New Poll - 2014 FIFA World Cup
As MewMan reminded me, I really should have done this poll last week, but I forgot... The poll only contains the countries that haven't yet been eliminated. However, by the time you vote in the poll, it's entirely possible your top choice is already gone... We did a similar poll 4 years ago, and the top picks by MU were Brazil, Germany, and Spain (in that order). Let's see what happens this time!

And for all you people who don't care about soccer/football, too bad.

You can submit poll ideas here (and try to keep them manga/anime-related)

I'm actually surprised. This is more evenly spread out than I expected. My guess was that the higher population choices would have many more votes, but I guess not...

New Poll - City Size
It's not related to manga, but I wanted to do this poll suggested by our member icassop. How big of a city is the place that you live? If you're not sure, look it up! Google is your best friend! For me, I live in the giant city of Los Angeles. You know it's huge because of the amount of traffic.

Mangatraders Hacked, and How it Affects MU
As some of you may already know, Mangatraders was hacked and a bunch of usernames, emails, and passwords (apparently in unsalted MD5) was released onto the Internet. Rest assured, it does not appear MangaUpdates has been hacked. However, a significant number of emails in the list from MangaTraders match user accounts on MangaUpdates. If you had an account on MangaTraders, it is advised that you change your account here.

New Poll - Physical Manga
This week's poll wasn't asked by a specific person, but rather it was prompted as I read a suggestion by our member psycho-shocker, which was sort of related to the actual poll. Do you own physical manga? Like volumes (tanks) or even magazines? And if so, how much? Ya, I generalized the options, but hey, it's a simple poll!

I kind of wish I had put a 2003 option just to see how many people would choose that option. FYI, MU was started July 20, 2004

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).
