Welcome to Baka-Updates - Manga Division

Manga is basically the Japanese equivalent of what you might know as comic books. They have a very unique style which has developed over many years. We hope here you can learn to appreciate the art that is manga and become an avid manga fan!

Happy 20th!
Hey all!

Thank you all for your continued support! We're still working behind the scenes to make the site better. Stay tuned!

New Poll - Lights while Sleeping
This week's poll was suggested by VawX. Is there a light on when you normally sleep? To be honest, I can't imagine trying to sleep with a light on anymore. It's hard for me to sleep without complete darkness now.
