New Poll - Can't Sleep
This week's poll from icassop is just a random one. For most people, there's just those times where you're deprived of your beauty sleep and probably feel really drained the next morning. What's the most common reason this happens to you? And my assumption is that no one always gets the perfect amount of sleep their entire life. I'm guessing it's a safe assumption.

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

Previous Poll Results:
Question: Assuming your favorite series is on many mediums, and they're all good, but which do you enjoy the most?
The manga - votes: 6361 (53.6%)
The anime - votes: 2489 (21%)
The light novel - votes: 879 (7.4%)
The game - votes: 287 (2.4%)
The live action movie - votes: 56 (0.5%)
I enjoy them all equally - votes: 1796 (15.1%)
There were 11868 total votes.
The poll ended: May 3rd 2014

Yes, a lot of people said they'd have picked the option where they'd enjoy the original the most, but I was trying to avoid that option in particular, hence not having it as a choice.

New Poll - Mediums
This week's poll is from our member psycho-shocker. I was struggling on how to word this one. Basically, take your favorite series. Now imagine there's an anime version, a manga version, a light novel version, and a live action movie version. They're all pretty good (so the anime doesn't have too many fillers, etc). Which medium do you think you'd enjoy the most for this series? Or maybe you like them all equally?

Judging from the comments, this poll was quite divisive... I'm a bit surprised that josei is so much lower though (compared to the others of the first four choices).

New Poll - Most Read Demographic
This week's poll is from our member Eternal_rain. We're not asking what your favorite demographic is. Instead, which is your most read one? It's a slightly different question, although you may have the same answer for both.

New Poll - Manga vs. Anime (Time)
This week's poll is by our member 8-3. In terms of the amount of time you spend with anime and manga (or I guess cartoons vs. graphic novels), which do you do more of? A typical anime episode is 22-ish minutes, while reading 18 pages of manga is about 5 min or less.

New Poll - Crying
This week's poll is from Meer2703. Of the choices given, which form of entertainment enables you to cry the most? Personally, I'm gonna have to say novels. Reading Dumbledore die for the first time just killed me...

Quite a nice bell curve. Now I'm curious about how long some of us have been around MU... And a little tidbit: I didn't go back and double check this, but I think this has been our most popular poll ever. Probably because you can't possible disagree about your own age. And you also don't need to think which answer to choose.

April Fools' Day Warning
In a few days is the infamous April Fools' Day (April 1st). At MU, we WILL NOT tolerate any fake/joke releases being reported/announced to us (on any day, not just April Fools). If we, by accident, allow a fake release to get through, please report the mistake to us (either via a Change Request form, through the forum, post a comment in this news post, or you can email me at lambchopsil[at]mangaupdates[dot]com if you are not a registered member here).

As you have been warned against doing it, if we discover a person still attempting to post a joke release here, that person will be dealt with. Severe action will be taken upon that scanlation group.

Thank you for considering our request to remain as accurate as possible for our members.

Some people seem to think this news post is a joke or something similar. I assure you, I am being totally serious. Don't take it lightly.

And we can figure out if someone is trying to frame a group. We're not naive, so don't even try.

PS: Yes, I did an exact copy/paste from last year's warning. Too lazy to write up something new.
