Has your taste in manga changed since you first started reading it?
It totally turned a 180
Got more broad, so I like a wider variety of series
Got narrower, so my preferred series are very specific
Stayed pretty much the same

Well when i just started i didn't want to read certain types of manga, but now I have a much broader range of what i want to read. If only i had time to read it all... ...
New Poll - American Comics
(32 posts, 734 views) Posted: 16d 23h, 59m ago by Trimutius in News
Quote from lambchopsil
So if the series has a strong female lead that grows a lot, then we're golden?

Well. One Piece, Skip Beat and Berserk for example do fall under both of this categories, though in different ways. One piece and Skip Beat are definitely 10 ...

I randomly read some american web comics. So decided to vote "Just a little" ...
New Poll - Categories
(21 posts, 760 views) Posted: 24d 0h, 26m ago by Trimutius in News
I am like "wow they chose my proposal". And then I realized that I don't remember what I was going to vote for. So I had to think about it all over again. But it has to be Character Growth I suppose. ...
New Poll - Forgetting the Story
(16 posts, 545 views) Posted: 30d 23h, 5m ago by Trimutius in News
Well I can still remeber series which were not updated for a year, but the ones that had last chpater translated 450-500 days ago or earlier I can't really remember already. So I suppose over a year. ...
New Poll - Preferred Ending
(19 posts, 769 views) Posted: 37d 22h, 34m ago by Trimutius in News
Well 501+ is possible... I was doing that when I had nothing to do the whole week... those times are long gone...

As for current question. I prefer no ending at all (love ongoings), but it isn't really possible, because mangakas tend to be humans, who don't liv ...
New Poll - How Much You Read
(13 posts, 695 views) Posted: 44d 23h, 56m ago by Trimutius in News
I definitely read more than 21 per week. If I pick up something it may be even over 100 in just the weekend alone. And if i'm on vacation I might read 100 chapters per day... for example I have read 600 chapters of One Piece in just a single week of vacation ...
New Poll - Contacting the Creator
(16 posts, 769 views) Posted: 51d 10h, 9m ago by Trimutius in News
Well I have written to one amateur flash game designer once, and ended up doing scripts for him. (somehow it went that way, but he was actually asking for help with scripts, that is why I have contacted him in the first place)
But I wouldn't call it contacting an a ...
New Poll - Reread a Series
(17 posts, 935 views) Posted: 59d 0h, 4m ago by Trimutius in News
I reread series from time to time, especially if they are on a short side (1-5 volumes), but I think it is still below 10 times for any particular one, so voted 4-10. ...
New Poll - Kidnapped Daughter
(37 posts, 2227 views) Posted: 72d 23h, 39m ago by Trimutius in News
Previous poll was kinda obvious.

This time... well I suppose I will bargain with them. Who knows maybe it is just some Romeo and Juliet stuff and my daughter just fell in love with some demon, I can just bless them and have some half-demon grandkids.

Am I reading to ...
New Poll - Good Plot But Bad Art
(36 posts, 2315 views) Posted: 86d 23h, 20m ago by Trimutius in News
I have read some stories with no good artwork, some of them even to the end. What is important to me is always plot. Fortunately good plot but bad artwork is rare combination. (I don't care about art style though, so i consider many artworks to be good)
Th ...
New Poll - Your Occupation
(35 posts, 2942 views) Posted: 93d 23h, 19m ago by Trimutius in News
Well I am a full-time software developer. (Or as my official title goes "C++ engineer", though I do not only c++, but bash, node js and perl too (and know some other languages, but I haven't used those at work) ...
New Poll - Another Anime vs. Manga
(28 posts, 2241 views) Posted: 136d 23h, 43m ago by Trimutius in News
I generally don't like adaptations. That is why I only read manga in such cases. For example I never watched One Piece or Fairy Tail anime, even though I like mangas... ...
New Poll - Bad Scanlations
(55 posts, 3944 views) Posted: 156d 22h, 49m ago by Trimutius in News
Well, for me it is like this:
If English translation is bad I try to find Russian (and hope it isn't a second-hand translation from English), if both are bad or no Russian exists, then I just read bad one, for the most part my understanding is enough to correct in my head ...
New Poll - New Words/Terms
(16 posts, 1595 views) Posted: 184d 22h, 12m ago by Trimutius in News
I usually go to Wikipedia. Or if it is a slang word then urban dictionary. I usually read everything on my phone, so going old school is too much of a hassle. But first thing that shows up in Google is also not my thing (unless that first thing is Wikipedia or urban dictionary) ...
New Poll - Web Novels
(35 posts, 2828 views) Posted: 212d 18h, 31m ago by Trimutius in News
I read quite a number of novels. But not so much anymore, I wish I had more time to read, I have more than 30 novels on my wish list.

P.S. 2 of the novels are actually sitting in my wish list since I registered on the manga updates. I want to read them but they are long a ...

Quote from sara..
I love this
hope it get chosen with some edits

Well I kinda made it somewhat long question so that the concept is understood. Making a shorter question probably would make more sense. Like:

Which of the following categories is most important/aw ...
Site Manga Poll Suggestions
(2193 posts, 574020 views) Posted: 219d 23h, 13m ago by Trimutius in Manga General
Well, I thought about something manga related, or actually mangaupdates related even, but still about manga. I have chosen the most agreed to categories (not most used, but most agreed, meaning that they are from popular series)

Which of the most agreed to ca ...
New Poll - Best Josei
(20 posts, 2134 views) Posted: 233d 23h, 33m ago by Trimutius in News
Out of the list I have only read Gokusen and 07-Ghost, they are ok, but not enough for me to give a vote. Personally my favourite josei is Midnight Secretary. If Annarasumanara would make a cut I would have voted for it, or at least Hapi Mari. But as it stands now I w ...
New Poll - Best Seinen
(30 posts, 2812 views) Posted: 241d 0h, 22m ago by Trimutius in News
Dance in the Vampire Bund is my actual favorite... but didn't make cut at all =(
Oh well, voted for Berserk... because in the list other than Berserk and Hoshi no sumidere I didn't even read anything, and don't want to based on description... ...
New Poll - Best Shoujo
(54 posts, 3909 views) Posted: 247d 23h, 22m ago by Trimutius in News
Kaichou wa maid-sama didn't make it? That one I consider to be one of the best mangas (irrelevant of genre), though ending there wasn't all that good I agree.

But anyway I consider Skip beat to be 10/10 too, so I voted for skip beat... because it is the o ...
Suggestions for categories
(3 posts, 329 views) Posted: 250d 8h, 56m ago by Trimutius in Suggestions & Bugs
Doesn't anyone thinks about it anythint at all? Or nobody cares that much about categories? It is just that I want them to really be a guide, but as it stands now it is really easy to vandalize them, and almost impossible to fix the vandalism without asking admins to ...
New Poll - Best Shounen (besides One Piece)
(48 posts, 3490 views) Posted: 254d 22h, 42m ago by Trimutius in News
Voted for Alchemist, but feel kinda bad about it. Because it is not one of my favorite shounens, even if you exclude One Piece (which is one of my favorites)
Alchemist is the one that I like more from the list, but i voted 9.8/10 for it. 10/10 shounens for are the followin ...

Well... Then they probably should make it more obvious, though I admit that I forgot to check if MU search engine is done with some standard solutions... ...
Suggestions for categories

Hello everyone. I actually have been mingling with Categories for quiet a long time. (actually since I became an updater in 2011, because my reason for becoming an updater was to add some categories to one manhwa that I liked)

It is very awesome tool. But it has ...
