Subs for the win! Too bad most anime isn't sold as sub-only in the US...

New Poll - Foreign Films
This week's poll was suggested by our member Transdude1996. When watching a foreign film, do you just watch in the native language (that you probably don't understand), go for the subs, go for the dub, or maybe you don't care? And by "foreign film," I mean a movie that's not in a language that you readily understand.

Edit: Changed the choices a little due to popular demand

Ya, I agree it sucks if you can barely tell the characters apart. There's a school of thought that a character should be recognizable just by their silhouette, which applies to any visual medium.

New Poll - Hating Art
This week's poll is from our member 007demosthenes. When you dislike a manga for its art, what are you most nitpicky about? And for once, there's an "Other" option. Post a comment if your choice isn't in that list!

Did the quiet, the stoic, or the good-looking part win? Probably the last one... Reminds me of the character type of "tall, dark, and handsome" in literature.

Site Updates Completed
All,

I have just applied some updates to modernize the back-end MangaUpdates code. If you find errors, strange behavior or functionality that doesn't appear to work like it did before, please report it here or in the Bugs forum.

The only new feature I added was the addition of the "year" parameter in the "What's New" section of the site. I'm sad to say this was mostly a back-end update, and no fresh new eye candy.

Thanks!

New Poll - Favorite Character Type
This week's poll comes from our member PinkShippuden. The given list of character types is not exhaustive, but just choose the one that you like best. Come on, you gotta at least like one of those character tropes... (although yes, some of them are cliche)

Sometimes - votes: 3990 (29.8%)

Excluding the winning "Sometimes" option, it seems the rest of the choices are pretty evenly split. Not a common occurrence... *gasp*

New Poll - Noise Reactions
This week's poll is from our member icassop. Do you react audibly to the manga that you read? I think I'll give a "wow" or "omg" every once in a while, but most of the time I'm pretty quiet when reading.

Question: Over the years, the average scanlation quality has...
Choices:
Improved significantly - votes: 4884 (47.9%)
Improved slightly - votes: 3063 (30.1%)
Stayed about the same - votes: 1668 (16.4%)
Dropped slightly - votes: 413 (4.1%)
Dropped significantly - votes: 162 (1.6%)
There were 10190 total votes.
The poll ended: August 30th 2013

In my opinion, editing and scan quality has gotten much better. Translations in general have gotten better. However, proofreading remains a problem for many groups.
