New Poll - Live Action Adaptations
Another poll suggested by residentgrigo. The last time we did this poll was back in 2009 after Dragonball Evolution came out. And in a couple of months is the release of Ghost in the Shell. Please don't suck. Just, please.

New Poll - Alignment
This week's poll from residentgrigo is about Dungeons & Dragons alignments. Feel free to interpret what "preferred" means in whatever context you like. I actually play 5e once a week, so this poll hits close to home. For the uninitiated, D&D is the first modern role-playing game, helping spawn a new genre of tabletop games and video games. If you want a written definition of what each choice means, read this wiki article. If you want some examples from movies, see this image chart. There's no labels on the axis, but it goes
  • Up: Good
  • Down: Evil
  • Left: Lawful
  • Right: Chaotic
  • Middle: Neutral

I disagree with some of the movie examples, but it's better than nothing...

New Poll - Dere
This week's poll comes from our member Homura_Heart. It requires a bit of knowledge of terminology, some of which isn't that common (even in our niche of manga). If you really wanna answer this poll, I suggest you Google each term first. I won't bother trying to explain it all here. And honestly, I'm not expecting that many voters this week.
