This week's poll about sports was suggested by our member nowyat. The choices are definitely non-exhaustive and are arranged in no particular order. I did not include a choice "Other" on purpose (as with the "None" option), so please choose your favorite out of the ones available. Although you can comment below if you have another favorite that isn't on the list! (And yes, I put in that e-sports one at the end just for the heck of it)

Edit: Whoops, I put "Cycling" twice. Oh well

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

Question: How many languages do you proficiently know?
Choices:
Just English (most likely you're American) - votes: 2913 (18.3%)
English and... (meaning you're the rest of the world) - votes: 7360 (46.2%)
Three (above average) - votes: 4196 (26.3%)
Four (exceptionally learned) - votes: 979 (6.1%)
Five or more (approaching godly status) - votes: 499 (3.1%)
There were 15947 total votes.
The poll ended: May 5th 2012

It is perfectly fine to only know 1 language well (including me), but it seems the majority knows plenty of languages! And I realize "proficiently" is very subjective. We're not using the results of these polls for anything, so that's alright. It's a poll for fun, not a full-blown survey.

Archery, i love it. But only the occidental one... i don't want to offend anybody but i think oriental archery is really boring (it's also proved to be less useful in a real battlefield)

That's really bad for health :S, i can't believe anybody would actually hate all sports.


I also love Rugby (played it for years), but i think an occidental archery manga would be interesting.

And yes, I voted for e-sports just for the hell of it.

Well, the best sports manga is this series, so...

Actually, I tend to prefer sports manga about sports I don't enjoy watching - I've enjoyed plenty of Adachi's baseball series, despite never watching the game if I can help it. Conversely, I'm a big MMA fan, and don't really care for All Rounder Meguru or Holyland.

I can swim, play badminton and a certain extent of golf and baseball. But, for some reason, manga or anime don't really portray it the way I like it (at least what I've read). So I generally avoid the sports I can do/play pretty well. Then I'm not *particularly* a sports manga/anime fan.

I like a few manga with archery in them. I've read several with basketball and soccer/american football.

Oh, I also like a few sports manga with supernatural hints as well [generally martial arts, but there are others as well...]

In conclusion, 'Track and Field' gets my vote because it's somewhat common and I really like people who can run fast!

I picked American Football...because I've yet to read any manga dealing with US-football.

But I feel stupid. I should have picked Cheerleading. With Cheerleading, there would sure be drama, girls trying to be popular through sex appeal, pursuing modeling, slice of life, ecchi situations and much more. Guys trying to be cheerleaders and looked upon as real fags when all they are trying to do is get closer to cute cheerleading-girls.

Video Games would be sweet too, but I guess something supernatural or fantasy mixed with some scienticfic action had to be combined with that concept.

Baseball is so ridiculously boring, and a fail. Even the creator of Naruto couldn't make a successful baseball oneshot piece. smile wink grin

My, I think this is the most options a poll here has ever had!
Probably Track and Field. Some of my fav smuts feature it, like Sweet Little Devil (somewhat) and Interval (which is insane but still pretty hot).

As for cheerleading - that could be fun.
But I don't remember reading a manga about it, with the exception of hentai.

There are just so many options dead

Personally, I would love to see someone pull off something like golf. We have successful mangas about go, shougi, karuta, baseball, etc...but I can't think of any on golf. Always fun to read a manga about a sport/game that makes a boring looking sport into something interesting~
