Y'know, Negima WAS awesome...
For the first 18 volumes.
Japenese people have horrible taste when it comes to character populary polls.
It doesn't help that getting a job in the industry, especially if you're making a serial, requires a lot of fantastic or out of the ordinary elements. That in mind makes it a given that most people have a predetermined desire to get involved in aforementioned fantasy. Sure, there's Slice of Life, Romantic Comedy and such. More often than not there's still going to be some surrealistic and quirky thought put in. It's all part of High Concept: in the case of Shonen, emphasizing the excitement and thrill aspects by taking, say, Table Tennis and doing something weird like putting it in space. This is how people get hooked, so it shouldn't come as any surprise if popularity polls seem strange or off in the case of certain characters. It's just young boys and girls wanting a fantastic escapist magazine to fill up a part of their daily life; the rest are looked upon with as much scorn as the great neckbeards of Marvel and DC.
It's no Golden Age for Japan or America.

I heard this was a good series, so I read up to when those two Soul Reaper guys came to take that Rukia girl.
This is such a great series, hopefully it'll get even better.
You can see that most of the people who vote in those poll are girls.
Oda said it himself.
Male oriented/dominant cast = slashers' wet dream
In the One Piece polls Ace is the most famous non-SH for a reason.
I always thought Ace looked pretty sleazy when he first appeared.
HibarixTsunaxMukuro is the most famous pairing of the fandom......
And I put Tsuna in the middle for a reason.
