POLL: Japanese Males Choose The Best Rivalry Between Male Anime Characters

Which one of the rivalries in anime is most popular among Japanese males?

A few weeks ago, we posted a poll about friendship, and now lets see which male rivalry is adored by males in Japan! Just like the last poll, Goo Ranking polled their registered users for the topic in September and we can see some of the same shows from the last poll are very popular among those people. Still, the results are interesting enough for us over here to agree, disagree and discuss over our favorite anime rivalries.
