New Poll - MU Years
Technically this poll would be better suited in a couple of months (July 20, to be precise), but hey, I want in on this! Since early 2005 for me. Man, it's been a long time... Those high school days, lol.

New Poll - Anime Diverges
This week's poll from Baniita is slightly confusing if you don't read it carefully. Let's assume you're watching an anime that's based on a manga series. It starts off following the plot of the manga, but then you notice that it diverges and goes off to do its own thing (and let's assume it's non-filler episodes). Would you keep watching the show? One of the best examples I can think of is the first anime series of Fullmetal Alchemist (which I actually liked).

New Poll - Sailor Moon
This week's poll is from OrchardPetalLullaby. I basically chose it in honor of the newly announced Sailor Moon series. However, I've personally never watched it myself, so I know exactly how I'm gonna vote!

New Poll - Cosplay Opposites
This week's poll was a suggestion from our member butako chan. Would you cosplay as a character from the opposite gender? Perhaps you already have. Or maybe you'll never cosplay at all... (I personally fall in this latter camp). But ya, poll away!

New Poll - Can't Sleep
This week's poll from icassop is just a random one. For most people, there's just those times where you're deprived of your beauty sleep and probably feel really drained the next morning. What's the most common reason this happens to you? And my assumption is that no one always gets the perfect amount of sleep their entire life. I'm guessing it's a safe assumption.

Yes, a lot of people said they'd have picked the option where they'd enjoy the original the most, but I was trying to avoid that option in particular, hence not having it as a choice.

New Poll - Mediums
This week's poll is from our member psycho-shocker. I was struggling on how to word this one. Basically, take your favorite series. Now imagine there's an anime version, a manga version, a light novel version, and a live action movie version. They're all pretty good (so the anime doesn't have too many fillers, etc). Which medium do you think you'd enjoy the most for this series? Or maybe you like them all equally?

Judging from the comments, this poll was quite divisive... I'm a bit surprised that josei is so much lower though (compared to the others of the first four choices).
