New Poll - Obtained Physical Manga
This week's poll was suggested by RocketDive. Amazingly we've never had this question before. For myself, I only own < 5 volumes of manga, and all of them were purchased during Anime Expo in bulk.

New Poll - Anime/Manga and You
This introspective poll was suggested by fellow admin Kaioh. I'll admit that I chose the last option "A former or declining pastime." I've been debating on retiring from MU for a while now...sigh...

Even though availability may be high, based on past polls, you guys feel that the price is too high and don't actually buy that much...

New Poll - Manga Availability
This week's poll is from our member Caiman. It deals with the question of the availability of published manga where you live. Technically I guess it's possible to ship things anywhere, but I adjusted it by stating reasonable shipping as a requirement. Costs to import goods can be outrageous...

New Poll - Pirate Remorse
This week's poll suggestion is from residentgrigo. Well, scanlations are sort of like pirating, but with a bit more effort on the part of the providers since people have to translate, edit, proofread, etc. The people providing pirated movies, music, or games usually have to do less manual labor.

It appears males tend to focus on the male-orientated series, while the ladies are split pretty evenly. Now I'm curious what happens if you are allowed you create a character in a video game. Do you create a male or female character? My guess is that the split may follow the above guidelines too

Previous Poll Results:
Question: Should manga characters change their clothing, outfit, appearance?
Choices:
Stick with the same appearance throughout the entire series - votes: 93 (1.1%)
Only change appearances to signify the passage of a lot of time - votes: 1518 (17.3%)
Maybe a change between every story arc is fine - votes: 1801 (20.6%)
I'm okay with several changes within the same arc, but let's not go crazy - votes: 3683 (42%)
Every day that passes should be a new look! Like real life! - votes: 1666 (19%)

The poll ended: July 18th 2015

Seems like more prefer a change in appearance than not. I guess it's boring looking at the same old character every time
