I don't think it was proved as there was simply no character like that in DGM, maybe he would beat Allen in popularity. You should know that people who has panties over their pants are very confident and macho and girls love that.
I'm really suprised there are none of those characters there, considering the hard training.
Popularity among girls in DGM? It's pretty clear that they like either shotaAllen, the occasional soft, sensitive type, or SEX (Cross). Maybe if Cross had the panties...
We've only seen a few DGM guys shirtless, and it's clear that their body types just won't let it appear that way. Maybe someone a little bigger, though... or if Komrin ever manages to make someone macho...
I guess Japanese fangirls is just that kind of screwed up species, especially considering that Cross is neither Johnny Depp Sex or Leonardo Di Caprio or Diesel or Vandamn or Travolta or Bloom. Seriously, he is hot ? He looks kinda retarded to me..
Kolox, you're a man; you can't see how attractive he is. Note that Cross is actually fairly manly - no, he doesn't have muscles bulging everywhere, but the guy's got a fairly sturdy body and, of all things, facial hair. (Actually, when you mention Johnny Depp...) Big change from the girly-looking men they seem to idolize in fiction, if not necessarily life. (Example = Kanda. It's the haircut.)
