New Poll - What is this Feeling?
This week's fun little poll was suggested by Natsuyasumin. The intent is that manga often has a panel of "what is this feeling?", so fill in the blank. I also put in my own troll answers that have nothing to do with manga... Obviously not all-inclusive of every emotion you could possibly feel.

Yes, I understand that your answer depends on how good you think the series is. That's why I said it "seems alright". But anyways, most of you read pretty quickly!

New Poll - Chicken or the Egg?
This week's poll comes from Karonhioktha. Since you're on this site, I'm assuming you're part of the fandom of anime/manga. Looking back, how did you originally begin getting interested in this stuff? Maybe a specific series if you remember?

For me, it was definitely the anime that aired on Kids WB. It was the original Pokemon series and Cardcaptor Sakura! Didn't have cable TV, so no Toonami/Adult Swim, and I missed out on Gundam and Dragon Ball Z.

New Poll - April Fools' Scanlator Jokes
Since it's April Fools' Day, why not make a poll about it? This is the same poll that we did 2 years ago

Previous Poll Results:
Question: Are/were you a member of an anime/manga club at your school?
Yes! - votes: 773 (11.7%)
No, none of my schools have an anime/manga club - votes: 4620 (69.7%)
No, there was an anime/manga club, but I never joined - votes: 1235 (18.6%)

So of the people with such a club at their school, most don't join said club. Not sharing the love, eh?

April Fools' Day Warning
In a few days is the infamous April Fools' Day (April 1st). At MU, we WILL NOT tolerate any fake/joke releases being reported/announced to us (on any day, not just April Fools). If we, by accident, allow a fake release to get through, please report the mistake to us (either via a Change Request form, through the forum, post a comment in this news post, or you can email me at lambchopsil[at]mangaupdates[dot]com if you are not a registered member here).

As you have been warned against doing it, if we discover a person still attempting to post a joke release here, that person will be dealt with. Severe action will be taken upon that scanlation group.

Thank you for considering our request to remain as accurate as possible for our members.

New Poll - Anime/Manga Club
This week's poll comes from Flowerty123. You can answer for all the schools you've ever attended (even if that was many years ago). For myself, I was actually the vice president of my high school anime club. In college though, I didn't join the anime club on campus, as I was busy doing other stuff.
