Share your list of runners-up whom you felt sympathy for – or even rooted for – during their ill-fated race for their beloved's heart.
Commentary encouraged, criticism welcome.
Ai yori aoshi – Tina Foster, Taeko Minazuki
Ano natsu de matteru – Kanna Tanigawa
B-gata H-kei – Mayu Miyano [talk about taking someone for granted!]
Byousoku 5 centimeter – Kanae Sumida [what a waste!]
Canvas 2 – Kiri Kikyou [wanted her to win]
Clannad – Kyou Fujibayashi [liked Nagisa but wanted Kyou to win]
Hachimitsu to clover – Ayumi Yamada
Kaminomi – Chihiro Kosaka [man, that last song, and her expression at the end...]
Kimi ga nozomu eien – Haruka Suzumiya [at least she got her own arc]
Kimikiss Pure Rouge – Yuumi Hoshino [wanted her to win]
Oreimo – Ruri Gokou [while Kirino was my favorite for the pairing, I really felt for Ruri – even if you think love is complete BS, it's nigh impossible to not get weak in the knees when listening to her confession-speech]
Rosario + Vampire – Mizore Shirayuki [I've listened to "Snowstorm" hundreds of times]
True Tears – Noe Isurugi [wanted her to win, was especially bummed out about this one]
Sakurasou no pet na kanojo – Nanami Aoyama [wanted her to win]
School Rumble – Yakumo Tsukamoto [wanted her to win; this one was a real downer]
Sword art online – Suguha Kirigaya [love Asuna but wanted Sugu to win], Rika Shinozaki
Zero no tsukaima - Siesta, Henrietta

Basically, yes. However, I think the topic is somewhat uncommon and I'm hoping that the thread will generate enough discussion to not be qualified as a "simple" listing thread. I note that my other listing thread (for favorite pairings) has been allowed to persist. We'll see what the powers that be decide to do.

Ehh... First we must define a "listing thread" from "shitposting thread"
This one is... both...
So you do the honour of backseat modding and locking this thread for good... xD
mods in MAL exist? XDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD
Mods don't exist in MAL, they prefer to be called "assassins" xD
