New Poll - Hentai
I must apologize since I actually forgot to change the poll due to all the family stuff that was going on during the Thanksgiving holidays. It's the first time that I haven't done a weekly poll in time (since we started doing this all the way back in the beginning of 2008). Well, here you go. This week's poll comes from a suggestion from our member psycho-shocker. What level of sexuality do you prefer in your manga? I shouldn't really have to explain this one...

Apparently people are disagreeing over the definition of hentai and whether yaoi/yuri should be choices. For the purposes of this poll, hentai means any material that is 18+ (I live in the US) in a sexual manner, whether that be heterosexual or homosexual. Borderline H is basically almost there, but not quite. Ecchi is limited to maybe a boob flash or something like that.

And PS3 wins this one! I actually bought a PS3 during Black Friday... I'm primarily a PC gamer, but I decided to get the PS3 since it was a good deal and I want to finally play some PS3 exclusives (like The Last of Us, Ni no Kuni, Uncharted, Beyond: Two Souls, Metal Gear Solid, some Final Fantasty, etc)

New Poll - Last Gen Consoles
This exact poll was done over 5 years ago. With all the next-gen consoles released now, I felt it was time to bring this one back. Previously, PS3 won by a mere 4 votes (over the Wii). How will things fare this time? In the comments, feel free to list why you like each console and your favorite games for them. Me, I'm a PC gamer... My family's only owned Nintendo products, as I have many siblings (multiplayer components were huge factors in buying console games for the family). But man, I do want those other consoles for those juicy exclusives...

Question: How many series do you estimate that you have finished? (Oneshots are fine, doujinshi don't count, and series must be completed)

300-500 - votes: 1914 (14.3%)

Excluding the 1000+ option, it's a pretty nice curve! I'm somewhere in the 100-300 range probably.

New Poll - Completed Series
This week's poll is the brainchild of our member kelly123456000. How many series do you think that you've completed in your entire life? For the purposes of our poll, let's say that the series itself must be completed (so no putting Kochikame on that list). Oneshots are fine, but doujinshi don't count. (Here at MangaUpdates, we consider any non-official work that is based on an official series as a doujinshi. If it's original, it's a oneshot). Well, I guess if you read a lot of oneshots, then your numbers will naturally be a lot higher. Just an estimate is fine!

New Poll - Mascot Characters
This week's poll about mascot characters comes from the mind of our member BlackOrion. Specifically, we're talking about mascot characters that happen to be small animals. Or I guess you could mean Haro from the Gundam series. Or like how some witches or sorcerers have familiars. Mahou Sensei Negima!'s Chamo? Kero from Card Captor Sakura? Could even simply be a pet cat or dog like in Pastel. Like them? Hate them? Your vote!

Hmm, seems like many of you don't like spoilers and wouldn't want to subject someone else to spoilers unless they wanted. You're too nice~

New Poll - Spoilers
This week's poll comes from nowyat. Let's pretend you somehow had knowledge of a spoiler for an anime or manga and no one else in the world knew about it. Assume that this spoiler is bigger than Harry Potter dying, or Snape kills Dumbledore, or "Luke, I am your father" (misquote on purpose), or the Red Wedding. (Side note, but if you don't know even one of the above references... Please, get out of the rock you're hiding under). Anyways, the poll is about what you would do with such knowledge. There's even a "Don't care" option that isn't worded as "Don't care"! Hopefully that appeases the lot of you...

When a good series stops being scanlated because it's not popular - votes: 3387 (26%)

The poll ended: October 26th 2013

This poll sure sparked a lot of debate and discussion. Do people even care about speed scanlations anymore? Doesn't seem like it...
