New Poll - Other Manga Activities
This week's poll by mattfabb would actually work best if you could select multiple choices, but that's not possible with our current website, so deal with it. Just choose the option that most applies.

You can submit poll ideas here (and try to keep them manga/anime-related)
http://www.mangaupdates.com/showtopic.php?tid=3903

Previous Poll Results:
Question: You find a reportedly good completed series with both a manga and anime adaptation. All other things being equal, which do you choose?
Choices:
Read manga first, watch anime later - votes: 4105 (43.1%)
Watch anime first, read manga later - votes: 2949 (31%)
Only watch the anime - votes: 701 (7.4%)
Only read the manga - votes: 1759 (18.5%)
There were 9514 total votes.
The poll ended: January 9th 2016

Some people didn't realize what "all other things being equal" means. Sigh...

New Poll - Another Anime vs. Manga
Happy New Year!

This week's post comes from our member VawX. Let's assume you find a good completed series that has both an anime adaptation and a manga adaptation. With all other things being equal (such as quality, plot, etc), which media would you consume? I left out choices between which one was the original adaptation or which got farther in the plot, so this is just between the merits of still images vs. moving images.

The poll ended: January 1st 2016

I guess the smirk option is a bit unfair... I'm wondering what would've won if I took out that choice. Although "Fufufufu" did win of the other choices!

Lots of votes this time around, for a very controversial poll. Oddly enough, I'm surprised that the most popular option was "Nothing really bothers me"...

New Poll - Blood Boil

Now I'm curious how many people like the gender-bender type of series. Ranma 1/2, anyone? I guess if it's built into the series, it's okay, but if a series unexpectedly had a character change their gender, it'd be really weird.

New Poll - Character Shift
This week's poll by StephKuran is a bit harder to pin down. Imagine your favorite manga character was changed by the author in some way. Which type of changes would annoy you the most or make you the most mad? It technically depends on why you like that character, but that's what the comments are for!

Of course most of us would just do nothing, but I surprising number of you would look for the raws!
