New Poll - Release Gap
This week's poll from Toushin is a bit wordy and could potentially be confusing. We're talking about the case where you're reading a series, and suddenly you discover that chapters 45-50 were never scanlated, but someone else scanlated starting from chapter 51 and on. As a reader, what do you do about the missing releases? I'd personally just stop reading and wait. But it sucks...sigh...

I should've modified the "first to see the chapter" option to include the idea of spoiling the chapter for everyone

New Poll - Mangaka Assistant
For this week's poll from StaticHD, you should be able to realize that this isn't a serious poll due to some of the weirder options. Although I guess I could've done something like "Being able to stare into the eyes of the mangaka"...

Looks like half of us would consider it at the very least, while the other half wouldn't wanna do it at all. I wonder what the poll would look like if it was English instead of Japanese?

New Poll - Manga Cafe
This week's poll is from icassop. If there was a manga cafe near you, would you go? I'd probably try it once, but I'd be too busy to go again. Reminds me of the time I visited a board game cafe. I'd love to go again though!
