Current female positions:
1. Sasanka
2. Zessica
3. Mikono
4. MIX
5. Yunoha
Atleast Mikono is much more popular this time around, more people are liking her! Yay for character development. :P. And ofcourse Jin would be first. I'm surprised that Amata is not on there.. being the main character and all.

Wow, is this true? "Operator guy" beats the supposed male lead who doesn't even make the top 5. Meanwhile a gag side character fujoshi takes the crown for the girls, with the supposed female lead just about making 3rd spot.

There's something so wrong with this show that viewers care more about rarely appearing side characters than the supposed leads :S
I don't think this normally is the case from what I remember of other show's polls.

They will not do a serious poll about the characters, at least not at this point, I believe.

This poll is made by fans, not serious and the most votes comes from the male audience, this is obvious by the difference in votes between the two polls. However, we can see how most japanese see the characters at this point of the show, after all, serious or not, it's a poll, and the number of votes isn't small.

In the last poll on this site she ranked last. I always liked Mikono, and even if this poll is weird or not, I like to see that she is a little more pleasing to the public. Despite the way she is, I never saw anything wrong in her character as most people see.

yeah, true... and my point still stands, I think it's weird the public doesn't care most (or at least a lot)about the leads- that's why they're leads, to appeal to the masses.
Says something, but not sure what

I don't think there's anything wrong with her. She was/is a bit annoying and as the show started, Zessica was lightyears ahead of her (and her interactions with Amata are too bland for my taste). But Zessica has also become annoying to an equal or worse level so I can honestly say that both are alright, I don't mind them but I also don't feel attached to either of them.
.... going from that feeling I can see why they've been beaten by Sazanka of all people lol At least she's funny. These two? Downright depressing xD

The only time I found Mikono a bit annoying was the second half of the first episode. But ever since we got an reason for her behavior and alot of character development I've liked her ever since.

It's probably because the supporting cast gets just about, if not more, screen time then the leads. Like this episode was mainly about Andy and his pursuit for MIX, while finding Amata's mother gets sidelined until the end. :P Next episode is probably gonna be about Andy & MIX as well. While Amata and his mother.. Get sidelined.

I liked Zessica as the genki, flirty fighter girl, when she turned into the third wheel in a love triangle, not so much, now I just ignore her most of the time. :P

Mikono was depressing in the beginning but now she's changed. Take this episode for example

Spoiler:

Mikono was depressing in the beginning but now she's changed. Take this episode for example, while everyone else is depressed over MIX and not taking any action, she says "F that!" and goes after Fudo herself. If that's not BEAST behaviour then I don't know what is. :PP
Yep, I feel the same about Zessica. She started pissing me off the second she fell for Amata because it was clear she wouldn't stay badass and was just pathetically moping around :/
Meanwhile Mikono went from depressing to... well, I'm not sure what the word is for how she's acting towards Amata... if she was a guy, she'd be a douche, I guess (oh god, not trying to jinx things for her fate, re ep 19 revealations ).
I've yet to see this week's episode, so I can't comment on how she is there, but overall while she's definitely manned up, I can still see why she's not everyone's cup of tea... though as I said, I'm pretty much "meh" towards both girls at this point.

Over the weeks, I kept thinking MIX would be a much much better lead than either of these two. Well, we know what good that did her.
But that's why I'm totally ok with her and Andy getting tons of screen time. They are SO much more interesting than Amata, the drag, Mikono, the bore, and Zessica, the mopey^^' god Kawamori, what are you thinking??!

The problem is that the secondary characters had much more development than the main characters. Amata x Mikono was always something cute, but not HOT, FIRE!!! That kind of couple that makes you feel things in the stomach I think Amata has not changed in all these episodes, that explains why he's not popular. Zessica x Amata, there never was anything between them, beyond friendship, ok, Zessica loves Amata, but he never showed anything for her and in the end she became a love-sick girl who is crying for having her love unrequited.

Kagura and Mikono, only have two real meetings, nothing more, and yet I prefer this couple over all other couples, they need more development... Mix and Andy are already predestined, it was obvious what would happen, so I never worried too much, as I'm sure they will be together in the end. They are the kind of couple who entertains, but personally I don't really like Mix so much, I prefer Sazanka.

I've given up trying to find out about reincarnations, now I only root for the characters I like not die or something.

I hope that the main characters have more development, they need it, especially Amata.

Yup! Kawamori will probably give the answer of the reincarnation in ep 25-26........
Kagura and Mikono will interact more in ep 21!!!!
I like JinxYunoha for the best secondary characters couple!!!
Mix and Andy.... well they're more as a comedy couple with hole......

I forgot about Jin and Yunoha I really liked this couple, but people have become so obsessed about the two that I lost interest.

In the end, the poll ended this way:

Male:

1. Jin
2. Kagura
3. Operator Boy
4. Shrade
5. Cayenne

Poor Amata


Female:

1. Yunoha
2. Sazanka
3. Zessica
4. Mix
5. Mikono

I think the current condition of Mix make her win many votes yesterday

^ Amata was actually at 4th place until all the Shrade, Cayenne and Andy fans came out at the last hour.

At least Operator Guy seems to be well loved.

Re: taking of Biglobe polls seriously, there was a poll about anime characters you can't forgive.

5th - Nadia (Ashita no Nadia) 175 votes
8th - our very own Mikono, all of 125 votes
19th - Nina (Gundam 0083) 45 votes
25th - our very own Apollonius, 27 votes

...meanwhile Job Trunicht (LoGH) is 33th with only 10 votes.

So yeah. (In case someone hasn't noticed, it's basically a venue for trolls... it doesn't really reflect the popular opinion about anything in particular)

I just edited in the link, I forgot to do so.

But yeah, as I said - trolls. There's no point in taking these seriously. (I mean, really, Nadia of all people?)
