This week's poll is from our member 007demosthenes. When you dislike a manga for its art, what are you most nitpicky about? And for once, there's an "Other" option. Post a comment if your choice isn't in that list!

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

Previous Poll Results:
Question: Favorite type of character?
The cool & handsome / beautiful one - votes: 788 (6.8%)
The quiet, stoic, and good-looking one - votes: 2460 (21.2%)
The noisy, stubborn, & hot-headed one - votes: 689 (5.9%)
The horrible, mean, & bad attitude one - votes: 388 (3.3%)
The helpful, kind, & cool one - votes: 992 (8.6%)
The robot / artificial intelligence - votes: 240 (2.1%)
The dense / air-headed genius type - votes: 935 (8.1%)
The 'always happy' character - votes: 372 (3.2%)
The handsome / beautiful sadist - votes: 1267 (10.9%)
The ugly character - votes: 101 (0.9%)
The sensitive but melancholic one - votes: 413 (3.6%)
The submissive, bumbling, and puppy-dog one - votes: 213 (1.8%)
The secretive enigma - votes: 962 (8.3%)
The clumsy fool - votes: 234 (2%)
The scheming plotter - votes: 1542 (13.3%)
There were 11596 total votes.
The poll ended: September 14th 2013

Did the quiet, the stoic, or the good-looking part win? Probably the last one... Reminds me of the character type of "tall, dark, and handsome" in literature.

Where is the option: Unfinished art?

What would be the best to put the art of Hunter X Hunter under?
Good story but horrible art. sad

What bugs me most is when they add chibi characters for no reason. -_-
Looking at you Goong!

Or the manga that makes all the girls look about 12. That annoys the hell out of me.

Imagination is the greatest weapon of all.

Certain styles bug me. It's usually why I avoid shoujo and josei. Having said that I have found a few that I don't mind, but the majority of them I don't like.

"All characters look the same" & "Certain art styles" top my list but I went with "all characters look the same".

Kind of hard to follow the plot if you can't differentiate between the characters.

All characters look the same (or generic) make it hard to distinguish and people can easily misinterpret the story.

Huh. I would have listed a different set of options:
- Exaggerated shoujo styles (huge eyes, skinny limbs)
- Exaggerated shounen styles (muscles everywhere)
- Poorly-drawn anatomy not due to style
- Generic-looking characters
- bland facial expressions
- Poorly-drawn or non-existing background
- Poorly-drawn action scenes
- Excessive fanservice (huge breasts, revealing outfits, etc.)
- Unrefined/unfinished-looking artstyle (squiggly lines, Hunter x Hunter etc.)

And to incorporate the above:
- Random chibis everywhere
- All the characters look too young

It'd be very hard to choose from just one, though. lol.

- Unrealistic expression
- Unrealistic boobs size (in action/adventure shonen manga).

With "hating the artwork," one of the best compliments for a series is that even when it is a style of artwork that you hate, you still really like the series.
I do like how there is so much variety in styles of art.

No options for special effects overuse or would that go into certain styles of art? I freaking hate it when a series overuses glitters and flowers.

That depends on whether you consider "unfinished art" as a style or not.

It was a tough choice between scraggly lines and certain manga art styles. While I think story is more important than the overall art, if it doesn't visually appeal to me, I will likely not read it.

Quote from pyonk
- Unrealistic boobs size (in action/adventure shonen manga).

(Why I rarely read shounen) Since this is not one of the choices, I picked excessively big eyes.

The eyes, hands down. The rest of the art can be gorgeous, if the eyes are pinpricks or cover half the face I move on instantly. I just can't stand it, badly drawn faces are a close number 2, but I can stand those if the story is good. Don't get me wrong, I'm fine with a large range of eyesizes, but if it just gets ridiculously small or large I won't even try to read.

Hmm, should've thought of that one... too late, I guess!
