So after the character popularity poll, I did around two more polls on the Discord server. Around 40+ people replied. Seeing that they are more than 1000 members on the server, seeing only 40+ people replying to the polls gives me an idea of how many people actually bother about these random things haha.
Anyway, below are the questions and the results.
What are your Top 5 favourite scenes in Hataraku Maou-sama?
All scenes in the light novel anime and manga count, up until the plot in Volume 16 of the light novel. Top 10 favourite scenes are as follows:
|1||Vol 9||Vol 9: Maou and Suzuno talking around the campfire (including the almost love confession and Maou’s confession about his actions)||58|
|1||Vol 12||Vol 12: Emi hugging Maou||58|
|2||Vol 8||Vol 8: Lucifer stopping the fireball to save Suzuno and Chiho||31|
|3||Vol 0-II||Vol 0-II: Lucifer and Satan’s conversation when they ran away from the silver arm clan (including the head pat)||30|
|4||Vol 3||Vol 3: After Alas=Ramus calls Maou and Emi Papa and Mama (including Ashiya fainting)||27|
|5||Vol 0||Vol 0: Satan and Lucifer’s first meeting||23|
|6||Vol 13||Vol 13: Rika’s confession and Ashiya’s response||21|
|7||Vol 1||Vol 1: Maou giving Emi his umbrella||18|
|8||Vol 16||Vol 16: Emi secretly leaving chocolate for Maou||15|
|9||Vol 5.5||Vol 5.5: Emi educating Maou on farming while harvesting eggplants||14|
|10||Vol 4||Vol 4: Maou grabbing Emi by the shoulder and bragging that he has the holy sword||12|
|10||Vol 7||Vol 7: Maou, Emi and Alas=Ramus’s futon buying trip||12|
For the second poll, the question was Which characters in Hataraku Maou-sama! do you want to be your older brother/older sister/younger brother/younger sister? The results are as follows with reasons.
|1||Ashiya||22||Able to do housework, reliable and responsible, people are aware he can be naggy|
|2||Maou||11||Responsible, reliable, would seem like a fun older brother|
|1||Lucifer||24||Cute, want to spoil him, fun to tease, able to play games together|
|2||Maou||9||Able to take care of himself, nice person, able to whack him for stringing girls along|
|1||Suzuno||13||Can cook, motherly personality, would be able to maintain order in the house|
|2||Kisaki||11||Dependable, able to get good advice from her|
|1||Alas=Ramus||11||Really cute, want to see her grow up|
|2||Acies=Ala||10||Would be a fun younger sister, can cause trouble together|
I don’t see how Lucifer can win also overwhelmingly over Maou in the younger brother department XD Is it because most of the people who bother to vote are Lucifer fans?
