New Poll - Vehicle
This week's poll from our member mizunosaki has a bunch of choices, although some of you might complain that your favorite isn't there. Too bad. The choices listed should cover almost everything. Some of them obviously aren't manga/anime related, but hey, I wanted to have a bit of fun.

You can submit poll ideas here (and try to keep them manga/anime-related)
http://www.mangaupdates.com/showtopic.php?tid=3903

So either a fantasy earth or modern-day Japan. Let's go create our own world! No wonder Minecraft is so popular.

I chose spaceship because I can't imagine anything more awesome than cruising throughout the universe in a spaceship like the Starship Enterprise. Traveling to different planets and seducing green women. Taking on space pirates and saving the galaxy. Man that's the life.

I want to simple float, just simple jump in the air and fly without depending on something.
My favorite way of transportation is absent sad

But if I don't want to waste time with transportation, I would use teleportation.

Teleporting. Because I'm lazy.

Nothing can beat teleporting, fast and cost less.

this. I'm bad at driving, most likely, I'll walk or use public transportation.

I like Teleportation! It's really cool to teleport anywhere you want... My second choice will be Mecha/ Robot. shy

thread

» That3rdGuy on July 13th, 2013, 7:31am

Seeing as you can pick anything, I'd have to say my choice is either a unicycle, a motorized wheelchair (like Hoveround), or a Segway.
Ballin'! cool
Just kidding. I'd definitely use a beer bike and be shitfaced all day, every day, until I drunkenly fall off into traffic. Vrum! Vrum! There'd be a bunch of drunk flies circling my corpse. My part in manga would be fleeting. Every now and then you'd see me in the background teetering off the bike and flipping off traffic. Then I'd drive in front of the MC and fall into the street right in front of a delivery truck. Blood and meaty bits would splash across their terrified face. Then I'd be a spirit that routinely haunts and possesses him during important moments. The MC would normally wake up from the possession hung over in jail or naked in his neighbor's closet. Everyone would ask, "Why is [MC] acting like an American who can't handle his booze?" to which I'd answer by thrusting my hips at them all poker faced. none
I'd also rub my genitals in a circular fashion in front of girls of all ages.
So, I'd hover/float mostly, but walk every now and then. That's my answer. none

I'll teleport because it's also useful in fighting ppl, I want to teleport to the enemy back and finish them instantly.. It seems kinda cool smile wink grin

thread

» QueenVIP on July 13th, 2013, 9:24am

Teleportation would have been the best choice for me, but I've looked into many teleportation abilities in manga, tv shows, movies, scientific theories, etc.

And I've come to the conclusion that teleportation requires that you kill your current self (in which case, the body), and let your spiritual-self or data re-emerge in another location with a new body identical to your previous body. In other words, you're just creating a copy of yourself while destroying yourself. Unless it is a teleportation ability where I'll be entering portals (with my current body intact) bringing me to different locations, then I'd choose it. But since it's vague...

And since Dragons are so freaking huge, and unicorns are just horses with horns, I'll go with "other animal" - which would be a Dragasus (a fusion between a Dragon & Pegasus). Since some dragons capable of speech and like pegasus are bound with some magic it's be perfect. Yes, I made this up, but it's a manga - anything can be happen.

A normal car / sports car since the setting of the manga would allow me to be somewhat creative by envisioning stillborn prototypes / concepts reaching production.

A few of many examples include: BMC 9X (Mini Replacement), Lotus Horizon Turbo, Dodge Copperhead (albeit Coupe), Volkswagen SP3, Opel GT2 (with elements of the Opel Black Widow and Opel Genève) and the Triumph Lynx (albeit with modernized Grinnall TR8 styling).

Me too. It's more fun and more convenient than walking. And you don't have to worry about parking like you would with a vehicle, and you can float around whenever and wherever you want (unlike a flying car, which you have to get into first, and there are some places it can't take you). Teleporting is cool and very convenient, but I think floating around is more enjoyable. Anyway, I guess broomstick is kind of close, plus I can put my cat on it, so I picked that.

Nothing can beat the awesomeness of teleportation. But I prefer traveling by motorcycle. Dragons are myth so.... no

I chose other animal, that animal being a phoenix.
They've always been one of my favorite mystical beasts. <3

I almost chose "walk" because that sounds so... nonchalant and badass. XD
Too bad that doesn't really fit my image.

» voiceintheblue on July 13th, 2013, 8:52pm

Wow, if this poll was up just a month ago, I'd probably say train, or bus. But now that I've experienced first-hand living in the big city and having to depend on public transportation, I've come to hate it! I miss my lovely old red Celica back at home... Can't wait til this study abroad trip is over!

Pssh, I'm takin' a dragon! Talk about a great way to get around! I'd be causing traffic accidents and making little kids so scared they'd wet themselves. I thought about teleporting, but it seems too complicated and risky in my opinion. I feel like it would take a lot of practice to do it right and there'd be a lot of risk that you'd end up somewhere you didn't want to be. So I'm going with a flying dragon that loves to be ridden and I can summon at will.

A unicorn... Because fabulous.

» themasterwarlord on July 15th, 2013, 3:34am

You could've just shortened the various animals into one shorter "animal" group. And I know you're not accepting additional choices, but I still lament that there's no "personal transport device" (i.e. jetpacks, mechanized walkers). Given the choices though, I'd choose the antigravity vehicle.
