New Poll - City Size
It's not related to manga, but I wanted to do this poll suggested by our member icassop. How big of a city is the place that you live? If you're not sure, look it up! Google is your best friend! For me, I live in the giant city of Los Angeles. You know it's huge because of the amount of traffic.

You can submit poll ideas here (and try to keep them manga/anime-related)

Previous Poll Results:
Question: Do you own physical, non-digital copies of manga?
I would consider myself a collector - votes: 1068 (9.4%)
Maybe not hardcore, but I have a lot - votes: 2710 (23.9%)
Just a few here and there - votes: 3773 (33.3%)
Maybe like one volume... - votes: 976 (8.6%)
None at all. Purely digital for me - votes: 2793 (24.7%)
There were 11320 total votes.
The poll ended: June 14th 2014

I'm glad a good number of you own at least some physical volumes (or magazines)~

A Town (50k - 100k) is in some countries a capital city...

And something bigger than 25k people is already called a city in my country.


» claudiofd on June 14th, 2014, 2:17am

Had to check wikipedia for this. Population: 3 037.

God damn it... I wish I had been born in a city, so much more practical. Well, at least I live relatively close to Lisbon. I can get there in around 50 minutes, a trip I have to make every weekday twice to go to college and come back.


» kitty1826x on June 14th, 2014, 2:37am

I guess Town (50k - 100k) since the place I live at has 44k.
The place I used to live at had a population of 4 million. I like living in a smaller populated area.


» zeroINUGAMI on June 14th, 2014, 2:41am

I live in a rural town of 10k-50k (not counting the farms on the outskirts of town) with around 15000 people


» Aremon on June 14th, 2014, 3:32am

Rural I guess... Since there is just 7 people. Me, my family and and the neighbor family... then 3km (1.8 miles) to the next "neighbor".


» forgottenone666 on June 14th, 2014, 4:31am

I chose Metropolis. I live in a metropolitan area with about 6-7 million people.


» Banarok on June 14th, 2014, 4:51am

東京, so metropolis it is


» gohan11 on June 14th, 2014, 5:40am

8.337 million here in NY


» CuthienSilmeriel on June 14th, 2014, 5:41am

I live in Kyoto, which has over 1million residents, so big city it is, but my hometown is a small city of 300,000. I also spent 3 years living in a medium sized city, and 3 years living in a town of 40,000. I wonder if I can manage to live in a metropolis and in a rural area as well in my lifetime.


» barbapapa on June 14th, 2014, 6:02am

whoops I put in 6k when it should've been 60k


» Millennia_Curse on June 14th, 2014, 7:18am

Rural (just over 2,000), and I live out of town in the sticks. Wouldn't have it any other way either. biggrin

I can't even imagine living in a city with a million people. It just boggles my mind.


» Sogno on June 14th, 2014, 8:01am

town , population of around 27k

a lot bigger than where i grew up (rural, less than 1k), but it's nice not to have to drive 30 miles to get to school/work/shopping.


» xxmichellexx27f on June 14th, 2014, 8:13am

I grow up and live in a city with over 9 million people, so crowded huh. Sometimes, living in such metropolitan area makes me narrow mindedly think everyone in the world live like this. bigrazz


» Knightzomegaz on June 14th, 2014, 10:56am

City, 2.6M


» Here_And_Now on June 14th, 2014, 10:58am

Wait, wait, wait! Less than 5 thousand is rural? 5 thousand? Wow. The closest town to where I live is a few hundred at most. I live a 5 minute drive outside of that town. Maybe that makes me super rural?


» m64 on June 14th, 2014, 11:12am

i live in a city with 60k~ ppl ><

but i guess in New England we have a different set of guidelines for that stuff. we determine each by their form of government where cities have mayors and a city council and towns have town meetings and a board of selectmen.


» Damnedman on June 14th, 2014, 11:16am

I'm not sure... Usually people refer to Toronto as the metropolitan area, which has a population of over 6m, but the city of Toronto only has 2.6m. Also, I'm surprised the really rural people even have Internet bigrazz


» Nekore on June 15th, 2014, 1:26pm

Probably depends on closeness to a bigger city, country conectivity and goverment politics. I went once to a really rural area and the state pun internet conectivity in the school.


» OrchardPetalLullaby on June 14th, 2014, 11:38am

Town (5k - 10k). I had to look it up since I had absolutely no idea. The two places I lived in before had larger populations but I gotta admit I love where I live, for the most part.


» Recaro on June 14th, 2014, 12:35pm

I just put City(500k-1m). Even though I currently live in North Las Vegas, I've also lived in Las Vegas just a couple months ago. I pretty much treat the two if them the same at this point.


» Marian5390 on June 14th, 2014, 3:16pm

I live in the lovely, sprawling metropolis known as Montreal! 8D
Montreal's population alone exceeds that of Saskatchewan by quite some bit....[/spammy-message-is-spammy]


» Nekore on June 14th, 2014, 3:58pm

Depend of the point of view, the city itself is +300K but the conurbation is 1m


» KioJonny on June 14th, 2014, 5:49pm

At 53k, my "town" is the 4th largest city in my state. (granted I'm living in a fairly rural US state, but the state capitol isn't even in the "City" category) The largest city in the state is at 750k and billed as a Metropolitan Area by the US Census Bureau.


» Nekore on June 15th, 2014, 1:29pm

Well... consider that you live in a country with stateS lol 4th in one of them can see like really nothing for others in the same country but probably "nothing" of +300M can still be a lot


» KaoriNite on June 14th, 2014, 7:00pm

My hometown is around 60k and is 45min outside of a small city (100k-500k). I'm currently living in a larger city (1m-5m).

I've also lived in a city that has 10 million people, which is more than some entire countries.


» ZinnKid on June 14th, 2014, 9:47pm

According to Google: 6,336. Classified as a city though. In Ohio: over 5k is a city, any less then it's a "village" (if it's a municipality).


» Vaines on June 15th, 2014, 4:18am

Over one million inhabitants. Well it's a capital after all smile


» popske on June 15th, 2014, 10:23am



» mattai on June 15th, 2014, 10:36am

88k, though classified as a city. Also, it's right outside Toronto, so definitely a more urban area than rural.


» nunya_bishieness on June 15th, 2014, 10:47am

City 2.106m.
I've never lived in city with less than 1 million inhabitants. (Needless to say I despise rush hour commute dead)


» Aijin-of-Iwa on June 15th, 2014, 1:42pm

I live in the middle of the forest. Seriously. Fifteen minutes away from the first town.


» StarAngel125 on June 15th, 2014, 4:18pm

I live in a metropolis (New York City), which has over 8 million people, which is a lot of people living here.


» pyonk on June 15th, 2014, 10:02pm

Yogyakarta, a 3,133.15 km2 province area with 3,5 million population


» Hanae on June 16th, 2014, 11:53am

I guess city size standards are relative, the biggest city in my country is under 2 million and it's considered a metropolis


» Wyllia on June 16th, 2014, 3:09pm

Well, here it's ~2k and we consider each other neighbours if we live within 5km of each other.. so it's fairly rural cool I love it here, nice and quiet and plenty of space to have fun without anyone bothering you.


» aznchis3l on June 16th, 2014, 8:33pm

266k here in Plano. Never realized it was that populated here, though it's still nothing compared to Dallas with it's 1.24 million which is only a 30 minute drive.


» aazura on June 17th, 2014, 10:08pm



» Xical on June 19th, 2014, 5:08pm

Where is my Megalopolis option for 10M and more?


» hkanz on June 20th, 2014, 4:21pm

I was born in Saskatoon (pop. ~250,000), which is the largest city in the province of Saskatchewan, Canada. Now I move around a lot; I prefer smaller towns in prettier places. Saskatoon's size is good for a city though - you get all the services of a larger city (though in terms of cultural events, etc. it's somewhat lacking) but without smog or insane traffic and such. smile
