New Genre: Topical
We've added a new genre: "Topical". This is from the description:

"Primarily focuses on one major topic, such as the game Go in Hikaru no Go or bread making in Yakitate!! Japan"

Please help us update any series that seems to fit that description!

Update: It seems that people are seeing this category in a few different ways than I originally intended, so I'm going to suspend this until I figure out how to deal with that.

Favorite Moment Poll
Quite a long poll this time (but a fun one nevertheless). Poll was submitted by member reanimated838uk. Choose from the list of historical moments in manga~ (Yeah, I know it's somewhat limited in choices, but oh well)

If you have your own customized favorite moment, you can discuss it here:

Previous Poll Stats:
Question: What is your optimal manga length?
Oneshots (Read more stories in less time) - votes: 148 (1.8%)
1-5 volumes (Fairly quick reads) - votes: 644 (7.8%)
6-10 volumes (Right in the middle is just right) - votes: 1707 (20.8%)
11-20 volumes (It takes a while to develop characters/plot) - votes: 2836 (34.6%)
21+ volumes (I love it so much that I don't want it to stop!) - votes: 2870 (35%)
There were 8205 total votes.
The poll ended: April 12th 2008

It appears we have a ton of people that just love to see the story go on and on and on...Think Naruto/Bleach/One Piece. Will these series ever end? Well, look at Prince of Tennis; it finally ended...

Manga Length Poll
It's that time again: new poll time!
Question: What is your optimal manga length?
(Thanks go to the member Lucky9 for submitting the poll question)

I wonder how many people want Naruto/Bleach/One Piece to end...(Look at Prince of Tennis though; it finally ended...)

Previous Poll Stats:
Question: Do you watch the anime versions of the mangas you read?
All the time - votes: 893 (13.1%)
If the manga was good - votes: 2901 (42.5%)
Only for specific genres - votes: 389 (5.7%)
Sometimes, if I have nothing better to do - votes: 1275 (18.7%)
No, I prefer to stick with the original manga - votes: 753 (11%)
I read the manga after watching the anime - votes: 617 (9%)
There were 6828 total votes.
The poll ended: April 5th 2008

Hmm, it appears that most people read the manga first, and then decide if they should watch the anime or not, as long as the manga was good. At least these are the stats for mainly manga readers...Just remember that anime seems to be more popular~

Revamped "What's New" section
I've taken the liberty to update the "What's New" section. It now shows releases that are dated for 2008 and you can sort them 3 ways, by date added, by rating, and by past 3 month activity stats.

Hopefully this will be more useful than what was there before.

April Fool's Day
Although it is April Fool's Day, we at B-U WILL NOT tolerate any fake releases being announced/reported to us. If we, by accident, allow a fake release to get through, please report the mistake to us. (This includes manga and anime releases)

If any group attempts to keep posting fake releases as a joke, we will take severe action against the said group. We wish to remain as accurate as possible for our members

Anime Poll
New poll suggestion came from member Dubby, who submitted the idea today~
Simple poll, so no need to explain it.

Previous Poll:
Question: What makes a manga?
Art - votes: 1396 (19.9%)
Plot - votes: 3199 (45.6%)
Characters - votes: 1637 (23.3%)
Originality - votes: 743 (10.6%)
Popularity - votes: 36 (0.5%)
There were 7011 total votes.
The poll ended: March 29th 2008

So the interesting plot wins~ I think I should have put stuff in like "humor" and some other choices, oh well...
