So which one is your favourite and whom do you support. Mine is Yokino-Hachiman-Yui from Oregairu and I support Yukino.

Edit: Replaced Asuna-Kirito-Alice in the polls with Setsuna-Haruki-Kazusa. Reason is according to light novel readers, Alice doesn't have romantic feelings for Kirito which the anime just dragged out.

Probably Oregairu as well since it has the most interesting male in the poll. Yui best girl.

I'd also go for Yukino-Hachiman-Yui. There's no doubt that Yukino is the best for Hikky!

Why is Macross not on this list? it is literally the best love triangle anime of all time.

Ah so many great picks, Chihaya-Taichi-Arata, Kouko-TadaBanri-Nana and Yui-8man-Yukino are my favorites.

But where the flip is the one that truly matters Kuroneko-Dickhead-Bitchass

Also, when a girl is pretty much confirmed to end up with the main dude, that wouldn't that be called "Love Triangle", amirite? A love triangle is when more than one girl has a slight chance on winning, right?

This is memory based on what I remembered at the moment. If you like something else then just put vote the other and state your favourite. 🙂

Some are annoying I know. But there are certain good triangles as well.

Even among this list, I feel 1 or 2 Shoujo triangles are annoying. 😂

I know but people still treat them as triangles. Like the one with Asuna-Kirito-Alice, it's pretty much confirmed with Asuna but still people ship Alice with him.

as much as i like the Kokoro Connect one Oregairu is just by far my favourite romance and the love triangle works just perfect thru the series, season 3 gonna be SO MUCH Hype, also i think u missed some like White Album 2 Touma-Setsuna-Haruki, Nagi No Asukara Hikari-Chisaki-Manaka but in nagi theres so many triangles i dont know which ones the best but their a bit more underground so i see why they arent on the pool

I'd go with chihaya-arata-taichi here because this one feels fair where both arata and taichi has a chance. It doesn't seem to be a case with oregairu where it was clear from first episode that yukino will always be the one (Idk what happened in vol 13 and 14 tho).
“The sound of the Gion Shoja temple bells echoes the impermanence of all things;
The color of the sala flowers reveals the truth that to flourish is to fall.
The proud do not endure, like a passing dream on a night in spring;
The mighty fall at last, to be no more than dust before the wind.”

love triangles are shitty because it's always lame drama and feeling bad for whoever loses


but if I had to say, my favorite would be Mira x Arata x Lilith from Trinity Seven because both girls surprisingly have equal chances (at least from up to where I've read)

Without a doubt the best love triangle Japan has ever written that I've seen is the one from the White Album 2 ~Closing Chapter~ visual novel. Well, of course that's also one of the best dramas you'll ever see in general but the love triangle is what makes it tick at its core

Buuut if we're just talking about anime then I'm not so sure: the WA2 anime only covers the prologue after all so that doesn't really show much of why it's so good. Most of them tend to be more detrimental than beneficial

The C&G pairing was great but I'm not sure it qualifies as a 'love' triangle. Griffith seemed to be the charismatic inspiration more than a love interest in Casca's eyes, it seemed to me. And I don't remember any romantc intention from Griffith (the ending doesn't count in my mind). Then again I never read the manga and it's been a long time since I've seen the anime so maybe I'm forgetting..

I agree with WA2. People tend to love it or hate it but lots of angst-ridden meat to be had there. I'd also say Hana Yori Dango and Winter Sonata, but I'd only recommend them to those with a high tolerance for melodrama.

None. I don't like Love Triangles, most of them are just annoying and badly written. I would love to see more polyamorous relationships instead, but good luck finding them...

Well it's not entirely clear and my memory isn't all that good either. I think Casca certainly did have feelings for Griffith at some point, but Guts complicated everything.

I don't like them so much...I normally end up HATING 'the third wheel' for bothering my ship. xD

Now I DO like OT3s....like "I always want these three characters together". I feel this way about Emma, Ray, and Norman and also Kamina, Yoko, Simon (before Simon met Nia of course)

RukaxMikanxNatsume from Gakuen Alice isn't too bad either.

Normally I'd say I don't like any love triangles because I'm almost always just gonna like one of the girls while the other is an obstacle/annoyance/enemy but I'll play along.
Kotonoha/Setsuna/Makoto from Shiny Days because both of the girls are great, both deserve him and whichever one wins the other girl can accept it without resentment because they're both nice and neither of them did anything underhanded. And the fact that it's a visual novel where either of them can win makes it easier for me as well since I don't have to permanently feel sorry for anyone.

If it wasn't for one option, all of your options would have been spoiler.

Because the end game for all of them is already or MOST LIKLEY the first name. Except for one. Not really a spoiler when I add 'Most Likely' and 'Except for One'.

If I had to choose, I would probably pick Hachimitsu to Clover where I was torn because of Morita-Hagumi-Takemoto. The ending was sad yet very impactful and thought provoking and perhaps satisfying. But I won't select Other option as it's pointless and ruins the purpose of a poll.

I cannot pick any other option as I have heavy bias for all of them (except for SAO which is sh!t, so I don't care anyways). So, cannot associate my OTPs with the Love-triangles.

I am also not gonna pick Y-H-Y because of Iroha. I love her as much as I love Yukino and Yui. So, cannot really say it's my favourite love triangle when I have to leave out my Iroha.

@Nillwas: It could never be a favourite love-triangle for me for exactly the same reason I stated above. I only ever liked one of the two girls.

Oh really!
I didn't actually know all the results. So naturally I kept all my preferred choices at first. Lol
Seems like the author's and my taste match most of the times. 😂

And all of my preferred ones (bar SAO, I don't care about it) are on the left EXCEPT FOR THE SAME ONE which you got wrong! There is no competition for that one either for me. :P

Edit: Oh, yes. Y-H-Y doesn't exist for me.
It is

But if you are into love triangles, then you should really watch WA2 if you haven't already. It's actually very good and will make you want to do a new poll. Just see how many are mentioning it here in this thread.

You don''t have to watch White Album, White Album Second Season by the way. Those are craps and not related to the story of WA2 (different characters unrelated to the WA and WA Second Season). It is the reason why WA2 is often overlooked by fans because of how crap WA and WA Second Season are.

Ok I'll watch that. I'm not totally into love triangles but I like only well written triangles. The other forced ones are too annoying.

Btw, you can try out SAO Alicization. It's not as trash as the first 2 seasons honestly.
But still feels trash when compared to the awesome SAO Progressive. Lol

But her development really impressed me, so much that she became one of my favourite anime characters.

My favorite anime love triangle is Sentarou Kawabuchi x Kaoru Nishimi x Ritsuko Mukae (x Junichi Katsuragi x yurika fukahori) in Sakamichi no Apollon. Well, even if this becomes a pentagon at some point of the story, it goes back to a love triangle. The feelings are better rendered in the manga though...

Crap. You're right. There were two Nana's now that I look at it. Linda and Banri's neighbor. Now I feel like an idiot.

Although, I still don't think it was much of a love triangle.

Ooh, love triangles my favorite. Lots of interesting examples in the poll, so let's break it down. Spoilers of course, so yeah.











Havent seen Oregairu yet, so can't say and didn't make it far enough into Yona of the Dawn to even see the triangle form. So from those, I'd give it to White Album 2 with Fruits Basket at a close second. Why did I spend my lunch break writing this, lol.
