Happy Mother's Day! (+ New Poll)
Happy Mother's Day to everyone! Go wish all your older female relatives a happy day~ Hope you got nice presents for them too (manga, anybody?)

And to celebrate the occasion, we have a new poll with "motherly" as the first choice.
Question: Which type of person/role do you like seeing most in manga?
(I thought of the poll on the spur of the moment, so apologies for some lame choices...Also, I'm a day late with the new poll, so sorry about that. I was busy the whole day yesterday...)

You can discuss the poll here: http://www.mangaupdates.com/showtopic.php?tid=5574
And if you choose "other" as an option, feel free to tell us which unlisted type of person you like seeing most!

Previous Poll Results:
Question: How do you generally like the endings of series?
Choices:
It couldn't have ended in any better way! - votes: 844 (12.7%)
It was good, but could've been better...But I don't think I could write a better ending - votes: 3563 (53.6%)
Man, I could write a better ending than that author! - votes: 1167 (17.6%)
I hate all endings! Let the series continue forever! - votes: 1069 (16.1%)
There were 6643 total votes.
The poll ended: May 11th 2008

Yes, I knew all the problems with that poll, but oh well...I guess most people are generally satisfied with the endings, but don't have the writing talent or creativity to make it better.

Recent site availability and downtimes...
Hi everyone,

I apologize for the recent downtimes of the site. I've made some changes and hopefully it will not happen anymore. I'll keep watching.

Endings Poll
I did a poll of my own for once in honor of the ending of certain series that I loved...Question is simple enough:
How do you generally like the endings of series?

You can discuss the poll on the forum here: http://www.mangaupdates.com/showtopic.php?tid=5480

Previous Poll Results:
Question: How well do you draw? (Manga or just pictures in general)
Choices:
I can draw as well as the leading mangakas - votes: 303 (3.3%)
I occasionally do doujinshi (and/or sell my own works) - votes: 151 (1.7%)
I am a moderately good drawer that can do my own work - votes: 2255 (24.7%)
I need a picture in front of me to copy - votes: 2016 (22.1%)
I need to trace a picture - votes: 607 (6.7%)
I CAN DRAW STICK FIGURES!!! - votes: 2900 (31.8%)
What's a pencil? - votes: 885 (9.7%)
There were 9117 total votes.
The poll ended: May 3rd 2008

One of our more popular polls, I would say. A lot of people seem to think they're all that with their mad drawing skills...but who can say if they're lying or not? I bet most people just had fun with the stick figure option, haha

Two Ribon Series Ending
kajitsu writes: It's finally official: TANEMURA Arina's Shinshi Doumei Cross will end with the next issue of Ribon. So it will be completed with 47 chapters (supposedly 11 volumes). Nevertheless, in the next Ribon issue (7/2008) a new series from Arina will start: Zettai Kakusei Tenshi Mistress Fortune

Also, OOUCHI Natsumi's Aozora Pop ended in the recent Ribon issue. This series is now 25 chapters (5 volumes)

Mx0 & Hatsukoi Limited **Ending**
Apparently, the series Mx0 and Hatsukoi Limited will end soon. No reason was given. By "soon", they will end within the next few chapters, not right away.

Both are featured in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump.

Drawing Poll
New poll, and it's about drawing! Basically, how are your drawing skills? Personally, mine are horrible...but at least I know what a pencil is, right? This poll suggestion was submitted by member funkmu1.

If you want to discuss this on the forum, here's the thread: http://www.mangaupdates.com/showtopic.php?tid=5392

Previous Poll Results:
Question: How do you prefer your translated sfx? (The sound effects like "ba" or "doki doki")
Choices:
Left alone (not translated at all) - votes: 977 (12.8%)
In a glossary (at the end of a chapter) - votes: 237 (3.1%)
In the margins - votes: 3062 (40.1%)
Beside the original sfx (so you see both original and translated together) - votes: 1858 (24.4%)
Overlaying the original sfx (right on top of the original) - votes: 224 (2.9%)
Replacing the original sfx - votes: 1271 (16.7%)
There were 7629 total votes.
The poll ended: April 26th 2008

An OVERWHELMING majority of people wanted to see SFX in the margins of their scanlations. For all you scanlators out there reading this, you may want to consider going with what people want, and put the SFX in the margins (probably easier on the editors, too, haha)
