Such a stubborn girl... I love it! :P

She's the keeper of the series if you ask me.

Hm, am I the only one here that actually likes her even more when she's using her Kansai dialect?

I hope that is true. Would make her by far less annoying and make her likeable.

Someone who is beautiful, hardworking, ambitious, arrogant yet willing to admit and listen, works many jobs and goes to school. It sounds like someone I once knew and grew infatuated with.

My type of gal.

She can be such a wonderful character once she softens up with her struggles.

For me, she's a very likeable character.

A shy tsundere that's heavy on the dere, with impressive industriousness, and a great "girl next door" look. She gives this eccentric cast something of a "straightman" while still being distinctive enough in her own right to stand out well.

I don't have a huge favorite in the love triangle, but I do lean towards her.

I love Nanami above all the girls in the anime probably because of the tied hair. I want to hug her. I still wish for her to end up with the MC but that will not likely to happen...

If Mashiro is the one that pushes him forward, then Nanami is the one who keeps things grounded and familiar for Sorata and is his 'break' away from all the crazy antics that keeps thrown his way. In a place were everyone follows their own set of laws, she's the one person that has any commonly accepted sense Even the other guys of Sakurasou doesn't cut him any slack and never fails to tease and messed with him This is made very obvious when you listen to the audio drama where Sorata fell sick- Nanami was the only one that didn't immediately made fun of him.

However, Nanami does have a bad side which we've all seen and that she can get pretty naggy and confrontational at times- The Anime did a great job mitigating it after the first few episodes involving her. Hopefully they can do that for the up coming story arc.

I think one of the major factors that makes both Mashiro and Nanami so likeable is that unlike other romantic interest, both of them actually care about the Protagonist as more than just a love partner- Sure there's still that, but they do it mostly because they want what's best for him, and not so that he would show affections to them. What's more, their entire lives does not rotate around just Sorata- they each have their own dreams to work towards.

She has the misfortune of being the (relatively) normal, diligent girl in a genre where most MCs would rather dash right past her in order to court the freeloading headcase hanging upside down from a telephone line with her skirt up over her head.

Like others have said, I don't have any any strong preference for her over Mashiro in the love triangle, they're both good characters, and it's not as if Nanami doesn't have her zany moments too. But it's still going to be heartbreaking when things reach the inevitable conclusion.

Tis a Pretty True Statement bout The MCs' usual preferences. Meh, you'd think the girl with such a large head start might have had better chances with Kanda.

Poor thing she’s the secondary female lead, even though her helpful and sweet persona match perfectly with sorata IMO, and i could already guess they always get the short end of the stick.

Its actually pretty realistic that the MCs don't pick the "normal" girl. Most people also never pick the normal guy/girl irl. No one wants normal, okay, no risk, safe or summarized boring relationships.

People want the girl or boy who is exciting, crazy, new, awesome, funny, over the top who makes your life a roller coaster ride where you can't catch your breath. Cause in the end this person might slow down a little when they grow older and you have a good balance between crazy and normal. On the other hand people who you would call "normal" will always be just that.

Besides, Nanami has a couple of characteristics which are quite literally annoying as hell.

^That's a very big assertion to make, especially given the very different cultural outlook that Japan has with the concept of Yamato Nadeshikos.

Yamato Nadeshikos aren't normal girls... If anything they're super girls.

I'm aware of that, but the point I was making is that the previous assertion about how nobody wants a real-life relationship with a person who isn't crazy and exciting is a very questionable one.

I'm assuming most of the people who post in a English forum etc. are individuals who live in a western culture so the mc basically behaves like most people in that community. Honestly, people who are lets say 16-25 won't pick the "rational" choice if they are offered both.

Not commenting on what the Japanese audience is thinking.

I think it's even more questionable if a person picks a lover base on what's beneficial and rational rather than what they feel.

And I'm pretty sure in real life, not many people can stand eccentric... At least not for long unless you're naturally on the same wavelength.
