It's amazing how our perception of a "decade" changes with age. When we're kids, and know other younger kids who's turned ten or so, we just think something like "oh, they're 10 now." And same goes for when we turn ~20. But thinking ahead, when decades means becoming 30 or 40, we don't like it so much any more and even kind of terrifying. I don't even dare guess what parents think when their kids turn 10...

Dear MU,

Congratulations on turning 10!
Once again, there have been a lot of setbacks since we celebrated your birthday a year ago: People tried to take you down, you lost some of your long-term playmates, your newspaper got cancelled, and even some of your friends turned their backs on you. But still, you're here today to enjoy your first round birthday thanks to your staff's hard work and dedication. No matter who came to do harm, they are the ones who nurtured, supported and defended you against all odds just like a real family would. I'm grateful to them for taking such good care of you.

Even though you had to endure all those hardships, let's not forget all the good and funny moments: Your father got your newest check-up done, you learnt to be patient for the first time, 324170 friends came to visit you over the years and they talked to you about 46680 topics.
I for one have met many interesting people in your forums which provided me with the rare opportunity to discuss my hobby in depth. You fuel my hunger for manga and satisfy it at the same time. Thank you for the good time so far and keep on rocking!

Yours,
Trip

Happy 10th Birthday MU!
It's been 6 years since the first time i found MU eek and has been 5 years since i sign up to track progress of the mangas that i've read so far. It's been a very nice trip throughout the years I've spent on manga/ manhua/ LN I spent with MU eyes and i hope it'll continue till i can't go on anymore laugh

THIS SITE IS WONDERFUL. I first started using it when I got interested in manga 4 years ago. I was lucky to find BakaUpdates quickly. The world of manga on the web was initially confusing and overwhelming to me. Without BU to be my starting point for finding good manga, I would probably have dropped the project of learning about manga, and so missed 4 years of interest and pleasure!

I've been with this site on and off for 7 years. I'm so grateful that the MU crew has dedicated so much time to this site and helping our knowledge on manga expand. Without you guys, I wouldn't be so dedicated to reading manga. My taste are so refined now! *sticks out pinky finger*

With the warmest regards,
A Nerdy Cat Lady
