Okay, before, when I posted, I wanted to just please you. But now I am venting.

What sort of quality do you expect when you buy a paperback manga.

1. I expect an eight and a half inch size book with a separate high-gloss colored loose paper cover and clearly discernible type that can be read over and over.

2. I will accept a seven and a half inch book with no separate cover but the print is clear.

3. I will accept a seven inch tall book with small, smudgy print in places, but secure pages that don't curl up on reading.

4. I will accept a small book with somewhat legible type, even if the words run into the spine a little bit and I can only read it three times before it comes poor quality.

5. I will accept any junk they give me with tiny illegible print and loose pages.

Okay, this poll is a work under process. I just am sulky, angry and venting. ( I have to mention that my most recent really bad quality books were printed in the U.S. as compared to my larger collection of Japan, China or Canada volumes. Get it together, 'us'!) I forgot to mention the most important thing, the art! It must be nicely presented!

or maybe...

What has been your least favourite female sterotype in manga? (i'm not sure if this has been done before bigrazz )

- weak female (physical and/or mental)
-strong female (physical and/or mental)
-stupid female
-smart female
-the female with insanely unrealistic proportions
-the girl who is obsessed with love
-the girl who can never figure out what a 'beating heart means

i suppose it's a more specific version to the one above biggrin

Do you get angry when people on a message board or chat criticize or make fun of a manga or anime that you love?

1. Yes! I tell them off!
2. I get angry but don't say anything back.
3. I get mad and leave.
4. I try to reason with them and explain why I love it.
5. I don't care what they say about my favorite things. The trolls.
6. I think people should only make positive comments about stuff they like, not be so negative about things no one forced them to read/watch.
7. I like to hear others' opinions, even when they hurt.
8. I am probably that person making the critical comments.

this one i'm quite interested in...

How expensive is it to buy manga where you live?
- Not very. Can buy as many as I want.
- Eh, average. I can buy them, but not too many
- Quite expensive. So expensive that i don't own many at all!
- I don't buy mangas.

I was thinking about putting a price range but that would be difficult due to people living in different countries and stuff.

I unfortunately am the third option, too expensive to make a habit of buying. sad

very interesting for everybody who has read a series that has been axed:

What should a mangaka do, in case his(her series is axed:
- Wrap it up as best as possible and end the main story even though it will be sudden and overhasty
- Make a "season finale" and leave the main story open even though there is no possiblity of picking it up again later

edit: rephrased the possibilities

Quote from whatnot
Assuming you didn't read the prequel of a manga, would you read its sequel?
- I would check out the prequel first, then decide
- I would check out the sequel first, if it's good, why not?
- I would only read it if they have different main characters
- I hate sequels, why didn't the mangaka finish it ...

in the current poll, it's missing a very important option which is:
I read them as they were originally printed. I guess prequel first kinda fits that though technically it's the opossite.
