This week's suggestion from BooXx is about the genre you'd most avoid when reading a manga series. We tend to always use the question of "favorite" in the polls, so what about the one you hate the most?

You can submit poll ideas here (and try to keep them manga/anime-related)
http://www.mangaupdates.com/showtopic.php?tid=3903

Previous Poll Results:
Question: Is it okay for guys to have long hair?
Choices:
Only in anime - votes: 1056 (10.3%)
Only in real life - votes: 43 (0.4%)
It's okay in both - votes: 5552 (54.4%)
It's never okay - votes: 514 (5%)
Don't care - votes: 3045 (29.8%)
There were 10210 total votes.
The poll ended: June 17th 2016

I guess certain people can pull it off...

I feel like Ecchi/Hentai/Smut would win this vote hands-down if they were combined into one category. And they sort of are, just to different extents. Ecchi is just milder hentai (but usually coupled with a bit more plot rather than plain PWP) and smut is just ecchi aimed towards female demographics.

A lot wrote that hair care is important or "hard", but i don´t get it. I read up on the topic when i regrew my hair after being in the military and my secret is to not wash it too often, too use volume shampoo and to never expose it to any kind of product or color (i started to get gray hair when i turned 20). I often get envious questions why my hair looks so healthy, so my method 100% worked. Don´t wash it every day, regularly comb it and cut the ends twice a year. Simple and hardly a time sink.

Hentai is a publication form but fine. It´s the least capable of all to offer basic narrative coherence, due to the questionable target audience. Not that Yaoi and Seinen pr0n are any different. They are equally broken. (I would have allowed Shounen / Shoujo-ai into the mix and changed Hentai to Adult.)

I voted harem, which is often involved with "school life" which I try to avoid. There is always an exception or two (for school life), but not for harem. Over it.

For whatever reason for me it seems to be Mecha. I might have voted Horror, because i don't like a lot of horror mangas, but the fact that i can tell this means that i don't really avoid horror genre (and there are some horror mangas that I liked), while the only Mecha Novel that i have ever read and actually liked is Full Metal Panic, which is more of an exception, because i didn't even care about Mecha while reading it, the sci fi there is high quality though... For most part it is like this for me: "oh it is about Mecha? Boring..."

P.S. actually now that I think about it i have read more Yaoi manga than Mecha. (Even though i do prefer a plain heterosexual hentai and tend to avoid Yaoi and Yuri)

Yaoi is demographics not genre... This poll also doesn't include:
Yuri, shotacon, lolicon, shounen, shoujo, seinen, josei, shoujo ai, shounen ai

On the list, the only genre I haven't read is mecha. It's a bit weird to call it my least favorite genre though. I don't dislike it per se, I just have zero interest in reading one of these manga.

Over the years I've pretty much sampled everything, but some stuff I have no interest in or the genre is stale and predictable.

I read manga for the stories and the art not for fap material so I chose Hentai because I don't have a lot of interest in it. If Hentai wasn't on the list then it would be a toss up between Harem and School Life. After you've read a few Harem or School Life manga the novelty wears off quick and am so tired of predictable cultural festival and beach stories. Combine both and its like a double no-no for me. They are both tired genres for me that seldom surprise or do something different.

Haha, so I didn't see Yaoi or NTR and went with Gender Bender. I don't read gender bender series.

Where is my "none" option?
Seriously, I don't avoid any of them. And I feel each of them has its own charm. Though I don't recall reading any mecha lately...

The only genre I actively avoid is Harem.
To me it's pretty much the most pointless plotline of all.

Didn't we have this question a few times before already? I'm getting a bit tired of it, to be honest... Oh well, but anyway... There are more than one genre I avoid, like Hentai, Harem, Gender Bender, Mecha, and in general Smut, too (but that depends on the overall story). Not a Sports fan, either, or Romance (in shojo).
Picking just one genre is hard here.

Surprised to see Gender Bender leading and not Hentai. While I'm open for any genre, the combination Ecchi/Harem makes me instantly doubt the quality of the series, so I'd call them my least favorite genre.

I'm surprised so many people dislike Gender Bender. For me personally, it's Horror because I just can't deal with any of that, regardless of how great the story is.
