New Poll - Out of Order Scanlations
This week's poll was suggested by F_J. You ever encounter scanlations where the chapters aren't done in publication order? Maybe they skip around from chapter 4 to 9 to 6. Or maybe chapters 1-25 are done, and then suddenly another group starts at chapter 71.

New Poll - Chapter Length
This week's poll wasn't technically from zeazea. zeazea suggested this idea, but the wording of this particular poll was developed by Lucky9, back in 2008. We're actually re-doing an old poll.

New Poll - Binge-Reading Manga
This poll was suggested by ForeignerChan. In case you don't know the concept of binge-reading, it's similar to binge-watching a TV series (or anime). You know how Netflix has every episode available to watch? Might as well watch the entire season in a single sitting! Do you do that for manga? Personally, I remember pulling an all-nighter to finish reading Death Note because I just couldn't put it down and wanted to see how it ended.

Previous Poll Results:
Question: What kinds of fights do you prefer to see in manga?
Choices:
I don't like fighting - votes: 361 (12.8%)
Unrealistic fights, i.e., fights that use magic, ki, ninjitsu, or other special abilities - votes: 1766 (62.8%)
Realistic fights, i.e., fights that could occur in real life - votes: 683 (24.3%)
There were 2810 total votes.
The poll ended: February 1st 2020

Some people argued that even the "realistic" fights aren't that realistic because a person would be incapacitated much more easily than shown in most manga, even ones that are just fighting with their fists.

I'm glad some people looked at the explanation! Now you should look up hard vs. soft science fiction. Or maybe high vs. low fantasy.
