25 / F / skipping along th...

this is regarding most shojo manga that includes themes of 'hottest guy in school' and 'the school prince'
i don't know about ya'll but i just can't stand those kind of characters.
i'm pretty experienced in reading loads of shojo manga, some that has plot and good character formation, some that doesn't.

well, we all know how the school 'prince' should be
polite to everybody
good at everything - sports, academics... EVERYTHING
the only good guy
probably the most handsomest of all

there are also the 'wolf-in-sheep's-clothing princes'
those that act all innocent and kind
when actually he's a devil without showing mercy
impeccable (repeat)

doesn't anyone here prefer the good delinquents? the guys that girls don't really go after?
basically, i prefer zero over kaname(vampre knight), ikuto over tadase (shugo chara), lelouch over suzaku(code geass), ect...

is it me or is it that mostly the good-looking 'prince' or so what the shojo manga lead character calls him...
always or mostly have family problems or something related to the guy having problems in the past?

well, i'm the type that prefers the badass of the story. the one that skips schools and ain't the most polite person.
the one that everyone is scared of and avoids. the guy pretty much everyone hates except for that one girl.

certain delinquents are truly the antagonist and bad guy but it's guaranteed that the bad guy would be good or something like that.
i'd like it if for once if the guy is really down-to-earth and all.

so...the main question is... who prefers the 'prince' and who prefers the delinquent/badass yet good guy?
please be open-minded and speak your mind.

Lol you got me... I can't even choose.
I don't know about others, but I love that kind of shoujo cliches... not ALL shoujo cliches, but these two are ones that I can't get tired of, haha

The "Princes" of shoujo are nice to have when you want to just forget about how real guys are and dive into a fantasy world.
Let's face it, there isn't a guy in real life that is actually like a Prince...

The bad boy, who is actually very nice type is nice to have too... because for one, he is "cool" lol. Two, he is probably strong, dependable, responsible, and someone you can trust... because somehow bad boys in mangas are kind of opposite of bad boys in real life

Conclusion: Can't decide.

I would choose someone between those two. Their like a prince because of their outward appearence and some persnality (gentle, sweet,etc.), but at the same time very hard core, rebellious, keeps to himself, etc.

The bad guys get the girl most of the time. =P That's cause they're so popular to the readers.

Princes are boring because they're so perfect. Those type of princes are so unrealistic.

I've always been a fan of the Mr. Darcy type aka the misunderstood badass.
