I came here thinking this list would be about ideal marriage partners.... When in reality it's the exact opposite... It's just another popularity poll... I'd expect to see characters more like Asuna on that list honestly, I mean... Seriously.?

The popularity ranking is already too outdated to be a proper reference...
Let's close this and find another updated source, no way should we shovel this up over and over -__-

There's something wrong with this survey.... how come there are no One Piece/Naruto characters?

Needs to be updated

LOL @ HIBARI. He would suck to be a partner.

Asuka might be fun for a while...extracting that dere side. Though that's more Shikinami than Soryu. Mari would probably be an easier proposition though with mostly the same benefits...^^

oh mio, didnt see THAT one coming. NOT AT ALL. WOW

Anyway, fuck yeah Gintoki, that guy's a stud. He should be #1. Also what's with only sticking to like 3 or 4 anime in the top 10 dudes? Hitman Reborn, Gintama and Bleach.
People are creative yo, popular shit is popular :(. Also, Nagato Yuki? wat. Utter lack of WYang and Reinhardo-sama~

yuki would have been my #1 on that list over the other 9. people are still obsessed like tsundres with builds of 12 years olds smh

Yay Taiga! =)

Certainly one of the high choices for me but in marriage capacity, no one beats Sayuri from Kanon for me at least =P
