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 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_manga_series_by_volume_ 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!

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%)

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

This week's poll was suggested by F_J. Have you ever managed to convince someone else to try out anime/manga, and they became a fan for life? Or maybe it's just a secret hobby that no one else knows about...
