What is surprising about mecha characters topping character polls in a pro-mecha magazine? At least it's not like when Gundam Seed was airing and 7-9 of the 10 positions went to those characters.

Those 'lovely' characters would have to fight with both Madoka and K-On girls, which permanently occupy about 5-6 slots already, not to mention Sheryl "Here to stay" Nome, leaving only 3-4 actual contested spots each month -_-

My reaction to seeing both first places.

At first:

Then:
It's an alright list, til I see who's on top and then Eww.... Shu shouldn't be 1st, because the qualification is that you have to be a man. And as we all know, Gai is the only one with balls in that series.

Can't beat super flying sex dolls though. Perfect for H-Doujin

I would have been more surprised about Koyomi winning #2 for male characters were it not for the fact I ended up teaching a couple Japanese women studying English here about Crunchyroll so they could watch Nisemonogatari a few weeks back. Maybe that explains the manservice in episode 5 of Nise too.

And this is why I answer "how can Guilty Crown sell so well despite having such shoddy writing?" with "consider the genre". It's sales aren't nearly as strong as some similar shows.

That said, I can't compare to Gundam Seed specifically since I haven't seen it. Anything specific that you think explains the popularity of the characters in question?

They're more or less the same character archetype.

Kira and Shu: Whiny male leads. Both are normal kids (not really, as it turns out they are genetically superior; not yet confirmed for Shu but it will happen) forced/manipulated into fighting by others, they whine a lot during the first half of the series before eventually manning up and becoming the messiah. The main difference between the two is that Kira's development was consistent and written pretty well in Gundam SEED. He was also likable before he turned into Jesus in the sequel. Anyway, they're the kind of characters otakus like because they can easily identify with them. Seeing them go from total beta to badasses probably makes them feel better about themselves too.

Inori and Lacus: perfect pink haired singing dolls. Their personalities (Inori has a personality? ) are as one-dimensional as it gets. I suspect they are loved by some for roughly the same reasons they are hated by others.

That's a fair criticism of Inori, but I don't agree on Lacus. I found Lacus to have an interesting blend of idealism and pragmatism to her. Her goals were in some ways lofty, but in other ways simple, and she went about achieving them with a certain practicality. I also liked the subtlety of her character. Lacus had a certain human quality to her that I find that Inori lacks.

Mind you, that changed in Gundam Seed Destiny, where both Lacus and Kira were too often presented as downright infallible and unbeatable.

^She is most definitely more interesting than Inori, I'll give you that. Although I've been trying hard for the past seven years to pretend that series doesn't exist, Destiny has probably biased my opinion of Lacus. That said, I didn't like her much in SEED either for that matter (I was all about Cagalli... another character ruined in Destiny) but I guess she wasn't so bad back then.

Sorry to intrude in this topic, but since i don't know which source is reliable, could you tell me where i can find a poll with the most liked characters ever? I just want to see which spots my favorite characters occupy; everytime i see lists where, for example, very known names don't even appear.

The list should include all the most liked characters between 2000-2012. The poll hasn't to be some random poll made in some random forum, come out of 100 votes in total. Some reliable source, that shows the choices of a good amount of population, and not counting only few hundreds.

Sorry again for the off-topic.

PS
Is that Yuno in your avatar, ?

It shows that those men have commitment to family... Or something like that...
