This week's poll was suggested by jacob66. Let's say you die in some world catastrophe (zombie apocalypse, meteor, nuclear war, COVID-19, etc) but are magically transported back into the past by a few years. How would you live your life knowing what's coming?

New Poll - Differences in the English Language
This week's interesting poll was suggested by NightMongoose. I hope you already knew that besides accents there can be other regional differences in English, even just within the US (coke, pop, or soda?). Or trunk vs. boot. Or napkin vs. serviette. Should manga translations cater to specific regions? Does it matter in scanlations where the intent is global? Or does it matter more for a company that only has the license to publish in the UK?

New Poll - Powers Reliant on Powers
This week's poll was suggested by jacob66. What's your opinion on powers that are reliant on other powers in order to work? I guess it technically depends on the population density of how many other people have powers and the likelihood of encountering another person with a power.

I remember watching the anime for Romeo x Juliet purely because I knew the source material.

New Poll - Manga based on Western Literature
This poll was suggested by SrAndrerz. To be honest, the poll is a bit of a mess. It should really be split into multiple questions, but I just didn't bother. If you want to write a comment, please consider these things
  • Does a series based on an established work make a difference in your reading decision? Not as much can be new and exciting since it can't deviate too much from the source.
  • Does you knowing how it's supposed to end make a difference?
  • Does it make a difference that it's derivative and not the source? (Like manga that's based off an anime)
  • Does it make a difference that the source is Western literature?
