The concept of “June brides” has become as popular in Japan lately as it is in the West. So to celebrate the beginning of June, news site Anime! Anime! hosted a poll asking fans which anime guy would make the best husband.
1,913 people responded, with more than 60% being women. Approximately half of the voters were teenagers. A second poll asking visitors to vote for the best anime wife was also conducted, with results to come later.
