New Poll - Long Anime
This week's poll is similar to the one a few weeks ago about long manga series, but our member zeazea suggested anime. I didn't like zeazea's options though, so I made it more similar to the manga poll.

For comparison's sake, here's some numbers for the number of episodes (taken from Wikipedia), Please note that some of these are still ongoing, so the numbers are as of today:
Original Naruto: 220
Naruto: Shippuden: 500
Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters (original in US): 224
Pokemon (original): 279
Dragon Ball Z: 291
Bleach: 366
One Piece: 797
Crayon Shin-chan: 937
Doraemon (2005): 865

New Poll - Eating Apples
This week's poll from KaoriNite is a little random. How do you eat your apples? I wanted to keep it simple, so I didn't include options for slicing vs. eating whole, or removing stem vs. leaving it in, or eating from top-down vs. bottom-up.

Of the people with regular schedules, between 6-7 appears to be the most popular. I guess another poll could be how early do you wake up before your first scheduled activity (like work or school), or how long does it take you to get ready to leave your home between waking up and actually leaving?

New Poll - Manga Filler
This is sort of related to the length of a manga series. Our member jacob66 was interested in your opinion in manga fillers. With manga, filler would be chapters that don't contribute to the main plot line (or even side plot lines), of course assuming the series even has a main plot line. It could be a couple of chapters of fan service. Or it could be an entire multi-chapter arc that's basically self-contained and never referenced to again.

New Poll - Long Series
Karonhioktha is wondering when a manga series outstays its welcome. When is a series too long? For some perspective, the current longest series is Kochira Katsushika-ku Kameari Kōen-mae Hashutsujo with 200 volumes. Golgo 13 is at 184. Naruto only got to 72, while Bleach was 74. One Piece is still going with 85. There's even a Wikipedia article at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_manga_series_by_volume_ count . You'll notice that most of the series are shounen. I guess shoujo know when to quit.
