If laughing is included in that then yes i do often, but other then that no, i don't do any weird sound while reading manga.

I curse a lot when a character behaves in a way that annoy me.

BUT, to be clear I react like that to every form of art, if good enough to cause a reaction. I can be a quite kind of person most of time, but i like to let my emotions lose while reading or even watching a picture or painting.

No, never. I'm not a very expressive person in general (I don't like making random emotion noises either), and especially not when I'm concentrating on reading a story.

Although, I will laugh out loud if something is funny enough (doesn't happen too often though), but it seems like the poll doesn't include laughing.

Like others, I laugh mostly but rarely squeal. Usually there are more opportunities to gasp and cure, especially curse.

I squeal so much and I'm a guy. Destroying the gender stereotype here, and proud of it. Theres no way i can watch oreimo or read seishun forget and not squeal. If the scene is adorable enough then i honestly could care less what sounds i make.

All the time!! It's something I can't help! Some times I'm grinning like an idiot in front of my laptop, other times I'm shouting and calling characters idiots or assholes, many times I'm bawling my eyes out and almost always I'm laughing out loud. Most of the time my friends have to ask whats going on!! and my family is so use to it, they don't even ask about it anymore lol.

But if it makes you happy to win on the internet, have at it.

Screams from the haters, got a nice ring to it. I guess every superhero need her theme music...

I don't think I've ever gasped, but yeah, I guess I'm guilty of the occasional physical reaction when I read.

I'd... like to say more, but I'd risk sounding like a weirdo, so I'll refrain...

I do burst out in short laughter every now and then but that's all.

Guilty as charged. wink I react to pretty much everything in life (usually audibly dead), so of course, manga, books, movies, TV, etc. are no exceptions. Usually when I read, it's restricted to laughing and groaning in annoyance/shouting at characters when they do stupid things. I don't usually squeal, though, unless the series is one I'm deeply invested in and there's a particularly heartwarming/heart-wrenching scene. Pandora Hearts really gets me going almost every chapter. cry

And yes, I do laugh and cry, unashamedly, when a good piece of writing compels me to. Sure, the story and characters may not be real, but the emotions they evoke in me certainly are. eyes

When manga really gets exciting I just can't bottle my emotions
