This week's poll is the brainchild of our member kelly123456000. How many series do you think that you've completed in your entire life? For the purposes of our poll, let's say that the series itself must be completed (so no putting Kochikame on that list). Oneshots are fine, but doujinshi don't count. (Here at MangaUpdates, we consider any non-official work that is based on an official series as a doujinshi. If it's original, it's a oneshot). Well, I guess if you read a lot of oneshots, then your numbers will naturally be a lot higher. Just an estimate is fine!

You can submit poll ideas here (and try to keep them manga/anime-related)

Previous Poll Results:
Question: Opinion of animals or small creatures that function as the pet of the manga's main character
They're so cute! - votes: 2001 (18%)
Love them - votes: 781 (7%)
I'm okay with them - votes: 2345 (21.1%)
They're alright as long as they serve a functional purpose - votes: 3635 (32.7%)
Totally unnecessary to include them - votes: 877 (7.9%)
Could care less - votes: 1464 (13.2%)
There were 11103 total votes.
The poll ended: November 16th 2013

More or less don't care... Not too many haters or lovers

I picked 500-700. Added all the mangas in my complete lists got 633. I know some are missing, but not enough to go to the 700-1000 bracket.

Yes yes, I know I make longwinded comments, but that's just me >.<
I should proof read my comments more, but I won't...
So keep in mind I'm filled with typos

I'm a sucker for oneshots, I added together the number of them and it's 1000+ easily bigrazz

I'm at 500-700, not counting hentai. If I include hentai - and those who read hentai should know it's full of oneshots - the number of series I have completed is at least doubled, easily exceeding 1000.

And this number is just limited to series that are in MU's database.

I went with 1,000+ based on the fact that I've read at least 2,000-3,000 different manga and have finished a good chunk of that. I've been reading manga for a long time so this isn't surprising in the least.

I fail to see the logic behind counting oneshots but not counting doujinshi.
Both establish their story for exactly that one chapter, with doujinshi being written/drawn by fans and oneshots having been published in a manga magazine.
Also, doujinshi =! hentai, for that matter.
There are amazing non-H doujinshi.
There are hentai doujinshi where the H is just the subplot, while retaining a very solid storyline topping many average mangas.
There are hentai mangas where the above also applies, or hentai mangas that have an incredibly fun to read storyline.

Well according to my complete list, which is separated from my "fan" doujinshi list, I've completed 800± (I would also still consider my list incomplete). Though a majority of what I've completed would be single volumes. Series might be something more like 400± I'm really unsure, maybe it's more.

Also although I'm pretty sure I read more series than one-shots, I still have to agree with connerity, why are one-shots fine but not doujin? Either exclude or include both, not one or the other. If this is a matter of "original work" not all doujin are fan works based off of an original series (though I'll agree that a huge majority is). Now if I take your advise and include these original doujin as one-shots, fine, but I still wouldn't consider one-shots and single volumes as a series?

So my conclusion is I have no idea!!! XD

This poll gives a wrong idea.
Their is a difference in people that read a lot of long series (50+ volumes) or people that read a lot of short stuff (One-shots or 1 volume series).

I'm close to 500, but the amount of series I'd tried out is over 5000 (I'm not in the mood to count all my lists.

I basically don't continue to read something that is bad, as this is just a waste of time. cool

When their is hope, their is live.

Indeed I fail to do this poll.

What about series that aren't finished but you caught up with?

Also do raw count?

As I said, I fail to do this poll properly.

According to my complete series' list it's around 500. It has been a while since I updated my lists though, and not reading a lot lately either.

This week's favorites:

- Golden Kamui

Apparently I'm nearing 400 according to my lists. That doesn't include hentai, but that wouldn't make a significant change anyway, even if I did count it. (I tend to read hentai with a few volumes, not just the random oneshots)

If the doujin did count though, according to my list, it adds another ~200, but that's just the ones I've managed to find/remember to add. Pretty sure I've probably hit 700+ when it comes to doujins lol.

So yeah, I'm around the 300-500 mark at the moment. Probably wont go up anytime soon as I'm not reading as much as I used to, nor am I bothering to go through my swamp of a wishlist lol.

I've been reading manga for about 7 years now and I've probably read over 100 series, but I usually read really long mangas so it's really hard to estimate how many. And I'm just too LAZY to update my lists xp. Never really had an interest in oneshots
