New Poll - Classic Manga
This week's poll was suggested by Akatsubaki. Have you read "classic" manga series before, and if so, when was the last time you read one? Feel free to name some of your favorite classics! By classic, I'm talking about series that ended ages ago (like pre-2000), such as Dragon Ball, Nausicaa of the Valley of Wind, Drifting Classroom, Ranma 1/2, Rurouni Kenshin, Akira, Fist of the North Star, Tokyo Babylon, Fushigi Yuugi, and Itazura na Kiss.

Previous Poll Results:
Question: Do care about random character bio that doesn't affect the story (such as a character's birthday or blood type)?
All the details are awesome! - votes: 2512 (39.4%)
Not important at all, so don't include them - votes: 1700 (26.7%)
No opinion - votes: 2160 (33.9%)
There were 6372 total votes.
The poll ended: August 26th 2016

I guess it depends on the details... I always wondered what this obsession with blood type was about.

New Poll - Character Bio
This week's poll comes from our member mr.poneis. You know how sometimes there's a bunch of biographical information for a character that isn't important to the plot usually? It's stuff like birthday, blood type, favorite food, favorite music, etc. For that kind of stuff, do you have any opinions about looking into those details?

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

Question: Would you read a manga adaptation of an American comic? (Marvel, DC, etc)
Yes, of course! - votes: 1485 (12.6%)
I might try it - votes: 4775 (40.5%)
Probably not - votes: 3698 (31.4%)
No way - votes: 1824 (15.5%)
There were 11782 total votes.
The poll ended: August 20th 2016

Looks like stuff like this already exists. Check out Batman (KUWATA Jirou)

No New Poll This Week
Sorry, no new poll this week. I'm in an area without much Internet for the next few days, so I'm not able to do a new poll. First time I missed this in years... Took me over 15 minutes just to connect and submit this post because of the spotty connection.

Sorry folks for that unexpected downtime. We'll try to track down the cause and make sure it doesn't happen again. Hope you are all enjoying Otakon for those of you who are here!

New Poll - American Comics as Manga
drunkguy suggested something that I never even thought about before. Would you read a manga adaptation of an American comic franchise/hero? You know, like Spider-man or Superman. Mostly Marvel and DC, but there's other stuff out there...
