This week's poll from CuthienSilmeriel is very simply a demographics one. And yes, the age intervals aren't quite even, and this was done on purpose. Not much to discuss about this one...

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

Question: With books (of all types), you are mostly the...
Choices:
Library type: why buy them when you can borrow? - votes: 1445 (13.5%)
Hoarder type: buy them but don't read most of them - votes: 1519 (14.2%)
Caring type: read and keep them with utmost care - votes: 3719 (34.8%)
Crazy type: buy and re-read them till they fall apart - votes: 1133 (10.6%)
Giver: most buy them to give as gifts - votes: 42 (0.4%)
Average: they're nothing special - votes: 685 (6.4%)
Profiteer: buy, (maybe) read, re-sell - votes: 68 (0.6%)
Electronic: E-books, man! - votes: 1810 (16.9%)
Hater: I hate books - votes: 262 (2.5%)
There were 10683 total votes.
The poll ended: March 28th 2014

Yay, care for your belongings!

Why I'm I not surprised that 80% is between 18 and 30 years?

And the ones older, are way younger under the skin.

Manga is a treasure that most peole discover in their student time?

Or have the Dragonball and Pokémon rages of the past something to do with it?

Sighhh! Thanks for reminding me about my age! I'm probably too old to be reading manga now... but then, I'm probably too old to be doing almost everything else I'm doing right now! Severe late-bloomer syndrome... dead

Haha I just turned 22 yesterday, so I can choose the 22-25 option now XD

I don't feel 22 though. I swear my head still thinks I'm 18 or something. It seems to be in denial that I'm graduating this year and I need to get a job. Nopenopenopenope

the one who interest is actually children or who used to be children who read manga.
i'm not really surprise that 10 or under is the least.
because, either they buy the book or don't even know that mangaupdates exists in the first place biggrin

You might have something there. Pokemon, DBZ, and Sailor Moon were, usually, the first anime/manga that many of us started with. Of course, my first anime was actually Vampire Hunter D when it showed on Cartoon Network back in 91, but I didn't start becoming a fan of it until DBZ and Sailor Moon on Toonami.

The person who suggested the poll thought most would be teenagers. Well, I knew that's not the case.

Usually I'm in the minorityŚnow I'm in the majority.

As for the side discussion going on, I "read" manga before I could read. The first anime I watched was properly Doraemon or Lupin III or something equally mainstream. But who knows, maybe it was Jarinko Chie or Macross or whatever else they happened to show.
