New Poll - European Comics
A few months ago, we did a poll about American comics. residentgrigo felt it would be fair to do a similar poll for our friends in Europe. I'm not expecting this to be a popular poll, but oh well. I don't believe I've ever read any European comic, not even The Adventures of Tintin.

New Poll - Religion
This week's poll was suggested by residentgrigo. Normally I'd avoid this kind of poll, but we can be mature about it, right? The available options obviously don't cover all the bases and oversimplifies much, but it should cover most cases to a certain degree. If you don't know what some of the words mean, use Google. It'll give a much better definition than I can.

New Poll - Manga Medium
This week's poll from Akatsubaki is about how you like to read your manga. First is the distinction between physical and digital, then you have a question on type of device, of which the main difference is screen size.

I just realized I should've put "Angsty" as an option. Like in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix where Harry starts having all this teenage angst and you really just want to smack him in the side of the head for everything he does or says. Never underestimate the "power" of teenage angst.

New Poll - Bad Characteristics
This week's poll is from our member Dehandima. It's a bit of an unusual one. I realize that I can't cover all the personalities traits, so vote on the ones available. I deliberately left out positive traits (besides being too perfect), so no option for being a goody-two-shoes.

New Poll - Classic Manga
This week's poll was suggested by Akatsubaki. Have you read "classic" manga series before, and if so, when was the last time you read one? Feel free to name some of your favorite classics! By classic, I'm talking about series that ended ages ago (like pre-2000), such as Dragon Ball, Nausicaa of the Valley of Wind, Drifting Classroom, Ranma 1/2, Rurouni Kenshin, Akira, Fist of the North Star, Tokyo Babylon, Fushigi Yuugi, and Itazura na Kiss.

Choices:
All the details are awesome! - votes: 2512 (39.4%)
Not important at all, so don't include them - votes: 1700 (26.7%)
No opinion - votes: 2160 (33.9%)
There were 6372 total votes.
The poll ended: August 26th 2016

I guess it depends on the details... I always wondered what this obsession with blood type was about.
