A recent survey asking Japanese which anime character they would most like to try living with has yielded some rather surprising results.
1. Doraemon (Doraemon)
2. Korosuke (Kiteretsu Daihyakka)
3. Lum (Urusei Yatsura)
4. Keroro (Keroro Gunsou)
5. Hattori-kun (Ninja Hattori-kun)
6. Kenshin (Rurouni Kenshin)
7. Ojarumaru (Ojarumaru)
8. Ranma (Ranma 1/2)
9. Nyanko-sensei (Natsume’s Book of Friends)
10. Belldandy (Oh My Goddess)
Some might wonder at just who they asked in order to avoid getting answers like “Mio” or “Luffy”; it seems the ranking is restricted to “live-in” characters (although this still leaves open a few odd cases), characters who appear and for whatever reasons insist on living with the protagonist or similar
Other notables included To Love-Ru’s Lala at 12, Rozen Maiden’s Shinku at 14, and Kannagi’s Nagi-sama at 19. Understandably, nobody in their right mind would want to live with the likes of Haruhi.
