New Poll - Mangaka Assistant
For this week's poll from StaticHD, you should be able to realize that this isn't a serious poll due to some of the weirder options. Although I guess I could've done something like "Being able to stare into the eyes of the mangaka"...

You can submit poll ideas here (and try to keep them manga/anime-related)

Previous Poll Results:
Question: If you could magically change your primary language to Japanese right now, would you do it?
Choices:
For sure! - votes: 2542 (22%)
Maybe... - votes: 2771 (24%)
Sounds cool, but no thanks - votes: 5304 (46%)
No way, not even if you paid me - votes: 860 (7.5%)
My primary language is already Japanese, but I'd prefer changing to something else - votes: 37 (0.3%)

Looks like half of us would consider it at the very least, while the other half wouldn't wanna do it at all. I wonder what the poll would look like if it was English instead of Japanese?

New Poll - Dropping a Series
Last poll from icassop for a while (I promise!). What's the most likely reason for you to stop reading a series that you had initially enjoyed? The options aren't exhaustive, but I gave you a wide range of choices!

New Poll - Manga Cafe
This week's poll is from icassop. If there was a manga cafe near you, would you go? I'd probably try it once, but I'd be too busy to go again. Reminds me of the time I visited a board game cafe. I'd love to go again though!

New Poll - Old vs. New Group
This week's poll from Nekomikoto is a bit wordy, but it actually happens a lot. Say you're reading a series that you like, and just one particular group is working on it. Suddenly a new group pops up and starts doing releases for the same series. Which group's releases are you going to choose now?

I feel the tendency is that the new group is the faster one, with usually less quality. So for a while I'll stick with the old group, but then the old group drops the project because they can't handle the load (and probably has other projects to work on). Then I play catch up with the new group since I'm behind a bunch of chapters now.

Almost 50% will watch once and skip the rest. I fall in this camp too.
