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!

New Poll - Video Game Olympics
This week's poll was suggested by jacob66. Imagine the Olympics had a video game category. What would you want them to compete in? I realize that not every category is an option in the poll, such as strategy. I was just thinking it would be cool if people from each country played as their own country in a massive Europa Universalis IV game (although it would be pretty unfair)

New Poll - Award Winning Series
This week's poll was suggested by Midlife_otaku, although I changed it up a little. Has winning an award ever influenced you in whether you read a series or not? Maybe it was the reason you even heard of the series in the first place.

New Poll - Comments Section
This week's poll was suggested by Afiaki. Does a comments section for a series yield value to the community? We've actually thought about this for a while. Did you know that currently every single series has its own forum? Go to any series page and look for the "Forum" field
