From NightSwan, fantasy or reality?

You can discuss this poll on our forums here:

You can submit poll ideas here (and try to keep them manga/anime-related):

Previous Poll Results:
Question: If you had to be addressed by an honorific, you would prefer
San - votes: 4019 (23%)
Chan - votes: 3622 (20.8%)
Kun - votes: 2073 (11.9%)
Sama - votes: 3919 (22.5%)
Sempai - votes: 2089 (12%)
Kohai - votes: 187 (1.1%)
Sensei - votes: 1542 (8.8%)
There were 17451 total votes.
The poll ended: October 29th 2011

I'm not sure how to analyze this, but I guess "san" commands a little bit of respect, right? Or perhaps if you went by no honorific, it'd mean people were really familiar with you...

Really, why you even asking? most of the people in "reality" want to live in a Fantasy World....
Be it some bizzare environment or beautiful environment.

I choose fantasy world. Because I am so damn tired of this realistic world.

Honestly I wouldn't mind realism or fantasy so long as they are in the harem genre and I'm the protagonist. If you're biggest problem in life is that you have too many girlfriends then that is the world I want to live in.

Realistic with elements of fantasy. i.e. magical powers. Although I suppose that would still be classified as fantasy... did I just waste my vote?? O_o

Isn't escaping reality one of the biggest charms of literature/art?

I would argue that practically no manga has a realistic world. Take any manga with a (bored/unpopular) boy who meets a (weird/pretty) girl that will change his everyday life, his view on the world, etc. What are the odds of such a girl wanting to be with a boy like that? That's unrealistic in a way that doesn't involve pseudo-japanese countries with monsters or kingdoms with dragons

Realistic world, bad guys here are bad enough without giving them supernatural powers and monsters.

Fantasy. Seriously, I would be so happy to live in the Pokemon world or something. Real world is boring.
