This week's poll by lovelykitty6669 is a little long-winded, but I'm not quite sure how to shorten it and keep the same meaning. If your favorite manga (or anime, I guess) character from your favorite series appeared in front of you and gave you a chance to live in his/her world, but the catch is that you can never come back to the real world again, would you do it? Post a comment below about which series this happens to be and why you'd do it or not do it!

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

Question: Do you archive fansubs?
Choices:
Yes, everything - votes: 1525 (19.1%)
Only a few - votes: 2644 (33.1%)
I watch and then delete - votes: 749 (9.4%)
I only stream - votes: 1940 (24.3%)
I don't watch fansubs - votes: 1123 (14.1%)
There were 7981 total votes.
The poll ended: February 15th 2014

Less responses than the manga version, but that's to be expected since this is a manga site. However, it still appears that many people safe their fansubs, despite having much larger file sizes than manga.

Living on this planet is so damn boring.

Noooooo

Most of the manga I enjoy to read seems to have something that wants to destroy the world/universe/reality or something for some reason. I'm fine here, thank you very much.

Probably not.

I'd be too worried about the people/things I leave behind. Maybe if I knew there wouldn't be problems back at home, and I'd be livin' the life in the new world I wouldn't so much...but I like psycho characters with unhealthy obsessions. I don't foresee a happy ending, at least not on my end. xD

Yes, definitely for most of those worlds. Not sth like Attack on Titan though hehe. I can't bear living everyday in fear.

Kinda pointless if your favorite series happens to be a slice of life, innit?
Seriously though, teenage me would've said yes quite easily. Now...maybe not so much.

It really depends on if whether or not the underlying features of the world i go to would apply to me or not.

An example would be Infinite Stratos. Would I be entitled to pilot one, or would it reject me as someone foreign to the world?

Mmm this one's hard. Not too long ago I would've said yes in a heartbeat. But thinking about my family and everything I've worked for/endured until now would be sad to leave behind. It'd be more or less traumatic to suddenly abandon something you've accepted as a definitive reality for so long.

That said, I think if that world offered greater opportunities, adventure and/or I was able to contact love ones of my whereabouts, I would say yes. Imagined realms have potentially far less limitations than Earth. And they're just more awesome in general

EDIT: I feel like the poll should be "if a character from your favorite manga..." because my favorite manga characters probably come from somewhere I wouldn't want to visit..

Yes I would, But only if the Tsubasa: RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE Logic applies. In that If go to this said world, I would be like them aka if the world has powers I would also get that kind of power based on my nature and such.
And I got to many Favorites...

One Piece - I would Join Luffy's crew, I like Wind (ever since Kaze no Stigma) and Trees, so I would want Wind Wind no fruit, or Tree Tree no Fruit.

Fairy Tail - I would Join Fairy Tail, would want to join on missions with Natsu and all, but also would not mind going on lone quest. Magic preference would be Air Elemental Magic, with a side of expert potion mixture.

UQ Holder! - I would join this big universe of magic. Immortal by werewolf with some whatever werewolf magic there is in the world.

Naruto - Post Current war... I don't want to get involved in that. As Hyūga Clan member, who eventually masters Sage Mode, and can summon a 3 - 5 meter wolf to help fight, able to go bigger.

Shijou Saikyou no Deshi Kenichi - Join the Dojo and master Muay Thai and Kosaka Style

Shit to much to pick from, but one of them.

I don't think I would. Couldn't do it to my family and I'd miss them too much.
Probably would have said yes if I was still 15 though XD

I dunno, living on a world with plenty of characters with enough power to blow it up and in a world where the entire world population has died once does not sound nice to me (dragonball).
