New Poll - Manga vs. Anime
Well, seeing as this IS a manga site...I'm kinda expecting biased answers, but oh well. Let's see how it goes!

Come and discuss it on our forums here:

Previous Poll Results:
Question: When do you tend to read manga?
24/7, except for eating and sleeping - votes: 1022 (11.6%)
During the day (at school, work, etc) - votes: 443 (5%)
After I come home (from school, work, etc) - votes: 3148 (35.7%)
In the middle of the night when it's nice and quiet (and no one's watching...) - votes: 1146 (13%)
Only when I have time - votes: 782 (8.9%)
Random times when I get the "urge" - votes: 2267 (25.7%)
There were 8808 total votes.
The poll ended: June 14th 2008

Results are what I expected from a typical audience. Not a lot of us can do our favorite things 24/7...Still though, you get that "urge", but there's no manga near you at the time! What happens then? sad
Still though, quite a lot of people like to read manga at the dead hours of the night. Maybe they just like the horror stuff and want a scare, haha

Two Shonen Sunday Series Over... and Another Soon!?
Anonymous writes: In two consecutive issues, two series were abruptly ended in Shonen Sunday. In Issue #26, Marine Hunter ended with a total of 49 chapters and in Issue #27, Dive!! ended with a total of 48 chapters.

Also, a translated spoiler from 2Ch, , about InuYasha reads that chapter 558 will be the last chapter, meaning that InuYasha will end in Issue #29, June 18th, after a 12 year run.

New Poll - Obsessive Checking...
New poll about how often you check up for new releases. This one was suggested quite a while back by member c_k.

More or less. Not 100% obsessive, but I think manga/anime are some of the best things ever - votes: 4512 (45.5%)
Not really. I read manga and/or watch anime often, but I still put my social life over that stuff - votes: 2808 (28.3%)

Quite a popular poll! A good chunk of people really like anime/manga, but not enough to die for it...

I guess most of us are too embarrassed to do much with cosplay, eh? (Including me actually...)
