This week's poll was suggested by our member AmDnim. When you're checking for the existence of a new release, what's the first place you go to? MangaUpdates of course! (Maybe... that's the whole point of the poll)

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

Previous Poll Results:
Question: Who do you think will win the FIFA World Cup?
Algeria - votes: 83 (0.9%)
Argentina - votes: 456 (4.8%)
Belgium - votes: 120 (1.3%)
Bosnia and Herzegovina - votes: 33 (0.3%)
Brazil - votes: 1693 (17.9%)
Chile - votes: 183 (1.9%)
Colombia - votes: 101 (1.1%)
Costa Rica - votes: 176 (1.9%)
Croatia - votes: 40 (0.4%)
Ecuador - votes: 21 (0.2%)
France - votes: 614 (6.5%)
Germany - votes: 2178 (23%)
Ghana - votes: 49 (0.5%)
Greece - votes: 90 (1%)
Honduras - votes: 13 (0.1%)
Iran - votes: 68 (0.7%)
Italy - votes: 195 (2.1%)
Ivory Coast - votes: 46 (0.5%)
Japan - votes: 513 (5.4%)
Mexico - votes: 267 (2.8%)
Netherlands - votes: 1109 (11.7%)
Nigeria - votes: 53 (0.6%)
Portugal - votes: 101 (1.1%)
Russia - votes: 170 (1.8%)
South Korea - votes: 171 (1.8%)
Switzerland - votes: 41 (0.4%)
United States - votes: 741 (7.8%)
Uruguay - votes: 126 (1.3%)
There were 9451 total votes.
The poll ended: June 27th 2014

Germany, Brazil, Netherlands... Pretty similar to what you guys thought 4 years ago (except that Spain's already gone, so they weren't even included in this poll). Netherlands has a much higher vote than last time though! Good for them! But hey, at least USA got out of the group of death!

A just ruler amongst tyrants

Now it's just MU, it used to be Online reader sites, but I often forgot which mangas I was reading.
But .... I kind of stopped reading so many ongoing series ...yet I still constantly check out the release page on MU.

Yes yes, I know I make longwinded comments, but that's just me >.<
I should proof read my comments more, but I won't...
So keep in mind I'm filled with typos

I definitely see those three making it far, at least two of them I see in the semi-finals! Hah, nice to see that Algeria, Nigeria, and Switzerland have surprised many. :3

First place I check for releases is MU. I used to check some scanlator site's Twitter/FB though, sometimes those were more quickly updated than IRC.

Used to only read manga I was interested in because of anime. That was back in the day when there were almost no manga aggregator sites so you had to google and hope. That is how i found this site.

Now I use this site as a Hub for all my manga needs. All hail to Mangaupdates !!!

Have always been using 'MangaUpdates' to check for releases on a daily basis on my android phone so having an app would be better smile wink grin

Haven't tried following scanlation groups on their twitter/fb/website since it's kind of time consuming especially when your following lots of Manga and LN and those with ireggular releases.

That's what we're here for. Used Batoto for a while but with my growing reading list there's no other option but MU. Not that I mind.

Now that MU doesn't have links to scanlators I pretty much just moved to online readers. So I just added Batoto to my RSS feed

i used Batato for the most part, 'cuz i can see on the homepage if something's released.

i frequently check Easy Going Scans's site because they release a lot of mangas I read.

i use MU a lot , but not for checking releases, unless it's a series I've just started reading.
