04-10 18:13

Aye, she's awesome (so far). Like I said in the episode 1 thread; this show could be just about her and I'd still watch it. ^^;

typhonsentra 2009-04-10 18:16

Yeah, I think it's safe to assume she'll be the most popular cast member.

On pixiv, MOST of K-on pictures have Mio. It just tells a lot.

Starry Dust 2009-04-10 18:18

Me and her are alike.
Kudos to that.

>:3

Why and how does this happen?

It's like every fanbase has this tendency to latch on to particular characters for little to no reason. I remember a disproportionate amount of people expressing their love for Mio right from the start...

Flashbacks to Toradora...

ChocaPik 2009-04-10 18:22

I guess the ending help too.

There is no needed reason for love! *kira*

For me... She is the best of the group (as a character, I can't say she is great, but compared to the rest, she is at top), because compared to the rest, her character design, personality, and such are the best.

For some reason, I get the feeling it's more that people like the ending because of Mio than people liking Mio because of the ending.

Just a hunch.

's a matter of taste, I guess... but I just wonder why this particular type seems inevitably popular.

I, for one, like Mio the most because of the ending. That whole bit of animation just sold me completely on the show - and her. :eyebrow:

Again, it's probably just a matter of taste, but I for one absolutely hate the ending...

Probably that... I noticed the same phenomenon with Toradora.

Well, I don't think that we'll end up judging these characters by their actions but by their traits and personalities, and since this is an adaptation of a lighthearted yonkoma manga I wouldn't expect any serious character development. I haven't checked out the source material though, so I can't know for sure. I'd like to think that it's somewhat safe to assume that the characters you like in the beginning of a show such as this will also be the ones you like at the end of the show. Mio seems to be the unrivaled favorite right now, and I'd be somewhat surprised if that changed later on. Not that I would like to bet any money on that though. :heh:

Hedd 2009-04-10 18:33

her appearance gave me the impression of Yomi for Ga-Rei Zero even though her personality is a complete opposite

Kaisos Erranon 2009-04-10 18:36

Typical Yamato Nadeshiko appearance might explain it too. It's something that strikes a chord with men everywhere.

Now I'm wondering what, if any, was the equivalent of such a term for the non-Yamato peoples of Japan, such as the Ainu...


...but anyway.
