Over 400 votes were counted in our most popular poll yet! The discussion was heated, and anime fans across the nation had their voices heard! It was an intense battle between everyone’s favorite tsunderekko and the up and coming crossdresser! So who takes home the victory? Whose cuisine reigns supreme!?
As I expected, School Rumble Ni Gakki kicks all other anime in the butt winning 30% of the vote and taking 1st place! In second place was XXXHOLiC TV with 14%, and third was Strawberry Panic! taking 9% of the vote. The competition was pretty fierce; there’s a lotta anime coming out this Spring.
That brings us to the new anime poll: What are you calling the Ergo Proxy heroine by? Her name is written in katakana as “ãƒªãƒ«ãƒ»ãƒ¡ã‚¤ãƒ¤” so this leaves her romanized name up to interpretation.
A quick survey of the anime blogosphere shows that:
- Washi calls her “Lill”
- Cinnamon Ass calls her “Lil”
- Kabitzin calls her “Real”
- scottfrye, jason, and I call her “Ril”
- Others will refer to her as “Lir”
So what’s your say in her name? Sure, a cyberpunk chick by any other name would be as sweet, but maybe we can get around to choosing a standard name for her.
And for simplicity, can we all agree that her last name is “Meyer?” That would be great.
In the battle of Meganekko, Yomiko Readman wins! I guess I underestimated the power of her hot meganekko looks coupled with her ability to use paper as a weapon. Don’t worry Ayuki, I’ll win a poll for you one of these days!
The next poll: Which Spring 2006 anime are you looking forward to most? I figured if I didn’t do it, someone else would. Unless someone already has… The choices for this poll include some, but not all of the new season’s anime. This is because just about everyone and their mom has an anime premiering this Spring. My sidebar will cry if I put them all in there. The choices are:
The results to last week’s poll were truly inspiring. The number of people spending money on anime, manga and whatnot far exceed the number who don’t. Furthermore, there were a lot more people who spent over $200 a month than I had estimated. It makes my spending seem paltry, to say the least.
This week’s poll is sort of a continuation of the top ten anime meganekko list I did earlier this week. If you didn’t like how your meganekko placed in my rankings, now’s your chance to make a difference! The poll? Meganekko Fever (based on the name of a magazine that Yuuichi was forced to destroy, the humanity!)!
This is also a blatant reattempt to “win” a poll for the lovely Ayuki of Kashimashi anime fame.
If you don’t remember the various meganekko, here’s a refresher:
Since the votes have pretty much stopped on the last poll, I’ll call it closed. Fuji-nee is the winner with 28% of the vote, with Ilya in 2nd place and Ayuki a close 3rd. It seems that I and the Ayuki Alliance have failed… Though I can see the appeal of Fuji-nee…
Fuji-nee – grabbed from here
The next poll question is: How much do you spend monthly on Japanese media? This includes anime, manga, j-pop, figures, etc.
Since I started Basugasubakuhatsu, I’ve been buying more and more stuff. While this is not necessarily a bad thing, my bank account doesn’t like me anymore. I haven’t hit rock bottom yet, but it’s only a matter of time ;).
This is where the money you spend on anime and manga goes…
