New Poll - Manga Filler
This is sort of related to the length of a manga series. Our member jacob66 was interested in your opinion in manga fillers. With manga, filler would be chapters that don't contribute to the main plot line (or even side plot lines), of course assuming the series even has a main plot line. It could be a couple of chapters of fan service. Or it could be an entire multi-chapter arc that's basically self-contained and never referenced to again.

New Poll - Long Series
Karonhioktha is wondering when a manga series outstays its welcome. When is a series too long? For some perspective, the current longest series is Kochira Katsushika-ku Kameari Kōen-mae Hashutsujo with 200 volumes. Golgo 13 is at 184. Naruto only got to 72, while Bleach was 74. One Piece is still going with 85. There's even a Wikipedia article at count . You'll notice that most of the series are shounen. I guess shoujo know when to quit.

New Poll - Anime/Manga Merchandise 2
This week's poll was suggested by Rasparr. It's a continuation of a poll from a few weeks ago. Many of you either seldom or never buy merchandise, so the natural thing to ask is why? The choices won't fit every situation, so feel free to comment below!

Previous Poll Results:
Question: Do you read doujinshi for a series that you like?
Yes, I go searching for all that doujinshi! - votes: 1245 (21.7%)
I don't go looking for it, but I'll read it if I encounter it - votes: 1865 (32.4%)
Very seldom - votes: 1297 (22.6%)
Never - votes: 1341 (23.3%)
There were 5748 total votes.
The poll ended: June 2nd 2017

I guess the natural follow-up would be to ask if the doujinshi you do read are of the 18+ nature or something tamer.
