New Poll - Trolley Problem
(29 posts, 430 views) Posted: 17 days ago by KaoriNite in News
If all things are equal, I would choose to kill 1 person. By "doing nothing" you are still actively making a choice.
New Poll - Older Relationships
(19 posts, 361 views) Posted: about 1 month ago by KaoriNite in News
I could date someone 10 years older than me. The older you get, the less age differences matter. I'm 31 now, so I don't think dating someone 41 would be shocking. However, I just really couldn't see myself dating someone 10 years younger than me. ...
New Poll - Race/Origin
(43 posts, 706 views) Posted: 3 months ago by KaoriNite in News
I'm black, but I just want to say that this poll shows how messy the concept of race is. How Americans define race has changed over time and will continue to change (for example Hispanic/Latino isn't considered a race anymore on the census, but an...
New Poll - Precognition
(13 posts, 343 views) Posted: 4 months ago by KaoriNite in News
I'd try to have as much fun as possible. I don't think I could prevent the catastrophe. Given how some people are currently handling the Covid pandemic, and how people are still reluctant to make major changes to address climate change, I doubt I ...
New Poll - Manga based on Western Literature
(16 posts, 354 views) Posted: 4 months ago by KaoriNite in News
I think "The fact that it's based off an established work makes it LESS likely I would read the manga" and "It would put me off from reading the manga" are kind of the same. But yes, if it was based on a specific piece of Western literature I woul...
New Poll - Sustenance with Manga
(15 posts, 310 views) Posted: 5 months ago by KaoriNite in News
I drink (non-alcoholic beverages) when reading. On some occasions, I'll have a snack. I've never eaten a full meal while reading, that's too distracting.
New Poll - Finding New Series
(22 posts, 434 views) Posted: 5 months ago by KaoriNite in News
I usually only read series that have been completed, so I search through the new releases to see what chapters have been marked as ended. I also will do searches based on genres and categories and what is marked completed.
New Poll - Bad Rereads
(16 posts, 520 views) Posted: 6 months ago by KaoriNite in News
Sometimes. When I first started reading manga there were a lot of series that impressed me. As I read more, I started to realize that a lot of the series I liked were actually pretty cliche.
New Poll - Age
(20 posts, 601 views) Posted: 6 months ago by KaoriNite in News
I'll be 31 later this year.

I was here 6 years ago and thought I'd never stop reading manga. But I'm reading a lot less manga now compared to before, so I wouldn't be surprised if I stopped reading it in a few years.
New Poll - What Makes a "Manga"?
(17 posts, 341 views) Posted: 6 months ago by KaoriNite in News
It's hard for me to choose because I would actually accept any of the three following answers, 1) if was written in Japanese 2) if it was published by a Japanese company or made for the Japanese market and 3) if it had manga-style artwork. Also, i...
New Poll - Partner's Interests
(25 posts, 415 views) Posted: 7 months ago by KaoriNite in News
I would've loved an option for "What significant other?". Some of us are #foreveralone lol. But to answer in the hypothetical, no it doesn't matter. I think it's important to have some similar interests with your partner, but for me it doesn't nee...
New Poll - Chapter Length
(12 posts, 260 views) Posted: 9 months ago by KaoriNite in News
I won't say I don't really care, but I think it depends on the genre and how often the manga releases new chapters. There is one series I read that releases a new chapter around every other month but the chapters are only 20~ pages, so it's super ...
New Poll - Binge-Reading Manga
(11 posts, 313 views) Posted: 9 months ago by KaoriNite in News
I typically only read manga that are complete, so I usually only binge-read. But the genres I read tend to have shorter series, so it's not a big deal to binge-read a one- or two-volume manga.
New Poll - Racism in Manga
(34 posts, 1172 views) Posted: about 1 year ago by KaoriNite in News
Quote from Transdude1996
WHAT IS ACTUALLY WRONG WITH RACISM? And, yes, that is a serious question.


Wow, I did not think we would actually have to address this. Next we'll have to start asking "was the Holocaust actually bad?" and "what's wrong with...
New Poll - Racism in Manga
(34 posts, 1172 views) Posted: about 1 year ago by KaoriNite in News
I think at a certain point you have to stop cutting people slack by assuming all racism in other cultures is unintentional or due to a lack of cultural understanding. It's easy to think "well they probably don't realize why that is so offensive". ...
New Poll - I Forgot Something
(16 posts, 460 views) Posted: about 1 year ago by KaoriNite in News
Usually I don't forget anything important. I used to forget to charge my phone. I did this so often that I ended up getting a second charger to leave at work.
New Poll - Unknown Gender Pronouns

Just use the name you have and fudge grammar as much as possible while setting an editor´s note.

While I appreciate the effort not to assume gender I feel like this option just makes sentences needlessly clunky. And it doesn't really help wh...
New Poll - Unrelated Series Oneshots
(9 posts, 308 views) Posted: about 1 year ago by KaoriNite in News
I just hate not knowing that the oneshot is unrelated to the series. A lot of times I've read manga and think I have one more chapter left only to be disappointed that the chapter is completely unrelated to the original story.
New Poll - Weather
(18 posts, 381 views) Posted: about 1 year ago by KaoriNite in News
I love the snow. It's so beautiful, and you can hit people with it 😁
New Poll - K-pop
(27 posts, 575 views) Posted: about 1 year ago by KaoriNite in News
I got into k-pop around 4 or 5 years ago. My favorite groups are Seventeen, Monsta X and BTS.
New Poll - Voting in Elections
(7 posts, 260 views) Posted: about 1 year ago by KaoriNite in News
I vote sometimes. I don't vote more often because I don't feel like my vote really counts. With the way American politics is set up, (if you know anything about the electoral college works, gerrymandering, etc) how much your vote counts depends on...
New Poll - Acceptable Spoilers
(18 posts, 524 views) Posted: over 2 years ago by KaoriNite in News
I don't think it's ever okay to give away spoilers to a manga (or movie, or tv show) regardless of when it's released. You should always give a spoiler warning to make sure the people you are discussing the series with are okay hearing spoilers. I...
New Poll - First Chapter Enough?
(17 posts, 546 views) Posted: over 2 years ago by KaoriNite in News
It depends. I read a lot of one volume series, and with those I can generally tell before getting halfway through the first chapter. But you can also have a series that you like in the beginning, but then because of how the plot develops in the la...
New Poll - Glasses
(17 posts, 684 views) Posted: over 2 years ago by KaoriNite in News
Yes, but only for specific things. I'm near-sighted and have a bit of astigmatism. My sight isn't so bad that I can't operate without them, so I mostly just need to wear them when I'm driving. I also wear them at work, but that's mostly because I ...
New Poll - Spoilers in Ads
(10 posts, 375 views) Posted: over 2 years ago by KaoriNite in News
For new series, I watch enough of the trailer to decide if I want to watch that series or not. After I've decided it's something I want to see, I attempt to go on a media blackout and avoid all new trailers. If it's a new season of a show I alread...
