Entire, but mostly to do with Code Geass being a niche series. As I said, yes, overall its slightly less popular than FMA:B and Death Note, but still massive. Lelouch is a massively well known anime character which wouldn't be possible if it was a niche series. As for the popularity contest part, it's 50-50. Yes, certain anime do see more wins, but it's to do ultimately with people liking those series a lot over others. Why I feel this is flawed (face-offs being a popularity contest) is that Pokémon characters are definitely more well known here than even FMA:B and Code Geass characters (Well duh since its a Pokémon forum), but they are the first to be eliminated, only because people realise they aren't in the same league.Okey doke. Question. So are you saying my entire hypothesis is wrong or just the part where Code Geass is, based on belief, a niche series?
