Japanese Fans Rank the Male and Female Characters They’d Like to Marry

This seems like such an obvious poll question, I’m surprised we haven’t featured it yet.

Japanese anime news site Anime Anime have just released the results of a poll that asked readers: which anime character would most you like to marry?

To be more accurate, the exact question was “realistically-thinking, which anime character would most you like to marry?” to which the immediate answer is “realistically, they don’t exist,” but that hasn’t stopped legions of fans from daydreaming about their ideal waifu and, uh, hasubando.

Anyway, on with the lists, which come in male and female versions:
