Yeah, it's a generic poll...All genres were taken from our Genre page, so if you don't know what a particular genre is, check that out. I realize that "doujinshi" doesn't really count as a genre, but whatever...
Some of you will be at odds with which genre to choose since I put up EVERY genre we have, so be decisive and click the button!

You're welcome to discuss your genres here:
http://www.mangaupdates.com/showtopic.php?tid=8104

And in case you were wondering, this is actually the first time we repeated a poll. (The previous genre poll was...2005...)

As for all of you that voted in the beta recommendation system poll, thank you for your vote! We hope to develop that system better in the near future.

Edit: That sure was interesting, hahaha. Just to tell you guys, before I changed the poll, romance was beating yaoi (by about 20 votes)! Anyways, if you didn't know, I changed some of the options of the poll, and everyone gets to vote again~

I still think that several of the options don't count as "genres" really, but oh well.

This is a bit of a WIDE WIDE, choice list. You should've added a mixed option.

Why are Shoujo/Shounen/Josei/Seinen listed as genres? Because..... They're not. I know you said you just took it from the genres page, but still. D:

it would be better if we can choose more than one genre.
even series itself doesn't just limit in one category.

It was quite obvious which genre holds the highest chance of winning-- since there are too many wide choices for one to make-- that, and the yaoi fangirls cannot be beaten when united!

I voted for the obvious winner, of course ~_~

Still what? As mentioned, it was taken out of the genre list, so shoujo/shounen and whatever are listed there automatically. Those "they're not" genres, were added into the genre list to allow users to take it to theur advantage-- so dont mind the small details, it make you sound short >_>

I totally voted for Romance, but im suprised to see Yaoi...

It does look like a big list but pairing types or anything else would have probly forced people to vote for stuff they didn't really want to vote for.

I think this poll is going to have some warped results. Most mangas are a mixture of several genres. Personally, I like Romance Comedy Shoujo best. Romance without Comedy tends to be drawn out, overly angsty, soap opera-esque, and boring. Ditto for Yaoi without Comedy. Comedy without Shoujo Romance tends to be ridonkulous, aimed at males, and not funny to me.
