I voted for Steampunk because I liked that era of feel in "Warehouse 13". A would say that "Bioshock" is also a contributer, but that series is considered Dieselpunk. I could have also chosen Military because of my love for "Stargate". Other than that, nothing really jumped out at me.

I was about to say that I thought Apocalyptic would have been a lot more popular until I saw so many comments putting it in second place. To be specific, I like post apocalyptic settings best. The phase where people are rebuilding or have rebuilt. It is always nice to see how that world views the world we live in, what survives the destruction and the passage of time.

Historical Fiction for me. What I mean by historical fiction is things like Yume no Shizuku, Ougon no Torikago and Otoyomegatari.

I feel like historical fiction is a little push for more originality and if a mangaka seriously does the research then it'll be great (especially if it's based on a history of another country). Nothing like those lame "into the past and become the heroine" stuff except for Red River. It was a theme too overused by watase yuu and i feel like she beat it like a dead horse until it wasn't original anymore....though it would just be that I don't particularly like watase yuu after having discovered a whole gallery of much more amazing mangas on display in the online manga world.

School is really cliche if it's a shoujo manga and I'm guessing most of the votes are from shoujo readers.

There's too many choices I wanto to pick.

I like an amalgam of different settings.

Of all the lovely options out there, "school" is the one most picked. You people are so dull... laugh

It's interesting that no one that posted in this thread was pro school, i don't know how such a boring setting got first place...

It is kind of typical and I guess we'd all think "been there, done that." I actually really like the setting though. My absolute favorite is fantasy/supernatural ones but I've been in school for a long time and that is the setting I am most familiar with.

Its not anymore boring than any other setting can be. What really matters is how its used just like any troupe setting or archetype character. Even the one's like apocalyptic and historical are overused especially in western comics and everything has been done at this point which is why they become troupes.

Anyway I revived this topic because I want another one of these. I didn't get to participate in this one.
