New Poll - Background Art
This week's poll was suggested by Calamansi. For the background art in the series you read, how much detail do you like in them? I remember that the backgrounds in Mahou Sensei Negima! were quite detailed. Then there's shoujo where a lot of panels will just have sparkles and stuff to indicate the mood of the character.

Now how many people say they'll read it later and actually never do? I'm the kind of person that rarely goes back to read something again. Same with rarely re-watching movies or TV shows.

New Poll - Storing Physical Manga
This week's poll comes from the mind of our member psycho-shocker. If you do own some physical copies of manga, what do you tend to do with them after reading them?

Edit: I just realized that I forgot an option for "I collect and never read them in the first place". Oh well, probably a rare case.

This week's poll was suggested by our member AmDnim. When you're checking for the existence of a new release, what's the first place you go to? MangaUpdates of course! (Maybe... that's the whole point of the poll)

Germany, Brazil, Netherlands... Pretty similar to what you guys thought 4 years ago (except that Spain's already gone, so they weren't even included in this poll). Netherlands has a much higher vote than last time though! Good for them! But hey, at least USA got out of the group of death!

New Poll - 2014 FIFA World Cup
As MewMan reminded me, I really should have done this poll last week, but I forgot... The poll only contains the countries that haven't yet been eliminated. However, by the time you vote in the poll, it's entirely possible your top choice is already gone... We did a similar poll 4 years ago, and the top picks by MU were Brazil, Germany, and Spain (in that order). Let's see what happens this time!

And for all you people who don't care about soccer/football, too bad.

I'm actually surprised. This is more evenly spread out than I expected. My guess was that the higher population choices would have many more votes, but I guess not...
