How do you feel when a mangaka makes different characters look/act the same between different, unrelated series?
Ruins it for me
A little confusing
Annoying or boring
Perfectly fine about it
Don't care

Recent Outage Due to DMCA Request
This news post is a bit late, but that's because we were trying to investigate and obtain responses from all the parties involved.

Our recent downtime last week was a result of two DMCA requests. It was from an intermediary on behalf of two different companies. Unfortunately, our host did not notify us and instead disabled our IP address immediately. The most recent requests were due to displaying copyrighted cover art. As some of you have noticed, we have removed the images from some respective series pages (hopefully temporarily). We are currently in the process of looking for another host. It is unacceptable to cause severe downtime without forwarding the requests to us and allowing us to respond. It is likewise poor form by the intermediary to use such tactics without attempting to contact us directly.

Thank you, MU Staff

Mangaupdates Global Site Downtime

The recent downtime was (is still) being caused by our host. It turns out that one of our IP addresses in our virtual network has stopped responding to requests on ports 80 or 443.

I've moved to a different IP and updated DNS, but it will take up to a day for the DNS updates to traverse the globe and become effective for everyone.

Sorry for the trouble. We're sending in a support ticket, so maybe they can help us figure out what's wrong.

New Poll - First Fandom
As PinkShippuden suggests (and 狂気 helped add some options), we all had to have started somewhere to get into this fandom of the anime/manga world. So of the media choices, which was your first introduction into this world of delights? My first would probably have to be the original Pokemon TV series, which started getting popular around my 3rd grade.

Started from the bottom and now we're here. Not that Pokemon was the bottom. Far from it. Ah, memories...

It's like video game developers. If I like Mass Effect, chances are I'll like the other Bioware games.
