(First, props to Hao for the link).
Anyway, seems like Anime News Network released their survey results for the top 10 anime brides/grooms 2009 (“The Character I Want to Be My Bride/Groom”):
Looks like for the brides, K-ON! dominated the list, taking 3 spots out of 10, with 3 out of 5 of their main characters.
So the list is as follows:
- Mio Akiyama – K-ON!
- Hinaguku Katsura – Hayate the Combat Butler (previously, rank 1)
- Taiga Aisaka – Toradora!
- Rukia Kuchiki – Bleach
- Yuki Nagato – The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya
- Azusa Nakano – K-ON!
- Chrome Dokuro – Katekyo Hitman Reborn! (previously rank 10)
- Sheryl Nome – Macross F
- Yui Hirasawa – K-ON!
- Asuka Langley Sohryu – Neon Genesis Evangelion
No surprises with Mio – but I am surprised with Taiga, personally I would’ve thought there were more Ami/Minori fans out there (Toradora! reference).
Rukia, as a wife? Haha. Yuki I can understand, but Rukia?!
Anyway.. I’ll move onto the Grooms:
- Kyouya Hibari – Katekyo Hitman Reborn! (previously, rank 1)
- Gintoki Sakata – Gintama (previously, rank 2)
- Toshiro Hitsugaya – Bleach (previously, rank 8 )
- Mukuro Rokudo – Katekyo Hitman Reborn! (previously, rank 4)
- Sougo Okita – Gintama
- Date Masamune – Sengoku Basara (LOL!)
- Tsunayoshi Sawada – Katekyo Hitman Reborn! (previously, rank 6)
- Ichigo Kurosaki – Bleach (previously, rank 10)
- Sebastian Michaelis – Kuroshitsuji
- Toushirou Hijikata – Gintama
Not surprised to see Toshiro up there, but quite surprised about Ichigo.. hmm..
Otherwise, apart from Bleach and a TINY bit of Gintama, I wouldn’t know much more about the animes listed!
Interesting list none the less.
