New Poll - First Fandom
As PinkShippuden suggests (and 狂気 helped add some options), we all had to have started somewhere to get into this fandom of the anime/manga world. So of the media choices, which was your first introduction into this world of delights? My first would probably have to be the original Pokemon TV series, which started getting popular around my 3rd grade.

Started from the bottom and now we're here. Not that Pokemon was the bottom. Far from it. Ah, memories...

New Poll - After Finishing a Series
This week's poll is from our member whatnot. After you finishing reading a series, what would you typically hope to find relating to that series? Personally, I tend to read the other works by that author. For instance, after finishing Suzuka, I read everything else by SEO Kouji.

New Poll - Sexism
This week's poll from cowsrawesome could potentially bother some people, but I'm gonna put it up anyways, since it's something to think about. Of the given options, which one of the sexist tropes bothers you the most? Your peeve may not be on that list, but choose the closest fit of the available choices.

I agree that this was a really weird poll, but some stuff happened over the last week that caused me to not have time to really focus on deciding on a weekly poll, and I also didn't have time to change it to something else once I realized just how badly worded this one was... So oh well.
