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.

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%)

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.

New Poll - Hard vs. Soft Magic Systems
This week's poll was suggested by Sosseres, and it requires some explanation. The distinction between hard vs. soft magic systems was popularized by one of my favorite authors, Brandon Sanderson.

Soft: The rules and limitations of the magic isn't really explained. It's all just fantasy to the reader. Stuff happens, and it's powerful. Some examples are The Lord of the Rings and the kind of magic you see in Disney movies.

Hard: There is an explanation for how magic works with clear costs and limitations. To the reader, it's more technical than fantastical. For example, you have Fullmetal Alchemist and Mx0.

It's really a spectrum though, so series typically fall somewhere in between. Naruto started hard but got softer as the series progressed. In my opinion, many long-running series fall into this trap of continually introducing new antagonists that are somehow stronger than anyone before with very little explanation. If you want a more detailed explanation, go read the .
