This new poll was suggested by our member Kuro Kagami. Names are important. Enough said. I'm doubting that most people would go that far...

You can discuss this poll on our forums here:
http://www.mangaupdates.com/showtopic.php?tid=24138

You can submit poll ideas here (and try to keep them manga/anime-related):
http://www.mangaupdates.com/showtopic.php?tid=3903

Previous Poll Results:
Question: How do you rate comics from your country?
Choices:
I'm from Japan, enough said - votes: 193 (1.3%)
They're better than manga! - votes: 231 (1.5%)
They are as good as manga - votes: 1771 (11.8%)
Interesting, but not as good as manga - votes: 4710 (31.4%)
Really bad, I never read them - votes: 2334 (15.6%)
I don't know, I've never read them - votes: 3611 (24.1%)
My country doesn't have local comics - votes: 2156 (14.4%)
There were 15006 total votes.
The poll ended: February 5th 2011

In general, it seems that people like their manga more than anything else

maybe if my partner agrees. However I think I would prefer a Chinese name for my child because it would fit better with my Chinese surname she/he will get

"I'm doubting that most people would go that far..." Really? People name their kids after Twilight characters, and honestly I think it's better for kids to be named after anime/manga characters than Twilight ones.

As tempting as it is to name my son Frieza and have F by Maxiumum the Hormone play on full blast during labour, I would have to decline this one.

most twilight names like Jacob & Edward are normal and names like naruto and most anime names are not in most of america. on the other hand i might name my daughter Tiffany and call her Tifa but thats a videogame name and that doesn't count

The majority agrees: manga is awesome.
