Fatal attraction: Nine anime guys ladies want

Jan 07 // Pedro Cortes

Ladies love some shifty guys

Ladies love bad boys. That old chestnut exists for a reason, and this list of the nine anime dudes that ladies want in the sack proves that right. Don't get me wrong, there are a couple of nice, somewhat stable guys on the list, and that's great. However, the guy at the top of the list is the legendary thief Lupin the Third, followed Vegeta. That's right, the guy who tried to murder a father and his kid is second on a beefcake list. Maybe that sexy widow's peak just drives ladies wild.

Following those two shining examples of masculinity, there's Kazehaya from Kimi ni Todoke, Chiyaki from Nodame Cantabile and Amasawa from Studio Ghibli's Whispers of the Heart. I can at least understand these guys, though Chiyaki is often a jerk to poor Nodame. Not quite sure what ladies would like there. 

The next two blokes veer back into psychotic territory. Black Butler's Sebastian and One Piece's Zoro are understandable, if insane choices. Sebastian is a bloody demon and Zoro is a sword-obsessed warrior that's on the verge of cutting everything around him. I'm actually surprised Sebastian is this far down on the list, beat out by the nice guys, the Saiyan and an old-school thief. That's probably more reflective on the ladies polled than anything else.

The list closes out with two odd choices. Shinichi/Conan from Case Closed is odd if just for the fact that he's a little kid for most of the show. I can understand if the specific focus is on his older self. Finally, Snufkin from Moomin rounds out the list. This confuses me, as I've never seen the guy. He looks like a fusion of Geno from Super Mario RPG and Link. I guess he must have had an impact on the ladies of Japan to make it on this list, but I'm not seeing anything obvious here.

So, how would you have added to this list? I sincerely hope that not too many mass-murders are brought up, but if it floats your boat, go ahead and let us know in the comments!
