whoa i didn't even know we had poll option on this site. lol.

i vote for print, even though i always read digital. 'cuz there's a lot more available digitally, and in my area there's very little printed manga anyway. & i won't buy a manga if i haven't already read at least enough of it to know i like it.

I like digital because it drives me nuts when I have a pristine book, and I can't clearly see what's in the crack because I'm afraid of creasing the spine.
I do like books with extra content in them though, like artist's notes.

I rather print but its hard for me to buy them because there are no shops that sell them in my town so I end up reading them on my iPod

I do like the feel of printed manga, but since I am a huge yuri fan I know most of that isn't coming to the U.S . Prefer digital for that sole reason.

I'm still am more for print but the idea of digital is growing on me, storage is becoming (long pass) a problem, and I like the idea of having a lot in one small place. I also like not having to have power to read my book, so for that reason I like print, also I haven't been able to get a tablet yet...

Definitely print, no hesitation there. As a collector ( and despite constantly running out of space ) having manga ( and anime ) sitting physically on my shelves gives me a sense of satisfaction.

I do miss print media for lunchbreaks. It's nice to be able to read while eating without the possibility of getting food on an expensive tablet. But I really only feel this way about magazines. (Gamepro, Yen Plus, Play) Hardly any good print magazines left!
But manga volumes, I do not view as "disposable" in the sense that magazines are.
I try to be minimalist. Anything to save space. I don't even own DVDs/BDs any more.
Also, every time I've tried to read print manga, it seems the store/library is always missing a volume or two. So frustrating!
So overall my vote goes to digital.

Print. I like collecting things and displaying them. Plus I'm more likely to read them again if I own them (that's also partially due to the fact I buy the manga I like the most, however). I also pay better attention to print manga for some reason. I don't read it as fast, and I look at the art on the page longer than digital, whereas digital I click through the pages a lot quicker. Plus there's nothing like holding an actual book in your hand. In my opinion digital cannot compare. There are only two drawbacks to print. It takes up space and therefore cannot be carried around as easily as digital, and the multipage scenes that get lost in the crack can be somewhat annoying, but not enough to warrant me preferring digital over print.

I buy print because it's pretty; yet, I always find it troubling with all print manga how it's kinda uncomfortable to keep the book open specially since I buy a lot of 2-3 in 1 editions, so digital is more comfortable in that way, but certainly uncomfortable for my eyes after a while.

Print, definitely. I love the feel of the Books in My Hands and on My Lap, and the smell of them when they're brand New.

Definitely digital. It's convenient, takes up less space, and really easy to read on a tablet.


(BTW, moved this to the Polls forum, since that's where we put all poll topics regardless of subject matter).
