New Poll - Memories of Rebirth
This week's poll is an unusual one from F_J. He (or she?) mentions that there are many isekai series, of which many have the concept of rebirth. So if you were reborn, would you like to remember your past life? And if so, at what time of your new life would you prefer to remember your past life?

New Poll - Manga Reading (No Breaks)
Looks like we have another poll about time. This time around, our member yuuki16 suggested that we ask about the longest time you've read manga without any breaks. For me, I think it was the time in high school where I spent an entire night trying to finish Death Note. I just couldn't put it down. I think I read it for 7 hours straight.
