The inspiration for this week's poll comes from our member nowyat. Some of you will probably get mad that your specific favorite setting wasn't included, but just choose one of the given options. There's bound to be one choice that you like a lot!

You can submit poll ideas here (and try to keep them manga/anime-related). We also welcome holiday-related poll ideas!

Previous Poll Results:
Question: Do you prefer reading about platonic or romantic relationships?
Platonic - votes: 1186 (9.8%)
Romantic - votes: 6673 (55.3%)
Doesn't matter - votes: 3743 (31%)
No relationships at all - votes: 465 (3.9%)
There were 12067 total votes.
The poll ended: December 22nd 2012

Some of you may call it a narrow-minded poll, but oh well. Not like we're conducting research with all this. And I couldn't make the poll more specific without making the poll itself very wordy

I voted "Future mixed with fantasy" but my real favourite is "Apocalyptic Mixed with Fantasy", which is not quite the same as Apocalyptic...

Contemporary Fantasy is the type of fiction I enjoy the most.

So I would go with the most closest one "Modern mixed with fantasy". Its interesting to see the supernaturals happening in the current time.

Moooo... It's too hard to choose!
I do dislike most school settings though, and prefer nothing to do with high school stories.
The workplace (especially an office) would be a close second, since the setting tends to be static and boring.
That said, I've enjoyed a number of stories set in these categories.

Favorites would probably be - village, apocalyptic/apocalyptic mixed with military and historical.

Same here, I ended up picking "Modern mixed with fantasy", because my absolute favorite stories usually have that background. But I like a lot of stories with the other two fantasy options and Steampunk too. And to top it off most of the stuff I read actually takes place at school, so yeah XD

I'm actually a sucker for historical settings. Historical mixed with fantasy is awesome too.

Post-apocalyptic is always nice... along with historical mixed with fantasy. I love rural village or the countryside too ><

It seems EVERYTHING is related to a high school these days.

I chose historical mixed with fantasy because ofRurouni Kenshin

Big city or apocalyptic.
I can't believe so many people like the school theme. It's fucking stupid and over used. With crap like huge, bulky middle school "delinquents" that are the size of an adult body-builder. Every one of them has the same kind of cast of characters, but slightly different (loli girl, class president or whatever, big tits girl, tsundere person, student counsel, childhood friend, etc.). Then there's the "first day if high school" crap. I suppose the school theme is meant for children after all. They're the only ones who can be entertained by recycled shounen garbage. no

-No longer do I quote great scholars, the famous, etc. Kids feigning wisdom ruined it.
--I wont type a post like a college report. If you don't read it just for that reason, you don't have to post why your hoity-toity ass refused to. I swear, so many people on this site are so full of themselves. A lot seem to think they always have an "intelligent and/or logical" point or show signs of a superiority complex. They never admit they're wrong. Maybe partially, but excuses abound! :\
-Stop mailing me about my comments. I don't read them.

I second that.

That said, some of the choices are really silly. "Near the ocean"? "Big city"? "Workplace"? Really?? "Workplace"confused
