    Default Japanese Working Women Polled on One Piece Manga

    http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/inte...ne-piece-manga

    The women's marketing firm Trenders held a poll in October to ask Japanese working women about Eiichiro Oda's pirate manga One Piece. According to the November 8 report, 41% of the 506 respondents said that they have read One Piece, although only 19% of the ones who have read it own the compiled manga volumes personally. On the other hand, 58% of the manga volume owners did have all of the volumes.

    When asked which character they want as a boyfriend, the respondents gave the following answers:

    1 Sanji 45
    2 Monkey D. Luffy 43
    3 Roronoa Zoro/Zolo 36
    4 Shanks (Red-Hair) 9
    5 Portgas D. Ace 8

    The responses were slightly different for which character they want to marry:

    1 Roronoa Zoro/Zolo 36
    2 Sanji 30
    3 Monkey D. Luffy 23
    4 Shanks (Red-Hair) 14
    5 Portgas D. Ace 8
    Trenders then asked the respondents if they want to see a hypothetical live-action version of One Piece. (A live-action version of One Piece has not been announced.) 84% said they would not want to see one. However, Trenders asked those who did want to see a live-action version about their ideal cast. The top vote-getters were Shingo Katori for Monkey D. Luffy, Shun Oguri for Roronoa Zoro/Zolo, Aya Ueto for Nami, Yo Oizumi for Usopp, and Osamu Mukai for Sanji. The rankings are as follows:

    Monkey D. Luffy


    1 Shingo Katori 39
    2 Takeru Sato 16
    3 Teppei Koike 12

    Roronoa Zoro/Zolo



    1 Shun Oguri 18
    2 Shota Matsuda/Ryuhei Matsuda (tie) 7
    3 Osamu Mukai 12

    Nami


    1 Aya Ueto 25
    2 Erika Toda 9
    3 Horikita Maki 5

    Usopp



    1 Yo Oizumi 74
    2 Kenta Kiritani/Eiji Wentz (tie) 5
    3 Shingo Katori 4

    Sanji



    1 Osamu Mukai 10
    2 Shun Oguri 9
    3 Shota Matsuda 8

    Trenders conducted the poll online among 506 working women aged 20 to 39 from October 27 to October 28.

    Japanese women know who to choose.

    So Sanji is bf material but Zoro would make a better husband? Sounds about right.

    And 22.86 of the women polled own all 60 volumes. Pretty hardcore. Although I have to wonder what part of that 23rd woman constitutes the 14% of herself that doesn't own all the volumes.

    Interesting! Shun Oguri doesn't seem like a Sanji to me, though. Also, I wonder whether there'd be more OP readers if they polled a slightly younger age group.

    Yep. I'm sure if they asked Japanese men about it they'd say Nami would be a better girlfriend but Robin would make a better wife. People are fickle like that.

    Why are you comparing it to cultural engravings and burritos.

    Nami and Ussop are perfect. Zoro's would fit better with Luffy.

    The polls for women made me laugh though nice find Sea!

    I like Greg's choice for Luffy better. Can't remember the kid's name though.

    I'm sad that the dancing lizard gif didn't work, but glad that I found a striking picture of Luffy here instead.

    Amen. No live action film ever.

    I think the thing that amuses me more about the Alpha stats is that the exact same number of women seem to want to date Zoro as want to marry him. So for female Zoro fans, it's apparently "all or nothing". Only the Ace fans -- holding steady at 8 seem to be as stubbornly devoted.


    Shanks is the one who seems to benefit most from the "husband" option. He gained a lot of Sanji deserters, it seems.

    I wonder why they don't want to date Shanks if they want to marry him? He seems perfectly capable of partying and having fun.


    Thanks Sea, that poll was pretty amusing.



    EDIT:
    Hey, I just discovered that the numbers don't add up evenly between the two polls.
    It seems that 30 women don't want to marry ANY of them.


    45+43=36=9=8= 141 (dating poll)
    36+30+ 23+ 14+ 8 = 111 (marriage poll)

    Maybe they said they wanted to marry someone else?

    I'm kinda surprised it was limited to 5 chars lol

    Sorry, am I totally blind or do the chosen live-action actors NOT look like their comic counterparts AT ALL?

    Well there is the possibility that they were chosen based on their public persona or characters they portray and are associated with...

    This is the most impressive and interesting part of this poll.

    OP is a cultural phenomenon without a doubt.

    If Moriah is added to the option.
    All ladies will definitely choose him as BF and husband material.
