New Mascot Chosen!!!!!!!!!
I am happy to announce that we now have a new mascot!
(Read further for some details of WHAT we're gonna do with this winner! Including official MangaUpdates t-shirts!)

Blakraven66's entry of "MAD J. MU" won by a huge margin (just see the numbers for yourself: http://www.mangaupdates.com/showtopic.php?tid=5823). And now, the winning entry on display!

And for his personal background info:
Name: MAD J. MU (the name comes from the first letter of the first names of me, both my parents and my four little brothers + MU as the last name)
Work: Drawing on MS paint with mouse - 8 minutes, Coloring on Adobe Photoshop CS2 - 15 minutes
Inspiration: Gir from Invader Zim
Character design goes to my little brothers (yup, they're twins) anima-xiii from DevArt
How represents MU: loves manga to the point of insanity, He is what he is because he was made from different parts just as the MU community is made up of different people
Example:

Now, I bet you guys are wondering what we're gonna do with our new mascot, eh? Hopefully within the next 2 months, we will have a new site design that features this mascot! (possible color changes though...). So just hang in tight and you'll be seeing this baby everyone soon~

And maybe some of you remembered, but we are getting t-shirts for MangaUpdates! They will of course feature our winner~ More information on that later though...(Personally, I'm hoping they'll be ready in time for AnimeExpo in early July, but that's probably not gonna happen sad )

Edit: To clarify, we will be selling the t-shirts online. The part about AnimeExpo was my hopes that they be ready by the time of AnimeExpo, which is July 3-6

Awwrite, I am getting quite bored of this
light blue skin anyway. It reminds me of
a hospital ward.

please ... PLEASE ... do NOT change the color to something harmfull or distracting or uncorfortable!

some of the best sites on the internet have made that mistake and its, at the same time a pity and awfull when it happens ... its like the life-force of the website is drained!

do NOT screw the colors because of the mascot (which, btw, its awesome!) blue its perfect and paceful ... just remenber your design/human-computer interaction classes!

come on ... don't do the same mistake!

PS: have you notice how google takes care of its homepage ... clear, simple, understandable ... to the limit of perfection!

Hope Blakraven66 could make a few more versions for the site. A short series or even a few comic strips would liven up the place.

I'll probably miss the current color scheme. The current site is easy on the ol' burned out eyes. Then again I've setup my desktop to look like I'm stuck in windows '95. Same dirty keyboard actually...

but...I really like the blue....

Please add a choose skin option. The new mascot is cute, but I would hate to have those colors in a layout 0.0

Thats just my opinion though ;)

Zombie pikachu wins it, is anyone surprised?

As long as it's not hot pink for the new colour scheme, it'll be good.

Have a setting to change the colour settings for those of us who do not wish to see a yellow and brown layout.
