New Poll - Wrong Genre
This week's poll comes from our member TAK3Z0. Would you read a series from your favorite author but is heavily focused on a genre that you really dislike (i.e., harem)? Probably doesn't occur too often in actuality, but comment below if this actually happened to you before!

Filter Types (such as Novel) for New Releases, Stats & Series pages

I've added a new option in the user profile to filter series of selected type(s) from the releases, series, and stats pages. It's a long time coming.

New Poll - RPG Class
This week's fun poll was suggested by Lost Rabbit. The list of classes isn't exhaustive, but it should cover most of the bases except for the specialized stuff like dragon knight or death knight...

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

Previous Poll Results:
Question: Has your taste in manga changed since you first started reading it?
It totally turned a 180 - votes: 467 (5.9%)
Got more broad, so I like a wider variety of series - votes: 4453 (56.7%)
Got narrower, so my preferred series are very specific - votes: 1837 (23.4%)
Stayed pretty much the same - votes: 1103 (14%)
There were 7860 total votes.
The poll ended: May 28th 2016

Oh wow, most people opened up their horizons

New Poll - Changing Tastes
This week's poll is from our member scsijon. Since you started reading manga (which for me was 12-ish years ago), how has your preferences changed over the years? Do you like the same kind of stuff still?

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

Previous Poll Results:
Question: Do you believe that loli and shota manga should not exist?
Yes, they should never exist - votes: 2255 (32%)
No, it's just fiction - votes: 4787 (68%)
There were 7042 total votes.
The poll ended: May 21st 2016

Sorry, if I had realized that we had done a poll similar to this before, I would never have chosen it. Honestly, I feel the older poll was a lot better (the one that ended on November 22, 2014)

Yo Manga vs. Hey Manga
Over the last couple of weeks, there's been some disputes between the scanlation group Yo Manga and the aggregate/scanlation group

  • YoManga accused HeyManga of using their raws without credit and hosting their releases without permission. And apparently the hosting is automated, as I've seen it happen within minutes of the release going up...
  • HeyManga ignores the accusations and threatens with DDoS
  • YoManga's site goes down due to DDoS (although no one can pin it on HeyManga)
  • When YoManga comes back up, they start hosting HeyManga's releases without permission (and removing HeyManga's credit pages)

So it's basically like fighting fire with fire. Neither side appears to be letting up. Even earlier today, YoManga put up HeyManga's releases of Si-Eun.

In response, we've removed all of both groups' releases from MangaUpdates.
