This week's poll is from xxxTokineko. We don't usually do polls about which you dislike the most, but there's a first time for everything!

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: Which color Power Ranger (Super Sentai) are you?
Choices:
Blue - votes: 1375 (15.8%)
Red - votes: 1135 (13.1%)
Yellow - votes: 638 (7.3%)
Pink - votes: 1009 (11.6%)
Green - votes: 1053 (12.1%)
Black - votes: 2260 (26%)
White - votes: 1219 (14%)
There were 8689 total votes.
The poll ended: March 2nd 2013

Wow, black won pretty handily. But Blue is my favorite color...

hard to say because most of these demographics have invoked my hatred at one point or another, I'd have to say either Josei or Shoujo.

I guess I'll have to go with hentai, I'm not trying to light the fire of a discussion here (which this topic has great potential of having several of them), but generally it's rather mindless and time-wasting reading those. Even the ones with the highest rates bore me.

I can go for some pretty twisted stuff, but I've tried hentai, and that's WAAAAY too crazy for me. That's why it's called hentai. dead bigrazz

Another poll with a foregone conclusion; we're obviously running out of good poll topics. Everyone knows yaoi will win this one (or lose it, depending on your point of view).

I voted for hentai, but, well...

Couldn't vote for both shoujo ai and shounen ai, so I went for the latter due to it being
a bit too idealistic. Though yaoi is way more ridiculous than that... Should have
probably voted for that. Shounen ai can be an underlying element that is just a side part
of a story, but yaoi kind of overwrites everything else.

as a guy, i say Shounen ai because... i didn't pick Yaoi because for the most part that is mainly for girls and because of that i have never even peaked at one. but at the start of my manga days i somehow found myself reading Shounen ai and i was like wait wtf is happening. And i did not like where it was heading so i looked at genre and research and then omfg i found out lol.

Wow, every next poll is worse than the last, now this is something. First off, this will be dominated by homophobic guys voting on Shounen Ai or Yaoi, second off, half of the choices aren't demographics but genres, and third off, this is a question that makes no sense. The least you would need would be multiple choice because it's hard to say which is the worst from among the derp trio of Josei, Shoujo and Shounen.

THIS. We've had this kind of debate a couple of times already.

Naturally, there are some demographic/genres I read more than others, so it is hard to compare given my very limited experience with hentai or yuri in comparison to shounen or josei. Also, I like manga based on the story and characters, not the demographic, so I tend to read from all demographics, though mainly from the non-sexual ones.

In the end, I chose hentai, because the few I have attempted to read have a plot line and characters as flimsy and 2-dimensional as actual porn, except it is a drawing. Given that real people going at it does nothing for me, it is hardly surprising that I have yet to even finish any hentai that has been recommended to me.

My least favourite non-sexual manga is harder, I dislike a lot of shounen, because it is full of over-done cliches and unnecessary ecchi. I dislike many shoujo manga as well, also because of cliches and the ridiculous girls found in shoujo, whose entire world revolves around a guy, who is usually a d**k. That just annoys me. I prefer shounen to shoujo, because at least fighting is somewhat interesting, unlike make-up. Having said that, there are too many good and bad points in both to really say for certain which annoys me more. Can I just say that I hate bad stories instead?
