Quote from sarah-eats-cupcakes
i dont think i'll ever quit
im the kind of person who would never grow out of something they enjoy
besides, with demographics like seinen and josie i dont see a reason why i would want to stop reading manga in the future


Because growing out of something definitely doesn't involve no longer finding it enjoyable.

Isn't this basically a repeat poll? I remember something very similar some time ago.

I might stop eventually, if I get bored. It happens to everyone.

Sometimes i stop reading mangas and wait for something new being published, or wait untill the chapters of my favorites mangas pile up on Mangatraders so then i have more stuff to read at one time ^^

Well everyone kept saying that's a repeat, so I searched a bit, actually there was a similar poll 3 years ago:

Question: Do you see yourself still reading manga in 10 years?
Choices:
Yes! Love of my life! - votes: 5197 (47.8%)
Maybe (I'm not sure)... Depends on a lot of things - votes: 5216 (48%)
No, I'll be too busy or interested in other things - votes: 449 (4.1%)
There were 10862 total votes.
The poll ended: January 17th 2009

I'd like to keep reading manga, even later on. And looking at the declining quality of almost everything you can watch and read nowadays, I think it's for the best to stick with it. Don't see much other things that are enjoyable but still include some morals and such and are NOT plain stupid, especially for kids...

Hmm...idk which choice to pick.
I absolutely don't want to drop reading manga but reading it has messed up my priorities (school, which I'm super gung-ho about).
So I guess it's a yes, though I might pick it back up again in my later years ^^. To think I've been with it so long...

Never, I'm a bookworm. A manga is just another form of book. Besides, I'm already an adult, If I was going to out-grow manga, I would have already. I just got pickier.

I've noticed that the manga I read and actually enjoy are coming fewer and farther between, but no. I'll probably keep reading and seeking that one story that totally blows me away. My tastes in genre may very well shift—I may stop reading shoujo or shounen manga—but I don't think I'll ever stop reading manga completely.

But who knows.

Where's the "I honestly have no idea" option? I like to think I'll keep reading it though, especially considering the amount of money I spend on it laugh

Probably not entirely...I don't read as much of it now as when I started, and I can see myself dropping it for a year or so at some point. But sooner or later, I'd get bored...
